Inhibition of myosin ATPase by metal fluoride complexes. (1/348)

Magnesium (Mg2+) is the physiological divalent cation stabilizing nucleotide or nucleotide analog in the active site of myosin subfragment 1 (S1). In the presence of fluoride, Mg2+ and MgADP form a complex that traps the active site of S1 and inhibits myosin ATPase. The ATPase inactivation rate of the magnesium trapped S1 is comparable but smaller than the other known gamma-phosphate analogs at 1.2 M-1 s-1 with 1 mM MgCl2. The observed molar ratio of Mg/S1 in this complex of 1.58 suggests that magnesium occupies the gamma-phosphate position in the ATP binding site of S1 (S1-MgADP-MgFx). The stability of S1-MgADP-MgFx at 4 degrees C was studied by EDTA chase experiments but decomposition was not observed. However, removal of excess fluoride causes full recovery of the K+-EDTA ATPase activity indicating that free fluoride is necessary for maintaining a stable trap and suggesting that the magnesium fluoride complex is bonded to the bridging oxygen of beta-phosphate more loosely than the other known phosphate analogs. The structure of S1 in S1-MgADP-MgFx was studied with near ultraviolet circular dichroism, total tryptophan fluorescence, and tryptophan residue 510 quenching measurements. These data suggest that S1-MgADP-MgFx resembles the M**.ADP.Pi steady-state intermediate of myosin ATPase. Gallium fluoride was found to compete with MgFx for the gamma-phosphate site in S1-MgADP-MgFx. The ionic radius and coordination geometry of magnesium, gallium and other known gamma-phosphate analogs were compared and identified as important in determining which myosin ATPase intermediate the analog mimics.  (+info)

Ligand-dependent conformational equilibria of serum albumin revealed by tryptophan fluorescence quenching. (2/348)

Ligand-dependent structural changes in serum albumin are suggested to underlie its role in physiological solute transport and receptor-mediated cellular selection. Evidence of ligand-induced (oleic acid) structural changes in serum albumin are shown in both time-resolved and steady-state fluorescence quenching and anisotropy measurements of tryptophan 214 (Trp214). These studies were augmented with column chromatography separations. It was found that both the steady-state and time-resolved Stern-Volmer collisional quenching studies of Trp214 with acrylamide pointed to the existence of an oleate-dependent structural transformation. The bimolecular quenching rate constant of defatted human serum albumin, 1.96 x 10(9) M-1 s-1, decreased to 0.94 x 10(9) M-1 s-1 after incubation with oleic acid (9:1). Furthermore, Stern-Volmer quenching studies following fractionation of the structural forms by hydrophobic interaction chromatography were in accordance with this interpretation. Time-resolved fluorescence anisotropy measurements of the Trp214 residue yielded information of motion within the protein together with the whole protein molecule. Characteristic changes in these motions were observed after the binding of oleate to albumin. The addition of oleate was accompanied by an increase in the rotational diffusion time of the albumin molecule from approximately 22 to 33.6 ns. Within the body of the protein, however, the rotational diffusion time for Trp214 exhibited a slight decrease from 191 to 182 ps and was accompanied by a decrease in the extent of the angular motion of Trp214, indicating a transition after oleate binding to a more spatially restricted but less viscous environment.  (+info)

Resolution and characterization of tryptophyl fluorescence of hen egg-white lysozyme by quenching- and time-resolved spectroscopy. (3/348)

The fluorescence spectral distributions of four tryptophan residues of hen egg-white lysozyme were analyzed using time-resolved and quenching-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. Trp62 and Trp108 gave the fluorescence maxima at 352 nm and 342 nm, respectively. The fluorescence of Trp28 and Trp111 occurred only at 300-360 nm and they were observed as an unresolved emission band with a maximum and shoulder at 320 nm and 330 nm. The fluorescence quenching and decay parameters of each tryptophan residue reconfirmed that Trp62 was fully exposed to the solvent but Trp108 was sealed in the cage of the peptide chains and furthermore showed that Trp28 and Trp111 are under the influence of the larger fluctuational motion at the hydrophobic matrix box. The fluorescence responses of each tryptophan residue to the lysozyme-ligand interaction suggested that the internal fluctuation was reduced by the binding of ligand to give a distorted conformation to the hydrophobic matrix box region.  (+info)

