AB  - Timely and accurate evaluation of clinical parameters associated with endothelial dysfunctionis critical in diagnosing and treating atherosclerosis, which represents a severe health problem, accountingfor at least 30% of deaths globally. A critical early event in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is the oxidativemodification of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Oxidized LDL (OxLDL) represents numerouschanges in lipid and apolipoprotein B (apo B) fractions of LDLs generated by lipid peroxidation. Anotherindicator of perturbed vascular homeostasis is homocysteine (Hcy), an amino acid containing sulfhydrylgroup,an intermediate methionine and cysteine biosynthesis product. The total level of Hcy in plasmacorrelates better than cholesterol with the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, nitric oxide (NO)plays an essential role in regulating vascular physiological homeostasis due to its involvement in intravascularfree radical and oxidant reactions. Reduced NO decreases oxidative stress in the vascular wall,which reduces the rate of LDL oxidation and the expression of redox-sensitive genes involved in atherogenesis.Endothelial dysfunction is typically associated with increased levels of OxLDL, decreased nitricoxide (NO), and hyperhomocysteinemia. Thus, OxLDL, Hcy, and NO are representative parameters ofoxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction. Considering the important role of oxLDL, Hcy and NO inoxidative stress, atherogenesis and accompanying endothelial dysfunction, the challenge of the presentwork was to systematically present available methods for reliable measurement of these parameters andassess their potential for the use in the clinical setting. Here we present a comprehensive overview ofanalytical methods for measuring OxLDL, HCy, and NO in biological samples and discuss their advantagesand potential problems regarding their application in clinical settings.

AB  - Background Myocardial infarction (MI) leads to ischemia and afterward to left ventricular (LV) remodeling. Matrix metalloproteinase−1 (MMP1) and −3 (MMP3) belong to the family of endopeptidases and together they can dissolve most of the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP1 and MMP3 variants have been investigated solely in association with ischemic heart disease and LV dysfunction, but not in haplotype. The aims of this study were to investigate the association of haplotypes inferred from MMP1 rs1799750 (−1607 1G/2G; NC_000011.9:g.102670497del) and MMP3 rs35068180 (−1612 5A/6A; NC_000011.9:g.102715952dup) with MI and their effect on the change in echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function in patients within 6 months after MI. Methods The study included 325 patients with the first MI and 283 healthy controls. Gene variants were detected by PCR-RFLP method. Parameters of LV structure and function were assessed by conventional 2D echocardiography, 3–5 days and 6 months after the first MI, on a subgroup of 160 patients. Haplotype analysis was performed with Thesias software. Results Haplotypes 2G-5A and 1G-6A were significantly and independently associated with MI compared with the reference haplotype 2G-6A (adjusted, p = 0.009 and p = 0.026, respectively). After Bonferroni correction for multiple testing, MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes lost their association with the change in LV long diameter and stroke volume within 6 months after MI. Conclusion MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes are strongly associated with MI. Further studies are needed to validate this result and to examine their association with echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function after MI.

AB  - Objective Cholesteatoma is a challenging chronic pathology of the middle ear for which pharmacologic therapies have not been developed yet. Cholesteatoma occurrence depends on the interplay between genetic and environmental factors while master regulators orchestrating disease progression are still unknown. Therefore, in this review, we will discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) as a new class of regulatory molecules. Methods We have comprehensively reviewed all articles investigating ncRNAs, specifically micro RNAs (miRNAs) and long ncRNAs (lncRNA/circRNA) in cholesteatoma tissue. Results Candidate miRNA approaches indicated that miR-21 and let-7a are the major miRNAs involved in cholesteatoma growth, migration, proliferation, bone destruction, and apoptosis. Regulatory potential for the same biological processes was also observed for miR-203a. The NF-kB/miR-802/PTEN regulatory network was in relation to observed miR-21 activity in cholesteatoma as well. High throughput approaches revealed additional ncRNAs implicated in cholesteatoma pathology. Competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) analysis highlighted lncRNA/circRNA that could be “endogenous sponge” for miR-21 and let-7a based on the hypothesis that RNA transcripts can communicate with and regulate each other by using shared miRNA response elements. Conclusion In this review, we summarize the discoveries and role of ncRNA in major pathways in cholesteatoma and highlight the potential of miRNA-based therapeutics in the treatment of cholesteatoma.

