Screening for antimicrobial activity of ten medicinal plants used in Colombian folkloric medicine: a possible alternative in the treatment of non-nosocomial infections. (1/5)

BACKGROUND: The antimicrobial activity and Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of the extracts of Bidens pilosa L., Bixa orellana L., Cecropia peltata L., Cinchona officinalis L., Gliricidia sepium H.B. & K, Jacaranda mimosifolia D.Don, Justicia secunda Vahl., Piper pulchrum C.DC, P. paniculata L. and Spilanthes americana Hieron were evaluated against five bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus beta hemolitic, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Escherichia coli), and one yeast (Candida albicans). These plants are used in Colombian folk medicine to treat infections of microbial origin. METHODS: Plants were collected by farmers and traditional healers. The ethanol, hexane and water extracts were obtained by standard methods. The antimicrobial activity was found by using a modified agar well diffusion method. All microorganisms were obtained from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC). MIC was determined in the plant extracts that showed some efficacy against the tested microorganisms. Gentamycin sulfate (1.0 microg/ml), clindamycin (0.3 microg/ml) and nystatin (1.0 microg/ml) were used as positive controls. RESULTS: The water extracts of Bidens pilosa L., Jacaranda mimosifolia D.Don, and Piper pulchrum C.DC showed a higher activity against Bacillus cereus and Escherichia coli than gentamycin sulfate. Similarly, the ethanol extracts of all species were active against Staphylococcus aureus except for Justicia secunda. Furthermore, Bixa orellana L, Justicia secunda Vahl. and Piper pulchrum C.DC presented the lowest MICs against Escherichia coli (0.8, 0.6 and 0.6 microg/ml, respectively) compared to gentamycin sulfate (0.9 8 g/ml). Likewise, Justicia secunda and Piper pulchrum C.DC showed an analogous MIC against Candida albicans (0.5 and 0.6 microg/ml, respectively) compared to nystatin (0.6 microg/ml). Bixa orellana L, exhibited a better MIC against Bacillus cereus (0.2 microg/ml) than gentamycin sulfate (0.5 microg/ml). CONCLUSION: This in vitro study corroborated the antimicrobial activity of the selected plants used in folkloric medicine. All these plants were effective against three or more of the pathogenic microorganisms. However, they were ineffective against Streptococcus beta hemolytic and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Their medicinal use in infections associated with these two species is not recommended. This study also showed that Bixa orellana L, Justicia secunda Vahl. and Piper pulchrum C.DC could be potential sources of new antimicrobial agents.  (+info)

The good news is that Velcro is not toxic to dogs. However, it has the potential to make them very sick. This is because Velcro could bunch up in the intestines and cause an obstruction.. The key here is the size of your dog and how much Velcro hes eaten. If you have a small dog who has eaten a very small piece of Velcro, chances are he will be OK. The Velcro piece will eventually make it out into your dogs poop. However, if a small dog eats a lot of Velcro, he could develop an intestinal blockage.. The same goes for a large dog. If the dog eats a small piece of Velcro, hell be OK. However, if he eats a larger amount, he could run into the same problem as the smaller dog-an intestinal blockage.. ...

It has been known for centuries that microorganisms are ubiquitous in the atmosphere, where they are capable of long-distance dispersal. Likewise, it is well-established that these airborne bacteria and fungi can have myriad effects on human health, as well as the health of plants and livestock. However, we have a limited understanding of how these airborne communities vary across different geographic regions or the factors that structure the geographic patterns of near-surface microbes across large spatial scales. We collected dust samples from the external surfaces of ∼1,200 households located across the United States to understand the continental-scale distributions of bacteria and fungi in the near-surface atmosphere. The microbial communities were highly variable in composition across the United States, but the geographic patterns could be explained by climatic and soil variables, with coastal regions of the United States sharing similar airborne microbial communities. Although people ...

