AB  - Benefits and risks of the fish consumption should be assessed to balance the ingestion of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and adverse chemicals. Persistent organic pollutants-POPs (organochlorine pesticides-OCPs and polychlorinated biphenyls-PCB), macro- and micro-elements and fatty acid contents were determined in six fish species from the Adriatic Sea to assess health risks for consumers (worst-case scenario, diseases development risks and benefit-risk). 16 element, 24 POPs and 14 fatty acid contents were determined in six pelagic species which can be used in human diet. Element concentrations were determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), POPs by high-resolution gas chromatography and fatty acid content by gas–liquid chromatography. Diet based on chub mackerel and round sardinella showed lower daily intake (DI) of POPs and highest DI of essential omega-3 fatty acids than other investigated species. Lower ingestion of toxic elements can be observed by consuming anchovy and round sardinella. Based on POP concentrations, there was not observed non-carcinogenic (HI) nor carcinogenic (CR) risks for consumers. Based on element concentrations, there was low HI (0.1 ≥ HI ≥ 1), while the maximum HIs and outlier values (horse mackerel and anchovy samples) implied the presence of HI (HI > 1). The most significant contributor to total non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic risks was inorganic arsenic (inorganic As). Acceptable CR for consumers was assessed, but maximum CR for consumers of horse mackerel and anchovy (CR ≥ 1 × 10–6) showed adverse effects on human health. There were low HIs for developing cardiovascular, nervous, and reproductive diseases, and maximum HIs were higher than 1. Acceptable (1 × 10−4≥CR ≥ 1 × 10−6) risks were observed for developing cancer of nervous system and reproductive organs. Among investigated fish samples, those with higher ƩBR (benefit-risks) and BR for arsenic (As) than median value have a higher risk than benefits in the human diet.

AB  - In this investigation, the possibility of wood waste (hardwoods such as oaks’ and alternatives’ staves from Balkan cooperage) revalorization for simultaneous cadmium removal and wastewater disinfection was examined. All samples were characterized in terms of their crystallinity index and crystallite size, amount of functional groups, and surface chemistry (determined by ATR-FTIR) as well as antibacterial activity. Mulberry is characterized by the lowest crystallinity index which can be ascribed to the highest crystallite size disabling crystallite denser packaging, while myrobalan plum has about 23% lower crystallite size that enables crystallite better packaging, thus resulting in a 42.4% higher crystallinity index compared to the mulberry. All oaks have a significantly higher amount of carboxyl groups compared to the alternatives (0.23-0.28 vs. 0.12-0.19 mmol/g). The adsorption experiments revealed that with increasing the initial cadmium concentration from 15 up to 55 mg/g, samples’ adsorption capacity increases by 89-220%. The equilibrium data fit well with the Langmuir isotherm model implying monolayer coverage of cadmium ions over a homogeneous wood surface. The relationship between the samples’ maximum adsorption capacities (ranged from 5.726 to 12.618 mg/g), their crystallinity index, and crystallite size was established. According to ATR-FTIR spectra, aldehyde, carboxyl, hydroxyl, and phenyl groups present on the wood waste surface are involved in Cd2+ adsorption which proceeds via the interplay of the complexation, cation-π interactions, and ion-exchange mechanisms. Mulberry and myrobalan plum showed about 89% and 80% of the total uptake capacity of cadmium within 60 min, while the equilibrium was attained after 240 min of contact time. Good compliance with pseudo-second kinetic order indicated that cadmium adsorption was mediated by chemical forces. Thermodynamic parameters revealed the spontaneous and exothermic character of cadmium ion adsorption onto mulberry and myrobalan plum. All studied samples provide maximum bacterial reduction (>99%) for E. coli and S. aureus. Wood waste from Balkan cooperage can be successfully used for simultaneous cadmium removal and wastewater disinfection.

