SPECIATION OF MERCURY IN DOLPHIN LIVER: A TWO-STAGE MECHANISM FOR THE DEMETHYLATION ACCUMULATION PROCESS AND ROLE OF SELENIUM
Abstract Liver samples of Stenella coeruleoalba dolphins, beached along the Adriatic and Ionian coasts of Apulia (southern Italy), have been analysed for their mercury, methyl mercury and seleniumExpand
DETECTION OF XYLELLA FASTIDIOSA IN OLIVE TREES BY MOLECULAR AND SEROLOGICAL METHODS
TLDR
The identification of X. fastidiosa in OQDS-affected trees represents the first confirmed detection of this bacterium in the European Union (EU), but its exact role in the aetiology of this disease is yet to be determined. Expand
Determination of ochratoxin A in foods: state-of-the-art and analytical challenges
TLDR
Analytical methods for evaluation of the occurrence of OTA in foods, human exposure, and risk assessment are critically reviewed and synthetic counterparts to natural antibodies in the form of molecularly imprinted polymers seem a promising alternative to IAC for sample preparation. Expand
Highly Efficient Gluten Degradation by Lactobacilli and Fungal Proteases during Food Processing: New Perspectives for Celiac Disease
TLDR
Food processing by selected sourdough lactobacilli and fungal proteases may be considered an efficient approach to eliminate gluten toxicity. Expand
Ochratoxin A determination in paired kidneys and muscle samples from swines slaughtered in southern Italy
TLDR
Results obtained plotting ELISA vs. HPLC results show that ELISA tends to slightly underestimate the OTA content compared to HPLC; nevertheless, ELISA remains an invaluable tool as rapid screening semiquantitative technique. Expand
Glucose fast-response amperometric sensor based on glucose oxidase immobilized in an electropolymerized poly(o-phenylenediamine) film.
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this represents the first report of a membrane capable, at the same time, of immobilizing GOx and rejecting ascorbate, and the interesting electrode behavior can be rationalized by using an existing model predicting the amperometric response of an immobilized GOx system. Expand
Simultaneous determination of ochratoxin A and cyclopiazonic, mycophenolic, and tenuazonic acids in cornflakes by solid-phase microextraction coupled to high-performance liquid chromatography.
A solid-phase microextraction (SPME) method, coupled to liquid chromatography with diode array UV detection (LC-UV/DAD), for the simultaneous determination of cyclopiazonic acid, mycophenolic acid,Expand
Isolation and pathogenicity of Xylella fastidiosa associated to the olive quick decline syndrome in southern Italy
TLDR
Needle-inoculation experiments under different environmental conditions proved that the Salentinian isolate De Donno belonging to the subspecies pauca is able to multiply and systemically invade artificially inoculated hosts, reproducing symptoms observed in the field. Expand
Solid-phase microextraction – gas chromatography mass spectrometry: A fast and simple screening method for the assessment of organophosphorus pesticides residues in wine and fruit juices
A SPME-GCMS method for the determination of a mixture of organophosphorus pesticides (phorate, diazinon, methyl-parathion, fenitrothion, malathion, fenthion, ethyl-parathion and methidathion) in wineExpand
