Nutraceutical is referred to a functional food ingredient or a nutrient that possesses therapeutic properties and claim health benefits among people.
CLASSIFICATION BASED ON CHEMICAL NATURE
Nutraceuticals can be divided as follows:
• Isoprenoid derivatives • Phenolic substances • Fatty acids and structural lipids •…
3. Nanomedicine in the treatment of cardiovascular disease
3.1 Intervention in cardiovascular disease with liposome
Delivery of therapeutics to targeted tissues is possible through the design and construction of nanoscale particles while reduced toxicity as well as higher efficiency is obtainable [67,68]. Liposomes have huge skillfulness with regard to physicochemical characteristics, permitting acclimatization of the tiny particle to dovetail to the exact biological application . Building…
Livestock production and climate change affect and get influenced by each other. The most important effects of climate change on the environment and livestock include rise in temperature, elevation in sea level, alteration in microbial eco-system and several others effects, known or unknown which might affect the livestock positively or negatively. There have been various predictions about the quantum of sea level rise with varying degree of confidence because many of the natural phenomena have…
Society, as a unit, has difficulty in knowing and understanding the rather abstract scientific subjects, and rely on those who take the challenge in transforming it into a popular manner. The sophisticated science reports use a variety of vocabulary unknown to the majority of the populations. Scientific terms and other writing structures specialized in the description of scientific reports make it difficult to understand for beginning scholars who do not have a sufficient amount of background…
Below I am discussing, at length why I believe I should receive the Research Plus Award, addressing each point of the Researcher Excellence Framework, giving evidence how the past two and a half years have contributed to my personal and my career development.
1. Knowledge and Intellectual abilities
a. Knowledge base
Throughout my PhD I have been able to attend a number of courses organised by the QUB postgraduate centre, which allowed me to further my knowledge and gain valuable skills within my…
The Human Genome Project was a research program that began in 1990 and took 13 years to complete (1). The project was originally funded by the US Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, many other countries participated, including the UK, Canada, Japan, France, and Germany (1). The overall aim of the Human Genome Project was to completely understand and map out every human gene, the genome (2). The other goals of the program were to determine the…
Since acetic acid is considered a weak acid (strong within the scale of weak acids), there is a range at which the acetic acid and acetate will form a stable buffer.
Using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation for buffers, it’s possible to calculate the pH based on the ratio of acid to conjugate base, or calculate the ratio given the pH and pKa value.
Finding charge on a protonated amine:
The pKa value given for the amino group on any amino acid specifically refers to the equilibrium between the…

• The enzyme used in this experiment is pancreatic lipase. The substrate for pancreatic lipase is lipids or triglycerides. Hydrolysis of triglycerides occurs in the duodenum and the PH rages are from 7.1 to 8.2.
• Phenol red was used as a PH indicator of the samples.…
Discuss the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of mass spectrometry for the analysis of both small molecules and proteins.
Mass spectrometers. They are a powerful tool used to evaluate analytes such as single atoms, molecules, whole proteins, or the simple peptide chains that make them up. Using the mass to charge ratio (m/z) of these analytes, we can differentiate one or many entities (such as one particular peptide fragment, or a panel of them) from everything else in…
The cancer is sometimes genetic, but mostly it is caused by the environment. Environmental factor in the development of cancers can be chemical, physical or biological. Chemical exposure to environmental carcinogens chemicals or substances that can lead to the development of cancer. It can occur in the workplace and in the home, as well as medical treatments, and lifestyle choices. Pollution from coal-fired power plants, auto mobile exhaust, and other sources. Burning coal is also a leading…
