Bio-Sensing of Cadmium(II) Ions Using Staphylococcus aureus
Cadmium, as a hazardous pollutant commonly present in the living environment, represents an important risk to human health due to its undesirable effects (oxidative stress, changes in activities of many enzymes, interactions ...
Behaviour of zinc complexes and zinc sulphide nanoparticles revealed by using screen printed electrodes and spectrometry
(MDPI AQ, 2013-10-25)
In this study, we focused on microfluidic electrochemical analysis of zinc complexes (Zn(phen)(his)Cl-2, Zn(his)Cl-2) and ZnS quantum dots (QDs) using printed electrodes. This method was chosen due to the simple (easy to ...
Anticancerogenic effect of spices due to phenolic and flavonoid compounds – in vitro evaluation on prostate cells
This study shows the effects of spices, and their phenolic and flavonoid compounds, on prostate cell lines (PNT1A, 22RV1 and PC3). The results of an MTT assay on extracts from eight spices revealed the strongest inhibitory ...
Study of Linkage between Glutathione Pathway and the Antibiotic Resistance of Escherichia coli from Patients Swab
In this work, we focused on the differences between bacterial cultures of E. coli obtained from swabs of infectious wounds of patients compared to laboratory E. coli. In addition, blocking of the protein responsible for ...
Flow Injection Analysis with Electrochemical Detection for Rapid Identification of Platinum-Based Cytostatics and Platinum Chlorides in Water
Platinum-based cytostatics, such as cisplatin, carboplatin or oxaliplatin are widely used agents in the treatment of various types of tumors. Large amounts of these drugs are excreted through the urine of patients into ...
