- ... Testing for effects of pesticides on nontarget organisms is an integral part of ecological risk assessment. In the present study, the acute toxicity of sulfoxaflor to earthworms was evaluated using an artificial soil toxicity test, and sublethal effects were assessed through oxidative stress and metabolomics. Sulfoxaflor is a supertoxic pollutant to earthworms that easily bioaccumulates in earthwo ...

- ... In previous studies, A-type procyanidin oligomers isolated from Cinnamomum tamala were proved to possess antidiabetic effect and protect pancreatic Î²-cells in vivo. The aim of this study was to unveil the mechanisms of protecting pancreatic Î²-cells from palmitic acid-induced apoptosis by cinnamtannin D-1 (CD1), one of the main A-type procyanidin oligomers in C. tamala. CD1 was discovered to dose ...
