AB  - Raspberries are considered valuable fruits due to their high levels of nutrients and phytochemicals, which have many beneficial effects on humans. As many external factors affect the composition of these fruits (the type of cultivation, soil characteristics, ripeness, storage time and post-harvest technologies, cultivar/genotype, and climatic conditions), the goal of this study was to analyze different raspberry cultivars grown in Norway. Considering that Norway is a country with specific climatic conditions, as well as has a limited period of fruit vegetation, another important goal of this study was also to compare raspberries from different Norwegian areas, as well as different grown cultivars. Modern analytical techniques, such as high-performance anion-exchange liquid chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPEAC-PAD), ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detector coupled to triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD MS/MS), and inductively coupled plasma–optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), provided a detailed examination of the raspberry extract samples. Based on their high levels of minerals (especially N, P, and K), organic acids (predominantly citric and malic acids), sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose, and galactose), and polyphenols (ellagic acid, syringic acid, quercetin, and rutin), Norwegian raspberries could be considered fruits with increased health-beneficial compounds. The chemical composition of the studied cultivars depended on the locality of growth

AB  - Followed by a buildup of its phytochemical profile, Erodium cicutarium is being subjected
to antimicrobial investigation guided with its ethnobotanical use. The results of performed in vitro
screening on Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Candida albicans strains, show that
E. cicutarium has antimicrobial activity, with a particular emphasis on clinical S. aureus strains—
both the methicillin sensitive (MSSA) and the methicillin resistant (MRSA) S. aureus. Experimental
design consisted of general methods (the serial microdilution broth assay and the agar well diffusion
assay), as well as observing bactericidal/bacteriostatic activity through time (the “time‐kill”
assay), investigating the effect on cell wall integrity and biofilm formation, and modulation of bacterial
hemolysis. Observed antibacterial activity from above‐described methods led to further activity‐
guided fractionation of water and methanol extracts using bioautography coupled with UHPLCLTQ
OrbiTrap MS4. It was determined that active fractions are predominantly formed by gallic acid
derivatives and flavonol glycosides. Among the most active phytochemicals, galloyl‐shikimic acid
was identified as the most abundant compound. These results point to a direct connection between
galloyl‐shikimic acid and the observed E. cicutarium antibacterial activity, and open several new
research approaches for future investigation

AB  - Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo L.) honey (STH) is widely used as part of traditional medicine
in the Mediterranean area, especially in the treatment of wounds, burns and infections. In
this study, we investigated the cyto-/genoprotective properties of STH at cell level following
short-term exposure to UVB radiation at 2 kJ/m2. Isolated human peripheral blood lymphocytes
(PBL) were selected as model cells. Phenolics in STH were determined using an ultrahigh-
performance liquid chromatograph (UHPLC) coupled to a linear ion trap-Orbitrap hybrid
mass spectrometer (LTQ Orbitrap MS), while homogentisic acid (HGA) was quantified using a
gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). Primary DNA damage in PBLs treated with
STH before and after irradiation was assessed by alkaline comet assay, while their viability
was determined using the apoptosis/necrosis assay. The levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive
substances (TBARS) and glutathione (GSH) were determined in plasma samples. STH applied
as pre-treatment at a concentration equivalent to its average daily portion efficiently counteracted
the cytotoxic and genotoxic effects and diminished UVB-induced oxidative stress.
Post-radiation treatment with STH was not as beneficial. Protective effects could be associated
to the complex phytochemical profile of STH and the high content of HGA (306.8mg/
kg). It was confirmed that an intake of a complex mixture of bioactive constituents as STH
prior to potential cyto/genotoxic insults stimulated a broad-spectrum of protective mechanisms,
including intracellular antioxidative defence and DNA repair systems that helped pretreated
cells to counteract harmful exposures more efficiently.

