ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF MICROBES ASSOCIATED WITH SPOILAGE CANNED FOOD SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM

ABSTRACTLactic acid bacteria (LAB) associated with gaseous spoilage of modified – atmosphere – packaged, raw, tomato – marinated boiler meat striped were identified on the basis of a restriction fragment.Lactic acid bacteria are the dominant spoilage organisms in vacuum or modifies atmosphere – packaged meat products. Spoilage is mainly caused by lactobacillus. The activities of these organisms at stationary phase produce the compounds associated with sensory spoilage.The present stud...

EXPLORATION OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL OF CITRUS MAXIMA (SHADDOCK) LEAF ON RAT.

ABSTRACTCitrus maxima (shaddock) is a medicinal plant used in Asia, and in some parts of Africa, because they are rich in flavonoids and some other phytoconstituent which contributed to their wide range of biological activities ranging from anti-inflammatory activity, antioxidant activity and anti tumor activity. Inflammation is the biochemical and cellular response that occurs in all vascularized tissues whose health is threatened either by internal or external source such as pathogens, dama...

ADVANTAGES OF USING IMMOBILIZED ENZYMES OR BIOCATALYST IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESS

ABSTRACTS Immobilized enzymes have been widely used in the processing of variety of products. New strategies are continuously emerging for the formation of diverse immobilized enzymes having superior efficiency and usage. Immobilized enzymes have biomedical and industrial applications and for this reason, this area has continued to develop into an ever-expanding and multidisciplinary field during the last couple of decades. This study is a review of the latest literatures on different en...

Comparative analysis of hydraform and sandcrete blocks

ABSTRACTWallingmaterials play a vital role in the construction of buildings. The study run acomparative analysis between Hydraform blocks and sandcrete blocks which areboth major components of walling to ascertain which block is more costeffective, has high compressive strength and compare the benefit of Hydraformblock to sandcrete block. Snowball sampling technique was used to sample datafrom nine professionals who have experience in the use of both Hydraform blocksand sandcrete blocks. An i...

An Analysis of Determinants of Accident Involving Marine Vessels in Nigeria’s Waterways

Cases of marine vessel accident involving personal injury, deaths, property and environmental damage have grown in tandem with increased oil prospecting and other commercial seaborne transportation activities in Niger-Delta/coastal regions of Nigeria. The incidence of marine vessel casualties and associated risk factors generate serious concern as further empirical evidence suggests that between 75-96% of marine vessel casualties are caused at least in part by some form of human error. This s...

THE USE OF HYDROGEN AS A HARMLESS SOURCE OF ENERGY

ABSTRACTHydrogen is an energy carrier that can transform our fossil fuel dependent economy into a hydrogen economy; t can provide an emission free transportation fuel.  Hydrogen has the highest combustion energy per batter relative to any other fuel. It is more efficient on a weight basis than fuels used currently. It offers 2-3 times more energy than most other common fuels.  It combines readily with oxygen releasing considerable energy as heat and water Hydrogen storage and transp...
