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)

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 ...

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 ...
Acrylamide formation in cooked food has become a significant problem for the food industry. This study concerned the accumulation of free asparagine, one of the precursors for acrylamide formation, in wheat and rye grain. Asparagine concentration was found to be greatly affected by environmental conditions (E), genetic factors (G) and the interaction between the two (G x E). One of the environmental conditions controlling free asparagine accumulation in wheat grain was sulphur deficiency, which caused an increase of up to thirty-fold in free asparagine concentration. Sulphur deficiency and free asparagine concentration were linearly related to the amount of acrylamide that formed when wheat flour was heated at 180°C. Asparagine concentration was also the main determinant of acrylamide formation in rye but, unlike in wheat, it was not affected by sulphur availability, at least under field conditions. Rye flour had lower acrylamide forming potential than wheat per unit of asparagine, possibly due ...
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 ...
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 ...
The present study investigated the effect of rutin on acrylamide (ACR) toxicity was evaluated in experimental animal rats. The rats were feeding on basal diet and received oral 20 mg/kg b.w of acrylamide with 100, 50 and 25 mg/kg w.t of rutin; others were received the acrylamide concentrations only. The present results showed that 8-hydroxydeoxy guanidine (8-OHdG), protein carbonyl (PC), reactive oxygen species (ROS), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-α), nitric oxide (NO) myeloperoxidase (MPO), caspase-3, bax, P53 and cytochrome-C in liver tissues were increased in rats-treated with acrylamide. This effect of acrylamide was attenuated by rutin. In conclusion, rutin ameliorates hepatotoxicity induced by acrylamide in male albino rats. It can be recommend the use of rutin to mitigate the acrylamide concentration in food products.

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..

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

After reading the column my editor rightly asked, Wait a minute. What about cancer? He called my attention to the preliminary ruling of a Los Angeles Superior Court judge that coffee purveyors must warn consumers about a potential cancer risk. According to Californias Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65, businesses with more than 10 employees must warn consumers if their products contain one of many chemicals that ...
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. ...

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 ...

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,

The objective of this study is the evaluation of the potential of high-throughput direct analysis in real time-high resolution mass spectrometry (DART-HRMS) fingerprinting and multivariate regression analysis in prediction of the extent of acrylamide formation in biscuit samples prepared by various recipes and baking conditions. Information-rich mass spectral fingerprints were obtained by analysis of biscuit extracts for preparation of which aqueous methanol was used. The principal component analysis (PCA) of the acquired data revealed an apparent clustering of samples according to the extent of heat-treatment applied during the baking of the biscuits. The regression model for prediction of acrylamide in biscuits was obtained by partial least square regression (PLSR) analysis of the data matrix representing combined positive and negative ionization mode fingerprints. The model provided a least root mean square error of cross validation (RMSECV) equal to an acrylamide concentration of 5.4 mu g ...