AB  - This work investigates the release of toxic elements from wood into the experimental spirit models and the safety risks for consumers. The spirit models were prepared as ethanolic extracts using the procedure which reproduces maturation of spirits. Investigation included staves of wood species commonly used in Balkan cooperage: mulberry, Myrobalan plum, black locust, wild cherry, and various oaks. Potassium was the most abundant element, except in the wild cherry extract where calcium was dominant, and the Myrobalan plum extract where phosphorus was the most abundant. The parameters for the health risk assessment, such as hazard index (HI) and hazard quotient (HQ) were calculated for potentially toxic elements and indicated that all wood extracts would be safe for human consumption. Owing to the proven abundance of phenolics in the investigated wood extracts, relations among elements and phenolics were also studied and conclusions were made based on the statistically significant correlations.

AB  - Oligomeric intermediates on the pathway of amyloid fibrillation are suspected as the main cytotoxins responsible for amyloid-related pathogenicity. As they appear to be a part of the lag phase of amyloid fibrillation when analyzed using standard methods such as Thioflavin T (ThT) fluorescence, a more sensitive method is needed for their detection. Here we apply Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) in attenuated total reflectance (ATR) mode for fast and cheap analysis of destabilized hen-egg-white lysozyme solution and detection of oligomer intermediates of amyloid fibrillation. Standard methods of protein aggregation analysis— Thioflavin T (ThT) fluorescence, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and 8-anilinonaphthalene-1-sulphonic acid (ANS) fluorescence were applied and compared to FTIR spectroscopy data. Results show the great potential of FTIR for both, qualitative and quantitative monitoring of oligomer formation based on the secondary structure changes. While oligomer intermediates do not induce significant changes in ThT fluorescence, their secondary structure changes were very prominent. Normalization of specific Amide I region peak intensities by using Amide II peak intensity as an internal standard provides an opportunity to use FTIR spectroscopy for both qualitative and quantitative analysis of biological samples and detection of potentially toxic oligomers, as well as for screening of efficiency of fibrillation procedures.

AB  - The aim of this research was to verify the authenticity of monofloral honeys from the territory of the Republic of Serbia on the basis of physicochemical parameters routinely measured in honey quality control using multivariate analysis. Seventeen samples of monofloral honey (11 samples of acacia honey and 6 samples of sunflower honey) from the territory of the Republic of Serbia were analyzed. Physicochemical analysis of the samples included the examination of basic quality parameters and qualitative and quantitative analyses of phenolic compounds. In the samples tested, a total of 93 phenolic compounds were tentatively identified, and 19 of them were quantified. The obtained physicochemical analysis of the data served as input for the multivariate analysis. The hеаt map, which is useful for visualizing numerical data, was used for this purpose. The obtained results showed that the applied data can serve to clearly separate acacia and sunflower honeys.

AB  - Edible insects are a food source that has high nutritional value. Domestic silkworm pupae are an important by-product of sericulture and have a long history as food and feed ingredients in East Asia. Silkworm pupae are a good source of protein, lipids, minerals, and vitamins and are considered a good source of nutrients for humans. Silkworm pupae are a valuable insect source of substances used in healthcare products, medicines, food additives, and animal feed. Because silkworm pupae are being increasingly used in the human diet, potential allergic reactions to the substances they contain must be elucidated. Here, we present an overview of the benefits of silkworm pupae. First, we describe their nutritional value. Second, we report their functional properties and applications, focusing on their potential use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Finally, we consider the current state of research regarding silkworm pupae-induced allergies.

AB  - Over the past two decades, organocatalytic aldol reaction emerged as a powerful method for the enantioselective carbon–carbon bond formation, often offering more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly synthesis of chiral molecules. On the other hand, reductive amination is one of the most important reactions in synthesis of biologically active compounds and drug candidates. Coupling these two reactions results in a powerful combination that allows for a rapid, stereoselective access to substituted, highly functionalized five- and six-membered N-heterocycles. This minireview illustrates the applicability of this approach as the key feature in syntheses of various iminosugars – a class of polyhydroxylated alkaloids with a range of interesting biological activities and high pharmacological potential.

