Nutritional and therapeutic properties of camel and human milks

  Camel and human milk samples (twenty individuals’ samples each) were analysed for fat, total protein (casein, whey protein), lactose, minerals as well as vitamins; B1, B2, niacin and C. Meanwhile, amino and fatty acid compositions and, antimicrobial factors namely; lysozyme (LZ), lactoferrin (LF) and total immunoglobulins (Igs) were determined. Results indicated that camel milk contained higher fat,...

Corticosteroid binding globulin and glucocorticoid receptor genotypes influence body composition in a male population

  Glucocorticoid Receptor (GR) polymorphisms have been repeatedly associated with obesity and metabolic parameters in man. We have previously shown the genetic influence of a polymorphism in the gene encoding CBG on some obesity parameters in a small female population. In this study we have explored possible genetic associations between obesity and metabolic measures and CBG or GR polymorphisms in a new male...

Low-cost method for streamlining marker-assisted selection and breeding line development in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

  Simple and economical microsatellite marker detection is important for successful and widespread adoption of marker technology in various breeding programs. A non-automated but fast, reliable and cost effective protocol for microsatellite marker detection is described that requires only standard molecular laboratory equipment. The protocol consists of a leaf sampling method for 96-well plates, tissue grinding...
