wska Phospholipids containing PUFAs are important vehicles for their delivering to the targeted tissues. In our research project we established enzymatic methods for the enrichment of natural egg-yolk PC with n-3 PUFAs. Instead of synthetic PUFA ethyl esters, the new strategy was developed using polyunsaturated fatty acids enriched fraction (PUFA-EF) from cod liver oil as the natural acyl donors. PUFA-EF was produced by urea-complexation and contained 86.9% PUFA including 8.5% stearidonic acid (SDA; 18:4(n-3)), 26.7% EPA, and 45.2% DHA. The transesterification of PC with PUFA was catalyzed by lipases. After screening o...

In this study, we have screened additional inducers of mammalian apoptosis and identified BH3I‐1, as well as several structural derivatives of BH3I‐1, that act as specific inhibitors of morphogenesis under a variety of environmental conditions. Chemical epistasis experiments suggest that BH3I‐1 acts downstream of the hypha‐specific gene regulators Rfg1, Nrg1 and Ume6.

Publication date: 1 February 2018 Source:Materials Letters, Volume 212 Author(s): Ivana Malagurski, Steva Levic, Miodrag Mitric, Vladimir Pavlovic, Suzana Dimitrijevic-Brankovic Two bimetallic (Zn/Cu) alginate based nanocomposites, impregnated with carbonate or phosphate mineral phase, were prepared by a facile procedure. Mineralized samples exhibited different morphologies and properties when compared to the non-mineralized sample. Antimicrobial testing against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans showed that mineralized samples are more efficient than non-mineralized in elimination of microorgani...

This study evaluates the behavior of Saccharomyces (S.) cerevisiae (CCMA 0543), Candida (C.) parapsilosis (CCMA 0544), and Torulaspora (T.) delbrueckii (CCMA 0684) as starter cultures for semi-dry processed coffee using two inoculation methods: (1) direct inoculation and (2) bucket inoculation. The microbial population was evaluated by plating and real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). The microbial metabolic changes of both bucket and direct inoculation methods during fermentation were evaluated using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS). A sensor...

In this study, we examine trikingdom interactions using a transparent juvenile zebrafish to model mucosal lung infection and show that C. albicans and P. aeruginosa are synergistically virulent. We find that high C. albicans burden, fungal epithelial invasion, swimbladder edema, and epithelial extrusion events serve as predictive factors for mortality in our infection model. Longitudinal analyses of fungal, bacterial, and immune dynamics during coinfection suggest that enhanced morbidity is associated with exacerbated C. albicans pathogenesis and elevated inflammation. The P. aeruginosa quorum-sensing-deficient lasR mutant...

Conclusions: Conclusions:Antifungal prevention of systemic candidiasis in immunocompetent critically ill adults did not reduce mortality and may have decreased secondary fungal infection rates. However, significant publication bias was present.
