AbstractRadioactive skin contamination is one of the most likely risks which occurs after accidental or occupational radiological accidents apart from internal contamination. In such cases where the radioactive contamination has occurred, the person who is contaminated should be decontaminated as early as possible to reduce the damaging health effects of radiation. In the present study, the decontamination efficiency of a developed skin decontamination kit “dermadecon” has been evaluated in anim...

Abstract Acrylamide is a well-known potentially carcinogen compound formed during thermal processing as an intermediate of Maillard reactions. Three objectives were addressed: the impact of gastric digestion on acrylamide content of French Fries, chips, chicken nuggets, onions rings, breakfast cereals, biscuits, crackers, instant coffee and coffee substitute; the acrylamide content evolution during gastrointestinal digestion of French fries and chips; and the effectiveness of blanching and air-f...

Abstract Background and purpose Neuronal cell apoptosis is an important pathological change in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Berberine, an isoquinoline alkaloid isolated and extracted from Coptidis and rhizome and Cortex phellodendri, has a wide range of pharmacological effects. In this study, we investigated the neuroprotective effects of Berberine against neuronal insults induced by Aβ25-35 in primary cultured hippocampal neurons. Methods Primary neuron cells have been isolated from hippocampus of...

Abstract Acrylamide (AA) is a common food contaminant formed during food heat processing that has neurotoxic effects. We hypothesize that AA induces oxidative stress in astrocytes and microglia, leading to neurotoxicity. Oxidative status, translocation of Nrf2 and NF-κB, and related down-stream targets were measured in primary astrocytes and microglia obtained from BALB/c mice. The results showed that AA increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and reduced glutathione levels, causing su...

Acrylamide (AA) is a common chemical, produced during food processing and widely used in various industries and laboratory processes. Thus, AA causes a significant risk for human and animal health. Recently published studies have suggested that reproductive toxicity of AA and glycidamide (GA) was mainly due to the oxidative stress which can lead to cell apoptosis. The present experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of oxidative stress on the apoptosis of mouse Leydig (TM3) and Sertoli...

Substantial evidence has shown that the oxidative damage to hippocampal neurons is associated with the cognitive impairment induced by adverse stimuli during gestation named prenatal stress (PS). Taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid, possesses multiple roles in the brain as a neuromodulator or antioxidant. In this study, to explore the roles of taurine in PS-induced learning and memory impairment, prenatal restraint stress was set up and Morris water maze (MWM) was employed for testing ...

Acrylamide (ACR) is a vinyl monomer with established human neurotoxic effects, which is characterized by the accumulation of neurofilaments (NFs) in the distal swellings of large axons in peripheral and central nervous systems. However, the mechanisms of neurotoxicity remain unclear. The objective is to investigate the neuroprotective effect of calpeptin (CP) on ACR-induced neuropathy and its mechanism. Female adult Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups (control, CP, ACR, and ACR + ...

Abstract We have recently reported on the efficacy of an N-methyl- d -aspartate (NMDA) receptor partial antagonist, S-Methyl-N,N-diethylthiolcarbamate sulfoxide (DETC-MeSO), in improving outcome following stroke, including reduced infarct size and calcium influx, suppressing the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-induced apoptosis as well as improving behavioral outcome. DETC-MeSO was shown to suppress the protein kinase R-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (PERK) pathway, one of the major ER stre...

The mechanism underlying acrylamide-induced neurotoxicity remains controversial. Previous studies have focused on acrylamide-induced toxicity in adult rodents, but neurotoxicity in weaning rats has not been investigated. To explore the neurotoxic effect of acrylamide on the developing brain, weaning rats were gavaged with 0, 5, 15, and 30 mg/kg acrylamide for 4 consecutive weeks. No obvious neurotoxicity was observed in weaning rats in the low-dose acrylamide group (5 mg/kg). However, rats from ...

BACKGROUND Taurine has become a popular supplement among athletes attempting to improve performance. While the effectiveness of taurine as an ergogenic aid remains controversial, this paper summarizes the current evidence regarding the efficacy of taurine in aerobic and anaerobic performance, metabolic stress, muscle soreness, and recovery. METHODS Google Scholar, Web of Science, and MedLine (PubMed) searches were conducted through September 2020. Peer-reviewed studies that investigated taurine ...

The presented study investigates the effects of morin against toxicity induced by acrylamide (ACR) in the brains of Sprague Dawley rats. In this study, neurotoxicity was induced by orally administering 38.27 mg/kg/b.w ACR to rats through gastric gavage for 10 days. Morin was administered at the same time and at different doses (50 and 100 mg/kg/b.w) with ACR. Biochemical and Western blot analyses showed that ACR increased malondialdehyde (MDA), p38α mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38α MAPK), ...

Acrylamide (ACR), one of the most toxic chemical agents in humans and animals has several uses in different industries. Carnosic acid is an important biological antioxidant extracted from rosemary. In this study, the protective effect of carnosic acid on ACR-induced neurotoxicity in rat and PC12 cells has been investigated. Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into eight groups including (1) control group, (2) ACR (50 mg/kg, i.p.), (3-6) ACR plus carnosic acid (5, 10, 20, and 40 mg/kg, i.p.), ...

BACKGROUND Acrylamide (ACR) formed during heating of tobacco and carbohydrate-rich food as well as widely applied in industries has been known as a well-established neurotoxic pollutant. Although the precise mechanism is unclear, enhanced apoptosis, oxidative stress and inflammation have been demonstrated to contribute to the ACR-induced neurotoxicity. In this study, we assessed the possible anti-apoptotic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin, the most active component in a pop...

Acrylamide (ACR) is widely used in industries. Oxidative stress and apoptosis pathways are important mechanisms behind ACR-induced hepatotoxicity and neurotoxicity. Regarding to antioxidant and antiapoptotic properties of punicalagin (PUN), the protective effect of this agent on ACR-induced toxicity in rat was evaluated. Rats were divided into seven groups: control, ACR (50 mg/kg/day, i.p.), PUN (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg/day, i.p.) plus ACR, vitamin E (200 mg/kg, i.p.) plus ACR, and PUN groups. Afte...

Diabetic neuropathy (DN) is the most common chronic complication of DM and its major pathological changes show axonal dysfunction, atrophy and loss. However, there are few reports that taurine promotes neurite growth of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells. In current study, DRG neurons were exposed to high glucose (HG) with or without taurine. The neurite outgrowth of DRG neurons was observed by fluorescent immunohistochemistry method. Expression of Gap-43, Akt, phosphorylated Akt, mTOR and phospho...
