Pollution of aquatic environments with heavy metals from natural water is a serious problem because of the toxicity of heavy metals to humans, fish, and other live organisms. Cheap and environmentally friendly methods for removing heavy metals from water are therefore needed. Algae have emerged as a promising biosorbent to bioextract heavy metal ions by(More)
The objective of the present work was to evaluate the effect of exogenously applied cadmium on the physiological response of green algae Chlorella vulgaris. The study investigated the long-term effect (18 days) of cadmium on the levels of algae biomass, assimilation pigment composition, soluble protein, oxidative status (production of hydrogen peroxide and(More)
Background The deprivation or abnormality of the molecular function of Wnt/b-catenin triggers the genesis and development of AD, and b-catenin is an important positive mediator in the Wnt/b-catenin signaling pathway. In our previous study, we found that Curcumin could inhibit the expression of b-catenin and prevent AD, but the mechanisms were not fully(More)
The APPswe plasmid was transfected into the neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y to establish a cell model of Alzheimer's disease. Graded concentration and time course experiments demonstrate that curcumin significantly upregulates phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), Akt, nuclear factor E2-related factor-2 (Nrf2), heme oxygenase 1 and ferritin expression, and(More)
