Biochemical studies on trypanosomal prolyl oligopeptidase family pathogenic factors.
African Animal trypanosomosis, also known as Nagana, is a parasitic disease which affects many mammalian species, mainly livestock such as cattle, sheep and goats. The disease also affects humans (Human African Trypanosomosis) ...
Yeast encapsulation for bioethanol production.
The bioethanol production industry is faced with hurdles such as uncovering cheap and abundantly available fermentation substrates, as well as yeast strains possessing high ethanol tolerance properties. Cane molasses is a ...
A study of the African horse sickness virus using High Resolution Melt, multivariate and phylogenetic analyses for a potential serotyping assay.
African horse sickness (AHS) is a viral disease that afflicts all equine species and has a 90% mortality rate in unvaccinated horses. The disease has a devastating effect on the national herd of South Africa each year ...
Characterization of antimicrobial resistance genes of Aeromonas spp. isolated from fish and investigation of phytochemical treatment efficacy against resistant isolates.

Gene transfer by receptor-mediated endocytosis : stable expression of NEO following insulin-directed entry into HepG2 cells.
Evidence is presented for DNA delivery to cultured HepG2 hepatoma cells via the endocytotic pathway, under the direction of insulin, in a soluble system of transfection leading to stable gene expression. Serum albumin ...
Over-expression of FLO11 encoded mannoprotein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Investigation of anti-diabetic properties of Psidium guajava leaf in streptozocin induced diabetic rats.
Diabetes mellitus results in chronic hyperglycaemia, leading to defects in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Diabetes mellitus is also linked with elevated plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which may ...
Effects of catharanthus roseus and centella asiatica leaf extracts on enzymes of glutamine catabolism in human colon carcinoma (CACO-2) cell line and in enterocytes from male sprague-dawley rats.
Phosphate-dependent glutaminase (PDG) is a key enzyme in several physiological processes and hence has become a target of anti-cancer drug development because of the role of glutamine in providing energy for rapidly dividing ...
Purification and characterization of catechol -1,2-dioxygenase from Acinetobacter sp. strain Y64 and Escherichia.coli transformants.
