The fatty acid composition was determined in the cultivated edible mushroom Agaricus bisporus (white), and the wild medicinal mushrooms, Turkey-tail (Trametes versicolor), Artist Conk (Ganoderma applanatum) and Tinder Polypore (Fomes fomentarius). The most prominent fatty acids present in all of the species studied were palmitic (C16: 0), stearic (...

Reduction in the concentration of pharmaceuticals present in wastewater has been attributed to sorption and biodegradation. However, the contribution of these processes has not been fully characterized. Previous studies have reported varying effects of solution pH and concentration on sorption behavior of pharmaceuticals in different absorbents inc...

The consumption of green leafy vegetables (GLVs) has been demonstrated to reduce the risks associated with cardiovascular and other diseases. However, no literature exists that examines the influence of traditional and novel GLVs on the liver fatty acid profile of an animal model genetically predisposed to developing hypertension. The aim of the pr...
Chapter
This chapter discusses the general structure and classification of the lipids with emphasis on those found in muscle tissue. In addition, degradation of lipids (oxidation) in muscle foods are presented since this directly affects meat quality. It also discusses the extraction and analysis of these lipid components. As not all types of lipids (e.g.,...
Article
This study evaluated the effectiveness of two commonly used transesterification methods for the preparation of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) for gas chromatographic analysis. A combination of base followed by acid catalysis [potassium hydroxide/sulfuric acid/methanol (KOH–H2SO4–MeOH)] was compared to an acid-only catalyst [methanolic–boron trifl...

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of castration on growth performance, carcass characteristics, and meat quality of goat kids. Fourteen Boer-cross buck and wether goat kids (n = 7; initial body weight (BW) and , for bucks and wethers, respectively) were grazed on annual Marshall ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) for 56 days. Body...

A move from conventional cages to either an enriched cage or a noncage system may affect the safety or quality, or both, of the eggs laid by hens raised in this new environment. The safety of the eggs may be altered either microbiologically through contamination of internal contents with Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis (Salmonella Enteritid...
Article
This paper discusses the development of a new biochemistry course, “Biochemistry of Cellular Regulation,” which is taught at the 300 level at Tuskegee University. The chemistry of cellular signaling and the subsequent cell regulation are discussed from a molecular viewpoint with emphasis on chemical structure, reactivity, and thermodynamics. Classr...
Article
IR spectra, thermodynamics and photochemistry of ethene, C2H4, physisorbed onto NaCl(100) cuboids of a sublimed polycrystalline film have been examined. The heat of adsorption of ethene onto the NaCl film ranges –10 ± 3 < ΔadsH < –17 ± 3 kJ mol–1 over a coverage range of 0.5 < Θ < 1.0. The vibrational spectrum of the adsorbed ethene resembles that...
Article
Polarized infrared spectra and isotherms of monolayer ethene, C2H4, at 70 and 77 K on NaCl(100) are reported. Epitaxial growth of bulk ethene adlayers at 55 K on the NaCl(100) is also explored. The isotherms show that the ethene monolayer forms in constant density islands. The heat of adsorption is -20 +/- 2 kJ/mol, while the pairwise interaction e...
Article
The infrared spectra and thermodynamic behavior of ethene on a film of NaCl(100) crystallites, and on a single crystal of NaCl(100) was investigated. The structure of a physisorbed ethene monolayer on the single crystal surface was determined using polarized $FTIR^{1}$. We expand these studies to explore the photochemistry of the ethene adlayer. Ph...