Molecular cloning and expression of adenosine kinase from Leishmania donovani: identification of unconventional P-loop motif. (4/348)

The unique catalytic characteristics of adenosine kinase (Adk) and its stage-specific differential activity pattern have made this enzyme a prospective target for chemotherapeutic manipulation in the purine-auxotrophic parasitic protozoan Leishmania donovani. However, nothing is known about the structure of the parasite Adk. We report here the cloning of its gene and the characterization of the gene product. The encoded protein, consisting of 345 amino acid residues with a calculated molecular mass of 37173 Da, shares limited but significant similarity with sugar kinases and inosine-guanosine kinase of microbial origin, supporting the notion that these enzymes might have the same ancestral origin. The identity of the parasite enzyme with the corresponding enzyme from two other sources so far described was only 40%. Furthermore, 5' RNA mapping studies indicated that the Adk gene transcript is matured post-transcriptionally with the trans-splicing of the mini-exon (spliced leader) occurring at nt -160 from the predicted translation initiation site. The biochemical properties of the recombinant enzyme were similar to those of the enzyme isolated from leishmanial cells. The intrinsic tryptophan fluorescence of the enzyme was substrate-sensitive. On the basis of a multiple protein-alignment sequence comparison and ATP-induced fluorescence quenching in the presence or the absence of KI and acrylamide, the docking site for ATP has been provisionally identified and shown to have marked divergence from the consensus P-loop motif reported for ATP- or GTP-binding proteins from other sources.  (+info)

Changes in thyroid gland morphology after acute acrylamide exposure. (5/348)

High exposure to the acrylamide monomer has been associated with neuropathy and neurotoxic effects. Chronic lower exposure causes endocrine disruption associated with thyroid, testicular, and mammary tumors. To investigate mechanisms of endocrine disruption, short-term, low-level oral dosing studies were conducted. Weanling female Fischer 344 rats were acclimatized for two weeks before dosing. Controls were given distilled water by gavage and rats in other groups were given acrylamide at doses of 2 mg/kg/day and 15 mg/kg/day for 2 or 7 days by gavage. Twenty-four h after the last dose, the rats were killed by decapitation. Trunk blood was collected for hormone analyses and tissues for histopathological examination. There were no toxicity-related deaths, no clinical signs of toxicity, and no significant difference in the mean body weight of animal groups. Histopathological examination of select tissues showed no lesions of pathologic significance. Plasma thyroxine (T4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), prolactin (PRL), and pituitary TSH and PRL analyses did not reveal significant changes between control vs. treated rats. In the 7-day study, however, there was a slight dose-dependent increase in plasma T4 and a slight dose-dependent decrease in plasma TSH. Thyroid gland morphometry showed a significant (p < 0.05) decrease in the colloid area and a significant increase (p < 0.05) in the follicular cell height of treated rats as compared to controls. The follicular area shrinkage was similar in both studies. These results show a very early endocrine response to very low levels of toxic insult and opens other venues to further investigate the mechanisms of endocrine disruption by acrylamide.  (+info)

Detection of aneuploidy by multicolor FISH in mouse sperm after in vivo treatment with acrylamide, colchicine, diazepam or thiabendazole. (6/348)

Multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was used to investigate the induction of aneuploidy during meiosis in young adult male mice treated with chemicals chosen for the EU sponsored aneuploidy project (acrylamide, colchicine, diazepam and thiabendazole). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the frequency of aneuploid sperm induced by each of these chemicals by sperm FISH. Male (102/ElxC3H/El)F1 mice were treated with acrylamide (120 and 60 mg/kg single dose i.p.), colchicine (1.5 and 3 mg/kg single dose, i.p.), diazepam (300, 150 and 75 mg/kg single dose by oral intubation) or thiabendazole (100 and 300 mg/kg daily for 11 days by oral intubation). At 22 days after the last treatment, sperm were collected from the cauda epididymis. Three chromosome FISH was applied to determine hyperhaploid and diploid sperm with DNA probes specific for the chromosomes X, Y and 8. Five animals were treated per dose group and sperm aneuploidy was evaluated in 10,000 sperm per animal. We found significant increases in the frequency of total hyperhaploidy for the males treated with 3.0 mg/kg colchicine (0.092 versus 0.056%, P < 0.05) and with 1.5 mg/kg colchicine (0.082 versus 0.050%, P < 0.05), as well for the males treated with 300 mg/kg diazepam (0.081 versus 0.050%, P < 0.05), indicating that colchicine and diazepam each induced germ cell aneuploidy. We also found significant increases in the frequency of total diploidy for the males treated with 300 mg/kg diazepam (P < 0.05) and with 300 mg/kg thiabendazole (P < 0.05). No significant effects were found for 120 and 60 mg/kg acrylamide or for the other doses of diazepam and thiabendazole. These first results indicate that the multicolor FISH method is useful to determine aneuploidy induction in sperm of mice.  (+info)

Effect of acrylamide on aldolase structure. I. Induction of intermediate states. (7/348)

Acrylamide is a fluorescence quencher frequently applied for analysis of protein fluorophores exposure with the silent assumption that it does not affect the native structure of protein. In this report, it is shown that quenching of tryptophan residues in aldolase is a time-dependent process. The Stern-Volmer constant increases from 1.32 to 2.01 M-1 during the first 100 s of incubation of aldolase with acrylamide. Two tryptophan residues/subunit are accessible to quenching after 100 s of aldolase interaction with acrylamide. Up to about 1.2 M acrylamide concentration enzyme inactivation is reversible. Independent analyses of the changes of enzyme activity, 1ANS fluorescence during its displacement from aldolase active-site, UV-difference spectra and near-UV CD spectra were carried out to monitor the transition of aldolase structure. From these measurements a stepwise transformation of aldolase molecules from native state (N) through intermediates: I1, T, I2, to denatured (D) state is concluded. The maxima of I1, T, I2 and D states populations occur at 0.2, 1.0, 2.0 and above 3.0 M of acrylamide concentration, respectively. Above 3.5 M, acrylamide aldolase molecules become irreversibly inactivated.  (+info)

Effect of acrylamide on aldolase structure. II. Characterization of aldolase unfolding intermediates. (8/348)

Molecules of muscle aldolase A exposed to acrylamide change their conformation via I1, T, I2, D intermediates [1] and undergo a slow irreversible chemical modification of thiol groups. There is no direct correlation between activity loss and thiol groups modification. In the native enzyme two classes of Trp residues of 1. 8 ns and 4.9 ns fluorescence lifetime have been found. Acrylamide (0. 2-0.5 M) increases lifetime of longer-lived component, yet the transfer of aldolase molecules even from higher (1.0 M) perturbant concentration to a buffer, allows regain original Trp fluorescence lifetime. I1, detected at about 0.2 M acrylamide, represents low populated tetramers of preserved enzyme activity. T, of maximum population at about 0.7-1.0 M acrylamide, consists of meta-stable tetramers of partial enzymatic activity. These molecules are able to exchange their subunits with aldolase C in opposition to the native molecules. At transition point for I2 appearance (1.8 M acrylamide), aldolase becomes highly unstable: part of molecules dissociate into subunits which in the absence of perturbant are able to reassociate into active tetramers, the remaining part undergoes irreversible denaturation and aggregation. Some expansion of aldolase tetramers takes place prior to dissociation. D, observed above 3.0 M acrylamide, consists of irreversibly denatured enzyme molecules.  (+info)