AB  - Objectives This study aimed to experimentally validate dysregulated expression of miRNA candidates selected through updated meta-analysis of most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer and to explore their diagnostic and prognostic potential. Materials and methods Five miRNAs (miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p, miR-30a-5p and miR-139-5p) from updated meta-signature were selected for validation by qRT-PCR method in 35 oral cancer clinical specimens and adjacent non-cancerous tissue. Results Updated meta-analysis has identified 13 most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer. Seven miRNAs were consistently up-regulated (miR-21-5p, miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-31-5p, miR-424-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-21-3p), while five were down-regulated (miR-139-5p, miR-30a-3p, miR-375-3p, miR-376c-3p and miR-30a-5p). Increased expression of miR-31-3p and miR-135b-5p, and decreased expression of miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p were confirmed in oral cancer compared to adjacent non-cancerous tissue. A three miRNAs combination (miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p) gave the most promising diagnostic potential for discriminating oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue (AUC: 0.780 [95% CI: 0.673–0.886], p < 0.0005, sensitivity 94.3%, specificity 51.4%). High expression of miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p was associated with poor survival (p = 0.003, p = 0.048, p = 0.016 respectively). Conclusion miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p panel was confirmed as a potential diagnostic biomarker when distinguishing oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue. miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p might serve as potential biomarkers of poor survival of oral cancer patients.

AB  - The influence of chronopotentiometry response on the morphology and structure of galvanostatically synthesized tin dendriticparticles has been investigated. Sn dendrites were electrodeposited at the current density 1.5 times larger than the limiting diffusioncurrent density (− 3 mA cm−2) with various amounts of the electricity (200 and 400 mC), and the obtained morphologyand structure of the particles were characterized by SEM and XRD techniques, respectively. The strong effect of the amountof spent electricity on the morphology and structure of the particles was observed, and it is explained by morphological andstructural analysis of Sn particles produced potentiostatically at various cathodic potentials selected to be in line with therecorded chronopotentiometry response. The strong correlation among chronopotentiometry response, morphology, andstructure of the Sn dendrites was established. The spear-like and the dendrites with prismatic branches possessed the strong(200),(400) preferred orientation, and they were obtained with a chronopotentiometry response of about − 1200 mV vs. Ag/AgCl. The chronopotentiometry responses in the − 1210 ÷ − 1740 mV vs. Ag/AgCl range caused a formation of the fern-likedendrites with the strong (220),(440) preferred orientation. Based on the obtained results, it follows that the chronopotentiometryanalysis represents good diagnostic criteria for obtaining Sn powder particles of desired morphology and structure.

AB  - Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common type of endocrine cancer, with an increasing incidence worldwide. The treatment of PTC is currently the subject of clinical controversy, making it critically important to identify molecular markers that would help improve the risk stratification of PTC patients and optimize the therapeutic approach. The Von Hippel–Lindau (VHL) tumor suppressor gene has been implicated in tumorigenesis of various types of carcinoma and linked with their aggressive biological behavior. The role of VHL in the origin and development of PTC have only recently begun to be revealed. In this narrative review, we attempt to summarize the existing knowledge that implicates VHL in PTC pathogenesis and to outline its potential significance as a candidate molecular biomarker for the grouping of PTC patients into high and low risk groups. © 2022 Todorović and Stanojević.

abstract = "Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common type of endocrine cancer, with an increasing incidence worldwide. The treatment of PTC is currently the subject of clinical controversy, making it critically important to identify molecular markers that would help improve the risk stratification of PTC patients and optimize the therapeutic approach. The Von Hippel–Lindau (VHL) tumor suppressor gene has been implicated in tumorigenesis of various types of carcinoma and linked with their aggressive biological behavior. The role of VHL in the origin and development of PTC have only recently begun to be revealed. In this narrative review, we attempt to summarize the existing knowledge that implicates VHL in PTC pathogenesis and to outline its potential significance as a candidate molecular biomarker for the grouping of PTC patients into high and low risk groups. © 2022 Todorović and Stanojević.",

