Exposure to excess testosterone (T) during fetal life has a profound impact on the metabolic and reproductive functions in the female's postnatal life. However, less is known about the effects of excess testosterone in males. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact (consequences) of an excess of T during fetal development on mature male(More)
This work shows that front face fluorescence spectroscopy associated to partial least squares (PLS) calibration is a fast and simple method to assess the nutritional impact of heat treatment on milk samples. Emission spectra of tryptophan (Trp) and of advanced Maillard products (AMP) were recorded on intact milk samples non-heated and heated at seven(More)
Toxic effects of pesticides are commonly associated with DNA damage. To evaluate the effect of the organophosphate diazinon on sperm DNA and to test whether melatonin could prevent this damage, male mice were intraperitoneally treated with melatonin, diazinon (1/3 or 2/3 LD50) or both; cauda epididymal spermatozoa were obtained on days 1 and 32(More)
The robustness of a multiresidue method has been analysed for the extraction and quantification of sulfamethoxypyridazine, sulfamethoxazole and sulfadimethoxine in porcine kidney by HPLC-DAD through a Plackett-Burman design. Two experimental responses were examined, the mean recovery from three replicates (accuracy) and their standard deviation (precision).(More)
A study of the feasibility of focused microwave-assisted Soxhlet extraction of acorn oil and comparison of results from analysis of trans fatty acids in the oil thus obtained with those for oils obtained by use of other methods commonly used for oil extraction are reported here. The proposed method was optimized by means of a 21-experiment screening design(More)
This paper presents, on the one hand, the study of the influence of the pH of the medium on the determination of bisphenol F (BPF), bisphenol A (BPA) and their corresponding diglycidyl ethers (BFDGE and BADGE, respectively) by GC-MS after a solid-phase extraction step, using BPA-d16 as internal standard and Parallel Factor Analysis (PARAFAC) decomposition(More)
Uncertainty is inherent in all experimental determinations. Nevertheless, these measurements are used to make decisions including the performance of the own measurement systems. The link between the decision and the true implicit system that generates the data (measurement system, production process, category of samples, etc.) is a representation of this(More)
Organophosphates like O,O-diethyl O-2-isopropyl-6-methyl pyrimidinyl-4-g-1-phosphorothioate (diazinon) are pesticides used worldwide, which can affect both animals and man even after a single exposure. Whereas their toxicity is due to acetylcholinesterase inhibition, their secondary toxic effects have been related to free oxygen radicals. This study(More)
The validation of an analytical procedure means the evaluation of some performance criteria such as accuracy, sensitivity, linear range, capability of detection, selectivity, calibration curve, etc. This implies the use of different statistical methodologies, some of them related with statistical regression techniques, which may be robust or not. The(More)
A non-separative, fast and inexpensive spectrofluorimetric method based on the second order calibration of excitation-emission fluorescence matrices (EEMs) was proposed for the determination of carbaryl, carbendazim and 1-naphthol in dried lime tree flowers. The trilinearity property of three-way data was used to handle the intrinsic fluorescence of lime(More)
