Cottonseed meal fermented by Candida tropical reduces the fat deposition in white-feather broilers through cecum bacteria-host metabolic cross-talk.

Cottonseed meal fermented by Candida tropical reduces the fat deposition in white-feather broilers through cecum bacteria-host metabolic cross-talk. Appl Microbiol Biotechnol. 2020 Mar 30;: Authors: Niu J, Zhang J, Wei L, Ma X, Zhang W, Nie C Abstract In the present study, effects of cottonseed meal fermented by Candida tropicalis (FCSM) on fat deposition, cecum microbiota, and metabolites and their interactions were studied in broilers. A total of 180 1-day-old broilers were randomly assigned into two groups with six replicates of 15 birds in each. The birds were offered two diets consisted one control, i.e., supplemented with 0% FCSM (CON) and an experimental, with 6% FCSM (FCSM). Illumina MiSeq sequencing and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry were used to investigate the profile changes of the cecum microbes and metabolites and the interactions among fat deposition, microbes, and metabolites. Results showed that at the age of 21 days, both the abdominal fat and subcutaneous fat thickness of the experimental birds decreased significantly (P

Abstract Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of man-made organic substances. Some of PFASs have been classified as persistent organic pollutants and endocrine disruptors. They might interfere with the male sex endocrine system, causing the abnormal development of the male reproductive tract and failure of pubertal onset and infertility. The present review discusses the development and function of two generations of Leydig cells in rodents and the effects of PFASs on Leydig cell development after their exposure in gestational and postnatal periods. We also discuss human epidemiological data for the effect...

In this study, the S-PACs and their parent PACs were tested for the adsorption of three aromatic compounds-2-phenylphenol, biphenyl, and phenanthrene-with and without the presence of natural organic matter (NOM). Adsorption rates were increased for adsorption onto S-PAC as compared to PAC in all trials without NOM and in most trials with NOM. Faster adsorption onto S-PAC was found to be a result of a smaller particle size, lower surface oxygen content, larger pore diameters, and neutral pHPZC. Adsorption of a planar compound, phenanthrene, increased the most between PAC and S-PAC, while adsorption of 2-phenylphenol, a nonp...

Abstract Nitrate pollution presents a serious threat to the environment and public health. As an excellent heterotrophic denitrification carbon source, banana peel (a kind of agricultural waste) provides a feasible alternative to deal with the persistent high concentrations of nitrate pollution. Although the feasibility and economy of banana peel for denitrification have already been reported, the long-term stability and mechanism were still unclear. The coupling mechanism of organic matters and microorganism in the denitrification process was systematically investigated through a 17-cycle experiment. The results ...

Abstract Herein, the potential of bimetallic MOFs in catalytic ozonation was investigated for the first time. Three novel ozonation catalysts, i.e. cobalt-based, nickel-based and cobalt/nickel-based metal-organic frameworks (Co-MOF, Ni-MOF and Co/Ni-MOF), were synthesized, characterized by XRD, SEM, N2 sorption-desorption isotherms, FTIR and XPS, and applied in catalytic ozonation for atrazine removal. It was found that the catalysts showed outstanding performance in the catalytic ozonation, especially Co/Ni-MOF which was attributed to multiple metal sites, higher coordination unsaturation, metal centers with larg...

M, León VM Abstract The occurrence of bioactive compounds and contaminant-associated effects was assessed by means of in vivo and in vitro assays using different extractable fractions of surface sediments from a contaminated coastal lagoon (Mar Menor, SE Spain). Sediment elutriates and clean seawater, previously exposed to whole sediment, were used for assessing the in vivo toxicity on embryo development of the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus. Agonist and antagonist activities relating to estrogen and androgen receptors and agonist activities on aryl hydrocarbon receptor (expressed as ethoxy...

Abstract Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) formation and inhibition from supercritical water gasification (SCWG) of cyanobacterial biomass were investigated. High reaction temperature, long residence time, and low feedstock concentration favoured higher molecular weight (HMW) PAH formation. The total PAH yield reached 34.80 μg g-1 at 500 °C, 22.5 MPa, and 10 min. The main PAHs formed in the liquid phase and the solid residue were 3-ring and 4-ring PAHs, which were generated from the cycloaddition reaction of lower molecular weight (LMW) PAHs. In addition, 2-ring PAHs were prod...

This study was carried out in accordance with the recommendations of the ethics standards defined by the EU legislation on the use of experimental animals (2010/63/EU) and Czech animal welfare act. The protocol was approved by the Institute of Microbiology animal care and use committee (approval ID: 85/2015 and 108/2016). Diets and Experimental Design In most experiments, shortly after weaning, the mice were switched either to animal protein-based diet—control (aCD, 176 g/kg crude protein; Cat# C1000) and high-protein diet (aHPD, 514 g/kg crude protein; Cat# C1001) or plant protein-based diet—control (pCD, 17...
