    Emerging contaminant occurrence and toxic effects on zebrafish embryos to assess the adverse effects caused by mixtures of substances in the environment
    2021 - MARTINI, GISELA de A.; MONTAGNER, CASSIANA C.; VIVEIROS, WILLIAM; QUINAGLIA, GILSON A.; FRANCA, DANIELA D.; MUNIN, NIVEA C.G.; LOPES-FERREIRA, MONICA; ROGERO, SIZUE O.; ROGERO, JOSE R.
    The contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) have been receiving global attention due to their worldwide presence in water bodies. The CECs could be originated from synthetic or natural sources, and they are not commonly monitored, although these substances are continuously reaching the aquatic environment. The main goal of this study was to determine the occurrence of some target CECs in São Paulo state surface water, once there is practically no information on the presence and concentration range of these substances at the studied sites. In addition, the present study aimed to assess adverse effects in the non-target fish embryo of Danio rerio (zebrafish) after exposure to surface water organic extract samples during 96 h using FET test. The CECs in surface water samples were determined by solid-phase extraction and liquid chromatography coupled by mass spectrometry. A 2-year study was assessed in 7 rivers and 3 reservoirs at São Paulo state, where 25 of the 30 analyzed substances were quantified, being caffeine the substance with the highest concentration range (5.5 ng L−1 to 69 μg L−1) and detected in 95% of analyzed samples, followed by bisphenol A (6.5–1300 ng L−1) and carbendazim (4.7–285 ng L−1), found in 50% and 85% of the analyzed samples, respectively. The chemical analysis and biological test were not performed in order to show a direct relationship between concentrations and observed effects on embryos; however, the combined approach can provide a better understanding of the adverse effects caused by mixtures of substances at relevant environmental concentrations. Regarding the adverse effects, it was observed that in the samples from sites with higher anthropogenic activity in the surroundings, there was also a higher mortality rate in organisms. At the Ribeirão Pires River and Sapucaí-Guaçu River, the mortality rate during the 2-year study was 21.6% and 9.3%, respectively. The morphological abnormality rates were higher at Ribeirão Grande (21.4%) and Ribeirão Pires (29.5%) Rivers. The obtained results aim to show that even in low concentrations (ng–μg L−1) the CECs can cause adverse effects on non-target species, and because of that, new chemical indicators would be important to monitor the water quality and protect the aquatic biota.

    In vitro and In vivo toxicity of Gold nanoparticles synthesized and stabilized with phytochemicals
    2020 - CAVALCANTE, A.K.; BATISTA, J.G.; MAZIERO, J.d.; FERNANDES, B.V.; VIVEIROS, W.; ROGERO, S.O.; ROGERO, J.R.; LUGAO, A.B.
    Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are among the most widely studied metal nanoparticles for biomedical applications. AuNPs can be synthesized by chemical reduction. Several methods for this type of synthesis are described in the literature, one of them is the Turkevich method, which uses sodium citrate (CITR) as a reducing agent. Other methods were developed based on the use of solvent systems during nanoparticle production. Although they are efficient production methods, they are environmentally unviable. In order to address this issue, metabolites present in various plant extracts have been explored for the preparation of different AuNPs. Green nanotechnology is the nanotechnology aspect that aims to develop protocols to generate sustainable products and production processes, in order to minimize the use of toxic compounds. In this study, the phytochemicals chosen as reducing agents and stabilizers for AuNPs synthesis were mangiferin (MGF) and resveratrol (RESV). Due to their ability to interact with biological systems, along with various applications of AuNPs, their toxicity has become one of the most important concerns. Due to the increased production and use of AuNPs, their risk of reaching different environmental compartments and becoming available increases the importance of determining toxicity in various species of biological interest, such as microcrustaceans and fish. Zebrafish is an important animal model used in the areas of developmental biology, genetics, biomedicine, nanotoxicology and is also used in ecotoxicological assays. The aim of the study is to evaluate the toxicity level of MGF (MGF-AuNPs) and RESV (RESV-AuNPs) reduced and stabilized AuNPs in vitro and in vivo by comparing them with the classical AuNPs synthesis method described by Turkvich (CITR-AuNPs). The study has two strands, one of which is to evaluate the level of nanomaterial toxicity using the zebrafish animal model as a preclinical study, and the other to evaluate the level of nanomaterial toxicity using the zebrafish animal model as a study of environmental toxicity. Cytotoxicity assay according to ISO 10993-5, Zebrafish FET TEST according to OECD 236 and Microinjection Assay in Zebrafish embryos. Green nanotechnology has proven to be a valuable tool in the synthesis of AuNPs for toxicity, not requiring the use of solvents and potentially toxic substances. The toxicity of AuNPs varied according to the assay. In the cytotoxicity assay, IC50 was obtained from CITR-AuNPs, whose IC50 was about 72%, which corresponds to the Au concentration of 74.16 µg.mL-1. In FET, RESV-AuNPs caused delays in the hatching process of zebrafish embryos, and it was the only sample that could obtain the LC50 (4.41%, corresponding to the Au concentration of 6,57 µg.mL -1). In the assay in which AuNPs were microinjected into embryos, the concentration causing toxic effect was not found in 50% of the organisms.

