Abstract

The diversification of activities on the shores on the one hand and the conflict between operators or part programs on the other hand make the monitoring and optimal management of resources in the coastal areas of the country compulsory.
An example of coastal issues that requires continuous and integrated management can be mentioned in some cases, such as coastal environmental issues and preventing possible damage to beaches. Addressing or reducing these problems is a serious challenge for local governments and central governments that, if continued, their harmful effects could have irreparable effects and damages. Therefore, beaches should be managed in such a way that they can be exploited. Rationalize the resources and capacities available.
One of the important issues related to coastal waters and their pollution is pollution of oil, and it is presented in order to reduce this important and effective pollutant which one of them is chemical purification, or the use of dispersant oil spots (dispersants). In this research, discussion of various types of dispersants has been carried out, and tests for toxicity and efficacy testing as well as quantitative testing of these materials have been carried out.
In the efficacy study it was found that if dispersant is effective, a quaternary solution is created which causes the water to become cloudy, and the reference solution that is used is not transparent, and only the oil spots are visible inside the water column. In the quantitative determination test 4 standard mixtures which each represent the performance of these materials, namely 100% efficiency, 75%, 50% and 25%.
In the quantification test, four standard mixtures prepared, that each represent the performance of these materials, namely 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%.
In addition, the treatment of oil with dispersants, due to increased concentration of dissolved oil in water, increases the effect of direct oil toxicity on plant and animal life. Also, the relationship between the efficacy of dispersant and the three viscosity, temperature and flow factors was investigated and it was concluded that the effectiveness of dispersant decreased with increasing viscosity; Some dispersants in higher temperatures and with lower salinity and other low temperature dispersants operate with higher salinity.

Abstract

The food security of indigenous population of the Russian Northern regions represents quite a pressing problem and there are a number of important factors that should be considered when studying the issue. The composition of food products included in the diet of indigenous population of different countries and Russia, the methods of food preparation and preservation during centuries were influenced by the natural and productive conditions of life, work and leisure, which necessitates the study of specific nature of such nutrition. Over the last years, the diet culture of the indigenous population of the Northern Russia changed significantly influenced by a number of reasons: the industrialization of the regions and the organized development of the enormous raw material resources located there (minerals, forest resources etc.); the impact of migration processes, which led to the broad northern areas of Russia being inhabited by the population from the center and south of Russia, as well as from other territories of the Soviet Union (which is particularly evident in the late 1940s and subsequent post-war years) that had own diet culture; organized access of the population to a variety of store-bought food products, which significantly replaced the traditional food. The article provides the analysis of the current aspects of food security of indigenous population of the Northern Russia aimed at identification of nutrition patterns of different ethnic groups of the Northern Russia, promoting the population’s efficient involvement in life activities.

Abstract

This study aims to determine the growth of sesame plants that applied biochar organic matter on coastal sandy land. The coastal sandy land area of Indonesia is large enough. It is known as one of the marginal lands that have low productivity due to dominant soil constituent material of sand (>80%) so that it affects the availability of water and plant nutrient negatively. To improve the water-holding capacity, an applied technology is urgently needed so that it can be used as a growing material of sesame. A novel technology through the use of specific biochar, activated coconut shell charcoal, was proposed. Due to its functions in optimizing growing medium, improving soil properties physically, chemically, and biologically as well as in holding water and providing nutrients, the used biological charcoal would work as biological soil amendments. It is expected that biochar can be continuous sources for plant needs. The experiment was factorial design laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design involved 14 treatments with three replications consisting of combinations of seven charcoal applications and two sesame varieties. The data were subjected to analysis of variance and Tukey’s Honestly Significant Difference test were used as a post-hoc analysis (p<0.05). The experimental results showed that the optimum plant growth was obtained from the application of coconut shell charcoal at a dose of 10 ton/ha combined with chicken manure at a dose of 30 ton/ha, such as tallest in height, highest net assimilation rate, and had most flowers.

Abstract

FeCrAl alloys having the composition of chromium added to iron is peculiar by in the increased corrosion resistance of the new metallic alloy compared to pure iron. Such FeChAl alloys are used in numerous different applications as a corrosion resistant, oxidation resistant and heat resistant material. Owing to their resistance and good mechanical characteristics, FeCrAl alloys are regarded as one of the main structural materials for use in nuclear power plants. They are commonly used within industrial applications where high-temperature oxidation resistance is needed. The good resistance to oxidation, sulfur resistance and corrosion resistance are attained due to a dense oxide film formed on the surface that prevents the rapid further degradation of the material. In this study, two FeCrAl alloys are investigated - Kh15Yu5 (15%Cr5%Al) and Kh23Yu5 (23%Cr5%Al). Using the method of Mössbauer spectroscopy, the study was conducted on the influence of temperature and period of heating on the cold-rolled ribbon of FeCrAl alloys Kh15Yu5 and Kh23Yu5 with the thickness of 50 µm. It is shown that these alloys, as a result of thermal effect, are prone to the layering in solid solution, forming the areas depleted and enriched with chromium and aluminum.

