Minor tobacco alkaloids as biomarkers for tobacco use: comparison of users of cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipes. (1/42)

OBJECTIVES: This study (1) determined levels of various tobacco alkaloids in commercial tobacco products. (2) determined urinary concentrations, urinary excretion, and half-lives of the alkaloids in humans; and (3) examined the possibility that urine concentrations of nicotine-related alkaloids can be used as biomarkers of tobacco use. METHODS: Nicotine intake from various tobacco products was determined through pharmacokinetic techniques. Correlations of nicotine intake with urinary excretion and concentrations of anabasine, anatabine, nornicotine, nicotine, and cotinine were examined. By using urinary excretion data, elimination half-lives of the alkaloids were calculated. RESULTS: Alkaloid levels in commercial tobacco products, in milligrams per gram, were as follows: nicotine, 6.5 to 17.5; nornicotine, 0.14 to 0.66; anabasine, 0.008 to 0.030; and anatabine, 0.065 to 0.27. Measurable concentrations of all alkaloids were excreted in the urine of most subjects smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes and using smokeless tobacco. Correlations between nicotine intake and alkaloid concentrations were good to excellent. CONCLUSIONS: Anabasine and anatabine, which are present in tobacco but not in nicotine medications, can be used to assess tobacco use in persons undergoing nicotine replacement therapy.  (+info)

Insecticidal and neural activities of candidate photoaffinity probes for neonicotinoid binding sites. (2/42)

Photoreactive derivatives of imidacloprid and its nitromethylene analogue were synthesized as candidate photoaffinity probes for identifying the amino acid residues of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) that interact with the neonicotinoid insecticides. When the candidate probes were injected into American cockroaches, the nerve cord neural activity initially increased, then ceased and death of the insect followed. Both the nerve cord and toxicity were enhanced by changing the photoreactive substituent from the para position to the meta position on the spacer benzyl moiety. When tested on a Drosophila SAD/chicken beta2 hybrid, recombinant nAChR expressed in Xenopus oocytes, the nitromethylene candidate probes showed agonist activity similar to that previously observed for imidacloprid.  (+info)

Benzylidene analogs of anabaseine display partial agonist and antagonist properties at the mouse 5-hydroxytryptamine(3A) receptor. (3/42)

The nicotinic receptor drug candidate, 3-(2,4-dimethoxybenzylidene)-anabaseine (also known as GTS-21; DMXBA), its hydroxy metabolites, and some related analogs were evaluated with the two-electrode voltage-clamp technique in mouse 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)(3A) receptors expressed in Xenopus oocytes. Although DMXBA lacked partial agonist activity, its hydroxy-benzylidene metabolites and related analogs were partial agonists, displaying the following rank order of potency (EC(50)) and apparent efficacy: 5-HT, 0.9 +/- 0.06 microM (100% efficacy) > 3-(2-hydroxy,4-methoxybenzylidene)-anabaseine (2-OH-MBA), 2.0 +/- 0.3 microM (63% efficacy) > 3-(2,4-dihydroxybenzylidene)-anabaseine, 2.6 +/- 0.3 microM (63% efficacy) > 3-(2-methoxy,4-hydroxybenzylidene)-anabaseine, 17.2 +/- 1.0 microM (30% efficacy). To examine the influence of a benzylidene ring hydroxy substituent, the agonist actions of the three possible monohydroxy isomers were examined. The rank order of potency, based on EC(50) determinations, and apparent efficacy was: 3-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)-anabaseine, 20.3 +/- 2.6 microM (63% efficacy) > 3-(4-hydroxybenzylidene)-anabaseine, 32.3 +/- 5.9 microM (14% efficacy) > 3-(3-hydroxybenzylidene)-anabaseine (3-OH-BA) (no agonist activity). Both DMXBA and 3-OH-BA antagonized 5-HT-mediated currents, with IC(50) values of 15.7 +/- 0.9 and 27.5 +/- 4.7 microM, respectively. DMXBA demonstrated both competitive and noncompetitive forms of antagonism over the range of concentrations tested. These results suggest that a hydroxy substituent at the 2' position of the benzene ring is necessary and sufficient for partial agonist activity; substitution at the 4' position with a hydroxy or methoxy group further enhances agonist potency. Because 2-OH-MBA is a primary metabolite of DMXBA, it may contribute to the physiological, biochemical, and behavioral effects of the parent compound when administered in vivo.  (+info)

Comparative pharmacology of rat and human alpha7 nAChR conducted with net charge analysis. (4/42)

1. Pharmacological studies of alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors are confounded by the fact that rapid desensitization to high agonist concentration causes alpha7 peak responses to occur well in advance of complete solution exchange. For this reason, peak currents are an invalid measure of response to applied agonist concentrations. We show that results comparable to those that have been corrected for instantaneous concentration are obtained if net charge is used as the measure of receptor response. 2. Dose response curves obtained with these methods indicate that alpha7 receptors are approximately 10 fold more sensitive to agonist than previously reported. The agonists, ACh, choline, cytisine, GTS-21, 4OH-GTS-21 and 4-MeO-CA have the same rank order potency for both human and rat receptors: 4-MeO-CA > 4OH-GTS-21 > GTS-21 > cytisine > ACh > choline. However, differences in efficacy exist between rat and human receptors. GTS-21 is more efficacious for rat than human alpha7 receptors and cytosine more efficacious for human than rat alpha7 receptors. 3. Choline is the least potent agonist for both human and rat alpha7, with a potency approximately 10 fold lower than that of ACh. While the EC50 for the activation of alpha7 receptors by choline (400-500 microM) is outside the normal physiological range (10-100 microM), choline can nonetheless produce detectable levels of channel activation in the physiological concentration range. Since these concentrations are relatively non-desensitizing, the contribution of choline-activated alpha7 receptor current may play a significant role in the regulation of calcium homeostasis in alpha7-expressing neurons.  (+info)