AB  - Morphology of the pygidial glands and chemical compositions of their secretion were analysed in the adults of three selected ground beetle taxa. Secretions of pygidial glands of Cychrus (Cychrus) semigranosus, Patrobus atrorufus and Pterostichus (Platysma) niger were chemically tested. Additionally, pygidial glands of the latter two species were investigated using bright-field microscopy and nonlinear microscopy and morphological features of the glands were described in detail. Both C. (C.) semigranosus and P. atrorufus were studied for the first time in terms of chemical ecology, while the latter species was analysed for the first time in terms of pygidial gland morphology. Altogether, eight compounds were detected in the dichloromethane extracts of the pygidial gland secretions of the three ground beetle taxa analysed. The simplest secretion mixtures were present in C. (C.) semigranosus and P. atrorufus (with two compounds each), while the extract of P. (P.) niger contained five compounds. The presence of 1-tetradecanol in the secretion of P. (P.) niger represents the first finding of this compound from the pygidial gland secretion extracts of ground beetles.

AB  - XRF (X-ray fluorescence analysis) has been applied as the method for analysis of plant samples, but not in its full potential. This method would be highly suitable for monitoring programs and screening studies. A simple sample preparation procedure makes this technique time and cost-effective, although the absence of adequate calibration standards for some analyzed matrices can be a significant limiting factor. Nevertheless, this obstacle can be overcome by the development of the so-called “standardless method” approach. It is important to explore the possibilities and limitations of such method applied to an analysis of plant materials. The accuracy of XRF analysis is highly dependent on the physical characteristics of the sample, which can be significantly affected by the sample preparation procedure. Variations of 3 crucial sample preparation parameters: the mass of the samples (from 1 to 5 g), binder ratio (from 0 to 25% of wax), and pressing pressure (from 10 to 25 t) were tested on needles obtained from two widespread conifer species: Pinus nigra and Abies alba. For most elements, the correlation between the concentration and the change of the binder ratio was statistically significant, while there was no statistically significant correlation between the concentration and the change of the pellet mass and applied pressure. For both types of needles, an estimated systematic error was always higher than a random error. The difference between two types of errors has been higher among samples with different wax content than in samples with different pellet mass, while the variation of applied pressure did not introduce any significant systematic error. On average the change of wax content inflated the value of systematic error by 18 and 13% for the pine and fir needle samples (respectively), while the change of the sample mass has introduced systematic error in lesser extent, on average it was 11% for pine needles and 10% for fir needle samples. The change of pelletizing pressure affected the results by only 3.9% for both conifer needles.

AB  - Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is a desensitizing treatment for allergic diseases that corrects the underlined pathological immune response to innocuous protein antigens, called allergens. Recombinant allergens employed in the AIT allowed the production of well-defined formulations that possessed consistent quality but were often less efficient than natural allergen extracts. Combining recombinant allergens with an adjuvant or immunomodulatory agent could improve AIT efficacy. This study aimed to perform structural and functional characterization of newly designed recombinant chimera composed of the Bet v 1, the major birch pollen allergen, and Banana Lectin (BanLec), TLR2, and CD14 binding protein, for the application in AIT. rBet v 1-BanLec chimera was designed in silico and expressed as a soluble fraction in Escherichia coli. Purified rBet v 1-BanLec (33.4 kDa) retained BanLec-associated biological activity of carbohydrate-binding and preserved IgE reactive epitopes of Bet v 1. The chimera revealed secondary structures with predominant β sheets. The immunomodulatory capacity of rBet v 1-BanLec tested on macrophages showed changes in myeloperoxidase activity, reduced NO production, and significant alterations in the production of cytokines when compared to both rBanLec and rBet v 1. Comparing to rBet v 1, rBet v 1-BanLec was demonstrated to be more efficient promoter of IL-10 production as well as weaker inducer of NO production and secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines TNFα, and IL-6. The ability of rBet v 1-BanLec to promote IL-10 in together with the preserved 3D structure of Bet v 1 part implies that the construct might exert a beneficial effect in the allergen-specific immunotherapy.

abstract = "Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is a desensitizing treatment for allergic diseases that corrects the underlined pathological immune response to innocuous protein antigens, called allergens. Recombinant allergens employed in the AIT allowed the production of well-defined formulations that possessed consistent quality but were often less efficient than natural allergen extracts. Combining recombinant allergens with an adjuvant or immunomodulatory agent could improve AIT efficacy.

