Objective: Present communication deals with the study of antihepatotoxic activity and molecular prediction of compounds isolated from Phyllanthus debelis in order to search lead compound. Methods: Five compounds from the whole plant of P. debelis were subjected to molecular properties prediction and drug-likeness by Lipinski rule of five & Molinspiration software. Results: All the compounds were found in compliance with Lipinski 'Rule of Five' except the Milog P valve of compound No. I-IV were found above five means these compounds have less permeability across the cell membrane. The Milog P valve of Compound No V & standard compound silibinin VI were found below five, suggest that the molecules have good permeability across the cell membrane. In respect of TPSA, all the compounds were within the limit i.e. 160 å. The bioactivity score was also calculated for GPCR ligand, ion channel modulator, kinase inhibitor, nuclear receptor ligand. All the compound showed activity through enzyme inhibition. Conclusions: Our study shows that compound V debelolactone has good drug likeness score with no violations & good bioactivity score as compared to silibinin which is potent hepatoprotective drug. So compound V debelolactone can be a lead compound with hepatoprotective activity from Phyllanthus debelis. © 2012 Asian Pacific Tropical Biomedical Magazine. Source

Yoghurt is a snow white, custard like fermented milk product, obtained through the controlled lactic acid fermentation of milk by Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophiles. A study was undertaken by using different levels of Goat milk and Apple pulp i.e. T1 (90:10), T2 (85:15), T3 (80:20) respectively. Experimental fruit yoghurt mix was standardized to 4.0% fat, 11.5% solids not fat, 10% sugar and 2% culture adjusted to 25.2% total solids. Yoghurt samples for different treatments were analyzed for organoleptic attributes (colour and appearance, body and texture, taste and flavour) by trained panelist using 9 point hedonic scale. The fruit yoghurt obtained from (80:20) (T3) ratio was the best product among all treatments. Thus, as far as product acceptability judged by organoleptic evaluation, the treatment can be rated as T3 > T0 > T2 > T1. Source