A team of researchers from Maastricht University in the Netherlands have studied the association between cancer and the chemical acrylamide-a substance known to cause cancer in mice. The study is published in the May issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Acrylamide is found in French fries, potato chips, coffee, fried and baked foods, olives, and even breakfast cereals. It s also used for food packaging, and to manufacture cosmetics and plastics. We have known for years that acrylamide is present in much of our food. What we haven t known is whether it poses a health risk to humans. Researchers from the Netherlands began looking at data from a large study on diet and cancer that began in 1986. Acrylamide intake was estimated among 121000 participants who revealed their eating habits by way of a questionnaire. The study focused on cancer rates and acrylamide intake. The group was followed for thirteen years. The age range was 55 to 70, and the participants consumed an average of 22 ...
The discovery came after a sequence of unusual, coincidental events. A Swedish construction team using polyacrylamide to plug leaks in a tunnel became ill, and Törnqvist was asked to investigate the workers exposure to acrylamide. But when she looked for healthy members of the public to use as controls, they too had unexpectedly high levels of acrylamide. At the same time, Tareke was studying acrylamide levels in wild animals and domesticated pets, and she found unexpectedly high levels of the compound in pets, she told C&EN. Because a main difference between wild and domesticated animals is their consumption of highly processed pet food, the researchers began to wonder whether the levels of acrylamide in humans are also attributable to consumption of highly processed food. Then they showed that processed food did in fact have substantial levels of the chemical.. ...
A comparative analysis of determination of cross-link density (v,) of hydrogels by using swelling tests and mechanical measurements has been made. Poly(acrylamide/methacrylamide) P(AAm/MAAm) and poly(acrylamide/hydroxyethyl methacrylate) P(AAm/HEMA) hydrogels were prepared by using gamma rays and used as model hydrogel systems. The uniaxial compression test was applied to cylindrical gel samples in the swollen state at pH 7. Stress-strain curves of hydrogels were evaluated to calculate the shear modulus values. The average molecular weight between cross-links ((M) over bar (c)) and nu(e) obtained from mechanical measurements were significantly different than the values obtained from swelling experiments. Large differences were attributed to the uncertainty on the value of the chi parameter used in the Flory-Rehner equation. +/- 1% change in this parameter doubled or reduced the M, value of hydrogel to half value.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Protein adsorption mechanisms determine the efficiency of thermally controlled cell adhesion on poly(N -isopropyl acrylamide) brushes. AU - Choi, Sangwook. AU - Choi, Byung Chan. AU - Xue, Changying. AU - Leckband, Deborah E. PY - 2013/1/14. Y1 - 2013/1/14. N2 - This study investigated the impact of the protein adsorption mechanism(s) on the efficiency of thermally controlled cell adhesion and release from poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) brushes. Large format polymer gradients were used to screen for grafting densities and substrate chemistries that alter both cell adhesion at 37 °C and rapid cell release at 25 °C. In particular, the grafting conditions investigated allowed protein adsorption to the underlying substrate, penetration of the brush only, or adsorption to the outer edge of the film. At an average molecular weight of 30 kDa (degree of polymerization N ∼ 270), the results show that robust protein adsorption to polymer brushes impairs rapid cell release below the lower ...

Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane (DDD) is an organochlorine insecticide that is slightly irritating to the skin.[1] DDD is a metabolite of DDT.[2] DDD is colorless and crystalline;[3] it is closely related chemically and is similar in properties to DDT, but it is considered to be less toxic to animals than DDT.[4] The molecular formula for DDD is (ClC6H4)2CHCHCl2 or C14H10Cl4, whereas the formula for DDT is (ClC6H4)2CHCCl3 or C14H9Cl5. DDD is in the Group B2 classification, meaning that it is a probable human carcinogen. This is based on an increased incidence of lung tumors in male and female mice, liver tumors in male mice, and thyroid tumors in male rats. Further basis is that DDD is so similar to and is a metabolite of DDT, another probable human carcinogen.[2] DDD is no longer registered for agricultural use in the United States, but the general population continues to be exposed to it due to its long persistence time. The primary source of exposure is oral ingestion of food.[5] 1946 is the ...
The genetically modified Innate potato was approved by the United States Department of Agriculture in 2014[1] and the US FDA in 2015.[2][3][4] The cultivar was developed by J. R. Simplot Company. It is designed to resist blackspot bruising, browning and to contain less of the amino acid asparagine that turns into acrylamide during the frying of potatoes. Acrylamide is a probable human carcinogen, so reduced levels of it in fried potato foods is desirable.[5][6] The Innate name comes from the fact that this variety does not contain any genetic material from other species (the genes used are innate to potatoes) and uses RNA interference to switch off genes. Simplot hopes that not including genes from other species will assuage consumer fears about biotechnology.[5] The Innate potato is not a single cultivar; rather, it is a group of potato varieties that have had the same genetic alterations applied using the same process. Five different potato varieties have been transformed, creating ...
The FDA website includes several glaring errors on its Established List of Harmful and Potentially Harmful Constituents in Tobacco Products or Tobacco Smoke (here). For example, the list wrongly identifies acrylamide as both a respiratory and a cardiovascular toxicant. It is neither of these. It is a probable human carcinogen, according to IARC, and it was correctly labeled in the list published in the federal register (here). I recently collaborated with scientists from BAT to publish a comprehensive analysis of acrylamide in smokeless tobacco products from Sweden and the U.S. (here). Our study showed that it is present in all products we tested, but exposure… from consumption of smokeless tobacco products is small compared with exposure from food… or cigarette smoking ...

