The considered different human communities are crossed by a running water which is contaminated by the vibrio cholerae bacterium. The formulated model for each community which is an initial/boundary-value problem constituted of four parabolic partial differential equations, integrates antibiotic treatment, hydration the...

Alharbi, Shine Kadaikunnan, Jamal M. Khaled, Taghreed N. Almanaa, Baskaralingam VaseeharanAbstractβ-Glucan-binding protein (βGBP) is important for the rational expansion of molecular biology. Here, zinc oxide nanoparticle (ZnONP) was synthesized using βGBP from the crab Scylla serrata (Ss-βGBP-ZnONP). Ss-βGBP-ZnONP was observed as a 100 kDa band on sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel and characterized with UV&nd...