Abstract

Introduction: Continuing education (CE) is increasingly needed for nurses to keep pace with the rapid changes in patient care. A Learning Need Assessment (LNA) is a systematic approach to examining what individuals or groups need to learn. LNAs are often associated primarily with continuing education. Current CE programs are not well designed for showing nurses’ learning needs. Few programs are underpinned by needs analysis in some countries.
Design and Method: This cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the learning needs of clinically based nurses within medical, surgical and emergency units in Tehran (capital of Iran) hospitals. Data were collected using a learning needs assessment questionnaire developed based on nursing texts and literatures with calculated CVI equal to 0.91 and Chronbach Alpha equal to 0.87. It includes demographic information and 30 learning need for nurses. Nurses that had adequate experience in clinical nursing conveniently selected and determined their learning need.
Results: Ten educational need priorities were determined with 314 nurses, included: tele-nursing (distance-care) (71.60%), hospital infection control and personal protection (61.80%), new approaches of patient education (58.7%), professional communication (57.4%), safety and risk management (53.4%), wound nursing care and New way dressing (50.6%), Nursing research (49.5%), Nursing Law (48.1%), Nursing management (46.9%), Correct Reporting and documentation (46.3%) were among the top 10 education priorities, and over 45% of nurses needed full education.
Conclusion: Learning need assessment is an important and first step of educational planning for continuing education that can provide useful, effective and cost effective knowledge and skills for nurses.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify specific proteins that can slow down the SOCS protein activity in STAT signaling protein termination so that it will induce the increase in GH metabolic effect in enhancing the growth of broilers and their meat quality. It is, therefore, necessary to identify the molecular weight and the composition of the SOCS (Suppressor of Cytokine Signaling) protein acid that act in the signaling of STAT (Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription) activated by GH (Growth Hormone) in broilers. By identifying the molecular weight and the composition of the amino acids of SOCS proteins, there is a great chance to make a specific protein that can slow down the SOCS protein activity in STAT signaling protein termination. Therefore, there is an increase in GH metabolic effect in enhancing the broilers’ growth and their meat quality. The results indicated that SOCS-1 protein was present in broilers’ liver tissue. An examination with Western Blot noted that the molecular weight of the SOCS-1 protein was 98 kDa. This finding signifies that SOCS-1 protein is a protein that serves as negative feedback on broiler growth through growth hormone.

Abstract

The article describes the morphometric measurements of the adrenal cortex functional zones and analyzes the results of these measurements and the percentage correlation of the zones to the total adrenal cortex area. Besides, an analysis of the functional activity of the adrenal cortex zona fasciculate is presented. The research has shown that the highest tension of the adrenal gland function occurs in the animals inhabiting the north-west outskirts of Irkutsk (Novo-Lenino district). They have a thicker adrenal cortex zona fasciculate and reticular zone as well as a higher functional activity of the reticular zone in comparison to other study groups. This is probably indicative of an intensive production of glykocorticoid, androgens, and estrogens. On these grounds we can assume that this district is the most hazardous for the existence of living organisms which we believe to be a sign of unfavorable ecological conditions. The use of the muskrat as a bioindicator for the evaluation of the ecological conditions in different city districts and the Selenga River delta is unprecedented.

Abstract

This study was performed to the evaluation of auxin and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria priming on yield and yield components of wheat under drought stress. Experiment was conducted as a Split Split plot in RCBD design with 3 replications. Main factor included drought stress (irrigation on base of 25, 50 and 75% FC) and sub plots were inoculation at 4 levels (control, azotobacter, pseudomonas and a combination of two bacteria), also sub sub plot were auxin priming at 4 levels (0, 1, 2 and 4 mg.L-1). According to results, application of drought stress led to the reduction grain yield, so, the 50% and 75% water discharge treatments led to 9% and 37% the reduction of grain yield as compared to control, respectively. In relation to bacteria treatments, highest grain yield (4.35 t/ha) obtained by azotobacter inoculation. In relation to auxin application, the 4 mg. L-1 treatment led to 6% the increase of grain yield as compared to control. Highest means of grain yield (3.25 t/ha) under 75% discharge water observed by azotobacter inoculation. We concluded that priming with auxin and rhizobacteria, plays an important role in the induction of tolerance to drought and overcome limitations created by the drought stress on wheat.

The purpose of this work was studying of features of intra population variability of a lucerne with a mf-mutation on a complex of the qualitative signs, valuable as for the forage production as well as for the pharmaceutical industry. In the years 2016-2018, researchers of the 30 breed population, received as a result of an individual selections from a breed lucerne Krasnoyaruzhskaya 1 on the basis of a high expression of a mutation of multifoliolation (mf-mutation). The high variability of a population of the lucerne in the posterity of the second generation on the basis of expressiveness of the mf-mutation was established. The breed population was distributed by the index of an expression of the mf-mutation as follows: the group with low expressiveness of the sign included 52.8% of numbers, 9.9% of the numbers had the index of an expression up to the standard, 36.3% of the breed population exceeded the standard for 9.3-62.7%. As a result of researches the direct correlation between degree of an expression of the mf-mutation and the feeding efficiency of a lucerne is not revealed. There was established the breed population SP-11 at which the high expression of the mf-mutation and high efficiency of the elevated phytoweight against the background of the low maintenance of saponin and antotcyanin. The population of SP-11 will be included in the selection program for the creation of the lucerne breeds with a high fodder quality. The breed population SP-23, SP-24, SP-28 has a high expression of the mf-mutation, high efficiency of the elevated phytoweight against the background of the high content of the biologically active agents (saponins and antocyanins). These forms will be included in the selection program for creation of breeds of a lucerne with the high content of biologically active agents for the pharmaceutical industry.

Abstract

Harvesting haylage in rolls is one of the most effective ways of harvesting grass fodder. High-quality haylage cannot be obtained without the use of mowers-conditioners, reducing the drying time of the grass mass. The method of vector contours was used to study the crank-beam-drive mechanism of the mower-conditioner knife drive. Analytical equations are obtained, which describe the laws of travel, speed and acceleration of the knife movement. The parameters and modes of the knife drive mechanism are substantiated, tested under production conditions, which allow to reduce the power required by 1.6 times and partially reduce the oscillations of the knife.

