Randomly auditing research labs could be an affordable way to improve research quality: A simulation study.

The "publish or perish" incentive drives many researchers to increase the quantity of their papers at the cost of quality. Lowering quality increases the number of false positive errors which is a key cause of the reproducibility crisis. We adapted a previously published simulation of the research world where labs that produce many papers are more likely to have "child" labs that inherit their characteristics. This selection creates a competitive spiral that favours quantity over quality. To try to halt the...

A biophysical insight into the formation of aggregates upon trifluoroethanol induced structural and conformational changes in garlic cystatin.

Intrinsic and extrinsic factors are responsible for the transition of soluble proteins into aggregated form. Trifluoroethanol is among such potent extrinsic factor which facilitates the formation of aggregated structure. It disrupts the interactive forces and destabilizes the native structure of the protein. The present study investigates the effect of trifluoroethanol (TFE) on garlic cystatin. Garlic cystatin was incubated with increasing concentration of TFE (0-90% v/v) for 4 h. Incubation of GPC with T...

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) fed to dairy cows does not modify the cheese-making properties of milk but affects the color, texture, and flavor of ripened cheese.

Garlic and garlic components have recently been proposed as ruminal activity modulators to reduce the enteric methane emissions of ruminants, but little is known of their influence on milk coagulation properties, nutrient recovery, cheese yield, and sensorial and rheological characteristics of milk and cheese. The present study assessed the effects of garlic and diallyl sulfide supplements on dry matter intake (DMI), productive performance, milk coagulation properties, cheese yield, milk and cheese sensory ...

Anti-Cancer Potential of Homemade Fresh Garlic Extract Is Related to Increased Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress.

The use of garlic and garlic-based extracts has been linked to decreased incidence of cancer in epidemiological studies. Here we examine the molecular and cellular activities of a simple homemade ethanol-based garlic extract (GE). We show that GE inhibits growth of several different cancer cells in vitro, as well as cancer growth in vivo in a syngeneic orthotopic breast cancer model. Multiple myeloma cells were found to be especially sensitive to GE. The GE was fractionated using solid-phase extractions, an...

Isolation and identification of three γ-glutamyl tripeptides and their putative production mechanism in aged garlic extract.

We analyzed aged garlic extract (AGE) to understand its complex sulfur chemistry using post-column high-performance liquid chromatography with an iodoplatinate reagent and liquid chromatography high resolution mass spectrometry (LC-MS). We observed unidentified peaks of putative sulfur compounds. Three compounds were isolated and identified as γ-glutamyl-γ-glutamyl-S-methylcysteine, γ-glutamyl-γ- glutamyl-S-allylcysteine (GGSAC) and γ-glutamyl-γ-glutamyl-S-1-propenyl- cysteine (GGS1PC) by nuclear magn...

Garlic (Allium sativum) increases SIRT1 and SIRT2 gene expressions in the kidney and liver tissues of STZ- and STZ+niacinamide-induced diabetic rats.

Diabetic nephropathy and liver damage are important complications of diabetes mellitus (DM). Various factors, such as sirtuins (silent information regulators or SIRTs) are associated with these complications. Sirtuins are a family of NAD+-dependent proteins, and seven types of these can be found in mammalians. In this study, we evaluated the effects of aqueous garlic extract (G) on the expressions of SIRT1 and SIRT2 genes in the kidney and liver tissues of rats with types 1 and 2 diabetes.


Measurements of the dose equivalent at different distances from the isocenter of the proton therapy center at iThemba LABS were previously performed with a tissue-equivalent proportional counter (TEPC). These measurements showed that the scattered radiation levels were one or two orders of magnitude higher in comparison to other passive scattering delivery systems. In order to reduce these radiation levels, additional shielding was installed shortly after the measurements were done. Therefore, the aim of th...

Protective effect of methylallyl sulfone in the development of cigarette smoke extract-induced apoptosis in rats and HFL-1 cells.

Although the organosulfur compounds from garlic have shown diverse pharmacological activities, the prototype drug was almost undetectable in vivo. As known, methylallyl sulfone (AMSO2) is the main metabolite of some active organosulfur compounds derived from garlic. The purpose of this article was to study the protective effect of AMSO2 on cigarette smoke extract (CSE) induced cell apoptosis in lungs in vivo and in vitro. The male rats were injected intraperitoneally with 900 μL of 100% CSE 3 times for t...

Sexual Harassment: Health Care, It Is #YouToo.

There's no question that sexual harassment-and worse-is common at the country's hospitals, clinics, research labs, and doctor's offices. Health care's gender imbalances create situations that are ripe for abuse: Women make up the majority of the workforce in health care but men still dominate positions of authority.

Garlic (Allium sativum) exhibits a cardioprotective effect in experimental chronic renal failure rat model by reducing oxidative stress and controlling cardiac Na/K-ATPase activity and Ca levels.

Gentamicin (GNT)-induced nephrotoxicity culminates into renal failure with a possible cardiovascular impact. Garlic extract (GE) is a cardiovascular protectant with limited mechanistic data. Therefore, we assessed the disturbance in specific cardiac parameters and the potential protective effect of GE supplementation against them in a rat model of GNT-induced chronic renal failure (CRF). Adult male rats (n = 24) were randomly assigned into four groups (n = 6 each): normal controls (CON), garlic extr...

Is aldehyde dehydrogenase inhibited by sulfur compounds? In vitro and in vivo studies.

Aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) catalyzes the critical step of ethanol metabolism, i.e. transformation of toxic acetaldehyde to acetic acid. It is a redox sensitive protein with the key Cys in its active site. Recently, it has been documented that activity of some proteins can be modified by sulfur-containing molecules called reactive sulfur species leading to the formation of hydro- persulfides. The aim of the present study was to examine whether ALDH activity can be modified in this way. Studies were perfor...

An Application-Directed, Versatile DNA FISH Platform for Research and Diagnostics.

DNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (DNA FISH) has emerged as a powerful microscopy technique that allows a unique view into the composition and arrangement of the genetic material in its natural context-be it the cell nucleus in interphase, or chromosomes in metaphase spreads. The core principle of DNA FISH is the ability of fluorescently labeled DNA probes (either double- or single-stranded DNA fragments) to bind to their complementary sequences in situ in cells or tissues, revealing the location of th...

Lactic Acid Bacteria may Impact Intestinal Barrier Function by Modulating Goblet Cells.

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are recognized to promote gastrointestinal health by mechanisms that are not fully understood. LABs might modulate the mucus and thereby enhance intestinal barrier function. Herein, we investigated effects of different LAB strains and species on goblet cell genes involved in mucus synthesis.
