AB  - Due to the similar chemical properties of Ni2+ and Co2+, several dozens of adsorptive stripping voltammetric (AdSV) methods have been developed for their simultaneous determination. The question was would there be some benefits if a stripping method made for simultaneous determination of Ni2+ and Co2+ will be optimized for the determination of only one of them (Ni2+). It was found that the optimized method has for an order of magnitude lower LOQ (1.89×10−10 M), an order of magnitude lower influence of Co2+, and the applicability of one calibration line for four orders of magnitude of Ni2+ concentration. The influence of some common anions and cations has been examined. The developed method was successfully applied for nickel content determination in real samples. The suitability of the developed method for the determination of Co2+ from the same solution in the second run, upon optimizations of deposition potential and time, was also explored. The LOQ obtained for Co2+ (3.61×10−11 M) is almost two orders of magnitude lower than LOQ of the method for simultaneous determination of both cations and, its LOD and LOQ are among few lowest obtained by AdSV methods for Co2+ determination. The developed method for Ni2+ and Co2+ determination from the same solution in two successive runs has significantly better analytical performances than the starting method for their simultaneous determination in one run.

AB  - We present the green, highly atom-economical, solid-state silica gel-catalyzed synthesis of polysubstituted 1,4- and 1,2-dihydropyridines (DHPs) from commercially available materials, amines and ethyl propiolate. The DHP skeleton was assembled by heating the reactants and silica gel in a closed vessel. Aliphatic amines provided 1,4-isomers as the main or only DHP products, but the reactions of aromatic amines yielded a mixture of 1,4- and 1,2-isomers. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of the formation of a 1,2-DHP structure by the reaction of an amine with propiolic ester. Addition of 1 mass percent of H2SO4 to silica gel shifted the product distribution to 1,4-DHP as the main or the only isomer obtained. Experimental and theoretical analyses led to the identification of two key intermediates en route to DHPs and the explanation of the observed regioisomeric ratios. 1,2-DHPs show blue-cyan fluorescence in MeOH with the quantum yield Φ = 0.10–0.22 relative to quinine sulfate Φ = 0.58 and 1,4-DHPs show blue-violet fluorescence with Φ = 0.09–0.81.

AB  - Heterocyclic pharmacophores such as thiazole and quinoline rings have a significant role in medicinal chemistry. They are considered privileged structures since they constitute several Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved drugs for cancer treatment. Herein, we report the synthesis, in silico evaluation of the ADMET profiles, and in vitro investigation of the anticancer activity of a series of novel thiazolyl-hydrazones based on the 8-quinoline (1a–c), 2-quinoline (2a–c), and 8-hydroxy-2-quinolyl moiety (3a–c). The panel of several human cancer cell lines and the nontumorigenic human embryonic kidney cell line HEK-293 were used to evaluate the compound-mediated in vitro anticancer activities, leading to [2-(2-(quinolyl-8-ol-2-ylmethylene)hydrazinyl)]-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)-1,3-thiazole (3c) as the most promising compound. The study revealed that 3c blocks the cell-cycle progression of a human colon cancer cell line (HCT-116) in the S phase and induces DNA double-strand breaks. Also, our findings demonstrate that 3c accumulates in lysosomes, ultimately leading to the cell death of the hepatocellular carcinoma cell line (Hep-G2) and HCT-116 cells, by the mechanism of autophagy inhibition.

AB  - Serotonin receptors modulate numerous behavioral and neuropsychological processes. Therefore, they are the target for the action of many drugs, such as antipsychotics, antidepressants, antiemetics, migraine remedies, and many others. The 5-HT1A receptors have been involved in the pathogenesis and treatment of anxiety and depression and represent a promising target for new drugs with reduced extrapyramidal side effects. In most antidepressants, a piperazine-based structural motif can be identified as a common moiety. Here we describe the synthesis, pharmacological, and in silico characterization of a novel arylpiperazines series with excellent 5-HT1A affinity. The final compounds, 4a, 8a, and 8b, were selected according to predictions of in silico pharmacokinetics, docking analysis, and molecular dynamics in conjunction with physical properties, and metabolic stability. The accentuated molecules could serve as a lead compound for developing 5-HT1A drug-like molecules for depression treatment.

