At least 19 human aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) genes and enzymes have been studied among vertebrate organisms. BLAT and BLAST analyses were undertaken of Xenopus tropicalis (western clawed frog) and Xenopus laevis (African clawed frog) genomes which are related diploid (N = 20) and allotetraploid (N = 36) species, respectively. The corresponding ALDH genes and proteins within these Xenopus genomes were identified and studied. Evidence is presented for tetraploid copies of 10 Xenopus laevis ALDH...

Abstract null null Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a fungal secondary metabolite produced by certain species of Aspergillus and Penicillium, and exerts immunosuppressive effect on humans and animals. Quercetin (QUE) is one of the flavonoids produced as a plant-secondary metabolite. The present study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of QUE against the immunotoxic hazard of OTA in broiler chickens. Forty one-day-old broiler chicks were randomly and equally allocated into four groups; control, OTA (0.5 ...

Abstract null null The aim of the present study was investigate the binding affinity of 5-((4-methoxyphenyl)thio)benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (MTDZ) with acetylcholinesterase (AChE). We also evaluated the effect of MTDZ against scopolamine (SCO)-induced amnesia in mice and we looked at the toxicological potential of this compound in mice. The binding affinity of MTDZ with AChE was investigated by molecular docking analyses. For an experimental model, male Swiss mice were treated daily with MTDZ (1...

Abstract null null The use of schiff base complex against microbial agentes a has recently received more attention as a strategy to combat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria and leishmania. This study aimed to evaluate the toxicity, antibacterial and leishmanicidal activities of the nickel (II) chloride schiff base complex ([Ni(L2)] against Leishmania amazonensis promastigote, multi-resistant bacterial strains and evaluate to modulate antibiotic activity against multi-resistant ba...

Abstract null null Gelatin nanoparticles are a versatile class of nanoparticles with wide applications, especially in drug delivery and gene delivery. The inherent biocompatible nature of gelatin and various functional groups can improve the cellular interactions and enhance the efficacy of different drug formulations. Microfluidic hydrodynamic flow-focusing techniques can be used for the synthesis of gelatin nanoparticles. The present work syntheses nitrogen-doped carbon dots conjugated with ge...

Abstract null null Methylglyoxal (MG) is a reactive metabolite derived from different physiological pathways. Its production can be harmful to cells via glycation reactions of lipids, DNA, and proteins. But, the effects of MG on mitochondrial functioning and bioenergetic responses are still elusive. Then, the effects of MG on key parameters of mitochondrial functionality were examined here. Isolated rat liver mitochondria were exposed to 0.1–10 mM of MG to determine its toxicity in the mitochond...

Abstract null null In this work, new thiosemicarbazides (ECA-1, ECA-2) and their Cu (II) complexes (ECA-1-Cu, ECA-2-Cu) were synthesized and their structures were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, FT-IR, LC-MS, UV–Vis, and thermogravimetric analysis methods. Also, the surface morphology of the all compounds were examined by SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope). In the second stage, in vitro antioxidant capacity of the obtained compounds was investigated. The evaluation of the antioxidant propertie...

The challenges and difficulties associated with conventional drug delivery systems have led to the emergence of novel, advanced targeted drug delivery systems. Therapeutic drug delivery of proteins and peptides to the lungs is complicated owing to the large size and polar characteristics of the latter. Nevertheless, the pulmonary route has attracted great interest today among formulation scientists, as it has evolved into one of the important targeted drug delivery platforms for the delivery of ...

Doping quantum dots (QDs) with extra element presents a promising future for their applications in the fields of environmental monitoring, commercial products and biomedical sciences. However, it remains unknown for the influence of doping on the molecular biocompatibility of QDs and the underlying mechanisms of the interaction between doped-QDs and protein molecules. Using the "one-pot" method, we synthesized N-acetyl-l-cysteine capped CdTe: Zn2+ QDs with higher fluorescence quantum yield, impr...
