ATP caused a dose-dependent, receptor-mediated increase in the release of glutamate and aspartate from cultured astrocytes. Using calcium imaging in combination HPLC we found that the increase in intracellular calcium coincided with an increase in glutamate and aspartate release. Competitive antagonists of P(2) receptors blocked the response to ATP. The(More)
BACKGROUND Growth-modulating noncytotoxic activity of 8-chloro-adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (8-Cl-cAMP) showed inhibitory effect on growth of a wide variety of cancer cell lines in vitro and in vivo. To assess possible genotoxic effects of 8-Cl-cAMP, we conducted a study in vivo using male BALB/c mice. METHODS Clastogenic effects were estimated by(More)
There are several methods for cultivation of Paenibacillus larvae, the causative agent of American foulbrood (AFB) in honey bees. Protocols for detection of sub-clinical levels of the bacterium from honey and bee samples include heat treatment of samples. The main objective of this study was to investigate if there is variability in temperature resistance(More)
Fumagillin, an antibiotic compound produced by Aspergillus fumigatus, is effective against microsporidia and various Amoeba species, but is also toxic when administered systemically to mammals. Furthermore, a recent in vivo study by Stanimirovic Z et al. 2007: (Mutat Res 628:1-10) indicated genotoxic effects of fumagillin. The aim of the present study was(More)
Nosema species were determined in honey bees from Balkan countries. A total of 273 Nosema-positive samples were analysed. Duplex PCR and PCR-RFLP with newly designed primers, nos-16S-fw/rv, were used to differentiate between N. apis and N. ceranae. N. apis was detected in only one sample (collected in 2008 in Serbia) and N. ceranae in all the others (N =(More)
Only two mitochondrial haplotypes (Korea and Japan) of Varroa destructor, the ectoparasitic honey bee mite, are known to be capable of infesting and successfully reproducing in Apis mellifera colonies worldwide. Varroa destructor (then called Varroa jacobsoni) was observed in Serbia for the first time in 1976. In order to obtain insight into the genetic(More)
The incidence, symptoms and consequences of Nosema ceranae infection were monitored in 200 honey bee colonies in Serbia over 5 years (2008–2012) to reveal if they display characteristics described for nosemosis type C. Continual high frequency of N. ceranae-positive colonies was recorded within each study year, ranging from 73 to 98 %. A seasonal pattern in(More)
Apitol, with cymiazole hydrochloride as the active ingredient, is used in bee-keeping against the ectoparasitic mite Varroa destructor. The preparation was evaluated for genotoxicity in cultured human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Sister chromatid exchange, the mitotic index and the cell proliferation index were determined for three experimental(More)
Fumagillin is a naturally secreted antibiotic of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus. It is used in veterinary medicine against microsporidiosis of bees and fish. In this study, the genotoxicity of fumagillin (in the form of fumagillin dicyclohexylamine) was evaluated in mouse bone-marrow cells using the mitotic index (MI), the chromosome aberration (CA)(More)
Canine babesiosis is a frequent and clinically significant tick-borne disease. Sixty symptomatic dogs with clinical findings compatible with babesiosis were included in this study conducted in Serbia. After clinical examination, blood samples were taken for microscopic examination, complete blood count (CBC), Canine SNAP 4Dx Test, DNA analyses and(More)
