AB  - Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are lipophilic, constant and bioaccumulative toxic compounds. In general, they are considered resistant to biological, photolytic, and chemical degradation with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) belonging to these chemicals. PCBs were never produced in Serbia, but they were imported and mainly used in electrical equipment, transformers, and capacitors. Our study aimed to analyse sequential multi-stage aerobic/anaerobic microbial biodegradation of PCBs present in the river sediment from the area known for long-term pollution with these chemicals. The study with an autochthonous natural microbial community (NMC model system) and NMC augmented with allochthonous hydrocarbon-degrading (AHD) microorganisms (isolated from location contaminated with petroleum products) (NMC-AHD model system) was performed in order to estimate the potential of these microorganisms for possible use in future bioremediation treatment of these sites. The laboratory biodegradation study lasted 70 days, after which an overall >33 % reduction in the concentration of total PCBs was observed. This study confirmed the strong potential of the NMC for the reduction of the level of PCBs in the river sediment under alternating multi-stage aerobic/anaerobic conditions.
AB  - Дуготрајне органске загађујуће супстанце (POPs) су липофилна, постојана и биоакумулативна токсична једињења. Уопштено говорећи, сматрају се отпорним на биолошку, фотолитичку и хемијску деградацију, а полихлоровани бифенили (PCBs) спадају у групу ових хемикалија. У Србији се PCBs никада нису производили, али су се увозили и углавном користили у електроопреми, трансформаторима и кондензаторима. Циљнашег истраживања био је да се анализира секвенцијална вишестепена аеробна/анаеробна микробиолошка разградња PCBs присутних у речном седименту са подручја познатог по дуготрајном загађењу овим једињењима. Проучавање активности конзорцијума аутохтоних природно присутних микроорганизама (NMC конзорцијум) и NMC суплементисаних конзорцијумом алохтоних угљоводоник деградирајућих (HD) микроорганизама (изолованих са локација контаминираних нафтним дериватима) (NMC-HD конзорцијум) је изведено како би се проценила способност ових микроорганизама за потренцијалну употребу у будућим биоремедијационим третманима оваквих локалитета. Лабораторијска студија биоразградње је трајала 70 дана, након чега је уочено смањење концентрације укупних PCBs за >33 %. Ово истраживање је потврдило снажан потенцијал аутохтоних микроорганизама за смањење нивоа PCBs у речном седименту у наизменичним вишестепеним аеробним/анаеробним условима.

AB  - The problem of wastewater has long been ubiquitous and has great consequences for the environment and its inhabitants. Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) have enormous potential for the treatment of wastewaters polluted with azo dyes. The amount of energy that can be produced from a single-chamber MFC is sufficient to perform decolorization and degradation of such dyes, which are widely used in the textile industry. This study on the azo dye, reactive black 5 (RB5), provides an alternative method through three parallel-connected MFCs to obtain electricity that directly serves for the dye’s electrochemical degradation. We examined degradation followed by decolorization of RB5 using Fe and Pt electrodes, together with H2O2, to achieve the electro-Fenton process. The amount of voltage produced (295 mV), the current density (276 mA m−3) and the power density (50 mW m−3) were sufficient to degrade 25 mg L-1 RB5 dye with 0.5 mM H2O2 in just 2 h. The dye degradation mechanism was investigated using UV–VIS, FT-IR and HPLC-MS/MS. The ecotoxicity of the degradation products was assessed using a bacterial model, Aliivibrio fischeri. These tests showed that there was successful degradation of the dye to products whose toxicity is less than that of RB5.

AB  - The characterization and cleanup of groundwater contamination in hazardous-waste sites are of significant engineering and scientific importance. This study analyzes biodegradation fingerprints in groundwater, 25 years after the accidental leakage of kerosene (jet fuel) at the site in central Serbia. The long-term existence of hydrocarbon contamination and the presence of indigenous microbiological populations capable of biodegradation have been confirmed by the results of GCxGC-MS chromatography and microbiological characterization. Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), geochemical indicators, and other parameters were spatially analyzed to provide insight into biodegradation occurrence. The lowest concentrations of electron acceptors (O2, NO3-, and SO42-) and the highest concentrations of microbial metabolic products (Mn and Fe) overlap in the piezometers closest to the source of contamination, due to the occurrence of different biodegradation mechanisms. Based on the analysis of redox-sensitive compounds, the mixed oxic-anoxic processes in groundwater also correspond to the aforementioned zone, as confirmed by the redox potential (Eh) measurements. The results of cross-study analysis reveal further reduction of hydrocarbon contamination, the occurrence of less anoxic redox processes, and the increase of oxic conditions in groundwater. Overall, the results provide clear evidence of the biodegradation effects in groundwater and insight into their evolution under natural attenuation processes.

