This study aimed to develop and characterize the physicochemical, rheological, microbiological and sensory properties of coffee flavored kefir. Kefir formulations were prepared by adding different amounts of skim milk powder, instant coffee and refined sugar into the fermented milk. The optimal formulation was determined using the desirability function and subjected to Temporal Dominance of Sensations (TDS) test, acceptance and purchase intention. The responses of dry matter, ash, protein, carbohydrate, total energy value, pH, color, antioxidant capacity, acid acetic bacteria, mesophilic cocci, viscosity and TDS test showe...

In this study, we show upregulation of PfGCN5 upon nutrient stress condition. With the help of chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled high-throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq) and transcriptomic (RNA-sequencing) analyses, we show that PfGCN5 is associated with the genes that are important for the maintenance of parasite cellular homeostasis upon nutrient stress condition. Furthermore, we identified various metabolic enzymes as interacting partners of PfGCN5 by immunoprecipitation coupled with mass spectroscopy, possibly acting as a sensor of nutrient conditions in the environment. We also demonstrated that PfGCN5 interacts and ...

What is a coronavirus? Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals, including humans, and birds. Why are they called coronaviruses? The name derives from the fact that the viral capsule has a “halo” or “crown” surrounding it. What do coronaviruses do? In humans, the virus infects the airways giving rise to flu-like symptoms, a runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever, these are usually mild, but in rare cases can be lethal. Is there a vaccine against coronaviruses? No. Are there any drugs to block or treat infection? No. When were coronaviruses first discovered? In the 1960s ...

Experts say wildlife sold for human consumption raises risk of new epidemicsWild animal markets must be banned worldwide, say experts in and outside China, warning that the sale of sometimes endangered species for human consumption is the cause both of the new coronavirus outbreak and other past epidemics.The Huanan seafood market in Wuhan, which has been closed down as the source of the infection, had a wild animal section, where live and slaughtered species were on sale. An inventory list at the Da Zhong domestic and wild animals shop inside the market includes live wolf pups, golden cicadas, scorpions, bamboo rats, squi...