Simultaneous analysis of nicotine, nicotine metabolites, and tobacco alkaloids in serum or urine by tandem mass spectrometry, with clinically relevant metabolic profiles. (5/42)

BACKGROUND: Assessment of nicotine metabolism and disposition has become an integral part of nicotine dependency treatment programs. Serum nicotine concentrations or urine cotinine concentrations can be used to guide nicotine patch dose to achieve biological concentrations adequate to provide the patient with immediate relief from nicotine withdrawal symptoms, an important factor in nicotine withdrawal success. Absence of nicotine metabolites and anabasine can be used to document abstinence from tobacco products, an indicator of treatment success. METHODS: The procedure was designed to quantify nicotine, cotinine, trans-3'-hydroxycotinine, anabasine, and nornicotine in human serum or urine. The technique required simple extraction of the sample with quantification by HPLC-tandem mass spectrometry. RESULTS: The procedure for simultaneous analysis of nicotine, its metabolites, and tobacco alkaloids simultaneously quantified five different analytes. Test limit of quantification, linearity, imprecision, and accuracy were adequate for clinical evaluation of patients undergoing treatment for tobacco dependency. The test readily distinguished individuals who had no exposure to tobacco products from individuals who were either passively exposed or were abstinent past-tobacco users from those who were actively using a tobacco or nicotine product. CONCLUSIONS: Nicotine, cotinine, trans-3'-hydroxycotinine, nornicotine, and anabasine can be simultaneously and accurately quantified in either serum or urine by HPLC-tandem mass spectrometry with imprecision <10% at physiologic concentrations and limits of quantification ranging from 0.5 to 5 micro g/L. Knowledge of serum or urine concentrations of these analytes can be used to guide nicotine replacement therapy or to assess tobacco abstinence in nicotine dependency treatment. These measurements are now an integral part of the clinical treatment and management of patients who wish to overcome tobacco dependence.  (+info)

Anabasine and anatabine as biomarkers for tobacco use during nicotine replacement therapy. (6/42)

In this study we determined urine concentration of the tobacco alkaloids anabasine and anatabine, nicotine and its metabolites cotinine, and nornicotine in 99 cigarette smokers and 205 smokeless tobacco users. We also investigated the possibility that anabasine and anatabine can be used as biomarkers for tobacco use during nicotine replacement therapy. Urine samples and data on self-reported tobacco use were obtained from subjects enrolled in tobacco cessation programs. Urine concentrations of tobacco alkaloids and metabolites were measured and correlated with self-reported tobacco use. Concentrations of anabasine and anatabine were used to validate abstinence in smokeless tobacco users who used nicotine gum as part of the therapy. Correlations of alkaloid concentration with self-reported tobacco use before treatment ranged from fair to poor. In subjects abstaining from smokeless tobacco but using nicotine gum, anabasine and anatabine levels were below the cut-point of 2 ng/ml despite high concentrations of nicotine and cotinine resulting from nicotine gum use. Anabasine and anatabine concentrations in urine can be used to validate abstinence or measure the extent of tobacco use in persons undergoing nicotine replacement therapy.  (+info)

Regulation of neuronal function by choline and 4OH-GTS-21 through alpha 7 nicotinic receptors. (7/42)

A unique feature of alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor physiology is that, under normal physiological conditions, alpha7 receptors are constantly perfused with their natural selective agonist, choline. Studying neurons of hypothalamic tuberomammillary (TM) nucleus, we show that choline and the selective alpha7 receptor agonist 4OH-GTS-21 can regulate neuronal functions directly, via activation of the native alpha7 receptors, and indirectly, via desensitizing those receptors or transferring them into a state "primed" for desensitization. The direct action produces depolarization and thereby increases the TM neuron spontaneous firing (SF) rate. The regulation of the spontaneous firing rate is robust in a nonphysiological range of choline concentrations >200 microM. However, modest effects persist at concentrations of choline that are likely to be attained perineuronally under some conditions (20-100 microM). At high physiological concentration levels, the indirect choline action reduces or even eliminates the responsiveness of alpha7 receptors and their availability to other strong cholinergic inputs. Similarly to choline, 4OH-GTS-21 increases the TM neuron spontaneous firing rate via activation of alpha7 receptors, and this regulation is robust in the range of clinically relevant concentrations of 4OH-GTS-21. We conclude that factors that regulate choline accumulation in the brain and in experimental slices such as choline uptake, hydrolysis of ACh, membrane phosphatidylcholine catabolism, and solution perfusion rate influence alpha7 nAChR neuronal and synaptic functions, especially under pathological conditions such as stroke, seizures, Alzheimer's disease, and head trauma, when the choline concentration in the CSF is expected to rise.  (+info)

Components of cigarette smoke inhibit expansion of oocyte-cumulus complexes from porcine follicles. (8/42)