AB  - This study aimed to determine the qualitative variability of essential oils of mountain germander – Teucrium
montanum L. (Lamiaceae) at the population level, depending on the type of geological substrate. Ten samples of
essential oils originated from aerial plant parts of populations from calcareous and ten from serpentinite were
tested by GCxGC-MS method. The obtained results showed that the serpentinite populations have more than 3
times higher essential oil yield than calcareous populations. Based on the average values for the relative percentage amounts of T. montanum essential oils, it was shown that the sesquiterpenes (34.89%) are the main
compounds in analyzed essential oils. Population from calcareous habitats synthesize twice as many aliphatic
hydrocarbons than populations from serpentinite habitats, while populations from serpentinite habitats synthesize twice as much mono- and sesquiterpenes. The compounds with highest relative percentage amounts in
calcareous populations was the hydrocarbon tetracosane (9.02%), while in serpentinite populations it was
oxygenated sesquiterpene, limonen-10-ol (4.81%). Compounds which were only detected for calcareous populations are: dodecane and isophytol, while for serpentinite populations are: 3-caren-2-ol, carvone oxide and
pyronene. The obtained results indicate a significant influence of the habitat geological substrate on the qualitative characteristics of the T. montanum essential oil. Differentiation of calcareous and serpentinite populations
into two distinct groups based on the essential oil composition indicate the significant presence of specific
chemotypes developed by the influence of various edaphic characteristics.

AB  - Literature data about semi-volatile organic compounds in plants and the effect of cerium oxide nanoparticles on them are scarce. Surface modification of nanoparticles may change nanoparticle-environment interaction, and therefore affects compounds in plants. In this research, uncoated and glucose-, levan-, and pullulan-coated cerium oxide nanoparticles were used for wheat and pea treatment during the growth. The aim was the screening of semi-volatile organic compounds from plants’ shoots using comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, a powerful separation technique allowing to reach unique separation resolution, and investigation of qualitative changes after the treatment with coated cerium oxide nanoparticles. The results were analyzed by the identification of individual peaks and fingerprint analysis by image processing. Wheat samples contained a higher number of semi-volatile organic compounds (108) compared to pea (77) but were less affected by the treatments with coated nanoparticles. The highest number of compounds was detected in wheat after the treatment with levan- and pullulan-coated nanoparticles, and in pea after treatment with levan-coated nanoparticles. This article reports a successful application of a semi-volatile organic compounds profile presented only as categorical variables and unique fingerprint images for the inter-cultivar recognition. This method may be useful in screening nanoparticles’ effects on different plants.

AB  - Aquaphotomics is a relatively novel scientific discipline which can be used for elucidation of structural and  related functional properties of aqueous systems. The aim of this study was to analyse water solutions of carbohydrates of different size from monosaccharides (glucose and fructose) via, disaccharides (sucrose), gluco and fructo-oligosaccharides and various selected polisaccharides (based on glucose and fructose, respectively) using Aquaphotomics. Knowing that main functions of carbohydrates within our body are various: providing energy and regulation of blood glucose; sparing the use of proteins for energy; breakdown of fatty acids and preventing ketosis; biological recognition processes; flavor and sweeteners and dietary fibers who can promote digestive health, knowledge about their interaction with water molecules can have strong influence on our understanding of some basic but also complex metabolic processes.