AB  - The presented research focused on the metallization of polyester, cotton, and polyamide 6.6 fabrics using the silver conductive complex to allow electric conductivity through the fabric's surface and enhance the fabric's mechanical properties. The method used for the metallization of studied fabrics does not require the use of expensive toxic chemicals or electricity, making the process more economically acceptable. The signal attenuation was measured in frequency ranges of 1–4 and 5–12 GHz. After five cycles of metallization, the polyester fabric has higher EMI effectiveness, in a lower range was 45.44 and 57.25 dB. X-ray powder diffractometry (XRD) and infrared spectroscopy with Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry (FT-IR) characterize the modified tissues. Scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy-dispersion spectroscopy (SEM-EDS) was used to determine layers' morphology and elemental composition. Also, the water and air permeability of modified textiles was determined.

AB  - This work presents the perspective of applying the laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (LDI MS) for characterization the anode film of the Ag60Cu26Zn14, Ag58.5Cu31.5Pd10, and Ag63Cu27In10 alloys (at high concentrations of chloride ions in solutions). The reference LDI mass spectra of anode films of pure Ag and Cu have been used for the identification of product corrosion. Knowing the clusters detected in the reference spectra lead to the facilitating identification of the LDI mass spectrum of the sample and reduces the analysis time. The LDI MS analysis of these alloys revealed that the predominant corrosion product are AgCl (from AgnCln+1−/+, n = 1–3), and CuCl (from “superhalogen” CumCln− clusters, m = 1–2, n = 2–6); it also revealed Cu2(OH)3Cl (from Cu2(OH)(H2O)2+) and Cu2O (from Cu(H2O)+, Cu2O doped with chlorine). These results are in accordance with the X-ray diffraction and Raman analysis. The LDI MS spectra of alloys contain the additional peaks formed due to the mutual influences of different metals in the alloys (AgCuCl3− (AgCl-CuCl2−), AgCu2Cl4− (AgCl-CuCl-CuCl2−), and Ag2CuCl4− (AgCl-AgCl-CuCl−), which is consistent with the identified corrosion products. It should be noted that the LDI MS suggest the presence of CuCl2, which can be interpreted as the corrosion products retained in the porous films of alloys, and not detected by the other methods due to a small amount. The future theoretical and experimental studies of metal clusters, significant for metallurgy, can contribute that the LDI MS is becoming a powerful analytical tool for characterization the metal surfaces.

AB  - Although sample preparation, as an unavoidable step of the analytical process should be simple, it is very often identified as a bottleneck. Simplicity of sample preparation based on cost-effective and non-hazardous materials is mandatory for any sustainable and environmental friendly approach. Aqueous biphasic systems (ABS), based on functionalized ionic liquids (FILs) are acceptable alternatives to classical extraction procedures, due to the replacement of organic solvent with diluted aqueous-soluble ionic liquids. In this work, two water soluble FILs based on 2-mercaptobenzothiazolate anion, [mbt]: 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium [mbt] ([bmim][mbt]) and 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium [mbt] ([emim][mbt]), were designed and synthesized in order to selectively extract Cd(II) and Pb(II) from the river sediment. It was found that [mbt]– anion acts as the ligand and forms complexes with Cd(II) and Pb(II) which are responsible for their efficient extraction, while cation is more responsible for the formation of ABS. Partition coefficients of 408 and 180 for Cd(II) and Pb(II), respectively, were obtained using ABS based on [bmim][mbt]. Direct extraction of Cd(II) and Pb(II) from the river sediment has been investigated and obtained optimal conditions are: 60 min direct contact of the aqueous solution of [bmim][mbt] and the sediment sample at 90 °C, followed by formation of ABS upon addition of potassium citrate. Using AGRE and AGREEprep tools greenness of the proposed method for direct extraction of Cd(II) and Pb(II) from the sediment are calculated. Obtained values of 0.69 and 0.71 for Cd(II) and Pb(II) extraction, respectively, showed a high level of the greenness of the proposed method.

