Carbon 13 NMR study of nonenzymatic reactions of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate with selected amino acids and of related reactions. (1/2410)

Carbon 13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been used to monitor the nonenzymatic reactions of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate with glycine, alanine, valine, serine, and with several other model compounds. Isotopically enriched amino acids were employed so that low concentrations could be utilized while still allowing relatively rapid acquisition of spectral data. The results for alanine and serine are particularly noteworthy in that alanine is deaminated to pyruvate and pyruvate is aminated to alanine, but contrary to the enzymatic reactions of various serine dehydratases wherein serine is converted to pyruvate, the nonenzymatic reaction utilizing serine results in hydroxypruvate rather than pyruvate formation. In the reverse reaction, hydroxypyruvate is aminated to serine but very inefficiently relative to the amination of pyruvate to alanine. The experimental results have been formulated into a proposed reaction mechanism for deamination of amino acids by pyridoxal-P.  (+info)

Hierarchical cluster analysis applied to workers' exposures in fiberglass insulation manufacturing. (2/2410)

The objectives of this study were to explore the application of cluster analysis to the characterization of multiple exposures in industrial hygiene practice and to compare exposure groupings based on the result from cluster analysis with that based on non-measurement-based approaches commonly used in epidemiology. Cluster analysis was performed for 37 workers simultaneously exposed to three agents (endotoxin, phenolic compounds and formaldehyde) in fiberglass insulation manufacturing. Different clustering algorithms, including complete-linkage (or farthest-neighbor), single-linkage (or nearest-neighbor), group-average and model-based clustering approaches, were used to construct the tree structures from which clusters can be formed. Differences were observed between the exposure clusters constructed by these different clustering algorithms. When contrasting the exposure classification based on tree structures with that based on non-measurement-based information, the results indicate that the exposure clusters identified from the tree structures had little in common with the classification results from either the traditional exposure zone or the work group classification approach. In terms of the defining homogeneous exposure groups or from the standpoint of health risk, some toxicological normalization in the components of the exposure vector appears to be required in order to form meaningful exposure groupings from cluster analysis. Finally, it remains important to see if the lack of correspondence between exposure groups based on epidemiological classification and measurement data is a peculiarity of the data or a more general problem in multivariate exposure analysis.  (+info)

A new rapid technique for the fixation of thyroid gland surgical specimens. (3/2410)

One of the main diagnostic problems in thyroid pathology is to distinguish between follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma. Thorough sampling of the nodule's capsule is recommended in order to identify capsular invasion. However, during the hardening of the tissue, by the usual fixatives the capsule shrinks and rolls downwards and sometimes the capsule separates from the remaining tissue. The present work evaluates the use of "Lymph Node Revealing Solution" (LNRS) for the rapid fixation (2h) of different thyroid lesions as compared to that of formalin. Fifty-one unselected consecutive cases of thyroid nodules, which included various benign and malignant lesions, were examined. Each specimen was cut in two equal parts; one was fixed in LNRS, the other in formalin. Fixation in LNRS for 2 hours gave adequate results in sectioning and staining of the tissue, and excellent immunostains. Its advantage over formalin is the conservation of the natural relationship between the capsule and the rest of the tissue, on the same plane, as well as the short time required for the final diagnosis.  (+info)

Characterization of socio-psychological stress-induced antinociception in the formalin test in mice. (4/2410)

The antinociceptive effect induced by exposure to socio-psychological (PSY) stress using a communication box was assessed by the formalin test in mice, compared with those by exposure to footshock (FS) stress and forced swimming (SW) stress. After the termination of stress exposure, whereas exposure to FS- and SW-stress resulted in the attenuation of the formalin-induced biphasic pain response over 15 min, no appreciable antinociceptive effect was found in the case of PSY stress. When exposure to PSY stress was started during the period of early or late phase of pain after the formalin injection, the antinociceptive effect was maintained for 5-15 min; however, further exposure to PSY stress was not effective for producing antinociception. In the tail-pinch test, likewise, exposure to PSY stress longer than 5 min rather decreased the intensity of antinociception. We conclude that PSY stress in this tonic pain paradigm produces antinociception, but further continuous exposure to the emotional stress caused mice to become recuperative even in such a fear-inducing situation.  (+info)

Immunofluorescence detection of ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) proteins with their carboxyl-terminal threonine phosphorylated in cultured cells and tissues. (5/2410)

Ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) proteins are thought to play an important role in organizing cortical actin-based cytoskeletons through cross-linkage of actin filaments with integral membrane proteins. Recent in vitro biochemical studies have revealed that ERM proteins phosphorylated on their COOH-terminal threonine residue (CPERMs) are active in their cross-linking activity, but this has not yet been evaluated in vivo. To immunofluorescently visualize CPERMs in cultured cells as well as tissues using a mAb specific for CPERMs, we developed a new fixation protocol using trichloroacetic acid (TCA) as a fixative. Immunoblotting analyses in combination with immunofluorescence microscopy showed that TCA effectively inactivated soluble phosphatases, which maintained the phosphorylation level of CPERMs during sample processing for immunofluorescence staining. Immunofluorescence microscopy with TCA-fixed samples revealed that CPERMs were exclusively associated with plasma membranes in a variety of cells and tissues, whereas total ERM proteins were distributed in both the cytoplasm and plasma membranes. Furthermore, the amounts of CPERMs were shown to be regulated in a cell and tissue type-dependent manner. These findings favored the notion that phosphorylation of the COOH-terminal threonine plays a key role in the regulation of the cross-linking activity of ERM proteins in vivo.  (+info)

Antinociceptive properties of the new alkaloid, cis-8, 10-di-N-propyllobelidiol hydrochloride dihydrate isolated from Siphocampylus verticillatus: evidence for the mechanism of action. (6/2410)

The antinociceptive action of the alkaloid cis-8, 10-di-n-propyllobelidiol hydrochloride dehydrate (DPHD), isolated from Siphocampylus verticillatus, given i.p., p.o., i.t., or i.c.v., was assessed in chemical and thermal models of nociception in mice, such as acetic acid-induced abdominal constriction, formalin- and capsaicin-induced licking, and hot-plate and tail-flick tests. DPHD given by i.p., p.o., i.t., or i.c.v. elicited significant and dose-related antinociception. At the ID50 level, DPHD was about 2- to 39-fold more potent than aspirin and dipyrone, but it was about 14- to 119-fold less potent than morphine. Its analgesic action was reversed by treatment of animals with p-chlorophenylalanine, naloxone, cyprodime, naltrindole, nor-binaltrorphimine, L-arginine, or pertussis toxin. Its action was also modulated by adrenal-gland hormones but was not affected by gamma-aminobutyric acid type A or type B antagonist, bicuculine, or phaclofen, nor was it affected by glibenclamide. DPHD, given daily for up to 7 days, did not develop tolerance to itself nor did it induce cross-tolerance to morphine. However, animals rendered tolerant to morphine presented cross-tolerance to DPHD. The antinociception of DPHD was not secondary to its anti-inflammatory effect, nor was it associated with nonspecific effects such as muscle relaxation or sedation. DPHD, in contrast to morphine, did not decrease charcoal meal transit in mice, nor did it inhibit electrical field stimulation of the guinea pig ileum or mouse vas deferens in vitro. Thus, DPHD produces dose-dependent and pronounced systemic, spinal, and supraspinal antinociception in mice, including against the neurogenic nociception induced by formalin and capsaicin. Its antinociceptive effect involves multiple mechanisms of action, namely interaction with mu, delta, or kappa opioid systems, L-arginine-nitric oxide and serotonin pathways, activation of Gi protein sensitive to pertussis toxin, and modulation by endogenous glucocorticoids.  (+info)

Vaccination with experimental feline immunodeficiency virus vaccines, based on autologous infected cells, elicits enhancement of homologous challenge infection. (7/2410)

Cats were vaccinated with fixed autologous feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)-infected cells in order to present viral proteins to the immune system of individual cats in an MHC-matched fashion. Upon vaccination, a humoral response against Gag was induced. Furthermore, virus-neutralizing antibodies were detected in a Crandell feline kidney cell-based neutralization assay, but not in a neutralization assay based on primary peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Despite the induction of these FIV-specific responses, vaccinated cats were not protected. Instead, accelerated virus replication was found, an observation similar to what previous experiments using other vaccine candidates have shown. Here, the results of the present study are discussed in the light of enhancement of lentivirus infections as a complicating factor in lentivirus vaccine development.  (+info)

Halothane effect on formalin-induced paw edema and flinching in rat. (8/2410)

The formalin test is a model of injury-produced inflammatory pain. Anesthetics, in clinically relevant concentrations, affect neutrophils and immune suppression. This study was to determine whether halothane reliably inhibits inflammatory reaction and formalin induced pain behavior or does not. Rats were exposed to 100% oxygen (control) or halothane, respectively for 30 min and then 24 hr later five percent formalin test was assessed. The base values of the paw's diameter were obtained earlier, and then formalin induced edema was assessed by measuring diameters of the injected paws at 5 min, 1 hr, 4 hr and 24 hr after the injection. Nociceptive behavior was quantified by counting the number of times with the paw flinched at 5 min intervals for 60 min. The diameters of edema in the halothane group lessened more than those in the oxygen group at 1 and 24 hr in each following of the injection (p<0.05). The rats pre-administered with oxygen or halothane were similar appearances in nociceptive behaviors. It suggests that halothane anesthesia might inhibit slightly the inflammatory reaction with the formalin-induced edema but might not inhibit the formalin-induced pain behavior in the event of pre-administration halothane 24 hr earlier before the formalin test of rat.  (+info)

Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) has been used to characterize the spatial and quantitative features of lipid-rich atherosclerotic plaques with high sensitivity and specificity. In this Letter, we first validate that the ultra-low temperature and formaldehyde treatment have no effect on photoacoustic characteristics of the artery samples. Comparative experiments between the PAI and histological results demonstrate that the ultra-low temperature or formaldehyde treatment has few effects on the PAI of the lipid-rich atherosclerotic plaques; the lipid relative concentration and the lipid percentage by PAI hold high correlation with histology ...

