AB  - In this article, cytotoxicity, the mechanisms of cytotoxic activity, genotoxicity, and interaction with DNA and proteins, of two Cu(II) complexes with a salicylaldehyde derivative (4-(diethylamino)salicylaldehyde) and α-diimine (2,2′-bipyridine (bipy) and 1,10-phenanthroline (phen)) are reported. Both Cu(II) complexes performed cytotoxic effects against all tested malignant cell lines. Complexes exerted highest cytotoxicity against HeLa and A375 malignant cell lines. The cytotoxic activity of Cu(II) complex with phen as a α-diimine co-ligand was significantly higher in comparison with cytotoxic activity of Cu(II) complex with bipy. Pretreatment with specific inhibitors of caspase-3, caspase-8 or caspase-9, in order to clear up the mode of cell death triggered by two Cu(II) complexes in HeLa cells, indicated the ability of these complexes to induce apoptosis through activation of target caspases. Cu(II)-phen complex exhibited significant antioxidant activity compared with Cu(II)-bipy complex, and showed a better effect on reducing intracellular ROS levels in HeLa cells. Tested complexes did not display genotoxic potential in human peripheral blood leucocytes, but exhibited an antigenotoxic effect in post-treatment, after H2O2 exposure. The study of the in vitro biological properties regarding their affinity towards CT (calf-thymus) DNA and serum albumins showed that the compounds can intercalate to CT DNA, and bind reversibly and tightly to the albumins. Molecular docking studies of the ability of compounds to bind to biomacromolecules are consistent with in vitro studies.

AB  - Production of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is a trending topic due to their prebiotic effect becoming increasingly important for the modern human diet. The most suitable process for FOS production is the one using fungal inulinases. Introduction of new fungal inulinase producers and their implementation in production of inulinase enzymes is therefore gaining interest. This study provides a new approach to FOS synthesis by fungal enzyme complex without prior separation of any specific enzyme. Inulinase enzyme complexes could be used for the synthesis of FOS in two possible ways – hydrolysis of inulin (FOSh) and transfructosylation process of sucrose (FOSs), as demonstrated here. Depending on the fungal growth inducing substrate, a variety of inulinase enzyme complexes was obtained – one of which was most successful in production of FOSh and another one of FOSs. Substrates derived from crops: triticale, wheat bran, Jerusalem artichoke and Aspergillus welwitschiae isolate, previously proven as safe for use in food, were utilized for production of inulinase enzyme cocktails. The highest FOSs production was obtained by enzyme complex rich in β-fructofuranosidase, while the highest FOSh production was obtained by enzyme complex rich in endoinulinase. Both FOSh and FOSs showed antioxidant potential according to ABTS and ORAC, which classifies them as a suitable additive in functional food. Simultaneous zymographic detection of inulinase enzymes, which could contribute to expansion of the knowledge on fungal enzymes, was developed and applied here. It demonstrated the presence of different inulinase isoforms depending on fungal growth substrate. These findings, which rely on the innate ability of fungi to co-produce all inulinases from a cocktail, could be useful as a new, easy approach to FOS production by fungal enzymes without their separation and purification, contributing to cheaper and faster production processes. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Introduction Ramonda serbica and R. nathaliae are resurrection plants that have the remarkable ability to survive the complete desiccation of their vegetative organs (i.e. leaves, stem, roots) during periods of drought and rapidly revive when rewatered and rehydrated. Objective To investigate metabolic changes in R. serbica and R. nathaliae during their desiccation and recovery process Methods Proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS)-based metabolomics approach coupled with multivariate data analysis was utilised to identify the metabolomes of the plants from 90 biological replicates. Results Sucrose and the polyphenolic glycoside myconoside were predominant in almost equal amounts in all samples studied, regardless of their water content at sampling. During the dehydration process, a decrease in the relative content of fructose, galactose, and galactinol was observed while the contents of those metabolites were preserved in the partially rehydrated plants. Raffinose and myo-inositol were accumulated in dry samples. Conclusion Using 1H-NMR and GC–MS as two complementary analytical platforms provided a more complete picture of the metabolite composition for investigation of the desiccation and recovery process in resurrection plants.