AB  - In this study, the interaction between clozapine, an atypical antipsychotic drug, and alpha-2-macroglobulin (α2M), a multipurpose anti-proteinase, was investigated under simulated (patho) physiological conditions using multiple spectroscopic techniques and molecular modeling. It was found that α2M binds clozapine with a moderate affinity (the binding constant of 0.9 × 105 M−1 at 37 °C). The preferable binding site for both clozapine's atropisomers was revealed to be a large pocket at the interface of C and D monomer subunits of the protein. Hydrogen bonds and the hydrophobic effect were proposed as dominant forces in complex formation. The binding of clozapine did not induce significant conformational change of the protein, as confirmed by virtually unaltered α2M secondary structure and anti-proteinase activity. However, both clozapine and α2M shielded each other from the deleterious influence of strong oxidants: sodium hypochlorite and 2,2′-azobis-2-methyl-propanimidamide dihydrochloride (AAPH). Moreover, clozapine in a concentration range that is usually targeted in the plasma during patients' treatment effectively protected the anti-proteinase activity of α2M under AAPH-induced free radical overproduction. Our results suggest that the cooperation between α2M and clozapine may be a path by which these two molecules synergistically protect neural tissue against injury caused by disturbed proteostasis or oxidative stress.

AB  - This research explores the possibilities and limitations of WD-XRF, applied as a method for quantification of 20 elements in plant material, using spiked cellulose standards for calibration. Three different analytical methods were investigated: 1) standards created from pure spiked cellulose; 2) spiked cellulose mixed with 20% of binder and 3) spiked cellulose applied as a thin layer on an inert carrier. Sensitivity, linearity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, repeatability, intralaboratory reproducibility, and accuracy were determined and compared. The accuracy of the investigated methods was tested by analysis of standard reference materials and comparison with other routinely used analytical techniques (ICP-OES and ICP-MS). The comparison included real plant samples which were collected from the environment characterized by different pollution levels. The accuracy of the semiquantitative standardless method was also considered and compared with other investigated methods. Tested methods can be very precise, with good intralaboratory reproducibility over wide linear range.

AB  - Honeybee colony losses have been a focus of research in the last years, due to the importance of managed honeybee colonies for economy and ecology. Different unfavorable conditions from the outside environment have a strong impact on the hive health. The majority of losses occur mainly during winter and the exact reason is not completely understood. Only a small number of studies are dealing with content of bioelements, their function and influence on honeybee physiology. The aim of the present study was to determine seasonal and spatial variations in content of bioelements and non-essential elements, in hemolymph and whole body of honeybees originating from three regions with different degrees of urbanization and industrialization. Concentrations of 16 elements were compared: macroelements (Ca, K, Mg, Na), microelements (Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn) and non-essential elements (Al, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Ni, Pb, Sr) in samples collected from 3 different environments: Golija (rural region), Belgrade (urban region) and Zajača (industrial region). Content of bioelements and non-essential elements in honeybees was under noticeable influence of the surrounding environment, season and degree of honeybee activity. Hemolymph was proven to be helpful in differentiating air pollution from other sources of honeybee exposure. The results of our study demonstrated that bees can be successfully used as biomonitors since we have observed statistically significant differences among observed locations, but unless compared locations are exposed to excessively different pollution pressures, it is essential that all bees should be collected at the same season.

