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  - 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  - The osmotic dehydration (OD) of celery root in sugar beet molasses was studied at three temperatures (20, 35, and 50 °C) and three immersion periods (1, 3, and 5 h) in order to examine the changes in antioxidant potential and phenolic profile of celery root throughout the process. The antioxidant capacity (AOC) of dehydrated samples was evaluated by spectrophotometric and polarographic assays, the total phenolic content by the Folin-Ciocalteu method, and the individual phenolic compounds by HPLC-DAD. As a result of OD in molasses, the AOC and phenols content in samples increased proportionally to the augmentation of temperature and the immersion time. Vanillic acid, syringic acid, and catechin were detected in dehydrated samples as a result of transfer from molasses. Compared to fresh celery root, the content of identified phenols in osmodehydrated samples was improved from 1.5 to 6.2 times. Strong correlations between applied assays were obtained, except for the DPPH. Based on the correlation analysis chlorogenic acid, gallic acid, chrysin, catechin, and kaempferol showed the greatest contribution to the overall AOC of osmodehydrated celery root. Molasses, an agro-industrial waste from sugar production, could be valorized as a valuable osmotic solution.

AB  - The peach stones and kernels are easily available biowaste which could be useful for the extraction of nutritionally important compounds such as fatty acids. Except in industry, characterization of stones and kernels could be useful in pomology to describe different cultivars, and for selecting new parents in a breeding program. A total of 25 samples of stones and kernels from various peach cultivars that differed in origin and ripening time, but growing in the same climatic conditions, were characterized by fatty acids composition and physical properties. This work confirmed that unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic fatty acids) were the most represented in peach kernel oil and their content depended of peach genotype. Additionally, the fatty acids in combination with length, weight, and moisture of peach kernels could be used as a parameter of authenticity assessment. This research may contribute for the peach cultivar discrimination and recommendation of cultivars/genotypes with high kernel quality which could be used for the extractions of oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids and further use in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. Besides, selected cultivars could be used in breeding programs, for creating new genotypes for oil production.

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  - 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  - Earth-abundant, cheap and non-toxic zinc-based coordination compounds are drawing research attention as promising candidates for various applications, such as photoluminescent materials and anticancer agents. In this paper we report six zinc complexes (1–3-NO3 and 1–3-Cl) with pyridyl-based thiazolyl–hydrazone ligands, which differ in the nature of substituents at the ligands' periphery, anion type, and geometry around the metal ion. The complexes were characterized by single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction analysis, as well as IR and NMR spectroscopy. The symmetrical complexes 2-Cl and 3-Cl, where zinc atoms are located at a two-fold axis, do not exhibit photophysical properties, unlike their asymmetrical analogs 2-NO3 and 3-NO3 with the same complex cation. Asymmetrical pentacoordinated 1-Cl and hexacoordinated 1-NO3 complexes exhibit photophysical properties. An admixture of allowed intra-ligand (1IL) and chloro (X)-to-ligand charge-transfer (1XLCT) electronic transitions is responsible for the fluorescence of the 1-Cl complex. The origin of the emission of the 1-NO3 complex is ascribed to an admixture of 3IL and ligand-to-ligand charge-transfer (3LLCT) forbidden electronic transitions, while for 3-NO3 most electronic excitations are of LLCT character. The thermal stability of the complexes is in accord with the strength of respective intermolecular interactions. The antiproliferative activity of the complexes was in the nanomolar range on some of the investigated cancer cell lines. Contrary to the increase of antiproliferative activity of the complexes in comparison to the free ligands in cancer cell lines, an acute toxicity determined in the brine shrimp assay follows the opposite trend. The overall results suggest that Zn(II) thiazoyl–hydrazone complexes have considerable potential as multifunctional materials.

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.

