The multifunctional nature of antioxidant peptides makes them more attractive candidates as dietary ingredients in health maintenance. Therefore, food protein-derived antioxidant peptides are continuously investigated. This study investigated the in vitro antioxidant properties of hydrolysate and ultrafiltered peptide fractions of Pachymelania auri...
Article
Full-text available
Context: Multifunctional food protein-derived peptides attract a great deal of research interest due to their health-promoting benefits. Particularly, peptides that have both antihypertensive and antioxidant properties are desired, since both effects can be synergistic in prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Aim: The aim of this study was to i...

Purpose and methods: In this study, the analgesic activity of the crude alcohol (acetone-methanol) and aqueous (in PBS, pH 7.2) extracts of the marine molluscs, Pachymelania aurita and Tympanotonus fuscatus, has been evaluated using the formalin test (for chronic antinociceptive) and the tail-flick (acute antinociceptive) pain models in male swiss...
Article
Full-text available
Low molecular weight peptides are among the most active bioactive components that have been isolated from marine molluscs. Currently, peptides isolated from molluscs as well as their synthetic structural analogues are in clinical trials as anticancer compounds and have been approved for use in pain management. These Bioactive peptides have also bee...

Marine organisms make up approximately half of the total global biodiversity, with the Mollusca containing the second largest number of species, including snails and bivalves. The marine environment is highly competitive, hostile and aggressive, which has led to the production of specific and potent bioactive compounds by the mollusca and their ass...

This study aimed to investigate the antimitotic and antiproliferation activities of crude acetone-methanol and aqueous extracts of two marine molluscs commonly found in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria; T.fuscatus and P.aurita, against human cancerous cell lines (DU145, Hep-2, and HCC1395) cell lines in vitro. The antimitotic activity of the extra...

Aims: This study was aimed at evaluating the antimicrobial potential of the alcohol and aqueous extracts as well as peptide fractions of T. fuscatus and P. aurita. Place and Duration of Study: Methodology: The antimicrobial activity of the whole body aqueous and acetone-methanol extracts of T.fuscatus Var Radula and P.aurita, collected from the Nig...

A lectin (LEL) was isolated from the fresh fruiting bodies of the shiitake mushroom Lentinula edodes by a combination of gel filtration chromatography on Sephadex G-150 and affinity chromatography on an N-acetyl-Dgalactosamine-Sepharose 4B column. Its molecular mass, as determined by gel filtration, was estimated to be 71, 000 Daltons and its struc...

Question
They say they are the number 1 academia-industry partnering network for Scientific Innovations in all fields of Life Sciences. Has anyone worked or used the services of Inospin (formerly known as Biowebspin) before? Are they legit pls?
Question
So I want to carry out antiinflamatory studies using cell lines in which I treat the cells with LPS and then check for IL-1 beta, NO, PGE2 etc. My question is do I need to use specific cell lines for this? I have seen people use RAW 264.7, HL-60 and THL-1 cells but I do not have these cell lines at the moment. Can I use just any other cancerous and non cancerous mammalian cells?
Question
I Have these alcohol extracts that I cannot evaporate due to low yield hence the extract is still in liquid form in the alcohol. Pls does anyone know a way I can make up different concentrations from this extract to use in an acute toxicity study involving mice?
Question
I am currently working on isolating bioactive low molecular weight peptides. I am very new to using MALDI Tof. Please I would like to know what I can apply MALDI Tof to in studying my peptides aside from using it to determine molecular weight?
Question
Hi
I am looking into isolating bioactive peptides from a snail species that has not been worked on so we cant tell what to expect. My question is what is a basic way to detect the presence of cyclic peptides in a methanolic extract and other fractions after  solvent partitioning? Thanks
