The total genomic DNA was extracted by following CTAB (hexa decyl trimethyl ammonium bromide) method by Murrayand Thomson (1980) with some modification (Naz et al., 2015).
2g Co(NO3)2*6H2O, 1g Hexa decyl trimethyl ammonium Bromide (CTAB), 6 ml water and 30 ml absolute methanol were mixed together under vigorous magnetic stirring.
According to the report, demand for capryl and decyl is significantly higher than other product types.
There are gentler surfactants available (like decyl glucoside, which is often found in baby shampoos).
This difference in activity would be influenced by the type of substituent in N-position of Isatin nucleus, pointing that the smaller the substituent in N-position, the higher the resultant activity, whereas bulky N-substituents such as benzyl and decyl groups cause steric clashes that decrease the effective binding to receptors, hence resulting in lower activity.
Examples of emollients include cetyl stearate, glyceryl stearate, octyl octanoate, decyl oleate, and isostearyl alcohol.
Decyl glucoside is another frequent culprit that is not included in commercial patch test kits.
Researchers used the North American Contact Dermatitis Group 65-allergen series, which includes decyl glucoside (5% in petrolatum).
