    supernatant (II in Table 1) was adjusted to pH 5.0 by the addition of 1N acetic acid and allowed to stand overnight. The precipitate was removed by centrifugation and the supernatant (III in Table 1) was subjected to ammonium sulphate fractionation between 0.25 and 0.9 saturation. The ammonium sulphate precipitate was suspended in 0.0025M Mc llvain buffer (pH 5.5) containing 2.5 × 10-3 M sodium ascorbate and dialyzed against the same buffer at 40C for 20 hrs. The dialysate (IV in Table 1) was centrifuged

  • Essay On The Antibacterial Effects Of Microorganisms

    The main for the purpose of this study was to find out about the tolerance of Listeria monocytogenes towards quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC). The antibacterial effects of disinfectants are crucial for the control of Listeria monocytogenes in food processing environments. Tolerance of L. monocytogenes to sub lethal levels of disinfectants based on QAC is conferred by the resistant determinants qacH and bcrABC. The QAC based disinfectants which are in common use in many food industries are found

  • Different Types of Transport Mechanisms Occuring in AEMs

    843 Words  | 3 Pages

    Main role of an Anion ion membrane is to conduct hydroxyl ions at very high rates from the cathode to the anode where reduction and oxidation of O2 and H2 occur. The AEM and its integration with the electrodes form the heart of the alkaline fuel cell. If the transport through the AEM is not sufficiently high and highly selective, the corresponding fuel cell will not find any practical application. Different types of transport mechanisms occurring in AEMs, is taken from the large amount of literature

  • Synthetic Vs. Natural Polymers

    Synthetic vs Natural Polymers in Conditioning Shampoos Introduction and Thesis Cosmetics have been used for thousands of years to enhance the visual appearance of people, either through ritualistic or aesthetic motivations. With the turn of the 20th Century, the growing trend of the film industry caused an uprising in the commercialism of cosmetic products. This coincided with the increasing development in the chemistry industry, to accommodate the multi-billion dollar industry which is present today

  • Capb Research Paper

    the continuation of the work CAPB is used. Chemical formula C19H38N2O3 and IUPAC name {[3-(Dodecanoylamino) propyl](dimethyl)ammonio}acetate is showen in fig 5. Molecular structure of CAPB : Fig 5 (CAPB) is a mixture of closely related organic compounds derived from coconut oil and dimethyl amino propyl amine.[ 63] CAPB is available as a viscous pale yellow solution and it is used as a surfactant in personal care products. The name reflects that the major part of the molecule, the lauric acid group

  • Cyytotoxicity Of Nannodisc

    931 Words  | 4 Pages

    Cytotoxicity of nanodisc trapped/remodeled A1-40 intermediates The structural analysis of nanodisc bound A1-40 ¬suggests the formation of intermediate conformation with typical sheet structures driven by the PMA. We next characterized the toxicity of these A1-40 intermediates in human neuroblastoma (SH-SY5Y) cells. Results showed substantial cytotoxic behavior of PMA in solution with a cell viability loss of ≈ 40 % at 2.5 M. The A1-40 monomer and fibers (2.5 M) incubated with equimolar PMA

  • Case Study On Toilet Seat Dermatitis

    820 Words  | 4 Pages

    A CASE REPORT OF TOILET SEAT DERMATITIS ABSTRACT: Toilet seat dermatitis is a contact dermatitis involving the posterior thighs and the gluteal region resulting from contact with toilet seats. It was commonly seen with wooden toilet seats. It is more frequently seen on usage of public toilets where harsher cleansers are used. Here we describe a case of pruritic symmentric erythematous eruption over the posterior thighs and the lower gluteal area in a 5 year old atopic boy. Key words: Toilet seat

  • Biochemistry of Proteins. Isolation of Ovalbumin: Characterisation of Thiol Groups and Separation by Gel Filtration

    1063 Words  | 5 Pages

    Introduction Methionine and cysteine are both sulphur containing amino acids. Most proteins will contain one, or both of them at some point in the polypeptide chain. As such, many amino acids contain sulphur in some form, which is required in small amounts in the mammalian diet. Methionine has a thioether side chain, and cysteine's contains a thiol group. These side chains exist as free thiols inside the cell, and are oxidised causing them to pair up and form disulphide bonds in an extracellular

    uniformly. The absorbance levels off at 0.3nm. The absorbance with no SDS remains at a constant level of 0.1nm for the entire experiment. The absorbance of the control solution is also constant throughout the experiment. This shows the absorbance of the compounds in the solution without the ovalbumin, by taking this figure away from the other recordings, it is possible to discover the absorbance for ovalbumin alone. The absorbance with SDS shows a rapid increase, before the graph begins to increase more