AB  - Climate variables including temperature, rainfall intensity, rainfall acidity, and lithological properties are among the most important factors affecting rock weathering. However, the relative contribution of these four factors on rock weathering, especially on chemical weathering, is still unclear. In this study, we carried out a series of weathering-leaching rainfall simulations on four types of badland sediments under controlled conditions of two levels of temperature, rainfall intensity, and rainfall acidity based on the real field data from representative weather scenarios. The main objectives are 1) to explore the progressive change of sample surface and leachate characteristics and 2) to reveal the independent effects of temperature, rainfall intensity, rainfall acidity, and lithology and their relative contribution as well, on both mechanical and chemical weathering. Qualitative analysis on crack development and fragmentation of sample surface and quantitative analysis on the leachate volume, pH, electrical conductivity, and total cation and anion releases of sample leachate together demonstrated that for the investigated sediments, under the conditions of temperature, intensity, and acidity of rain that can be achieved in nature, high drying temperature obviously increases mechanical disintegration by promoting the rate and magnitude of moisture variations (wetting–drying alterations), while high rainfall intensity and acid rain have no obvious effect. Impact and importance of the drying process caused by high temperature between wetting events need more attention, rather than high rainfall intensity. Low temperature, high rainfall intensity, and acid rain contributing more hydrogen ions required for cation exchanges, rock type with more soluble minerals, all promote chemical weathering, and the influence of climatic and lithological factors on chemical weathering decreases in the following order: mineral composition> rainfall intensity > temperature > rainfall acidity. Climatic variations on temperature can modify weathering processes and in that way conditioned hydro-geomorphological processes in badland areas. Such changes should be considered for direct and indirect implications on badland dynamics.

Impact and importance of the drying process caused by high temperature between wetting events need more attention, rather than high rainfall intensity. Low temperature, high rainfall intensity, and acid rain contributing more hydrogen ions required for cation exchanges, rock type with more soluble minerals, all promote chemical weathering, and the influence of climatic and lithological factors on chemical weathering decreases in the following order: mineral composition> rainfall intensity > temperature > rainfall acidity. Climatic variations on temperature can modify weathering processes and in that way conditioned hydro-geomorphological processes in badland areas. Such changes should be considered for direct and indirect implications on badland dynamics.",

AB  - In this study, we have analysed the influence of cation–π interactions on stability and properties of superoxide dismutase (SOD) active centres. The number of interactions formed by arginine is higher than by lysine in the cat­ionic group, while those formed by histidine are comparatively higher in the π group. The energy contribution resulting from most frequent cation–π interact­ions was in the lower range of strong hydrogen bonds. The cation–π interact­ions involving transition metal ions as cation have energy more negative than –418.4 kJ mol-1. The stabilization centres for these proteins showed that all the residues involved in cation–π interactions were important in locating one or more of such centres. The majority of the residues involved in cation–p inter­actions were evolutionarily conserved and might have a significant contribution towards the stability of SOD proteins. The results presented in this work can be very useful for understanding the contribution of cation–π interactions to the stability of SOD active centres.

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  - Increasing pollutant levels in surface water are a very important problem in developing countries. In Serbia, the largest rivers are transboundary rivers that cross the border already polluted. Taking this into account, evaluation of the distribution characteristics, ecological risk, and sources of toxic elements in river water and surface sediments in the watercourses of the Vlasina watershed is of great significance for the protection of water resources in Serbia. A total of 17 sediment and 18 water samples were collected and analyzed by Inductively Coupled Plasma—Optical Emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma—Mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to determine micro- and macroelements contents. The geo-accumulation index (Igeo) was applied to determine and classify the magnitude of toxic element pollution in this river sediment. The contents of the studied toxic elements were below water and sediment quality guidelines. For studied river water, results of principal component analysis (PCA) indicated the difference in behavior of Cr, Mn, Ni, Cu, and As and V, respectively. Cluster analysis (CA) classified water samples according to As and Cu content. The PCA results revealed that lead in river sediments had different behavior than other elements and can be associated mainly with anthropogenic sources. According to the degree of Igeo, the majority of sediments in the Vlasina region were uncontaminated regarding studied toxic elements. The origin of elements is mostly from natural processes such as soil and rock weathering.

AB  - Structural modification of different carbon-based nanomaterials is often necessary to
improve their morphology and optical properties, particularly the incorporation of N-atoms in
graphene quantum dots (GQDs). Here, a clean, simple, one-step, and eco-friendly method for
N-doping of GQDs using gamma irradiation is reported. GQDs were irradiated in the presence
of the different ethylenediamine (EDA) amounts (1 g, 5 g, and 10 g) and the highest % of N was
detected in the presence of 10 g. N-doped GQDs emitted strong, blue photoluminescence (PL).
Photoluminescence quantum yield was increased from 1.45, as obtained for non-irradiated dots,
to 7.24% for those irradiated in the presence of 1 g of EDA. Modified GQDs were investigated as
a PL probe for the detection of insecticide Carbofuran (2,2-Dimethyl-2,3-dihydro-1-benzofuran-7-
yl methylcarbamate) and herbicide Amitrole (3-amino-1,2,4-triazole). The limit of detection was
5.4 µmol L−1
for Carbofuran. For the first time, Amitrole was detected by GQDs in a turn-off/turn-on
mechanism using Pd(II) ions as a quenching agent. First, Pd(II) ions were quenched (turn-off) PL
of GQDs, while after Amitrole addition, PL was recovered linearly with Amitrole concentration
(turn-on). LOD was 2.03 µmol L−1
. These results suggest that modified GQDs can be used as an
efficient new material for Carbofuran and Amitrole detection. Furthermore, the phototoxicity of dots
was investigated on both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains. When bacterial cells
were exposed to different GQD concentrations and illuminated with light of 470 nm wavelength, the
toxic effects were not observed.

