This study was undertaken to verify the effect of a daily intake of a new fermented soy milk produced with Enterococcus faecium and Lactobacillus jugurti on the serum lipid levels in normocholesterolemic middle-aged men. The study was randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled and was performed for a period of 6 weeks. Forty-four normocholesterolemic(More)
Erythrocytes undergo deformations when they transport O2 and CO2 across the membrane, yet the 3D nanomechanics of the skeletal network remains poorly understood. Expanding from our previous single isolated unit, we now simulate networks consisting of 1–10 concentric rings of repeating units in equibiaxial deformation. The networks are organized with (1) a(More)
The effect of several nutritional and environmental parameters on Penicillium purpurogenum growth and sacharogenic amylase production was analyzed. High enzyme levels (68.2 U mg(-1)) were obtained with Khanna medium at initial pH 6.0, incubated at 30°C for 144 hours. The optimum pH and temperature activities were 5.0 and 65°C, respectively. The enzyme(More)