AB  - In this study,we conducted a comprehensive investigation of newly synthesized fullerene derivatives developed for potential application in perovskite solar cells (PSCs). We explored three novel dihydrofuran-fused C60 fullerene derivatives (13, 14, and 15) that we respecifically designed to enhance solubility and interaction with the substrate, fluorine-dopedtinoxide (FTO). A comparative analysis was performed, with reference to the widely used phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) and compound 12, from which 13, 14, and 15 are derived, to assess the impact of sugar units on materials properties.The synthesized compounds demonstrated significant solubility in common organic solvents, a critical factor in their potential application in wet-processed PSCs. Our investigation included electrochemical property analysis, thin film deposition, surface characterization, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). EIS measurements unveiled key in sights into charge transfer properties at the electrode/electrolyte interface, making the compounds attractive candidates for electron transport layers (ETLs) in PSCs.

We explored three novel dihydrofuran-fused C60 fullerene derivatives (13, 14, and 15) that we respecifically designed to enhance solubility and interaction with the substrate, fluorine-dopedtinoxide (FTO). A comparative analysis was performed, with reference to the widely used phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) and compound 12, from which 13, 14, and 15 are derived, to assess the impact of sugar units on materials properties.The synthesized compounds demonstrated significant solubility in common organic solvents, a critical factor in their potential application in wet-processed PSCs. Our investigation included electrochemical property analysis, thin film deposition, surface characterization, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). EIS measurements unveiled key in sights into charge transfer properties at the electrode/electrolyte interface, making the compounds attractive candidates for electron transport layers (ETLs) in PSCs.",

AB  - The widespread abuse of traditional antibiotics has led to a global rise in antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which give in return unprecedented health risks. Therefore, there is a large and urgent need for the development of new, smart antibacterial agents able to efficiently kill or inhibit bacterial growth. In this study, we investigated the antibacterial activity of S, N-doped Graphene Quantum Dots (GQDs) as a light-triggered antibacterial agent. Gamma irradiation was employed as a tool to achieve one-step modification of GQDs in the presence of L-cysteine amino acid as a source of heteroatoms. X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and zeta potential measurements provided the necessary data to clarify the structure of modified dots and verify the introduction of both S- and N-atoms in GQDs structure, but also severe changes in the aromatic, sp2 domains. Namely, γ-irradiation caused a bonding of S atoms in 1.14 at.% mainly as thiol groups, and N in 1.81 at.% as amino groups, but sp2 contribution in GQD structure was lowered from 63.00 to 4.86 at.%, as measured in dots irradiated at a dose of 200 kGy. Fluorescence quenching measurements showed that L-cysteine-modified dots are able to bind to human serum albumin. The antibacterial activity of GQDs combined with 1 and 6 h of blue light (470 nm) irradiation was tested against 8 bacterial strains. GQD-cys-25 sample provided the best results, with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) as low as 125 μg/mL against S. aureus, E. faecalis, and E. coli after only 1 h of blue light exposure.

AB  - Varroa destructor is a parasitic mite responsible for the loss of honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies. This study aimed to find a promising marker in honey for the bee colony infestation level using fluorescence spectroscopy and biochemical analyses. We examined whether the parameters of the honey samples’ fluorescence spectra and biochemical parameters, both related to proteins and phenolics, may be connected with the level of honey bee colonies’ infestation. The infestation level was highly positively correlated with the catalase activity in honey (r = 0.936). Additionally, the infestation level was positively correlated with the phenolic spectral component (r = 0.656), which was tentatively related to the phenolics in honey. No correlation was found between the diastase activity in honey and the colonies’ infestation level. The results indicate that the catalase activity in honey and the PFC1 spectral component may be reliable markers for the V. destructor infestation level of the colonies. The obtained data may be related to the honey yield obtained from the apiaries.

