Although the biological effects of some nanomaterials have already been assessed, information on toxicity and possible mechanisms of various particle types are insufficient. Moreover, the role of particle properties in the toxic reaction remains to be fully understood. In this paper, we aimed to explore the interrelationship between particle size, shape,(More)
A sensitive and specific method is described for the simultaneous determination of atropine and its metabolites in rat urine by combining liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS(n)). Various extraction techniques (free fraction, acid hydrolyses and enzyme hydrolyses) and their comparison were carried out for investigation of the metabolism(More)
In order to increase the stability of thermophilic Thermomyces lanuginosus GH11 xylanase, TLX, a disulfide bridge Q1C-Q24C was introduced into the N-terminal region of the enzyme. The apparent temperature optimum shifted upwards at pH 6.5 by about 10°C to 75°C. The resistance to thermal inactivation also increased by about 10°C. The melting temperature(More)
6-Oxy-(N-succinimidyl acetate)-9-(2'-methoxycarbonyl)fluorescein (SAMF), a new fluorescein-based amine-reactive fluorescent probe was well designed, synthesized and used as a pre-column derivatizing reagent for the determination of aliphatic amines in HPLC. It exhibited relatively pH-independent fluorescence (pH 4-9) and excellent photostability. The(More)
TDCPP and TCEP are two major types of organophosphorus flame retardants (OPFRs) that are bioaccumulative and persistent in the environment. The toxicity effects of TDCPP and TCEP on PC12 cell are not well understood. In the present study, we investigated morphology, viability and apoptosis in cultured PC12 cells in response to TDCPP and TCEP. The mRNA and(More)
An MEKC method with LIF detection has been developed for the determination of seven neurotransmitter amino acids (NAAs) using 1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-8-(N-hydroxysuccinimidyl butyric ester)difluoroboradiaza-S-indacene as the labeling reagent. After derivatization at room temperature for 30 min, the seven target NAAs including glycine, alanine, γ-aminobutyric(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) acts as an important regulator and mediator in numerous processes of biological systems. In this work, the analytical potential of a novel near-infrared (NIR, >600 nm) BODIPY-based fluorescent probe for NO, 8-(3,4-diaminophenyl)-4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-di(1,2-dihydro) naphtho[b, g]s-indacene (DANPBO-H) has been evaluated in high(More)
UNLABELLED Pentachlorophenol (PCP) and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (TCP) are suspected of disrupting the endocrine system and thus affecting human and wildlife reproduction, but the potential common mechanisms and biomarkers of chlorophenols (CPs) in the ovary are not fully elucidated. In the present study, the female rare minnow (Gobiocypris rarus) was exposed(More)
An MEKC-LIF method using 6-oxy-(N-succinimidyl acetate)-9-(2'-methoxy-carbonyl) fluorescein (SAMF) newly synthesized in our lab as a labeling reagent for the separation and determination of eight typical biogenic amines was proposed. After careful study of the derivatization condition such as pH value, reagent concentration, temperature, and reaction time,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity on rats induced by Nano-SiO2 Nano-Fe3O4 and SWCNTs. METHODS 42 Wistar rats were randomly divided into the control group, low and high dose groups of three kinds of nanoparticles. The rats were killed when rats were exposed by oral gavage for 4 weeks. The ratios of liver and kidney(More)
