N-Acetylcysteine an Allium Plant Compound Improves High-Sucrose Diet-Induced Obesity and Related Effects
(Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
This study was designed to determine whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC, C(5)H(9)-NO(3)S), a compound from Allium species may be used as a complementary therapeutic agent, to inhibit high-sucrose induced-obesity and its effects ...
Evaluation of pyraclostrobin and acibenzolar-S-methyl on common bacterial blight of snap bean
(Semina: Ciências Agrárias, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
Assays were done under greenhouse conditions in order to evaluate the effect of pyraclostrobin (0.0375, 0.0750 and 0.150 mL.L-1) and acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) (0.025 g.L-1) in common bacterial blight on leaves of snap ...
Tobacco smoke induces ventricular remodeling associated with an increase in NADPH oxidase activity
(European Heart Journal, 2011-08-01) [Resumo]
Synthesis, characterization, and application of modified silica in the removal and preconcentration of lead ions from natural river water
(Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy, 2011-04-01) [Artigo]
This paper describes the synthesis, modification, and application of modified silica for the removal of lead ions from aqueous medium. The modification reaction provided a reduction in surface are from 737 to 399 m(2) ...
Ultraviolet-B and water stress effects on growth, gas exchange and oxidative stress in sunflower plants
(Radiation and Environmental Biophysics, 2008-07-01) [Artigo]
The effects and interaction of drought and UV-B radiation were studied in sunflower plants (Helianthus annuus L. var. Catissol-01), growing in a greenhouse under natural photoperiod conditions. The plants received approximately ...
Comparation of free radical scavenging activity between seven species of Passiflora L.
(Journal of Applied Science and Technology, 2014) [Artigo]
Antioxidant capacities of seven species of Passiflora were evaluated through comparation of the free radical DPPH scavenging activity. The studied species included cultivated and traditionally used P. edulis, P. incarnata ...
NICKEL CHLORIDE EFFECTS ON ERYTHROCYTE GENERATION OF SUPEROXIDE RADICAL
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 1990-01-01) [Artigo]
Acclimation to short-term low temperatures in two Eucalyptus globulus clones with contrasting drought resistance
(Tree Physiology, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
We tested the hypothesis that Eucalyptus globulus Labill. genotypes that are more resistant to dry environments might also exhibit higher cold tolerances than drought-sensitive plants. The effect of low temperatures was ...
Chemical composition and lipoxygenase activity in soybeans (Glycine max L. Merr.) submitted to gamma irradiation
(Radiation Physics and Chemistry, 2014-05-01) [Artigo]
Soybeans are an important food due to their functional and nutritional characteristics. However, consumption by western populations is limited by the astringent taste of soybeans and their derivatives which results from ...
Effect of Brazilian propolis on experimental hepatotoxicity in rats
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 2004-12-01) [Artigo]
Propolis (bee glue) is one of the major hive products of bees and is rich in flavonoids, which are known for their antioxidant activities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hepatoprotective effects of the ethanolic ...
