    Full Text Available Atranorin (ATR is the main compound from the lichen Cladina kalbii Ahti, which grows in the arid regions of northeastern Brazil. This study was conducted to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and toxicological properties of ATR. To evaluate anti-inflammatory properties, paw edema was induced by injecting 0.1 mL of carrageenan into the subplantar region of the right hind paw of rats, and leukocyte migration was induced by injection of 500 µL of carrageenan into the peritoneal cavity of mice. In addition, we determined ATR cytotoxicity in L929 cells by MTT assay and acute (5 g/kg-single dose and subchronic (50 mg/kg-30 days toxicity tests in Wistar rats. The results showed that ATR (100 mg/kg and 200 mg/kg exhibited significant anti-inflammatory activity (paw edema and leukocyte migration. In the acute toxicity test, the animals showed hypoactivity and lethargy during the initial period (first 6 hours and increase in total protein, total and indirect bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase after 14 days in ATR-treated male rats. The subchronic toxicity test revealed increases in total protein, globulin, gamma-glutamyl transferase, alkaline phosphatase, and total and direct bilirubin in ATR-treated female rats. Histological analysis revealed no changes in the architecture and morphology of the organs. These results suggest that ATR has significant anti-inflammatory activity, with no significant acute and subchronic toxicity or cytotoxicity.Atranorina (ATR é o principal composto do líquen Cladina kalbii Ahti, que cresce em terras áridas do nordeste brasileiro.

    2007-12-05

    Growth rates and the ability to date an organism can greatly contribute to understanding its population biology and community dynamics. 1n 1954, Andreev proposed a method to date Cladina, a fruticose lichen, using total thallus length and number of internodes. No research, however, has demonstrated the reliability of this technique or compared its estimates to those derived by other means. In this study, we demonstrate the utility of {sup 14}C/C ratios to determine lichen age and growth rate in Cladina stygia (Fr.) Ahti collected from northwestern Alaska, USA. The average growth rate using {sup 14}C/C ratios was 6.5 mm {center_dot} yr{sup -1}, which was not significantly different from growth rates derived by Andreev's internode method (average = 6.2 mm {center_dot} yr{sup -1}); thus, suggesting the reliability of Andreev's simple field method for dating lichens. In addition, we found lichen growth rates appeared to differ with geographic location, yet did not seem related to ambient temperature and total precipitation.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    KETSIA S.N. MARINHO

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT This study aimed to evaluate the teratogenic and hepatotoxic potential of the usnic acid encapsulated into PLGA-microspheres. In total, 12 female Wistar rats in pregnancy were randomly distributed in the control group (n= 6 that received 1.0 mL of physiological solution and treatment group (n= 6 that received 25 mg/kg of encapsulated usnic acid by oral administration. All females were euthanized at day 20 of pregnancy and their fetuses were removed and analyzed. During the pregnancy was observed a reduction in weight gain. There was no difference in serum transaminases levels analyzed as well as any difference in liver weight in both groups. The histomorphometric analysis of the liver from the treatment group revealed an increase in number of hepatocytes and a decrease in nuclear area of these cells. Moreover, no alteration was observed in cell area of hepatocytes or number of Kupffer cells. The fetuses had an increase in total number of hepatocytes and a reduction in the amount of megakaryocytes. These results show the hepatotoxic potential of usnic acid during pregnancy. However, its toxicity can be minimized by encapsulation in microspheres.

  9. Conformation change of bovine serum albumin induced by bioactive titanium metals and its effects on cell behaviors.

    Hu, X N; Yang, B C

    2014-04-01

    The conformation change of bovine serum albumin (BSA) induced by bioactive titanium surfaces, including acid-alkali-treated titanium (AA-Ti) and alkali-heat-treated titanium (AH-Ti), was studied, and its effects on the activity of MC3T3-E1 cell were evaluated. Pure titanium metal (P-Ti) was used as control. The AA-Ti could adsorb more BSA on its surface than AH-Ti and P-Ti. The α-helix part of the protein adsorbed on P-Ti has weakly decreased compared with native BSA, and it dramatically decreased on AA-Ti and AH-Ti. The β-sheet segment of proteins adsorbed on P-Ti and AH-Ti had obviously increased. Much more tryptophan residues were exposed after the protein conformation changed when it interacted with AH-Ti, and some tryptophan residues were enveloped after it interacted with AA-Ti and P-Ti. AA-Ti has more tryptophan residues enveloped than P-Ti. All titanium surfaces induced tyrosine residues exposed, especially for the P-Ti. The higher ratio of COO(-)/NH3(+) for the proteins on P-Ti and AA-Ti indicated an orientation of proteins on P-Ti and AA-Ti, which makes more COO(-) exposed. The lower ratio of COO(-)/NH3(+) on AH-Ti indicates that more NH3(+) is exposed on its surface. The cell proliferation ability on different treated titanium surfaces coated with BSA followed by the order: P-Ti > AA-Ti > AH-Ti, which indicated that the protein conformation change on different bioactive titanium surfaces has great effect on the cell activity. Our results showed that the different biological response of bioactive titanium metals might depend on the protein conformation change induced by the surface structure.

