Isolation and Purification of AlAPS. In present work, the yield of AlAPS was 4.31 [+ or -] 0.25%.
Molecular Weight of AlAPS. According to the retention time, the molecular weight distribution of AlAPS polysaccharide was 3.47 x 10 Da.
The monosaccharide compositions of AlAPS and its three purified fractions (AlAPS-1, AlAPS-2, and AlAPS-3) were shown in Figure 2.
In this work, four parameters including reducing power, ferrous ions chelating activity, and scavenging activities on hydroxyl radicals and DPPH radicals were collected to analyze the in vitro antioxidant of AlAPS and its fractions, and the results were shown in Figure 3.
The generative process that this melody exemplifies is explicitly recognized and defined by Sarngadeva in the third chapter of the Sangitaratnakara:(21) he terms it alapti and states that it is applicable to all ragas.(22) We can assume that alapti would in practice have been improvised, no doubt at greater length than in the very short examples that Sarngadeva gives: today the alap of a dhrupad performance, in which the unfolding process would be repeated several times at successively faster tempos and in different styles, might take half an hour or even more.
It should be noted that different priority measurements such as TLevel, BLevel, SLevel, ALAP, and NOO can be used as heuristic values, and the best one should be selected experimentally.
Table 4 lists the results of mean of 10 times of algorithm execution on all the given six graphs using various priority measurements that are TLevel, BLevel, SLevel, ALAP, and NOO introduced in Section II.
The first set of experiments was conducted to specify the qualified priority measurement as heuristic values; TLevel, BLevel, SLevel, ALAP, and NOO were considered, and finally the results showed that ALAP is more appropriate.