AB  - Considering that acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition is the most important mode of action expected of a potential drug used for the treatment of symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), our previous pilot study of 4-aminoquinolines as potential human cholinesterase inhibitors was extended to twenty-two new structurally distinct 4-aminoquinolines bearing an adamantane moiety. Inhibition studies revealed that all of the compounds were very potent inhibitors of AChE and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), with inhibition constants (Ki) ranging between 0.075 and 25 µM. The tested compounds exhibited a modest selectivity between the two cholinesterases; the most selective for BChE was compound 14, which displayed a 10 times higher preference, while compound 19 was a 5.8 times more potent inhibitor of AChE. Most of the compounds were estimated to be able to cross the blood–brain barrier (BBB) by passive transport. Evaluation of druglikeness singled out fourteen compounds with possible oral route of administration. The tested compounds displayed modest but generally higher antioxidant activity than the structurally similar AD drug tacrine. Compound 19 showed the highest reducing power, comparable to those of standard antioxidants. Considering their simple structure, high inhibition of AChE and BChE, and ability to cross the BBB, 4-aminoquinoline-based adamantanes show promise as structural scaffolds for further design of novel central nervous system drugs. Among them, two compounds stand out: compound 5 as the most potent inhibitor of both cholinesterases with a Ki constant in low nano molar range and the potential to cross the BBB, and compound 8, which met all our requirements, including high cholinesterase inhibition, good oral bioavailability, and antioxidative effect. The QSAR model revealed that AChE and BChE inhibition was mainly influenced by the ring and topological descriptors MCD, Nnum, RP, and RSIpw3, which defined the shape, conformational flexibility, and surface properties of the molecules

AB  - Despite many advantages, the practical application of fullerene C60 and curcumin (CUR) has been limited by their hydrophobic nature, deficient solubility in aqueous media and, therefore, poor bioavailability. In this study, aqueous nanoformulations containing C60 and CUR in the absence and presence of three solubility enhancers, β-cyclodextrin (CD), Tween 80 (T80) and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), were prepared and subjected to the antioxidant activity assessment. The content of C60 and CUR, stability, size and morphology of nanoparticles were determined using UV–vis, DLS and SEM techniques. Contrary to better solubility of pure C60 than the corresponding C60-CUR system, the solubilization of CUR in hybrid suspensions was improved compared to corresponding pure CUR suspensions, with the exception of the C60-CUR-PVP formulation. The DLS results revealed nearly monodisperse nature of CUR-T80 nanoformulation, while other ones ranged from widely dispersed to polydispersed. Depending on the type of solubilizer, similarity was observed in the particle size distributions of T80- and PVP-coated nanoformulations as well as water and CD nanoformulations. The presence of T80 differently and significantly reduces the particle size in all three nanoformulations, while PVP slightly reduces CUR-based nanoparticles but increases the size of C60 nanoparticles. Zeta potential values, ranging from − 9 mV to − 34 mV, show variation in the starting stability of nanoparticles, from unstable or relatively stable three PVP formulations and C60-T80 to highly stable CUR-T80 and C60-water. Compared to water nanoformulations as a control, SEM images of dispersant-coated nanoparticles lost the visible morphology of active components, showing variation in their morphology depending on the type of dispersant and active component used. Nanoformulations containing CUR in PVP and T80 expressed a very good antioxidant potential in DPPH radical scavenging assay, much stronger than ascorbic acid. At the same time, a moderate to high antioxidant activity in β-carotene bleaching assay was reached in PVP and T80 nanoformulations containing C60, CUR, and their noncovalent hybrid, as well. Our studies have shown that T80 and PVP colloidal systems containing C60-CUR hybrid, but also their individual components, can be used as stable antioxidant nanoformulations with potential application in the field of food and pharmacology.