The role of alkaloids in cigarette smoke was investigated in the cumulus expansion of oocyte-cumulus complexes (OCC) isolated from large antral porcine follicles. Suppression of the cumulus expansion stimulated by FSH was observed in the presence of different concentration of cadmium, anabasine and nicotine but not its metabolite cotinine. There were comparable inhibitory effects of cadmium and nicotine on the synthesis and accumulation of hyaluronic acid in the cell/matrix compartment of OCC. The inhibitory effect of tested compounds on the cumulus expansion was accompanied by decreased progesterone synthesis by cumulus cells during 42 h incubation of OCC with FSH. The results suggest that cigarette smoking may affect intrafollicular processes, which are responsible for normal ovulation and fertilization.  (+info)

We are interested in understanding how kainate receptors, a family of ionotropic glutamate receptors in the mammalian CNS, operate at a molecular and biophysical level. Kainate receptors are modulatory proteins that help to balance excitatory and inhibitory tone through diverse actions at pre- and postsynaptic sites. They also have been shown to be promising drug targets in several pathologies (particularly epilepsy and chronic pain). A current project focuses on how an associated family of auxiliary proteins, known as Neto-1 and Neto-2, shape kainate receptor function. We would like to identify which domains in both the receptor subunits and auxiliary proteins are key for allosteric modulation by Neto proteins ...

p,Neonicotinoids are a widely used class of insecticides that are commonly applied as seed coatings for agricultural crops. Such neonicotinoid use may pose a risk to non-targetinsects, including pollinators and natural enemies of crop pests, and ecosystems. This study assessed neonicotinoid residues in groundwater, surface runoff water, soil, and native plants adjacent to corn and soybean crop fields with a history of being planted with neonicotinoid-treated seeds from 2008 to 2013. Data from six sites with the same crop management history, three with and three without in-field prairie strips, were collected in 2015-2016, 2-3 years after neonicotinoid (clothianidin and imidacloprid) seed treatments were last used. Three of the six neonicotinoids analyzed were detected in at least one environmental matrix: the two applied as seed coatings on the fields (clothianidin and imidacloprid) and another widely used neonicotinoid (thiamethoxam). Sites with prairie strips generally had lower concentrations ...
Since their discovery in the late 1980s, neonicotinoid pesticides have become the most widely used class of insecticides worldwide, with large-scale applications ranging from plant protection (crops, vegetables, fruits), veterinary products, and biocides to invertebrate pest control in fish farming. In this review, we address the phenyl-pyrazole fipronil together with neonicotinoids because of similarities in their toxicity, physicochemical profiles, and presence in the environment. Neonicotinoids and fipronil currently account for approximately one third of the world insecticide market; the annual world production of the archetype neonicotinoid, imidacloprid, was estimated to be ca. 20,000tonnes active substance in 2010. There were several reasons for the initial success of neonicotinoids and fipronil: (1) there was no known pesticide resistance in target pests, mainly because of their recent development, (2) their physicochemical properties included many advantages over previous generations of ...
The Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) today announced that the agency is initiating a re-evaluation of Canadas registration of two types of neonicotinoid insecticides (clothianidin and thiamethoxam). This notice adds two more neonicotinoids to the list that are already under re-evaluation (imidacloprid being the first). ...
Why are the Bees Dying Off? Reason #1: Neonicotinoid Pesticides. It has become well known especially in Russia and Europe that neonicotinoid pesticides are linked to bees dying off. Consequently, Europe restricted the use of 3 neonicotinoids for two years starting December 1st, 2013. Neonicotinoids are a relatively new class of insecticides that have a chemical structure very similar to nicotine (hence their name), and work by severely disrupting the central nervous system of insects, leading to paralysis and death. Common neonicotinoids are imidacloprid, acetamiprid and clothianidin, with Bayers imidacloprid the most widely used insecticide in the world.. Numerous studies have linked neonicotinoids and CCD, such as:. - this 2012 Xerxes study which found that "few field studies have been properly designed or conducted over a long enough period of time to assess the full risks to bees. Nevertheless, the overall evidence points to the fact that neonicotinoids are harming bees";. - this 2014 study ...
Neonicotinoids are considered safe because of their low affinities to mammalian nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) relative to insect nAChRs. However, because of importance of nAChRs in mammalian brain development, there remains a need to establish the safety of chronic neonicotinoid exposures with regards to childrens health. Here we examined the effects of longterm (14 days) and low dose (1 μM) exposure of neuron-enriched cultures from neonatal rat cerebellum to nicotine and two neonicotinoids: acetamiprid and imidacloprid. Immunocytochemistry revealed no differences in the number or morphology of immature neurons or glial cells in any group versus untreated control cultures. However, a slight disturbance in Purkinje cell dendritic arborization was observed in the exposed cultures. Next we performed transcriptome analysis on total RNAs using microarrays, and identified significant differential expression (p < 0.05, q < 0.05, ≥1.5 fold) between control cultures versus nicotine-,
While the EU acted in accordance with scientific research from the European Food Safety Authority, it will completely ban three substances (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam) known as neonicotinoids everywhere except greenhouses.. The way neonicotinoids work is by "integration throughout a plants structure," NPR reported. Instead of staying on the surface of the plant - such as its leaves - the chemicals are sent to the "flowers, pollen and nectar," which attacks bees nervous systems when encountered killing the crucial pollinators and keeping others from laying eggs.. "Bee health remains of paramount importance for me since it concerns biodiversity, food production and the environment," Vytenis Andriukaitis, the EUs Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, said.. Bayer CropScience, Europes biggest seller of neonicotinoids, reacted to the ban by saying it "will not improve the lot of bees or other pollinators" and instead, it is "a sad day for farmers and a bad deal for ...

