A new hyperbranched polymer based on aconitic acid and two different amine (triethnaol amine and diethylenetriamine) with different functional groups; hydroxyl and amine groups respectively was successfully synthesised by A2B3 polymerization technique and characterised using Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), rheological properties, antimicrobial and cytotoxicity activity. In addition, a new heterocyclic azo dye was synthesised and characterised using FT-IR, NMR, mass spectra and antimicrobial activity. Characterisation provides that both composites and azo dye have been well prepared. A mixture from both hyberbranched polymer and synthesised azo dye have been applied to cotton fabrics. Evaluation of treated fabrics shows that, the surface of treated fabrics has a thin film from applied composite which coated the whole fibre surface. Treated fabrics have good antimicrobial activity against gram positive, gram negative bacteria and fungi. Fastness properties, physical and mechanical properties for treated fabrics were also evaluated.

Membrane fluidity to a large extent is governed by the presence of branched-chain fatty acids (BCFAs). Branched-chain α-keto acid dehydrogenase (BKD) is the key enzyme in BCFA synthesis. A Staphyloco...
Hyper IgM (HIGM) syndromes are a complex of primary immunodeficiency disorders. A 4-years-old boy with recurrent fever and chills, dyspnea, sort throat for a month was admitted to emergency department...
New class IV transaminases with activity towards L-Leu, which is typical of branched-chain amino acid aminotransferases (BCAT), and with activity towards (R)-(+)-1-phenylethylamine ((R)-PEA), which is...
Density functional theory (DFT) was utilized to explore the reduction of gold(III) complexes by the amino acid glycine (Gly). Interestingly, we found that when the nitrogen atom of Gly coordinates to ...
Hydrogels induced by two-component gelator isomers based on the different amine/acid interactions were investigated. Scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy images of the xerogel obta...
Protein-calorie malnutrition is frequently observed in patients with advanced liver cirrhosis. There have been continued interests in potential benefits of long-term oral branched-chain am...
Investigate whether supplementation with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) has a positive effect on cancer cachexia, as measured by the maintenance or increase in weight and lean body mas...
With aging, there is a decrease in muscle mass and function especially in the energy storehouses of cells called mitochondria. Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, and insulin hav...
The aim of this study is to provide pilot data on the possible gastrointestinal predictors of respiratory hyper-responsiveness and how these relate to the clinical sub-types of GERD and vi...
This is study to investigate the plasma free amino acids profile in patients with decompensated liver cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy and its relation to the nutritional state of thes...
A graft consisting of multiple tissues, such as muscle, bone, nerve, vasculature, and skin, comprising a functional unit for reconstructive purposes.
An X-linked hyper-IgM immunodeficiency subtype resulting from mutation in the gene encoding CD40 LIGAND.
Transference of multiple tissues, such as muscle, bone, nerve, and skin, as a functional unit for reconstructive purposes. Blood supply to the transplanted tissues is maintained throughout the transplantation procedure with minimal ischemia. Maintenance of vascularity in the graft promotes its viability, function, and survival in the recipient.
A 20-carbon branched chain fatty acid. In phytanic acid storage disease (REFSUM DISEASE) this lipid may comprise as much as 30% of the total fatty acids of the plasma. This is due to a phytanic acid alpha-hydroxylase deficiency.
An amino acid formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Since neuronal uptake and neuronal receptor sensitivity to beta-alanine have been demonstrated, the compound may be a false transmitter replacing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID. A rare genetic disorder, hyper-beta-alaninemia, has been reported.
