We investigated cadmium(II) resistance and its association with exopolysaccharide (EPS) production in cyanobacteria. Increased EPS production was associated with Cd(II) resistance. The most resistant isolate, Synechocystis sp. BASO670, secreted the greatest amount of EPS (548 mg/L). EPS production by Synechocystis sp. BASO670 and Synechocystis sp. BASO672(More)
We report the successful outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment in two siblings with familial globozoospermia. After controlled ovarian hyperstimulation and oocyte pick-up, retrieved oocytes were mechanically activated before ICSI and a fertilization rate of 33.3% was achieved in the first case. The second couple underwent ICSI without(More)
In the present study, chromium, cadmium and metal mixed (chromium+cadmium) removal and its association with exopolysaccharides and uronic acids production in Synechocystis sp. BASO671 were investigated. It was investigated that BASO671 showed different removal ability when exposed to each metal solely and mixed metal. EPS production by BASO671 was increased(More)
Dichlorvos is an organophosphate insecticide that is widely used in pest control. Vitamin C (200mg/kg)+vitamin E (200mg/kg), dichlorvos (1.6mg/kg), or a combination of vitamin C (200mg/kg)+vitamin E (200mg/kg)+dichlorvos (1.6mg/kg) was given to rats via oral gavage for 7 weeks. When rats of the dichlorvos-treated group and the vitamins+dichlorvos-treated(More)
Chromium(VI) removal and its association with exopolysaccharide (EPS) production in cyanobacteria were investigated. Synechocystis sp. BASO670 produced higher EPS (548 mg L(-1)) than Synechocystis sp. BASO672 (356 mg L(-1)). While the EC(50) of the Cr(VI) for Synechocystis sp. BASO670 and Synechocystis sp. BASO672 were determined as 11.5 mg L(-1), and 2.0(More)
The study demonstrates the potential of using unicellular cyanobacteria species, isolated from Kucukcekmece Lake, Turkey, for biological Iron removal from aqueous solutions. EC(50) at 96h was estimated to be 13.92 mg/L for Synechocystis sp. E35. The optimum pH value and incubation temperature for the resistant isolate were 7.0 and 23 degrees C,(More)
In this report, we present a paper membrane-based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) platform for the determination of blood glucose level using a nitrocellulose membrane as substrate paper, and the microfluidic channel was simply constructed by wax-printing method. The rod-shaped gold nanorod particles were modified with 4-mercaptophenylboronic acid(More)
We report the preparation and characterization of spherical core-shell structured Fe3O4-Au magnetic nanoparticles, modified with two component self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) consisting of 3-mercaptophenylboronic acid (3-MBA) and 1-decanethiol (1-DT). The rapid and room temperature synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles was achieved using the hydroxylamine(More)
The morphology and ultrastructure of the rectum in Poecilimon cervus Karabağ, 1950 (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) were analyzed by light microscope, scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microscopes (TEM). The rectum is the final part of the digestive tract that plays an important role in water reabsorption in insects and so provides osmoregulation. In the(More)
We used the CO2 laser (group 1) and conventional microsurgery (group 2) for anastomosis of the freshly divided uterine horns of rats and compared the two methods. Each group was then compared with a control group in whom only exploration was carried out at laparotomy. Comparison was done regarding the clinical and histologic results. In addition, serum(More)