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  - The biological activity of Cd compounds has been investigated scarce since Cd has been recognized as a human carcinogen. However, the toxicity of cadmium is comparable to the toxicity of noble metals such as Pt and Pd. The paradigm of metal toxicity has been challenged suggesting that metal toxicity is not a constant property, yet it depends on many factors like the presence of appropriate ligands. Studies on anticancer activity of cadmium complexes showed that the complexation of various ligands resulted in complexes that showed better activities than approved drugs. In the present study, cadmium complexes with biologically potent thiazolyl/selenazoyl-hydrazone ligands have been prepared, and tested for their activity against different types of tumor cell models. The complexation of ligands with Cd(II) resulted in a synergistic effect. The antiproliferative activity study revealed that all complexes are more active compared to 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin. The mechanism of tumor cell growth inhibition reveal that selenium-based compounds induce cell death in T-47D (gland carcinoma) cells through apoptosis via caspase-3/7 activation. Additionally, their pro-apoptotic effect was stronger compared to etoposide and cisplatin. Nuclease activity, detected by gel electrophoresis, may be the possible mechanism of anticancer action of investigated complexes.

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  - Correct elucidation of physiological and pathological processes mediated by extracellular vesicles (EV) is highly dependent on the reliability of the method used for their purification. Currently available chemical/physical protocols for sample fractionation are time-consuming, often scarcely reproducible and their yields are low. Immuno-capture based approaches could represent an effective purification alternative to obtain homogeneous EV samples. An easy-to-operate chromatography system was set-up for the purification of intact EVs based on a single domain (VHH) antibodies-copolymer matrix suitable for biological samples as different as conditioned cell culture medium and human plasma. Methacrylate-based copolymer is a porous solid support, the chemical versatility of which enables its efficient functionalization with VHHs. The combined analyses of morphological features and biomarker (CD9, CD63 and CD81) presence indicated that the recovered EVs were exosomes. The lipoprotein markers APO-A1 and APO-B were both negative in tested samples. This is the first report demonstrating the successful application of spherical porous methacrylate-based copolymer coupled with VHHs for the exosome isolation from biological fluids. This inexpensive immunoaffinity method has the potential to be applied for the isolation of EVs belonging to different morphological and physiological classes.

AB  - Quality control, nutritional value and the monitoring of hazardous residues in honey bee- products have become
major topics for both producers and consumers. Due to its potential role in human health, bee-products rich in
bioactive compounds are becoming increasingly popular. This review aims to provide an overview of thin-layer
chromatography methods used in quality control, authenticity testing and chemical profiling of bee-products in
order to help scientists engaged in the field of bee-products chemistry to utilize the advantages of this technique
in the detection and elimination of fraudulent practices in bee-product manufacturing. Recently, hyphenation of
thin-layer chromatography, image analysis and chemometrics support bee-products analysis by simultaneous determination of analytes with different detection principles, identification of individual
bioactive compounds as well as structure elucidation of compounds. Highlighted opportunities of thin-layer
chromatography could encourage further investigations that would lead to improvements in the detection and
elimination of marketing fraudulent practices.

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  - 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  - Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), is a naturally hazardous environmental contaminant, contained mainly in various cereal seeds. The maize (Zea mays L.) seeds containing various levels of the AFB1 was investigated using optical and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies. The changes of lignin content and organic free radicals as indicators of the seeds' defense response to the AFB1-stressor were estimated, in the seeds' inner and outer fractions. The lignin content was determined using the Acetyl Bromide method. No correlation was found between the lignin content and the AFB1 concentration in the inner fraction (R of 0.030, p = 0.943), while a significant positive linear correlation (R of 0.9923, p= 0.00005) between the lignin content and the AFB1 concentration in the outer fraction was obtained. Employing electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, the different response of the fractions was observed, regarding the content of free radicals with increasing AFB1 concentrations. In addition, front-face fluorescence spectroscopy in combination with the deconvolution showed a positive linear correlation between the ratio of the green and blue spectral emission components (C4/C2) area and the AFB1 concentration in the outer fraction. Thus lignin content and the (C4/C2) area ratio may be reliable indicators for the screening of lignin changes related to the level of AFB1 in the seeds.

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  - 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.

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.
