Phagocytic activity and oxygen metabolism of peripheral blood granulocytes from rabbits experimentally infected with Trichophyton mentagrophytes

using the commercial Phagotest kit (Orpegen Pharma, Germany), according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Heparinised peripheral blood (100 μL) was incubated with 20 μL of FITC-labelled heat-killed E . coli (10 cfu) for 20 min at 37°C, a negative control remained in the ice bath for 20 min. At the end of the incubation, all the samples were placed in the ice bath in order to stop phagocytosis. A volume of 100 μL of ice-cold Quenching Solution was added to each sample. The samples were mixed (by vortex mixer) for 2 min at 25°C. Then, 3 mL of cold washing solution

Genotoxicity and mutagenicity of inosine pranobex

of lyophilised Salmonella typhimurium mutant strains (TA97a, TA98, TA100, TA102, and TA1535) and were incubated in the bottle overnight at 37 ° C. The final concentrations of inosine pranobex (0.1, 0.5, 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, and 1,000 μg/mL) were obtained by dilution in sterile distilled water. The samples to be tested were sterilised using a 0.22 μm membrane filter. The reaction mixture was prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions as follows: 43.24 mL (A) + 9.5 mL (B) + 4.76 mL (C) + 2.38 mL (D) + 0.12 mL (E) where A is Davis-Mingioli salts

New method of analysis of nitrofurans and nitrofuran metabolites in different biological matrices using UHPLC-MS/MS

-aminohydantoin (AHD), semicarbazide (SEM), 3-amino-2-oxazolidone (AOZ), and the internal standards 1,2-(15N2, 13C) SEM, AMOZ-d5, (3C13) AHD, and AOZ-d4 were purchased from the Sigma-Aldrich Chemical Company (Germany). UHPLC-MS/MS The UHPLC-MS/MS system consisted of an AB Sciex ExionLC UHPLC system connected to an AB Sciex API 5500 Qtrap mass spectrometer (AB Sciex, Canada). Analyst 1.6.3 software (AB Sciex) controlled the UHPLC-MS/MS system and Multiquant 3.2 (AB Sciex) was used to process the data. The MS/MS was operated as previously described with some modifications ( 10

Influence of the genetic makeup of common carp on the expression of iron-related genes during Trypanoplasma borreli infection

to a reaction mix, containing 12.5 μL of GoTaq qPCR Master Mix 2x, 5.5 μL of nuclease-free H 2 O, and 1 μL (concentration 10 μM) of each primer, making a total volume of 25 μL per reaction. Each sample was prepared in duplicate. A non-template control was included for each set of primers. The following cycling profile was applied: 50°C for 2 min, 95°C for 10 min, 40 cycles of 95°C for 15 s, 60°C for 1 min, and 72°C for 30 s, with the final holding stage at 60°C for 1 min. As a control, the 40 S ribosomal protein S11 gene was used. The comparative 2 -ΔΔCt method