Occupational exposure to formaldehyde has been linked to nasopharyngeal carcinoma. To date, mechanistic explanations for this association have primarily focused on formaldehyde-induced cytotoxicity, regenerative hyperplasia and DNA damage. However, recent studies broaden the potential mechanisms as it is now well established that formaldehyde dehydrogenase, identical to S-nitrosoglutathione reductase, is an important mediator of cGMP-independent nitric oxide signaling pathways. We have previously described mechanisms by which formaldehyde can influence nitrosothiol homeostasis thereby leading to changes in pulmonary physiology. Considering evidences that nitrosothiols govern the Epstein-Barr virus infection cycle, and that the virus is strongly implicated in the etiology of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, studies are needed to examine the potential for formaldehyde to reactivate the Epstein-Barr virus as well as additively or synergistically interact with the virus to potentiate epithelial cell transformation

Formaldehyde is an organic compound with the formula CH2O. A gas at room temperature, formaldehyde is colorless and has a characteristic pungent, irritating odor. In view of its widespread use, toxicity and volatility, exposure to formaldehyde is a significant consideration for human health. On 10 June 2011, the US National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as known to be a human carcinogen.. Formaldehyde is highly toxic to all animals, regardless of method of intake. Ingestion of as little as 30 mL (1 oz.) of a solution containing 37% formaldehyde has been reported to cause death in an adult human. Water solution of formaldehyde is very corrosive and its ingestion can cause severe injury to the upper gastrointestinal tract.. Occupational exposure to formaldehyde by inhalation is mainly from three types of sources: thermal or chemical decomposition of formaldehyde-based resins, formaldehyde emission from aqueous solutions (for example, embalming fluids), and the production of ...
For decades, formaldehyde has been routinely used to cross-link proteins in cells, tissue, and in some instances, even entire organisms. Due to its small size, formaldehyde can readily permeate cell walls and membranes, resulting in efficient cross-linking, i.e. the formation of covalent bonds between proteins, DNA, and other reactive molecules. Indeed, formaldehyde cross-linking is an instrumental component of many mainstream analytical/cell biology techniques including chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) of protein-DNA complexes found in nuclei; immunohistological analysis of protein expression and localization within cells, tissues, and organs; and mass spectrometry (MS)-compatible silver-staining methodologies used to visualize low abundance proteins in polyacrylamide gels. However, despite its exquisite suitability for use in the analysis of protein environments within cells, formaldehyde has yet to be commonly employed in the directed analysis of protein-protein interactions and cellular ...
The EPAs assessment was not prepared in a logically consistent fashion and did not document methods and criteria for selecting and evaluating the studies considered. This lack of clarity and transparency in the formaldehyde assessment has also been found in other EPA chemical assessments that the NAS reviewed. NAS recommended that the EPA change its risk assessment methodology.. Humans and animals produce formaldehyde as part of the normal metabolic process. Formaldehyde is typically present in all tissues, cells and bodily fluids. The naturally occurring presence of formaldehyde in the body complicates the evaluation of the health risks associated with formaldehyde inhalation.. The EPA correctly concluded that formaldehyde is genotoxic, meaning that it impacts cell DNA. Formaldehyde is absorbed in the body at the site of first contact, meaning that formaldehyde is likely to remain in the body in the respiratory cells that line the airways. Although the NAS could not find support that ...

Abstract: Formaldehyde adsorption on CeO2(111) surface terminated by bridge O atom was systematically investigated by periodic density functional theory (DFT) with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) developed by projector augmented wave (PAW). According to the analysis of the optimized structures of adsorbed formaldehyde, adsorption energies at different coverages and different adsorption sites, it is found that there are two types of adsorbed formaldehyde on CeO2(111) surface. For the chemisorbed formaldehyde, the carbon and oxygen atoms of formaldehyde interact with the corresponding oxygen and cerium atoms of CeO2(111) surface, and form chemical bonds. The adsorption energies decrease with the increase of formaldehyde coverage on CeO2(111) surface. However, the optimized structures of the physically adsorbed formaldehyde are almost unchanged compared with the free formaldehyde molecule. The corresponding adsorption energies are generally lower than -27 kJ·mol-1. It is learned from ...

