Obesity is a multifactorial disorder associated with increased body adiposity, chronic oxidative stress which contributes to impaired fertility in males. Diet restriction and anti-oxidant supplementations are known to protect obese subjects from oxidative stress and improves fertility. However, the role of oxidative stress and the age of intervention in restoring male fertility are poorly understood. This study was aimed to assess the effect of diet restriction on fertility with respect to the age of intervention, body composition and oxidative stress using WNIN/Ob obese mutant rat strain...

To account for the explanation of an eventual sensing and catalytic behavior of rhombohedral In2O3 (rh-In2O3) and the dependence of the metastability of the latter on gas atmospheres, in situ electrochemical impedance spectroscopic (EIS), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopic (FT-IR), in situ X-ray diffraction and in situ thermogravimetric analyses in inert (helium) and reactive gases (hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide) have been conducted to link the gas-dependent electrical conductivity features and the surface chemical properties to its metastability towards cubic In2O3...

A supramolecular nanovehicle, denoted as ICG-DOX/Gd-LDH, was synthesized by the co-intercalation of indocyanine green (ICG) and doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX) into a gallery of Gd(3+)-doped-layered double hydroxide (Gd-LDH) such that to achieve a chemo-photothermal synergistic therapeutic agent. The unique structure of Gd-LDH can not only stabilize the photothermal agent ICG to enhance the photothermal efficiency, but also hamper the recombination between electron and holes, leading to the generation of more reactive oxygen species (ROS) under irradiation in the NIR range...

Perfluorocarbon (PFC) emulsions are capable of absorbing large quantities of oxygen. They are widely used as blood alternates for quick oxygenation of tissues. However, they are unsuitable for applications where sustained oxygen supply is desired over an extended period of time. Here, we have designed a new PFC oxygen delivery system that combines perfluorodecalin with graphene oxide (GO), where GO acts both as an emulsifier and a stabilizing agent. The resulting emulsions (PFC@GO) release oxygen at least one order of magnitude slower than emulsions prepared with other common surfactants...

We report the effects of oxygen pressure during growth (P<sub>O2</sub>) on the electronic and magnetic properties of PrAlO<sub>3</sub> films grown on TiO<sub>2</sub>-terminated SrTiO<sub>3</sub> substrates. Resistivity measurements show an increase in the sheet resistance as P<sub>O2</sub> is increased. The saturation of the sheet resistance down to 0.3 K is consistent with Kondo theory for P<sub>O2</sub> ≥ 10<sup>-5</sup> torr...

When plants encounter soil water logging or flooding, roots are the first organs to be confronted with reduced gas diffusion resulting in limited oxygen supply. Since roots do not generate photosynthetic oxygen they are rapidly faced with oxygen shortage rendering roots particularly prone to damage. While metabolic adaptations to low oxygen conditions, that ensure basic energy supply, have been well characterized, adaptation of root growth and development have received less attention. In this study we show that hypoxic conditions cause the primary root to grow sidewise in a low oxygen environment possibly to escape soil patches with reduced oxygen availability...

Highly echogenic and ultrasound-responsive microbubbles such as nitrogen, and perfluorocarbons have been exploited as ultrasound-mediated drug carriers. Here, we propose an innovative method for drug delivery using microbubbles generated from a chemical reaction. In a novel drug delivery system, luminol encapsulated in folate-conjugated bovine serum albumin nanoparticles (Fol-BSAN) can generate nitrogen gas (N2) by chemical reaction when it reacts with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), one of reactive oxygen species (ROS)...

In this series of laboratory experiments, the feasibility of using fixed bed biofilm carriers (FBBC) manufactured from existing reclaimed waste tires (RWTs) for wastewater treatment was evaluated. To assess polyamide yarn waste tires as a media, the fixed bed sequence batch reactor (FBSBR) was evaluated under different organic loading rate (OLRs). An experimental model was used to study the kinetics of substrate consumption in biofilm. Removal efficiency of soluble chemical oxygen demand (SCOD) ranged by 76-98% for the FBSBR compared to 71-96% in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR)...

An ionophore-doped sensing membrane phosphate (PO4) microsensor based on bis(dibromophenylstannyl)methane (Bis microsensor) is described. The Bis microsensor showed a Nernstian response. The response of the Bis microsensor was log-linear down to a monohydrogen phosphate ion (HPO4(2-)) concentration of 0.5 μM (corresponding to 1.0 μM of orthophosphate at pH 7.2), whereas the detection limit of PO4-microsensors based on trialkyl/aryltin chloride was 50 μM of HPO4(2-). The Bis microsensor showed excellent selectivity for HPO4(2-) against nitrite, nitrate, chloride, bicarbonate and sulfate, as compared with PO4 microsensors based on trialkyl/aryltin chloride...

Hematite (α-Fe2O3) is a promising candidate as photoanode materials for solar-to-fuel conversion due to its favorable band gap for visible light absorption, its stability in an aqueous environment and its relatively low cost in comparison to other prospective materials. However, the small polaron transport nature in α-Fe2O3 results in low carrier mobility and conductivity, significantly lowering its efficiency from the theoretical limit. Experimentally, it has been found that the incorporation of oxygen vacancies and other dopants, such as Sn, into the material appreciably enhances its photo-to- current efficiency...