    Ingestion of peanuts may have a beneficial effect on weight control, possibly due to the satietogenic action of trypsin inhibitors. The aim of this study was to isolate a new trypsin inhibitor in a typical Brazilian peanut sweet (paçoca) and evaluate its effect in biochemical parameters, weight gain and food intake in male Wistar rats. The trypsin inhibitor in peanut paçoca (AHTI) was isolated. Experimental diets were prepared with AIN-93G supplemented with AHTI. Animals had their weight and food intake monitored. Animals were anesthetized, euthanized, and their bloods collected by cardiac puncture for dosage of cholecystokinin (CCK) and other biochemical parameters. Supplementation with AHTI significantly decreased fasting glucose, body weight gain, and food intake. These effects may be attributed to increased satiety, once supplemented animals showed no evidence of impaired nutritional status and also because AHTI increased CCK production. Thus, our results indicate that AHTI, besides reducing fasting glucose, can reduce weight gain via food intake reduction.

  1. Rapid evolution towards heavy metal resistance by mountain birch around two subarctic copper-nickel smelters.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Eränen, J K

    2008-03-01

    Adaptations to pollution among long-lived trees have rarely been documented, possibly because of their long reproductive cycles and the evolutionarily short timescales of anthropogenic pollution. Here, I present the results of a greenhouse experiment that suggest rapid evolutionary adaptation of mountain birch [Betula pubescens subsp. czerepanovii (Orlova) Hämet-Ahti] to heavy metal (HM) stress around two copper-nickel smelters in NW Russia. The adaptation incurs a cost with reduced performance of adapted seedlings in pristine conditions. The industrial barrens around the studied smelters are extremely high-stress sites with low seed germination and survival. It is likely that strong natural selection has eliminated all sensitive genotypes within one or two generations, with only the most tolerant individuals persisting and producing adapted seeds in the individual barrens. The results were similar from around both smelters, suggesting parallel evolution towards HM resistance.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we describe how the Harthill Leadership Development Profile(LDP, a language-based instrument has evolved from Jane Loevinger’s WashingtonUniversity Sentence Completion Test (WUSCT, and has been redesigned to assess andoffer feedback about adults’ action logics in work or educational settings, in the contextof Developmental Action Inquiry (DAI theory, practice, and method (Torbert, 1972,1976, 1987, 1991; Torbert & Associates, 2004.Next, we challenge a recent critique of the LDP as a soft measure unsupported bypublished, quantitative psychometric reliability and validity studies (Stein & Heikkinen,2009 and present both previously unpublished and previously published-but-notaggregatedstudies illustrating Harthill LDP as a well-calibrated measure of adult egodevelopment.Because the DAI approach to social inquiry and social practice invites us all tointerweave first-, second-, and third-person inquiry and everyday action, the validitystudies reported tend to concern field-based experiments seeking to generatedevelopmentally transforming change in adults, including the researchers and/orinterventionists, as well as in the organizations in which they participate.In our conclusion, we briefly consider what a social science and a social practice basedon the developmentally late action-logics will look like, once social science is recognizedas embracing, not just 3rd-person empirical positivist research “on” subjects, but also 1st-,2nd-, and 3rd-person research and action with co-participants in live settings.

  4. Functional characterization of Delta3,Delta2-enoyl-CoA isomerases from rat liver.

    The degradation of unsaturated fatty acids by beta-oxidation involves Delta(3),Delta(2)-enoyl-CoA isomerases (enoyl-CoA isomerases) that catalyze 3-cis --> 2-trans and 3-trans --> 2-trans isomerizations of enoyl-CoAs and the 2,5 --> 3,5 isomerization of dienoyl-CoAs. An analysis of rat liver enoyl-CoA isomerases revealed the presence of a monofunctional enoyl-CoA isomerase (ECI) in addition to mitochondrial enoyl-CoA isomerase (MECI) in mitochondria, whereas peroxisomes contain ECI and multifunctional enzyme 1 (MFE1). Thus ECI, which previously had been described as peroxisomal enoyl-CoA isomerase, was found to be present in both peroxisomes and mitochondria. This enzyme seems to be identical with mitochondrial long-chain enoyl-CoA isomerase (Kilponen, J.M., Palosaari, P.M., and Hiltunen, J.K. 1990. Biochem. J. 269, 223-226). All three hepatic enoyl-CoA isomerases have broad chain length specificities but are distinguishable by their preferences for one of the three isomerization reactions. MECI is most active in catalyzing the 3-cis --> 2-trans isomerization; ECI has a preference for the 3-trans --> 2-trans isomerization, and MFE1 is the optimal isomerase for the 2,5 --> 3,5 isomerization. A functional characterization based on substrate specificities and total enoyl-CoA isomerase activities in rat liver leads to the conclusion that the 3-cis --> 2-trans and 2,5 --> 3,5 isomerizations in mitochondria are catalyzed overwhelmingly by MECI, whereas ECI contributes significantly to the 3-trans --> 2-trans isomerization. In peroxisomes, ECI is predicted to be the dominant enzyme for the 3-cis --> 2-trans and 3-trans --> 2-trans isomerizations of long-chain intermediates, whereas MFE1 is the key enzyme in the 2,5 --> 3,5 isomerization.

