Resveratrol (Rev) can ameliorate cytotoxic chemotherapy-induced toxicity and oxidative stress. Arsenic trioxide (As2O3) is a known cytotoxic environmental toxicant and a potent chemotherapeutic agent. However, the mechanisms by which resveratrol protects the liver against the cytotoxic effects of As2O3 are not known. Therefore, in the present study we(More)
The antipseudomonal efficiency and mechanism of action of a novel engineered antimicrobial peptide, T9W, were evaluated in this study. T9W displayed high activity, with a lethal concentration (LC) of 1 to 4 μM against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, including against ciprofloxacin-, gentamicin-, and ceftazidime-resistant strains, even in the presence of 50 to 300(More)
We previously reported that GLI13-8, one of cationic antimicrobial peptides from linear avian β-defensin-4 (RL38) analogs, exhibited high antimicrobial activities against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. In the present study, we reported the in vitro cytotoxicity of GLI13-8 using the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide(More)
A study was conducted to determine the effects of feeding a blend of corn contaminated with Fusarium mycotoxins on the physical condition of pregnant and suckling sows and the development of their offspring. Halloysite nanotubes modified using the surfactant, stearyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride, were tested for its efficacy in protecting against the(More)
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are extremely attractive candidate for therapeutic agents due to their wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity and action mechanism different from antibiotics. In this study, a method using genetic engineering for obtaining an antimicrobial peptide, bovine lactoferricin derivative peptide LfcinB-W10, has been developed.(More)
CONTEXT Zearalenone (ZEN) is a common contaminant that is present in feedstuff of high humidity and high temperatures. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of diets contaminated with different concentrations of ZEN on immunomodulation in early pregnant rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight pregnant Sprague Dawley (SD) rats(More)