Commission Recommendation 2007/331/EC of 3 May 2007 on the monitoring of acrylamide levels in food requires the Member States to perform annually in 2007, 2008 and 2009 the monitoring of acrylamide levels in certain foodstuffs. The current report describes the results of the monitoring exercise for 2008. A total of 22 Member States and Norway submitted to EFSA 3461 results. The mean acrylamide level (upper bound values) ranged from 23 µg/kg for bread non-specified to 1124 µg/kg for substitute coffee. Both the highest 95th percentile value and maximum value were reported for substitute coffee at 3300 and 7095 µg/kg, respectively. The 2008 results were compared with the 3281 results collected in 2007. The product categories potato crisps, instant coffee and substitute coffee showed statistically significantly higher levels of acrylamide in 2008 data compared to 2007 data. On the other hand, French fries and fried potato products for home cooking, soft bread, bread not ...
The aim of this thesis was to verify the indicated occurrence of acrylamide formation in heating of food, to identify factors affecting the formation, and to identify important sources of acrylamide exposure from food. As a prerequisite for the studies, gas- and liquid-chromatographic methods with mass spectrometric detection were developed for the analysis of acrylamide in food. The developed methods showed a high correlation coefficient (0.99), high sensitivity and reproducibility. Acrylamide was demonstrated to occur in heated food products, with unexpectedly high levels in potato products (up to mg/kg level in potato crisps) and in beetroot. The identity of acrylamide was confirmed by the developed methods. With potato as a food model, different factors affecting the acrylamide formation were tested. It was shown that the addition of asparagine and fructose, as well as heating temperature and time had a large impact on the formation. Other factors affecting the acrylamide content were pH, ...
In our large, prospective cohort study among women, we found no association between acrylamide intake and risk for breast cancer. However, we observed an increased risk for endometrial cancer overall and among never-smoking women and a suggestion of increased risk for ovarian cancer overall, with a significantly increased risk for invasive and serous ovarian tumors.. The lack of association between acrylamide intake and breast cancer risk is in line with findings from previous prospective studies based on food-frequency questionnaires, including two cohorts of Swedish women (10, 12), the Netherlands Cohort Study (13), and the NHS II (11). A separate report from the Netherlands Cohort Study (14) did find a suggestion of increased risk for estrogen and progesterone receptor-positive in postmenopausal women; however, neither the relative risks for the top quintiles nor the P values for linear trend were statistically significant. These results seem to be in conflict with a nested case-control study ...
Acrylamide is a chemical compound found in carbohydrate rich foods [1]. There has been an increased interest in acrylamide as it has been shown to be a carcinogenic and neurotoxic substance [1]. Neurotoxins are toxins that target the nervous system and disrupt the signalling that allows neurons to communicate effectively [2]. An EFSA report on the exposure of acrylamide in European member states shows that main contributors of acrylamide, across Europe, are French fries, potato crisps and coffee [3].. Factors to consider when examining the formation of acrylamide are the ingredients used in the recipe of the product and how the product is produced [4].Temperature has a major effect on the formation of acrylamide in foods; it has been shown that there are high levels of acrylamide in food that are cooked at temperatures above 120°C [4].. In 2005 a set of voluntary guidelines (it was later updated in 2009), called the CIAA toolbox was developed to help producers and processors identify ways ...
This prospective cohort study provides the first epidemiologic indications that dietary acrylamide intake may increase the risk of cancer in humans. For both endometrial and ovarian cancer, a positive association with dietary acrylamide was observed, particularly in the subgroup of never-smoking women. Whether the differences between the total group and the never-smokers are due to effect modification by smoking or due to masking of the dietary acrylamide effect by acrylamide or other compounds in tobacco smoke remains to be established. Smoking may induce epoxide hydrolase, which results in enhanced metabolism of glycidamide (33), after which there is less glycidamide left to damage DNA.. There was no association between acrylamide intake and postmenopausal breast cancer, which is in line with the only other prospective cohort study on this topic (23), although this latter study investigated mainly premenopausal breast cancer. According to the formula of Cai et al. (39) for calculating power ...
Following a comprehensive review of the available evidence, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) expert Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain has published a scientific opinion reconfirming previous evaluations that the food processing contaminant acrylamide is potentially carcinogenic.. Acrylamide is produced in a variety of starchy foods that are cooked at high temperatures as a by-product of the Maillard browning reaction. The most important food groups contributing to acrylamide exposure are fried potato products, coffee, biscuits, crackers, crisp bread and soft bread.. Animal studies have shown that acrylamide and its metabolite glycidamide are genotoxic and carcinogenic. Evidence from studies on the effect of dietary exposure to acrylamide in humans is limited and so far inconclusive, but the Panel reiterated its view that the chemical potentially increases the risk of developing cancer for consumers of all ages when present in food.. The scientific opinion can be found in full on ...

