Amino Acid-based Surfactants: Enzymatic Synthesis, Properties and Potential Applications
Amino acid-based surfactants constitute a class of bio-based surfactants with excellent adsorption and aggregation properties, low potential toxicity and broad biological activity. In this review,Expand
Isolation and identification of antibiotic producing microorganisms from natural habitats in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.
In the course of screening for new antibiotic-producing microorganisms, seventy-nine isolates showing antimicrobial activity were isolated from soil samples from various habitats in the KwaZuluNatal midlands, South Africa. Expand
Chitin and Chitosan Preparation from Marine Sources. Structure, Properties and Applications
Several selected pharmaceutical and biomedical applications are presented, in which chitin and chitosan are recognized as new biomaterials taking advantage of their biocompatibility and biodegradability. Expand
Formulation and Evaluation of Herbal Gel Containing Leaf Extract of Tridax Procumbens
*Corresponding author E mail: J. Pharm. BioSci. 3(2015) 65-72 Abstract Herbal medicine has become an item of global importance both medicinal and economical. Although usage ofExpand
Cinnamon Oil and Chitosan Coating on Orthopaedic Implant Surface for Prevention of Staphylococcus Epidermidis Biofilm Formation.
This study showed that mixture of cinnamon oil and chitosan coated on the surface of stainless steel orthopaedic implant has an effect against S.Epidermidis biofilm formation with the minimum cinnamon oil concentration of 1%. Expand
Chitosan, the most important derivative of chitin is discussed, outlining the best techniques to characterize and it is many applications, and its functions may not have been fully comprehended. Expand
Is Chitosan a New Panacea? Areas of Application
The development of commercial applications for chitin and chitosan has progressed. The first known use of chitosan was a durable, flexible film used as a component in the varnish applied toExpand
Water-soluble β-cyclodextrin grafted with chitosan and its inclusion complex as a mucoadhesive eugenol carrier.
The inclusion complex between QCD-g-CS and EG tend to express higher antimicrobial activities against Candida albicans, StrePTococcus oralis and Streptococcus mutans, than the native Q CD- g-CS. Expand
Antimicrobial properties of chitosan and mode of action: a state of the art review.
The paper reviews the current trend of investigation on antimicrobial activities of chitosan and its mode of action and different physical states are comparatively discussed. Expand
Sequence specific stabilization of a linear analog of the antifungal lipopeptide iturin A2 by sodium during low energy electrospray ionization mass spectrometry conditions
It is proposed that specific interaction with sodium takes place with most of the peptide bond oxygens in these turns, and with the Gln sidechain, which leads to stabilized structures in which the peptides backbone is protected against low-energy fragmentation during ESI-MS. Expand
