OBJECTIVE: In a recent blinded randomized study, we found that in HIV individuals a short supplementation with prebiotics (scGOS/lcFOS/glutamine) ameliorates dysbiosis of total gut bacteria, particularly among viremic untreated patients. Our study goal was to determine the fraction of the microbiota that becomes active during the intervention and that could provide additional functional information. DESIGN: A total of six healthy individuals, and 16 HIV-infected patients comprising viremic untreated patients (n = 5) and antiretroviral therapy-treated (ART) patients that are further divided into immunological responders (n = 7) and immunological nonresponders (n = 4) completed the 6-week course of prebiotic treatment, including six patients receiving a placebo...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate if high-dosed folate supplements might diminish the efficacy of malaria intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp) with sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) in a cohort of pregnant women in Benin, where malaria is holoendemic. METHODS: We followed 318 women during the entire pregnancy and analyzed hematological and P.falciparum indicators in the context of an intermittent preventive treatment trial in Benin. During the follow-up women received two-dose IPTp (1500/75 mg of SP per dose) at the maternity clinic, and 600 mg of albendazole, 200 mg ferrous sulfate and 5 mg folic acid per day for home treatment...

Understanding and controlling magnetic anisotropy at the level of a single metal ion is vital if the miniaturisation of data storage is to continue to evolve into transformative technologies. Magnetic anisotropy is essential for a molecule-based magnetic memory as it pins the magnetic moment of a metal ion along the easy axis. Devices will require deposition of magnetic molecules on surfaces, where changes in molecular structure can significantly alter magnetic properties. Furthermore, if we are to use coordination complexes with high magnetic anisotropy as building blocks for larger systems we need to know how magnetic anisotropy is affected by structural distortions...

The use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) result in an inevitable contact with aquatic environments. Here we study the behavior of AgNPs and the developmental toxicity in zebrafish embryos exposed to these nanoparticles (0-10 mg/L) with and without the presence of HA (20 mg/L), using zebrafish facility water (ZFW) and zebrafish growing media (ZGM). The presence of cations and HA gave rise to a decrease in Ag ion release and ζ-potential, an increase in the hydrodynamic diameter and oxidation of the AgNP surface...

In the human pathogen Mycoplasma genitalium, homologous recombination is under the control of σ20, an alternative sigma factor that boosts the generation of genetic and antigenic diversity in the population. Under laboratory growth conditions, σ20 activation is rare and the factors governing its intermittent activity are unknown. Two σ20-regulated genes, rrlA and rrlB, showed to be important for recombination of homologous DNA sequences in this bacterium. Herein, we demonstrate that rrlA and rrlB code for two small proteins that participate in a feed-forward loop essential for σ20 function...

An accurate, fast, economic and simple method to determine carotenoids, tocopherols, retinol and cholesterol in lyophilised samples of ovine milk, muscle and liver and raw samples of fat, which are difficult to lyophilise, is sought. Those analytes have been studied in animal tissues to trace forage feeding and unhealthy contents. The sample treatment consisted of mild overnight saponification, liquid-liquid extraction, evaporation with vacuum evaporator and redissolution. The quantification of the different analytes was performed by the use of ultra-high performance liquid chromatography with diode-array detector for carotenoids, retinol and cholesterol and fluorescence detector for tocopherols...

BACKGROUND: The progression from acute to chronic antibody-mediated rejection in kidney transplant recipients is usually not prevented by current therapeutic options. Here, we investigated whether the use of tofacinitib, a Janus kinase 3 inhibitor, was capable of preventing the progression of allograft dysfunction in a Fisher-to-Lewis rat model of kidney transplantation. METHODS: Rats were treated from the third week after transplantation in order to allow the development of rejection...

Interfacial supramolecular architectures displaying mesoscale organized components are of fundamental importance for developing materials with novel or optimized properties. Nevertheless, engineering the multilayer assembly of different building blocks onto a surface and exerting control over the internal mesostructure of the resulting film is still a challenging task in materials science. In the present work we demonstrate that the integration of surfactants (as mesogenic agents) into layer-by-layer (LbL) assembled polyelectrolyte multilayers offers a straightforward approach to control the internal film organization at the mesoscale level...

Novel aluminium MOF-type materials structured by 1D subdomains, such as organic-inorganic nanoribbons, were synthesized by modifying the conditions of solvothermal synthesis and the nature of the solvents in the presence of aryl monocarboxylate linkers with long alkyl chains, which acted as growth-modulating agents. Specifically, three different families of materials were prepared with various morphological characteristics: (i) isoreticular MIL-53(Al)-type materials, (ii) mesoscopic metalorganic structures and (iii) lamellar aluminium MOFs...

Although freelisting and semi-structured interviews are widespread methods in ethnobotany, few studies quantitatively examine how these methods may bias results. Using a comprehensive ethnobotanical inventory of palm species, uses and names in the Chácobo tribe of Bolivia, we show that interviews elicit more items than freelists, but the effect is sensitive to sample size, item type and data categorization. This implies that even subtle methodological choices may greatly affect reported results.

An alternative method for quantification of the total reducing capacity (TRC) of processed ready-to-drink fruit juices (orange, grape, peach, mango, cashew, strawberry, apple and guava) is suggested. The spectrophotometric procedure is based on the reduction of Cu(II) to Cu(I) by antioxidants (present in the samples) in aqueous buffered solution (pH 7.0), containing 4,4'-dicarboxy-2,2'-biquinoline acid (H2 BCA), yielding the [Formula: see text] complexes. The absorbance values at 558 nm (A558 nm ) of the [Formula: see text] complexes obtained with juice samples were compared with A558 nm values of the same complexes obtained with a standard ascorbic acid solution and used to quantify and express the reducing capacity of each sample...