AB  - The synthesis and characterization of four dumbbell-shaped fullerene molecules connected by isosorbide and isomannide moieties is presented. Additionally, their electrochemical behavior and their ability to form complexes with [10]cycloparaphenylene ([10]CPP) were investigated. The cyclic voltammetry (CV) results of the fullerene dumbbells demonstrate a high electron affinity, indicating their strong interaction with electron-donating counterparts such as carbon nanorings, which possess complementary charge and shape properties. To study the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of complexation, isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) was employed. NMR titration experiments provided further insights into the binding stoichiometries. Two distinct approaches were utilized to create bridged structures: one based on cyclopropane and the other based on furan. Regardless of the type of linker used, all derivatives formed conventional 2 : 1 complexes denoted as [10]CPP2 ⊃C60derivative . However, the methano-dumbbell molecules exhibited distinct binding behavior, resulting in the formation of mono- and bis-pseudorotaxanes, as well as oligomers (polymers). The formation of linear polymers holds significant potential for applications in solar energy conversion processes.

AB  - In this work, we investigated the morphological and electrochemical properties of gallium/bismuth mixed oxide. The bismuth concentration was varied from 0 to 100%. The correct ratio was determined with inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), while surface characteristics were determined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement. Electrochemical characteristics were studied using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) in the Fe2+/3+ couple. The obtained materials were tested for adrenaline detection. After square wave voltammetry (SWV) optimization, the best electrode showed a wide linear working range from 7 to 100 µM at pH 6 of the Britton–Robinson buffer solution (BRBS) supporting electrolyte. The limit of detection (LOD) for the proposed method was calculated as 1.9 µM, with a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 5.8 µM. The excellent selectivity of the proposed method, with good repeatability and reproducibility, strongly suggests the possible application of the procedure for the determination of adrenaline in artificially prepared real samples. The practical applicability with good recovery values indicates that the morphology of the materials is closely connected with other parameters, which further suggests that the developed approach can offer a low-cost, rapid, selective, and sensitive method for adrenaline monitoring.

AB  - The emergence of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has attracted the attention of the whole scientific community. However, as there are significant concerns regarding the effectiveness of vaccines and drugs against novel SARS-CoV-2 variants, naturally derived broad-spectrum of antivirals seems to be precious adjuvant agents to assist in combat against this disease. Phycocyanobilin (PCB) is an open-chain tetrapyrrole chromophore of phycocyanin (PC), chromoprotein derived from Spirullina, with strong anti-oxidative action. The role of disulfide bonds and thiol-disulfide balance in RBD is considered to play a significant role in the binding of S protein to ACE2 receptor. In RBD, in contrast to C480–C488 disulfide, which is thermodynamically stable, C379–C432 and C391–C525 disulfides are in dynamic equilibrium with their thiol states and, thus these two pairs of disulfides are more sensitive to changes in redox poise. Our study aimed to investigate impact of PCB on disulfide balance of RBD by redox proteomics and to investigate structural changes in the protein exposed to PCB. The effect of PCB on RBD secondary structures was examined by far-UV CD spectroscopy after titration of RBD with increasing concentrations of PCB. The presence of PCB had a pronounced effect on the spectral shape. RBD is dominantly composed of random coils and β-sheets. In the presence of PCB a slight increase of α-helical and random coils content, while the content of β-sheets and β-turns is decreased. Mapping redox-active disulfides and reactive cysteines in recombinant SARS-CoV-2 RBD was done using redox proteomics on both recombinant RBD and PCB-exposed RBD. A mass shift caused by alkylation of free Cys residues was detected on three Cys residues demonstrating disulfides C379–C432 and 432-391 to be semi-stable in both RBD and PCB-exposed RBD. Our results demonstrate that RBD exposed to PCB undergo structural changes but does not change the redox state of its critical semi-stable disulfides.

We purified R-PC from dried Nori flakes with a high purity ratio (A618/A280 ≥ 3.4)in native form (α-helix content 53%). SAXS measurements revealed that R-PC is trimeric ((αβ)3) in solution. Thethermal denaturation of α-helix revealed one transition (Tm at 52 ◦C), while the pH stability study showed R-PC isstable in the pH range 4–8. The thermal treatment of R-PC at 60 ◦C has detrimental and irreversible effects on RPCcolour and antioxidant capacity (22 % of residual capacity). However, immobilisation of R-PC within calciumalginate beads completely preserves R-PC colour and mainly retains its antioxidant ability (78 % of residualcapacity). Results give new insights into the stability of R-PC and preservation of its purple colour and bioactivityby encapsulation in calcium alginate beads.