A total of 299 pigs (DNA 400 × 200; initial BW 33.6 lb) were used in a 14-d study to determine the effects of two separate commercial formaldehyde products (Termin-8; Anitox Corp, Lawrenceville, GA and SalCURB; Kemin Industries, Inc., Des Moines, IA) on nursery pig performance. Dietary treatments were arranged in a 3 × 2 factorial design with three formaldehyde inclusions: none vs. 6.5 lb/ton SalCURB vs. 6.0 lb/ton Termin-8 and 2 Lys levels: Standard (1.25% SID Lys) vs. Low (1.10% SID Lys). Formaldehyde treatments were established based on supplier recommendations and diets were treated with supplier-specific equipment. Pens of pigs were balanced by initial BW and randomly allotted to one of six treatments with five pigs per pen and 10 pens per treatment. Overall, there was a tendency (P | 0.10) for a formaldehyde source × Lys level interaction to affect ADG and F/G, but not ADFI. Pigs fed diets with standard Lys levels, regardless of formaldehyde source, tended to have similar (P | 0.10) ADG to one
Formaldehyde is a common air pollutant that tends to be found in elevated concentrations in indoor air. Exposure to formaldehyde has the potential to impact on respiratory health, particularly amongst sensitive individuals and populations, including children. Children spend most of their time indoors at home, however, there are very little data on the contribution of formaldehyde concentrations in homes to personal exposure in children. The principal aim of this cross sectional study was to investigate whether the domestic environment is the most significant source of personal exposure of formaldehyde in children. Forty-one primary school children (aged between 8 and 12) were recruited from two areas of Perth, Western Australia. Each child wore a personal passive formaldehyde sampler over a 24 hour period on two separate occasions, winter and summer. Samplers were also located indoors at home, outdoors at centralised locations and indoors at school for the corresponding period. A questionnaire about
The development of appropriate technology for treatment of high concentration formaldehyde wastewater prior to discharge into the environment is important to minimize its impact. Therefore, this study investigates the degradation of formaldehyde in a bioreactor. The experimental unit consisted of an up-flow aerobic immobilized biomass (UAIB) reactor with high porosity pumice stone as a fixed bed support. The UAIB reactor was fed with synthetic wastewater, prepared by mixing a solution of molasses with formaldehyde and nutrients. Reactor was tested at different synthetic wastewater concentrations with CODtotal (CODFA+CODmolasses) of 500, 1000 and 1500 mg/l at 24hr hydraulic retention time. The effect of feed composition was tested by changing the ratio of CODtotal/CODFA at 6/1, 5/1, 4/1, 3/1 2/1 and 1/1 to analyze the impact of formaldehyde concentration. The average formaldehyde and COD removal efficiencies obtained in the UAIB were 97.1% and 88%, respectively. The maximum CODT and CF removal ...

In 1987, the EPA classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure. The current draft assessment finds that formaldehyde could be up to five times more likely to cause cancer in humans than the EPA previously calculated. The EPAs preliminary conclusions find that formaldehyde can cause up to one occurrence of cancer for every 1,000 people who breathe it at exposure levels the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers typical. The EPAs draft further finds that formaldehyde exposure could increase the frequency of asthma attacks among children and result in harm to childrens lung function and their immune systems.. Last week, in related legislation, The Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act(H.R. 4805) (the Act) was passed in the House, amending the Toxic Substances Control Act, to set stricter formaldehyde emissions limits for plywood and other composite wood products. The Senate approved the Act ...
An impeccable sample fixation is a prerequisite for a correct histological diagnosis. Tissue samples must be immersed in an optimally chosen fixative immediately after sampling, because a timely fixation will prevent autolysis, putrefaction and other unwanted cellular changes. Although there are hundreds of histological fixatives and at least tens of formaldehyde-based fixatives, neutral buffered formaldehyde solutions with a concentration range from 4% to 10% are the most commonly used fixatives, primarily because of their simple and universal application. Tissue fixation using a buffered formaldehyde solution results in forming cross-links, i. e. it forms methylene bridges between proteins, that is, it results in keeping tissue components in their in vivo relation. If fixated properly, the tissue sample can withstand additional histological tissue processing and staining.. The NB 4% formaldehyde solution is 10% buffered formalin, which is the most commonly used fixative. It is suitable for ...
You might decide your natural locks arent so bad after all, given a new warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that most hair straightening/smoothing products release formaldehyde gas, a human carcinogen.. Being exposed to formaldehyde for longer periods of time and at higher concentrations increases the health risks, according to the FDA.. Formaldehyde exposure can cause a host of complaints, including eye problems or irritation; nervous system problems such as headaches and dizziness; and respiratory problems such as sore or scratchy throat, cough or wheezing.

Formaldehyde is a colourless, pungent chemical used in a number of manufacturing and chemical industries, and as a preservative in many types of products. Formaldehyde is found, in at least low concentrations, in most homes and workplaces. Many products that use formaldehyde contain very small amounts and may cause problems only for the few people who suffer extreme sensitivities.. Air pollution is the greatest source of exposure to formaldehyde for the general population. Sources include cigarette smoke, emission from new plastic materials such as upholstery and carpets, pressed wood products and fuel-burning appliances. In house fires, formaldehyde residues in fabrics and foams play a major role in the toxicity of the smoke..

