The effects of fullerenol C60(OH)24 (Frl) at doses of 25, 50, and 100mg/kg/week (for a time-span of 3 weeks) on heart and liver tissue after doxorubicin (Dox)-induced toxicity in rats with colorectal cancer were investigated. In the present study, we used an in vivo Wistar male rat model to explore whether Frl could protect against Dox-induced(More)
In earlier in vitro investigations, fullerenol was shown to have a strong antioxidative capability. The present study examined the role of fullerenol as a potential antioxidative protector for doxorubicin-induced oxidative stress in the blood of rats through an investigation of the activity of glutathione-dependent enzymes (glutathione-S-transferase and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the possible protective role of fullerenol (FLR, C(60)(OH)(24) on doxorubicin (DOX)-induced lung toxicity using biochemical and histopathological approaches. Rats (Sprague-Dawley outbred) were randomly divided into five groups. The healthy control group received no medication (saline only). The other four groups had(More)
Over more than 20 years, the endophytic fungi have been explored as "biofactories" of novel bioactive substances, and they have not disappointed. Among the extracts and pure substances obtained from the culture broths or fungal biomass, some have exerted antibacterial activity ranging from moderate to powerful when tested on the bacterial strains resistant(More)
Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4), a transmembrane protein, has been identified in human adipose tissue and is considered to be associated with obesity-related type 2 diabetes. Since adipose tissue is relatively hypoxic in obese participants, we investigated the expression of DPP4 in human preadipocytes (hPA) and adipocytes in hypoxia, during differentiation(More)
A new method for fast transformation of competent bacterial cells has been developed. The transformation is induced with cholic acid analogues or saponins which cause reversible disruption of the bacterial membrane. This method shortens the time of transformation without significant loss of transformation efficiency in comparison to heat shock method and is(More)
