Autism spectrum disorder and mercury toxicity: use of genomic and epigenetic methods to solve the etiologic puzzle

developing, which has led to the creation of new methods and tools that can be applied to investigate heritable conditions and diseases. These methods and tools are particularly well suited for seeking genetic predispositions to toxicity from exposures and adverse manifestations of those exposures, such as mercury and ASD. In the present paper, we examine the evidence linking ASD with mercury toxicity. We present a plausible etiologic mechanism of ASD causation, consisting of prenatal mercury exposure

MECHANISMS OF ARSENIC TOXICITY AND TRANSPORT IN MICROORGANISMS

Arsenic is an ubiquitous element present in the environment either through geological or anthropogenic activities. Millions of people all over the world are exposed to arsenic mainly via air, drinking water and food sources, which results in higher incidence of cancer. Several mechanisms by which arsenic compounds induce tumorigenesis have been proposed. Arsenic mediates its toxicity by generating oxidative stress, inducing protein misfolding, promoting genotoxicity, hampering DNA repair and

Meanwhile, it turns out that washings from swimming pool filters may impact the selected indicators including a varied group of organisms: bacteria, crustaceans, insect larvae and vascular plants [6–9]. The toxicity effect differed depending on both the used type of biotest and the type of swimming pool from that the sample of filter backwash water was collected (Table 1). Table 1.

EVALUATION OF QUALITY OF BOTTOM SEDIMENTS OF WATER RESERVOIR PORAJ BY APPLYING SEDIMENT QUALITY GUIDELINES AND SPIATAL ANALYSIS

on the bottom of water reservoirs may contain significant loads of organic (e.g. PAH, pesticides) and inorganic (e.g. trace elements) pollutants, which accumulate in sediments and may subsequently pose a threat to water quality due to remobilisation. A feature of these compounds is that they can remain active for a long period of time and constitute a secondary source of water contamination [6]. Modern studies on trace elements in bottom sediments are often related to ecological risk, toxicity

TAXONOMY, VIRULENCE AND LIFE CYCLES OF BACILLUS CEREUS SENSU LATO

Bacillus cereus sensu lato is a group of several species of Gram-positive sporeformers ubiquitous in nature and showing huge impact on human activities. They are often found in soil, air, plant material, animal tissues and digestive tracts as well as in food products. Their genetic similarities and frequent horizontal gene transfer causes doubts regarding their taxonomy. In addition, their toxicity and psychrotolerance constitute serious problems in the dairy industry, being responsible for

action (MoA). These properties of the SGAEDs lead to a re-evaluation of the polytherapy strategy and to new methods of choosing a second (or more) AED. This new approach was called rational polytherapy (RP) (Ferrendelli, 1995; Anonimous, 1995). In essence, RP consists of selecting combinations of AEDs that result in a greater clinical efficacy (additive or synergistic effect) compared to the one obtained by chance, but with additive or even infraadditive, toxicity. In other words, RP was defined as

The percentage of inhibition of bioluminescence compared to the control sample (bacteria not exposed to a potential toxicant) was measured after 5 and 15 minutes of exposure. The results were evaluated based on the toxicity classification [12, 13]. Before the test commenced, the concentration of free chlorine in the samples was measured again. Presence of free fluoride may have a significantly influence on the increased toxicity of the samples

last step of penicillin G biosynthesis is located in peroxisomes where the PA is coupled to 6-aminopenicillanic acid. It suggests that the penicillin G biosynthesis is a cytosol detoxification process. It was also suggested that the large peroxisomes abundantly arranged at the periphery of the cytoplasm (Fig. 2C) seem to build a PA-barrier protecting the hyphal cells from the toxicity of the precursor of penicillin G biosynthesis [15, 16]. Based on electron microscopy and biochemical data, there

The goal of medical management is to increase the platelet count to a safe level, without the risks of bacterial infections associated with splenectomy or toxicity from prolonged corticosteroid therapy. Splenectomy increases platelet counts in hours to days in most patients with acute ITP, but nearly 50 percent experience

enzymes, indicating a severe oxidative stress. The elevated brain mitochondrial enzymes like NADH dehydrogenase, and succinate dehydrogenase in the disease control groups, reversed to the near control level after nicorandil treatment. We observed that nicorandil was more effective when given after calcification. It reduced the biochemical alterations associated with calcium and phosphorous toxicity in the brain, by preserving mitochondria, the key target for treating neurodegenerative diseases.

Based on our review, we found that food-drug interactions may alter the expected impact of drug, or cause the development of a drug toxicity. Nutritional status of the patients may also be affected, particularly a change in body weight caused by a change appetite. Metabolism, absorption, and excretion of foods may also be altered, and nutritional

Early cadmium exposure during the neonatal stage affects the more vulnerable CNS

The Emergence of Different Functionally Equivalent PAH Degrading Microbial Communities from a Single Soil in Liquid PAH Enrichment Cultures and Soil Microcosms Receiving PAHs with and without Bioaugmentation

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) are common soil contaminants of concern due to their toxicity toward plants, animals and microorganisms. The use of indigenous or added microbes (bioaugmentation) is commonly used for bioremediation of PAHs. In this work, the biodegradation rates and changes in the bacterial community structure were evaluated. The enrichment culture was useful for unambiguously identifying members of the soil bacterial community associated with PAH degradation and yielded

The role of cannabinoids and endocannabinoid system in the treatment of epilepsy

Introduction. The treatment of epilepsy is still a major challenge. Despite the introduction of many new antiepileptic drugs, approximately 30% of patients still remain drug resistant. In the absence of a satisfactory therapy outcome, which is sometimes associated with numerous side effects, there is a need for new and effective drugs with low toxicity. Cannabinoids have been shown in preliminary animal model studies and in studies of patients with epilepsy to have antiepileptic activity. Aim