AB  - Candida albicans remains the main causal agent of candidiasis, the most common fungal infection with disturbingly high mortality rates worldwide. The limited diversity and efficacy of clinical antifungal drugs, exacerbated by emerging drug resistance, have resulted in the failure of current antifungal therapies. This imposes an urgent demand for the development of innovative strategies for effective eradication of candidal infections. While the existing clinical drugs display fungicidal or fungistatic activity, the strategy specifically targeting C. albicans filamentation, as the most important virulence trait, represents an attractive approach for overcoming the drawbacks related to clinical antifungals. The results acquired in this study revealed the significant potential of 5-aminotetrazoles as a new class of effective and safe anti-virulence agents. Moreover, these novel agents were active when applied both alone and in combination with clinically approved polyenes. Complete prevention of C. albicans morphogenetic yeast-to-hyphae transition was achieved at doses as low as 1.3 μM under conditions mimicking various filamentation-responsive stimuli in the human body, while no cardio- or hepatotoxicity was observed at doses as high as 200 μM. The treatment of C. albicans-infected zebrafish embryos with nystatin alone had low efficacy, while the combination of nystatin and selected 5-aminotetrazoles prevented fungal filamentation, successfully eliminating the infection and rescuing the infected embryos from lethal disseminated candidiasis. In addition, the most potent anti-virulence 5-aminotetrazole prevented C. albicans in developing the resistance to nystatin when applied in combination, keeping the fungus sensitive to the antifungal drug.

AB  - This study aims to determine the palaeoenvironmental characteristics and activity patterns of Obrovac-type archaeological sites in Western Serbia, dated to the Late Neolithic/Early Eneolithic period, ∼5th millennium BC. These mound-like sites, enclosed by a wide ditch, that are not known in other parts of the central Balkan area, have long intrigued archaeologists investigating their origin and function over the last few decades.In this study, for the first time, organic-geochemical analysis of paleosol samples from the Obrovac-type sites was applied with the aim of palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. Additionally, organic carbon content and anion analysis of 58 subsoil samples from these settlements were performed to determine the use of space and activity zones.The analysis of biomarkers from selected sites suggests significant plant biodiversity in the Mačva region during the Late Neolithic/Early Eneolithic. Distribution of n-alkanes with the maximum at n-C25 and predominance of C30 hop-22(29)-ene among hopanoids in samples from Obrovac type-sites indisputably indicates that macrophytes are a dominant source of organic matter, implying a marshy and floodplain depositional environment. On the other side, a strong signal of long-chain n-alkanes indicates the input of terrestrial plants into the precursor biomass, confirming that this environment was habitable for the first settlers in this region. Anion-based analysis delineates certain activity zones, demonstrating that Obrovac type-sites manifest rather complex spatial behavior despite their relatively small size and available space.

AB  - In this paper, Cu(II), Mn(II) and Zn(II) complexes with N,N,N-trimethyl-2-oxo-2-(2-(1-(thiazol-2-yl)ethylidene)hydrazinyl)ethan-1-aminium chloride (HL1Cl) were synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis and DFT calculations. In all three complexes, a ligand (L1) is coordinated in a deprotonated formally neutral zwitterionic form via NNO donor set atoms. Cu(II) and Zn(II) form mononuclear penta-coordinated complexes [CuL1(N3)(CH3OH)]BF4 and [ZnL1(N3)2], respectively, while Mn(II) forms a binuclear [Mn2L12(μ-1,1-N3)2(N3)2]·2CH3OH complex, with unusual distorted trigonal-prismatic geometry around the metal centers. The antimicrobial activity of these complexes was tested against a panel of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, two yeasts and one fungal strain. The binuclear Mn(II) complex showed antifungal activity of similar intensity to amphotericin B. Based on the results of the brine shrimp test and DPPH radical scavenging activity, the most active Cu(II) and Mn(II) complexes were selected for evaluation of cytotoxic activity against five malignant cancer cell lines (HeLa, A375, MCF7, PC-3 and A549) and one normal cell line HaCaT. Both complexes showed significant activity. It should be pointed out that the activity of the Mn(II) complex against the MCF7 breast cancer cell line is only slightly weaker than that of cisplatin, but with selectivity to the tumor cell line in comparison to normal HaCaT cells, which is non-existent in the case of cisplatin.

AB  - In this work hydrogen production activity of a series of the nickel-loaded, nitrogen-doped titanate-based photocatalysts was tested by water splitting reaction in isopropanol-water mixture. The utilization of ammonium ions during catalyst synthesis and subsequent calcination led to successful formation of nitrogen-doped nanotubular titanates with lower sodium content, favored titanate-to-anatase transformation and enhanced textural, morphological and interface properties. The photocatalytic tests revealed that hydrogen production activity of nitrogen-doped titanates is ten times higher compared to nitrogen-free titanates. The presence of highly photoactive anatase phase, improved anatase crystallinity and lower amount of sodium ions are found to be decisive factors for increased hydrogen production activity. The optimal nickel loading was determined and the variation in photocatalytic activity with reduction temperature was explained. Stability tests gave quantitative analysis of the effects of reaction products accumulation and photocorrosion on the catalyst deactivation.

