The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of enzymatic hydrolysis with digestive enzymes of camel whole casein and beta-casein (β-CN) on their antioxidant and Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE)-inhibitory properties. Peptides in each hydrolysate were fractionated with ultra-filtration membranes. The antioxidant activity was determined using a(More)
The compositions and structures of bovine and camel milk proteins are different, which define their functional and biological properties. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of enzymatic hydrolysis of camel and bovine whey proteins (WPs) on their antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. After enzymatic treatment, both the antioxidant and(More)
Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Acquired Immunodeficiency Disease (HIV/AIDS) are one of the most difficult challenges facing practicing surgeons worldwide. The challenge is more acute in sub-Saharan Africa as it currently has the highest prevalence of HIV infection in the world. Surgeons are at risk of occupationally acquired infection as a result of(More)
Ficin (EC 3.4.22.3), a cysteine endoproteolytic protease in fig trees' latex, has multiple isoforms. Until now, no data on autolysis of individual ficins (ficin isoforms) are available. Following purification, ficins' autolysis was determined by HPLC chromatogram changes and ultrafiltrations at different temperatures and storage times. These results showed(More)
In this study, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiglycation properties of methanolic extracts of 23 fennel samples were evaluated and their major compounds were determined using HPLC analysis. The anti-glycative activity of extracts was evaluated in the bovine serum albumin (BSA)/glucose system. The level of glycation, conformational alterations and protein(More)
Autoimmune thyroid diseases (ATD) are multifactorial conditions that result from genetic predisposition in combination with environmental risk factors. Helicobacter pylori infection as an environmental risk factor has been proposed to imitate the antigenic components of the thyroid cell membrane and may play a leading role in the onset of the autoimmune(More)
In the present work, chaperone-like activity of bovine β-casein (β-CN) against thermal denaturation and aggregation processes of bovine carbonic anhydrase (BCA) was investigated. We used different instrument and new developed methods for surveillance the structural alteration of BCA and its functional properties upon interaction with bovine β-CN. The(More)
Salinity is one of the most significant stresses that affect plant growth and agricultural production. Considerable efforts have therefore been made to investigate how plants respond to salt stress. To investigate the responses of Acanthophyllum to salinity stress, changes on lipid peroxidation, H2O2 content and the activity of antioxidant enzymes in calli(More)
