The kinetics of bisphenol A (BPA) were investigated in zebrafish (Danio rerio) exposed to 100 microg BPA/l. BPA uptake was measured during a 7-day period followed by an elimination phase of similar duration. After 2, 6, 12, 24, 48, 72, 120 and 168 h of uptake/elimination, fish were analysed for their content of BPA, bisphenol A glucuronic acid (BPAGA) and(More)
Lipid-rich fractions from the flesh tissue of Mytilus edulis were obtained by solvent extraction and chromatographic separation, and tested for anti-inflammatory (AI) activity in vitro and in vivo. Inhibition of leukotriene production by isolated human neutrophils in response to calcium ionophore stimulation in the presence of exogenous arachidonic acid(More)
Protopine was extracted from Fumaria officinalis and purified by column chromatography. Urine samples were collected from horses and a human volunteer that had been administered either F. officinalis or protopine free base. Plant and urine samples were acetylated and analysed by GCMS after solid-phase extraction (SPE). The urinary metabolites of protopine(More)
The influence of sampling variables on the concentration of the dopamine metabolites 3-methoxytyramine (3MT), dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanilic acid (HVA) was examined in equine urine. A logarithmic transformation of the data for all horses gave distribution which approximated the normal distributions for each metabolite. The mean urinary(More)
Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC x GC) now occupies a niche within the GC technology regime. The technique is undeniably unique in the manner in which the experiment is conducted, the way results are presented and the interpretive opportunities offered. For the 1000th volume of this journal it is appropriate to expand upon these(More)
Kunzea ericoides is a member of the Myrtle group of tea trees. Leaf and twig material of K. ericoides was extracted with different solvents to afford terpene (including the essential oil), flavonoid and lipid classes (but no alkaloid class), which were subsequently screened for antibacterial, antitumour, cytotoxic, antioxidant and antiinflammatory activity.(More)
A new and sensitive high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) separation procedure coupled with tandem mass spectroscopy (MS and MS(2)) detection was developed to identify for the first time the oxidation products of 5β-scymnol [(24R)-(+)-5β-cholestan-3α,7α,12α,24,26,27-hexol] catalysed by bacterial hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD) reactions in vitro.(More)