AB  - The actual paper analyses the performance of different energy crop biomasses, Miscanthus x giganteus Greef et Deu (EC-1) and Arundo donax L. (EC-2) stems, during slow pyrolysis process monitored by simultaneous TG-DTG-MS techniques, through chemical exergy analysis. In addition to considering the physical and chemical characteristics of given feedstocks for their efficient thermo-chemical conversion into pyrolytic gas, in this study, a theoretical simulation for their implementation use in the gasification process was also performed. The performed thermodynamic study with detailed exergy analysis showed that the large contribution of exergy in syngas components such as CO and H2 originates primarily from cellulose pyrolysis of EC-1, while large exergy contribution in syngas component as CH4 originates from lignin pyrolysis of EC-2. It was founded that the exergy efficiency of syngas for EC-1 equals 19.04%, which is lower than the exergy efficiency of syngas for EC-2 (20.46%), as a result of higher ash content in EC-1. Also, it was reported that higher carbon (C) and hydrogen (H) contents present in the EC-2 sample generate higher gaseous energy and exergy values, i.e. the increment of exergy efficiency of syngas, by both approaches (pyrolysis and gasification exergy analysis), but results in a lower biomass chemical exergy (18.28 MJ kg−1). The methodology applied to the gasification process was shown a higher exergy efficiency for EC-2 (∼36 – 42%) than for EC-1 (∼33 – 39%), dependant on the equivalence ratio (ER).

AB  - The present paper investigates the effects of thermal annealing on the structural and magnetic properties of Co thin films. The films were prepared by using electron-beam evaporation method onto Si (100) wafers and annealed in vacuum at 200 °C, 300 °C and 400 °C. A combination of X-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry were used to characterize structural properties and the composition of the films, while magnetic behavior was studied by magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements. It was found that as deposited Co layer show predominantly uniaxial magnetic anisotropy, while after annealing at 200 °C and 300 °C a strong influence of fourfold contribution is observed, which is assigned to the thermally induced HCP→FCC phase transition. With further increase in annealing temperature of 400 °C the isotropic contribution becomes the main component of magnetization. Besides, a strong variation in coercive field with annealing temperature was observed, where the coercivity seems to depend closely on the crystallite size. The highest value of HC equals ∼70 Oe and was found for the temperature of 400 °C, where also mixing at the interface has started and formation of CoSi was observed.

AB  - We present the temperature distribution predictions for photothermal systems by considering an extension of dual-phase lag. It is an extension of the GCE-II and GCE-III models with a fractional dual-phase lag from kinetic relaxation time. Solving the one-dimensional problem considering a planar and periodic excitation, we obtained the temperature distribution and the Photoacoustic (PA) signal for the transmission setup. We also analyze the effects of fractional order derivatives and kinetic relaxation time. It is shown that the derived models have promising results that could be used to explain the experimentally observed behavior of PA signals measured on thin films with an inhomogeneous internal structure.

AB  - Purpose: Track structure Monte Carlo (MC) codes have achieved successful outcomes in the quantitative investigation of radiation-induced initial DNA damage. The aim of the present study is to extend a Geant4-DNA radiobiological application by incorporating a feature allowing for the prediction of DNA rejoining kinetics and corresponding cell surviving fraction along time after irradiation, for a Chinese hamster V79 cell line, which is one of the most popular and widely investigated cell lines in radiobiology. Methods: We implemented the Two-Lesion Kinetics (TLK) model, originally proposed by Stewart, which allows for simulations to calculate residual DNA damage and surviving fraction along time via the number of initial DNA damage and its complexity as inputs. Results: By optimizing the model parameters of the TLK model in accordance to the experimental data on V79, we were able to predict both DNA rejoining kinetics at low linear energy transfers (LET) and cell surviving fraction. Conclusion: This is the first study to demonstrate the implementation of both the cell surviving fraction and the DNA rejoining kinetics with the estimated initial DNA damage, in a realistic cell geometrical model simulated by full track structure MC simulations at DNA level and for various LET. These simulation and model make the link between mechanistic physical/chemical damage processes and these two specific biological endpoints.