Abstract

We cloned and pharmacologically characterized the guinea pig cysteinyl leukotriene (CysLT) 2 receptor (gpCysLT2). gpCysLT2 consists of 317 amino acids with 75.3%, 75.2%, 73.3% identity to those of humans, mice and rats, respectively. The gpCysLT2 gene is highly expressed in the lung, moderately in eosinophils, skin, spleen, stomach, colon, and modestly in the small intestine. CysLTs accelerated the proliferation of gpCysLT2-expressing HEK293. Leukotriene C4 (LTC4) and Leukotriene D4 (LTD4) enhanced the cell proliferation higher than Bay-u9773, a CysLT2 selective partial agonist and a nonselective antagonist for CysLT receptors. Bay-u9773 did not antagonize the cell proliferation by LTC4 and LTD4. Despite the equipotency of the mitogenic effect
Rats were trained in a two-lever food-reinforced operant task to discriminate (+)-amphetamine (1 mg/kg) from saline. After discrimination training stabilized, test doses of (+)-amphetamine (0.0625-2.0 mg/kg), (-)-nicotine (0.1-1.0 mg/kg), or (-)-nornicotine (1-10 mg/kg) were assessed for their ability to substitute for the (+)-amphetamine training dose during brief test sessions in which food reinforcement was withheld. As expected, as the test dose of (+)-amphetamine increased, there was a dose-related increase in drug-appropriate responding, with both 1 and 2 mg/kg test doses substituting fully for the (+)-amphetamine training dose. Both (-)-nicotine and (-)-nornicotine showed partial substitution (approximately 50% drug-appropriate responding) for the (+)-amphetamine training dose, with (-)-nicotine being more potent than (-)-nornicotine. Rate suppressant effects prevented the assessment of higher doses of (-)-nicotine or (-)-nornicotine. Thus, while (-)-nicotine and (-)-nornicotine share ...

The review also delves into areas of study that were not considered by EFSA, such as the impact of neonicotinoids on environmental health. The researchers compile a range of risks to non-target organisms, including the death of beneficial predator populations, the persistence of neonicotinoids in soils, which leads to constant contamination and accumulation over time, to a higher sensitivity of aquatic organisms to neonicotinoids. The authors make the case that, due to this new evidence demonstrating greater risk to bees and the environment, the current moratorium on imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam in Europe should be extended, and that the partial ban should be expanded to other neonic uses.. This review adds merit to the body of research regarding neonicotinoids and their impacts on pollinators and other non-target beneficial species. Neonicotinoids are a class of insecticides that share a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, resulting in ...

Europe, Britain and some U.S. researchers believe new, powerful pesticides known as neonicotinoids, incorporated into the plants themselves could be an important factor in colony collapse disorder.. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) labeled the pesticide clothianidin as being an "unacceptable" danger to bees. EFSA found the Bayer CropScience study self-serving. The EPA has been criticized as the using the Bayer study as its sole basis for neonicotinoid use approval. The study began after the deaths of 300-500 million bees in German, where Bayer CropScience neonicotinoid products are used and where the company is based. The EPA has not banned neonicotinoids so far. Montana follows the EPA.. State Entomologist Cam Lay believes it is an active question whether neonicotinoids subtle sublethal effect on honeybees applies to levels bees encounter in the fields; he feels drought was significant in bee stress and 2012 deaths..

There is widespread concern regarding the effects of agro-chemical exposure on bee health, of which neonicotinoids, systemic insecticides detected in the pollen and nectar of both crops and wildflowers, have been the most strongly debated. The majority of studies examining the effect of neonicotinoids on bees have focussed on social species, namely honey bees and bumble bees. However, most bee species are solitary, their life histories differing considerably from these social species, and thus it is possible that their susceptibility to pesticides may be quite different. Studies that have included solitary bees have produced mixed results regarding the impact of neonicotinoid exposure on survival and reproductive success. While the majority of studies have focused on the effects of adult exposure, bees are also likely to be exposed as larvae via the consumption of contaminated pollen. Here we examined the effect of exposure of Osmia bicornis larvae to a range of field-realistic concentrations (0-10 ppb)

