Water and ethanol extract exhibited 99.1% and 77.5% inhibition of peroxidation in linolinic system at 100µg quantity. All assays for antioxidant are effective in water and ethanol. The property of antioxidant is increasing when concentration and amount of sample increased. Finally this study concluded that the fennel seed show s the excellent in vitro antioxidant property though it is best for the biological system, emulsion and health implication or dry …show more content…
The essential oil have been characterized by GC-MS. Major compounds present in the oil was t-anethole, estragole, fenchone and limonene. This study showed the chemical profile of the fruits of fennel is affected by temperature and rainfall. The study of antiobesity was evolved when the polyherbal formulation of Foeniculum vulgare, Glycerrhiza glabra, Achyranthus aspera, vigna angularis. The study was applied on the Wister rat and all the biochemical parameters total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglyceride, free fatty acid were estimated. The parameters showed significant decrease in body weight and HDL cholesterol. Finally polyherbal formulation was a high fat diet diseases control

    The examination of synergistic and decreasing effects of extracts on antibiotic is done under inhibitory concentrations (sub-MIC). Concentration of the extracts under inhibitory state to the Mueller-Hinton agar is added with a ratio of 1 to 2 (1 unit extract and 2 unit Mueller-Hinton Agar medium) were used as plate test. Bacterial suspension, with a concentration of 0.5 McFarland (108×1.5 CFU/ml), is cultured on Mueller-Hinton Agar medium containing inhibitory concentrations of the extract in a grass-like state. Antibiotic discs was placed on the surface of the medium. The disc containing solvent is determined as negative control and a disc with extract and an inhibitory concentration (sub-Mic) was recorded as positive control.…

    The redox properties of phenolics and flavonoids chelate the metals and quenching the singlet oxygen. The total phenolic concentration showed close correlation with increased antioxidant activity, because, plant phenolics present in fruit and vegetables have received considerable attention for potential antioxidant properties (Lopez-Velez et al., 2003). There is a linear correlation between phenolic content and antioxidant activity (Gheldof and Engeseth, 2002). High concentration of total phenolics present in both plant extracts showed their total antioxidant potentiality through the in vitro antioxidant assays. However, CBE showed a relatively higher scavenging property than CQE.…

It is well-known to make cells resistant to viral infection, and its aroma is one that has statistically significant antidepressant properties. It is thought to potentate the effects of other oils, and because of its very high potency, can be used in very small percentages in relation to other oils. Tea Tree is the most widely studied of the antibacterial and antiviral oils, and the only essential oil thus far shown to specifically eradicate H1N1 influenza. Bay Laurel -- or "laurus nobilis" has been shown to have direct action against against a highly infectious virus causing severe respiratory ailments.…

    The pH optima observed with crude enzyme towards casein and hemoglobin as substrates was 9.0.This is comparable to other proteases, which are generally more active in the alkaline pH range [49,50].This observation suggests the possibility of existence of one component with proteolytic activity. The temperature for optimum activity was as high as 60°C and is comparable to other plant proteases. Stability studies showed that proteases may be stored in reversibly inhibited state. Resistance towards heat denaturation of the enzyme is remarkable and resembles other plant proteases [51, 52 and 53]. Preliminary studies on the protease activity of the crude latex revealed that the enzyme resemble other plant proteases in their a) requirement of a reducing agent for maximal activity; b) Inhibition by several conventional agents such as PCMB; and c) presence of an active SH group.…

    In particular, many of the sources are studies done by scientists who have observed the effects of antiseptics on bacteria such as E.coli. Websites that focus on microbiology help explain the presence of E.coli in the real world and the uses of E.coli as a popular laboratory bacterium. I also plan on conducting a lab experiment to support or disprove my hypothesis. I will be testing out four different antiseptics on E.coli bacteria while using turbidity and a spectrophotometer to measure bacterial growth. Small test tubes, called cuvettes, will be filled with non-pathogenic E.coli bacteria and a nutrient broth.…

    coli to be cheaper and faster than the usage of other microorganisms. Their results are used to start the investigation for causative pathogens of waterborne and to ensure that drinking water is completely safe to consumption. Fortunately, positive results were attained indicating fecal contamination and possible presence of other microorganism. Finally, the cause of the success in this experiment is: • The procedures were correctly followed, resulting in positive-coliform in both tests. MNP had 460 CFU/ml of E. coli, and MF 450 CFU/ml of E. coli.…

    In the present study the antibacterial activity of sericin from sporlac, treated silkworm against five human bacterial pathogens such as E. coli, P.aeruginosa, S. aureus, S. pyogenes and K. pneumonia was investigated by disc diffusion method. Pandiarajan et al. (2011) has investigated the antibacterial activity of cocoon shell extract and proved that the cocoon shell extract inhibited the growth of micro organisms such as E.coli, B. cereus, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus and K. pneumoniae. Jassim and Al-Saree (2010) isolated and identified some pathogenic bacteria like S.aureus, P.aeruginosa, E.coli and tested the antimicrobial activity of sericin against these pathogens and concluded that the protein sericin has good antimicrobial properties. The antibacterial activity of erisericin in the representative gram negative (E.coli) and gram positive (S.aureus) bacteria models were observed by Senakoon et al.…

    Violet red bile agar is a selective medium used to identify lactose-fermenting coliforms. This medium is typically used to test dairy products and water. The medium contains lactose which acts as a carbohydrate source, bile salts and crystal violet that act as an inhibitory agent towards gram-positive microorganisms and neutral red is added to serve as a pH indicator, microorganisms lower the pH which results in the colonies turning red. Some of the organisms that grow on this medium are: Escherichia coli ,Enterobacter aerogenes and Enterococcus.Lactose-fermenting organisms appear as pink or red colonies , E.coli appear pink or red, E.aerogenes appear pink in colour ,Enterococcus appear rose in colour and the colour are pin point in size…