Abstract

Annotation: the wound process is difficult, multicomponent and has its own a phase of character. Recently, there has been an active search for new products for the treatment and prevention of purulent wounds. The effect of sorbents on the process of wound healing is being studied. The impact of the damaging factor causes the development of inflammation, which leads to immediate biochemical changes. During primary alteration, cells are destroyed and their contents are released, the permeability of the vascular wall increases, and individual blood components can be easily transported to the external environment. Previously, a decrease in the concentration of total protein in the blood has already been noted. At the first stage of the wound process, one part of the protein is transferred to the exudate, and the other goes to decay to amino acids. In terms of energy disbalance amino acids enter into deamination and transamination reactions, as indicated by the high activity of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase as well as increased concentration of urea. The products of amino acid breakdown enter the Krebs cycle for subsequent energy production, which is necessary for further regeneration processes. Violations of the integrity of muscle tissue leads to the fact that the concentration of creatinine in the blood increases. Creatine phosphate due to the destruction of muscle fiber does not mobilize the generation of ATP, but reacts to non-enzymatic dephosphorylation with the formation of creatine anhydride - creatinine.

Abstract

This study determined the combined impact of various dietary protein levels (30, 35, 40%) in adult catfish feed and laserpuncture induction on enhancing the estrogen and vitellogenin levels, and egg quality, based on the fertilization rate (FR), hatching rate (HR), and survival rate (SR) after spawning. The test fish were 8–9-month-old FI hybrids obtained by cross-breeding a mature Sangkuriang female with a mature Paiton male. In total, 172 female (900–1500 g body weight) and 172 male (1140–1750 g body weight) catfish were collected from UPBAT Kepanjen District, Malang, Indonesia. Fish fed diets with increased protein levels and exposed to laserpuncture induction had significantly enhanced estrogen and vitellogenin blood serum levels (P<0.001) in weeks 3 and 6 compared to 6 weeks for the negative control. Based on the egg quality data, the addition of 40% protein in the diet of the reproductively mature females together with laserpuncture induction produced the highest FR, HR, and SR (P<0.05) compared to protein levels 30 and 35%, and the negative control.

Abstract

In this research, chitin and chitosan were used to remove the water pollutants and wastewater through adsorption process, due to their distinctive biological and physical-chemical characteristics, and their efficiency was investigated to remove ethylene glycol cationic pollutant from aqueous environments of wastewaters generated from airport. Using the ethylene glycol leads to the formation of wastes containing EG mixed with mineral salts. There are several methods for treating these wastes, in the research; we intend to investigate the efficiency of the adsorption phenomenon to remove ethylene glycol from industrial wastes. Non-continuous absorption experiments were conducted to examine the effect of the factors affecting the removal process, including the effect of contact time of absorbent with pollutant, PH, initial concentration of the pollutant and the amount of consumed absorbent. The results indicate that chitosan is suitable for absorbing ethylene glycol from industrial wastewaters, and by increasing absorbent weight, the absorption rate also increases.

Abstract

In this article, we studied the peculiarities of cyclophosphamide and imunofan effect on the processes of apoptosis and necrosis in Peyer’s patches of the rats’ small intestine. The study was conducted on 18 white mature rats, which were divided into three groups. Group I was administered imunofan according to the scheme on days 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 of the experiment at a dose of 0.7 µg/kg of body weight of the animal, Group II was administered cyclophosphamide once at a dose of 200 mg/kg (for 1 day), then imunofan according to scheme (on the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th day of the experiment) at a dose of 0.7 µg/kg body weight of the animal, and Group III - intact animals served. Ultrathin sections of Peyer’s patches of the rats’ small intestine were prepared and studied under electron microscope with further photographing. Mostly one type of cell death - apoptosis is detected in group I animals on the 7th and 30th day of the experiment in Peyer’s patches. The number of cells with apoptosis is directly proportional to the observation period, which seems to indicate the ability of imunofan to influence this process, maintaining the constancy of Peyer’s patches cellular composition in small intestine. In animals of group II, on the 7th day of the experiment, both apoptosis and necrosis take place, and on the 30th day it is mainly apoptosis. Apparently, this is due to the immunosuppressive effect of cyclophosphamide on the lymphocytes of Peyer’s patches of the small intestine, which manifests itself in the early period of the experiment after correction by the immunomodulator.

Abstract

Background: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of mitomycin C on human tenon fibroblast proliferation in contracted socket tissue.
Material and Methods: Human tenon fibroblasts from a patient who underwent socket reconstruction surgery were cultured in vitro. Cell cultures were exposed to 0.2, 0.4, and 1 mg/ml of mitomycin C solution for 5 min, and serum-free culture medium was used as a control. Proliferation was observed with the MTT cell proliferation assay 24 h after treatment.
Results: A 5 min exposure to mitomycin C at 0.2, 0.4, and 1 mg/ml caused inhibition of fibroblast proliferation (p < 0.05). The dose of mitomycin C was not significantly related to the rate of fibroblast proliferation inhibition. Mitomycin C 0.4 mg/ml caused the greatest inhibition of fibroblast proliferation compared with doses of 0.2 and 1 mg/ml.
Conclusion: Mitomycin C can inhibit tenon fibroblast proliferation of contracted socket tissue. Dose escalation of mitomycin C is not related to the rate of fibroblast proliferation inhibition.

Abstract

Refractive error and eye deviation are two common pediatric eye conditions. Ophthalmic screening in children is essential for protecting against vision loss. In 2010, the WHO estimated that refractive error causes 42% of vision disturbances globally. Uncorrected refractive error can cause eye deviation. In this study, we report the characteristics of refractive error and its correlation with eye deviation, as examined with the Hirschberg test, in children from elementary and junior schools in Lesanpuro, Malang. This study involved 606 children aged 6-17 years, from elementary and junior schools. This was a cross-sectional observational descriptive study. Data was obtained from refraction examinations and the Hirschberg test. Each subject underwent one refraction test and one test of eye position. The results showed emmetropia, myopia, astigmatism, and hyperopia in 450 (74.26%), 131 (21.62%), 56 (9.24%), and 5 (0.83%) children, respectively. Eye deviation was found in six children (1.65%), all of which showed extropia (100%). Eye deviation occurred together with myopia in one child (17%), and with astigmatism in three children (50%). Two further children (33%) had other conditions such as amblyopia and corneal scar. Eye deviation is most common in astigmatism. For refractive errors, myopia is the most common condition while hypermetropia is the least common.

