This article is the first description of a spontaneous hepatic rupture in a young bodybuilder with a history of clenbuterol and ephedrine alkaloid use. The patient presented with a sudden mid-epigastric pain and vomiting. Hemoglobin levels decreased a few hours later and a computed tomography scan was performed which revealed a rupture of the right liver capsule and hemoperitoneum. Two attempts at transarterial embolization did not control the bleeding and a right hemihepatectomy was performed. The pathological report identified a hepatic adenoma, a capsular tear and diffuse peliosis hepatis...

OBJECTIVES: Clenbuterol is a brain penetrant β2-adrenoceptor agonist with anti-inflammatory and putative neuroprotective properties. In the present investigation, the effect of clenbuterol was assessed in a rat model of acute brain injury induced by intra-striatal administration of the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1β. METHODS: Clenbuterol (0.5 mg/kg; i.p.) was administered one hour prior to stereotactically delivered IL-1β (100 ng) into the striatum. Four hours postinjection, rats were anesthetized, blood samples were collected for circulating cytokine and chemokine analysis, and the ipsilateral striatum and liver tissue were harvested for mRNA expression analysis of target genes...

Large-scale expression of β2-adrenergic receptor (β2-AR) in functional form is necessary for establishment of receptor assays for detecting illegally abused β-adrenergic agonists (β-agonists). Cell-based heterologous expression systems have manycritical difficulties in synthesizing this membrane protein, such as low protein yields and aberrant folding. To overcome these challenges, the main objective of the present work was to synthesize large amounts of functional β2-AR in a cell-free system based on Escherichia coli extracts...

A simple, efficient and sensitive molecularly imprinted electrochemiluminescence sensor (MIECLS) based on reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) was developed for determination of clenbuterol (CLB). In this study, rGO generated by electrodeposition of graphene oxide not only acted as carrier for immobilizing UCNPs, but also had a significant impact in boosting electrochemiluminescence (ECL) response of UCNPs thanks to its high conductivity, superior electron transport rate and large specific surface area...

A fully automated spectrophotometric method based on flow-batch analysis has been developed for the determination of clenbuterol including an on-line solid phase extraction using a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) as the sorbent. The molecularly imprinted solid phase extraction (MISPE) procedure allowed analyte extraction from complex matrices at low concentration levels and with high selectivity towards the analyte. The MISPE procedure was performed using a commercial MIP cartridge that was introduced into a guard column holder and integrated in the analyzer system...

β2-Adrenoceptor (β2-AR) agonists promote muscle growth. The aim of this study was to elucidate some effects of the selective β2-adrenoceptor agonist clenbuterol (CLB) on myoblast proliferation. We found that CLB induces cell cycle arrest in C2C12 myoblasts. This effect is partly due to the enhanced stability of p27, rather than the increased gene transcription via cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB). Specifically, CLB treatment enhanced the accumulation of p27 in the nucleus while depleting it from the cytosol via a mechanism that requires β2-AR...

A robust LC-MS/MS method was developed to quantify a large number of phase I and phase II steroids in urine. The decision limit is for most compounds lower than 1ngml(-1) with a measurement uncertainty smaller than 30%. The method is fully validated and was applied to assess the influence of administered synthetic steroids and beta-agonists on the steroidogenesis. From three animal experiments, clenbuterol, diethylstilbestrol and stanozolol, the steroid profiles in urine of bovine animals were compared before and after treatment...

Rapid quantitative determination of bulk molecular concentration in solid samples without sample pretreatment is demonstrated using the internal extractive electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (iEESI-MS) analysis of six β-agonists, including salbutamol (Sal), clenbuterol (Cle), ractopamine (Rac), terbutaline (Ter), tulobuterol (Tul), brombuterol (Bro), in pork tissue samples. Single sample analysis only required 1 min. The linear range of detection was about 0.01-1000 μg/kg (R(2) > 0.9994). The limit-of-detection (LOD) varied from 0...

Mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with numerous acute and chronic degenerative diseases. The beta-2 adrenergic receptor (β2AR) agonist formoterol induces mitochondrial biogenesis (MB), but other β2AR agonists, such as clenbuterol, do not. We sought to identify the MB signaling pathway of formoterol and the differences in signaling between these two ligands that result in the differential induction of MB. While formoterol and clenbuterol increased cAMP, only formoterol increased the phosphorylation of Akt and its downstream target eNOS...