AB  - This research explores the possibilities and limitations of WD-XRF, applied as a method for quantification of 20 elements in plant material, using spiked cellulose standards for calibration. Three different analytical methods were investigated: 1) standards created from pure spiked cellulose; 2) spiked cellulose mixed with 20% of binder and 3) spiked cellulose applied as a thin layer on an inert carrier. Sensitivity, linearity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, repeatability, intralaboratory reproducibility, and accuracy were determined and compared. The accuracy of the investigated methods was tested by analysis of standard reference materials and comparison with other routinely used analytical techniques (ICP-OES and ICP-MS). The comparison included real plant samples which were collected from the environment characterized by different pollution levels. The accuracy of the semiquantitative standardless method was also considered and compared with other investigated methods. Tested methods can be very precise, with good intralaboratory reproducibility over wide linear range.

AB  - Electronic interactions in donor-π-linker-acceptor systems with barbituric acid as an electron acceptor and possible electron donor were investigated to screen promising candidates with a push–pull character based on experimental and quantum chemical studies. The tautomeric properties of 5-benzylidenebarbituric acid derivatives were studied with NMR spectra, spectrophotometric determination of the pKa values, and quantum chemical calculations. Linear solvation energy relationships (LSER) and linear free energy relationships (LFER) were applied to the spectral data - UV frequencies and 13C NMR chemical shifts. The experimental studies of the nature of the ground and excited state of investigated compounds were successfully interpreted using a computational chemistry approach including ab initio MP2 geometry optimization and time-dependent DFT calculations of excited states. Quantification of the push–pull character of barbituric acid derivatives was performed by the 13CNMR chemical shift differences, Mayer π bond order analysis, hole-electron distribution analysis, and calculations of intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) indices. The results obtained show, that when coupled with a strong electron-donor, barbituric acid can act as the electron-acceptor in push–pull systems, and when coupled with a strong electron-acceptor, barbituric acid can act as the weak electron-donor.

AB  - Humulones and iso-humulones are potent natural antioxidants found in beer. In this study, density functional theory (DFT) method was applied for elucidating the structure-antioxidant activity relationship and molecular mechanism of antioxidant activity of eight bioactive humulones previously identified in different beer samples: isoxanthohumol, (R)- and (S)-adhumulone, cis- and trans-iso-adhumulone, cis- and trans-iso-n-humulone, and desdimethyl-octahydro-iso-cohumulone. The calculated bond dissociation enthalpies (BDEs) suggest that desdimethyl-octahydro-iso-cohumulone was the most potent compound with BDEs 5.1 and 23.9 kJ/mol lower compared to the values for resveratrol in gas phase and water, respectively. The enolic –OH is the most reactive site for hydrogen atom transfer (HAT). The presence of β-keto group with respect to enolic –OH diminishes the HAT potency via the formation of a strong intramolecular hydrogen bond. Another common antioxidant mechanism, single electron transfer followed by proton transfer (SET-PT), is only feasible for isoxanthohumol. The results of this study indicate a strong correlation between the increased antioxidant activity of beer products and the higher content of reduced iso-α-acids.

AB  - Metabolism of sulfur (sulfur assimilation pathway, SAP) is one of the key pathways for the pathogenesis and survival of persistant bacteria, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), in the latent period. Adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate reductase (APSR) is an important enzyme involved in the SAP, absent from the human body, so it might represent a valid target for development of new antituberculosis drugs. This work aimed to develop 3D-QSAR model based on the crystal structure of APSR from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which shows high degree of homology with APSR from Mtb, in complex with its substrate, adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (APS). 3D-QSAR model was built from a set of 16 nucleotide analogues of APS using alignment-independent descriptors derived from molecular interaction fields (MIF). The model improves the understanding of the key characteristics of molecules necessary for the interaction with target, and enables the rational design of novel small molecule inhibitors of Mtb APSR.

Циљ  овог  рада  је  развој  3D-QSAR  модела  који  се  заснива  на  кристалној  структури APSR из Pseudomonas aeruginosa, који има висок степен хомологије са APSR из  Mtb, у комплексу са супстратом, аденозин 5'-фосфoсулфатом (APS). 3D-QSAR модел је  постављен коришћењем сета 16 нуклеотидних аналога APS применом дескриптора неза- висних од полазних тачака, изведених из поља молекуларних интеракција (MIF).