By ignoring formaldehyde levels in trailers, FEMA again betrayed thousands of hurricane victims By ignoring formaldehyde levels in trailers, FEMA again betrayed thousands of hurricane victims. Two years later, the insults and depredations visited on the victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita by the very agency that is supposed to be help them seem to have no end. Last week, documents subpoenaed by a congressional committee revealed that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has managed to reach a new low, even by its deplorable standards. What the documents disclosed was that for more than a year, FEMA attorneys, apparently more concerned about legal liabilities than about protecting the health of thousands of hurricane victims, discouraged agency officials from investigating reports of dangerous levels of formaldehyde in trailers housing the victims. At the hearing, after listening to moving reports from three trailer occupants whose families attributed their illnesses to formaldehyde, both
TY - JOUR. T1 - Analysis of chromatin structure by in vivo formaldehyde cross-linking. AU - Orlando, Valerio. AU - Strutt, Helen. AU - Paro, Renato. PY - 1997/2. Y1 - 1997/2. N2 - Recent advances leave no doubt that higher order chromatin structures play a fundamental role in many developmentally important mechanisms of gene regulation. In particular analyses in genetic model systems like yeast and Drosophila uncovered novel proteins that are involved in the regulation of chromatin structures. Many of these proteins do not bind directly to DNA but interact in large multimeric complexes. To identify the DNA elements regulated by these multiprotein complexes, alternative approaches to the standard methods of DNA-protein analysis had to be devised. Here we present a method that preserves the architecture of the higher order chromatin structures by crosslinking cells in vivo with formaldehyde. An immunoprecipitation strategy is then used to identify the DNA targets of chromosomal proteins of ...

Gas-phase formaldehyde (HCHO) is an intermediate and a sensitive indicator for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) oxidation, which drives tropospheric ozone production. Effective photochemical pollution control strategies demand a thorough understanding of photochemical oxidation precursors, making differentiation between sources of primary and secondary generated HCHO inevitable. Spatial and seasonal variations of airborne carbonyls based on two years of measurements (2012-2013), coupled with a correlation-based HCHO source apportionment analysis, were determined for three sampling locations in Hong Kong (denoted HT, TC, and YL). Formaldehyde and acetaldehyde were the two most abundant compounds of the total quantified carbonyls. Pearsons correlation analysis (r > 0.7) implies that formaldehyde and acetaldehyde possibly share similar sources. The total carbonyl concentration trends (HT < TC < YL) reflect location characteristics (urban > rural). A regression analysis further ...
On June 21, 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) agreed to a series of investigative steps that will move the nation closer to national standards for reducing formaldehyde in housing. The move comes on the heels of a March 24, 2008, petition launched by over 25 environmental, housing, and health organizations to extend the California formaldehyde standards nationally. The California standards require a dramatic reduction in formaldehyde off-gassing from hardwood plywood, particle board, and medium density fiberboard (MDF), all of which are products used in most low-cost furniture and wood building materials.. ...
People are exposed primarily by inhaling formaldehyde gas or vapor from the air or by absorbing liquids containing formaldehyde through the skin. Workers who produce formaldehyde or products that contain formaldehyde-as well as laboratory technicians, certain health care professionals, and mortuary employees-may be exposed to higher levels of formaldehyde than the general public.. The general public may be exposed to formaldehyde by breathing contaminated air from sources such as pressed-wood products, tobacco smoke, and automobile tailpipe emissions. Another potential source of exposure to formaldehyde is the use of unvented fuel-burning appliances, such as gas stoves, wood-burning stoves, and kerosene heaters.. ...
Formaldehyde is an ubiquitous air pollutant in indoor and outdoor atmospheres. Possible sources are disinfectants, paints, resins, particle boards, tobbaco smoke and combustion processes. It is used in large amounts in the plastics manufacturing industry. The German government has set the maximum allowed workspace concentration, MAK-value, to 0.5 ppm (v/v). For non-occupational indoor environments 0.1 ppm (v/v) are recommended. Traditional systems for the determination of formaldehyde in air consist of a sampling step (e.g. washer, adsorber) followed by a quantification step (optical, enzymatic, or titration). There are only few reports where formaldehyde is determined directly in the gas phase in one step. We present an electrochemical enzyme biosensor that can detect gaseous formaldehyde directly without a separate sampling step. NAD-dependent formaldehyde dehydrogenase converts formaldehyde to formic acid. The formed NADH is oxidised by a redox mediator (e.g. naphthoquinone). The latter is ...