AB  - Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic pollutant that is widely spread in waterbody with effluents as a result of its extensive use in the plastics industry. It posses to the class of compounds that are endocrine disruptors and has a great negative impact on living organisms. Therefore, the progress in development of green technology for BPA removal from the aquatic media is crucial for environmental protection. This paper presents BPA removal by electrochemical oxidation on SnO2-MWCNT (tin dioxide-multi walled carbon nanotube) nanocomposite anode. The nanocomposite was structural and morphological characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. Electrochemical properties of the SnO2-MWCNT anode were investigated using cyclic voltammetry, linear sweep voltammetry and electrical impedance spectroscopy. The electrochemical behavior of anodes toward BPA in sodium sulfate solutions has shown that BPA is oxidized by indirectly mechanism via hydroxyl radicals (verified by quenching tests). Electrolysis of BPA has been done in galvanostatic regime at current densities 2.5, 5.0, 10.0, 15.0 and 20.0 mA cm−2 in 0.1 M sodium sulfate supported electrolyte pH 4.0. Complete degradation of BPA was accomplished after 5 h of electrolysis at a current density of 20 mA cm−2. The proposed electrochemical technology using a low-cost SnO2-MWCNT electrode is promising for wastewater BPA removal.

AB  - Selective cytotoxicity of ZnO nanoparticles among different cell types and cancer and non-cancerous cells has been demonstrated earlier. In the view of anticancer potential of ZnO nanoparticles and their presence in numerous industrial products, it is of great importance to carefully evaluate their effects and mechanisms of action in both cancerous and healthy cells. In this paper, the effects of ZnO nanoparticles on cancerous HeLa and non-cancerous MRC-5 cells are investigated by studying the changes in the vibrational properties of the cells using Raman spectroscopy. Both types of cells were incubated with ZnO nanoparticles of average size 40 nm in the doses from the range 10–40 µg/ml for the period of 48 h, after which Raman spectra were collected. Raman modes’ intensity ratios I1659/I1444, I2855/I2933 and I1337/I1305 were determined as spectral markers of the cytotoxic effect of ZnO in both cell types. Non-negative principal component analysis was used instead of standard one for analysis and detection of spectral features characteristic for nanoparticle-treated cells. The first several non-negative loading vectors obtained in this analysis coincided remarkably well with the Raman spectra of particular biomolecules, showing increase of lipid and decrease of nucleic acids and protein content. Our study pointed out that Raman spectral markers of lipid unsaturation, especially I1270/I1300, are relevant for tracing the cytotoxic effect of ZnO nanoparticles on both cancerous and non-cancerous cells. The change of these spectral markers is correlated to the dose of applied nanoparticles and to the degree of cellular damage. Furthermore, great similarity of spectral features of increasing lipids to spectral features of phosphatidylserine, one of the main apoptotic markers, was recognized in treated cells. Finally, the results strongly indicated that the degree of lipid saturation, presented in the cells, plays an important role in the interaction of cells with nanoparticles.

AB  - Adolescence is a key phase of development for perturbations in fear extinction, with inability to adequately manage fear a potent factor for developing psychiatric disorders in adulthood. However, while behavioral correlates of adolescent fear regulation are established to a degree, molecular mediators of extinction learning in adolescence remain largely unknown. In this study, we observed fear acquisition and fear extinction (across 4 and 7 days) of adolescent and adult mice of both sexes and investigated how hippocampal levels of different plasticity markers relate to extinction learning. While fear was acquired evenly in males and females of both ages, fear extinction was found to be impaired in adolescent males. We also observed lower levels of GluA1, GLUN2A and GLUN2B subunits in male adolescents following fear acquisition, with an increase in their expression, as well as the activity of Erk-mTOR pathway over subsequent extinction sessions, which was paralleled with improved extinction learning. On the other hand, we detected no changes in plasticity-related proteins after fear acquisition in females, with alterations in GluA1, GluA4 and GLUN2B levels across fear extinction sessions. Additionally, we did not discern any pattern regarding the Erk-mTOR activity in female mice associated with their extinction performance. Overall, our research identifies sex-specific synaptic properties in the hippocampus that underlie developmentally regulated differences in fear extinction learning. We also point out hippocampal NMDA-Erk-mTOR signaling as the driving force behind successful fear extinction in male adolescents, highlighting this pathway as a potential therapeutic target for fear-related disorders in the adolescent population. © 2022 The Authors