AB  - IntroductionThe aim of this study was to find the best conditions for the extraction of rutin and quercetin from Sophora flower in acacia honey as an extractant, and to formulate a new product – honey with added value.MethodsFor determination of the optimal extraction conditions of the above mentioned compounds, 10% m/m of the dried Sophora flower was added to honey and the concentration of rutin and quercetin was monitored, at 4 °C and room temperature at 1, 15, 40 and 90 day intervals. The analyses of rutin and quercetin content in honey were performed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet (UV) detection. The content of rutin and quercetin in the flower was also determined to check the quality of the herbal drug used, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of the extraction.ResultsThe extraction of rutin and quercetin, in a honey sample using 10% of the Sophora flower, stored at room temperature, for 40 days, was the most intense one (150.24 mg/kg of rutin and 1338.93 mg/kg of quercetin). Sophora flower corresponds to the pharmacopoeia requirements for the quality of an herbal drug. The concentrations of rutin and quercetin in acacia honey were 0.08 and 0.14 mg/kg, respectively. The concentration of rutin in honey from the melliferous pasture of the Sophora flower was 0.40 mg/kg, while quercetin was below the detection limit (0.1 mg/kg).ConclusionsHoney, enriched with rutin and quercetin from Sophora flower, had sensory acceptability and pleasant taste and aroma.

AB  - The current study aimed to phytochemically characterize (including a detailed phenolic profile) two endemic Balkan's species (Hieracium waldsteinii and Onosma stellulata) and determine their possible application as a source of natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. The main phenolic compound in both species (in all examined parts) was chlorogenic acid. Eriodictyol, genistein and naringenin were quantified only in H. waldsteinii while isorhamnetin-3-O-rutinoside and sinapic acid were characteristic for O. stellulata. The highest antioxidant activity (98 mg AAE/g dry weight for TAC assay) was ascribed to the flower extract of H. waldsteinii while the lowest results (∼4.3 mg AAE/g dry weight for FRP assay) were exhibited by the extracts obtained from the plant's stem. Antimicrobial assays showed moderate antibacterial, i. e., moderate/strong activity against several tested fungi (in particular Trichoderma viride). Correlation analysis revealed strong positive connection between phenolic compounds and reducing power of extracts as well as between total phenolic and flavonoid content and the obtained minimal inhibitory concentration recorded in antibacterial assays.

AB  - With the ever-growing concern for human health and wellbeing, the prenatal period ofdevelopment requires special attention since fetuses can be exposed to various metals through themother. Therefore, this study explored the status of selected toxic (Pb, Cd, Ni, As, Pt, Ce, Rb, Sr, U)and essential trace metals (Mn, Co, Cu, Zn, Se) in the umbilical cord (UC) sera, maternal sera, andplacental tissue samples of 92 healthy women with normal pregnancies. A further aim focuses on thepotential transplacental transfer of these trace metals. Based on the obtained levels of investigatedelements in clinical samples, it was observed that all of the trace metals cross the placental barrierand reach the fetus. Furthermore, statistical analysis revealed significant differences in levels oftoxic Ni, As, Cd, U, Sr, Rb, and essential Mn, Cu, and Zn between all three types of analyzed clinicalsamples. Correlation analysis highlighted As to be an element with levels that differed significantlybetween all tested samples. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used to enhance these findings.PCA demonstrated that Cd, Mn, Zn, Rb, Ce, U, and Sr were the most influential trace metals indistinguishing placenta from maternal and UC serum samples. As, Co, and Cu were responsible forthe clustering of maternal serum samples, and PCA demonstrated that the Pt level in UC sera wasresponsible for the clustering of these samples. Overall, the findings of this study could contribute toa better understanding of transplacental transfer of these trace metals, and shed a light on overalllevels of metal exposure in the population of healthy pregnant women and their fetuses.

