Calcium and Superoxide-Mediated Pathways Converge to Induce Nitric Oxide-Dependent Apoptosis in Mycobacterium fortuitum-Infected Fish Macrophages. - PloS one
Mycobacterium fortuitum causes 'mycobacteriosis' in wide range of hosts although the mechanisms remain largely unknown. Here we demonstrate the role of calcium (Ca+2)-signalling cascade on M. fortuitum-induced apoptosis in headkidney macrophages (HKM) of Clarias sp. M. fortuitum could trigger intracellular-Ca+2 influx leading to the activation of calmodulin (CaM), protein kinase C alpha (PKCα) and Calmodulin kinase II gamma (CaMKIIg). Gene silencing and inhibitor studies established the role of CaM in M. fortuitum pathogenesis. We noted that CaMKIIg activation is regulated by CaM as well as PKCα-dependent superoxide anions. This is altogether first report of oxidised CaMKIIg in mycobacterial infections. Our studies with targeted-siRNA and pharmacological inhibitors implicate CaMKIIg to be pro-apoptotic and critical for the activation of extra-cellular signal regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2). Inhibiting the ERK1/2 pathway attenuated nitric oxide synthase 2 (NOS2)-induced nitric oxide (NO) production. Conversely, inhibiting the NOS2-NO axis by specific-siRNA and inhibitors down-regulated ERK1/2 activation suggesting the crosstalk between ERK1/2 and NO is essential for pathogenesis induced by the bacterium. Silencing the NOS2-NO axis enhanced intracellular bacterial survival and attenuated caspase-8 mediated activation of caspase-3 in the infected HKM. Our findings unveil hitherto unknown mechanism of M. fortuitum pathogenesis. We propose that M. fortuitum triggers intracellular Ca+2 elevations resulting in CaM activation and PKCα-mediated superoxide generation. The cascade converges in common pathway mediated by CaMKIIg resulting in the activation of ERK1/2-NOS2 axis. The crosstalk between ERK1/2 and NO shifts the balance in favour of caspase dependent apoptosis of M. fortuitum-infected HKM.
Optical, vibrational, NBO, first-order molecular hyperpolarizability and Hirshfeld surface analysis of a nonlinear optical chalcone. - Spectrochimica acta. Part A, Molecular and biomolecular spectroscopy
The synthesis of (1E,4E)-1,5-di-p-tolylpenta-1,4-dien-3-one (DTDO) was done and its single crystals were grown by slow evaporation solution technique from 4-methylbenzaldehyde, acetone solution at room temperature. Crystal structure is determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and reveals that it belongs to the monoclinic system with four molecules in the unit cell (space group C2). The emission of green light from the sample confirms the second harmonic generation (SHG) of the specimen responsible for nonlinear optical property. The various vibration patterns of the specimen have been investigated by Fourier transform infrared and Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy. Optimized molecular geometry, vibrational patterns of DTDO are derived from density functional theory (DFT) calculations and the results are compared with experimental one. The molecular stability and bond strengths were investigated by applying the natural bond orbital analysis. Information about the size, shape, charge density distribution and site of chemical reactivity of the molecule has been obtained by mapping electron density with molecular electrostatic potential (MEP). Highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) energy gaps were calculated. The other molecular properties like charge transfer are explained using Mulliken population analysis and the first-order molecular hyperpolarizability (β) of the specimen is also estimated and SHG efficiency of DTDO was found to be 3.9 times that of KDP. Fingerprint plots and Hirshfeld surfaces were used to locate and analyze the molecular surface and bonding interactions in various methodologies utilized in the establishment of the relative energies.Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Glycaemic index (GI) of an Indian branded thermally treated basmati rice variety: a multi centric study. - The Journal of the Association of Physicians of India
Glycaemic Index (GI) is the classification of carbohydrates based on their ability to raise blood glucose levels and evidence shows that its usage has beneficial health implications. Rice forms a part of the Indian staple diet and one of the major energy contributors. Hence, it is important to establish the Glycaemic Index (GI) value of rice. However, due to availability of different varieties of rice it is important first to identify a lower GI variety and to make it available to the Indian population. Subjecting rice to thermal processing is also known to reduce the GI of rice.An Indian thermally treated basmati rice variety was hypothesised to be low in GI. This multi centric study was conducted to test this hypothesis in healthy volunteers.In this study, out of 83 participants, data points of 70 healthy volunteers were taken into consideration for arriving at the final GI value. The study procedure was similar to the recommendations by FAO/WHO. A multi centric trial was conducted to nullify any regional or genetic variability.It was observed that reference glucose curve had the maximum average peak of 166.37 mg/dL while the basmati sample had a lower peak (136.22 mg/dL). The mean blood glucose incremental area under the curve for reference food was 5969.64 mins.mg/dL (SEM 95.94) and for rice it was 3267.81 mins. mg/dL (SEM 76.21).In this studyThe GI of Indian branded basmati rice was found to < 55 thus, placing it in lower GI category. The Indian basmati rice because of its lower GI can prove to be a healthier rice alternative.
Fluorescence behavior of non-functionalized carbon nanoparticles and their in vitro applications in imaging and cytotoxic analysis of cancer cells. - Colloids and surfaces. B, Biointerfaces
We report fluorescence behavior in non-functionalized carbon nanoparticles (NCNP) prepared from lamp soot and their application in imaging of normal and cancer cells. Structural characterization of these particles by Raman spectroscopy showed characteristic peaks located at 1350 and 1590 cm(-1) corresponding to the diamond-like (D) and graphite-like (G) bands of the carbon allotropes respectively with the characteristic ratio I(D)/I(G)=2.24. X-ray diffraction study confirmed the presence of amorphous as well as graphitized carbon in these nanostructures with minimum grain size ≈2 nm. A typical luminescence lifetime measured by time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy was obtained 3.54 ns. The photoluminescence behavior of these particles was excitation dependent and gave off blue, green and red fluorescence under UV, blue and green excitation, respectively. Cellular uptake of these NCNP yielded excellent results for cell imaging of human embryonic kidney, lung carcinoma and breast adenocarcinoma cells. Cell imaging was further correlated with cytotoxicity in the above mentioned cell lines and also in leukemia cell lines. Dose dependant cytotoxicity was observed after 24 h up to 48 h of incubation of nanoparticles. Fluorescence microscopy of nanoparticle-cell interaction clearly indicated aggregation of the particles.Copyright © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
