Neuropathological evidence indicates that dopaminergic cell death in Parkinson׳s disease (PD) involves impairment of mitochondrial complex I, oxidative stress, microglial activation, and the formation of Lewy bodies. Epidemiological findings suggest that the consumption of berries rich in anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins may reduce PD risk. In this study,(More)
DNA sequence matching done on a large database that grows exponentially is a fundamental task in Bioinformatics. The exponential growth drives the need to increase computational power. One of the emerging means for accelerating bioinformatics applications is through cluster computing; however, many research activities are done against these clusters. With(More)
A 13-year-old, previously asymptomatic girl was admitted with features of tuberculous meningitis. She was found to be hypertensive and further investigations revealed an extra-adrenal paraganglioma. Tuberculous meningitis and paraganglioma could be chance associations. Paraganglioma is a very rare and potentially lethal cause of secondary hypertension. We(More)
Global incidence of type 2 diabetes has escalated over the past few decades, necessitating a continued search for natural sources of enzyme inhibitors to offset postprandial hyperglycemia. The objective of this study was to evaluate coastal Alaskan seaweed inhibition of α-glucosidase and α-amylase, two carbolytic enzymes involved in serum glucose(More)
Blackcurrant, blueberry, and muscadine grape juices were efficiently sorbed, concentrated, and stabilized into dry granular ingredient matrices which combined anti-inflammatory and antioxidant fruit polyphenols with sweet potato functional constituents (carotenoids, vitamins, polyphenols, fibers). Total phenolics were highest in blackcurrant-orange sweet(More)
BACKGROUND Nothing is reported on Amphilophium paniculatum (L.) Kunth. This study aimed at investigation of chemical constituents of the leaves of Amphilophium paniculatum, grown in Egypt, in addition to pharmacological evaluation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Isolation of a new compound, along with 5 known flavonoids. Pharmacological activities were carried out(More)
The purpose of the study was to develop an online recruitment software that would facilitate the fast and accurate selection of qualified applicants. The Modified Waterfall Model was utilized in the development of the software. The developed software was then evaluated by six groups of respondents to determine the effectiveness of the system in terms of(More)
