The in vitro antioxidant activity of aqueous extracts prepared from four Cyclopia spp. (unfermented and fermented) was assessed using radical (ABTS •+) scavenging, ferric ion reduction, and inhibition of Fe 2+-induced microsomal lipid peroxidation as criteria. Aqueous extracts of unfermented and fermented Aspalathus linearis (rooibos) and Camellia sinensis teas (green, oolong, and black) were included as reference samples. Qualitative and quantitative differences in phenolic composition were demonstrated for the Cyclopia spp. The xanthone glycoside, a.k.a. mangiferin, was the major monomeric polyphenol present in the Cyclopia extracts, with both unfermented and fermented C. genistoides extracts containing the highest quantities. Fermentation resulted in a significant reduction in extract yields and their total polyphenol and individual polyphenol contents. Unfermented plant material should preferentially be used for preparation of extracts, as fermentation significantly (P < 0.05) lowered ...

BACKGROUND: Exposure of zebrafish embryos to a number of teratogens results in cyclopia, but little is known about the underlying molecular changes. METHODS: Using zebrafish embryos, we compare the effects cyclopamine, forskolin, and ethanol delivered starting just before gastrulation, on gene expression in early axial tissues and forebrain development. RESULTS: Although all three teratogens suppress gli1 expression, they do so with variable kinetics, suggesting that while suppression of Shh signaling is a common outcome of these three teratogens, it is not a common cause of the cyclopia. Instead, all teratogens studied produce a series of changes in the expression of gsc and six3b present in early axial development, as well as a later suppression of neural crest cell marker dlx3b. Ethanol and forskolin, but not cyclopamine, exposure reduced anterior markers, which most likely contributes to the cyclopic phenotype. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that each teratogen exposure leads to a unique ...

It has been recognized for some time that blocking of the Hh pathway in embryogenesis may lead to holoprosencephaly, which includes incomplete cleavage of the forebrain, cyclopia, midline clefting of the lip, palate, and nose. Holoprosencephaly is a genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous disorder. One of the gene loci, HPE3, maps to the terminal band of chromosome 7. Extensive physical mapping studies have established a critical interval for HPE3, and subsequently identified the SHH gene as the prime candidate for the disorder (16).. If upregulation of Hh signaling leads to BCC, both sporadic and inherited, could inhibition of Hh signaling be useful as a treatment for these cancers? In 1971, a report was published describing an epidemic of cyclopia in lambs traced to pregnant ewes ingesting Veratrum californicum (California corn lily; ref. 17). The responsible compounds were identified and named cyclopamine and jervine. It is now known that the teratogenic effects of these compounds are ...
One-Eyed Anomaly. Talk about a one-of-a-kind discovery-an extremely rare cyclops shark (pictured) has been confirmed in Mexico, new research shows.. The 22-inch-long (56-centimeter-long) fetus has a single, functioning eye at the front of its head-the hallmark of a congenital condition called cyclopia, which occurs in several animal species, including humans.. Earlier this year fisher Enrique Lucero León legally caught a pregnant dusky shark near Cerralvo Island (see map) in the Gulf of California. When León cut open his catch, he found the odd-looking male embryo along with its nine normal siblings. He said, Thats incredible-wow, said biologist Felipe Galván-Magaña, of the Interdisciplinary Center of Marine Sciences in La Paz, Mexico.. Once Galván-Magaña and colleague Marcela Bejarano-Álvarez heard about the discovery-which was put on Facebook-the team got Leóns permission to borrow the shark for research. The scientists then x-rayed the fetus and reviewed previous research on ...
Holoprosencephaly (HPE) covers a nearly continuous spectrum of midline abnormalities ranging from unmistakable cyclopia with absence of forebrain separation to mild microforms, such a single central incisor.. The objective of these studies is to identify genetic factors (coding and non-coding) that contribute to the pathogenesis of holoprosencephaly (HPE) or related brain malformations. Our approach involves common genetic strategies including mutational analysis of candidate genes. All individuals with overt or subtle clinical findings consistent with the HPE spectrum are eligible to participate. Mutational analysis of our entire coded collection of HPE probands (approximately 600 cases) in selected genes is the principal research method used to determine that a given candidate gene is commonly mutated in HPE. This approach pertains to an individual gene(s) or genetic element(s) as well as to targeted capture panels that study gene sets of hundreds of developmental genes whose involvement in ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of opium addiction on the secretion of IL-4, IFN-γ, IL-6 and TGF-β under in vivo and in vitro conditions. The blood samples were collected and PBMCs were cultured in RPMI1640 with and without opium for 48 h. The levels of the cytokines were measured using ELISA technique. The results showed that plasma levels of IL-4 and IFN-γ were significantly lower and IL-6 and TGF-β were higher in plasma taken from opium-addicted subjects. The concentrations of all the cytokines in opium-addicted subjects in in vitro condition were significantly lower than the control group ...