AB  - Cerium oxide nanoparticles (nCeO2) have widespread applications, but they can be hazardous to the environment. Some reports indicate the toxic effect of nCeO2 on tested animals, but literature data are mainly contradictory. Coating of nCeO2 can improve their suspension stability and change their interaction with the environment, which can consequently decrease their toxic effects. Herein, the exopolysaccharides levan and pullulan, due to their high water solubility, biocompatibility, and ability to form film, were used to coat nCeO2. Additionally, the monosaccharide glucose was used, since it is a common material for nanoparticle coating. This is the first study investigating the impact of carbohydrate-coated nCeO2 in comparison to uncoated nCeO2 using different model organisms. The aim of this study was to test the acute toxicity of carbohydrate-coated nCeO2 on the bacterium Vibrio fischeri NRRL B-11177, the crustacean Daphnia magna, and zebrafish Danio rerio. The second aim was to investigate the effects of nCeO2 on respiration in Daphnia magna which was performed for the first time. Finally, it was important to see the relation between Ce bioaccumulation in Daphnia magna and Danio rerio and other investigated parameters. Our results revealed that the coating decreased the toxicity of nCeO2 on Vibrio fischeri. The coating of nCeO2 did not affect the nanoparticles’ accumulation/adsorption or mortality in Daphnia magna or Danio rerio. Monitoring of respiration in Daphnia magna revealed changes in CO2 production after exposure to coated nCeO2, while the crustacean's O2 consumption was not affected by any of the coated nCeO2. In summary, this study revealed that, at 200 mg L−1, uncoated and carbohydrate-coated nCeO2 are not toxic for the tested organisms, however, the CO2 production in Daphnia magna is different when they are treated with coated and uncoated nCeO2. The highest production was in glucose and levan-coated nCeO2 according to their highest suspension stability. Daphnia magna (D. magna), Danio rerio (D. rerio), Vibrio fischeri (V. fischeri)

AB  - BACKGROUND: Pectin is a complex polysaccharide, present in fresh and processed food as an additive, which also serves as an important source of fiber. In this work, the aim was to investigate in-vitro application of apple pectin as a possible antimicrobial, antioxidant and prebiotic agent for growth of bacteria selected from human milk and infant feces, as well as standard strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium bifidum.
METHODS : All the bacteria isolated from the milk of mothers of preterm and term-born infants, bacteria from infant feces and standard strains were tested for fermentation of apple pectin as the main carbohydrate in selective broth media.
RESULTS: An increase in the growth of bacteria Bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus, and a consortium of bacteria selected from human milk and infant feces was noticed after pectin fermentation. It was found that pectin has a positive impact on the increase of the antioxidant capacity in all the tested samples. A high correlation was achieved, comparing electrochemical with spectrophotometric methods. Antimicrobial tests showed that pectin and fermentation products have slight or no influence at all on the growth of standard strains of Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans.
CONCLUSIONS: The results showed the importance of pectin as an antioxidant and its impact on the development of potential probiotic microbiota in mothers and infants. The study indicated a new potential application of pectin as a supplement in infant food.

AB  - The aim of this study is to determine the qualitative variability and relative presence of sesquiterpene hydrocarbons in essential oils samples of Teucrium montanum L. collected from two different substrate types. Four samples of essential oils from serpentinite and four from calcareous were obtained by the method of hydrodistillation from aboveground plant parts. Based on the results, it was shown that populations from serpentinite habitats synthesize 2 times more sesquiterpenes than from calcareous ones, while the compound 6-epi-β-cubeben was detected only in populations from calcareous. Edaphic characteristics of habitats affect the qualitative composition and relative presence of sesquiterpenes in essential oils, which has a significant application in biotechnology.

AB  - The purpose of this paper is to determine the polyphenol content, antioxidative potential and antiproliferative activity of Swiss chard from Montenegro, grown under different irrigation and fertilization regimes. Design/methodology/approach: Swiss chard was grown in the open field (Lješkopolje, Montenegro) where it was subjected to different fertilization and irrigation regimes. Chard samples were analyzed for previously identified polyphenols and for antioxidant parameters. Additionally, in order to complete the biological activities, chard extracts were tested for antiproliferative activity against MFC-7 and HT-29 tumor cell lines. Findings: The polyphenols identified in Swiss chard were flavonoids: vitexin-2?-O-xyloside, vitexin-6?-O-acetyl-2?-O-xyloside, vitexin-6?-O-malonyl-2?-O-xyloside and isorhamnetin-3,7-diglucoside. In the antioxidant tests, DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl), and ABTS (2,2'-azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid)), chard extract had values of 7.00 and 8.50 (mean values) µmol Trolox (6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-carboxylic acid) equ/d.w., respectively. The tested chard extracts inhibited cell proliferation at different concentrations (3.125–50.0 µg/mL) against the MCF-7 cell line, after 24 and 48 h of incubation. The antiproliferative activity, expressed in terms of IC50, was 32.97 and 86.45 µg/mL after 24 h of incubation and 20.76 and 23.33 µg/mL after 48 h of incubation, for treated and untreated chard extracts, respectively. Originality/value: These data suggest Montenegrin Swiss chard grown under different irrigation and fertilization treatments can be considered as a functional food and should be included in an everyday diet. The collected data could help in the growth improvement of chard with functional food properties.