If the velcro straps are too short, then the nucleophile (strap) cant reach the electrophile (on the shoe). If the velcro straps are too long (imagine if they were each a foot long, for instance!) , then the shoes will be annoying to put on because of the decreasing likelihood that the nucleophile will be in the vicinity of the electrophile (an example of low effective concentration). The rate of formation for very large rings will approach the rate of intermolecular reactions.. Of course molecules are more complicated than belts (or velcro straps) because of the ideal 109° angles of tetrahedral carbons. That creates some additional complexity, notably the issue of ring strain. For example you are probably aware by this point that 3 and 4 membered rings are quite strained, whereas rings of size 5, 6, and 7 are relatively unstrained. If youre just starting out youre likely unaware that rings of size 8-11 are strained for a very interesting reason (transannular strain - not going to discuss ...
The existence of a significant simultaneous correlation between bimonthly mean precipitation anomalies over southeastern South America (SESA) and either the first or the second (depending on season) leading mode of interannual variability of upper-level wind over South America (SA) is demonstrated during all seasons except winter. The pattern associated with these modes of variability is similar during all seasons and consists of a continental-scale vortex centered over the eastern coast of subtropical SA. The vortex has a quasi-barotropic structure during all seasons, and its variability modifies moisture transport from the South American low-level jet and the western tropical Atlantic to SESA thus creating precipitation anomalies in this region. During spring (October-November) and summer (January-February) the circulation creates a second center of precipitation anomalies over the South Atlantic convergence zone that are of opposite sign to those over SESA, while during fall (April-May) ...

The Knightsbridge Dual Band uses 6 materials plus Velcro and is an assembly of 22 different pieces. All six materials and the full cap design are necessary to provide the vertical lift and compound elastic-non elastic pressure functionalities and also be comfortable. The elastic and non-elastic straps produce a compound force curve that allows the pressure to be minimized. For the cap to be durable yet also light and breathable, it has the three-layer net-mesh construction. Since a full cap is required to balance the vertical forces at the front, and because it needs to fit heads of various sizes and shapes, the cap is constructed of three panels and has a rear size-adjustment strap. Because the cap and a portion of the Velcro (which is a somewhat stiff material) covers the ears, there is an interior soft grey felt lining to make that comfortable. And to provide comfort for wear over months or years, the entire perimeter of the cap is also lined ...

While Hyalophora cecropia larvae are large and feed on a wide range of host plants, this species is not considered a serious pest in any parts of its range. Some populations of Hyalophora cecropia may be in decline due to a number of factors, including nontarget effects of introduced biological control agents. Boettner et al. (2000) suggested that the generalist parasitoid fly Compsilura concinnata (Diptera: Tachinidae) may be responsible for such declines in the northeastern U.S. Due to its size and hardiness, Hyalophora cecropia has been used extensively in physiological and biochemical research. Carroll Williams conducted pioneering work on juvenile hormone and its role in molting and metamorphosis using this species. Owing to its impressive size and appearance, Hyalophora cecropia has become a favorite of collectors and amateur Lepidopterists. Eggs and pupae are commercially available, and a small livestock industry has developed around this and other related species. ...

Climate change has led to concerns about increasing river floods resulting from the greater water-holding capacity of a warmer atmosphere1. These concerns are reinforced by evidence of increasing economic losses associated with flooding in many parts of the world, including Europe2. Any changes in river floods would have lasting implications for the design of flood protection measures and flood risk zoning. However, existing studies have been unable to identify a consistent continental-scale climatic-change signal in flood discharge observations in Europe3, because of the limited spatial coverage and number of hydrometric stations. Here we demonstrate clear regional patterns of both increases and decreases in observed river flood discharges in the past five decades in Europe, which are manifestations of a changing climate. Our results-arising from the most complete database of European flooding so far-suggest that: increasing autumn and winter rainfall has resulted in increasing floods in ...

UPDATED: MANCHESTER - MANCHESTER - It took firefighters about three hours to stop a leak in an 8,000 gallon tank of ammonia Thursday morning at Velcro USA but no one was injured and no one was endangered, according to a fire official.
Being flat-chested, the tube top was too small. Not enough fabric to make a pillow/cushion cover. The muumuu was too big. (Although I might save it for a mattress cover upcycling project!) That left the mini-skirt. It was perfect! I stole an extra pillow insert I had lying around the guest room closet, found a yard of double-sided sticky-back Velcro in the kitchen junk drawer and twirled into the living room to start my project. It literally took me 10 minutes. I placed the Velcro on the front and back waistline of the skirt, flipped it inside out to hide the Velcro seams, stuffed the pillow insert into the skirt, then sealed up the front and back hem with Velcro. After transforming my mini-skirt into a pillow, I thought, Damn, Herman, this is too cute for my busted-up sofa. Im gonna sell it on Etsy! For real ...

