The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is high in Africa. However, local surveys are still needed to be conducted for filling up the gap existing in understanding the epidemiological situation of the infection within the continent. This study aimed to assess the seroprevalence of H. pylori and its determinant factors in Bukavu, the capital city of Southern Kivu Province in Eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). A cross-sectional communit...

Wnt5a Role in Cisplatin Effect and Selectivity Augmentation in Cancer Therapy

Waleed O. Atta, Ahmed Z. Abdel Azeiz
Wnt5a is a representative protein ligand that activates a beta catenin independent pathway in Wnt signaling in cancer progression and spread in the palmitoylated form. So that its synthesis is augmented through promotion of its gene transcription in the malignant cells. Cisplatin is an important chemotherapeutic drug used in treatment of different types of advanced cancer. However, its usage is limited due to severe dose-limiting side effects, due to the lack of targeting therapy of cisplatin. O...

Probing of Interaction between Alogliptin Benzoate and Human Serum Albumin Using Multi-Spectral Methods and Molecule Docking Technique

Nan Zhang, Jianbo Chen, Zhuowei Han
The interaction of alogliptin benzoate with human serum albumin had been characterized under physiological conditions using multi-spectral methods and molecular docking technique. The work presented in this paper focused on the interaction mechanism, the conformational changes of HSA and the binding sites of alogliptin benzoate with human serum albumin. The binding distance, binding constants, the number of binding sites and the binding forces had been investigated through fluorescence and spect...

Selection and Analysis of Protein Circular Dichroism Spectra Using an Expansion of Spectral Factors

David A. Haner
Techniques are presented to develop spectroscopic factors directly from circular dichroism spectra of proteins using singular value decomposition on a small database. Four spectra of maximum spectral variability are chosen to characterize the database. These selected protein spectra are then factored by singular values into component spectra, which are collected as comparative vector characteristics used as factor fractions. The necessary standardization for comparison is achieved using unit nor...

Response Surface Methodology to Optimize Degradation on Phenol by Pseudomonas stutzeri ZH-1

Yong Yan, Qingping Hu
In order to obtain the optimal conditions for the degradation of phenol by Pseudomonas stutzeri ZH-1, based on the single factor experiment, the Box Behnken design test of Response Surface Method was used. Four variables of glucose concentration (0.4, 0.6, 0.8 g/L), inoculation concentration (3%, 5%, 7%), pH (6, 7, 8) and temperature (35°C, 37.5°C, 40°C) were used to identify the significant effects and interactions in the batch studies. A second order polynomial regression mo...

Evaluation of the Protective Effect of Citrullus lanatus (Water Melon) Fruit-Parts Extracts on the Liver of Acetaminophen-Intoxicated Albino Rats

M. O. Enemali, M. E. Asogwa, C. C. Nweze, G. S. Haruna, A. U. Ijeomah
There is always the need to study the bioactive components present in the various parts of edible fruits. This will go a long way to providing an idea of its potential biological benefits when consumed. The current study evaluated the protective effect of C. lanatus fruit’s endocarp/exocarp, mesocarp and seed extracts on the liver of albino rats. The qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analysis was also done following standard methods. The albino rats were divided into nine groups of five...

Study on Preparation of Bio-Oil from Wheat Straw by Hydrothermal Liquefaction

Dongyu Guo, Jun Wang
Wheat straw is an ideal green renewable resource, which is widely used as fertilizers, feedstuffs, edible funguses, industrial raw materials and fuels. Hydrothermal liquefaction of biomass that works under normal or slightly pressurized conditions results in higher oil quality. We summarize the technical principles of hydrothermal liquefaction, analyze the difficulties and problems in the utilization of various technologies, and put forward the development trend of promoting the application of b...
