Chlorpyrifos induces hypertension in rats

  This study using a non-invasive measurement with a working range from 0–300 mm Hg and a silent built-in air pump that ensured automated cuff inflation/deflation at a constant rate blood pressure (BP) demonstrated an initially elevated BP in all treatment groups for several hours after exposure. This parameter was monitored for 3 and 14 days. BP was elevated at 3- and 14 –day exposure, but not...

Effect of cadmium ions on amyloid beta peptide 1-42 channel activity

  Amyloid b-peptide (Ab) is a natural peptide of about 39-42 amino acids, which can aggregate and accumulate into senile plaques, one of the main pathological features in Alzheimer's disease (AD).There is extensive evidence that neurodegenerative pathologies, such as AD, are associated with protein misfolding and environmental factors, such as heavy metals, that are known to pollute the...

Physicochemical characteristics of rainwater quality of Warri axis of Delta state in western Niger Delta region of Nigeria

  Physicochemical characteristics in rainwater samples collected at the peak of rainy seasons of August 2008 and 2009 from fifteen locations of Warri axis of Delta area in Western part of Niger Delta region of Nigeria were investigated for two consecutive years. The temperature ranged from 28.21- 29.38°C with mean value of 28.79 ± 0.27°C - 29.68°C with mean value of 29.20...