AB  - Introduction: Global worldwide population and urbanization in general have created an increasing need for new energy sources. These sources need to be renewable, but it is also very important to respect the principles of environmental protection. Microbial fuel cells (MFC) are a green technology that is attracting more and more attention in the last decade. MFC presents a system which produces electrical current through metabolic processes of microorganisms such is the decomposition of organic matter. In this process chemical energy is directly converted into electrical energy [1-3]. The performance of MFC depends on several factors: temperature, the composition of the sediment, the material from which the electrodes are made, but certainly, one of the prominent factors is the activity of a microbial community. In this paper, efficiency of two MFC systems will be compared to obtain the highest current and power generation. One of them contains only river sediment as a source of microorganisms, while the other was biostimulated by microorganisms isolated from the same river sediment [2-3]. Methods: The river sediment was placed between a set of inox electrodes in a plastic container, with a total volume of 201 cm3  (MFC I). The second MFC (MFC II) was made in the same way, but a consortium of microorganisms, Clostridium sp., Bacillus sp. and Tepidibacter sp. isolated from the river sediment was added to the sediment. The set of resistors already established in our previous studies were used for the measurement of the amount of voltage, which was then used to obtained the values of current and power [4]. Results: After five days of measuring the generated voltage via MFC I and II, the results for current and power density were obtained. In MFC I, the highest current density was recorded on the fifth day and was 76 mA/ m3  while the power was 1.5 mW/m3 . With MFC II, the results were visibly higher, where the current was increased three times (up to 210 mA/m3 ), and the power by as much as 4 times higher compared to the results of MFC I (6 mW/m3 ). Conclusion: Results show that MFC I has lower values than the sediment stimulated by a consortium of microorganisms in the MFC II. The community of microorganisms greatly contributes to improving the performance of the sediment itself, by generating more power density.

AB  - Copper is one of the leading metal pollutants in the water, which can cause adverse effects when present in high concentrations. The Daphnia magna is a model organism usually used for the determination of ecotoxicological effects of various compounds since it is highly sensitive to toxic compounds [1]. The aim of this work was to investigate the potential application of microbial extracellular polysaccharides (EPS), levan and pullulan, as agents for reducing the copper toxicity to D. magna. The protective effects of EPS were estimated based on the accumulation of copper in the D. magna cells. Levan is a branched fructane EPS [2] and the one used in this study was produced by Bacillus licheniformis NS032. Pullulan, a linear glucan EPS [3], was produced by Aureobasidium pullulans CH-1. The D. magna were exposed to 50 µg/dm3  of Cu (II) or a combination with 50 mg/dm3  and 100 mg/dm3  of levan or pullulan for 48h in the acute test. Additionally, the prolonged test was performed, where the daphnia were exposed to a 10 µg/dm3  of Cu (II) with or without 50 mg/ dm3  of levan or pullulan for 5 days. After the exposure period, the samples were digested and the accumulation of copper in D. magna was analysed using the iCAP Qc ICP-MS (Thermo Scientific, United Kingdom). The results showed that animals exposed to Cu (II) only, accumulated Cu (II) in a greater amount after the prolonged test compared to the acute one, despite the lower concentration. The treatment with EPS during the acute test increased the copper accumulation for both EPS concentrations tested, whereas during the prolonged exposure test, the Cu (II) accumulation was inhibited. Considering that protective effects of levan and pullulan were observed only with lower copper concentrations and 5 days of exposure, additional experiments are necessary to determine the mechanism of EPS action in order to confirm their possible use as protective agents.

