Effects of Inorganic Arsenic, Methylated Arsenicals, and Arsenobetaine on Atherosclerosis in the apoE-/- Mouse Model and the Role of As3mt-Mediated Methylation

Conclusion: Taken together, our findings indicate that As3MT acts to promote cardiovascular toxicity of arsenic and suggest that human AS3MT SNPs that correlate with enzyme function could predict those most at risk to develop atherosclerosis among the millions that are exposed to arsenic. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP806 Received: 15 July 2016 Revised: 21 December 2016 Accepted: 21 December 2016 Published: 05 July 2017 Correspondence: K.K.

In this study we tried to explore Diazepam as a repurposed drug and tested it in Neuroblastoma (Neuro 2a) cells. Diazepam loaded Poly Lactic Acid Nanoparticles were developed (D-PLA-NPs) using nanoprecipitation method. Entrapment efficiency was found to be ± 99.7% and drug loading was ± 12.88%. The particle size developed was 188.8 nm and zeta potential was −25.6 millivolt. Dissolution profiles were studied in PBS (pH 7.4) or simulated media, almost 50% release was observed within 6 h. In vitro, cytotoxicity was analyzed using MTT assay where dose-dependent cytotoxicity was observed for developed D-PLA-NPs.

In this study, we present the effect of doping of sodium (Na) in nickel oxide nanocrystals synthesized using the co-precipitation method. The samples are characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and analyzed further with the help of Raman and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic data. The XRD peaks, calculated crystallite size, dislocation density, strain and FTIR and Raman spectroscopic data is compared for the samples with the different doping concentrations. The crystal growth is explained on the basis of the recorded data. The experimental data is in good agreement mutually and, with the earlier reports.

Publication date: Available online 22 February 2020Source: Journal of Membrane ScienceAuthor(s): Gui Min Shi, Tai-Shung ChungAbstractWe have successfully developed novel Teflon AF2400/polyethylene (PE) membranes for organic solvent nanofiltration (OSN) by depositing an ultra-thin Teflon AF2400 membrane on top of a commercially available PE porous support. By adjusting the coating concentration and the relative humidity (RH) of drying air, a Teflon AF2400 layer of ∼100 nm was deposited on the PE support. The newly developed membrane has a very low MWCO of ∼150 g/mol and shows high pure solvent permeances of 3&nd...

El-dek, Vuk UskokovićAbstractElectrospun selenium-containing carbonated hydroxyapatite/polycaprolactone (CHAP/PCL) core/shell nanofibers were synthesized at different contents of Rb+ as a dopant in the ceramic phase. Microstructural, morphological and mechanical properties of the nanofibers were analyzed as a function of the stoichiometric content of Rb+ ions defined by the parameter x in [RbxCa(10-0.5x)(PO4)5.8(SeO3)0.2(OH)2]/PCL (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.8). Rb+ ions were ...

Conventional synthetic procedures such as solvothermal synthesis and co-precipitation usually involve tedious processes and large consumption of organic solvents. Herein, a facile mechanochemical-assisted strategy was utilized to develop highly efficient HER electrocatalysts with well-dispersed single-phase pyrite-type...

Since, chloroplast generates sugar by the reduction of CO2 with the optical stimulation through a series of electron transport chain and GO being the 2D material with electron transport property, it is reasonable to check their interaction. Here, the effect of GO without and with amine conjugation (AGO) having opposite charges were...

However, when this balance is impaired, oxidative stress develops due to imbalanced redox homeostasis resulting in cellular damage. Oxidative stress is now recognized as a trigger of cellular se...
