Taken into consideration limited data about effects of palladium on cardiovascular system, the aim of our study was to compare toxicity of inorganic and organic palladium compounds on the isolated rat heart. The hearts (total number n=30, 6 for each experimental group) excised from Wistar albino rats, male sex, age 8 weeks, and body mass 180-200 g, were(More)
OBJECTIVE Attentional bias to emotion- and illness-related information plays a prominent role in many mental disorders, particularly major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders. Using the emotional Stroop task we investigated which variables beyond aspects of patients' psychopathology might influence reaction times and interference in the Stroop test.(More)
The reaction of K(2)PtCl(4) with the alkylating agent mechlorethamine hydrochloride, at a molar ratio of 1:2, results in the formation of 2-chloro-N-(2-chloroethyl)-N-methylethylammonium-tetrachloridoplatinate(II) complex. The hydrolytic activity of the novel Pt(II) complex was tested in the reaction with N-acetylated L-histidylglycine dipeptide at a molar(More)
The reaction of PdCl2, or K2PdCl4, with diethanolamine (DEA), in the molar ratio 1:2, affords the trans-[PdCl2(DEA)2] complex. X-ray structure analysis of this complex confirmed the formation of the trans-isomer. The complex crystallizes in the space group P42bc. The central Pd(II) ion is coordinated in an almost ideal square-planar fashion with a small(More)
The reaction of K(2)PtCl(4) with anticancer-alkylating agent mechlorethamine hydrochloride (CH(3)NH(C(2)H(4)Cl)(2) x HCl = HN2×HCl), in the molar ratio 1 : 2, affords the complex [H2N2](2)[PtCl(4)]. In vitro antimicrobial and lipoxygenase inhibitory activities of the complex and its precursor were evaluated. Antimicrobial activity of the HN2×HCl and(More)
The reaction of PdCl(2) with diethanolammonium chloride (DEAxHCl), in the molar ratio 1:2, affords the [HDEA](2)[PdCl(4)] complex (1). The hydrolytic activity of the novel Pd(II) complex 1 was tested in reaction with N-acetylated L-histidylglycine dipeptide (AcHis-Gly). Complex 1, as well as earlier prepared trans-[PdCl(2)(DEA)(2)] complex (2), and DEA, as(More)
The antioxidant properties of some phenolic Schiff bases in the presence of different reactive particles such as (•)OH, (•)OOH, (CH2=CH-O-O(•)), and (-•)O2 were investigated. The thermodynamic values, ΔH BDE, ΔH IP, and ΔH PA, were used for this purpose. Three possible mechanisms for transfer of hydrogen atom, concerted proton-electron transfer (CPET),(More)
Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of major depressive disorder (MDD) for a subset of depressed individuals. One of the possible routes by which cytokines can induce depressive symptoms is by promoting the dysregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis via altering glucocorticoid receptor (GR) function. We investigated the(More)
An efficient green Heck reaction protocol was performed using a triethanolammonium acetate ionic liquid-palladium(II) catalytic system. The ionic liquid used acts as a reaction medium, base, precatalyst-precursor, and mobile support for the active Pd species. Our experimental investigation indicates that performing the Heck reaction in ionic liquid is(More)
