F Can, S Hovardaoglu
Based on public opinion surveys, although 75% of people state that they would donate the organs of one of their relatives, in reality, the rate of the people who donate the organs of their relatives is 24%. To decrease the organ shortage, the key point is to understand the difference between intention and real behavior. For this reason, in this study, analyses of variables related to the potential organ donor families' decisions of approval or refusal for organ harvesting were analyzed. The interviews were conducted with 101 families who made a decision about organ donation between 2010 and 2014...

Tanya M Brown, Robie W Macdonald, Derek C G Muir, Robert J Letcher
Arctic contaminant research in the marine environment has focused on organohalogen compounds and mercury mainly because they are bioaccumulative, persistent and toxic. This review summarizes and discusses the patterns and trends of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and mercury in ringed seals (Pusa hispida) and polar bears (Ursus maritimus) in the Eastern Canadian Arctic relative to the rest of the Canadian Arctic. The review provides explanations for these trends and looks at the implications of climate-related changes on contaminants in these marine mammals in a region that has been reviewed little...

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is the common element between the Mediterranean countries. It can be considered a nutraceutical and functional food, thanks to its bioactive compounds. It can act and modulate different processes linked to ageing and age-related diseases related to a common chronic low grade inflammation. Depending on the cultivar, the growth conditions, the period of harvesting, the productive process and time of product storage, EVOO could contain different amount of vegetal components. Of course, the same is for table olives...

Light-harvesting-like (LIL) proteins are a group of proteins that share a consensus amino acid sequence with light-harvesting Chl-binding (LHC) proteins. We hypothesized that they might be involved in photosynthesis-related processes. In order to gain a better understanding of a potential role in photosynthesis-related processes, we examined the most recently identified LIL protein, LIL8/PSB33. Recently, it was suggested that this protein is an auxiliary PSII core protein which is involved in organization of the PSII supercomplex...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is a condition characterized by high mortality rates and often accompanied by multiple-organ dysfunction. During sepsis, respiratory system may be affected and possibly result in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Toll-like receptors (TLRs), as a first line defense against invading pathogens, seem to be highly expressed in septic states. Therefore, expression of TLRs in the lungs of a sepsis animal model could indicate the involvement of the respiratory system and appear as a severity index of the clinical course...

INTRODUCTION: Tubularized urethroplasty is commonly performed in clinical practice using genital skin flaps, bladder mucosa, and buccal mucosa. However, the long-term effects are not satisfying, and donor site morbidities remain a problem. Besides, those grafts are unavailable with malignant conditions of the urinary tract, a history of lichen sclerosis, or oral disease. OBJECTIVE: An autologous granulation tissue tube of any required length and diameter can be produced by implanting foreign objects subcutaneously (Summary Fig...

Nature utilizes optimally organized pigments in light-harvesting complexes. To mimic the natural photosynthetic proteins, effective control over inter-pigment interactions is necessary to attain the desired photophysical properties. Previously, we developed porphyrin-peptoid conjugates (PPCamide) and displayed two porphyrins at defined positions on an α-helical peptoid using a flexible n-butyl linker. Herein, we synthesized new porphyrin-peptoid conjugates (PPCC-C), where porphyrins are conjugated through a rigid C-C linkage to the helical peptoid via the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction...
