Composition and leishmanicidal activity of the essential oil of Vernonia polyanthes Less (Asteraceae)
(Natural Product Research, 2017-12-17) [Artigo]
The composition of the essential oil (EO) from leaves of Vernonia polyanthes and the evaluation of its leishmanicidal potential are reported here for the first time. The oil obtained by hydrodistillation was analysed by ...
Quality evaluation of intact açaí and juçara fruit by means of near infrared spectroscopy
(Postharvest Biology and Technology, 2016-02-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to report the robustness of partial least squares regression (PLSR) models developed using FT-NIR reflectance spectra obtained from intact açaí and juçara fruit. Mature fruit were collected ...
Chemical, structural, and ultrastructural analysis of waste from the carrageenan and sugar-bioethanol processes for future bioenergy generation
(Biomass and Bioenergy, 2017-12-01) [Artigo]
Macroalgae and sugarcane biorefineries are designed to generate bioproducts for commercial use. Due to the high carbohydrate content of Kappaphycus alvarezii and sugarcane bagasse (SCB), biorefineries are aimed at generating ...

Cardiovascular effects of noradrenaline microinjected into the insular cortex of unanesthetized rats
(Autonomic Neuroscience-basic & Clinical, 2011-02-24) [Artigo]
The insular cortex (IC) has been reported to be involved in central cardiovascular control. In the present study, we investigated the cardiovascular responses evoked by microinjection of noradrenaline into the IC as well ...
Both alpha(1)- and beta(1)-adrenoceptors in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis are involved in the expression of conditioned contextual fear
(British Journal of Pharmacology, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND and PURPOSE The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) is a limbic structure that is involved in the expression of conditioned contextual fear. Among the numerous neural inputs to the BNST, noradrenergic ...
In vivo CYP2E1 phenotyping as a new potential biomarker of occupational and experimental exposure to benzene
(Toxicology Letters, 2010-01-15) [Artigo]
Assessing CYP2E1 phenotype in vivo may be important to predict individual susceptibility to those chemicals, including benzene, which are metabolically activated by this isoenzyme. Chlorzoxazone (CHZ), a specific CYP2E1 ...
Influence of N-Hexane Inhalation on the Enantioselective Pharmacokinetics and Metabolism of Verapamil in Rats
(Chirality, 2010-01-01) [Artigo]
Verapamil (VER) is commercialized as a racemic mixture of the (+)-(R)-VER and (-)-(S)-VER enantiomers. VER is biotransformed into norverapamil (NOR) and other metabolites through CYP-dependent pathways. N-hexane is a solvent ...
Organophosphorus-induced delayed neuropathy: A simple and efficient therapeutic strategy
(Toxicology Letters, 2010-02-01) [Artigo]
Organophosphorus (OP) used as pesticides and hydraulic fluids can produce acute poisoning known as OP-induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN), whose effects take long time to recover. Thus a secure therapeutic strategy to prevent ...
Lateral septal area alpha(1)-and alpha(2)-adrenoceptors differently modulate baroreflex activity in unanaesthetized rats
(Experimental Physiology, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
The lateral septal area (LSA) is a limbic structure involved in autonomic, neuroendocrine and behavioural responses. An inhibitory influence of the LSA on baroreflex activity has been reported; however, the local ...
