Risk Assessment, Interdependencies, and Source Appraisal of Bioaccumulated Heavy and Essential Metals in Seafood as Pollutants
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 10. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03949-w. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTFish as seafood is a bioindicator for chemical substances like trace metals in the water systems that accumulate in fish bodies. Fe and Zn as essential and Pb, Ni, and Cd as heavy metals were quantitatively analyzed in fish muscle samples by an atomic absorption spectrophotometer (Perkin Elmer, Model AAnalyst-700). Fe and Zn's results agreed with the food quality guidelines. Fe was the highest in the range of 2.6-9.4 in mg kg-1. The Zn content indicates the contribution of anthropogenic agents through the food chain. Ni > Pb...

Water-Soluble Se-Containing Proteins from Chicken Alleviate DSS-Induced Ulcerative Colitis in Mice via Inhibiting TLR4/MyD88 Pathway and Protecting the Goblet Cell Pathway
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 11. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03952-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe influence of water-soluble selenium-containing proteins (WSSeP) in chicken on ulcerative colitis (UC) is not known. This work aims to investigate the effect of two WSSeP including h-Se with 1.78 μg Se/g and l-Se with 1.04 μg Se/g on mice UC induced by dextran sodium sulfate (DSS) versus 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA). Seventy C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into seven groups: groups 1 and 7 were given normal saline. Group 2 to group 4 were administrated orally 500, 1500, and 3000 mg/kg/day h-Se, respectively. Group 5 wa...

Binding Chromium(III) to Form Mixed Cr(III),Fe(III) Serum Transferrins
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 9. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03917-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTransferrin, Tf, the protein that transports iron as Fe(III) from the blood to the tissues via endocytosis, is believed to also transport Cr(III). Under physiological conditions, Tf binds and releases Cr(III) rapidly from Cr(III)2-Tf; however, the major form of Tf in the bloodstream is mono-ferric Tf (Fe(III)-Tf). Given the low concentration of Cr(III) in the bloodstream, the form of Cr(III)-containing Tf that is transported is probably monochromic, monoferric-Tf (Cr(III),Fe(III)-Tf). Given that Tf has two specific metal-binding...

Might Diet, APOE-APOA1 Axis, and Iron Metabolism Provide Clues About the Discrepancy in Alzheimer's Disease Occurrence Between Humans and Chimpanzees? A Bioinformatics-Based Re-Analysis of Gene Expression Data on Mice Fed with Human and Chimpanzee Diets
This article analyzes the effects of different human and chimpanzee diets and their link with apolipoproteins, lipid, and iron (Fe) metabolism, starting from available data, to find out any gap in the existing knowledge. By using a system biology approach, we have re-analyzed the liver and brain RNA seq data of mice fed with either human or chimpanzee diet for 2 weeks to look for genetic differences that may explain the differences in AD occurrence between those two classes. In liver samples of mice fed with the chimpanzee diet in comparison to the human diet, apolipoprotein A-1, ceruloplasmin, and 10 other genes were upre...

Heavy Metal Bioaccumulation in Highly Consumed Pelagic and Benthic Fish and Associated Health Risk
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 7. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03943-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe present study investigated the levels of Manganese (Mn), Cadmium (Cd), Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), Lead (Pb) and Iron (Fe) in the tissues of a benthic fish (Clarias gariepinus) and a pelagic fish (Oreochromis niloticus), which are highly consumed in Ghana. The fish were collected from the Weija reservoir, which is an important source of fishery and potable water in Accra, Ghana. The results indicate heavy metal accumulation in all the tissues (gills, liver and muscles) analyzed. The bioaccumulation of all the metals was lowest i...

Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 7. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03945-0. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCandies are frequently consumed sweetened food products among children, and their consumption can expose them to potential toxins and contamination. The present study employed calibration-free-laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (CF-LIBS) as a steadfast diagnostic technique to analyze the presence of nutritional and heavy metals in candies from various brands available in local markets in Haripur, Pakistan. A pulsed Nd-YAG laser was used to create a microplasma on the target surface. The emitted light was collected using a dedi...

Selenoneine Is Methylated in the Bodies of Mice and then Excreted in Urine as Se-Methylselenoneine
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2023 Nov 7. doi: 10.1007/s12011-023-03936-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOral intake of purified selenoneine and seafoods has been reported to result in selenoneine accumulation in erythrocytes in mice and human. In addition, Se-methylselenoneine was suggested to be produced as a metabolite of selenoneine in the urine and whole blood of humans. In order to confirm the molecular mechanism of production of Se-methylselenoneine, a stable isotope (Se-76) labeled selenoneine was biosynthesized using genetically modified fission yeast and administered to mice. The Se-76-labeled Se-methylselenoneine was det...