Neurodegenerative properties of acrylamide were studied in vitro by exposure of differentiated SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells for 72 h. The number of neurites per cell and the total cellular protein content were determined every 24 h throughout the exposure and the subsequent 96-h recovery period. Using kinetic data on the metabolism of acrylamide in rat, a biokinetic model was constructed in which the in vitro toxicity data were integrated. Using this model, we estimated the acute and subchronic toxicity of acrylamide for the rat in vivo. These estimations were compared to experimentally derived lowest observed effect doses (LOEDs) for daily intraperitoneal exposure (1, 10, 30, and 90 days) to acrylamide. The estimated LOEDs differed maximally twofold from the experimental LOEDs, and the nonlinear response to acrylamide exposure over time was simulated correctly. It is concluded that the integration of the present in vitro toxicity data with kinetic data gives adequate estimates of acute and ...
The result: The incidence of breast cancer among women with a high acrylamide intake was about the same as women with low intakes.. That corresponds with findings from a previous study (also by Mucci) of Swedish women that also showed no association between dietary acrylamide and risk of breast cancer. The largest source of dietary acrylamide in U.S. women is french fries, while in Swedish women it is coffee.. The only other published epidemiological study, conducted in Italy, also found no association.. "At the moment, I dont think there is any clear connection between acrylamide and breast cancer," said Shiuan Chen, director and professor of surgical research at City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, Calif..

Introduction: Acrylamide (ACR) is a neurotoxic material to animals and humans.Aim: To elucidate the possible structural changes that may occur in cerebellum of male albino rat offspring after oral administration of acrylamide to their pregnant and lactating mothers.Material and Methods: After mating, 54 pregnant female rats were divided equally into three groups. Group A: did not receive any treatment and group B: received 10mgkgday of acrylamide orally from day 7 (D7) of gestation until birth. While, group C received the same dose and route of acrylamide from D7 of gestation until postnatal day (PD) 21. The male pups of each group were divided into subgroups according to the PD of sacrifice; PD7, PD14, and PD21 respectively. Cerebellum specimens were processed for light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, morphometeric and statistical studies.Results: With acrylamide treatment, the general observation revealed signals of neurological abnormalities. There were histopathological degenerative changes in the
TY - CHAP. T1 - Acrylamide and Related α,β-Unsaturated Carbonyl Derivatives. AU - LoPachin, Richard M.. AU - Gavin, T.. PY - 2014/1/1. Y1 - 2014/1/1. N2 - Acrylamide is a weak electrophile and a member of a large class of structurally related type-2 alkenes that includes acrolein and other well-known toxicants. Human exposure occurs through occupation, pollution, diet, and cigarette smoking and can result in mental status changes, ataxia, and skeletal muscle weakness. Acrylamide neurotoxicity appears to be mediated by early nerve terminal dysfunction in the peripheral and central nervous systems. Although the precise mechanism is unknown, acrylamide can inhibit presynaptic protein function by forming covalent bonds (adducts) with sulfhydryl thiolate groups on corresponding cysteine residues. Some evidence also suggests that acrylamide is a developmental toxicant and a possible carcinogen.. AB - Acrylamide is a weak electrophile and a member of a large class of structurally related type-2 ...
Exposure to acrylamide -- present in industrial by-products, cigarette smoke, and a variety of fried or baked foods -- can reduce serum levels of insulin, Taiwanese researchers report.

