This study involves the investigation of antioxidant phenolic and flavonoid compounds in Rheum ribes L. There is a continuous mounting pressure, in the scientific world, to discover new and potent antioxidants, to combat the free radicals. Among the antioxidant compounds, the phenolics and flavonoids comprise the largest class, and thus hold an important place in biochemical studies. Rheum ribes belong to the family of Polygonaceae in the genus Rheum, which is consumed as a medicinal plant. Since this plant is a source of one of the most important crude drugs in the Middle East (Kashiwada et al., 1988), its antioxidative properties were also worthwhile to be investigated as well as its phenolic constituents. In this study, the crude extract of the roots of Rheum ribes subjected to solvent-solvent fractionation. and each of the fractions were then subjected to the DPPH , total phenolic content and total flavonoids tests. Ethyl acetate fraction exhibited the highest antioxidant capacity, total phenolics and flavonoids compounds. Further analysis by RP-HPLC showed that all fractions contained different number of phenolic compounds and gallic acid, p-coumaric acid and quercetin were present according to the co-injection in RP-HPLC in ethyl acetate extract.

This study involves the investigation of antioxidant phenolic compounds in Aconitum cochleare. There is a continuous mounting pressure, in the scientific world, to discover new and potent antioxidants, to combat the free radicals. Among the antioxidant compounds, the phenolics comprise the largest class, and thus hold an important place in biochemical studies. Phenolics are abundantly present in some plant families as secondary metabolites and Ranunculaceae is one of those families that contain alkaloids an...
Determination of binary pesticide mixtures by an acetylcholinesterase-choline oxidase biosensor
Kok, FN; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2004-02-15)
In this study, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and choline oxidase (ChO) were co-immobilized on poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) membranes to construct a biosensor for the detection of anti-cholinesterase compounds. pHEMA membranes were prepared with the addition of SnCl4 to achieve the desired porosity. Immobilization of the enzymes was done by surface attachment via epichlorohydrin (Epi) and Cibacron Blue F3G-A (CB) activation. Enzyme immobilized membrane was used in the detection of anti-cholineste...
Characterization of Green Tea Extract Loaded Liposomes
Dag, Damla; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2016-08-25)
Green tea extract was encapsulated into liposomes to enhance bioavailability and stability of catechins that are the main bioactive compounds and to protect the functional properties of green tea. Green tea extract (w/w 0.1%) was encapsulated by dispersing 1 % (w/w) soy lecithin through high pressure homogenization and ultrasonication techniques. Effect of homogenization type and pH of the dispersing medium was investigated. Mean particle size, total phenolic content by FolinCiocalteu Method and antioxidant...
Assessment of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey using biomarker responses in fish
BOZCAARMUTLU, AZRA; Sapmaz, Canan; Aygun, Zuleyha; Arinc, Emel (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-01)
Aim of this study was to determine the extent of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey by measuring CYP1A associated EROD activity, phase II enzyme, glutathione S-transferase and antioxidant enzymes, catalase and glutathione reductase activities and immunochemical detection of CYP1A protein level in the liver of mullet. The fish samples were caught from six locations having a varying degree of pollution in the West Black Sea Region of Turkey in August 2005, 2006 and 2007. Mullets caught from Zongu...
Characterization of thermoluminescence kinetic parameters of beta irradiated B doped Ca-5(PO4)(3)OH powder obtained from eggshell
Depci, T.; Oglakci, M.; Sezer, Selda; YÜCEL, AYTAÇ; DOĞAN, TAMER; Souadi, G.; TOPAKSU, MUSTAFA; Can, N. (2021-07-01)
In this study, we have synthesized B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) by a sonication chemical method. The thermoluminescence (TL) properties of the family of synthesized samples (B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) were investigated using an IRSL-TL 565 nm filter. This gave the highest TL intensity of each phosphor after 2 Gy beta-irradiation. Three TL glow peaks of B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) are centered at around 84, 208 and 324 degrees C (with a heating rate of 2 degrees Cs-1). The trapping parameters such as activation en...