Abstract

Introduction: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a common type of acute leukemia in adults. The RAS pathway dysregulation is one of the most common routes of the cancers and RASA1 gene family plays a key role on RAS deactivation. The Mir182 is involved in cancer cells proliferation and survival. So, the aim of the current study was to determine the expression of RASA1 and Mir182 in patients with AML using Real time PCR and compare it with control group.
Materials and Methods: For this purpose, the blood samples were collected from 60 AML patients and 30 healthy individuals as control. The RNA extracted, quality and quantity of the RNA determined, cDNA synthesized and primers were designed. Then genes expression investigated using Real time PCR and ∆∆CT computational techniques. Results analyzed using GraphPad Prism 6.0 software.
Results: According to the results, the RASA1 gene expression significantly decreased in the AML patients compared to the normal group (P<0.0001), while the expression of Mir182 increased in the AML compared to the healthy people (P<0.0001). No significant correlation was observed between age, sex, WBC, PLT, HGB, Blast and FAB subtype with the disease (P> 0.05).
Conclusion: These results suggested elevated expression of the Mir182 might suppress the RASA1 gene expression. So, determining of the RASA1 and Mir182 levels might be a useful indicator for prognosis of the AML.

Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to determine differences in glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activity after multiple doses of methanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaves in a trabecular meshwork cell culture from primary congenital glaucoma patients.
Material and Methods: This was an experimental laboratory study; cell line cultures were divided into four groups (negative control and three treatment groups). The treatment groups were exposed to methanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaves at dosages of 15 µg/mL, 20 µg/mL, and 25 µg/mL. After four hours incubation, GPx activity was measured in all groups using a colorimetric microplate reader.
Results: ANOVA analysis found that there was a difference in GPx activity between treatment groups. Each Moringa oleifera extract dosage (15 µg/mL, 20 µg/mL, and 25 µg/mL) significantly differed from each other, with dosage 25 µg/mL having the highest GPx activity. The correlation analysis showed there was a significant association between exposure to Moringa oleifera extract and GPx activity with a positive correlation coefficient (r = 0.962, p < 0.005), which means higher dosages of Moringa oleifera extract will increase GPx activity. Linear regression analysis found thet every 1 mg/mL dosage of Moringa oleifera extract will increase GPx activity by 1.217 mU/mL.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that there were differences in GPx activity between treatment groups and there was an influence of dosage of methanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaves on GPx activity, such that increasing doses of methanol extract of Moringa oleifera leaves will further increase GPx activity.

Abstract

Problems of climatic changes and questions of the use of the natural resources for creation of a food security system are discussed. It demands an involvement in the agrarian production of the cretaceous South of the European part of Russia of local vegetable biological resources and of use for this potential of natural forage grasslands of the territory. The main objective of the made researches was assessment of territorial confinedness of economic and valuable plant species and also a status and productivity of a natural forage grassland within agrolandscapes of the cretaceous South of the European Russia (the territory of the Belgorod region). Biological and vegetable resources of the natural forage grasslands of the East part of the Belgorod region in a subband of the southern forest-steppe were studied. Field geobotanical inspections of large arrays of ravine and frame complexes and meadows, of the most perspective for the organization of haymaking and pasturable economy, were realized in 2012-2018. Research stations are located in Alexeyevsky district of the Belgorod region (tab time – 2002). The climate of the studied territory is moderately continental with a big annual amplitude of temperatures, a rather soft winter with a frequent thaw and snowfalls; with the solar and long summer; moderate unstable moistening with dominance of summer rainfall. It is established that in the steppe calciphilous communities long-term herbs prevail, and bushes and trees play the subordinated role. At decrease in degree of a pasture, intensity of mowing and recreational loading. The share of wood and shrubby vegetation increases. The overground phytomass of natural forage grasslands increases in process of remoteness from settlements and decreases in economic loading. The biggest value for the livestock production has communities with dominance of Bromopsis inermis, mixed herbs and the content of bean herbs of 15-25%. The received data about productivity and biological capacity of natural forage grasslands, allows to plan their share in the haying and pasturable line during cultivation of cattle. The oveground phytomass of communities slightly changed by years of a research. Communities with dominance of Bromopsis inermis and mixed herbs – on 50-68 g/m2 are higher than the others, have the largest phytoweight. The main phytomass of hay crops consists by the types having high growth rate: Bromopsis inermis, Diplotaxis cretacea, Festuca orundinacea, Lotus corniculatus, Matthiola fragrans, Medicago falcata. Perspective forage grasslands are located in the lower slope clots. Distribution of the types by the economic value showed that cereals make 10.8-47.2%, beans – 15.1-25.1% on weight of an absolute dry material. The correlation between productivity of the overground phytomass of communities and a projective covering (r=0.736) is discovered. The use of the studied territories as forage grasslands will allow to use rationally an arable land and to reduce the price of livestock production in the Belgorod region for 15-20%.

Download Full Article - PDF format Abstract

 

Abstract

The success of a sustainable agriculture program is determined by the farmers, who are the main actors. Zero waste technology started to be used a few years ago, but there is still little awareness among farmers about how to use it. A large number of animal husbandry households have used biogas energy sources for cooking through the utilization of dairy cattle manure. The use of these technologies still causes problems, because there is a great deal of liquid and solid waste every day. The waste from biogas processing can be converted into liquid and solid fertilizers. This study aims to analyze the factors that influence the adoption of biogas waste technological innovations by farmer groups. The variables that are assumed to affect the adoption of the technology are age, level of education, the managerial skills of the farmer group, level of confidence in the success of the technology, the technological needs, interest in product sales, and the amount of guidance from extension officers. The research sample consists of the members of farmer groups who were chosen using a random sampling method from two farmer groups in different locations. The research results showed that the factors affecting the adoption of innovations in biogas waste technology are the level of education, the level of confidence in the success of the technology, interest in the product sales, and amount of guidance from extension officers.

