Uranium exposure of human dopaminergic cells results in low cytotoxicity, accumulation within sub-cytoplasmic regions, and down regulation of MAO-B.

Natural uranium is an ubiquitous element present in the environment and human exposure to low levels of uranium is unavoidable. Although the main target of acute uranium toxicity is the kidney, some concerns have been recently raised about neurological effects of chronic exposure to low levels of uranium. Only very few studies have addressed the molecular mechanisms of uranium neurotoxicity, indicating that the cholinergic and dopaminergic systems could be altered. The main objective of this study was to in...

Interaction of uranium(VI) with α-amylase and its implication for the enzyme activity.

Due to its chemo- and radiotoxicity, the incorporation of uranium into human body via ingestion potentially poses a serious health risk. When ingested, the gastrointestinal fluids are the primary media to interact with uranium, eventually influencing and even determining its biochemical behavior in the gastrointestinal tract and thereafter. The chemical interactions between uranium and the components of gastrointestinal fluids are, however, poorly understood to date. In this study, the complexation of urani...

Comparison of solvent extraction and extraction chromatography resin techniques for uranium isotopic characterization in high-level radioactive waste and barrier materials.

The development of Deep Geological Repositories (DGP) to the storage of high-level radioactive waste (HLRW) is mainly focused in systems of multiple barriers based on the use of clays, and particularly bentonites, as natural and engineered barriers in nuclear waste isolation due to their remarkable properties. Due to the fact that uranium is the major component of HLRW, it is required to go in depth in the analysis of the chemistry of the reaction of this element within bentonites. The determination of uran...

Structural features of uranium-protein complexes.

Uranium toxicity depends on its chemical properties rather than on its radioactivity and involves its interaction with macromolecules. Here, a systematic survey of the structural features of the uranyl sites observed in protein crystal structures deposited in the Protein Data Bank is reported. Beside the two uranyl oxygens, which occupy the axial positions, uranium tends to be coordinated by five other oxygen atoms, which occupy the equatorial vertices of a pentagonal bipyramid. Even if one or more of these...
