Genotoxic effects of Cd(+2), Cr(+6), and Cu(+2) on the gill and liver of the Argentinean Silverside (Odontesthes bonariensis) were studied using the comet assay and in relation with the metal tissue accumulation. Fish were exposed to three waterborne concentrations of each metal for 2 and 16 days. Genotoxicity was assessed by the single cell gel el...
Article
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus through different presynaptic and postsynaptic mechanisms that include the modulation of the GABAergic neurotransmission. Inhibitory synapses on hippocampal pyramidal neurons are known to possess the molecular machinery for retrograde NO-signaling, but the modulation of GABAARs...
Article
Background and purpose: NO is a highly diffusible and reactive gas produced in the nervous system, which acts as a neuronal signal mediating physiological or pathological mechanisms. NO can modulate the activity of neurotransmitter receptors and ion channels, including NMDA and GABA(A) receptors. In the present work, we examined whether GABA(C) re...

The presence of cyanobacterial toxins in freshwater constitutes an increasing public health concern, especially affecting developing countries where the high cost of available methods makes monitoring programs difficult. The phosphatase inhibition assay (PPIAs) is a sensitive method with low instrument requirements that allows the quantification of...
Article
Full-text available
The receptor binding domain (RBD) of the Spike protein from SARS-CoV-2 is a promising candidate to develop effective COVID-19 vaccines since it can induce potent neutralizing antibodies. We have previously reported the highly efficient production of RBD in Pichia pastoris , which is structurally similar to the same protein produced in mammalian HEK...

This paper reports on the development of a novel CMOS device employing lead-sensing bacteria to assay lead in drinking water. The objective of the PlomBOX project is to develop a low-cost sensor ({\pounds}10) which can expedite access to on-demand assay methods and thus help mitigate lead intake through contaminated drinking water. The project foll...

We covalently coupled the RBD domain of SARS-CoV-2 produced in Pichia pastoris to a decameric carrier to produce a potent immunogen
Preprint
Since the discovery of SARS-CoV-2, several antigens have been proposed to be part of COVID-19 vaccines. The receptor binding domain (RBD) of Spike protein is one of the promising candidates to develop effective vaccines since it can induce potent neutralizing antibodies. We previously reported the production of RBD in Pichia pastoris and showed it...

The yeast Pichia pastoris is a cost-effective and easily scalable system for recombinant protein production. In this work we compared the conformation of the receptor binding domain (RBD) from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) Spike protein expressed in P. pastoris and in the well established HEK-293T mammalian cell syste...

In this work we compared the conformation of the receptor binding domain (RBD) from SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein expressed in P. pastoris and in the well established HEK-293T mammalian cell system. RBD obtained from both yeast and mammalian cell...

This protocol has been optimized for the recombinant expression of a codon-optimized Bst-LF polymerase. The goal of this protocol was to eliminate the use of large volumes for dyalisis through the use of concentrators for buffer exchange before storage conditions. The plasmid encoding the codon-optimized Bst-LF enzyme used here can be found on recl...
Article
Poultry manure (PM) can contain ammonium and ammonia nitrogen, which may inhibit the anaerobic process. The aim of this work was to evaluate the performance of anaerobic digestion of PM co-digested with fruit and vegetable waste. Two semi-continuous bench scale (19L) stirred tank reactors were used. The operating conditions were: 34.5 °C, 2 gVS/L.d...

The diversity and flexibility of life offers a wide variety of molecules and systems useful for biosensing. A biosensor device should be robust, specific and reliable. Inorganic arsenic is a highly toxic water contaminant with worldwide distribution that poses a threat to public health. With the goal of developing an arsenic biosensor, we designed...
Article
GABAA receptors (GABAARs) are ligand-gated ion channels that mediate inhibitory neurotransmission in the central nervous system (CNS). They are members of the Cys-loop receptor family and display marked structural and functional heterogeneity. Many GABAARs receptor subtypes are allosterically modulated by benzodiazepines (BDZs), which are drugs ext...
Article
ROS are normally involved in cell oxidative stress but also play a role as cellular messengers in redox signaling, for example modulating the activity of neurotransmitter receptors and ion channels. However, the direct actions of ROS on GABAA receptors were not previously demonstrated. In the present work, we studied the effects of ROS on GABAA ρ1...
