Essay Examples on Proteins

TWS and UWF had lower swelling power thus had low peak viscosity

However, the TWS and UWF had lower swelling power thus had low peak viscosity, which can cause a decrease in settling volume. This low peak viscosity can be seen in the viscosity curve in Fig 5. It might because of resistance to swelling as there are more interactions in starch chains. Low swelling in starch cause less viscosity that can be seen from the viscosity curve as it was located lower viscosity level Radhiah 2013. The interaction between starch and protein also affects the pasting in wheat flour Huang et al 2015. Thermal properties will be determined through this analysis for starch gelatinization after heating using DSC. Based on Table 1 the gelatinization temperature covers three temperatures which are onset peak and conclusion temperature to be determined on all samples. There was no significant difference p 0 05 between all samples. The onset temperature of UWF TWF UWS and TWS are 98 98 71 06 64 64 and 104 56. The peak temperature of UWF TWF UWS and TWS are 109 61 116 06 90 01 and 118 65. The conclusion temperature of UWF TWF UWS and TWS are 124 26 121 49 124 92 and 130 51. Most of all gelatinization of treated samples had increased significantly than untreated samples. The heat moisture treatment affects the sample which can raise gelatinization temperature than control samples.

Novel Immune booster: Oncolytic Protein to fight Cancer.

Background. Proteins are the workhorses of the cell. This is no doubt an authentic statement about proteins. From their discovery up to now, these are believed to be the main biomolecule for maintaining all regulatory and structural activities of the body. Scientists are working for years in order to explore new proteins and this passion always leads them to new discoveries and innovations. Millions of proteins have been discovered performing tremendous functions inside the human body. In recent research investigators from Imperial College UK, have discovered an incredible novel protein named LEM Protein Lymphocyte Expansion Molecule, that boosts the body’s own immune system to fight against cancer in such a way that was not possible in the past. Said by the lead investigator Professor Philip Ashton Richard, Department of medicine at Imperial College UK.
