Abstract: naphthoquinones isolated from the wood of trees of the families bignoniaceae and verbenaceae have been subjected to an interdisciplinary study since the seventies, when dr. benjamin gilbert, at the federal university of rio de janeiro, launched a program on the chemistry of natural products active against endemic diseases. in this paper we describe the synthesis of five naphthoimidazoles, derived from this program and their activity towards t. cruzi, the etiologic agent of chagas disease. we also review the influence of chemical structure on trypanocidal action of naphthoquinones and of derived heterocycles with imidazole, oxazole, phenoxazine, indole, dipyrane and cyclopentene rings. the overall analysis corroborates the tendency of trypanocidal activity in compounds with an imidazole or oxazole ring linked to a naphthopyrane structure. two naphthoimidazoles presented higher activities (14.5x and 34.8x) than the standard crystal violet. emphasis is given to the biodiversity of the brazilian flora as a starting point for the development of an autonomous and creative medicinal chemistry.

Abstract: This paper aims to identify the prevalence of frailty syndrome and its association with demographic, economic, health, psychological and functional variables in Brazilian population. The study was cross-sectional and composed of 385 elderly aged from 65 years, an average age of 73.92 years. A multivariate Poisson regression was used to check for conditions associated with frailty and to determine the prevalence (α = 0.05). The prevalence of frailty was 8.7% and pre-frailty of 50.4%. The frail and pre-frail older adults showed larger and increasing prevalence ratios for marital status, difficulty performing instrumental activities of daily living, old age, involuntary loss of feces, depression and negative affections. These results can guide the establishment of preventive measures and the development of intervention strategies aimed at minimizing the adverse effects of frailty in elderly people.

Abstract: spatial and temporal variation of the nutrient concentrations in leaves and sediment between the roots of laguncularia racemosa (l.) gaertn. f and rhizophora mangle l. was analyzed in the mangrove forest of the estuary of s?o mateus river, espírito santo, brazil. in leaves, the nutrients followed the sequence: n> ca> k> mg> s> p> fe> mn> zn> cu, and there were significant differences between species and sites studied. in general, the levels of k were higher in the dry season compared to the rainy season for both species analyzed while ca and cu showed higher concentrations in the rainy season for laguncularia racemosa. in the sediment, the nutrients followed the sequence: mg> ca> fe> k> mn> p> zn> cu, in general, with lower concentrations at the site where the sediment was sandier. we observed a significant variation of nutrient concentrations in the sediment between the periods analyzed, but the seasonal pattern was not clear for all nutrients. nutrient concentration profile found in leaves of both plant species was not correlated with concentrations found in the respective sediments. the concentration factor was less than 1.0 for fe and between 1.0 and 3.7 for mn, zn and cu. these results provide physiological evidences about the relevance of these tree species for the role of mangroves as biogeochemical barriers to the transit of heavy metals.

Abstract: In recent decades, there have been frequent occurrences of the cyanobacterium Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii in northeastern Brazil. Little is known regarding the response of straight and coiled morphotypes to environmental conditions such as light intensity and water temperature. Samples were collected at the Mundaú reservoir (PE, Brazil) at six sampling depths in the dry and rainy season. Both morphotypes exhibited seasonal and vertical differences in densities. The reservoir was stratified in the dry season, with a predominance of the straight morphotype. The coiled morphotype exhibited greater densities in the lower strata and prove to be more susceptible to light. There was evident thermal de-stratification in the rainy season, with a predominance of the coiled morphotype in the surface layers. Thermal de-stratification favors an increase in both morphotypes by providing adequate conditions for growth, such as low light intensity and milder temperatures, which are characteristic of the winter season in the northeastern Brazil.

Abstract: the agrobio biofertilizer is prepared from fresh cattle manure, water, molasses and minerals in open containers. this product has been widely used by organic and conventional farmers of the rio de janeiro state to control several plant pathogens. this research aimed to elucidate and quantify some of the aspects related to the beneficial effect of agrobio on bell pepper (capsicum annuum l.) transplants under greenhouse conditions. two cultivars, 'cascadura ikeda' and 'cascadura itaipu' were used. four agrobio treatments, all diluted 5% (v/v) in distilled water were used. they consisted of: (a) raw; (b) autoclaved (120oc/20 min); (c) filtered in millipore (0,22 μ diameter) and (d) the fraction retained on the millipore. they were applied as foliage sprays or directly on the substrate. as control treatments, oxytetracicline + streptomycin sulphate (0.8 g l-1), copper oxichloride (2.4 g l-1) and water were used. raw of filtered agrobio, as a foliage spray, resulted in better control of the disease and higher growth of the transplants, compared to autoclaved and fraction retained of the agrobio and substrate sprays. all agrobio treatments resulted in a less satisfactory disease control when compared to the commercial products, copper oxichloride and oxitetracicline + streptomycin sulphate, but more, effective than water. agrobio stimulated the vegetative growth of the transplants, reduced the incidence of bacterial spot, increased the leaf area and promoted a better retention of infected leaves and the bacillus spp. population.

Abstract: Acetylcholinesterase inhibition, antioxidant and cytotoxic activities of Hedychium gardnerianum leaf essential oils from S. Miguel Island were determined. All the oils inhibited acetylcholinesterase, with IC50 values of approximately 1 mg/mL, showing no statistical differences between collection sites. Three oils presented mixed inhibition, whilst one was almost truly competitive. This activity can be attributed to the presence of sesquiterpenes, which constituted more than 60% of the composition of the oils. Regarding the antioxidant activity as measured by the DPPH method, all the oils presented activities similar to reference compounds, although with statistical differences between collection sites. Cytotoxicity measured using Artemia salina classified these oils as moderately toxic, with LC50 values ranging from 300 to 500 μg/mL. These results indicate a possible application of these oils in aromatherapy as coadjuvants in the treatment of cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer, since they may contribute to increase acetylcholine in cholinergic neurons and simultaneously fight deleterious oxidations responsible by neurological degeneration.