Application of an electric field to liquid crystalline film forming imines with negative dielectric anisotropy, such as N-(4-methoxybenzylidene)-4-butylaniline (MBBA, 1), results in the expulsion of compounds that do not participate in the formation of the liquid crystalline phase. Furthermore, amines and aromatic aldehydes undergo component exchange with the imine by generating constitutional dynamic libraries. The strength of the electric field and the duration of its application to the liquid crystalline film influence the release rate of the expelled compounds and, at the same time, modulate the equilibration of the dynamic libraries. The controlled release of volatile organic molecules with different chemical functionalities from the film was quantified by dynamic headspace analysis. In all cases, higher headspace concentrations were detected in the presence of an electric field. These results point to the possibility of using imine-based liquid crystalline films to build devices for the ...
I have been studying research in the area of natural light and its interaction on the human brain. An important point to make is that appropriate exposure to natural light has positive effects on our circadian rhythm and in turn promotes many aspects of health.. We evolved from exposure to natural day lighting. The sun provides a specific wavelength (blue range) in the early morning that lasts until early afternoon. At that point a different light wavelength is produced (red to orange range). We recently discovered that the retina has a specific photoreceptor that detects light and sends it to a special part of the brain known as the suprachiasm, located near the hypothalamus. Once the suprachiasm is triggered, it sets off the hypothalamus, the master gland that in turn triggers the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands of the brain and body. The hormonal reaction to light is what causes and promotes the diverse actions of the body and health.. The blue range of light helps our bodies become ...
Loss of the exon 4 epitope reduced both [3H]naloxone receptor binding and maximal mu agonist-stimulated [35S]GTPγS binding levels despite the lack of significant changes in mRNA levels. The 12 amino acids encoded by exon 4 contain a MOR-1-derived recycling sequence (MRS) that facilitates recycling of internalized MOR-1 to the plasma membrane following DAMGO treatment in HEK293 cells (29). Loss of the MRS enhanced agonist-induced receptor trafficking to lysosomes for degradation. The loss of the MRS in both mE3M and mE4M homozygous mice corresponds with our observed decreases in receptor sites and [35S]GTPγS stimulation and raises an interesting question of whether the MRS has a similar role under endogenous opioid tone in vivo.. Distal C-terminal sequences markedly affected morphine tolerance, with opposite effects seen between exon 4- and exon 7-associated C-terminal truncation models. This was particularly interesting in view of the lack of change in morphine analgesia among the truncation ...

The use of a class of systemic pesticides called neonicotinoids by farmers.. At present, much of the reporting on CCD is focused on neonicotinoids, which are pesticides that are applied to seeds prior to planting and which then get incorporated into the leaves and flowers of the resulting plant while it grows. There have been several recent studies which suggest that the exposure that bees receive to these chemicals causes a weakening of their immune systems, making them more susceptible to a variety of diseases and perhaps impairing their ability to navigate. The use of neonicotinoids has been banned in several European countries.. So are neonicotinoids the smoking gun for CCD? Perhaps, but let me explain why I am skeptical. Collectively, when we observe sudden change, we humans tend to assume that it must arise from a single cause. What is harder for us to wrap our minds around is that sudden changes can result from a combination of factors of through a process scientists call ...

The U.S. government has noted that the most widely used pesticide in the world is harmful to honeybees. However, in Europe, a ban on the use of the chemical could be lifted.

On 27th April EU member states voted in favour of an almost complete ban on the use of three neonicotinoids (Imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam). It was concluded that no safe outdoor use of these substances could be shown and so use would be restricted to indoor (glasshouse) applications only to limit any exposure to bees. This decision has capped several years of debate on the risk of bees from the use of neonicotinoids and expands on the initial partial ban imposed in 2013 to limit their use on flowering crops.. Neonicotinoids are the most widely used class of insecticides globally and have been a key pest control tool for farmers. There are concerns that this ban will impact the effectiveness of crop protection as farmers become more reliant on other types of potentially more toxic pesticides, allowing pests to develop resistance to them and also having unwanted side-effects on non-target organisms including bees.. At ERM we are actively involved in a range of bee risk assessment ...
Abstract : We assessed the state of knowledge regarding the effects of large-scale pollution with neonicotinoid insecticides and fipronil on non-target invertebrate species of terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments. A large section of the assessment is dedicated to the state of knowledge on sublethal effects on honeybees (Apis mellifera) because this important pollinator is the most studied non-target invertebrate species. Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), Lumbricidae (earthworms), Apoidae sensu lato (bumblebees, solitary bees) and the section "other invertebrates" review available studies on the other terrestrial species. The sections on freshwater and marine species are rather short as little is known so far about the impact of neonicotinoid insecticides and fipronil on the diverse invertebrate fauna of these widely exposed habitats. For terrestrial and aquatic invertebrate species, the known effects of neonicotinoid pesticides and fipronil are described ranging from organismal ...
In recent years, many pollinators have declined in abundance and diversity worldwide, presenting a potential threat to agricultural productivity, biodiversity and the functioning of natural ecosystems. One of the most debated factors proposed to be contributing to pollinator declines is exposure to pesticides, particularly neonicotinoids, a widely used class of systemic insecticide. Also, newly emerging parasites and diseases, thought to be spread via contact with managed honeybees, may pose threats to other pollinators such as bumblebees. Compared to honeybees, bumblebees could be particularly vulnerable to the effects of stressors due to their smaller and more short-lived colonies. Here, we studied the effect of field-realistic, chronic clothianidin exposure and inoculation with the parasite Nosema ceranae on survival, fecundity, sugar water collection and learning using queenless Bombus terrestris audax microcolonies in the laboratory. Chronic exposure to 1 ppb clothianidin had no significant effects
Pharmacotherapy provision based on Nicotine Metabolite Ratio (NMR) status (slow/normal metabolism) may improve smoking cessation rates. However, it is unclear whether NMR status is consistent across patient characteristics and current treatment choice. Data come from 1,826 participants attending Stop Smoking Services (SSS) across England in 2012/13. Sociodemographic, mental/physical health, smoking and treatment characteristics (nicotine replacement therapy vs. other pharmacotherapy; group vs. one-to-one behavioural support) were assessed. Salivary nicotine metabolites were measured and NMR (3-hydroxycotinine/cotinine) computed, characterising smokers as slow (NMR,0.31) or normal (NMR≥0.31) metabolisers. Normal metabolisers were older than slow metabolisers (Odds Ratio (OR) =1.49, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) =1.32-1.69) but no other characteristics were associated with NMR status. Overall, predictors accounted for only 7.3% of NMR variance. In adjusted analysis, pharmacotherapy type was not ...

