Purification, Biochemical Characterization, and Bioactive Properties of a Lectin Purified from the Seeds of White Tepary Bean (Phaseolus Acutifolius Variety Latifolius)
The present work shows the characterization of Phaseolus acutifolius varietylatifolius, on which little research has been published, and provides detailed information onthe corresponding lectin. This protein was purified ...
Inflammation, Oxidative Stress, and Obesity
Obesity is a chronic disease of multifactorial origin and can be defined as an increase in the accumulation of body fat. Adipose tissue is not only a triglyceride storage organ, but studies have shown the role of white ...
Lead, Cadmium and Cobalt (Pb, Cd, and Co) Leaching of Glass-Clay Containers by pH Effect of Food
Recent studies have shown that handcrafted glass-clay containers are a health risk because they can be contaminated by heavy metals, which can be transferred to food, thus reaching the human body to potentially cause ...
Exposure to Sodium Fluoride Produces Signs of Apoptosis in Rat Leukocytes
Fluoride is naturally present in the earth's crust and can be found in rocks, coal, and clay; thus, it can be found in small quantities in water, air, plants, and animals. Therefore, humans are exposed to fluoride through ...
Detection of Cytotoxic Activity of Lectin on Human Colon Adenocarcinoma (Sw480) and Epithelial Cervical Carcinoma (C33-A)
Lectins comprise a heterogeneous class of proteins that recognize thecarbohydrate moieties of glycoconjugates with high specificity. Numerous studies haveOPEN ACCESSMolecules 2011, 162108shown that lectins are capable of ...