AB  - The mobility of chemical elements in the soil-orchid system has been poorly studied. The aim of this study is to evaluate the uptake and mobility of several trace (Li, Ba, Sr, Ag, Hg, and B) and macronutrients (Ca, Mg, and K) in the orchid Anacamptis morio (L.) R.M.Bateman, Pridgeon & M.W.Chase from soils in western Serbia. The sampling sites are characterized by three different bedrock types—cherts, limestones, and serpentines, which are the source of the significant chemical differences in the elemental status of the soil and plant tissues. The four-step Community Bureau of Reference sequential extraction procedure was used to determine the distribution of fractions and predict their potential phytoavailability. The orchid and soil samples were analyzed for total elemental content analysis using ICP-OES. The greatest potential for plant availability was determined for Ba and Sr, representing about 80% of the total soil content. More than 40% of Li in the soils was found to be potentially phytoavailable. Significant correlations were found between the total content of Li, B, and Sr in soils. Between 38 and 60% of Li content and more than 80% of Ba and Sr content were determined to be potentially phytoavailable by sequential analysis. The highest bioconcentration factor (> 1) was determined in the case of B and Sr for all orchid organs, while translocation factor for Li was highest in tubers and leaves. The studied elements were mainly stored in tubers and roots, indicating the exclusion strategy of A. morio as a metal tolerance mechanism. The data obtained showed significant differences in metal content in soils and plants originating from sites with different parent materials, suggesting that bedrock type and associated soil properties are important factors that determine chemical element mobility and uptake.

AB  - This study presents a detailed characterization of 27 honey samples from the Tara Mountain region in Serbia using different comprehensive techniques and methods. The types of the honey samples were defined as monofloral (4 samples), honeydew (5 samples) and polyfloral (18 samples) honey based on determined polyphenol content, antioxidant activity, electrical conductivity and melissopalynological analyses. Physicochemical parameters such as pH (4.13–4.94), diastase activity (24.20–41.70 DN), acidity (14.60–29.70 meq/kg), content of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (in range below 5, up to 16.90 mg/kg), sucrose (0.20–3.90 g/100 g), and moisture content (15.01–19.23%) confirmed the required quality of the honey samples. Sensory analysis revealed honey characteristics favorable to consumers. Analyses of 19 phenolic compounds using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with a diode-array detection and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD-MS/MS) revealed six phenolic acids and 13 other compounds from the group of flavonoids and their glycosides. In all the samples the highest content was determined for p-coumaric acid, followed by caffeic acid and pinocembrin. Besides total phenolic content and radical scavenging activity, antimicrobial activity was also examined. Most honey samples showed bactericidal activity against Staphylococcus aureus and bacteriostatic activity against Escherichia coli, while none of the honey samples inhibited the growth of Candida albicans. Chemometric analyses were applied for an in-depth study of the results to further evaluate the characteristics of the honey samples studied. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used for assessing the differences in physicochemical parameters, polyphenols content and antioxidant capacity between honey samples. The unrooted cluster tree was used to group the samples based on the melissopalynological analyses.

AB  - Abstract
Background: Although still considered a safer alternative to classical cigarettes, growing body of work points to
harmful effects of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) affecting a range of cellular processes. The biological effect of
e-cigarettes needs to be investigated in more detail considering their widespread use.
Methods: In this study, we treated V79 lung fibroblasts with sub-cytotoxic concentration of e-cigarette liquids, with
and without nicotine. Mutagenicity was evaluated by HPRT assay, genotoxicity by comet assay and the effect on cel-
lular communication by metabolic cooperation assay. Additionally, comprehensive proteome analysis was performed
via high resolution, parallel accumulation serial fragmentation-PASEF mass spectrometry.
Results: E-cigarette liquid concentration used in this study showed no mutagenic or genotoxic effect, however it
negatively impacted metabolic cooperation between V79 cells. Both e-cigarette liquids induced significant depletion
in total number of proteins and impairment of mitochondrial function in treated cells. The focal adhesion proteins
were upregulated, which is in accordance with the results of metabolic cooperation assay. Increased presence of post-
translational modifications (PTMs), including carbonylation and direct oxidative modifications, was observed. Data are
available via ProteomeXchange with identifier PXD032071.
Conclusions: Our study revealed impairment of metabolic cooperation as well as significant proteome and PTMs
alterations in V79 cells treated with e-cigarette liquid warranting future studies on e-cigarettes health impact.

