Defense manifestations of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants in Ricinus communis L. exposed to lead in hydroponics

acclimatization, saplings of uniform height were selected and treated separately with Pb(NO 3 ) 2 at different concentrations (200 μM and 400 μM) maintained under above conditions. The control plants were without metal treatment. Roots excised after ten days of treatment processed for analysis at various endpoints described as follows. Chlorophyll fluorescence Chlorophyll a (Chl a) fluorescence variables were measured on same leaves which were used previously for leaf gas exchange measurements by using MINI- version of imaging PAM (Heinz Walz GmbH, Effeltrich, Germany

Lachish River event monitored for toxicity using bioluminescent reporter organisms

therefore be important to include as first alarm monitoring a biologically based toxicity bioassay so as to identify and assess putative biological hazards, whose actual causative agents, if any, may then later be assessed for their presence in the sample. Whole cell based bioreporter bioassays offer advantages as they are sensitive, provide a rapid measurement, are cost effective, and they provide an indication of the type of biological effect caused by the causative substances or other environmental stresses ( 14 ). These sensors do not require any complex sample

Thorax mapping for localized lung impedance change using focused impedance measurement (FIM): A pilot study

Introduction Focused impedance measurement (FIM) [ 1 , 2 ] is a comparatively new technique that had been developed at the Department of Biomedical Physics and Technology (BMPT) of the University of Dhaka for measuring impedance. It has three versions having 8, 6 and 4 electrodes in special configurations. In a 6-elctrode-FIM, current is driven through two concentric pairs of orthogonal electrodes while another pair of electrodes with a smaller separation is placed at 45° to either of the current drive directions at the central zone for potential measurement

Toxic, but beneficial compounds from endophytic fungi of Carica papaya

/v)) as the mobile phase. Also, 330 mg of E. sorghinum ’s crude extract (code name: CP1) was separated on Sephadex LH-20 using DCM:MeOH (1:1 (v/v)) as the mobile phase. The metabolites-containing fractions were further purified using semi-preparative HPLC to isolate the pure compounds. Compounds 1 (4.4 mg) and 2 (1.9 mg) were isolated from F. equiseti ’s extract; while compound 3 (3.8 mg) was isolated from the extract of E. sorghinum Analytical HPLC was used to evaluate the purity of the isolated compounds. General procedures NMR measurements of the

Inhibitory effects of agmatine on monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity: Reconciling the discrepancies

was performed in 96-well polystyrene microliterplates (Corning, NY) and monitored at 37°C from the absorbance change at 492 nm in a Labsystems Multiskan MS microplate reader. In some experiments the reaction was performed in vials, and the overall absorbance spectrum was obtained using a spectrophotometer (Varian). Absorbance measurements were performed every 10 minutes for 20–40 min. Results Following the addition of MAO substrate tyramine, a significant MAO activity could be observed in rat liver homogenates. This was visualized by peroxidase-coupled assay

forefront. In this context, it is necessary to create a vision in health services by focussing on information and communication technologies and especially preventive health services. The disease prevention system is primarily based on a detailed description of the individual (e.g. clinical, molecular, imaging and sensor-based). The idea of personalised medicine consists of genomic risk assessment along with other clinical trials, and the personalised medicine and personal genomic language is now in common use. Future personalised biosensors can perform measurements that
