Bovine serum albumin/chitosan-nanoparticle bio-complex; spectroscopic study and in vivo toxicological - Hypersensitivity evaluation

Bovine serum albumin/chitosan-nanoparticle bio-complex; spectroscopic study and in vivo toxicological – Hypersensitivity evaluation

This study, investigates the interplay of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with synthesized chitosan nanoparticles (CSNPs) utilizing regular-state fluorescence and UV-vis absorbance spectroscopy in addition to picosecond time-resolved fluorescence approach. The fluorescence quenching mechanism of BSA by CSNPs signifies the presence of each static and dynamic mechanism. The loading effectivity of BSA-CSNPs exhibited a lower by…

Improvement in serum amylase and glucose levels in diabetic rats on oral administration of bisdemethoxycurcumin from Curcuma longa and limonoids from Azadirachta indica

Improvement in serum amylase and glucose levels in diabetic rats on oral administration of bisdemethoxycurcumin from Curcuma longa and limonoids from Azadirachta indica

Curcuma longa and Azadirachta indica are historically used in Indian delicacies and Ayurvedic drugs as nutraceuticals towards diabetes. The crude C. longa isopropanol extract, bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC), the purified bioactive part from C. longa, and limonoids azadiradione, gedunin from A. indica, are in a position to inhibit in vitro the antidiabetic goal human pancreatic α-amylase independently.…
