In this study, the essential oils extracted from the peels of Citrus aurantifolia, Citrus limon and Citrus sinensis were chemically characterized and quantified. These essential oils and their standards limonene, citral and limonene + citral were evaluated (at concentrations ranging from 500 to 3.91 mL·mL-1) regarding their anti-trypanosome, antifungal and antibacterial activities. The chemical identification and quantification (by GC/FID and GC/MS) displayed the limonene as the major component of the three essential oils. It did not verified anti-trypanosome activity for all treatments. Regarding antimicrobial activity, the results were satisfactory against Gram-negative bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria. monocytogenes and Salmonella cholerasuis) and funghi

Candida albicans: genotyping methods and clade related phenotypic characteristics
Lyon, Juliana P.;Moraes, Karen C.M.;Moreira, Leonardo M.;Aimbire, Flávio;Resende, Maria Aparecida de;
Brazilian Journal of Microbiology , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-83822010000400003
Abstract: several molecular methods, such as southern blotting hybridization, multilocus sequence typing, and dna microsatellite analysis, have been employed to genotype candida albicans. the genotype analysis allows to group strains in clades, that is, a group composed of one ancestor and its descendants. these genotype studies demonstrate that clades distribution is influenced by geographic area as well as that antifungal resistance is associated with particular clades. these findings suggested that c. albicans reproduces mainly in a clonal manner, with certain degree of dna microevolution. additionally, virulence factors and site of isolation have also been associated with clade specificity. the present article is a brief review about the methods used for candida genotyping and the correlated clade systems established. special emphasis is given to ca3 hybridization, mlst, and microsatellites. the present work is also focused on the phenotypic and physiological traits associated with candida clades.

Abstract: studies show that apiaceae may provide concentrated vital resources for predator insects, stimulating their abundance, diversity and persistence in agricultural systems, thereby increasing their efficiency as biological control agents. among the predatory insects, coccinellidae (coleoptera) on many different species both as larvae and adults, complementing their diet with pollen and/or nectar. this study aimed to determine the diversity and relative abundance of coccinellidae species visiting plants of anethum graveolens (dill), coriandrum sativum (coriander) and foeniculum vulgare (sweet fennel) (all apiaceae), particularly in their blooming seasons, and to evaluate the potential of these aromatic species for providing the resources for survivorship and reproduction of coccinelids. coccinellids were collected by removal of samplings from september to october, 2007. besides one unidentified species of chilocorinae, five species of coccinellinae were collected: coleomegilla maculata degeer, coleomegilla quadrifasciata (sch?nherr), cycloneda sanguinea (l.), eriopis connexa (germar) and hippodamia convergens guérin-meneville. dill provided a significant increase in the abundance of coccinellids as compared to coriander and sweet fennel. these aromatic species were used by coccinellids as survival and reproduction sites, providing food resources (pollen and/or prey), shelter for larvae, pupae and adults, and mating and oviposition sites as well.

Abstract: Forty Wistar rats (30 treated, 10 controls) were included. Liver injury was induced by dual exposure to CCl4 and ethanol for 4, 8 and 15 weeks. Liver echogenicity, its correlation to the right renal cortex echogenicity, measurement of portal vein diameter (PVD) and the presence of ascites were evaluated and compared to histological findings of hepatic steatosis and cirrhosis. Liver echogenicity correlated to hepatic steatosis when it was greater or equal to the right renal cortex echogenicity, with a sensitivity of 90%, specificity of 100%, positive and negative predictive values of 100% and 76.9% respectively, and accuracy of 92.5%. Findings of heterogeneous liver echogenicity and irregular surface correlated to liver cirrhosis with a sensitivity of 70.6%, specificity of 100%, positive and negative predictive values of 100% and 82.1% respectively, and accuracy of 87.5%. PVD was significantly increased in both steatotic and cirrhotic rats; however, the later had greater diameters. PVD cut-off point separating steatosis from cirrhosis was 2.1 mm (sensitivity of 100% and specificity of 90.5%). One third of cirrhotic rats presented with ascites.The use of ultrasound imaging in the follow-up of murine diffuse liver disease models is feasible and efficient, especially when the studied parameters are used in combination. The potential implication of this study is to provide a non-invasive method that allows follow-up studies of fatty liver disease and cirrhosis of individual rats for pre-clinical drug or cell based therapies.Domestic dogs and cats are very well known to develop chronic hepatic diseases. Hepatic lipidosis (HL) or fatty liver is an important liver disease in cats. It is characterized by excess fat accumulation in the liver and seems to have no age, breed, or gender predilection [1,2]. HL is more common in obese or previously obese cats which have undergone brief periods of anorexia or food deprivation [3]. Obesity in cats has been described as the most prev

Abstract: aiming at improving the level of induction of resistance in cocoa, various nutrients, acibenzolar-s-methyl (asm) and their combination were tested on cocoa seedlings, clone sic-23, 30 days before inoculation. the commercial products supa-potássio? (potassium silicate), hortifós? pk (potassium phosphite) and broadacre? mn (manganese sulfate) were sprayed at doses of 2.5, 5.0 ml and 10.0 ml per liter of water, combined or not, with asm? (0.2 g/l). the experiment was set in a randomized block design, in a factorial scheme, with four replicates of twelve plants each. disease incidence was assessed 60 days after inoculation. only asm promoted significant control of the disease. nutrients alone had no effect on disease incidence. on the other hand, the protective effect of asm disappeared when this product was mixed to supa-potássio at 5 or 10 ml/l.

Abstract: The 2009 pandemic influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus emerged and caused considerable morbidity and mortality in the third world, especially in Brazil. Although circulating strains of A(H1N1)pdm09 are A/California/04/2009-like (CA-04-like) viruses, various studies have suggested that some mutations in the viral hemagglutinin (HA) may be associated with enhanced severity and fatality. This phenomenon is particularly challenging for immunocompromised individuals, such as those who have undergone bone marrow transplant (BMT), because they are more likely to display worse clinical outcomes to influenza infection than non-immunocompromised individuals. We studied the clinical and viral aspects of post-BMT patients with confirmed A(H1N1)pdm09 diagnosis in the largest cancer hospital in Brazil. We found a viral strain with K-15E, P83S and Q293H polymorphisms in the HA, which is presumably more virulent, in these individuals. Despite that, these patients showed only mild symptoms of infection. Our findings complement the discovery of mild cases of infection with the A(H1N1)pdm09 virus with the K-15E, P83S and Q293H mutations in Brazil and oppose other studies that have linked these changes with increased disease severity. These results could be important for a better comprehension of the impact of the pandemic influenza in the context of BMT.