AB  - In this study we have reported the chemical composition of the essential oils obtained from the needles of twelve Pinus taxa, belonging to the subgenera Pinus (sections Pinus and Trifoliae) and Strobus (sect. Quinquefoliae). Monoterpenes dominated over sesquiterpenes in most of the investigated taxa of both subgenera, except in representatives of the subsection Pinaster, subgenus Pinus. α-Pinene was the most abundant terpene in eight pines, but other dominant terpenes were found in some taxa - trans-caryophyllene, germacrene D, abietadiene and β-pinene. In the subsect. Pinaster, the most dominant compounds varied from species to species. In addition, P. halepensis and P. pinaster had the highest percentage of diterpenes, while P. heldreichii was the richest in germacrene D. In the PCA and cluster analyses, three species from the subsect. Pinaster emerged as the most distant: P. halepensis, P. pinaster, and P. heldreichii. In addition, the possible taxonomic implications of the terpene profile in the analysed Pinus taxa were also discussed.

AB  - The aim of this study was to compare total phenolic content (TPC), radical-scavenging activity (RSA), total anthocyanin content (TAC), sugar and polyphenolic profiles of two apple cultivars (‘Discovery’ and ‘Red Aroma Orelind’) from organic and integrated production systems in climatic conditions of Western Norway. Sixteen sugars and four sugar alcohols and 19 polyphenols were found in the peel, but less polyphenols were detected in the pulp. The peel of both apples and in both production systems had significantly higher TPC and RSA than the pulp. The peel from integrated apples had higher TPC than the peel from organic apples, while organic apples had higher TAC than the integrated. Sucrose and glucose levels were higher in organic apples; fructose was cultivar dependent while minor sugars were higher in integrated fruits. The most abundant polyphenolic compound in the peel of the tested cultivars was quercetin 3-O-galactoside, while chlorogenic acid was most abundant in the pulp. Regarding polyphenols, phloretin, phloridzin, protocatechuic acid, baicalein and naringenin were higher in organic apple, while quercetin 3-O-galactoside, kaempferol 3-O-glucoside, chlorogenic acid and syringic acid was higher in integrated fruits. In conclusion, organic ‘Discovery’ and integrated ‘Red Aroma Orelind’ had higher bioavailability of health related compounds from the peel and the pulp.

AB  - The variety Prokupac is the dominant variety in the vineyards of Southern Serbia, which
produces quality wines of characteristic and unique tastes. In the agroecological conditions of the
Prokuplje vine district, the influence of manual defoliation on the phenolic profile of the wine
produced from the variety Prokupac was examined. Four experimental treatments with different
timings of manual defoliation were applied: early defoliation—treatment I, early defoliation—
treatment II, late defoliation—treatment III and the control. The phenolic profile of the wine
was determined for the three treatments of defoliation and the control treatment. Additionally,
a multivariate analysis was applied on the obtained results, together with already published data
(grape seeds and skins phenolic profiles). Identification and quantification of the phenolic compounds was performed using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) with an ultraviolet multi-diode detector (DAD) and mass detector with three analyzers—triple quadrupole (QQQ). Based on the obtained results, it was determined that there are significant differences between the experimental treatments in the content of individual polyphenols, total polyphenols and the antioxidant capacity. Twenty (20) phenolic compounds were identified in the wine samples of the experimental treatments. Defoliation significantly affected the variations of the contents of
phenolic acids and flavonoids. In treatment III, the highest content of gallic acid was obtained,
while the treatments with early defoliation did not differ in relation to the control sample. Early
defoliation in treatments I and II had an effect on the phenolic composition of the wine by favoring
the accumulation of flavonol, while the content of hydroxycinnamic acid and total anthocyanins
(TAC) was higher in treatment III. The TAC increases with later defoliation. The wines obtained by
the defoliation treatments did not show higher antioxidant activity compared to the control sample. A principal component analysis resulted in clustering of the samples based on the phenolic components characteristic for each group of samples.

