Soybean Seed in Kunun Zaki Beverage Production
Gaffa T.,I.A. Jideani,I. Nkama
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2002,
Abstract: The role of soybean seed in kunun zaki production was investigated. The nutrient and sensory qualities of kunun zaki produced with varying concentrations of soybean were evaluated as well as that from other saccharifying agents. Increase in soybean seed concentration was found to increase crude protein and fat contents of the beverage from 3.19 8.86 % and 0.37 0.75 % respectively. The soybean product treated with warm water was preferred to that in which the seeds were slightly roasted. In all cases, kunun zaki produced with 4% (w/w) soybean seed was the most preferred to other concentrations. The product with soybean concentration above 4% was objectionable to consumers. Kunun zaki produced with incorporation of soybean was acceptable to the consumers just as that from the other saccharifying agents. The use of soybean seed in kunun zaki production as a saccharifying and enrichment agent is encouraged.
Physicochemical and Microbial Qualities of Dambu Produced from Different Cereal Grains
H.O. Agu,A.N. Anosike,I.A. Jideani
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2008,
Abstract: Dambu, a steamed granulated dumpling product generally made from millet, was produced from maize, millet, sorghum and acha (Digitaria exilis). The decorticated clean cereal grains were pulverized into coarse particles mixed with spices and water and steamed. Physicochemical analysis, sensory quality and the microbial quality of the Dambu were all carried out. Percentage proximate composition of the products ranged in values with moisture content 29-33, ash 2.0-3.0, protein 7.3-11.7, fat 5.4-8.8 and carbohydrate 46.8-53.3. During storage, pH decrease (7.6 to 5.1) was observed, while titratable acidity increased (1.8 to 8.1) for all the products. The bacteria load (cfu/g) of the four Dambu products increased with time under the following storage conditions: refrigeration (3.1×105 to 1.7×106), cupboard (1.4×3106 to 8.5×106) and laboratory shelf (1.2×106 to 1.2×108). The fungal count (cfu/g) also increased with time under the storage conditions: refrigeration (2.3×105 to 1.2×106), cupboard (1.5×106 to 6.5×106) and laboratory shelf (2.1×106 to 9.5×106). In terms of sensory quality there was no significance difference (p>0.05) in the mean scores for all the assessed parameter except the texture of the products.
Geochemical Exploration for Gold and the Association of As-Cu-Pb-Sn-Zn-Li in the Upper Proterozoic Granitoids of the Wadi Rumman Area, Southwest Jordan  [PDF]
I.A.A. Bany Yaseen
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2015.610089
Abstract: The geochemical studies were conducted in an area covering about 15 km2of the south side of the Wadi Rumman area, SW Jordan. The study area included a part of a basement of complex exposed rocks in southwestern Jordan. The complexes comprised igneous and metamorphic suites, mostly from the late Proterozoic age. A systematic geochemical sampling was conducted using rock and heavy mineral-panned concentrate of geochemical samples. Fifty rock samples were collected from the granitic rocks, simple pegmatite dyke, quartz veins and alteration zone, which covered the area. Next, 45 heavy mineral-panned concentrate samples were collected from the alluvium in the stream sediment within the catchment area, and the dray was sieved to less than 1 mm grain size. The geochemical samples were analyzed for their trace elements and gold by using Ione Conductive Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES) and the Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) at Natural Resources Authority (NRA) Labs. The results of the geochemical analysis indicated the presence of gold and heavy minerals in the study area, a result considered abnormal in the rock samples. A strong positive correlation was recorded of Au with As, Cu and W (r =0.82, 0.7 and 1.0), as with Mo (r = 0.83), Cu with Pb (r = 0.83), Sn with Mo (r = 0.73), Mo with W (r = 0.97), Zn with W (r = 0.71), and Li with Bi (r = 0.7). These correlations revealed gold associated within the hydrothermal alteration, quartz veins and pegmatite dyke. Abnormal metals such as As and Bi were good path-finders to find Au. The HM samples showed low positive linear correlations among the concentrations of Au with As, Zn and Li, and negative linear correlations of Au with Pb, Sn, Bi and W. The combination of both rock and heavy mineral concentrate samples shows four geochemical anomalous areas of gold and heavy minerals. The geochemical signatures of Au and As in the Wadi Rumman appear to be in the hydrothermal alteration, quartz veins and pegmatite dyke, respectively. Heavy mineral concentration sampling delineated the Au geochemical anomaly in area 1 specificities with the rock geochemical anomaly of area 1.

Cytokines in innate and acquired immunity to Trypanosoma cruzi infection
Abrahamsohn, I.A.;
Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research , 1998, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-879X1998000100015
Abstract: resistance to trypanosoma cruzi infections is critically dependent on cytokine-mediated activation of cell-mediated immune effector mechanisms. this review focuses on the role of il-10, tnf-a, ifn-g and il-12 in controlling t. cruzi replication by the innate and specific immune systems of the vertebrate host. a study performed on mice with disrupted recombinase-activating genes (rag/ko), which lack t and b lymphocytes, revealed the importance of il-12, ifn-g and tnf-a in the resistance against t. cruzi mediated by the innate immune system. in addition, data from experiments using il-10 ko, rag/ko and double rag/il-10 ko mice indicating an in vivo regulatory role of il-10 in innate and t. cruzi-specific immunity are discussed
Detection of Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis Virus Gag-Gene by RT-PCR from Experimentally Infected Goat Brain Cells
I.A. Adebayo
Research Journal of Biological Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Different brain cell types obtained from goat cerebrum explant cultures were prepared from newborn goat kids and infected by direct Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE) virus application. Predominantly, cells of the monocyte-macrophage lineage were specifically infected by the virus as proviral DNA was detected in infected cultures by amplification of a 414 base-pair (bp) fragment of the viral gag-gene by Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) technique. The present study revealed that microglia are the target brain cells infected by the CAE virus. This finding will undoubtedly help in devising some immuno-prophylactic measures to be adopted in the management of neurological dysfunctions resulting from retroviral infections of man (HIV) and animals.

I.A. Adetunde
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study is concerned with dynamical behavior of Euler Bernoulli beam traversed by uniform partially distributed moving masses. The governing partial differential equation was systematically analyzed and the analytical numerical solution for classical boundary condition obtained. The deflection of the Euler- Bernoulli beam is calculated under various specified conditions and the results displayed graphically. It is found that moving force solution is not an upper bound for an accurate solution of the moving mass problem.

The Mathematical Models of the Dynamical Behaviour of Tuberculosis Disease in the Upper East Region of the Northern Part of Ghana: A Case Study of Bawku
I.A. Adetunde
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study considers a Mathematical model of the dynamical behaviour of Tuberculosis disease in the Upper East region of the Northern part of Ghana. The equilibrium points of the model system are found and their stability is investigated. The model exhibits two equilibria namely, the disease-free and the endemic equilibrium. Using stability theory and computer simulation, it is observed that population determine the infection rate of tuberculosis hence the higher the population density, the greater the risk of instability of the disease free equilibrium.
