Bioactive plant food compounds which are derived from plant sources are called as plant bioactives. The best example is mushrooms which is highly nutritious for health. Bioactive compounds play a vital role in living beings; they can be used as anticancer drugs. The protein fragments synthesised by plant or animal is called bioactive peptide, these fragments help in functioning and synthesis of living tissue etc. Most of the fermented products are also referred as bioactive compounds or peptides which are being used as dairy products. Some of the factors which affect the biological activity of bioactive compounds include chemical properties, physicochemical properties, resonance and inductive effects, transfer of electrons, types of bonding in each molecule apart from its arrangement. One of the striking features of bioactive compounds is that they are tap safe. It means that they can be put in the tank for cleaning purpose just as we put goldfish in the tank.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
