This study was undertaken to characterize the toxicokinetics of p-tert-octylphenol (OP), a weak estrogenic compound, in male and female rats. Male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were given a single dose of OP either by oral gavage (50, 125 or 250 mg/kg), by intravenous (iv) injection (2, 4, or 8 mg/kg), or by subcutaneous (sc) injection (125 mg/kg). In a(More)
Priming of defense reactions by an elicitor results in an enhanced ability of the plant to respond to subsequent pathogen challenges. We previously showed that application of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) to potato cell suspensions causes apoplastic acidification, but does not stimulate lipoxygenase (LOX) activity. Here, we tested the ability of various(More)
Pectobacterium carotovorum and Pectobacterium atrosepticum are dreadful causal agents of potato soft rot. Actually, there are no efficient bactericides used to protect potato against Pectobacterium spp. Biological control using actinobacteria could be an interesting approach to manage this disease. Thus, two hundred actinobacteria(More)
INTRODUCTION AND AIM Biological monitoring of n-hexane (HEX) is based on the measurement of urinary 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD). In 2001, the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists modified the biological exposure index (BEI) for HEX and suggested measuring free urinary 2,5-HD (without hydrolysis) (3.5 micromol/l) instead of total 2,5-HD(More)
We used a modified physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) to describe/predict n-hexane (HEX) alveolar air concentrations and free 2,5-HD urinary concentrations in humans exposed to n-HEX by inhalation during a typical workweek. The effect of an increase in workload intensity on these two exposure indicators was assessed and, using Monte Carlo(More)
The objective of this study was to develop a physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model for p-tert-octylphenol (OP) for understanding the qualitative and quantitative determinants of its kinetics in Sprague-Dawley rats. Compartments of the PBPK model included the liver, richly perfused tissues, poorly perfused tissues, reproductive tissues, adipose(More)
A sensitive and reproducible procedure using gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry is described for the determination of p-tert-octylphenol (OP), a persistent degradation product of alkylphenol ethoxylates that binds to the estrogen receptor in blood and tissues. The first step involved the extraction of blood (200 microL) or tissue homogenate(More)
While the mechanisms underlying quantitative resistance of plants to pathogens are still not fully elucidated, the Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs)-triggered response model suggests that such resistance depends on a dynamic interplay between the plant and the pathogen. In this model, the pathogens themselves or elicitors they produce would(More)
