In the silkworm, as is the case in most other insects, trehalose is the principal circulating form of the saccharidic cellular food. The hemolymph contains an enzyme, trehalase, which is normally inhibited. The inhibation is only suppressed during the periods of molting, causing a decrease of the trahalose concentration and an increase of the amount of free glucose. The muscles and most other tissues, such as the digestive tract, are able to use blood trehalose, thanks to an intracellular trehalase. The epidermis and the silk-glands are devoid of trehalase : they use the free glucose liberated by the hydrolysis of the hemolymph trehalose during the periods of molting and spinning. The problem of the origin of the trehalose is discussed, in the light of recent experiments, in which the incorporation of radioactivity from labelled pyruvate and glucose-1-phosphate into fat-body glycogen and hemolymph trehalose has been followed. The chitin of the cuticle is synthesized at every molting process, partly at the expense of the glucose liberated by the hydrolysis of the trehalose in the hemolymph. On the other hand, the old cuticle is destroyed by the proteolytic and chitinolytic enzymes of the exuvial fluid. The hydrolytic products, especially N-acetylglucosamine, are resorbed by the epidermis and can be used for the biosynthesis of the chitin of the new cuticle. [less ▲]

Introduction Complex oligosaccharides from human milk (HMO) promote growth of bifidobacteria such as Bifidobacterium bifidum [1]. Whey, a by-product of dairy-industry, contents complex oligosaccharides (BMO) similar to HMO, which are mainly represented in colostrum by 3’-sialyllactose (3’SL) [2]. Bifidobacterium crudilactis, a species of bovine origin, encodes for β galactosidases and α-glucosidases and could therefore be able to metabolise those BMO [3; 4; 5]. In addition, fermentation products from bifidobacteria can produce antivirulent activity against intestinal pathogenic bacteria [6; 7]. This study focused on capacity of bifidobacteria to metabolise BMO, more particularly 3’SL, and on potential antivirulent effect of cell-free spent media (CFSM) against virulence gene expression of pathogenic bacteria. Material and methods B. bifidum BBA1 and B. crudilactis FR/62/B/3 isolated respectively from breastfed children feces and from cow raw milk cheese were grown on media supplemented with BMO or 3’SL, as sole source of carbon. The CFSM were harvested after centrifugation of cells culture, freeze-dried and concentrated 10 fold. Next, their effects were tested against virulence gene expression using ler and hilA promoter activity of luminescent constructs of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 ATCC 43888 and Salmonella Typhimurium SA 941256, respectively. The effect was confirmed on wild type strains of E. coli O157:H7 ATCC 43890 and S. Typhimurium ATCC 14028 using RT-qPCR. Results Both strains were able to grow in presence of whey or 3’SL, but B. crudilactis showed the best growth compared to B. bifidum. The highest cell concentrations were observed with media containing whey (8.9 ± 0.6 log cfu/ml and 8.1 ± 0.3 log cfu/ml, respectively). CFSM from fermented media supplemented with 3’SL resulted in under-expression of hilA and ler genes for the luminescent constructs and in under-expression of ler (ratios of -15.4 and -8.1) and qseA (ratios of -2.1 and -3.1) genes for the wild type strain of E. coli O157:H7. No effect was observed for the wild type strain of S. Typhimurium. Discussion B. crudilactis presented the best growth potential probably because its genome encodes the enzymatic machinery to use BMO (β galactosidases and α-glucosidases) [3; 4; 5]. The positive effect of media supplemented with milk products on growth of probiotics has been demonstrated previously [8]. CFSM obtained from media supplemented with 3’SL down-regulate several virulence genes of E. coli O157:H7 and potentially S. Typhimurium. This effect has been observed previously with CFSM obtained from fermentation of lactic acid bacteria or bifidobacteria, by production of antivirulent metabolites [2; 3]. BMO combined with some bifidobacteria strains of bovine or human origin could therefore be an interesting synbiotic to maintain or restore the intestinal health of young children. These effects observed in vitro will be further investigated regarding the exact nature of the active molecules. References 1. Garrido D. et al. (2013). Microbiology 159: 649-664. 2.

Introduction - The genus Echinacea (Asteraceae) comprises about 10 species originally distributed in North America. Three species are very well known as they are used worldwide as medicinal plants: Echinacea purpurea, E. pallida, E. angustifolia.Objective - To discriminate between these three Echinacea species and E. simulata by (1)H NMR-based metabolomics.Methodology - (1)H NMR and multivariate analysis techniques were applied to diverse Echinacea plants including roots and aerial parts, authentic plants, commercial plants and commercial dry extracts.Results - Using the (1)H NMR metabolomics, it was possible, without previous evaporation or separation steps, to obtain a metabolic fingerprint to distinguish between species.Conclusion - A clear distinction between the three pharmaceutical species was possible and some useful metabolites were identified.

H-1 Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry and multivariate analysis techniques were applied for the metabolic profiling of three Strychnos species: Strychnos nux-vomica (seeds, stem bark, root bark), Strychnos ignatii (seeds), and Strychnos icaja (leaves, stem bark, root bark, collar bark). The principal component analysis (PCA) of the H-1 NMR spectra showed a clear discrimination between all samples, using the three first components. The key compounds responsible for the discrimination were brucine, loganin, fatty acids.. and Strychnos icaja alkaloids such as icajine and sungucine. The method was then applied to the classification of several "false angostura" samples. These samples were, as expected, identified as S. nux-vomica by PCA, but could not be clearly discriminated as root bark or stem bark samples after further statistical analysis.

In this research a multidisciplinary approach was used to unveil the genetic, metabolic uniqueness and relationships of endemic Mascarene Aloes (Aloe macra, Aloe purpurea, Aloe tormentorii) with respect to Aloe vera. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, DNA sequencing and antioxidant profiles of these Aloes were studied. Principal component analysis following 1H NMR revealed the specificity of the Mascarene Aloes relative to Aloe vera. The superior free radical scavenging ability of A. purpurea, A. macra and A. tormentorii as compared to other Aloes was also unveiled. Phylogenetic analyses of chloroplast genes and ITS region sequences of these Mascarene Aloes were done using maximum parsimony and Bayesian analysis. Mascarene Aloes clustered within one clade separate from Aloe vera confirming their relative recent emergence in this genus. Results from this study showed that there is sufficient evidence at the metabolomic and molecular level to distinguish between Aloe ​purpurea from Mauritius and that of Reunion. © 2016 SAAB [less ▲]
