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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Albumin is a multifunctional non-glycosylated, negatively charged plasma protein, with extraordinary ligand-binding and transport properties, antioxidant functions, and enzymatic activities. Physiologically, albumin transports free fatty acids in plasma and contributes in maintaining colloid osmotic pressure. Recent progresses in using albumin as a(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are the predominant intermediates of glycation process, and mediate oxidative stress and complications of diabetes. Potassium sorbate (PS) as a widespread preservative is an oxidative agent and used in different dairy and drug products, which can readily enter biological matrices. Here we studied the PS interference(More)
Regular consumption of natural antioxidants reduces the risk of developing diseases. Aloin is one of the main active phenolic components of Aloe vera. The main disadvantage of aloin is its concentration limit of use that causes cell damage. One of the aims of this study was to investigate the antioxidant activity of aloin in the presence and absence of(More)
OJECTIVE To evaluate the pattern of civilian vascular injuries, demonstrate any change in pattern and document management challenges in a resource challenged environment. DESIGN A retrospective study. SETTING The division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery of University College Hospital a major referral centre, not only for south-west Nigeria but(More)