AB  - Using quantum chemistry calculations and analysis of crystal structures from the
Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), three types of hydrogen bonds, NH/O, O1/HO
(hydrogen bond of a coordinated oxygen atom), and O2/HO (hydrogen bond of a noncoordinated oxygen atom) between different metal ion complexes of amino acids and a
free water molecule were studied. Octahedral cobalt(III) [1] and nickel(II), square
pyramidal copper(II), square planar copper(II), palladium(II), and platinum(II)
complexes were investigated at M06L-GD3/def2-TZVPP level, and interaction energies
were calculated using basis set superposition error (BSSE) corrected values. The NH/O
hydrogen bond of a doubly positive complex has an interaction energy of -16.9 kcal/mol.
For singly positive complexes, NH/O hydrogen bonds are weaker, from -8.3 to -12.1
kcal/mol strong, while for neutral complexes their values are the weakest, from -5.2 to -
7.2 kcal/mol. In neutral complexes with O1/HO, interaction energies are from -2.2 to -
5.1 kcal/mol, while interactions in singly negatively charged complexes are stronger,
from -6.9 to 8.2 kcal/mol. Neutral complexes also have weaker O2/HO hydrogen bonds,
from -3.7 to -5.0 kcal/mol, than the singly negatively charged systems, which have
interaction energy values from -8.0 to -9.0 kcal/mol. Therefore, the results of quantum
chemistry calculations showed that the strongest hydrogen bond is the NH/O, followed
by O1/HO, and lastly, O2/HO interaction. The results also show a strong influence of
the complex charge on the interaction energy. Other factors that influence the interaction
energy to a smaller extent are metal oxidation number, coordination number, and metal
atomic number. In the crystal structures from the CSD search, the d distributions for
copper(II) and cobalt(III) amino acid complexes are in good agreement with the quantum
chemistry results.

For singly positive complexes, NH/O hydrogen bonds are weaker, from -8.3 to -12.1
kcal/mol strong, while for neutral complexes their values are the weakest, from -5.2 to -
7.2 kcal/mol. In neutral complexes with O1/HO, interaction energies are from -2.2 to -
5.1 kcal/mol, while interactions in singly negatively charged complexes are stronger,
from -6.9 to 8.2 kcal/mol. Neutral complexes also have weaker O2/HO hydrogen bonds,
from -3.7 to -5.0 kcal/mol, than the singly negatively charged systems, which have
interaction energy values from -8.0 to -9.0 kcal/mol. Therefore, the results of quantum
chemistry calculations showed that the strongest hydrogen bond is the NH/O, followed
by O1/HO, and lastly, O2/HO interaction. The results also show a strong influence of
the complex charge on the interaction energy. Other factors that influence the interaction
energy to a smaller extent are metal oxidation number, coordination number, and metal
atomic number. In the crystal structures from the CSD search, the d distributions for
copper(II) and cobalt(III) amino acid complexes are in good agreement with the quantum
chemistry results.",

AB  - Interaction energy of phthalimide (ph) with carbon nanotube (CNT) calculated at
SAPT0 level with a mixed basis set (6-31G* for CNT and 6-311G* for ph) is -19.51 kcal/mol. Halosubstitution of the phthalimide generally strengthens its interaction with the CNT and interaction
energies are in the range from -21.02 kcal/mol to -22.62 kcal/mol going from ph-Cl to ph-I.
However, interaction energy for phthalimide substituted with F atom (ph-F) is weaker
(-18.81 kcal/mol) than for non-substituted phthalimide. For ph-Cl, ph-Br, ph-I, the total
interaction energy increases with the higher halogen atomic number, because of the significant
dispersion term and, less pronounced, electrostatic term increase. The smallest dispersion is
calculated for ph-F/CNT (-28.72 kcal/mol), while the remaining systems range
from -31.51 kcal/mol for ph/CNT to -35.78 kcal/mol for ph-I/CNT. Apart from dispersion, the
system with fluorine has a less pronounced electrostatic term than other substituted phthalimides
and does not follow trends observed for other systems.