Acrylamide is a chemical in potato chips that may increase your risks of cancer and nerve damage. Acrylamide forms when you cook potatoes at high temperatures, causing a chemical reaction between sugars and an amino acid called asparagine that are both present in potatoes. Research by scientists at the Department of Food Engineering at the Mersin University in Ciftlikkoy, Turkey, and published in the "Journal of Food Science" in 2010 discovered acrylamide levels in potato chips increases with frying temperature and baking at 170 degrees Centigrade more than doubles the amount of acrylamides formed from frying at the same temperature. The research found that when baking at 180 and 190 degrees Centigrade, acrylamide levels are lower than the frying. Research by scientists at the National Institute of Food and Nutrition in Warsaw, Poland, and published in "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in 2009 discovered that chronic ingestion of acrylamide-containing potato chip products induces a ...
Polyacrylamide is formed by the polymerization of the monomer molecule-acrylamide crosslinked by N,N-methylene-bis-acrylamide (abbreviated BIS). Free radicals generated by ammonium persulfate (APS) and a catalyst acting as an oxygen scavenger (-N,N,N,N-tetramethylethylene diamine [TEMED]) are required to start the polymerization since acrylamide and BIS are nonreactive by themselves or when mixed together. The distinct advantage of acrylamide gel systems is that the initial concentrations of acrylamide and BIS control the hardness and degree of crosslinking of the gel. The hardness of a gel in turn controls the friction that macromolecules experience as they move through the gel in an electric field, and therefore affects the resolution of the components to be separated. Hard gels (12-20% acrylamide) retard the migration of large molecules more than they do small ones. In certain cases, high concentration acrylamide gels are so tight that they exclude large molecules from entering the gel but ...
Background and Objectives: Acrylamide is a monomer which is formed in foodstuffs containing carbohydrates altered to asparagine during thermal processing. Vitamin E is a component in human diet considered as the most effective lipid-soluble antioxidant found in the biological system. It prevents initiation of oxidative tissue damage. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential role of vitamin E on hepatic biochemical and histological integrity in male mice fed with acrylamide. Materials and Methods: Twenty-eight adult male mice were randomly divided into four groups comprised of seven mice each. The first group served as control fed on ad-libitum diet; second group received 10 mg/kg/day acrylamide in drinking water; in third group, 100 mg/kg/day vitamin E was injected intraperitoneal, and fourth received a combination of acrylamide/vitamin E for 35 days. After cutting liver, liver injury was assessed by hematoxylin and eosin, and reticulin staining. Results: Following acrylamide
LE ROUX-PULLEN, L and LESSING, D. Should veterinarians consider acrylamide that potentially occurs in starch-rich foodstuffs as a neurotoxin in dogs?. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.2, pp.129-130. ISSN 2224-9435.. Three clinically healthy Labrador puppies developed ataxia, hypermetria and convulsions shortly after eating the burnt crust of maize porridge. Two of the puppies died. Acrylamide toxicity was considered based on the history of all 3 puppies developing nervous signs after being exposed to a starch-based foodstuff that was subjected to high temperature during preparation. Acrylamide-induced neurotoxicity is thought to partially result from a distal axonopathy.. Keywords : acrylamide; ataxia; convulsions; distal axonopathy; high temperature; hypermetria; starch. ...

N2 - Acrylamide (AA) and glycidamide (GA) can be produced in carbohydrate-rich food when heated at a high temperature, which can induce a malignant transformation. It has been demonstrated that GA is more mutagenic than AA. It has been shown that the proliferation rate of some cancer cells are increased by treatment with GA; however, the exact genes that are induced by GA in most cancer cells are not clear. In the present study, we demonstrated that GA promotes the growth of prostate cancer cells through induced protein expression of the cell cycle regulator. In addition, we also found that GA ...