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has highlighted a potential link between two neonicotinoid insecticides - acetamiprid and imidacloprid - and developmental neurotoxicity in humans.. The announcement came in a scientific opinion delivered by the Authoritys expert Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues at the request of the European Commission following the publication of recent research suggesting a link between these compounds and damage to the developing human brain.. The Panel examined the available data and found that both acetamiprid and imidacloprid could adversely affect the development of brain structures associated with learning and memory. They concluded that the existing guidance levels for exposure to these pesticides may not be adequate and should be reduced pending the results of further research to give a more reliable indication of neurotoxicity.. The Scientific Opinion can be found in full here.. ...
Neonicotinoids are quite effective at killing the pests, but theyre also harmful to non-target pests, namely pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Weve known for some time that neonicotinoids - the class of systemic, bee-harming insecticides - are water soluble. Theyve been detected in surface water in several agriculture-heavy states. And now theyre showing up in Midwestern waters. Last month, the U.S. Geological Survey released a report finding clothianidin, one of the most widely used neonics, in 75% of Midwest streams surveyed. Other common neonics were detected too. Not good news.
UK researchers used data spanning 18 years and 62 wild bee populations to show that neonicotinoid insecticide use has long-term effects on populations.
Are neonics dangerous for bees? Two studies published on the same day reached sharply different conclusions. Guess which one got almost no publicity? Heres why.
Thus, had we merely conducted simple tests of statistical significance, we could correctly have said that the results were not statistically significant in most cases; given the number of simultaneous tests that we had conducted, the few significant exceptions could be discounted. While correct, such statements commonly lead readers of papers (and not infrequently the authors themselves) to conclude that despite an investigation aimed at uncovering evidence there is no evidence for an effect. Authors and readers may then go on to conclude that the lack of evidence indicates that there is no effect. In this respect, Pilling et al. [5] were correct to assert that given that formal analysis of their data "would lack the power to detect anything other than very large treatment effects", a formal analysis "would be potentially misleading".. However, we argue that naïve hypothesis tests are inadequate in cases such as studying the impact of thiamethoxam on honeybees, where we need to know the ...

According to Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe, the European Commission has presented to Member States its draft regulations to ban the neonicotinoids: imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam. Three draft regulations to ban the three bee-toxic neonicotinoids across the entire EU were submitted to the Standing Committee on Plant, Animal, Food and Feed. These will be open to comments from Member States and a first vote on the Commissions proposal could take place in May 2017. The new proposals are for a complete ban on the three neonicotinoid uses in fields, with the only exception being for plants grown in greenhouses. There would need to be a positive vote from 55% of the Member States representing 65% of EU citizens (qualified majority) to implement the proposal.. In 2013, the European Commission voted to suspend the use of the neonicotinoid pesticides for two years in order to protect severely declining and threatened bee populations. The moratorium came several months after the ...
The aphid Myzus persicae is a globally significant crop pest that has evolved high levels of resistance to almost all classes of insecticide. To date, the neonicotinoids, an economically important class of insecticides that target nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), have remained an effective control measure; however, recent reports of resistance in M. persicae represent a threat to the long-term efficacy of this chemical class. In this study, the mechanisms underlying resistance to the neonicotinoid insecticides were investigated using biological, biochemical, and genomic approaches. Bioassays on a resistant M. persicae clone (5191A) suggested that P450-mediated detoxification plays a primary role in resistance, although additional mechanism(s) may also contribute. Microarray analysis, using an array populated with probes corresponding to all known detoxification genes in M. persicae, revealed constitutive over-expression (22-fold) of a single P450 gene (CYP6CY3); and quantitative PCR ...
Sub-lethal effects of dietary neonicotinoid insecticide exposure on honey bee queen fecundity and colony development http://www.nature.com/articles/srep32108 Sub-lethal effects of dietary neonicotinoid insecticide exposure on honey bee queen fecundity and colony development - Judy Wu-Smart ,http://www.nature.com/articles/srep32108#auth-1, - & Marla Spivak ,http://www.nature.com/articles/srep32108#auth-2, - *Scientific Reports* *6*, Article number: 32108 (2016) - doi:10.1038/srep32108 - Download Citation ,http://www.nature.com/articles/srep32108.ris, - - Ecology ,http://www.nature.com/subjects/ecology, - Environmental impact ,http://www.nature.com/subjects/environmental-impact, Received:16 March 2016Accepted:25 July 2016Published online:26 August 2016 Abstract Many factors can negatively affect honey bee (*Apis mellifera* L.) health including the pervasive use of systemic neonicotinoid insecticides. Through direct consumption of contaminated nectar and pollen from treated plants, neonicotinoids ...
A new study appears to have confirmed suspicions that the neonicotinoid group of pesticides is in part responsible for the dramatic decline in UK honeybee numbers, the Telegraph reports.. Insect research charity Buglife and the Soil Association "brought together a number of peer-reviewed pieces of research" which demonstrate that neonicotinoids "damage the health and life cycle of bees over the long term by affecting the nervous system".. Previous scientific tests suggested a possible link between one of the neonicotinoids, imidacloprid, and disruption of honeybees "sophisticated communication and navigation systems". Fears over the chemical earlier this year prompted the Co-op to ban the use of all neonicotinoids on its 70,000 acres of land in in England and Scotland, "until they are shown to be safe".. Germany, Italy and Slovenia last year similarly banned all neonicotinoids in response to the honeybee crisis, while French farmers have not been able to deploy imidacloprid as a sunflower ...
Populations of honey bees and other pollinators have declined worldwide in recent years. A variety of stressors have been implicated as potential causes, including agricultural pesticides. Neonicotinoid insecticides, which are widely used and highly toxic to honey bees, have been found in previous analyses of honey bee pollen and comb material. However, the routes of exposure have remained largely undefined. We used LC/MS-MS to analyze samples of honey bees, pollen stored in the hive and several potential exposure routes associated with plantings of neonicotinoid treated maize. Our results demonstrate that bees are exposed to these compounds and several other agricultural pesticides in several ways throughout the foraging period. During spring, extremely high levels of clothianidin and thiamethoxam were found in planter exhaust material produced during the planting of treated maize seed. We also found neonicotinoids in the soil of each field we sampled, including unplanted fields. Plants visited ...

