Subchronic Exposure to Mixture of Cadmium, Copper, and Nickel Induces Neurobehavioral Deficits and Hippocampal Oxidative Stress of Wistar Rats
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Apr 5. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04166-9. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe present study was aimed at evaluating the influence of the subchronic exposure of cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), and nickel (Ni) mixtures on affective behaviors, memory impairment, and oxidative stress (OS) in the hippocampus. Thirty male Wistar rats were divided into 5 equal groups. Group 1 (control) received a saline solution (NaCl 0.9%). Groups 2, 3, and 4 received Cd (0.25 mg/kg), Cu (0.5 mg/kg), and Ni (0.25 mg/kg), respectively, while group 5 received a Cd, Cu, and Ni mixture through intraperitoneal injections for 2 months...

Activation of ERK/NF-kB Pathways Contributes to the Inflammatory Response in Epithelial Cells and Macrophages Following Manganese Exposure
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Apr 6. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04154-z. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDifferent types of metals, including manganese (Mn), are constantly encountered in various environmental matrices due to natural and anthropogenic activities. They induce a sustained inflammatory response in various organs, which is considered to be an important priming event in the pathogenesis of several diseases. Mn-induced neuroinflammation and subsequent neurodegeneration are well recognized. However, emerging data suggest that occupationally and environmentally relevant levels may affect various organs, including the lungs...

Toxicity of REEs, Th, and U: A Biodisponibility, Cytotoxicity, and Bioaccumulation Assessment in Marine Sediment
Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Apr 3. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04160-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn this work, bioaccessibility tests for rare earth elements (REEs), Th, and U in marine sediment were carried out, in addition to complementary tests for cytotoxicity and bioaccumulation for the elements La, Ce, Eu, and Gd. The evaluation of human health risk through dermal absorption and oral ingestion was performed using the hazard quotient (HQ). According to the gastric digestion simulation (SBET), it was observed that the elements Ce and Nd exhibited higher absorption capacities in the human body (> 2 µg g-1). La and Sc...

Investigation of accumulation of element contents in some wild and cultivated dried fruits
In this study, the moisture and biogenic element quantities of most wild and cultivated edible dried fruits were investigated. Macroelements found in highest amounts in fruits were K, P, Ca, and Mg. While K quantities of the fruits are recorded between 5212.77 ("white myrtle") and 25550.60 mg/kg ("black nightshade"), P amounts of the fruits were characterized to be between 949.08 (black myrtle) and 4420.75 mg/kg ("black nightshade"). Ca and Mg amounts of the fruits were assessed to be between 359.83 (plum) and 4330.89 mg/kg ("yellow hawthorn") to 214.98 (plum) and 1852.04 mg/kg ("black nightshade"), respectively. Fe and B ...

Protective Effect of Selenium-enriched Peptide from Cardamine violifolia on Ethanol-induced L-02 Hepatocyte Injury
In this study, we investigated the protective effect of selenium (Se)-enriched peptide isolated from Cardamine violifolia (SPE) against ethanol-induced liver injury. Cell proliferation assays show that different concentrations of SPE protect human embryonic liver L-02 cells against ethanol-induced injury in a dose-dependent manner. Treatment with 12 μmol/L Se increases the cell survival rate (82.44%) and reduces the release of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase, and apoptosis rate. SPE treatment with 12 μmol/L Se effectively reduces the concentration of intracellular reactive oxygen s...

Biol Trace Elem Res. 2024 Mar 28. doi: 10.1007/s12011-024-04156-x. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLong-term exposure to lead is associated with an increased risk of diabetic kidney disease (DKD). However, limited data exist on global trends in DKD burden attributable to lead exposure, especially across diverse regions categorized by socioeconomic level. We aimed to assess the spatiotemporal changes in DKD burden attributable to lead exposure from 1990 to 2019 across 204 countries and regions with varying socio-demographic index (SDI) metrics. This retrospective analysis utilized data from the Global Burden of Disease Study ...