Abstract(s) :. (Anglais) Volatile Organic Compounds in indoor air have become these last years the subject of a big concern. The main emission sources are: furniture, paintings, varnishes, wood protection, construction materials, etc. In particular, formaldehyde is now considered by the authorities as one of the priority pollutants because of its carcinogenic [1] character and because of the multiplication of sources in our close environment. The world health organization (WHO) guideline for indoor air formaldehyde concentration is 80 ppb (0.1 mg/m3) [2]. Methods based on air sample collection and lab measurements are available and are the most used methods [3]. They are accurate and reliable but these methods are expensive, are not real time and some statistics issues are raised because of that. That is why, it is important to detect and measure formaldehyde in real time, in situ and with a low cost equipment. Devices based on chemical sensors are a good solution as these systems can be very ...

A number of reports have recently emerged with focus on extraction of proteins from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues for MS analysis; however, reproducibility and robustness as compared to flash frozen controls is generally overlooked. The goal of this study was to identify and validate a practical and highly robust approach for the proteomics analysis of FFPE tissues. FFPE and matched frozen pancreatic tissues obtained from mice (n = 8) were analyzed using 1D-nanoLC-MS(MS)2 following work up with commercially available kits. The chosen approach for FFPE tissues was found to be highly comparable to that of frozen. In addition, the total number of unique peptides identified between the two groups was highly similar, with 958 identified for FFPE and 1070 identified for frozen, with protein identifications that corresponded by approximately 80%. This approach was then applied to archived human FFPE pancreatic cancer specimens (n = 11) as compared to uninvolved tissues (n = 8), where ...

A large amount of poplar plywood is now being imported into Japan from China, and as a result, formaldehyde emitted from this plywood represents an undesirable chemical that must be controlled using a chemical catching agent. The aim of this study is to find an approach to reduce the formaldehyde emission of poplar plywood using thermal treatment without employing any chemicals. The experimental results obtained show that heating veneer sheets in the temperature range of 150 °C to 170 °C effectively reduced the formaldehyde emission of plywood, without diminishing the mechanical properties of the veneer. By applying Langmuirs theory and Hailwood-Horrobin theory to the adsorption isotherm obtained in this study, the relationship between the formaldehyde emission of plywood and the adsorption properties of veneer as a material is discussed. When veneer sheets were heated in the temperature range of 150 °C to 170 °C, the amount of hydrated water (monomolecular layer) decreased slightly and that of

The fixative 10% buffered formalin is commonly used to preserve tissues for routine histology in many labs. The formaldehyde has a greater chance for oxidation in this concentration of tissue fixative and eventually the solution will start to drop in pH, in spite of the buffer. We recommend that 10% buffered formalin solutions be used no longer than 3 months after they were initially mixed. The solution should be clear, colorless, with no precipitate and the pH should not be below 6.5.. The other problem with 10% buffered formalin is the slowly increasing concentration of methanol (an unwanted byproduct of aging formaldehyde). Methanol promotes clumping of proteins, instead of the cross-linking of proteins that formaldehyde performs. A methanol-free fixative will give the best preservation, particularly if you plan to use the tissue for antibody staining at a later time.. The most common way to avoid methanol in a formaldehyde solution is to make the solution up fresh from crystalline ...
The present study showed that sertraline inhibits a classical experimental model of pain, the formalin-induced nociception. Sertraline was able to attenuate the increase in the afferent activity of the ScN after a painful stimulus. This effect was accompanied by a decrease in RF and a decrease in serum 5-HT concentration. In addition, formalin administration caused an increase in MAP and tachycardia.. Formalin is an agent used to induce hyperalgesia and inflammation in rat paws, and this model has been considered to be a suitable model for acute clinical pain (25). McNamara et al. (26) showed that formalin activates primary afferent sensory neurons through a specific and direct action on TRPA1, a member of the transient receptor potential family of cation channels that is highly expressed by a subset of C-fiber nociceptors. The nociceptive response to formalin occurs in a biphasic pattern: there is an initial acute period (phase 1, duration of 7 ± 10 min) and, after a short period of remission, ...

Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, which damages and mutates DNA in the cells of mammals. Acute and chronic exposure to formaldehyde may occur in both occupational settings (e.g., embalmers) and from several household products (e.g., insulation, particle boards, and carpeting). Upon human exposure to formaldehyde, several DNA adducts may be formed, including those with the amino groups of guanine (denoted CH2OH-N2-G), cytosine (CH2OH-N4-C), and adenine (CH2OH-N6-A). Each of these adducts consists of a methoxy moiety linked to the exocyclic amino group of the respective DNA nucleobase. The methoxy moiety can interfere with several noncovalent interactions within a DNA helix, including Watson-Crick hydrogen bonding, Hoogsteen hydrogen bonding, and stacking interactions between neighboring DNA nucleobases. These interactions are essential to the normal function of DNA and their disruption could lead to mutations when DNA is copied, which in turn lead to health effects such as cancer. Although ...

