There are several possible uses of the Class II hydrophobin HFBII in clinical applications. To fully understand and exploit this potential however, the antioxidant activity and ACE-inhibitory potential of this protein need to be better understood and have not been previously reported. In this study, the Class II hydrophobin HFBII was produced by the(More)
Resveratrol (3,5,4′-trihydroxystilbene) (Fig. 1) was first isolated in 1940 as an ingredient of the roots of white hellebore (Veratrum grandiflorum O. Loes) and has since been found in about 70 plant species, including grapes, mulberries and peanuts.1 It can also be found in food products and beverages such as peanut butter, red wine and grape juice.2,3 It(More)
Citrus flavonoids are natural compounds with important health benefits. The study of their interaction with a transport protein, such as bovine β-lactoglobulin (BLG), at the atomic level could be a valuable factor to control their transport to biological sites. In the present study, molecular docking and molecular dynamics simulation methods were used to(More)
A racemic mixture of a new chiral Schiff base ligand (HL: R/S-(1-phenylethylimino)methylnaphtalen-2-ol) has been utilized to prepare Pd(II) complex. Crystallization technique has been employed to separate diastereomeric pairs of Pd(II) complex: (mesoPdL2) and (racPdL2) that in this paper are known as PdL2(1) and PdL2(2), respectively. The synthesized(More)
Plant flavonoids are well known as antioxidants against oxidative stress induced by exposure to external pollutants. Nicotine (NIC) is one of those agents which increases renal oxidative stress, an important factor in the pathogenesis of renal epithelial injury in smokers. Although several studies had been conducted on flavonoids and oxidative stress, the(More)
This study demonstrates the binding properties of bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC) and diacetylbisdemethoxycurcumin (DABC) as bioactive curcuminoids with bovine β-lactoglobulin (BLG) variant B using fluorescence and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy; molecular docking, and molecular dynamics simulation methods. The estimated binding constants for BLG-BDMC and(More)
The reaction of a racemic mixture of Schiff base tridentate ligand with vanadium(V) affords homochiral vanadium complex, (VO(R-L))2O and (VO(S-L))2O due to ligand "self-recognition" process. The formation of homochiral vanadium complex was confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and X-ray diffraction. The HSA- and DNA-binding of the resultant complex is assessed by(More)
Novel metal-based drug candidate including VOL2, NiL2, CuL2 and PdL2 have been synthesized from 2-hydroxy-1-allyliminomethyl-naphthalen ligand and have been characterized by means of elemental analysis (CHN), FT-IR and UV-vis spectroscopies. In addition, (1)H and (13)C NMR techniques were employed for characterization of the PdL2 complex. Single-crystal(More)