AB  - Different phosphates and phosphonates have shown excellent coating ability toward magnetic nanoparticles, improving their stability and biocompatibility which enables their biomedical application. The magnetic hyperthermia efficiency of phosphates (IDP and IHP) and phosphonates (MDP and HEDP) coated Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) were evaluated in an alternating magnetic field. For a deeper understanding of hyperthermia, the behavior of investigated MNPs in the non-alternating magnetic field was monitored by measuring the transparency of the sample. To investigate their theranostic potential coated Fe3O4-MNPs were radiolabeled with radionuclide 177Lu. Phosphate coated MNPs were radiolabeled in high radiolabeling yield (> 99%) while phosphonate coated MNPs reached maximum radiolabeling yield of 78%. Regardless lower radiolabeling yield both radiolabeled phosphonate MNPs may be further purified reaching radiochemical purity of more than 95%. In vitro stabile radiolabeled nanoparticles in saline and HSA were obtained. The high heating ability of phosphates and phosphonates coated MNPs as sine qua non for efficient in vivo hyperthermia treatment and satisfactory radiolabeling yield justifies their further research in order to develop new theranostic agents. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - The aim of this study was to investigate the creation of humic substances during biodegradation of heavy residual fuel oil, because there are indications that substances similar to humic substances are generated during biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. In the study, which lasted for 110 days, biodegradation of heavy residual fuel oil was carried out in a layer of artificial soil substrate. The initial concentration of the total petroleum hydrocarbon in the prepared artificial soil substrate (biopile) was 23.1 g kg-1 dry weight (d.w.). At the end of the process, the total petroleum hydrocarbons were reduced to 8.1 g kg-1 d.w. in the inoculated biopile, while the content of humic acids increased during bioremediation from 3.15 g kg-1 d.w. to 4.95 g kg-1 d.w. The humic acids extracted from biopile during the biodegradation process were characterized by various chemical techniques (elemental analysis, spectrofluorimetric analysis, electrochemical measurements, and size exclusion chromatography). The results showed that levels of C, H and the H/C ratio decreased as the biodegradation process progressed. This indicated that humic acids aromatization process took place and this was confirmed by the spectrofluorimetric analysis. The increase of oxygen percentage and the O/C ratio in the humic acids after the biodegradation treatment indicated an increase in functional oxygen groups. Additional analyses of humic acids from the inoculated biopile showed that they were transformed during the bioremediation process. They had greater redox and buffering capacities and a larger portion of the fractions had high molecular mass. Also, the humification parameters (the CHAs/CFAs ratio and CHAs/Corg ratio) increased during the biodegradation. This is one of the few studies that describes the generation of humic substances during the biodegradation of oil compounds.

AB  - Antioxidants present in infant food contribute to its nutritive value and provide protection from oxidative damage. Here, a direct current polarographic method, based on a decrease of anodic current from the hydroxoperhydroxo-mercury(II) complex (HPMC) formed at a mercury dropping electrode at its potential of dissolution, was used to determine the total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of infant formulas, human milk collected from mothers of full-term and preterm infants, human milk supplemented with fortifier, and cow milk. TAC of milk samples and infant formula correlated with protein content measured by the Bradford method (Pearson correlation coefficient 0.605, p<0.001), while TAC of human milk correlated with content of free thiol groups measured by the Ellman method (0.779, p<0.001). The results obtained showed that, in contrast to the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) assay, HPMC enables specific insight into the quality of infant milk food which reflects the amounts of free thiol groups and protein content. The significant contribution of milk proteins and the most prevalent amino acids, particularly cysteine, arginine, and phenylalanine, to TAC was shown. Thus, the HPMC method might be useful in monitoring the quality of infant formulas and human milk for preterm infants before and after supplementation with fortifier.