Increased acrylamide exposure could lead to a lifetime increased risk of cancer, as well as negative effects on the nervous and reproductive systems. However, its not been proven that acrylamide has a bad effect on humans, and the increased risk would come from heavy exposure to these types of foods.. "Go for Gold - as a general rule of thumb, aim for a golden yellow colour or lighter when frying, baking, toasting or roasting starchy foods like potatoes, root vegetables and bread," the agency states. "Check the pack - follow the cooking instructions carefully when frying or oven-heating packaged food products such as chips, roast potatoes and parsnips. The on-pack instructions are designed to cook the product correctly. This ensures that you arent cooking starchy foods for too long or at temperatures which are too high. Eat a varied and balanced diet - while we cant completely avoid risks like acrylamide in food, eating a healthy, balanced diet that includes basing meals on starchy ...

tetramethylethylenediamine (TEMED). The gels are neutral, hydrophillic, three-dimensional networks of long hydrocarbons crosslinked by methylene groups. The separation of molecules within a gel is determined by the relative size of the pores formed within the gel. The pore size of a gel is determined by two factors, the total amount of acrylamide present (designated as %T) and the amount of cross-linker (%C). As the total amount of acrylamide increases, the pore size decreases. With cross- linking, 5%C gives the smallest pore size. Any increase or decrease in %C increases the pore size. Gels are designated as percent solutions and will have two necessary parameters. The total acrylamide is given as a % (w/v) of the acrylamide plus the bis-acrylamide. Thus, a 7 1/2 %T would indicate that there is a total of 7.5 gms of acrylamide and bis per 100 ml of gel. A gel designated as 7.5%T:5%C would have a total of 7.5% (w/v) acrylamide + bis, and the bis would be 5% of the total (with pure acrylamide ...

This invention describes novel hydrophobically associating ter or tetra polymers which can contain sulfonate functionality which are useful as aqueous fluid rheology or flow modifiers. These high molecular weight water soluble polymers contain both water soluble and water insoluble monomers. The water soluble monomers are N, N dimethylacrylamide acrylamide (DMA) and optionally a salt of an ethylenically unsaturated sulfonic acid (s) or N-vinylpyrrolidinone or a metal acrylate and the water insoluble monomer is a higher alkyl acrylamide (R). The process for their preparation relies on solubilizing the water insoluble monomer into an aqueous micellar solution containing one or more surfactants and the water soluble monomers. The surfactants are specifically selected to enable homogeneous dispersion of the hydrophobic monomer(s) in the presence of anionic sulfonate containing monomers. Redox or free radical initiators are used to copolymerize both the water soluble and water insoluble monomers,

Acrylamide in food will be reevaluated when results of an ongoing toxicology studies become available ...
Before, I dont have any problem with seeing a clear band (although it is highly glycosylated), but recently I cannot get the same clear result! The bands always ran much broader like a smear. It seems my SDS-PAGE gel has some problem, so I tried the new TEMED, freshly prepared APS, and also prepared the fresh 30% acrylamide solution (with 0.8% bis-acrylamide). I found the acrylamide solution CANNOT fully dissolve after even 10 hours!!!!!! (I THINK IT SHOULD BE VERY EASY TO GET A CLEAR SOLUTION) So I filtered it, and do the Western Blot again, the bands are still not clear ...
The present invention relates to a process for the formation of water soluble copolymers of acrylamide and alkyl poly(etheroxy)acrylate which are excellent viscosification agents, wherein the process includes the free radical copolymerization of acrylamide monomer and alkyl poly(etheroxy)acrylate monomer in an aqueous medium under nitrogen conditions in the presence of free radical initiator at a sufficient temperature and for a sufficient time to effect copolymerization.
The simplest thing is to break it up with a spatula or plastic pipet until the pieces are small enough to fall through the mouth. Then you can just rinse out the little gritty things left behind. If the flask is so large a normal spatula or pipet wont reach, then youve got a problem. You might try some acid chromate cleaning solution. Qiagen sells a kit for recovery of nucleic acids from gel fragments that actually dissolves the acrylamide. Its designed for fairly small volumes of acrylamide, though. I always thought the active ingredient was a chaotropic salt like LiSO4 or LiCl, but I dont know for sure. I guess you could try heating in 1N NaOH or 1N HCl to see if you can hydrolyze the amide links. Maybe KMnO4 cleaning solutions might work ...

