Bioimaging of Pb by LA-ICP-MS and Pb isotopic compositions reveal distributions and origins of Pb in wheat grain.

Sci Total Environ 2021 Aug 18;802:149729. Epub 2021 Aug 18.

State Key Laboratory of North China Crop Improvement and Regulation, Key Laboratory for Farmland Eco-environment of Hebei Province, College of Resources and Environmental Sciences, Hebei Agricultural University, Hebei, Baoding 071000, China. Electronic address:

Atmospheric heavy metal deposition in agroecosystems has increased recently, especially in northern China, which poses serious risks to crop safety and human health via food chain. Wheat grains can accumulate high levels of Pb even when wheat is planted in soils with low levels of Pb. However, the influence of atmospheric deposition on the accumulation and distribution of Pb in wheat grain is still unclear. Read More

Deoxynivalenol and Zearalenone-Synergistic or Antagonistic Agri-Food Chain Co-Contaminants?

Toxins (Basel) 2021 Aug 11;13(8). Epub 2021 Aug 11.

School of Biotechnology, National Centre for Sensor Research, Dublin City University, Dublin 9, Ireland.

Deoxynivalenol (DON) and Zearalenone (ZEN) are two commonly co-occurring mycotoxins produced by members of the genus . As important food chain contaminants, these can adversely affect both human and animal health. Critically, as they are formed prior to harvesting, their occurrence cannot be eliminated during food production, leading to ongoing contamination challenges. Read More

Combustion Synthesis of Aluminum Oxynitride in Loose Powder Beds.

Materials (Basel) 2021 Jul 27;14(15). Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics, AGH University of Science and Technology, 30 Mickiewicz Av., 30-059 Kraków, Poland.

This paper describes combusting loose powder beds of mixtures of aluminum metal powders and aluminum oxide powders with various grain sizes under various nitrogen pressure. The synthesis conditions required at least 20/80 weight ratio of aluminum metal powder to alumina powder in the mix to reach approximately 80 wt% of γ-AlON in the products. Finely ground fused white alumina with a mean grain size of 5 μm was sufficient to achieve results similar to very fine alumina with 0. Read More

Predictors of cognitive impairment in primary age-related tauopathy: an autopsy study.

Acta Neuropathol Commun 2021 08 5;9(1):134. Epub 2021 Aug 5.

Department of Pathology, Nash Family Department of Neuroscience, Ronald M. Loeb Center for Alzheimer's Disease, Icahn School of Medicine At Mount Sinai, Friedman Brain Institute, Neuropathology Brain Bank & Research CoRE, 1 Gustave L. Levy Place Box 1194, New York, NY, 10029, USA.

Primary age-related tauopathy (PART) is a form of Alzheimer-type neurofibrillary degeneration occurring in the absence of amyloid-beta (Aβ) plaques. While PART shares some features with Alzheimer disease (AD), such as progressive accumulation of neurofibrillary tangle pathology in the medial temporal lobe and other brain regions, it does not progress extensively to neocortical regions. Given this restricted pathoanatomical pattern and variable symptomatology, there is a need to reexamine and improve upon how PART is neuropathologically assessed and staged. Read More

Harnessing Sorghum Landraces to Breed High-Yielding, Grain Mold-Tolerant Cultivars With High Protein for Drought-Prone Environments.

Front Plant Sci 2021 30;12:659874. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Regional Agricultural Research Station, Palem - Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University, Hyderabad, India.

Intermittent drought and an incidence of grain mold disease are the two major constraints affecting sorghum production and productivity. The study aimed at developing drought-tolerant sorghum varieties possessing a high protein content and tolerance to grain mold with stable performance using additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) and genotype and genotype × environment interaction (GGE) biplot methods. Systematic hybridization among the 11 superior landraces resulted in subsequent pedigree-based breeding and selection from 2010 to 2015 evolved 19 promising varieties of grains such as white, yellow, and brown pericarp grains.

The Effects of 7 Days of Feeding Pulse-Based Diets on Digestibility, Glycemic Response and Taurine Levels in Domestic Dogs.

Front Vet Sci 2021 5;8:654223. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Veterinary Biomedical Sciences, Saskatoon, SK, Canada.

Grain-based carbohydrate sources such as rice comprise 30-50% of commercial pet foods. Some pet foods however have removed the use of grains and have instead incorporated pulses, such as peas and lentils, resulting in grain-free diets. The hypothesis was dog diets with higher levels of dietary fiber will produce a low glycemic response due to decreased rates of digestion and lowered bioavailability of all macronutrients and increased fecal bile salt excretion.