&nbsp;April Siesta!Tea Description: I have a confession (although, for anyone who has read many of my reviews from back when I was a&nbsp;tea reviewer - this probably isn't much of a confession) - I'm not particularly fond of chamomile. Oh, I'll drink it (on a rare occasion) but it's not a tea/tisane that I'll grab enthusiastically. It's not something I'll brew every day - I certainly don't like it that much.&nbsp;That said, I don't hate it either. I'm just kinda 'meh' about it. Not my favorite thing - you know?I've crafted one blend with chamomile during my time as the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas -&nbsp;At Play in the Fields of Love - which I blended as a VIT for a special customer. Now, I'm crafting my second chamomile blend - and I'm blending it with one of my very favorite flavors: Licorice!

We present a planar chromatographic separation method for the phytoestrogenic active compound equol, separated on RP-18 W (Merck, 1.14296) phase. It could be shown that an ethanolic cattle manure extract contains this phytoestrogenic active compound to a larger amount. As solvents for the mobile phase, hexane, ethyl acetate, and acetone (45:15:10, v/v); acetone and water (15:10, v/v); and n-hexane, CH2Cl2, ethyl acetate, methanol, and formic acid (40:40:20:5:1, v/v) have been used. After separation, a modified yeast estrogen screen (YES) test was applied, using the yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae BJ3505 containing an estrogen receptor. Its activation by equol induces the reporter gene lacZ which encodes the enzyme β-galactosidase. The enzyme activity is measured directly on the TLC plate by using the substrate MUG (4-methylumbelliferyl-β-d-galactopyranoside) or the substrate X-β-Gal (5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indoxyl-β-d-galactopyranoside). β-Galactosidase cleaves MUG into a fluorescing ...
Holoprosencephaly is an abnormality of brain development that also affects the head and face. Normally, the brain divides into two halves (hemispheres) during early development. Holoprosencephaly occurs when the brain fails to divide properly into the right and left hemispheres. There are four types of holoprosencephaly according to the degree of brain division. From most to least severe, the types are known as alobar, semi-lobar, lobar, and middle interhemispheric variant (MIHV). The most severely affected individuals have one central eye (cyclopia) and a tubular nasal structure (proboscis) located above the eye. In the less severe forms, the brain is partially divided and the eyes are usually set close together (hypotelorism). Holoprosencephaly can be caused by mutations in a single gene, chromosome abnormalities, or substances that cause birth defects (teratogens ...
A farmer was baffled after his sheep gave birth to a mutant one-eyed black lamb.. Pipih, 65, said the mother and its other babies were normal except for this one born with Cyclopia at the rural property in West Java, Indonesia on June 22.. The lamb had difficulty breathing and eating because of its deformed face so Pipih sought help from neighbours, but some believed that it might be unlucky.. Pipih said: I didnt expect it to birth a lamb with one eye. I take care of my sheep and none of them have any diseases.. The farmer was told that his lamb might be a demon disguising itself as a goat, a reincarnation of the religious character Dajjal.. But the farmer believed otherwise. He added: The mother gave birth to two lambs. The other one is normal. I hope this will be a good sign and bring blessings to the family.. Despite the extra attention given to the lamb, it died two days later on June 24 after it was born because it struggled to eat.. Village official Cucu Sunarya said they visited ...

Abstract: Goat farming in the northeastern regions of Brazil plays an important role in the socio-economic functions of the country. However, high rates of morbidity and mortality occur in the animals, caused primarily by infectious diseases like caseous lymphadenitis, which is widespread in goat herds; this causes serious economic losses to the farming business. Although events such as animal fairs are common in the region, wherein most of the goats and sheep are sold, the risk of disease transmission remains, since the health condition of the animal is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of anti-Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis antibodies present in the goats sold at the animal fair of Tabira - PE, Northeastern semi-arid. Serum samples from 233 goats were collected from the period of November 2014 to June 2015. The diagnosis of infection by C. pseudotuberculosis was made using the indirect ELISA technique. The number of goats seropositive for C. pseudotuberculosis ...
Phenolic composition of virgin olive oil is determined by the enzymatic and/or chemical reactions that take place during olive fruit processing. Of these enzymes, β-glucosidase activity plays a key role in the transformation of the phenolic glycosides present in the olive fruit, generating different secoiridoid derivatives. The main goal of the present study was to characterize olive fruit β-glucosidase genes and enzymes responsible for the phenolic composition of virgin olive oil. To achieve that, we have isolated an olive β-glucosidase gene from cultivar Picual (OepGLU), expressed in Nicotiana benthamiana leaves and purified its corresponding recombinant enzyme. Western blot analysis showed that recombinant OepGLU protein is detected by an antibody raised against the purified native olive mesocarp β-glucosidase enzyme, and exhibits a deduced molecular mass of 65.0 kDa. The recombinant OepGLU enzyme showed activity on the main olive phenolic glycosides, with the highest levels toward oleuropein,

