Calocybe indica was cultivated on wheat straw enriched with various concentrations of sodium selenite (Na2 SeO3 ), (2.5-40 μg/ml). The content of selenium (Se) in fruit bodies increased linearly by increasing the amount of Na2 SeO3 , although the biomass yield inhibited above 5 μg/ml. The fruit bodies accumulated inorganic Se into organic forms by integrating the Se into proteins (56%-68%), polysaccharides (22%-29%), and nucleic acids (1.4%-2.7%). Maximum protein content (25.31 g/100 g) was observed in fruit bodies harvested from the substrate enriched with 10 μg/ml Se...

We have found that protocatechuic acid methyl ester (PCAME) attenuates fluoride (F- ) toxicity in lung epithelial cells (A549). However, these finding has to be confirmed with in vivo studies. Further, the effect of PCAME on F- induced pulmonary fibrosis and inflammation remains limited. Hence, the present study is aimed to determine the protective effect PCAME against F- induced pulmonary toxicity in female albino Wistar rats. The animals were treated with sodium fluoride (NaF, 300 ppm in drinking water ad libitum) alone or in combination with PCAME (25 or 50 mg/kg bw/day by oral intubation) for 60 days and analyzed for changes in lung histology, oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis and fibrosis markers...

Lactoferrin (lactotransferrin; Lf) is an iron-binding glycoprotein and one of the most important bioactivators in milk and other external secretions. It has numerous biological roles, including the regulation of iron absorption and modulation of immune responses, and has anti-microbial, anti-viral, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory activities. Lf regulates the quantity of iron absorbed in the intestine via its role in iron transport and can also chelate iron, directly or indirectly. Notably, it has been used as an adjuvant therapy for some intestinal diseases...
