Toxicological Effect of Monosodium Glutamate in Seasoning on Human Health

The use of seasonings to enhance the flavor of food has been on the increase in recent time. Different types of seasonings are produced daily. Theconstituent of these flavor-enhancers is unknown to ignorant consumers. They only want to eat food with good taste without consideration of theeffect of these additives on their health. These seasonings contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) which really spiced the food. This review focuses onthe toxicological effect of monosodium glutamate in seasoning...

Quality Assessment of Sachet and Bottled Water in Ogbomoso Metropolis, Nigeria

Background: Access to potable water has become a difficult task in many countries of the worldincluding Nigeria. In Nigeria, the government is trying her best to make water supply available tothe masses but till now this vision has never been accomplished. If those living in urban areascould not have access to portable water supply by the government, what is the fate of the peopleliving in rural areas? This has led to increased usage of sachet and bottled water as portabledrinking water.Aim: ...

CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1       Background of the ResearchThe task of managing applicants’ records and processing is quite an arduous one, because of the high data turnover, strenuous processing operations and requirements for speed and accuracy in matching a potential applicant to the right job. The increasing complexity and highly dynamic nature of applicants’ records management processes has made it necessary to embrace the use of Computer and Infor...

The design and implementation of student information system

                                    CHAPTER ONE1.0       INTRODUCTION  In this project, the student is facilitated by the offline system for registering students and changing password, add/drop subjects, viewing exam results, registering courses of studies, and to see rules and regulations.

Adsorption efficiency of coconut husk for removal of Rhodamine-B dye from aqueous solution

ABSTRACTThe efficiency of acid modified locust bean pod (ALBP) as low cost adsorbent to remove Rhodamine-B (Rh-B) dye from aqueous solution was studied. The morphology, functional groups and elemental analysis of the adsorbent were investigated by SEM, FTIR, pH (pzc), and Boehm titration analyticaltechniques. Operational parameters such as contact time, initial dye concentration and solution temperature were investigated. The amount of Rh-B dye adsorbed was found to increase as these opera...

A GEOELECTRIC SURVEY OF UNDERGROUNDWATER AT AL-QALAM UNIVERSITY KATSINA CLINIC USING VERTICAL ELECTRICAL SOUNDING

ABSTRACTElectrical resistivity method employing vertical electrical sounding was carried out in September, 2018 with aim to investigate favorable area for good groundwater potential. Four points were selected around the University clinic and female hostel for vertical electrical sounding (VES) using schlumberger configuration. Maximum current electrode separation of 160m to 200m was used. The investigation was carried out using Terrameter Allied Ohmega. The survey was able to investigate grou...

Design and Implementation of a Campus Navigation System

 ABSTRACTMobile phones are nowadays, far more than merely communication devices. In particular, Smartphones  and Tablets are  products  that  help  to  make  our  works  and  everyday  life  easier.  Along  with  the advance  in  technology  and  popularity  of  these  devices,  the  use  of  mobile  applications  increased enormously  in  the  last   few years.  Based  on  new  techniques  like  Global Positioning System (GPS)  and  sensors,  like ...

Phylogenetic and In Silico Analysis of Niemann-pick type C1 (NPC1) Transporter Required for Ebola Viral Entry

Ebola  virus  (EBOV) has recently emerged as a highly virulent organism of concern to humans. The pathology behind the hemorrhagic fever within an EBOV host remains largely unclear, and demands rather novel therapeutics to effectively eradicate this virus. The Niemann-pick type C1 (NPC1) protein cholesterol transporter is required for EBOV entry and internalization into a mammalian host cell. On this premise, an organism’s NPC1  can  decide  the  virus-species  specificity.  Here, ...

Prebiotics-a viable prophylaxis against Salmonella typhii

SummarySo far, majority of the preventive effect of prebiotics has been on animal models. However, several in vitro studies using 2D and 3D cell cultures mimicking the environmental condition as well as various organisms present within the gut of man had shown the efficacy of prebiotics in reducing the attachment of enteropathogenic organisms like S. typhi to the gut epithelium. In vivo studies with human have been able to prove its efficacy in preventing diseases such as Inflammatory b...

Amylase Production by Solid State Fermentation of Corn (Zea Mays) Stem Using Fusarium and Mucor

Abstract The study aimed at producing amylase from corn stem using Mucor and Fusarium in solid state fermentation. The Fungi used in this study were isolated from the rhizosphere of the corn plant. Solid state technique was adopted for the fermentation process using spore suspension as inoculum. Various fermentation parameters such as  incubation days, addition of salt supplement, substrate concentration, mycelia suspension and temperature were optimized during fermentation with the...

Design and Implementation of an Online Payroll Management System

ABSTRACTPayroll is a critical operation for every organization to pay employee accurately their salary and enrolments on time. The idea of taking control of employees pay calculations are quite tedious if done manually and require more effort and time mainly for big organizations. Hence if this process is automated, it would be of great benefit as it would require less time to calculate the salary of the employees. This system provides multiple user data access. Each user like employee or HR ...

Evaluation of the phytochemical composition and antimicrobial activity of lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) against some human pathogenic microorganisms

ABSTRACTAntibiotic resistance has become a wide spread problem. The efficacy of two solvent extracts of Cymbopogon citratus against some test bacteria and fungi was evaluated. The test bacteria was; Staphylococcus aureus, and the test fungi was; Candida albicans. The phytochemical properties and the antimicrobial potency of Cymbopogon citratus (lemon grass) against selected microbial pathogens using chloroform and methanol as extracting solvents were assessed. The minimum inhibitory, bacteric...

GEOSPATIAL ANALYSIS OF PETROLEUM FILLING STATIONS EFFECT ON DOMESTIC WATER SOURCE IN MINNA, NIGER STATE

This study assesses the quality of domestic ground water sources close to petrol filling stations with a view to determining the level of vulnerability. It Map out filling stations and domestic water sources within their proximity with the aid of GIS, determining their level of proximity to domestic water sources, carrying out physiochemical analysis of the water samples within the proximity of filling station within the study area to check the level of contamination. Primary and s...

Design and Implementation of Student Attendance Monitoring System Using Fingerprint

ABSTRACT This project is on the design and development of portable and reliable fingerprint based student attendance monitoring system that can be used to monitor attendance of the student.