AB  - The interaction energy of phthalimide and carbon nanotube calculated at SAPT0/6-
31G* level is -17.37 kcal/mol. After the substitution of phthalimide with a hydroxyl group
interaction was stronger (-18.64 kcal/mol) because of the larger dispersion followed by an
increase in the molecular planar surface and an increased electrostatic term due to the additional
electronegative oxygen atom. When a hexafluoroisopropyl group is used as a substituent (ph6F/CNT), the molecule loses planarity and the dispersion term only slightly increases, but not
enough to compensate for the unfavorable shift in the exchange interaction contribution. Thus,
the resulting interaction energy in the ph-6F/CNT system is weaker (16.63 kcal/mol) than in the
original ph/CNT system. Electrostatic contributions are also significant, with the largest value
calculated for ph-OH/CNT (11.32 kcal/mol), because of the additional electronegative oxygen
atom in the hydroxyl group. The other two systems, ph/CNT and ph-6F/CNT have electrostatic
interactions of 10.14 and 10.05 kcal/mol, respectively. Exchange interaction is more repulsive for
ph-OH (+26.60 kcal/mol) and ph-6F (+26.29 kcal/mol) systems than the ph/CNT (+24.86 kcal/mol).

AB  - The hydrogen bonds of free and coordinated amino acids with water molecule were studied by analyzing data in the crystal structures from the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and by quantum chemical calculations. The CSD data indicate bifurcated NH/O hydrogen bonds and O1/HO hydrogen bonds of coordinated oxygen. The O/HO hydrogen bonds of free zwitterions and non-coordinated carbonyl oxygen (O2/HO) in metal complexes form primarily linear, non-bifurcated hydrogen bonds. Calculated M06L-GD3/def2-TZVPP interaction energies for free zwitterions (glycine, cysteine, phenylalanine and, serine) and water molecule are in the range from −5.1 to −9.6 kcal/mol for NH/O and from −6.9 to −7.6 kcal/mol for O/HO interactions. Coordinated amino acids in neutral octahedral cobalt(III) complexes have NH/O interaction energies ca. -7.4 kcal/mol, independent of the amino acid. The singly and doubly charged complexes have stronger NH/O interactions; the strongest has energy of −16.9 kcal/mol. In the case of O1/HO hydrogen bond, the interaction energy decreases upon coordination; interactions are quite weak for neutral complexes (−2.2 to −2.6 kcal/mol). For O2/HO hydrogen bonds, all amino acids except serine show slightly stronger interaction in singly negative complexes (−6.3 to −8.0 kcal/mol), while interactions are weaker for neutral complexes (−2.8 to −4.4 kcal/mol), comparing to zwitterions.

We purified R-PC from dried Nori flakes with a high purity ratio (A618/A280 ≥ 3.4) in native form (α-helix content 53%). SAXS measurements revealed that R-PC is trimeric ((αβ)3) in solution. The thermal denaturation of α-helix revealed one transition (Tm at 52 °C), while the pH stability study showed R-PC is stable in the pH range 4–8. The thermal treatment of R-PC at 60 °C has detrimental and irreversible effects on R-PC colour and antioxidant capacity (22 % of residual capacity). However, immobilisation of R-PC within calcium alginate beads completely preserves R-PC colour and mainly retains its antioxidant ability (78 % of residual capacity). Results give new insights into the stability of R-PC and preservation of its purple colour and bioactivity by encapsulation in calcium alginate beads.