Abstract

The results of the hydroecological study of the small Oskolets river in the area of influence of mining enterprises are presented. It is shown that the residential industrial flow of Gubkin city has a leading influence on the hydrochemical situation. Discharges of drainage waters made by the Lebedinsky mining and processing plant have a definite impact on the hydro-ecological situation with respect to the content of fluorine and lead compounds, and occasionally with respect to nitrogen compounds. The dynamics of hydrochemical indicators makes it possible to note trends related both to the production activities of the mining complex and the development of agricultural and industrial-urban infrastructure. In particular, there is an increase in the contribution of nitrogen, nickel, and sulphate compounds from the industrial and urban sector of Gubkin city, a slight increase in the supply of copper from residential and agricultural areas with periodic peak values of copper concentrations from the urban sector.

Abstract

The paper deals with the analysis of long-term observations of the manganese distribution in the soils of the south-western part of the Central Chernozem region of Russia in the Belgorod region. The soil mantle of the survey area is represented mainly by typical chernozem soil, leached chernozem soil and common chernozem soil. It has been found according to the results of a continuous agrochemical survey that 56.4% of cultivated soils belongs to the category with moderate supply of movable manganese, and 38.7% - to the category with low supply. It has been noted that among the main legumes white lupine has a very high ability to absorb manganese. The average content of this metal in its grain is 1065 mg / kg, which is 44 times more than in soybeans and 120 times more than in peas. Among man-made sources of manganese in agrocenoses, organic fertilizers are the main ones.

Abstract

Background: The ratio of pericytes:endothelial cells in normal retinal vasculature is 1:1. Pericyte loss is the earliest morphological change in the diabetic retina and predominant characteristic in diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is associated with angiopoietin 2 (Ang-2). The aim of this study is to determine the role of an Ang-2 inhibitor in decreasing pericyte loss in diabetic rats.
Material and Methods: True experimental using rat model. Diabetic rats induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ). The samples were divided into 5 groups, injected intravitreally with vehicle (DMSO) or Ang-2 inhibitor with variation dose (10,20, and 30 μg). After one month the rat eyes were enucleated. Retinal digest preparation and HE staining was done to examine the retinal vasculature and count pericyte : endothel ratio.
Results: The number of pericytes reduced by 40% (1:2.5) after five weeks of diabetes induction in the diabetic rat model. The group receiving 10 μg Ang-2 inhibitor showed the best results in terms of reducing pericyte loss (1:1.8).The group receiving 20 μg Ang-2 inhibitor had a pericyte:endothelial ratio of 1:2.1. The pericyte loss was not decreased in the group receiving 30 μg Ang-2 inhibitor (1:2.8). Linear regression analysis revealed that there was a positive relationship between administration of the Ang-2 inhibitor and a reduction in pericyte loss in diabetic rats (p > 0.05).
Conclusion: Intravitreal administration of an Ang-2 inhibitor, at certain doses, reduced pericyte loss in diabetic rats.

Abstract

Currently, it is known that saturated fatty acids in palm oil have a negative effect on the body: they activate the thrombus formation process, increase blood cholesterol levels and develop other metabolic disorders, which leads to the development of cardiovascular and oncological diseases, and also to dysfunction of the organs of the gastrointestinal tract. The aim of the study was to establish the morpho-functional condition of mandibular condylar cartilage in white rats of different ages under conditions of excessive use of palm oil and to assess the possibility of correcting the identified changes using the Garcinia Cambogia extract. The study was conducted on 216 white rats of three age groups: immature, mature and senile, divided into 3 groups. 1st group - control; 2nd group - animals treated with palm oil at the rate of 30 g / day / kg; Group 3 - rats, which after 6 weeks of administering palm oil began to receive Garcinia Cambogia extract at a rate of 0.25 g / kg body weight. The periods of observation were 1, 10, 30 and 60 days after the end of 6 weeks from the start of palm oil use. The histologic slides of mandibular condylar cartilage were made according to standard methods. The total width of the condylar cartilage of the lower jaw, the width of its individual zones, the volume content of primary spongiosa, and the number of cells in the zone of subchondral osteogenesis were measured on the sections obtained. The use of palm oil for 6 weeks at the rate of 30 g / day / kg is accompanied by inhibition of the osteogenic function of the condylar cartilage of the lower jaw of experimental animals, which increases with the duration of addition of palm oil to the diet. On day 1 of observation, the maximum in amplitude deviations are observed in immature animals, the minimum - in senile animals. In the future, the rate of increase of changes are maximum in senile animals. The introduction of the Garcinia Cambogia extract at the rate of 0.25 mg / day / kg starting from the 7th week of using palm oil is accompanied by smoothing the negative influence of the experimental conditions on the osteogenic function of the condylar cartilage from 10 to 60 days of observation in immature and mature rats and from 30 to 60 days in senile rats.

Abstract

Background: Bacterial resistance to the drugs known for their treatment is on the increase, therefore suggesting the need to search for dependable natural products as alternative for cure and prevention. Efforts in this regard have focused on plants because of their use historically and the large portions of the world’s population relying on plants for the treatment of infectious and non-infectious diseases.
Methods: Some ornamental plants’ extracts in compares with commercial antibiotics were tested in vitro on Salmonella typhi, Salmonella typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis for medicinal values. Quantitative and qualitative phytochemicals; free radical scavenging capacity, ferric reducing antioxidant property and hydroxyl radical scavenging of the plants’ extracts were determined by chemical methods.
Results: Varied degrees of inhibition and in some cases resistance were observed with the extracts on the four bacteria species. However, highest inhibition of 30.33±0.35 mm was recorded on Salmonella typhimurium, followed by S. epidermidis with zone of 30.00±0.00 mm both with H. crepitans extract. Cotrimozazole most inhibited Salmonella typhimurium with a zone of 29 mm and followed by ofloxacin with a zone of 27.33 mm on S. epidermidis. MIC activity of the extract was between 12.5 – 50 mg/ml and MBC activity from 25 – 100 mg/ml.
Conclusions: Valuable antibacterial effect of the plants’ extracts correlating with the phytochemicals and antioxidants potentials, suggest the plants acceptability for folklore and could be of universal recognition for handling diseases that plaque around us mostly in some urban and rural communities where modern medicine are not affordable and accessible by the poor.