This study has two parts. In the first part, fourteen carcinogen risk assessments of acrylamide made by different expert groups during the years 1976-2002 are compared in terms of their overall conclusions and their use of primary data. In the second part, the public debate on acrylamide and cancer risks and the questioning of the expert risk assessment, that arose as a reaction to the identification of this substance in staple food is discussed. In the first part it is shown that the expert risk assessors concur to a large degree about the assessment of the acrylamide potential to cause cancer. Three risk assessors have concluded that acrylamide is neither carcinogenic to humans nor to animals, while eleven risk assessors have concluded that acrylamide is carcinogenic in animals and is likely to be carcinogenic in humans. The differences in the overall conclusions seem to a large extent be explained by an evolving database. The risk assessors agree considerably on how to interpret and evaluate ...
A pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model has been developed for acrylamide (AMD) and its oxidative metabolite, glycidamide (GLY), in the rat based on available information. Despite gaps and limitations to the database, model parameters have been estimated to provide a relatively consistent description of the kinetics of acrylamide and glycidamide using a single set of values (with minor adjustments in some cases). Future kinetic and mechanistic studies will need to focus on the collection of key data for refining certain model parameters and for model validation, as well as for conducting studies that elucidate the mechanism of action ...

The radical copolymerization of micelle-forming sodium 11-acrylamidoundecanoate (Na 11-AAU) with acrylamide (AM) has been studied. The copolymer compositions were determined from elemental analyses and 13C NMR. The radical reactivity ratios for Na 11-AAU (M1) and AM (M2) were found to be r1 = 0.71 and r2 = 0.62. The molecular weights of the copolymers as determined by light scattering ranged from 0.88 to 1.62 × 106. The presence of AM up to 50 mol% in the feed did not seem to affect the molecular weights of the copolymers. However, the radius of gyration of the copolymers increased slightly with the increase of AM. The viscosities of the copolymer solutions also increased with AM content, but they were sharply reduced by the effect of NaCl or on aging at room temperature ...

Photopolymers are fast becoming one of the most popular holographic recording media due to their suitability for a wide range of holographic applications, such as sensors, diffractive optics and data storage. The majority of the investigated water-soluble holographic photopolymers are Acrylamide (AA) based. However, the toxic and carcinogenic nature of AA is a growing concern. In order for photopolymer recording media to be a viable option for holographic applications, efforts must be made to remove any occupational and environmental hazards involved in large-scale material development and device fabrication. The main objective of the work presented here is the development and characterisation of an environmentally friendly photopolymer for holographic applications which uses the non-toxic, non-carcinogenic monomer Diacetone Acrylamide (DA) as a substitute for AA in the photopolymer composition. The new DA photopolymer has been shown to achieve diffraction efficiency values of up to 95 % in transmission

Polyacrylamide has certain advantages over agarose (mentioned later). The agarose gel has large pore sizes so molecular sieving (separation by size) will not occur for smaller DNA fragments or most proteins. Further, the ability to alter both the acrylamide and the bis crosslinker in the polyacrylamide gel, allows the pore size to be altered in a very reproducible manner. This results in excellent resolution down to 0.1% of the size of the molecule. For example proteins of Mr as close as 100-kD and 99.9-kD can be resolved using appropriate conditions.. Note the following terms and their definitions:. Mr is a symbol for relative molecular mass, which is the proper term for molecular ...