AB  - rom over 10 kg in 1960 to over 20 kg in 2014, the yearly per capita consumption of
marine products has increased significantly during the past 50 years. In many nations,
especially those with poor overall protein intake, seafood protein is a crucial component of
the diet1. However, as defined by the European Community shellfish protein tropomyosin
(TPM) is one of the major allergens and major causes of anaphylaxis 2. Although TPM
originating from vertebrates is not considered as an allergen there is evidence that several
fish tropomyosin can be allergenic3. TPM protein is organized of two parallel alpha-helical
molecules which are wound around each other forming a coiled -coil structure2. Although
the degree of similarity between TPM molecules is high, their allergenic potency is
different. Scientists putting a lot of effort into iden tifying and sequencing tropomyosin
isoforms since this information probably explains the intriguing nature of the TPM
molecule. This is a very challenging task given that the differences in mass and pI values
between TPM isoforms are discrete.
TPM was isolated from mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis), and clams (Venerupis
philippinarum) according to the protocol developed within/and for purposes of the
IMPTOX research project. The obtained “in-house” TPM proteins were resolved using
two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE). Isoelectric focusing was
performed on rehydrated Immobiline strips IPG 3-5.6NL 13 cm in Ettan IPGPhor 3 device.
The second dimension was carried out on 12% PAA gels. Upon protein bands excision to
prevent TPM interchain disulfide cross-linking reduction and alkylation of cysteine was
performed. The samples were digested with proteomics-grade trypsin in a 1:50 enzyme-to-
substrate ratio overnight at 37 °C. The obtained peptides were chromatographically
separated using the EASY-nLC II system and analyzed using Orbitrap Exploris 240 mass
spectrometer.
2D-PAGE resolved two isoforms of mussel TPM and up to eight isoforms of clam TPM.
The determined pI value of the dominant isoform of mussel TPM was 4.7 while the
discrete band arising from the second TPM isoform was slightly shifted toward acidic pI
and smaller molecular mass. The determined pI value of the three most dominant clam
TPM isoforms was 4.8, the fourth isoform was slightly shifted toward a more basic pI
value and lower protein molecular weight. The rest of the isoforms were slightly shifted
toward more acidic pI and at a similar molecular weight as the three dominant isoforms.

two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE). Isoelectric focusing was
performed on rehydrated Immobiline strips IPG 3-5.6NL 13 cm in Ettan IPGPhor 3 device.
The second dimension was carried out on 12% PAA gels. Upon protein bands excision to
prevent TPM interchain disulfide cross-linking reduction and alkylation of cysteine was
performed. The samples were digested with proteomics-grade trypsin in a 1:50 enzyme-to-
substrate ratio overnight at 37 °C. The obtained peptides were chromatographically
separated using the EASY-nLC II system and analyzed using Orbitrap Exploris 240 mass
spectrometer.
2D-PAGE resolved two isoforms of mussel TPM and up to eight isoforms of clam TPM.
The determined pI value of the dominant isoform of mussel TPM was 4.7 while the
discrete band arising from the second TPM isoform was slightly shifted toward acidic pI
and smaller molecular mass. The determined pI value of the three most dominant clam
TPM isoforms was 4.8, the fourth isoform was slightly shifted toward a more basic pI
value and lower protein molecular weight. The rest of the isoforms were slightly shifted
toward more acidic pI and at a similar molecular weight as the three dominant isoforms.",

AB  - Tropomyosin is the major and predominant allergen among shellfish. This study developed
an ultrasensitive immuno-PCR method for the quantification of crustacean tropomyosin in foods.
The method couples sandwich ELISA with the real-time PCR (rtPCR) amplification of marker DNAs. Monoclonal anti-TPM antibody was the capture antibody, polyclonal rabbit anti-shrimp tropomyosin antibody was the detection antibody, while natural shrimp tropomyosin served as the standard. A double-stranded amino-DNA was covalently conjugated to a secondary anti-rabbit antibody and subsequently amplified and quantified via rtPCR. The quantification sensitivity of immuno-PCR was 20-fold higher than analogous ELISA, with LOQ 19.8 pg/mL. The developed immuno-PCR method is highly specific for the detection of crustacean tropomyosin and is highly precise in a broad concentration range. Tropomyosin recovery in the spiked vegetable soup was 87.7–115.6%. Crustacean tropomyosin was also quantified in commercial food products. The reported immuno-PCR assay is the most sensitive method for the quantification of crustacean tropomyosin and is the first immuno-PCR-based assay for the quantification of food allergen and food protein in general. The described method could be easily adapted for the specific and ultrasensitive immuno-PCR-based detection of traces of any food allergen that is currently being quantified with ELISA, which is of critical importance for people with food allergies.