Adenosine is a multi-functional physiological molecule found abundantly in the body. It is one of the important components of ATP cellular energy metabolism. Adenosine has diverse actions as a ligand on many different types of cells and tissues acting via specific receptors. Currently, four subtypes of adenosine receptors are described, namely, the A1, A2A, A2B and A3 receptors. Neuroblastoma, mostly found in young children, is a malignant tumor derived from peripheral neurons in the body. Several different types of neuroblastoma cell lines of human origin have been established and contributed to the studies of neuroblastoma itself, neuronal differentiation, neurotransmitters, alcoholism, Alzheimers disease and other neuronal diseases and disorders. In 1987, it was shown by Abbracchio et al. that a human neuroblastoma cell line, IMR32, could be induced to differentiate into cells that have a more neuronal morphology, with long neurites, by an adenosine receptor agonist ...
exon 3 (mE3M mice), while the other two selectively truncated C-terminal tails encoded by either exon 4 (mE4M mice) or exon 7 (mE7M mice). Studies of these mice revealed divergent roles for the C termini in morphine-induced behaviors, highlighting the importance of C-terminal variants in complex morphine actions. In mE7M-B6 mice, the exon 7-associated truncation diminished morphine tolerance and reward without altering physical dependence, whereas the exon 4-associated truncation in mE4M-B6 mice facilitated morphine tolerance and reduced morphine dependence without affecting morphine reward. mE7M-B6 mutant mice lost morphine-induced receptor desensitization in the brain stem and hypothalamus, consistent with exon 7 involvement in morphine tolerance. In cell-based studies, exon 7-associated variants shifted the bias of several mu opioids toward β-arrestin 2 over G protein activation compared with the exon 4-associated variant, suggesting an interaction of exon 7-associated C-terminal tails with ...

The neuropeptide Arginine vasopressin (AVP), also known as argipressin or antidiuretic hormone (ADH), is a hormone found in humans. It is mainly released when the body is low on water; it stimulates water reabsorption in the kidneys. It performs diverse actions when released in the brain, and has been implicated in memory formation, aggression, blood pressure regulation, and temperature regulation. Similar vassopressins are found in other mammalian species.. In recent years, there has been particular interest in the role of vasopressin in social behavior. It is thought that vasopressin, released into the brain during sexual activity, initiates and sustains patterns of activity that support the pair-bond between the sexual partners; in particular, vasopressin seems to induce the male to become aggressive towards other males. Evidence for this connection comes from experimental studies on several species which indicate that the precise distribution of vasopressin and vasopressin receptors in the ...
One of the most challenging tasks for a synthetic organic chemist today, is the development of chemo, regio, and stereoselective methodologies toward the total synthesis of macromolecules. r . The objective of my thesis was to develop methodologies towards this end. The first part of my project was to develop highly functionalized chirons from D-glucose, a cheap, chiral starting material, to be utilized in this capacity. The second part of the project dealt with modifying the carbon-carbon bond forming Suzuki reaction, which is utilized quite often as a means of combining molecular sub units in total synthesis applications. As previously stated the first area of the project was to develop high value chirons from D-glucose, but the mechanism of their formation was also investigated. The free radical initiated oxidative fragmentation of benzylidene acetals was investigated through the use of several test-case substrates in order to unravel the possible mechanistic pathways. This was performed by ...
The present invention provides a group of tobacco alkaloids, tobacco extract, Yerbamat extract, and an extract of chewing gum and lozenges which are modulators of monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity (i.e., compounds and substances which inhibit MAO enzyme and prevent its biological activity). The MAO inhibitors of the present invention can cause an increase in the level of norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin in the brain and other tissues, and thus can cause a wide variety of pharmacological effects mediated by their effects on these compounds. The MAO inhibitors of the present invention are useful for a variety of therapeutic applications, such as the treatment of depression, disorders of attention and focus, mood and emotional disorders, Parkinsons disease, extrapyramidal disorders, hypertension, substance abuse, smoking substitution, antidepression therapy, eating disorders, withdrawal syndromes, and the cessation of smoking.
Last week, the European Commission announced its position against the use of bee-harming neonicotinoid insecticides, urging nations within the European Union (EU) to impose a two-year suspension on their use. Great news for bees across the pond. But here in the U.S., policymakers arent stepping up. EPA officials are continuing to ignore the emerging body of science that point to pesticides, and especially neonicotinoid insecticides, as a critical factor in bee declines. Whats worse, the agency is poised to approve yet another bee-harming pesticide.
The synthesis of 4-[(E)-(-2,5- dimethoxybenzylidene)amino] benzoic acid Schiff base, SBDAB was carried out inorder to determine its inhibitory efficiency at higher temperature using weight loss and gasometric techniques. The results showed that the inhibition efficiency of the studied Schiff base increased with increase in temperature for the corrosion of mild steel which suggests chemisorption reaction mechanism. The negative free energy of adsorption obtained confirms a spontaneous adsorption of the Schiff base on the metal surface. The positive values of the heat of adsorption suggest an endothermic reaction. The positive values of the entropy of adsorption suggest a disordered system. The Langmuir adsorption Isotherm result showed a deviation from an ideal Langmuir adsorption isotherm equation, this is due to the interaction of the inhibitor molecules with one another. The inhibition efficiency of 35.20% and 35.31% was obtained for the weight loss and gasometric techniques respectively. The ...
In Massachusetts, a bill that would restrict the use of neonicotinoid insecticides such as imidacloprid has been favorably voted out of the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture and referred to the House Ways and Means Committee.. At first blush, House Bill 4041 only places minimal restrictions on licensed applicators, but upon further review this bill relies upon definitions of "agricultural use" and "horticultural use" contained in a separate law (Mass. General Laws Ch. 61a) that deals with the assessment and taxation of farm lands.. These definitions do not allow for use by landscapers in the maintenance of lawns, trees or ornamentals as they would prohibit the application of any neonicotinoid during the "blooming season" which the bill defines as the period of time between March 1st and October 31st.. Under this legislation, applicators following label directions, integrated pest management guidelines and best management practices would therefore be precluded from ...