AB  - Adrenergic receptors are among the most studied G protein-coupled receptors. Activation or blockade of these receptors is a major therapeutic approach for the treatment of numerous disorders such as cardiac hypertrophy, congestive heart failure, hypertension, angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmias, depression, benign prostate hyperplasia, anaphylaxis, asthma, and hyperthyroidism. Among all nine cloned adrenoceptor subtypes and the subsequent development of animal models, a significant target for various neurological conditions treatment is alpha1-adrenergic receptors. 2-{[4-(2-Methoxyphenyl)piperazin-1-yl]alkyl}-1H-benzo[d]imidazoles, their 5 substituted derivatives, and structurally similar, arylpiperazine based alpha1-adrenergic receptors antagonists (trazodone, naftopidil, and urapidil) have been subjects of comparative analysis. Most of the novel compounds showed alpha1-adrenergic affinity in the range from 22 nM to 250 nM. The in silico docking and molecular dynamics simulations, binding data together with absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) calculations identified the promising lead compounds. The results brought out the conclusions which allowed us to propose a rationale for the activity of these molecules and to highlight six compounds (2-5, 8, and 12) that exhibited an acceptable pharmacokinetic profile to the advanced investigation as the potential alpha1-adrenergic receptor antagonists.

The Cu(II) complex consists of ligand coordinated in a deprotonated, formally neutral zwitter-ionic form, via NNO atoms, one azido ligand and one methanol molecule. The Cu(II) complex was selected due to results of the cytotoxic activity, the brine shrimp test and DPPH radical scavenging activity, which were previously performed. The effects of Cu(II) complex on cell cycle phase distribution of cervical adenocarcinoma HeLa cells were investigated in order to examine the mechanisms of its anticancer activity. The measurement of intracellular ROS levels in HeLa and HaCaT cell lines were evaluated in order to explore their possible generation and the role in cytotoxic activity. The possible anti-invasive and anti-angiogenic properties of Cu(II) complex were evaluated. DNA binding experiments, including fluorescence displacement study and DNA cleavage experiments, were performed in order to obtain information on the type of DNA-metal complex interactions. © 2022 Serbian Chemical Society.

AB  - Abstract
Purpose The Great War Island (GWI) is a landform of exceptional features and a protected area located in the center of
Belgrade at the Sava and Danube River’s confluence. The position of GWI causes a large number of possible hydrocar-
bons inputs that influence the quality of both river waters and sediments. The main objective of this research is to assess
the distribution and source of hydrocarbons in sediments deposited at the GWI depending on the river’s flow regimes and
depositional environment.
Material and methods Sediment samples were collected from 16 sites (11 sites along the GWI’s coast, 4 sites from the
inner of the Island, and 1 specific wetland site). The grain size was determined using a standard wet sieving procedure. The
extractable organic matter (OM) was quantified after Soxhlet extraction, and aliphatic and aromatic fractions were isolated
by column chromatography. n-Alkanes, diterpanes, terpanes, steranes, and 16 PAHs are analyzed by gas chromatography-
mass spectrometry.
Results and discussion Sand fraction predominates in coastal samples, and clay size fraction in the samples from the inner
island environment. The predominance of odd higher n-alkanes indicates the terrestrial origin of OM, while the distribution
of lower n-alkanes indicates a certain proportion of algae, bacteria, and/or high maturity of OM. The presence of oil-type
pollutants is confirmed by thermodynamically stable biomarker isomers and/or the presence of unresolved complex mixture
(UCM). Inner island samples are characterized by the largest amount of Corg (up 6%), indicating high bioproductivity and
good preservation of OM. Samples from wetland environment are distinguished by the domination of pimaranes and phyl-
locladanes among saturated hydrocarbons.
Conclusions This study revealed that sediments of the GWI mainly contain native OM with a certain anthropogenic input.
The native OM predominately comes from higher terrestrial plants (Salix alba, Populus nigra, Fraxinus viridis, Taxodium
distichum Rich.), followed by various types of grasses, macrophytes (Salvinia natans, Nymphaea alba), bacteria, algae, and
phytoplankton. Anthropogenic OM originates from petroleum, but also combustion products arrived by deposition from
the air and runoff.