AB  - n the world of complex smells in natural environment,feeding and mating represent two important olfactory‐guided behaviors inDrosophila melanogaster(Diptera:Drosophilidae). Diet affects the chemoprofile compositionof the individuals, which, indirectly, may significantly affecttheir mating success. In this study, chemoprofiles of re-cently mated flies belonging to fourD. melanogasterstrains,which were fed for many generations on different sub-strates (standard cornmeal—S strain; banana—B strain;carrot—C strain; tomato—T strain) were identified andquantified. In total, 67 chemical compounds were identi-fied: 48 compounds were extracted from males maintainedon banana and carrot, and 47 compounds from malesmaintained on cornmeal and tomato substrates, while totalof 60 compounds were identified in females from allstrains. The strains and the sexes significantly differed inqualitative nature of their chemoprofiles after mating. Sig-nificant differences in the relative amount of three majormale  pheromones  (cis‐vaccenyl  acetate—cVA,  (Z)‐7‐pentacosene, and (Z)‐7‐tricosene) and in female pheromone(Z,Z)‐7,11‐nonacosadiene among strains were also re-corded. Furthermore, multivariate analysis of variance(MANOVA) pointed to significant differences between irgin and mated individuals of all strains and within bothsexes. Differences in some of the well known sex pher-omones were also identified when comparing their relativeamount before and after mating. The presence of typicalmale pheromones in females, and vice versa may indicatetheir bidirectional transfer during copulation. Our resultsconfirm significant effect of mating status on cuticular hy-drocarbon (CHC) phenotypes in differently fedD. melano-gasterflies.

AB  - We examined essential oils (EOs) of Chamaecyparis lawsoniana and Thuja plicata (Cupressaceae), their antifeedant activity on Lymanthria dispar larvae and their antimicrobial activity. Studies of EOs showed that these two conifer species differed both in content of terpene classes and the major compounds. Total monoterpenes strongly dominated in T. plicata (96.4%), while C. lawsoniana was rich in both mono- and sesquiterpenes (40.8% and 30.3%, respectively) as well as in diterpenes (19.1%). The most dominant compounds of C. lawsoniana EO were: limonene (16.7%), oplopanonyl acetate (14.5%), beyerene (10.1%), and 13-epi-dolabradiene (6.7%). The dominant compound of T. plicata EOs was α-thujone (76.9%), followed by relatively small amounts of β- thujone (5.3%), sabinene (4.5%) and terpinene-4-ol (3.2%). The difference in EO compositions of the conifers was reflected on Lymantria dispar larvae performance. Larvae fed on the leaf discs treated by C. lawsoniana EO had a slight phagostimulatory effect at lower concentration shown by higher relative rate of food consumption and relative growth rate than the larvae in the control group. Contrastingly, leaf discs treated with EO of T. plicata EO had an antifeedant effect and lower relative consumption rate (RCR) and relative growth rate RGR than the larvae in the control group. Both tested EOs influenced substantially the colony growth of the subjected Phytophthora plurivora and P. quercina. Namely, 100% inhibitory effect was recorded at concentration of 0.1% in the case of C. lawsoniana EO, whereas of T. plicata colonies did not grow at 0.5% concentration. The implications of these findings and possibility of using the tested EOs in further experiments in vitro and in vivo are discussed.

AB  - Pygidial gland secretions are used as repellent defensive allomones in ground beetles. We provide the first precise data on the chemical composition and antimicrobial potency of the secretion of the blue ground beetle, as well as on the morphology of its pygidial glands. The latter structures were not previously studied chemoecologically and morphologically, and we hypothesized that their secretion may have some antimicrobial action, as is the case with certain Carabus species. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was used to identify methacrylic and angelic acids as dominant chemicals in the secretion from individuals of three populations of the blue ground beetle in Serbia. We tested its secretion against selected strains of medically important microorganisms. The secretion exibits antimicrobial action against certain bacterial species and all tested micromycetes. The most significant antifungal effect of the secretion was against Penicillium ochrochloron, which is more sensitive to the secretion than to commercial antifungal drugs ketoconazole and bifonazole. Bifonazole achieved minimum inhibitory concentrations against Trichoderma viride at more than three times higher value than did the secretion, indicating a significant antifungal effect of the secretion against this micromycete as well. Additionally, we tested commercially available standards of two dominant chemicals in the secretion to investigate their interaction and antimicrobial role in the secretion. Finally, we describe all glandular morpho-functional units of the blue ground beetle. Our results suggest that the secretion of the blue ground beetle may serve not only defensive but also antimicrobial functions, which likely aid the survival of this beetle in the microbial-rich forest litter habitat.

