Characterization of lactic acid bacteria isolated from dromedary raw milk in Syria

Article in Press

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are considered a micro flora of Syrian camel milk. A total of 235 isolates of LAB were obtained from 63 camel milk samples, which have been collected from producing areas of different regions of Syria during 2009 and 2012. The isolates were cocci and rods, gram-positive and catalase-negative. 132 isolates were identified as cocci including 76 isolates belonging to Enterococcus (45 were...

In silico analysis of antimicrobial eupalitin isolated from Ageratina adenophora using docking method

Article in Press

The present study evaluated the efficacy of eupalitin compounds against the target protein, dihydrofolate reductase of bacterial and fungal pathogens using in silico approach. Structure based docking studies was performed using Schrodinger (Version: 1.8) tool to retrieve potential candidates with high affinities binding against eupalitin models with several targeted proteins repositories. The specific targets were selected...

Potential application of nutrigenomics in livestock: Lesson from developed countries

Article in Press

Livestock performance is affected by genotype and environment. Nutrition is one of the greatest environmental determinants. Genes function according to the metabolic signals received by the nucleus from hormones and nutrients. Currently, nutrigenomics, which encompasses the three crucial omics stages (transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics), is emerging in the area of livestock to develop feeds that can be...