The worldwide blood shortage has generated demands for alternatives to transfusible human blood. One such important option is based on recombinant hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (rHBOCs). Most efforts have been focused on various E. coli based production systems. One of the key challenges in these systems is to devise an efficient and economical protein production strategy involving selection of suitable host cell and Hb variant, growth conditions and media engineering. Hb also influences the heterologous host cell metabolism and therefore the identification of modified protein-protein interactions is critical for optimizing Hb production...

Historically, hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) were being developed as "blood substitutes," despite their transient circulatory half-life (~ 24 h) vs. transfused red blood cells (RBCs). More recently, HBOC commercial development focused on "oxygen therapeutic" indications to provide a temporary oxygenation bridge until medical or surgical interventions (including RBC transfusion, if required) can be initiated. This included the early trauma trials with HemAssist (®) (BAXTER), Hemopure (®) (BIOPURE) and PolyHeme (®) (NORTHFIELD) for resuscitating hypotensive shock...

Marine plastic litter is a global concern. Carrier bags manufactured from non-biodegradable polymers constitute a large component of this litter. Because of their adverse impact on marine life, non-biodegradable bags have recently been replaced by biodegradable ones. However, growing evidence shows that these latter are not readily degradable in marine sediments and can alter benthic assemblages. The potential impact of biodegradable bags on seagrasses inhabiting sandy bottoms, which are the most widespread and productive ecosystems of the coastal zones, has been ignored...

Solid solutions of ceria and praseodymia are highly relevant for electrochemical applications as the incorporation of praseodymium into the ceria lattice shifts the range of mixed ionic electronic conductivity to higher oxygen partial pressures. To better understand the influence of praseodymium substitution on the transport processes and oxygen storage capacity in ceria, single crystals of ceria substituted with 14 mol% praseodymium have been investigated, obtaining the bulk properties without the influence of grain boundaries...

The whitening and opacifying properties of titanium dioxide (TiO2) are commonly exploited when it is used as a food additive (E171). However, the safety of this additive can be questioned as TiO2 nanoparticles (TiO2-NPs) have been classed at potentially toxic. This study aimed to shed some light on the mechanisms behind the potential toxicity of E171 on epithelial intestinal cells, using two in vitro models: (i) a monoculture of differentiated Caco-2 cells and (ii) a coculture of Caco-2 with HT29-MTX mucus-secreting cells...

Guanidinium-functionalized molecules are commonly studied for their use as pharmaceutically active compounds and drugs carriers. Herein, four cyclometalated iridium(III) complexes containing guanidinium ligands have been synthesized and characterized as potential anticancer agents. These complexes exhibit moderate antitumor activity in HeLa, MCF-7, HepG2, CNE-2, and A549 human tumor cells. Interestingly, all complexes showed higher cytotoxicity than cisplatin against a cisplatin-resistant cell line A549R, and less cytotoxicity on the nontumorigenic LO2 cells...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate the association between high-intensity staffing by a dedicated cardiac intensivist and clinical outcomes in CS. METHODS: We enrolled 2923 consecutive patients admitted to a cardiac care unit (CCU) from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2015. In January 2013, the CCU changed from a low-intensity to high-intensity staffing unit managed by a dedicated cardiac intensivist. Patients were eligible if they required inotropes or vasopressors to maintain a systolic blood pressure>90mmHg, and had serum lactate≥2...

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has widely infected more than 90% of human populations. Currently, there is no efficient way to remove the virus because the EBV carriers are usually in a latent stage that allows them to escape the immune system and common antiviral drugs. In the effort to develop an efficient strategy for the removal of the EBV virus, we have shown that betulinic acid (BA) slightly suppresses EBV replication through SOD2 suppression with subsequent reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and DNA damage in EBV-transformed LCL (lymphoblastoid cell line) cells...

In recent years, indocyanine green (ICG) encapsulated in different kinds of nano-carriers have been developed to overcome its short lifetime in vivo and non-selectivity in cancer cells. However, these nanoparticles are still easily recognized and captured by the reticuloendothelial system (RES) and the low singlet oxygen quantum (0.08) of ICG inevitably leads to a limited efficacy of phototherapy. To overcome these limitations, a novel oxygen self-enriched biomimetic red blood cell (RBC) was developed by cloaking albumin nanoparticles which contained ICG and perfluorocarbon (PFC) with RBC membranes...

Hemoglobin vesicles (HbVs) are oxygen carriers consisting of Hb molecules and liposome in which human hemoglobin (Hb) molecules are encapsulated. Investigations of HbV biocompatibility have shown that HbVs have no significant effect on either the quality or quantity of blood components such as RBC, WBC, platelets, complements, or coagulation factors, reflecting its excellent biocompatibility. However, their effects on the immune system remain to be evaluated. HbVs might affect the function of macrophages because they accumulate in the reticuloendothelial system...