AB  - The necessity for developing novel cytostatic agents with improved activities and reduced side-effects to tackle cancer prompted us to investigate mitochondria-targeted compounds, an approach that is gaining attention for the selective transportation of cytotoxic agents. We envisioned the possibility of conjugating a phenethyl alcohol motif, decorated with a series of phenol-based substituents on the aryl moiety, with a triphenyl phosphonium scaffold (a mitochondria-directed vector), through a hydrocarbon chain of different lengths. Thus, such compounds that incorporate the phenethyl skeleton can be considered as masked phenolic compounds derived from relevant natural counterparts found in olive tree (e.g. tyrosol, hydroxytyrosol). Title compounds exhibited very strong in vitro antiproliferative activities against the panel of six human tumor cell lines tested, with GI50 values ranging from the nanomolar (0.026 ± 0.010 μM for 36) to the submicromolar range in most of the cases; this represents an improvement of up to 350-fold compared to classical chemotherapeutic agents, like 5-fluorouracil or cisplatin. Interestingly, decrease in the linker length led to an increase of GI50 values against non-tumor cells, thus allowing a remarkable improvement of selectivity (SI up to 269). The very promising antiproliferative activities prompted us to further investigate their behaviour against multidrug resistant cell lines (MDR). The results indicated a reduced sensitivity of the multidrug resistant cells to compounds, probably due to P-gp-mediated efflux of these antiproliferative agents. Interestingly, activities were completely restored to the same levels by co-administration of tariquidar, a well-known inhibitor of P-gp. Flow cytometry analysis on sensitive cell lines revealed a decrease in the percentage of cells in G1 phase accompanied by increase in S and G2/M phases. In addition, a significant increase in subG1 area, was observed. These results are compatible with the necrotic and apoptotic cell death detected in the Annexin V assay, and with the depolarization of the mitochondria membrane. Thus, the new mitochondriotropic agents reported herein can be considered as promising antiproliferative agents, endowed with remarkable potency and selectivity, including MDR cells, upon co-administration with a pump-efflux inhibitor.

AB  - The strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo L., Ericaceae family) is an evergreen Mediterranean
shrub whose leaves and fruits are used in traditional medicine due to their antioxidant, antimicrobial,
antidiabetic, diuretic, and antiproliferative properties. The health benefits are mainly attributed to the
presence of phenolic compounds. The aim of this study was to compare the phenolic profiles, total
phenolic content (TPC), and radical scavenging activity (RSA) of A. unedo leaves and fruits collected
at two locations in Croatia. Phenolic profiles were identified using an ultra-high-performance liquid
chromatograph (UHPLC) coupled with a hybrid mass spectrometer (LTQ Orbitrap MS). TPC was
determined by Folin–Ciocalteu’s assay, while RSA was investigated using DPPH reagent. A total of
64 phenolics (60 and 42 compounds in leaves and fruits, respectively) were identified. Hyperoside
and flavan-3-ols were predominant compounds in leaves, while gallocatechin and catechin were
the major compounds found in fruits. To the authors’ knowledge, 16 and 5 phenolics in leaves and
fruits, respectively, were reported for the first time. Principal component analysis (PCA) showed
that UHPLC-LTQ Orbitrap MS could be used to identify which phenolics were able to discriminate
samples regarding plant tissue and geographical origin. TPC in leaves and fruits were in the ranges of
67.07–104.74 and 16.78–25.86 mg gallic acid equivalents (GAE)/g dried weight (dw), respectively. RSA
for leaves and fruits were in the ranges of 408.92–430.98 and 74.30–104.04 µmol Trolox equivalents
(TE)/g dw, respectively. The number of identified phenolics was lower in fruits compared to leaves.
Such a large number of bioactive phenolics identified and the strong antioxidant activity pointed to
A. unedo as a promising health-promoting plant and natural food preservative.