Acrylamide (ACR), a type-2 alkene, may lead to a synaptopathy characterized by ataxia, skeletal muscles weakness and numbness of the extremities in exposed human and laboratory animals. Currently, only the mildly affected patients undergo complete recovery, and identification of new molecules with therapeutic bioactivity against ACR acute neurotoxicity is urgently needed. Here, we have generated a zebrafish model for ACR neurotoxicity by exposing 5 days post-fertilization zebrafish larvae to 1 mM ACR for 3 days. Our results show that zebrafish mimics most of the pathophysiological processes described in humans and mammalian models. Motor function was altered, and specific effects were found on the presynaptic nerve terminals at the neuromuscular junction level, but not on the axonal tracts or myelin sheath integrity. Transcriptional markers of proteins involved in synaptic vesicle cycle were selectively altered, and the proteomic analysis showed that ACR-adducts were formed on cysteine residues ...

Electrophoreseis is usually carried out within a matrix or gel made of agarose or polyacrylamide. These gels are chemically inert, so they will interfere little with the molecules. The sample is loaded in the gel;in wells for nucleic acids separation. Agarose is a polysaccharide extracted from seaweed. Agarose gels have a large range of separation depending on the concentration.The higher the concentration the smaller the pore size will be.Polyacrylamide is a cross-linked polymer of acrylamide.To avoid inhibition of polymerization by oxygen, they are poured between glass plates to mage gel slabs.Low concentration of polyacrylamide or less cross linking results in gels with large pores. Standard protein gels are typically composed of two layers, ahe top-most layer called the stacking gel and a lower layer called separating or resolving gel.The stacking layer contains a low percentage of acylamide and low pH , while the acrylamide concentration of the separating gel varies according to the samples ...

Acrylonitrile is a monomer used extensively as a raw material in the manufacturing of acrylic fibers, plastics, synthetic rubbers, and acrylamide. It has been classified as a probable human carcinogen according to the results of numerous chronic rat bioassays. The present report summarizes the toxicity data on acrylonitrile and reviews available data concerning the mechanism (genetic versus epigenetic) by which acrylonitrile is carcinogenic in rats. From the evaluation of the relevant toxicity data, it can be concluded that acrylonitrile is indeed carcinogenic to rats after either oral or inhalational exposure. However, information on other mammalian species is lacking, and, moreover, the exact mechanism of the carcinogenic process is unclear. Therefore, it is recommended to conduct an additional long-term inhalation carcinogenicity study with acrylonitrile in mice, as well as studies into the mechanism by which acrylonitrile induces (brain) tumors in rats (genetic versus epigenetic).. ...
Free amino acids found within plasma are useful biochemical markers for the diagnosis and clinical management of inborn errors of metabolism and assessment of nutritional status in humans and animals. APAF has been involved in studies investigating the effect of acute serotonin and/or dopamine depletion resulting from dietary depletion of tryptophan and/or tyrosine/phenylalanine on psychiatric disorders; and the effects of amino acid supplementation on exercise-induced fatigue.. Free amino acids are also of interest in plant metabolism studies and food science where they serve as substrates for fermentation-based processes, contribute to food flavour and are implicated in acrylamide formation during cooking.. Our capability to analyse for free amino acids has been expanded by the recent establishment of a UPLC based method that currently can separate 36 physiological amino acids in under 15 minutes. As well as the 20 common amino acids; Ornithine, Citrulline, Hydroxproline, Hydroxylysine, ...
Eliminate gluten and fried starches such as French fries for better body composition and health. Even if youre not allergic to gluten, youll be so much better off if you eliminate it because most foods with gluten are high-carb, high-glycemic, and even though they cause an insulin spike, they arent well digested. Depending on your level of tolerance for gluten, it can cause a wide variety of other health problems including weakness, anemia, malnutrition, osteoarthritis, bone disorders, stomach cancer, and abdominal bloating to name a few-all problems that will trip you up if you want to be at your best.. Starches such as potatoes should also be avoided because they contain a substance called acrylamide, which when fried or heated at a temperature above 120 degrees F, is released in high quantities. Acrylamide is a neurotoxin that modifies endocrine release and the binding of hormone receptors. If you eat French fries, potato chips and baked products (that also contain gluten), youll ingest ...