Abstract

In the experiment, 500 medical leeches, three types: H. verbаna, H. medicinalis, H. orientalis. The experiment was carried out for half a year, on leeches of middle and mother age. The leeches were set aside by 8-10 pieces in a tank with water after blood feeding, the survival rate after the manifestation of partial cannibalism was investigated. As a result, we found that the survival after all wounds in all three types was about 35%. After the wounds had healed, survivors of leeches developed constrictions at the wound site, which remained with them for life. It should be noted that partial cannibalism was observed in all three types of medicinal leeches, as well as in one species, and between species.

Abstract

A green mustard plant (Brassica juncea L) is often attacked by plant pests’ organisms, which often disturb farmers. This research aims to determine the types of pests and the effect of papaya leaf extract as a vegetable pesticide on pests in the green mustard plant. The research method used was an experiment with a completely randomized design consisting of 5 treatments and 5 replications with each concentration of papaya leaf extract as well as 0%, 25%, 50% 75% and 100%. The parameters observed were the types of pests and the impact of papaya leaf extract as vegetable pesticides on pests in the green mustard plant. The data collection was using observation sheets and documentation. The data analysis used descriptive and inferential analysis. The inferential analysis used the ANOVA test and continued with the Least Significance Different (LSD) test at a significant level of 0.05. The results show that there were several types of pests such as small snails, green grasshoppers (Atractomorpha crenulata), armyworms (Spodoptera litura), green caterpillars or leaf destroyers (Plutella xylostella). The results of statistical analysis showed that the administration of papaya leaf extract had a significant effect on pests that attack the green mustard plant. The results of the variance analysis showed a significant value of treatment (sig: 0.000) smaller than the alpha value (α: 0.05). Furthermore, the LSD test showed that the fifth treatment with 100% concentration was significantly different from other treatments in controlling pests in the green mustard plant.

Abstract

Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are beneficial bacterial that colonize plant roots and enhance plant growth by a wide variety of mechanisms. Seven isolates of bacteria were successfully isolated and phenotypically, biochemically, physiological and molecular characterized. Subsequently to investigate the effect of PGPR isolates on the growth of carob tree, a pot culture experiement was conducted as Centre for Innovation and Technology Transfer (CITT), Meknes, Morocco. All the isolates were gram negative, rods, motile, able to grow on YDC medium and citrate simmons positive, degrade glucose, fructose and mannitol, capable of hydrolyzing esculin and starch. All strains are able to produce (74-150µgml-1) of indole acetic acid, nitrogen fixatin and all isolate are unable to produce ammonia, chitinase and cellulase, the strains 2018-3, 2018-4 and 2018-5 showed protease activity. The pecentage of solibilization of phosphate varied between 15% to 45%, the maximum phosphate solubilization was identified by stain 2018-4. Sequencing of 16SrRNA genes led to the identification of two family of bacteria : Bacillaceae and Pseudomonadaceae. The species of bacteria are : Bacillus thuringiensis, two of Bacillus flexus, two of Pseudomonas gessardii, Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thaonhiensis. The analysis the result showed that the highest vegetative growth was obtained from stain 2018-4 such as plant height (13.6cm), root length (13.65cm), fresh weight of the aerial part (1.09g) and fresh weight of the root part (0.42g) in comparison to untreated plant.

Abstract

The land in Central Sulawesi, particularly in Sigi Regency, is still quite large to cultivate shallots. With suitable rainfall and temperature as well as adequate facilities and infrastructure, the variety of shallots planted by farmers in Sigi Regency is Lembah Palu variety (local). Lembah Palu shallots are suitable to be processed as fried shallots because, in addition to having distinctive aroma and taste, they remain dry/crispy although stored for a long time. With such potential, it is necessary to make efforts to increase Lembah Palu shallot production. In fact, low production and quality of farm yields have made it difficult to gain maximum profits. In addition to considering the profits to gain, farmers also pay attention to any potential farm risks. (A high production risk will affect farmers’ behavior in decision making). This study aimed to reveal farmers’ behavior towards Lembah Palu shallot farm risks. The study was conducted in February to May 2018 at the center of Lembah Palu shallot production in Sigi Regency. The data analysis was done using a quantitative descriptive approach. Production risk was analyzed using multiple linear regressions with Cobb-Douglas production function as well as Just and Pope production function; Farmers’ behavior was analyzed using Khumbakar mathematical model. The results showed that 69.68% of the behavior of Lembah Palu shallot farmers in Sigi Regency was risk averse and 30.32% as risk takers. Recommendation. In order to gain higher yields, farmers should be risk takers.

Abstract

The productivity of wheat in Nepal is low compared to the world average and very low compared to countries like New Zealand and Ireland, and it has remained nearly stagnant in the past ten years. Genetic factors, water and climate seem to be a limiting factor for wheat productivity in Nepal. Breeding for tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress and study of their genetic stability under stress are important for improving the productivity of wheat. We assessed the genetic diversity of 20 genotypes of wheat released or in the pipeline in Nepal, by 12 SSR markers linked to drought tolerance and 4 SSR markers linked to heat stress tolerance. The first set clustered 20 genotypes into 4 clusters, 3 of which further sub clustered into 8 sub clusters. 2 of the genotypes, namely BL-4707 and NL-1325, are distantly related to the rest of the genotypes. The second set of SSR markers clustered 20 genotypes into 5 clusters, 2 of which further subclustered into 4 subclusters. 2 of the genotypes, namely NL-1247 and NL-1325, are distantly related to each other and the rest of the genotypes. This study identified both closely related genotypes and distantly related genotypes of wheat in alleles presumably linked to drought and heat stress tolerance. The finding of this study is expected to be useful for breeding for drought and heat stress tolerance and study of the interaction of genotypes and environment as well.