AB  - Tropomyosin has been recognized as one of the most common allergens among shellfish allergens. Sensitive and specific quantification of traces of allergens present in food samples is of critical importance for people with food allergies. This study thus aimed to develop a highly sensitive immuno-PCR method for detecting crustacean tropomyosin in foods. Method couples conventional sandwich ELISA assay with real-time PCR amplification of marker DNA. Monoclonal mouse anti-tropomyosin antibody was used as a capture antibody, while polyclonal rabbit anti-tropomyosin antibody served as a detection antibody in sandwich ELISA. A double-stranded amino-DNA molecule of 77 base pairs was covalently conjugated to a secondary goat anti-rabbit antibody and subsequently amplified and quantified by real-time PCR. Tropomyosin was quantified using highly purified natural shrimp tropomyosin as standard. The sensitivity of immuno-PCR for quantification of tropomyosin was increased by up to 20-fold compared to ELISA, demonstrating accuracy as low as 19.8 pg/mL. Recovery of tropomyosin in vegetable soup as a food matrix was in the 87.7–115.6% range, with relative standard deviations in the 5–24.5% range. Tropomyosin was also quantified in the commercially available food products. Developed immuno-PCR technique thus shows the potential to be a method of choice for specific and ultrasensitive detection of tropomyosin in food samples, with the final aim of reducing risks of accidental food contamination.

AB  - In the last several decades, the trend of seafood consumption has significantly increased not only in the countries with a tradition of seafood consumption, but also in other ones [1]. The increase in the world's population and the awareness of healthy food, the globalization of markets, and the development of aquaculture are some of the factors that have led to this trend. The aquaculture of shellfish like clams, mussels, oysters and scallops has been very developed all around the world and the food products based on them have become part of the daily diet for many consumers. In addition, these food products are considered healthy food because of the high content of proteins and essential fatty acids, but their consumption may carry some risks of food allergy. Tropomyosin from shellfish (TPM) is the major allergen responsible for the development of anaphylaxis in persons with food allergy. The content of TPM in shellfish and its bioavailability from food products can have potential influence on the sensitization of consumers to TPM. It is known that food processing can change the bioavailability of food allergens [2]. The main goal of this study was the investigation of how processing and packaging of shellfish samples can affect the content of TPM in them.
For this study, clam Venerupis philippinarum was chosen as the species with the highest world aquaculture production [1]. After the purchasing of live clams, the animals were separated into 5 groups for the next treatments: fresh live (control group), freshly removed inner content was kept at +4°C for 3 days (three days` shelf-life), frozen in a plastic bag and kept at -20 °C during 7 days, marinated and kept in a glass jar at room temperature during 8 days and freshly boiled. After processing and packaging of samples, the total protein extracts were prepared in 10 mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.4 1M NaCl, 1 mM PMSF and the concentration of total proteins was determined by BCA method. The concentration of TPM in the total protein extracts was determined using a sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) using in-house prepared clams` TPM standard. The content of TPM (μg) in the samples was expressed per mg of extracted soluble proteins, individual animal and grams of soft wet tissue.
The cooked samples have significantly higher TPM content expressed per gram of soft wet tissue compared to all other treatments. Food processing such as freezing, marinating, or extending the shelf-life at 4°C by 3 days has very little effect on the change in TPM content per gram of soft wet tissue compared to the fresh samples. The processing of clams, like cooking or marinating, caused the content of total soluble extracted proteins to be three to four times lower compared to the other three treatments. In these samples the obtained ratio of the total TPM/ total soluble extracted proteins ratio was the highest. This result can be explained by the fact that TPM is thermostable and stays soluble after cooking, while other proteins become insoluble because of denaturation. The lower ratio of TPM/ total soluble extracted proteins was found in marinated samples compared to the cooked samples. The lowest total tropomyosin/ total soluble extracted proteins ratio was found in 3 days’ shelf-life. Treatments like cooking, marinating and keeping the inner content of the shell at +4°C can significantly affect extractability of proteins, particularly affecting the ratio of major allergen TPM in the total protein extracts. Further studies are needed to examine bioaccessibility of TPM in different biologically relevant fluids (gastric/intestinal) and during digestion in relation to the processing conditions.