Cabrera, Piper regnellii DC., Schinus molle L., Sedum dendroideum Moç et Sessé ex DC., Waltheria douradinha St. Hill., Xanthium cavanillesii Schouw.) used in traditional South Brazilian medicine as wound healing agents were investigated in various biological assays, targeting different aspects in this complex process. The extracts were investigated on NF-kappaB DNA binding, p38alpha MAPK, TNF-alpha release, direct elastase inhibition and its release as well as on caspase-3. Fibroblasts migration to and proliferation into the wounded monolayers were evaluated in the scratch assay, the agar diffusion test for antibacterial and the MTT assay for cytotoxic effects. The hydrophilic extracts from Galinsoga parviflora, Petiveria alliacea, Schinus molle, Waltheria douradinha and Xanthium cavanillesii as well as the lipophilic extract of Waltheria douradinha turned out to be the most active ones. These results increase our knowledge on the wound healing effects of the investigated medicinal plants. Further studies are necessary to find out the effective secondary metabolites responsible for the observed effects.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to investigate the wound healing activity of atranorin cream (Patent requested on excision wounds. Seventy-two male rats were anesthetized and an excisional wound was performed. Then the rats were randomly assigned into three groups: untreated control group; atranorin 1 (group treated with 1% AT ointment; and atranorin 5 (group treated with 5% AT ointment. Six animals of each group were euthanized 3, 7, 14 or 21 days after surgical procedures and the wounded areas were analyzed and removed. Serial histological sections were obtained and stained by histochemical techniques (Hematoxilin-Eosin-HEand Sirius red and immunohistochemical techniques. Topical application of atranorin reduced wound areas, induced earlier granulation tissue formation, increased cell proliferation, improved collagenization and modulated the myofibroblasts differentiation when compared to control animals. It is suggested that atranorin modulates the wound healing process. These data suggest that this formulation based on atranorin extracted from Cladina kalbii AHTI may be a new biotechnological product for wound healing clinical applications.

    1993-10-01

    The observed rate of increase of N{sub 2}O (0.18% to 0.26% annually) is a matter of increasing concern both because N{sub 2}O is a greenhouse gas and has a major and unfavorable influence on the ozone layer (Weiss, 1981). The combustion contribution to the overall nitrous oxide budget is difficult to assess; yet the emission of N{sub 2}O from fluidized bed combustion (FBC) has been identified in the past few years as significant. It was concluded in the European workshop, 1988 that the emission level from a coal-fired fluidized bed boiler is 50--200 ppM but it is only 1--20 ppM in boilers equipped with other types of combustion devices. For this reason it is worthwhile to investigate the emissions from FBC more thoroughly. Gaseous fuels (Miller and Bowman, 1989), but the N{sub 2}O emissions under fluidized bed conditions is poorly understood. In fluidized bed combustion, N{sub 2}O can arise from homogeneous gas phase reactions involving amines and cyano species (Hiltunen et al, 1991) or it can be formed from heterogeneous reactions (eg. char oxidation). Removal of N{sub 2}O can be brought about by gas phase reactions or by catalytic or non-catalytic heterogeneous reduction on char/limestone. This work was carried out with an objective of enhancing the fundamental understanding of coal and char nitrogen reaction pathways in fluidized bed combustion environment. The formation and destruction of HCN and N{sub 2}O under variety of influential parameters were investigated. This simulation contained a nonisothermal single particle combustion in a preheated reactor and a gas phase reaction are designed to stimulate the nitrogen chemistry in a circulating fluidzied bed. The LSODE differential equation solver used for single particle combustion and the CHEMKIN package, developed by Sandia National Laboratories, was applied for gas phase reactions. This computational work was done as an exploratory research program under the solicitation of the DOE fossil energy utilization.

    tolerate. One wants to tolerate as many failure classes as needed to satisfy the stochastic requirements of the protocol [1] while still maintaining a sufficient performance. Since clients of a protocol have different requirements with respect to the performance/fault-tolerance trade-off, one would like to be able to customize protocols such that one can select an appropriate performance/fault-tolerance trade-off. In this special section Hiltunen et al describe how one can compose protocols from micro-protocols in their Cactus system. They show how a group RPC system can be tailored to the needs of a client. In particular, they show how considering additional failure classes affects the performance of a group RPC system.