Abstract

Given piece of the research work was conducted in the seasons 2011-2018. The object of research was the mycobiota of macromycetes of the Botanical Garden of Belgorod State University (Belgorod, Russian Federation). The main subject of research was the spatial-ecological organization of the mycobiota of macromycetes. In the process of research, practical methods of direct observation from the mycocenological arsenal, theoretical-practical methods of analysis-synthesis, decomposition-composition and theoretical methods of correlating the abstract and the specific, and idealization were used. Based on the generalization of experimental data obtained in the course of practical studies of the spatial ecological organization of mycobiota of macromycetes carried out in the territory of the Botanical Garden of Belgorod State University, the principles of decomposition analysis of the structure of mycobiota of macromycetes of individual natural territorial entities are substantiated. A scheme of compositional construction of mycobiota of macromycetes is proposed, as well as a scheme in the form of a linear sequence showing the spatial ecological organization of mycobiota of macromycetes in a “pure form”: mycobiota - mycochore (mycocenosis, mycoaggregation) - mycosynusia-3 - mycene cell - mycocell.

Abstract

Introduction: Doxorubicin is the drug of choice in the treatment of many malignant neoplasms, but its use is limited due to the risk of developing severe cardiomyopathy. This problem necessitates the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cardiomyopathy.
Material and Methods: The study was conducted on 80 male white Wistar rats, which were administered the following drugs during the experiment: doxorubicin (Teva) at a dose of 20 mg /kg, ethoxydol at a dose of 50 mg/kg, carbamylated darbepoetin at a dose of 50 mg/kg. The hearts of the rats were perfused in the installation of a Langendorf-isolated heart. All rats were recorded contractility indicators: maximum intraventricular pressure (IVP) (mm Hg), minimum IVP (mm Hg), average IVP (mm Hg), pulse IVP (mm. Hg), heart rate (HR, beats/min), maximum myocardial contraction rate (+ dP/dtmax, mm Hg/sec), maximum myocardial relaxation rate (-dP/dtmax, mm Hg/sec.), a test was performed with high-frequency stimulation. To assess the reserve capacity of the myocardium, we used the Tension-Time Index (tTTI) test of the “voltage over time” index.
Results: When used as a cardioprotector of ethoxydol at a dose of 50 mg/kg, a decrease in the toxic effect of DR and an improvement in performance by 14.8% compared with the group of DR. The degree of change in contractility indicators compared with the positive control group was 48.7%. As a result of CDEPO at a dose of 50 mg/kg, there is also a positive trend in the change in myocardial contractility, but to a lesser extent than in ethoxydol. The difference in performance compared with the DR group is 8.6%. The greatest cardioprotective effect was achieved by the introduction of a combination of DR and CDEPO. The increase in contractility compared with the doxorubicin group was 23.9%. The severity of changes in contractility indicators decreased to 38.5% compared with the positive control group. This trend in the dynamics of myocardial contractility indices can be traced both in the conditions of perfusion with norcalcium and hypercalcium solutions.
Conclusion: The most pronounced cardioprotective effect on the model of doxorubicin cardiomyopathy is determined by using a combination of carbamylated darbepoetin at a dose of 50 mkg/kg with ethoxydol at a dose of 50 mg/kg.

Abstract

The article presents materials on optimization of manufacture technology for Calendulae flos galenicals with medium level of antibacterial activity. For antibacterial study of extracts, we used agar well diffusion method. In our research, we utilized six test-strain microorganisms: E. coli ATCC 25922, S. aureus ATCC 25923, P. vulgaris ATCC 4636, P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, C. albicans ATCC 885/653, and B. subtilis ATCC 6633. We have found that the maximum level of extracts’ antimicrobial activity is achieved in the range of ethanol content in the extractant from 70 to 97 % v/v. Basing on these results, we have suggested a highly effective filtration technology of extraction for manufacture of liquid extract and tincture with medium level of antimicrobial activity from Calendulae flos. Based on HPLC analysis of extracts we detected the following main groups of compounds: quercetin and caffeic acid of derivatives. We have found that the antimicrobial activity of galenicals have good correlation with dry residue concentration but not with the rutin and chlorogenic acid concentration.

Abstract

The areas of iron ore mining and processing are characterized by a high level of anthropogenic load. Among them is the Starooskolsko-Gubkinsky mining area of the Belgorod region. A certain indicator of the influence caused by mining enterprises on the adjacent territories is the state of hydrobiocenoses in surface watercourses located in the zone of their direct influence. The Oskolets River was adopted as a model; its middle reach is located in close proximity to the Lebedinsky mining and processing plant (LMPP), from where the drainage waters of the quarry are discharged. The aim of the work was to differentiate the contribution of this enterprise to the general pollution of the river using bioindication methods. According to Roshydromet (Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of Russia), analysis of the channel water in the river sections higher than the LMPP and in the Stary Oskol town of shows that among pollutants, MAC is exceeded for sulphates, ammonium, nitrites, copper, petroleum products, phosphates and iron. The more detailed analyzes we have carried out at the sampling works confirm this data in general. At the same time, the LMPP increasing the content of certain pollutants in river water dilutes them with drainage waters. The total water flow somewhat changes the river channel characteristics, locally reduces the accumulation of bottom sediments, the content of suspended and dissolved organics, which is expressly determined by the presence and ratio of indicator species of macrofauna.

Abstract

Studying of the vascular bed of mammals by means of classical methods of vessels filling is used generally in the conditions of classrooms. In this work the assessment of some methods of filling of the mammals blood channels is presented. As injection masses there were used the gelatine solution of 5%, painted with the ink by Borisevich V.B. technique and the solution consisting of Bustilat-M glue and the water in a proportion of 2:1. The conducted researches showed that the most successful, in terms of simplicity of execution, is filling of vessels with the solution consisting of Bustilat-M glue and water, as it allows with the little effort and with the smallest expenses to fill in both large and average vessels. To fill in the smaller vessels it is more preferable to use the methods with the injection solution with the ink and gelatin mass, as the contrast substance hardens practically at once that excludes the effluence of the filling mass from the damaged vessel.