A common chemical caused by frying, roasting or grilling can double the risk of cancer in women, The Daily Telegraph reported today. The story warns that acrylamide, a chemical contained in cooked foods including bread, coffee and breakfast cereals, and meat and potatoes that have been fried, baked, roasted, grilled or barbecued, has been directly linked to the incidence of ovarian and womb cancer.. This news story is based on a recent study conducted in Holland, which found that women who consumed foods that contained a lot of acrylamide (more than 40 micrograms/day) were at greater risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer. The study adds to a growing body of knowledge about this chemical. It is the first study of its kind that has found an actual (rather than hypothetical) association between consumption of acrylamide and cancer in humans.

Comonomers were studied that comprised acrylamide and sodium 3-acrylamido-3-methylbutanoate, sodium 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulfonate, diacetone acrylamide or isopropylacrylamide. A copolymer of sodium 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulfonate and 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanetrimethylammonium chloride was also included. The technique is rapid and provides copolymer compositional analysis with accuracies close to those obtained by conventional elemental analysis and solution n.m.r, techniques. Spectral resolution is excellent and d.p.m.a.s.n.m.r, allows shorter acquisition times and smaller sample size. The technique is applied to a variety of acrylamide copolymers including polyelectrolytes, polyampholytes and hydrophobically associating polymers. The results are compared to copolymer compositions
At 10:47 AM 3/16/99 +0100, J.S. Good wrote: ,Any reason why one shouldnt mix acrylamide, buffer, water, SDS and use ,this as as a stock solution, adding APS and TEMED at the last minute to an ,aliquot prior to casting the gel? , , Reasons for not doing this: 1. You may not use the same percentage of gel every time. 2. You need to store acrylamide in the cold and SDS comes out of solution in cold. You dont want to warm the acrylamide solution repeatedly. 3. You really do not need much time to mix the stock solutions up for making the gel. If you must, you may make up the working buffer solutions (ie. Tris.Cl and SDS) for both the resolving and the stacking gels at 4x concentration and store those indefinitely (making sure there is no change in conc. through evap.).

The nitrosamine impurity known as N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA has been classified as a probable human carcinogen based on lab tests, and […]
Plywood & Particleboard. While new building materials are generally lighter and more resource efficient, relying less on solid timber than in the old days, many are manufactured with formaldehyde-based glues. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen. Moreover, it can off-gas from the boards into the air, silently polluting your homes air for years (the offgassing rate is especially intense in new materials, and in hot, humid weather). Long-term inhalation of formaldehyde vapors can cause fatigue, respiratory irritation, impaired lung function, and allergic skin reactions.. ...

Today we agreed some points to improve the experiment which did not go well with the experiment on 8/9. We change to sybr gold staining of electrophoresis on 10% acrylamide gel and extend to 50 minutes, the time interval for aggregating of Query and tournament or loop n tube. We failed to make the gel and we took a lot of time to do the experiment. Since we recreate the solution , we could not have sufficient time for experiments. Thus, we did only experiment of 10% gel today. We keep the 20% gel, but I thought better to rebuild them because the bubbles of steam appeared during production. I wonder whether appearance of bubbles with steam might be normal. The photo was published in the Google drive of the results of electrophoresis. The band did not appear clearly. This is likely because of a failure on making the gel. Possible causes for the failure are, using the old acrylamide, forgetting to put a buffer which dilute the sample. ...