abstract = "Adolescence is a key phase of development for perturbations in fear extinction, with inability to adequately manage fear a potent factor for developing psychiatric disorders in adulthood. However, while behavioral correlates of adolescent fear regulation are established to a degree, molecular mediators of extinction learning in adolescence remain largely unknown. In this study, we observed fear acquisition and fear extinction (across 4 and 7 days) of adolescent and adult mice of both sexes and investigated how hippocampal levels of different plasticity markers relate to extinction learning. While fear was acquired evenly in males and females of both ages, fear extinction was found to be impaired in adolescent males. We also observed lower levels of GluA1, GLUN2A and GLUN2B subunits in male adolescents following fear acquisition, with an increase in their expression, as well as the activity of Erk-mTOR pathway over subsequent extinction sessions, which was paralleled with improved extinction learning.

AB  - Gamma irradiation provides an alternative pathway to conventional gold nanoparticle synthesis because it is simple, fast, and economical. Here, we employed gamma irradiation at low doses (1–20 kGy) to obtain gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) anchored onto graphene oxide (GO) sheets. GO was selected as a suitable platform for the nucleation and growth of Au NPs because of its large surface area and good dispersibility in water due to the presence of polar oxygen-containing functional groups in its structure. Gamma irradiation at all the applied doses led to the reduction of chloroauric acid and the formation of evenly distributed Au NPs at the GO surface, simultaneously causing the reduction of GO and partial restoration of the graphene structure. As-prepared Au NPs have predominately spheric shapes and the smallest nanoparticles were reported for the dose of 1 kGy. The increase in the irradiation dose caused either the growth of larger particles (5 and 10 kGy) or the broad distribution of particles’ sizes (20 kGy). All samples showed a temperature increase upon exposure to 800 nm laser and photothermal efficiency was the highest for the sample prepared at 20 kGy. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - D-galactose (d-gal) is broadly used in animal aging studies as its chronic administration mimics learning and memory impairments related to aging in humans. However, within the few studies that utilize chronic oral d-gal intake, none of them is focused on alteration in synaptic structure and function. We examined the effects of 6-weeks oral d-gal intake (200 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg, dissolved in tap water) on age-related changes, with emphasis on the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and hippocampus (HIP) of adult male Wistar rats. Memory assessment was followed by histological examination of the PFC and HIP (Nissl staining and Iba-1 immunostaining), while in crude synaptosomal fractions the state of oxidative stress and the expression of proteins involved in glutamatergic signaling was determined. Although applied dosages compromised memory, alterations such as impaired sensory-motor function and aberrant morphology were not detected. In the PFC, analysis of microglia revealed reduction of branching pattern following d-gal intake, in parallel with increased oxidative damage of proteins, lipids and disturbed pro-oxidant antioxidant balance. These changes in the PFC were further accompanied with decreased levels of vesicular glutamate transporter 1, syntaxin-1 and NMDA receptor 2B subunit in both treated groups. Simultaneously, the increased hippocampal oxidative damage of lipids was detected. Results indicate successful provocation of age-related changes following oral d-gal intake, and suggest greater sensitivity of the PFC to d-gal treatment than HIP.