AB  - In our previous research we have explored concentrations of 16 elements in samples collected from 3 different environments: Golija (rural region), Belgrade (urban region) and Zajača (industrial region). These three locations were chosen due to their distinctly different degrees of urbanization and industrialization. Macroelements (Ca, K, Mg, Na), microelements (Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn) and non-essential elements (Al, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Ni, Pb, Sr) were determined in the whole body of honeybees, but the major novelty of the research was that hemolymph of the bees was analysed as well. Significant spatial but also seasonal variations in content of bioelements and non-essential elements were observed. These findings have raised several important questions which are addressed in our current study. In order to better understand how bees’ environment does affects concentrations of elements mentioned above, dust and pollen collected from the same locations were analysed. They represent 2 major sources of bio elements and toxic elements for the bees: food and atmospheric deposition. For the better understanding of dynamics of investigated elements the scope of our research was further extended to the analysis of bee bread, honey, crops, wax, propolis, larvae and pupae. The samples were digested in accordance with the US EPA SW-846 Method 3052. Closed microwave digestion system (ETHOS 1, Advanced Microwave Digestion System, Milestone, Italy) was used for digestion with 5 to 8 ml of concentrated HNO3  and 1 or 2 ml of concentrated H2 O2  (depending on the mass and type of the sample). Concentrations of: Al, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb, Sr and Zn were determined by ICP-OES (iCAP 6500Duo, Thermo Scientific). Very low concentrations of: Co, Cr, Cd and Pb, which occurred in some samples were confirmed by ICP-MS (iCAP-Q-ICP-MS, Termo Scientific). Ratios between concentrations in the samples from industrial region and urban region were calculated and compared for different matrices. Concentrations of toxic metals such as Pb and Cd were significantly elevated in dust samples from the industrial site, and similar trend was observed for pollen, bee bread, wax, propolis, and the whole bees. Elevation of concentrations was not observed (or it was present in significantly lesser extent) for the samples of honey, larvae and pupae.

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  - The study of the chemical composition of wines is nowadays a topic of great interest because of the importance of this market, especially in Italy, and also considering the numerous cases of falsification of famous and very expensive wines. The present paper focused on the analysis of metals and polyphenols in Italian wines belonging to different provenance and types. At this purpose 20 elements were quantified by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and ICP mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Regarding polyphenols, a total of 32 were quantified, among 6 were anthocyanins. Furthermore, in 4 samples (1 rosè and 3 red wines) 42 anthocyanins and related compounds were identified by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC)-Orbitrap MS technique (among these, 6 were also quantified). Non-anthocyanins were determined using UHPLC coupled with a diode array detector and triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer (UHPLC–DAD-QqQ-MS). Total phenolic content (TPC) and radical scavenging activity (RSA) were measured using spectrophotometric methods. The results obtained by elemental techniques were submitted to principal components analysis (PCA) allowing to get information on both geographical and botanical origin of the examined wine samples. Some polyphenols have been detected in higher concentrations only in a certain type of wine, as for example in the case of Grechetto wine. Most of the identified anthocyanin derivatives (pyranoanthocyanins) are formed during the aging of wine by reaction with the other wine components.

AB  - Flower strips of French Marigold are commonly used pest repellents in potato fields. However, the effect of French Marigold volatiles on potato metabolism, physiology and induced defense is unknown. Thus, a microarray transcriptome analysis was performed to study the effects of French Marigold essential oil (EO) on laboratory-grown potato. After 8 h of exposure to EO, with gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS)-detected terpinolene and limonene as dominant compounds, 2796 transcripts were differentially expressed with fold change >2 compared to expression in controls. A slightly higher number of transcripts had suppressed expression (1493 down- vs. 1303 up-regulated). Since transcripts, annotated to different photosynthesis-related processes, were mostly down-regulated, we selected a set of 10 genes involved in the leaf starch metabolism pathway, and validated microarray patterns using quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). Except for decreased synthesis and induced decomposition of starch granule in leaves, 8 h long EO exposure slightly elevated the accumulation of sucrose compared to glucose and fructose in subjected potato plants. An in vitro feeding bioassay with Colorado potato beetle showed that EO-induced alternations on transcriptional level and in the sugars’ metabolism caused the enhancement of feeding behavior and overall development of the tested larvae. Results of comprehensive analysis of transcriptional responses in potato exposed to French Marigold EO provide a basis for further elucidation of molecular mechanisms underlying eco-physiological interactions in companion planting cropping systems.
