Abstract: chitosan, poly[β-(1-4)-linked-2-amino-2-deoxy-d-glucose], is the n-deacetylated product of chitin which is a major component of arthropod and crustacean shells such as lobsters, crabs, shrimps, and cuttlefishes. in addition, chitosan has many significant biological and chemical properties such as biodegradability, biocompatibility and bioactivity as well as polycationic properties. thus, it has been widely used in many industrial and biomedical applications including wastewater treatment, chromatographic support, carriers for controlled drug delivery and enzyme immobilization. this review is an insight into the exploitation of utilization of chitosan based-supports in different geometrical configurations on the immobilization of enzymes by different protocols for further application in biotransformation reactions.

Abstract: the aim of this study was to verify the influence of a six-month detraining program on shoulders flexibility, after a period of specific training by means of a neuroprioceptive facilitation technique named as scientific stretching for sport (3s). this research consists of a case report of a 62 year-old subject. first of all, the subject attended a 2-month period of flexibility training, by means of 3s technique. after that, the subject stayed away from the training for a period of six months. the flexibility was measured by goniometer, both at baseline (beginning of the detraining period) and six months after. the results showed decrease in flexibility on all the movements, except for right shoulder extension and medial rotation. a variety of putative mechanisms may explain the flexibility decrement with detraining, such as a reduction in conjuntive extensibility.

We investigated the cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk of the elderly in a city in northeastern Brazil, and the correlation of this risk with vitamin D and PTH status. We studied 359 elderly, both genders, from Piauí-Teresina-Brazil. Variables investigated: body mass index, waist circumference, systolic and diastolic blood pressure. A subsample (n = 100) was investigated for biochemical analyses: PTH and 25(OH)-vitamin D levels; total, HDL and LDL-cholesterol; and fasting glucose. High blood pressure, abdominal obesity, sedentarism, high total cholesterol, high triacylglycerol levels, as well as low vitamin D levels, were, among the investigated variables, the most prevalent. Visceral adiposity and low vitamin D were found to be more prevalent in women than in men, whilst alcohol intake and smoking were more prevalent in men. The correlation between vitamin D, PTH and the investigated risk variables, under our study conditions, were not significant.

Computer Science , 2014, DOI: 10.1109/TC.2012.229
Abstract: A wireless sensor network can be used to collect and process environmental data, which is often of multivariate nature. This work proposes a multivariate sampling algorithm based on component analysis techniques in wireless sensor networks. To improve the sampling, the algorithm uses component analysis techniques to rank the data. Once ranked, the most representative data is retained. Simulation results show that our technique reduces the data keeping its representativeness. In addition, the energy consumption and delay to deliver the data on the network are reduced.

Abstract: Endopleura uchi is a typical Amazonian tree and its bark is popularly employed in the preparation of teas against myomas, arthritis, influenza, diarrhea and cancer. In this study, the antioxidant activity, cytotoxicity and antimicrobial activity of five different extracts of the bark, selected by their total tannin content, were assessed. The potential antioxidant activity of the extracts was determined by 2.2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging assay and the values found were very similar among the extracts and to the standards antioxidants used in the tests. Cytotoxicity analysis in mammalian cells indicated that all the tested extracts exhibited IC 50 values higher than the highest concentration used, showing that they do not present a risk when consumed under these conditions. Extract tested against five bacterial strains and one yeast strain did not show satisfactory growth inhibitory activity, and even the extracts that showed some antimicrobial activity were not effective at any dilution to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration. The results may serve as a reference for subsequent works, since such reference values described in the literature for the bark of E. uchi.

Abstract: chrysanthemum (dendranthema grandiflora, tzevelev.) is one of the most important flowers traded both in brazil and in the world. in spite of that, chrysanthemum irrigation management in brazil is characterized by empiricism, therefore deeper studies related to the plant water use are needed. this work aimed to study the effects of irrigation depths on chrysanthemum grown in protected cultivation. the experiment was conducted from august 6 to the october 27 of 2003, in guaramiranga, ceará state, brazil, under a 9 x 30 m protected cultivation structure. the experimental design was completely randomized blocks, with four treatments (irrigation depths corresponding to 50; 75; 100, and 125% of the evaporation of the class "a" evaporation pan, eca), and four replications. the crop cycle lasted for 82 days and the total water amounts applied were: 192.2; 246.4; 300.9, and 355.4 mm for the 50, 75, 100 and 125% of eca treatments, respectively. no significant differences were found in the number of stems per pack, in packages per m2, and even in productivity (table 1). among treatments, the number of stems per package varied from 21 (75, 100 e 125% eca) to 22 (50% eca), the number of packages per m2 from 3,63 (100% eca) to 4,28 (75% eca), and the productivity from 3,94 (125% eca) to 4,36 kg m-2 (75% eca). as the amount of water used increased, the efficiency of water use decreased. irrigation using the water amount corresponding to 125% of eca presented the lowest (significant) water use efficiency (0,0107 pacotes m-2 mm-1), while treatments with irrigation corresponding to 50 and 75% of eca were the most efficient ones (0,0210 e 0,0174 packages m-2 mm-1, respectively).