AB  - Pure and samarium (Sm3+) - or zirconium (Zr4+)-doped TiO2 nanofibers were synthesized by electrospinning method followed by calcination at 500 °C for 1 h. As-spun fibers were smooth, straight and continuous, whilst EDS analysis confirmed the fiber composition and incorporation of dopants in the fibers. Doping with Sm3+ and Zr4+ greatly inhibited the phase transformation of anatase to rutile, by surrounding of Sm3+ ions through formation of Ti-O-Sm bonds and by replacement of Ti4+ ions with larger Zr4+ ions. This was confirmed by HRTEM and SAED analysis. The size of nanofibers was determined to be 133 nm, 175 nm and 155 nm for pure, (0.5%)Sm3+:TiO2 and (1%)Zr4+:TiO2, respectively. After calcination, TiO2 crystal lattice with interplanar spacing of 0.353 nm of (101) crystal plane was not significantly disturbed by Sm doping whilst crystal lattice spacing of 0.357 nm of (101) planes of anatase phase in case TiO2:1.0%Zr4+, significantly differs from the value of pure TiO2 (0.352 nm), thus implying that Zr was doped into substitutional sites of the TiO2 lattice. The indirect band gaps were calculated to be in the range 3.07–3.24 eV. TiO2:0.5%Sm3+ and TiO2:1.0%Zr4+ exhibited higher specific surface area, of 47.1 and 59.4 m2/g, respectively, than pure TiO2 fibers (19.7 m2/g). Effects of Sm3+ and Zr4+ dopant content on the photodegradation efficiency of methylene blue (MB) were studied. TiO2:0.5%Sm3+ and TiO2:1.0%Zr4+ nanofibers have shown the highest photocatalytic activity of 97% and 98% with constant rates 0.01768 min−1 and 0.01939 min−1, respectively, within180 min irradiation under visible light.

AB  - Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of the major depressive disorder. Namely, neuroinflammation can induce the production of neuroactive metabolites that interfere with N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDAR)-mediated glutamatergic neurotransmission and contribute to depressive-like behaviour. On the other hand, mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) activity with synaptogenic effects is the main mediator of antidepressant effects of several potent NMDAR antagonists. In this study, we investigated the specific role of GluN2A subunits of NMDAR on the activity of mTOR signaling and behaviour in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induces model of depression. The results showed that mice lacking GluN2A subunit did not display depressive-like behavior after the immune challenge, opposite to LPS-treated wild-type mice. Specifically, in GluN2A knockout mice, we estimated the activity of the mTOR pathway in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex (PFC) by measuring synaptic levels of upstream regulators (p-Akt, p-ERK, and p-GSK3β) and downstream effectors (p-mTOR, and p-p70S6K) of mTOR activity. In addition, we assessed the changes in the levels of two important synaptic markers, GluA1 and PSD-95. Contrary to downregulated mTOR signaling and decreased synaptic markers in LPS-treated wild-type animals, the resilience of GluN2A KO mice to depressive-like behaviour was paralleled with sustained mTOR signaling activity synaptic stability in hippocampus and PFC. Finally, we disclosed that resistance of GluN2A knockouts to LPS-induced depressive-like behavior was ERK-dependent. These findings demonstrate that GluN2A-ERK-mTOR signaling is a vulnerability factor of inflammation-related depressive behaviour, making this signaling pathway the promising target for developing novel antidepressants.

abstract = "Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of the major depressive disorder. Namely, neuroinflammation can induce the production of neuroactive metabolites that interfere with N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDAR)-mediated glutamatergic neurotransmission and contribute to depressive-like behaviour. On the other hand, mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) activity with synaptogenic effects is the main mediator of antidepressant effects of several potent NMDAR antagonists. In this study, we investigated the specific role of GluN2A subunits of NMDAR on the activity of mTOR signaling and behaviour in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induces model of depression. The results showed that mice lacking GluN2A subunit did not display depressive-like behavior after the immune challenge, opposite to LPS-treated wild-type mice. Specifically, in GluN2A knockout mice, we estimated the activity of the mTOR pathway in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex (PFC) by measuring synaptic levels of upstream regulators (p-Akt, p-ERK, and p-GSK3β) and downstream effectors (p-mTOR, and p-p70S6K) of mTOR activity. In addition, we assessed the changes in the levels of two important synaptic markers, GluA1 and PSD-95. Contrary to downregulated mTOR signaling and decreased synaptic markers in LPS-treated wild-type animals, the resilience of GluN2A KO mice to depressive-like behaviour was paralleled with sustained mTOR signaling activity synaptic stability in hippocampus and PFC. Finally, we disclosed that resistance of GluN2A knockouts to LPS-induced depressive-like behavior was ERK-dependent.