Some villagers believe the goat, that was born in Assam in India, is sacred and have begun to worship it after it was born a week ago. Vets predicted that the goat, which also only has one ear, would die within a few days but it has defied the odds so far.. People have been visiting the village to see the kid which suffers from a condition seen in other animals including horses, pigs, cows and cats. The condition which causes the defect is called cyclopia and occurs when the two hemispheres of the brain do not separate. ...

BACKGROUND: Microbial infections and resulting inflammation and oxidative stress are common pathogenesis of gastrointestinal tract (GIT) disorders. In South Africa, several species of the genus Maytenus are used in traditional medicine to treat various infectious diseases. Most of the previous work on this genus was focused on nonpolar extracts from the root and bark. In this study, leaf extracts of polar extracts of Maytenus peduncularis, Maytenus procumbens, Maytenus senegalensis and Maytenus undata were evaluated for antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities to determine their efficacy as therapeutic agents in GIT disorders. METHODS: Phenolic-enriched leaf extracts and fractions were prepared by extracting with acidified 70% methanol and solvent-solvent fractionation. The activities of the fractions against Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecalis as well as clinical isolates of Aspergillus fumigatus, Candida albicans and ...
Still, Im willing to answer, but before I do I would like the same clarification that Diogenes does, because I at least see no reason to reject it out of hand and would therefore need to see how the concept is applied in practice. What specifically am I meant to be agreeing or disagreeing with? Crucial questions would need to be answered, like did the family consent and is the child self-aware, and if so was he or she consulted for his or her views and made to understand what accepting euthanasia would entail. If its a case of doctors euthanizing a newborn at the familys request because the newborn had a major developmental disorder that would invariably kill it within days or weeks (e.g. anencephaly or cyclopia), that would strike me as morally a different matter than doctors deciding on their own account to euthanize a baby just because it might grow up deaf, for example ...
Mutations within either the gene or the related pathway elements are the most typical, and greatest understood, pathogenetic adjustments seen in holoprosencephaly sufferers; this known simple truth is consistent with the fundamental functions of the gene during forebrain development and patterning. 6-8% of heterozygous sequence-detectable holoprosencephaly (HPE) related hereditary deviation (Orioli et al., 2001; Dubourg et al., 2004, 2007). 329-65-7 IC50 Additionally, oftentimes the molecular alteration presents being a familial type, including many generations often, where its relevant phenotypic spectrum is extremely variable among mutation carriers clinically. Clinical results can prolong from cyclopia, on the serious extreme, to much FLJ31945 less serious conditions including various kinds recognizable microforms like the solitary median maxillary central incisor symptoms (SMMCI; find Nanni et al., 2001; Marini et al., 2003; Garavelli et al., 2004; evaluated in El-Jaick et al., 2007a), or ...
Materials and Methods: Methanol was used as the extraction solvent. The total phenolic content was calculated using Folin-Ciocalteau method and phenolic composition was determined by HPLC. The radical scavenging activity of plant was evaluated in vitro based on the reduction of the stable DPPH free radical. The reducing capacity was identified by using the FRAP method.