RATIONALE Neonicotinoids (NNIs) are the fastest expanding group of pesticides in the world over the last two decades; however, they may be a significant contributing factor to bee mortality. The widespread use of NNIs makes it critical to monitor their residuals in the environment. Published methods for NNI analysis are mainly focused on agricultural and food products, and many of them only measured a portion of the commercially available NNIs. METHODS Utilizing a biphenyl stationary-phase column, a sensitive liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) method was developed to determine eight NNIs, including acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, flonicamid, imidacloprid, nitempyram, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam in environmental water. Two multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) transitions were monitored for each compound to ascertain true positive identification. Isotope-labelled NNIs, d3-acetamiprid, d3-clothianidin, d4-imidacloprid and d3-thiamethoxam, were used to compensate for
For centuries, mushrooms have been regarded in the East as supreme health tonics. In natural food stores, mushrooms are carving out a niche as unique dietary supplements apart from vitamins and botanicals. Thousands of scientific studies demonstrate their unmatched ability to support immunity, cardiovascular health, blood sugar, sexual function and energy. In numerous experiments and clinical trials, mushrooms have also demonstrated antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic actions.. You might be surprised that certain mushrooms can be effective treatments for allergies and other respiratory problems. But when you look at their diverse actions, it makes perfect sense since mushrooms address several underlying factors involved in the allergic response.. Allergy, stems from a hypersensitivity to substances in the environment that, in most individuals, cause no problem. These environmental substances, known as allergens, are inhaled or penetrate the skin. The most common ...
I end my considerations with two quotes that speak for themselves. The first is from Jon Entine, editor of the Genetic Literacy Project and an opponent of a ban on neonicotinoids: There is a tendency in the science media to report on studies, no matter how weak, that suggest problems rather than ones that reaffirm current practices as safe. The other is from Randy Oliver, the environmentalist, beekeeper and biologist who has done much work to unravel misconceptions about neonicotinoids: When emotion trumps science, what are farmers and the Plant Protection Product industry supposed to do? It takes millions of dollars to bring a new product to market - including the newer generation biopesticides and reduced-risk pesticides. Why should industry invest if their hard work all goes up in smoke as the result of an irrationally fearful public campaign?. Read Complete Article. ...
BACKGROUND: Oxalate exposure produces oxidant stress in renal epithelial cells leading to death of some cells and adaptation of others. The pathways involved in these diverse actions remain unclear, but appear to involve activation of phospholipase A2 (PLA2) and redistribution of membrane phospholipids. The present studies examined the possibility that oxalate actions may also involve increased accumulation of ceramide, a lipid-signaling molecule implicated in a variety of pathways, including those leading to apoptotic cell death. METHODS: Ceramide accumulation was examined in renal epithelial cells from pig kidney (LLC-PK1 cells) and from dog kidney [Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK cells)] using the diacylglycerol kinase assay. Sphingomyelin degradation was assessed by monitoring the disappearance of 3H-sphingomyelin from cells that had been prelabeled with [3H]-choline. The effects of oxalate were compared with those of other oxidants (peroxide, xanthine/xanthine oxidase), other organic acids (formate

Signal Transduction Reagents - Agonists - Alfa AesarSignal Transduction Reagents - Agonists - Alfa Aesar

|p|Agonists are substances that activate cellular receptor molecules to which they attach. In a nutshell, agonists bind to cellular receptors and elicit a biological response. The agonists enhance the signal transduction by binding to the receptor in cellular systems. They can be full agonists, activating the receptor to maximal activity, or partial agonists. There are also inverse agonists. These ligands bind receptors and cause the reverse biological response of the natural ligand. Alfa Aesar supplies receptor agonists for many different cellular protein receptors. These reagents include both natural receptor ligands as well as synthetic agonists. In addition, the conformational changes brought about by the agonists activate or increase the activation of secondary intracellular messenger.|/p|