Abstract

The study of the characteristics of the expansion of groups of invasion species in various types of natural and anthropogenic habitats of the south-west of the Central Russian Highland (Russia, the Belgorod region) by traditional and statistical methods has allowed to expose the features of selective colonization by plants of different ecotopes. The application of cluster analysis of correlation matrices obtained on the basis of Jaccard’s coefficients provide the differentiation of three groups of species (clusters) that are characteristic of steppe, forest and anthropogenic areas. In the group of plants of steppe ecotopes, the group of invasive species that have intruded into communities that form in chalk habitat areas is somewhat separate. The groups of plants colonizing the steppe habitats turned out to be the most dispersed. The paper presents the data related to the structure of invasive species in various ecotopes and the analysis of plants by categories: mono-, oligo-, polychores.

Abstract

Due to the increased world demand for soybean products, Kazakhstan farms sharply increased soybean production. At the same time, there were problems with the safety of products, the lack of special equipment for its storage due to the rather difficult weather conditions. When collected in such weather, it is impossible to wear even during the night, as this can lead to self-heating and, as a result, to a decrease in quality and losses. In addition, the newly harvested grain must ripen for 3-4 weeks. This process is characterized by the release of water and the absorption of heat. At this time, the grain must be well ventilated, otherwise it spoils from the accumulation of moisture. Finally, at high humidity and temperature, the grain may begin to germinate, which is associated with the consumption of carbohydrates, proteins, fats. Along with this, rodents and birds cause great damage. The object of the study is the process of storing soybeans in containers with active ventilation. It is proposed to use widely used containers of various capacities.
The aim of the study is to provide scientific substantiation of main parameters of the container-modular equipment for the storage of soybeans with active ventilation in conditions of farms.
To substantiate the 20, 30, 40 ton container-modular equipment for the storage of soybeans with active ventilation in farm conditions, the method of calculating the intake units is adopted. This is a classic method of selecting a pneumatic transporter with nominal parameters, as well as the least squares method using the MATLAB program, which is necessary for obtaining optimal equipment parameters.
As a result of the research, proposed container-modular soybean storage technology with active ventilation in farm conditions in counting per standard 40, 20, 10 t containers.

Abstract

As part of the task of solving the problems of food security of the population of the northern territories of Russia, an important place is occupied by the task of providing the population with biologically valuable substances for the positive transformation of the nutrition system of a modern person is quite acute. A large part of the world’s population and especially there is a strong deficiency of vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, polyunsaturated fatty acids, which leads to oncological, cardiovascular, autoimmune and other diseases. The ability to maintain a long working state of the population (which is especially important in the light of pension reform) and a healthy old age depend on the correctness of the system and diets. The foregoing has led to the search for ways to improve the quality of existing and create promising food products, improving their quality. The most important direction in improving the quality of food throughout the world is the enrichment of food to provide the population with various nutrients in order to supplement the diet by consuming these nutrients, using basic foods as agents. The paper considers the state and trends in the development of food enrichment processes, and offers promising solutions for their production.

Abstract

The paper covers some specific aspects of the planting material formation of the introduced crop of giant miscanthus in Ukraine. It was found out that in the zone of unstable moistening, the use of MaxiMarin absorbent resulted in a reliable growth of rhizome mass and more buds were formed on it. When planted with rhizome (mass is 20-30 g) and with the use of absorbent at the first planting term the mass growth of rhizome was larger at the end of vegetation as compared with the control, and depending on an absorbent kind it ranged from 78.4 g (the application of absorbent granules into the soil) to 433.6 g (combined application of absorbent granules and gel), more buds were formed on the rhizome – by 14.6-42.6 at the first planting term and by 8.4-42.5 at the second planting term as compared with the control. The increase of rhizome mass and the number of buds on it ensured the output growth of planting material – rhizomes, which depended on both the application of absorbent (granules and gel) and the mass of planted rhizomes and their planting terms. When planted with rhizome (mass is 60-90g) and with combined application of absorbent granules and gel more planting materials (large rhizomes) was received – by 2.1 times at the first planting term, - by 2.2 times at the second planting term, as compared with the control. More rhizomes - by 1.3 times - were received when planted with rhizome with 60-90 g mass than when rhizome mass was 20-30 g at both planting terms.

Abstract

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) has been widely used as a flavor enhancer in many processed foods despite its toxic effects described in many reports. There is paucity of data regarding the mechanism of MSG induced toxicity on human neuronal cells. The present study was designed to investigate the alteration in antioxidant defense system and genotoxic effects after MSG exposure on human neuroblastoma cells IMR-32. The treatment of MSG was given for 24 h and cytotoxicity study was carried out by trypan blue dye exclusion assay. Apoptosis and necrosis were observed using Propidium iodide (PI) and Hoechst double staining method. Biochemical assays like total protein, protein carbonyl, lipid peroxidation and glutathione level were analyzed along with enzymatic activity of super oxide dismutase and catalase. Genotoxicity indices were measured by comet assay and DNA fragmentation assay. Result of cytotoxicity showed dose dependent decrease in percent viability and significant increase was observed in percent of apoptosis and necrosis. Moreover, exposure of MSG significantly increased lipid peroxidation and protein carbonyl formation along with the impairment in antioxidant defense mechanism. Comet assay and DNA fragmentation assay showed genotoxic effects of MSG on IMR-32 cells in dose dependent manner. Findings of these dose reliant toxicity study of MSG suggest that MSG might be responsible for oxidative stress as well as genotoxicity in human neuronal cells IMR-32 cells and consumption of MSG essential to be controlled.