PGC-1α has been suggested to regulate exercise training-induced metabolic adaptations and autophagy in skeletal muscle. The factors regulating PGC-1α are however not fully resolved. The aim was to investigate the impact of β-adrenergic signaling in PGC-1α mediated metabolic adaptations in skeletal muscle with exercise training. Muscle was obtained from muscle specific PGC-1α knockout (MKO) mice and LOX/LOX 1) 3h after a single exercise bout with or without prior injection of propranolol or 3h after a single injection of clenbuterol and 2) after 5 weeks of wheel running exercise training with or without propranolol treatment or after 5 weeks of clenbuterol treatment...

Several banned substances are illegally used by athletes in racemic mixtures for performance enhancement. These include clenbuterol, methyl hexaneamine, methamphetamines, and amphetamines. Clenbuterol is present in a large number of doping samples from Olympic and non-Olympic athletes that have adverse analytical findings (AAFs). In some cases, the presence of these substances could be the result of consumption of meat contaminated with clenbuterol. In other cases, the origin is not clear. In this study, 27 products with racemic clenbuterol were evaluated using a new analytical methodology for the resolution of R-(-) and S-(+)-enantiomers of clenbuterol by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) using a chiral column in 15 min with good separation...

We developed a microcantilever array biosensor instrument based on optical readout from a microcantilever array in fluid environment. The microcantilever signals were read out sequentially by laser beams emitted from eight optical fibers. The optical fibers were coupled to lasers, while the other ends of the fibers were embedded in eight V-grooves with 250 μm pitch microfabricated from a Si wafer. Aspherical lens was used to keep the distance between lasers. A programmable logic controller was used to make the system work stably...

A rapid and effective nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE)-ultraviolet (UV) method was developed for the enantiomeric separation of seven β-agonists. Diacetone-d-mannitol-boric acid complex was used as a new chiral selector. It was in situ synthesized by the reaction of diacetone-d-mannitol and boric acid in methanol medium containing triethylamine. The effects of diacetone-d-mannitol, boric acid, and triethylamine concentrations on the enantioseparation were carefully investigated. Under the optimized conditions, baseline enantioseparation could be obtained for six of the tested β-agonists within 12min...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal motility disorder has been demonstrated to be regulated by acupuncture treatment. The mechanisms underlying the effects of acupuncture stimulation of abdominal and lower limb acupoints on gastrointestinal motility have been thoroughly studied; however, the physiology underlying the effects of acupuncture on the forelimbs to mediate gastrointestinal motility requires further exploration. The aim of this study was to determine whether electroacupuncture (EA) at LI11 promotes jejunal motility, whether the parasympathetic pathway participates in this effect, and if so, which somatic afferent nerve fibres are involved...

Clenbuterol (CLB), a member of β-agonist family, has now been a serious threat to human health due to its illegal usage in the animal feed. In this paper, we designed a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) system consisting of carbon dots (C-dots) and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) for recovered fluorescence detecting of CLB. In the presence of CLB, CLB molecules can interact with AuNPs via Au-N bonds, preventing the interaction of C-dots and AuNPs, which induced the recover of the fluorescent intensity...

A highly sensitive method for the determinations of acebutolol, clenbuterol, nadolol, oxprenolol, propranolol, terbutaline and timolol β-blockers and β2-agonists in plasma and urine was developed. The method was optimized using electrospray ionization liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS-MS) and clean screen solid phase extraction cartridges. Matrix effect was reduced by removing co-extractives from the SPE cartridges using methanol prior to drugs' elution. Using blood and serum matrices for calibration and applying the internal standard method has also contributed to the reduction of matrix effect...

We investigated the use of a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor using an antibody (Ab) labeled with Au-nanoparticle (Ab-AuNP conjugate). As clenbuterol is a small molecule, an indirect competitive inhibition immunoassay was used. The SPR immunoassay using Ab-AuNP conjugate had an extremely low limit of the detection (LOD) with a magnitude of 0.05 ppt (0.05pgmL(-1)), which was 40 times lower than that of unlabeled Ab. To identify the key factor in determining the LOD of the indirect competitive inhibition immunoassay, affinity constants of the surface immunoreaction (K1) and of the premixed solution (αK2) were evaluated...