Immediately after emerging from the pupa the moths mate, lay eggs and die. Our Breathing Planet · Privacy and Cookies · Legal Notice · Sitemap, Show your support for the amazing places and species we raise awareness of by, We try to make caring for our planet a viral cause. [2] Cecropia moth larvae are most commonly found on maple trees, but they have also been found on cherry and birch trees among many others. Interestingly, the moth has no mouth or digestive system. You can tell this is a male, mainly by his HUGE antennae. Females begin calling around 2:00a.m. When the caterpillars hatch, they are black in color. The abdomen has alternating bands of red and white.[6]. Some think the eyespots and patterns on the upper tips of a cecropias wings look like snakes heads. Signature: Bert Their coloration is due to small black hairs growing from tubercles (small projections) all over their body. Your email address will not be published. Here are some photos to help you see the difference. Due ...
1. The net flux of 45Ca from lumen to blood side across the isolated and short-circuited Cecropia midgut was 1-9 +/− 0-2 muequiv. cm-2h-1 in 8 mM Ca and the flux ratio was as high as 56 to 1. 2. The calcium influx was depressed by anoxia; 73% after 30 min. 3. The kinetics of Ca transport were anomalous; the apparent Km varied with Ca concentration from less than 0-2 to greater than 5-6 mM Ca and the apparent Vmax varied from less than 1-3 to greater than 3-3 muequiv. cm-2h-1. 4. The calcium influx showed a delay before the tracer steady state was attained, indicating the existence in the transport route of a calcium pool equivalent to 5-7 muequiv/g. wet weight of midgut tissue. 5 High calcium (16 mM) depressed the short-circuit current and potassium transport from blood to lumen side across the midgut. 6. Calcium depressed magnesium transport, from lumen to blood side across the midgut, and magnesium depressed the calcium transport. 7. Ca transport by the midgut does not regulate the Ca level ...
I recently bought Jack some pedoodle shoes because they are pretty eco friendly. They use recycled leather and rubber which is nice and are supposed to have flexible soles. They also have velcro which is really easy to use and are pretty wide which is good for baby feet.. I think that pedoodles are great for people who want a more structured shoe, and would be better for slightly older toddlers, maybe at least 2-3 years old. I think at 18 months Jack still needs shoes that are more flexible. The leather upper part is not very flexible, so I think shoes like the Soft Star ones with very soft leather are ideal for where Jack is now. He was also able to pull off the velcro tabs but I imagine thats the case with most velcro shoes. From my shoe experience so far (weve tried a lot of brands!), this is what I think worked best for us and what Id do with a future child:. 0-12 months: no shoes until baby starts walking. We just used socks with the skid-proof bottoms.. 12 months-15 months (starting to ...

The Babybellyband® grows with mom. Pregnancy is unpredictable in terms of how your body will react. Some women stay petite, others gain hip and weight (hopefully, your having a baby) and the size of the baby is also an unpredictable factor (my petite 54″ sister had an 11.5 lb. baby). To accommodate for this I custom designed the fabric of the Babybellyband® with total Velcro compatibility all over the abdominal band. What this means is that no matter how large a womans belly or hips grow or not, the Babybellyband® will grow with her. All other support products have a limited Velcro adjustability. They may not fit for the entire length of a pregnancy.. Pregnancy complications are unpredictable. I was athletic and in great shape, yet I developed inguinal hernias. My sister developed horribly painful vulvar varicosities. The Babybellyband® is prepared to support any discomfort. Total Velcro compatibility of the abdominal band means that the shoulder and groin bands can be added to the ...
Lead isotopes are studied to determine possible sources of lead in aqueous environments and mixing of different waters, and to elucidate groundwater flow paths. The method has been applied in numerous and various cases, for example in anthropogenic contamination studies, such as gasoline-contamination (Landmeyer et al. 2003) and in traffic-related pollution (Walraven et al. 2014), in mineral exploration (De Caritat et al. 2005), in studying an impact of local contamination in continental-scale and in mapping natural geochemical background (Reimann et al. 2012), in determining impact of historical mining in the environment (Camizuli et al. 2014), and in studying water-rock interaction (Négrel et al. 2010). The history of environmental lead isotope studies is described, for example, by Dickin (2005).. Lead has four stable isotopes (natural abundance in brackets); 204Pb (1.4%), 206Pb (24.1%), 207Pb (22.1%), and 208Pb (52.4%). The last three of them are radiogenic, and are produced from the ...