AB  - Among numerous available nanomaterials, nanoceria (NC) has a particular importance based on its redox properties which are considered as a cause of antibacterial activity [1]. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is Gram-negative bacteria, well known for its ability to grow in diverse environments due to great potential for adaptation and its metabolic diversity. Its ability to overcome the challenges lies on bacterial cell-cell communication mechanism, known as quorum sensing (QS) system, which regulates expression of numerous genes [2]. To reveal effects of NC on metabolism of environmental isolate of polyextremophile P. aeruginosa san ai, production of exopolysaccharide, pigment – pyocyanin, siderophores – pyoverdine and pyochelin, as well accompanied changes related to QS, biofilm formation, and redox homeostasis were investigated. The minimal inhibitory concentration of NC against P. aeruginosa san ai is 8 mg/mL, which classifies it in a group of highly resistant Pseudomonas. P. aeruginosa san ai exhibited an important formation of biofilm, with OD590 readings of 0.21 for culture grown in LB and in range from 0.26 to 0.57 for culture from LB amended with increasing concentrations of NC (from 0.5 to 5 mg/mL). Accordingly, P. aeruginosa san ai can be classified as moderately adherent strain. Changes in alginate formation with increasement of 37% in the presence of NC, which have been detected, imply its engagement in the cell protection. An improved biofilm formation and production of alginate in the culture exposed to nanoceria clearly indicates their role in the first line of defence, according to previous data [3]. The up-regulation of both siderophores pyoverdine and pyocheline, was detected in cultures amended with NC, suggesting strong effect of NC on the iron homeostasis. The siderophore biosynthesis and transport require tight regulation, particularly in case of exposure to the toxic threat of ROS generated. Free radical species can trigger Fenton reaction further compromising the maintenance of intracellular iron levels. An improved production of pyoverdine- highly iron-specific siderophore, obtained in this study clearly documents how promptly and efficiently the bacteria reacts to overcome exhaustion of iron. Production of pyocyanin is almost 3 times higher in nanoceria amended culture than in control, clearly suggesting redox homeostasis disturbance caused by NC. Although NADH/NAD redox couple plays a major role in central metabolism of P. aeruginosa, another characteristic feature of P. aeruginosa is the ability to produce redox-active pyocyanin, which can react with NADH suggesting that electron transfer to pyocyanin may represent an adaptation that allows bacteria to modulate their intracellular redox state.

AB  - Recycling of electronic waste is crucial not only from the viewpoint of waste treatment but also from aspect of the recovery of valuable metals [1]. The aim of our study was to investigate the potential of using the Acidithiobacillus sp. B2, to solubilize metals (Cu and Zn) from electronic waste. Methodology: Chemical analysis of electronic waste and pyrite The electronic waste (after separating of the plastic parts) and pyrite were pulverized and sieved through a 63 µm stainless steel sieve in preparation for chemical and leaching studies. Electronic waste preparation for the leaching experiment The presence of alkali components in electronic waste is considered inconvenient for the reaction between the electronic waste and the acidic iron(III) sulphate solution. Hence, it is necessary to neutralize the electronic waste before adding the bacterial culture which would generate the oxidant. Before the leaching experiment, electronic waste was dispersed in 0.05 M H2 SO4  solution, shaken for 48 h, filtered from the solution, washed out with deionized water and dried at 110 °C [2]. Preparation of pyrite for the leaching experiments The pyrite concentrate for the leaching experiments was prepared by treating with a 0.5 mol/dm3  sulphuric acid solution (pH ~ 0.5) (solid to liquid phase ratio 1:5 m/V), and mixing with a mechanical stirrer at a room temperature overnight. Then, the solution was decanted, washed with deionized water and dried at 80 °C to a constant mass [2]. Leaching experiments The leaching experiments were carried out with bacterium Acidithiobacillus sp. B2. Experimental conditions were: leaching period of 20 d, 50 ml leaching solution (g/dm3 ): (NH4 )2 SO4  (3), K2 HPO4  (0.5), MgSO4 x 7H2 O(0.5), KCl (0.1), Ca(NO3 )2  (0.01), at a pH of 2.5 in 150 mL Erlenmeyer flasks at a pulp density of 10% (m/V) (5 g leaching substrate in 50 ml solution). The pH of the leaching solution was maintained at a constant value during the leaching process. One half of the substrate was pyrite and the other was an electronic waste. The initial number of microogranisms was 107  per mL, determined by the Most Probable Number method. The control suspension had the same chemical content and pH value as the suspension with Acidithiobacillus sp. B2 but the Acidithiobacillus sp. B2 culture had been inactivated by sterilization. The study was realized on a horizontal shaker. The incubation temperature was 28 °C [2]. Results and conclusions: The results of the effective metal leaching (calculated by subtraction of percentage metal leaching in the control suspension from that in the Acidithiobacillus sp. B2 suspension) are as follows: Zn (38%)>Cu (35%). The obtained results demonstrate that Acidithiobacillus sp. B2 was able to grow in the presence of electronic waste and may be “green” agents in the area of circular economy and sustainable development.