1Department of Community Nutrition FEMA IPB and Faculty of Health Sciences URINDO, 2Department of Community Nutrition FEMA, IPB, 3Center of Aging Studies, Universitas Indonesia, 4Department of Sports Exercise and Health Sciences, Loughborough University, UK.. Abstract. Oestrogens have been found to reduce beta amyloid levels, a risk factor associated with dementia. We hypothesised that phytoestrogenic soybean products such as tempe and tofu might show similar effects. The aims of this study were to analyse the effect of tempe and tofu flour on beta amyloid1-40 serum levels in elderly rats. This research was conducted on white female Sprague Dawley strain rats, aged 12 months. Before the intervention rats underwent ovariectomy (OVx) and were grouped into 5 intervention groups which were given either: tempe flour (PTp), tofu flour (PTh), oestradiol (PE), or casein (KK) in pellets; and there was also a non OVx (KN) control group which was fed a normal diet. The intake of tempe and tofu flour ...
This is an interesting thread. I have been growing tomatoes unsuccessfully now for about 5 years. I have come around to the conclusion that the reason for my lack of success is that the plants were getting scorched by the sun. This year I have bought a packet of coolglass shading from Homebase which I will paint onto the apex . This, I hope, is the solution to my problem. It is interesting though as my father has an older glasshouse which is southfacing and very warm and he has never had a problem with scorching. Is it to do with the fact, I wonder that his is higher than mine or is it to do with newer glass vs older glass. ...
SCOPE Blackcurrants (Ribes nigrum L., Grossulariaceae) contain high amounts of anthocyanin polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic health benefits. This study analyzed the potential phytoestrogenic effects of blackcurrant extract (BCE) in breast cancer (MCF-7) and human endometrial cancer (Ishikawa) cell lines that over-express estrogen receptor alpha (ERα), as well as in immature female rats. METHODS AND RESULTS Microarray analysis and Ingenuity® Pathway Analysis showed that BCE activated the ERα pathway, whereas quantitative-PCR confirmed that BCE and four types of anthocyanins up-regulated genes downstream of ERα. BCE (0.1-1.0 μg/mL) and anthocyanins (0.1-10 μM) induced MCF-7 cell proliferation; however, this effect was blocked by ER antagonist fulvestrant. Flow cytometry showed that anthocyanins reduced and increased the number of MCF-7 cells in the G0/G1 and G2/M phases, respectively. Anthocyanins stimulated ERα transcriptional activity in human ERα reporter assays and
Seed coat crude extracts of white-coloured ITA-256, white and brown-coloured TVS-716, deep brown-coloured IT-90K and light brown-coloured Ife brown cowpea varieties were analyzed for the presence and amount of total phenol, tannin and flavonoid content. Crude extracts of the cowpea varieties were analyzed for antioxidant activity using the Thiobarbituric Acid (TBA) assay. The seed coat extracts were added sepa-rately to 200 g of minced broiler meat sample at the rate of 0.05% of the weight of the meat and their effect compared to that of the synthetic antioxidant, butylated hydroxyl anisole (BHA) added to the meat at the rate of 0.05%. Each sample was divided into 16 parts of 12.5 g each. Eight of these were cooked while the other 8 parts were left raw. Antioxidant effect of the seed coat extracts was determined during refrigerated storage of raw and cooked minced broiler meat. All the cowpea varieties studied except TVS-716 contained phenol, tannin and flavonoids. TVS-716 contained only phenol and
Glyphosate has been found in malformed piglets. The research study was conducted by a team of researchers from Germany and Egypt in collaboration with the Danish pig farmer Ib Pedersen, whose pigs were analysed for glyphosate content.The rate of malformations increased to one out of 260 born piglets if sow feeds contained 0.87-1.13 ppm glyphosate in the first 40 days of pregnancy. In the case of 0.25 ppm glyphosate in sow feeds, one out of 1432 piglets was malformed. In this case, therefore, a higher dose of glyphosate led to more malformations.. The piglets showed different abnormalities, including ear atrophy, spinal and cranial deformations, hole in the skull, and leg atrophy. In one piglet, one eye was not developed; it had a single large one (cyclopia, a malformation observed in Argentine populations exposed to Roundup spraying). There were piglets without a trunk, with an elephant tongue, and a female piglet with testes. One malformed piglet had a swollen belly and the foregut and ...
Ive been asked a lot lately about concerns such as yours. It is true that soy contains a mix of phytoestrogens -- plant estrogens -- some of which may stimulate proliferation of cells with estrogen receptors, while others inhibit it. High levels of isoflavones, the phytoestrogenic components of soy, theoretically could stimulate the growth of breast cancer and promote such estrogen-dependent conditions as benign fibroid tumors of the uterus and endometriosis.. I believe that physicians who advise women to avoid soy because of these theoretical concerns misunderstand the complexity of natural products. Just because soy contains stimulating phytoestrogens does not mean that the effect of whole soy foods is stimulating to estrogen-sensitive cells. In fact, the epidemiological evidence -- that is, the evidence of incidence of diseases in different populations -- strongly suggests that soy protects women from estrogen-dependent problems.. Actually, soys estrogenic effect is weak compared to the ...