Formaldehyde carcinogenicity is now a commonly accepted notion in society, as well as in anatomic pathology laboratories. Guilty on arrival. However, the background of this concept is far beyond a reasonable doubt.. There is not now even an echo politically charged dispute of 1980s between U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety & Health Agency (OSHA), College of American Pathologists (CAP), Formaldehyde Institute, DuPont, and labor unions on the evaluation of formaldehyde occupational exposure risk, which was based on the assessment of formaldehyde as probable carcinogen at that time. 1 In 1989, the American Medical Association (AMA) summarized the literature data through 1985 on occupational exposure to formaldehyde. Mentioning that regulatory agencies as OSHA, regarded formaldehyde as a possible human carcinogen, AMA observed that this is a controversial opinion in the view of many industry and academic scientists.1. Times have changed. The main organization ...
In addition to the laminate industry, the adhesive industry was the second largest consumer of melamine formaldehyde in 2012. Due to the global rising growth of furniture and construction industries, the increase in the consumption of adhesives and laminates has played a pivotal role in the overall melamine formaldehyde market. The use of melamine formaldehyde is also seen in the tableware applications. This market is augmented to show the fastest growth rate due to the high consumption of MF products in the future. Likewise, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) agreement to implement melamine formaldehyde in the food manufacturing and packaging sectors, as well as other tableware segments is anticipated to boost the consumption of melamine formaldehyde in this particular application. Some additional applications such as household appliances, sanitary ware, and electrical appliances has also witnessed high consumption of melamine formaldehyde, and the growth in these markets is also ...

Formaldehyde (HCHO) columns measured from space provide constraints on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Quantitative interpretation requires characterization of errors in HCHO column retrievals and relating these columns to VOC emissions. Retrieval error is mainly in the air mass factor (AMF) which relates fitted backscattered radiances to vertical columns and requires external information on HCHO, aerosols, and clouds. Here we use aircraft data collected over North America and the Atlantic to determine the local relationships between HCHO columns and VOC emissions, calculate AMFs for HCHO retrievals, assess the errors in deriving AMFs with a chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem), and draw conclusions regarding space-based mapping of VOC emissions. We show that isoprene drives observed HCHO column variability over North America; HCHO column data from space can thus be used effectively as a proxy for isoprene emission. From observed HCHO and isoprene profiles we find an HCHO molar ...
The concentrations of gaseous atmospheric carbonyl compounds have been measured at a coastal site on the southern tip of Nova Scotia during August 1993 as part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations North Atlantic Regional Experiment (NARE) summer intensive. The DNPH-cartridge technique was used for sampling, with analysis by HPLC with UV absorbance detection. The carbon isotopic content of formaldehyde was measured using a novel collection technique on bisulfite-coated fillers followed by accelerator mass spectrometric determination of C-14 content and C-13/C-12 isotopic ratios. Results from this study indicate that quantifiable levels above about 100 parts per trillion by volume were found at the Chebogue Point, Nova Scotia, site for several carbonyls, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acetone, propionaldehyde, methyl ethyl ketone, and benzaldehyde, for most 6-hour sampling periods. Six-hour averaged formaldehyde levels of ,0.5 to about 3.5 parts per billion were found during ...
The identification of developmental stages in fish eggs from plankton samples is often complicated by deformation of the embryos due to mechanical stress during the sampling procedure and by dehydration during formaldehyde fixation. The effects of formaldehyde fixation and mechanical stress on Baltic cod eggs (Gadus morhua callarias L.) were examined separately by visually comparing the morphological features of treated vs. live eggs of identical ontogenetic age. Microphotographs were made concurrently for documentation. In stage IA eggs, mechanical treatment resulted in scattered blastodiscs surrounded by single cells, while in further advanced stages the yolk membrane collapsed entirely, the yolk coagulated and the embryo extending over the yolk shrank. Formaldehyde fixation caused the yolk and the blastodisc or embryo to darken, and in some cases crystalline enclosures occurred. Eggs mechanically deformed during handling were clearly distinguishable from those that died prior to catching; ...
The Environmental Protection Agency has reopened through May 8 the comment period for a proposed rule designed to ensure that imported or domestically produced composite wood products meet the formaldehyde emission standards established by Congress in 2010. The EPA will also hold a meeting on this issue April 28 in Washington, D.C.. The proposed rule would limit how much formaldehyde may be emitted from hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, particleboard and finished goods that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, manufactured or imported in the U.S. The emitted formaldehyde may be left over from the resin or composite wood making process or be released when the resin degrades in the presence of heat and humidity. This proposal includes testing requirements, laminated product provisions, product labeling requirements, chain of custody documentation, recordkeeping, a stockpiling prohibition, and enforcement provisions. It also contains an exemption from some testing and recordkeeping ...

