Baker's yeast cells (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) were successfully used to selectively separate methylmercury and Hg(II). Several parameters affecting the degree of biosorption and the binding kinetics of methylmercury and Hg(II) were evaluated: solution pH, temperature, incubation time, amount of biomass and analyte, and presence of foreign ions.(More)
Selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) were synthesized by a green technology using lactic acid bacteria (LAB, Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and L. reuteri). The exposure of aqueous sodium selenite to LAB led to the synthesis of SeNPs. Characterization of SeNPs by transmission electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray spectrum(More)
This study focuses on the preparation at lab scale of selenomethionine-enriched white and wholemeal bread. Selenium was supplemented either by adding selenite directly to the dough or by using lab-made selenium-enriched yeast. The best results were obtained when using fresh selenium-enriched yeast. The optimum incubation time for selenomethionine-enriched(More)
Antimony migration from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers into aqueous (distilled water, 3% acetic acid, 10% and 20% ethanol) and fatty food simulants (vegetable oil), as well as into vinegar, was studied. Test conditions were according to the recent European Regulation 10/2011 (EU, 2011). Sb migration was assayed by ICP-MS and HG-AFS. The results(More)
Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and lactic bacteria have shown their ability to accumulate and transform inorganic selenium into organo Se compounds. The objective of this work was to evaluate selenium biotransformation during brewing by using S. cerevisiae and Saccharomyces uvarum for Ale and Lager fermentation, respectively. Se-enriched beer was produced(More)
Etude r6trospective de tous les cas de biopsies pancr6atiques sous 6cho endoscopie, r6alis6es par un op6rateur exp6riment6 (OM). Les pr616vements fix6s en AFA ont 6t6 communiqu6s dans des tubes coniques, centrifug6s et techniqu6s selon la m6thode histologique usuelle. Pour chaque cas, 6 lames 6taient imm6diatement r6alis6es avec 2 HES et 4 lames blanches.(More)
The use of enriched Se isotopes as tracers has provided important information on Se metabolism. However, selenium isotopes are expensive and difficult to obtain. A simple and cheap strategy based on the production of [(77)Se]-methylselenocysteine ([(77)Se]-MeSeCys) when preparing sauerkraut in the presence of [(77)Se]-selenite was developed. The resulting(More)