AB  - We describe herein the synthesis and laccase mediated oxidation of six novel 1,4-dihydropyridine (DHP)-based hexahydroquinolines (DHP1-DHP3) and decahydroacridines (DHP4-DHP6). We employed different laccase enzymes with varying redox potential to convert DHP1-DHP3 and DHP4-DHP6 to the corresponding pyridine-containing tetrahydroquinoline and octahydroacridine derivatives, respectively. Intensively coloured products were detected in all biocatalytic reactions using laccase from Trametes versicolor (TvLacc), possibly due to the presence of conjugated chromophores formed in products after oxidation. The NMR assessment confirmed that the oxidation product of DHP1 was its corresponding pyridine-bearing tetrahydroquinoline derivative. Laccase from Bacillus subtillis (BacillusLacc) was the most efficient enzyme for this group of substrates using HPLC assessment. Overall, it could be concluded that DHP2 and DHP5, bearing catecholic structures, were easily oxidized by all tested laccases, while DHP3 and DHP6 containing electron-withdrawing nitro-groups are not readily oxidized by laccases. DHP4 with decahydroacridine moiety consisting of three condensed six-membered rings that contribute not only to the volume but also to the higher redox potential of the substrate rendered this compound not to be biotransformed with any of the mentioned enzymes. Overall, we showed that multiple analytical approaches are needed in order to assess biocatalytical reactions.

Weexamined five different catalysts that are derived from the Oil Refinery Pancevo, a metal that is focused attention asMo (molybdenum) and Co (cobalt).The efficiency of bacterial cells in concentrating metal has enabled their high ratio of surface area to volume and highcharge density on the cell surface. Entire bacterial cell is negatively charged due to the presence of different anions.Therefore, the bacterial cell walls have a strong affinity for metal cations. Intact bacterial cells, regardless of whetherthey are alive or dead, as their products are also very effective in accumulating metals.

AB  - In this study, for the first time, the comprehensive analysis of antiproliferative and antioxidant activities of ramson, followed by the analysis of its associated microbiota and health-promoting effects of lactic acid bacteria (LAB), was performed. Ramson (Allium ursinum) is recognized as a medicinal plant with a long history of use in traditional medicine due to its antimicrobial and antioxidant activity. In this study the influence of in vitro gastrointestinal digestion on the cytotoxic activity of A. ursinum extracts against human malignant cell lines was demonstrated. Seven sulfur compounds, the degradation products of thiosulfinates, including diallyl disulfide were shown to inhibit proliferation of malignant cells by inducing accumulation within G2/M phase as well as to induce apoptosis through activation of caspase-3 and mitochondrial signaling pathway. Further, the A. ursinum microbiota, particularly LAB with potential probiotic effects, was analyzed by culture-dependent method and culture-independent method [denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE)]. The obtained results revealed that the most abundant genera were Streptococcus, Lactobacillus, and Bacillus. The Lactobacillus genus was mainly represented by L. fermentum. The pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis revealed the presence of two PFGE pulsotypes. The probiotic potential of the strain L. fermentum BGSR163 belonging to PFGE pulsotype 1 and the strain L. fermentum BGSR227 belonging to the PFGE pulsotype 2 was characterized. The results revealed that both strains are safe for human use, successfully survive the simulated gastrointestinal conditions, have potential to transiently colonize the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and have a protective immunomodulatory effect, inducing the production of proinflammatory cytokine IL17 and regulatory cytokine IL10, while decreasing the production of proinflammatory cytokine IFN-γ. In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that consumption of A. ursinum might have health-promoting properties, including anticancer effects, while L. fermentum strains isolated from A. ursinum leaves could be used as probiotics for human consumption.

AB  - An efficient encapsulation of the fullerene into two hydrophobized and one native polysaccharide provided water soluble supramolecular hybrids. After covalent modification of polysaccharides by cholesterol, noncovalent hybrids were prepared by a three-step procedure, including mixing of individual aqueous solutions of hydrophobized, as well as native sugar with solution of the fullerene in pyridine, dialysis and lyophilization. Although the degree of the fullerene incorporation into hydrophobized substrates, cholesterol-levan and cholesterol-pullulan, was lower in comparison to the native polysaccharide levan, hydrophobization provided nanoparticles with improved properties. The particle size distribution, studied by dynamic light scattering and scanning electron microscopy revealed formation of moderately polydisperse aggregates, with the diameter contraction in comparison to the corresponding free polysaccharide, especially in the case of hydrophobized substrates. The morphological examination, done by scanning electron microscopy indicated the self-organization of the fullerene-native polysaccharide to round individual structures, while fullerene-hydrophobized polysaccharide hybrids tend to form networks. The antioxidant activity of the synthesized polysaccharide-C60 noncovalent hybrids versus starting polysaccharides was investigated by the DPPH radical scavenging and the β-carotene-linoleic acid bleaching methods. In all three complexes, the radical scavenging ability of the fullerene remained preserved, and a positive effect of levan hydrophobization was observed.