The concentrations of formaldehyde, individual volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and total VOCs (TVOC) were measured in four new manufactured houses on three occasions over nine months following construction. Ventilation rates were also measured. A mass-balance model was used to calculate area-specific emission rates of the target analytes. Formaldehyde concentrations were all less than a guideline value of 50 ppb. One-half of the 58 target VOCs had median concentrations at or below 1 ppb. The most abundant VOCs were terpene hydrocarbons, ethylene glycol, hexanal, 2-butanone and acetic acid. Concentrations of hexanal, other aldehydes and acetic acid often exceeded their odor thresholds. The median TVOC concentration was 1.6 mg m-3. In general, there were no large decreases in the emission rates of individual VOCs or TVOC over the course of the study. The data suggested that wood products were a dominant source of VOCs in all houses.. ...

As is the case with many other small, polar molecules, analysing for formaldehyde presents analysts with a real challenge.. If you attempt to analyse for CH2O by GC you quickly find that a flame ionisation detector gives no response, and with a molecular weight of just 30, GC-MS offers no help either; so to analyse this pesky compound by GC at low levels you need something exotic like a helium ionisation detector, which, for low level work is tricky to use.. If that isnt enough to contend with, formaldehyde can react in the sampling system, injector or column, which means that sometimes when the analysis should work - it just doesnt.. A common approach is to trap and derivatize gas phase samples on DNPH tubes and analyse the derivatives by LC using a fluorescence detector.. You can get decent results this way, but it is slow and time consuming.. This matters, because formaldehyde is toxic, a known human carcinogen and very useful. We manufacture more than 8.7 million tonnes of formaldehyde per ...
Archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues represent an abundant source of clinical specimens; however their use is limited in applications involving analysis of gene expression due to RNA degradation and modification during fixation and processing. This study improved the quality of RNA extracted from FFPE by introducing a heating step into the selected extraction protocols. Further, it evaluated a novel pre-amplification system (PreAmp) designed to enhance expression analysis from tissue samples using assays with a range of amplicon size (62-164 bp). Results from the Bioanalyzer and TaqMan® data showed improvement of RNA quality extracted using the modified protocols from FFPE. Incubation at 70°C for 20 minutes was determined to be the best condition of those tested to disrupt cross-links while not compromising RNA integrity. TaqMan® detection was influenced by master mix, amplicon size and the incorporation of a pre-amplification step. TaqMan® PreAmp consistently achieved decreased

Investigations of the reaction of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [FeFe]-hydrogenase with formaldehyde using pulsed-EPR techniques including electron-nuclear double resonance spectroscopy establish that formaldehyde binds close to the active site. Density functional theory calculations support an inhibited super-reduced state having a ...
In other words, the panel found that all three streams of evidence used (where available) to evaluate chemicals toxicity to people - human epidemiological data, studies in laboratory animals, and mechanistic information - were consistent and strongly support the finding that formaldehyde causes cancer in people. And that it causes multiple types of cancer, at multiple sites in the body, via multiple routes of exposure, and through multiple mechanisms.. With regard to the controversy over whether formaldehyde causes leukemia and other blood-related cancers, the NAS panel noted (page 13, emphasis added):. The committee found clear and convincing epidemiologic evidence of an association between formaldehyde exposure and myeloid leukemia. There may also be an increase of other lymphohematopoietic cancers, although the evidence is less robust. … The mechanistic events that were considered by the committee as relevant to the plausibility of formaldehyde-associated tumors beyond the portal of entry ...

In this study, the synthesis of polypyrrole-b-vinyl aniline modified cyclohexanone formaldehyde resin (PPy-b-CFVAnR) block copolymers by a combination of condensation polymerization and chemical oxidative polymerization processes was examined. First, a cyclohexanone formaldehyde resin containing vinyl aniline units [4- vinyl aniline modified cyclohexanone formaldehyde resin (CFVAnR)] was prepared by a direct condensation reaction of 4-vinyl aniline and cyclohexanone with formaldehyde in an in situ modification reaction. CFVAnR and pyrrole (Py) were then used with a conventional method of in situ chemical oxidative polymerization. The reactions were carried out with heat-activated potassium persulfate salt in the presence of p-toluene sulfonic acid in a dimethyl sulfoxide-water binary solvent system; this led to the formation of desired block copolymers. The effects of the oxidant-monomer molar ratio, dopant existence, addition order of the reactants, and reaction temperature on the yield, ...
The Beauty industry has finally realized that there are many toxic chemicals out there in the everyday products we use. But one in particular has recently made headlines because it has been found in hair salon straightening products, called formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas that, at room temperature, emits a noxious odor. Health specialists believe it can cause cancer, allergies and disrupt the immune system. It has also been linked to incidents of hair loss, nosebleeds and respiratory problems. And now, formaldehyde also has been found in hair products used at home, such as shampoos and styling gels.. Good news/bad news: Formaldehyde in baby shampoo (yes, in products for babies) also made headlines last year-and for good reason. Last year, health products giant Johnson & Johnson, announced that it was phasing out formaldehyde-releasing chemicals in its baby care products.. The bad news is that that is just one health care products company responding to consumer concerns, there are ...
