Based on quantitative immunoblot analyses, in both groups a reduction of two key regulators of mitochondrial biogenesis/remodeling and activity, namely PGC-1α and Sirt3, was revealed during bed-rest, with a subsequent up-regulation after rehabilitation, indicating an involvement of PGC-1α-Sirt3 axis in response to the treatments. A difference was observed...

Sharma, Shailendra Kumar AryaAbstractA laccase producing new bacterial strain (Alcaligenes faecalis XF1) was isolated from green site of Chandigarh (India) by standard screening method. Nutrient broth medium containing 0.2 mM CuSO4 was used for the production of laccase. Maximum production (110 U/ml) was achieved after four days of incubation. The extracellular laccase from the medium was purified by simple salt precipitation and ion exchange technique to get 3.8 fold purified protein with 1637.8 U/mg spec...

In this study, four different weight% of Punica granatum fruit peel extract were used as green stabilizers to synthesize IONPs followed by a series of characterization experiments and in vitro anticancer evaluation. Results revealed that all synthesized IONPs have high degree of crystallinity and purity. The optimum saturation magnetization, and hydrodynamic size were found to be ∼69 emu.g−1, and 26.52 nm, respectively. Morphological studies demonstrated that adding peel extract decreased size of NPs with the average particle size below 11 nm. Cytotoxicity assay showed that the IONPs were not react...

Infra-Red Multiple Photon Dissociation (IRMPD) spectra of the two diastereomer sodium-core dimers, namely, LmtLiptNa+ and LmtDiptNa+, are identical in the fingerprint region but show a slight difference in the OH stretch region. Comparison to ab i...

In this study, two groups (4% PHB supplementation diets and control with basal diets) with 30-day feeding were set to study the effect of PHB supplementation on immune-related gene expression by qRT-PCR, time-course CyHV-2 replication in vivo by qPCR and intestinal microbiota by illumine high-throughput sequencing. PHB supplementation significantly up-regulated transcriptional levels of eight immune-related genes, decreased cumulative mortality of gibel carp and early CyHV-2 replication in spleen in vivo (P

The molecular weight of the pea pectin preparation was 488,000, with 50% arabinose content, and neutral sugar side chains attached to approximately 60% of the rhamnose residues in rhamnogalacturonan-I (RG-I). Arabinan, an RG-I side chain, was highly branched, and the main chain was comprised of α-1,5-l-arabinan. Gala...

In this study, a PET camera was used to examine individual differences in the D2 system in a group consisting of 181 healthy individuals between the age of 64 and 68. All participants also had to take part in an all-inclusive performance test of the long-term episodic memory, working memory and processing speed along with an MRI assessment (which was used to measure the size of various parts of the brain). Researchers could see that the D2 system was positively linked to episodic memory, but not to working memory or to processing speed by relating PET registrations to the cognitive data. Researchers could also see that the...