AB  - In the last 50 years, the annual per capita consumption of seafood products worldwide has more than doubled, from almost 10 kg in 1960 to over 20 kg in 2014. Seafood protein is an essential part of the diet in many countries, particularly where total protein intake is low [1]. However, as defined by the European Community, fish, and shellfish tropomyosins (TPM) are major allergens and major causes of anaphylaxis [2]. The increasing prevalence of food allergies is consistent with the increasing pollution of soil and water with plastic particles. To investigate the potential link between increasing plastic pollution and increasing food allergy prevalence, we aim to develop methods for precise and accurate monitoring of allergens and plastic in real seafood samples.
TPM was isolated from shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei), clams (Venerupis philippinarum), and mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis). The obtained in-house TPM proteins from three different sources were resolved using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE). The concentration of TPM in seashell samples from different geographical origin was determined using a sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) with prior optimization of adequate TPM standard curve using commercial and non-commercial in-house prepared TPM standards.
TPM standards resolved via 2D-PAGE revealed the presence of two isoforms of shrimp and mussels TPM standard, one dominant and one less abundant isoform. Two isoforms from both seafood sources, shrimp and mussels, are slightly different in molecular weight and pI value. As for the TPM standard obtained from clams, the 2D electrophoregram showed possibly eight isoforms with small differences in mass and pI values. Furthermore, the presence of three dominant isoforms can be observed that differ slightly in molecular mass, while other isoforms also differ in pI value. The ELISA results, regarding TPM standard curve optimization, showed that in both the commercial shrimp TPM and in-house shrimp TPM standards, sigmoidal concentration dependence is present in a range of 50 to 0.05 ng/ml, using serial double dilutions. On the other hand, TPM standards isolated from mussels and clams show sigmoidal concentration dependence in the range of 45 to 0.044 μg/ml with using the identical combination of capture and detection antibodies and serial double dilutions. TPM concentrations in clams and mussel samples extrapolated from standard curves of commercial shrimp TPM standard and corresponding in-house TPM standards are presented in Table 1.
Differences in TPM concentration of the same sample using different TPM standards differ from 40 to 600 times, which strongly indicates that the right choice of TPM standard is a critical step for accurate and precise determination of TPM concentration in seafood samples.

AB  - Human ingestion of microplastics (MPs) is common and inevitable due to the widespread contamination of food items, but implications on the gastric digestion of food proteins are still unknown. In this study, the interactions between pepsin and polystyrene (PS) MPs were evaluated by investigating enzyme activity and conformation in a simulated human gastric environment in the presence or absence of PS MPs. The impact on food digestion was also assessed by monitoring the kinetics of protein hydrolysis through static in vitro gastric digestion of cow's milk contaminated with PS. The binding of pepsin to PS showed that the surface chemistry of MPs dictates binding affinity. The key contributor to pepsin adsorption seems to be π−π interactions between the aromatic residues and the PS phenyl rings. During quick exposure (10 min) of pepsin to increasing concentrations (222, 2219, 22188 particles/mL) of 10 μm PS (PS10) and 100 μm PS (PS100), total enzymatic activities were not affected remarkably. However, upon prolonged exposure at 1 and 2 h, preferential binding of pepsin to the small, low zeta-potential PS caused structural changes in the protein which led to a significant reduction of its activity. Digestion of cow's milk mixed with PS10 resulted in transient accumulation of larger peptides (10–35 kDa) and reduced bioavailability of short peptides (2–9 kDa) in the gastric phase. This, however, was only observed at extremely high PS10 concentration (0.3 mg/mL or 5.46E+05 particles/mL). The digestion of milk peptides, bound preferentially over pepsin within the hard corona on the PS10 surface, was delayed up to 15 min in comparison to bulk protein digestion. Intact caseins, otherwise rapidly digested, remained bound to PS10 in the hard corona for up to 15 min. This work presents valuable insights regarding the interaction of MPs, food proteins, and pepsin, and their dynamics during gastric digestion.
