Influence of genetic substructuring of statistical forensic parameters on genetic short tandem repeat markers in the populations of Southeastern Europe
CONCLUSION: The comparison of forensic parameters between different subpopulations of Croatia and Southeast Europe indicates that the isolation of individual Croatian subpopulations and rare alleles in their gene pool affect the values of forensic parameters. Specific features of (sub)populations should be taken into account for appropriate sampling of the total population when creating a DNA database of STR markers.PMID:35722693 | PMC:PMC9284013 | DOI:10.3325/cmj.2022.63.244 (Source: Croatian Medical Journal)

A bioarcheological contribution to the social history of Roman Macedonia: The Pontokomi ‐Vrysi site in Kozani Prefecture, Greece
AbstractRoman Macedonia has been largely neglected by bioarcheological research. As a result, little is known about the imprint of living conditions of that time on the skeletons of its inhabitants, especially those of the lower classes. This paper presents the paleopathological study conducted on a Roman period (1st –4th c. CE) skeletal assemblage from Pontokomi-Vrysi, a site in the semi-mountainous region of Eordaea in Upper Macedonia (now in Kozani Prefecture, Greece). The aim is to investigate differences in the frequency of multiple paleopathological conditions in the buried population and to assess whet her these ...

This paper presents the palaeopathological study conducted on a Roman period (1st-4th c. CE) skeletal assemblage from Pontokomi-Vrysi in Kozani Prefecture, Greece. The aim was to investigate differences in the frequency of multiple palaeopathological conditions among males, females, and nonadults, and to assess whether these were be linked to sex- or age-related differences in a community...

Volatile Constituents of Some Selected Plant Species Traditionally Used as Tea in the Sharri Mountains (Kosovo)
ScientificWorldJournal. 2022 May 16;2022:2594195. doi: 10.1155/2022/2594195. eCollection 2022.ABSTRACTThe study evaluates the chemical composition of the volatile constituents of ten plant species traditionally used as herbal tea in the Sharri Mountain regions (Kosovo and North Macedonia). Volatile constituents responsible for the flavour and fragrance of selected species (Crataegus monogyna, Cydonia oblonga, Malus sylvestris, Matricaria chamomilla, Morus alba, Morus nigra, Rosa canina, Sambucus nigra, Tilia cordata, and Vaccinium myrtillus) were separated and then identified using GC-MS, whereas GC-FID is employed for the...

Assessment of distribution and diversity of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in the most prevalent Boraginaceae species in Macedonia
Chem Biodivers. 2022 May 17. doi: 10.1002/cbdv.202200066. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSystematic study of extraction efficiency of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) and corresponding pyrrolizidine alkaloid N -oxides (PANOs) from plant material for subsequent LC-MS analysis was carried out. The optimal extraction was achieved with methanol and one clean up step using SPE C18 column. With the optimized LC-ESI-MS/MS method using ion trap, the distribution and diversity of PAs and PANOs in plant material (leaves, flowers and stems) obtained from wild-growing E. vulgare , E. italicum , S. officinale L., C. creticum and O. heterop...

(Apiaceae) is a species occurring in the Balkan-Tyrrhenian area being present in Crete, Greece, Albania, and probably in Macedonia. Although the western disjointed population of Sicily has been classified as an endemic sub-species, F. nodosa subsp. geniculata (Guss.) Troia & Raimondo, it is not officially accepted. From the aerial parts of the Sicilian accession of this species four known metabolites (1-4), and a new ferulol derivative (5), were isolated and characterized. The structure of the ne...

Prevalence of keratoconus in refractive surgery practice population in North Macedonia
ConclusionThe prevalence of KC at a refractive surgery practice in N. Macedonia is much higher compared with general population (6.8/100,000) and similar to the prevalence in Middle East Asia. Nationwide screening programs are needed to diagnose the disease earlier. (Source: International Ophthalmology)

Alchemilla viridiflora Rothm.: the potent natural inhibitor of angiotensin I-converting enzyme
Mol Cell Biochem. 2022 Mar 29. doi: 10.1007/s11010-022-04410-7. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlchemilla viridiflora Rothm., Rosaceae is a herbaceous plant widespread in central Greece, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Serbia with Kosovo. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis leads to the identification of 20 compounds in methanol extract, mainly ellagitannins and flavonoid glycosides. Given that various plant extracts have traditionally been used to treat hypertension and that some of the analyzed methanol extract constituents have beneficial cardiovascular effects, we hypothesized that some of these effects are a...