AB  - Electromagnetic interference (EMI) has become a widespread modern environmental pollutant. There is an essential need for practical and applicable materials for its attenuation. Therefore, the presented research has focused on metallization of carbon fabric using the silver conductive complex solution to enhance the surface conductivity and mechanical properties of the fabric. With this amplification and improving the mentioned characteristics, lightweight and flexible modified carbon fibers can be applied in many environments. The modification has been performed in three steps: the silver conductive complex synthesis, carbon fabric immersion into a silver complex solution, treating with temperature for silver deposition by annealing. The method used for the metallization of carbon fabrics surface does not require expensive and toxic chemicals or electricity, making the process more ecologically and economically acceptable. One of the advantages of using the method for surface modification is the possibility of usage for other materials, not only for textiles and foils. The examination of the surface structure, electrical, EMI shielding characteristics, and mechanical properties of carbon fabrics modified by silver deposition contributes to the determination of multifunctional properties of materials. Also, the dependence on the improvement of multispectral electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness (EMI SE) characteristics and mechanical properties of materials on the number of cycles has been determined. The most effective material was carbon fabric modified by five cycles, and average attenuation at an L and S bands was 49.67 dB, and a part of C and full X band was 51.07 dB, caused by better coverage by silver particles, increased density and porosity of deposited layer. Increasing the number of silver deposition cycles improves the physical properties of the modified carbon fabrics, where after five cycles the highest maximum force has been measured (2.26 kN). The material's morphology was studied by scanning electron microscopy with Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy. The crystallographic phases of sintered particles were determined by X-ray diffraction. The crystallographic phases of sintered particles were determined by X-ray diffraction.

AB  - Researchers are faced with everyday demands for safer and more efficient therapy for many diseases, especially serious one such as various types of cancer. Numerous anticancer drugs are poorly-water soluble and therefore their encapsulation and controlled release remain quite challenge. In present study, we deepened our research of hydrophilic carrier based on poly(methacrylic acid) and casein (PMAC) by investigating its potential for encapsulation and controlled release of novel poorly water-soluble dihydropyrimidion-azo-pyridon compound (DHPMP). DHPMP is a dye that has been proven to show cytotoxic activity against chronic myeloid leukemia K562 cells. By encapsulating DHPMP into the carrier and delivering it into the intestines, DHPMP absorption could be the fastest and the number of therapeutic doses and side effects can be reduced. Carriers based on PMAC and DHPMP (PMAC-DHPMP) were synthetized and characterized by FTIR, SEM and single compression tests. The swelling behavior of PMAC-DHPMP carriers and cumulative DHPMP release were investigated depending on the amount of crosslinker and encapsulated DHPMP in two media which were simulating pH environments in human stomach and intestines. The prolonged and controlled release of DHPMP was achieved. In vitro cytotoxic activity of PMAC-DHPMP carriers against K562 cells and the cell cycle analysis showed great potential of the carriers for application in leukemia treatment.

AB  - We report an organic solvent–assisted (OSA) co-precipitation strategy for the production of Mn4+-activated K2TiF6 phosphor. The phosphor particle size was controlled through the selection of organic solvents with an alcohol functional group and different carbon chain lengths used in the synthesis. The synergistic effect of the organic solvent and hydrofluoric acid results in large smoothed hexagonal-shaped crystal sheets of particles that become larger as the carbon chain length of the organic solvent increases. The photoluminescence (PL) properties of K2TiF6:Mn powders strongly depend on the size and thickness of the particles. The addition of n-butanol during the synthesis increases the emission intensity of K2TiF6:Mn by 208%. The PL quantum efficiency of phosphors prepared using the n-butanol-assisted strategy is much higher (98.2%) than that of conventionally prepared phosphors (89.9%). Our findings demonstrate a way to prepare the K2TiF6:Mn phosphor with targeted morphology and very high quantum efficiency and also provide the route for the optimization of all Mn4+-activated fluoride phosphors used in white light-emitting diodes.
