Enzymatic conversion of sterigmatocystin to aflatoxin B1.
The age of Aspergillus parasiticus (1-11-105Wh1) mycelium was found to have an influence on the level of enzymes, responsible for the conversion of sterigmatocystin to aflatoxin B and O-methylsterigmatocystin, present. ...
Molecular characterisation of metacaspase 5 and the production of oligopeptidase b-specific single chain variable fragment antibodies for potential animal African trypanosomosis chemotherapies and diagnostics.
African trypanosomosis (AT) is a major obstacle in the establishment of agriculture and economic sustainability in Africa. Animal AT is responsible for large numbers of livestock succumbing to the tsetse transmitted ...
Antidiabetic and toxicological properties of some African medicinal plants used in the treatment of diabetes and its complications.
This study investigated the antioxidant, antidiabetic and toxicity properties of antidiabetic medicinal plants comprising of Vernonia amygdalina, Cola nitida, Raffia palm (Raphia hookeri) wine, Phaseolus lunatus, Dacryodes ...
Evaluation of the anti-diabetic potentials of some African medicinal plants: a multimode study.
The present study investigated the effects of five African medicinal plants (Alstonia boonei, Acalypha wilkesiana, Boerhaavia diffusa, Bridelia ferruginea, and Crassocephalum rubens) for their antioxidative and antidiabetic ...
An investigation into the analytical, cytotoxicity and immunotoxicity of mycotoxins found in commercially available pelleted pet foods in Durban, South Africa.
Introduction: Dry pelleted dog food in the South African market is available via supermarket, pet stores (standard brands - SB) and veterinary channels (premium brands-PB). Similarly, cat food were viewed in two market ...
Anti-c-myc cholesterol-based lipoplexes: development, characterisation and evaluation as Onconanotherapeutic agents in vitro.
Strategies aimed at inhibiting the expression of the c-myc oncogene could provide the basis for alternative cancer treatment. In this regard, silencing c-myc expression using small interfering RNA (siRNA) is an attractive ...
Functionalised gold nanoparticle delivery for c-MYC siRNA in cancer gene therapy.
Abstract available in PDF file.
The extracellular matrix regulates myoblast migration during wound healing.
Mammalian skeletal muscle can regenerate after injury and this response is primarily mediated by the satellite cell, a muscle stem cell. Following injury, satellite cells are activated to myoblasts, undergo rapid ...
Extracellular matrix factors influence myoblast activation, differentiation and fusion.
Satellite cells are muscle stem cells that reside in a niche between the basal lamina and sarcolemma of mature muscle fibers. Upon muscle injury, these cells are activated to myoblasts that subsequently proliferate, ...