    CMC and PVA hydrogel containing papain nanoparticles for drug delivery
    2020 - LIMA, C.S.; VARCA, G.H.; OLIVEIRA, J.R.; NOGUEIRA, K.M.; SANTOS, F.A.; RIBEIRO, A.H.; LUGAO, A.B.; FREITAS, L.F.; ROGERO, S.O.
    Four hydrogel formulations of Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and Poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) were prepared with native papain (AP and BP) and papain nanoparticles (AN and BN) for drug delivery. The formulations were evaluated for their preliminary stability, protein distribution in the matrix and cytotoxicity. Three methods for sterilization purposes were compared: irradiation by 60Co source, electron-beam and UV light. The preliminary stability test confirmed that the system was stable since there was no precipitation or alteration of the organoleptic properties of the samples in the evaluated period. The distribution of proteins in the hydrogel was very homogeneous in all the formulations. Quantification of the enzymatic activity of papain after contact with the gel showed that native papain maintained its activity high (86% and 93% for AP and BP gels, respectively), whereas there was a considerable drop in the activity of the papain nanoparticles to 60.54% and 69.44% for AP and BP gels, respectively. Such loss of activity is attributed to processing and/or process steps. The cell viability assay showed that the polymer matrix shows no cytotoxicity, corroborating with the literature, since the material is biocompatible. Thus, it is possible to affirm that the developed system presents potential for biomedical application, either as a vehicle of papain itself or for the transport of other drugs through complexation with papain nanoparticles. However, the need for further studies of stability, controlled release capacity and biocompatibility is required.

    Species-specific in vitro and in vivo evaluation of toxicity of silver nanoparticles stabilized with gum arabic protein
    2020 - MAZIERO, JOANA S.; THIPE, VELAPHI C.; ROGERO, SIZUE O.; CAVALCANTE, ADRIANA K.; DAMASCENO, KELME C.; ORMENIO, MATHEUS B.; MARTINI, GISELA A.; BATISTA, JORGE G.S.; VIVEIROS, WILLIAM; KATTI, KAVITA K.; KARIKACHERY, ALICE R.; MOHANDOSS, DARSHAKUMAR D.; DHURVAS, RASHMI D.; NAPPINNAI, MOHANAVELU; ROGERO, JOSE R.; LUGAO, ADEMAR B.; KATTI, KATTESH V.
    Introduction: We report, herein, in vitro, and in vivo toxicity evaluation of silver nanoparticles stabilized with gum arabic protein (AgNP-GP) in Daphnia similis, Danio rerio embryos and in Sprague Dawley rats. Purpose: The objective of this investigation was to evaluate in vitro and in vivo toxicity of silver nanoparticles stabilized with gum arabic protein (AgNP-GP), in multispecies due to the recognition that toxicity evaluations beyond a single species reflect the environmental realism. In the present study, AgNP-GP was synthesized through the reduction of silver salt using the tri-alanine-phosphine peptide (commonly referred to as “Katti Peptide”) and stabilized using gum arabic protein. Methods: In vitro cytotoxicity tests were performed according to ISO 10993– 5 protocols to assess cytotoxicity index (IC50) values. Acute ecotoxicity (EC50) studies were performed using Daphnia similis, according to the ABNT NBR 15088 protocols. In vivo toxicity also included evaluation of acute embryotoxicity using Danio rerio (zebrafish) embryos following the OECD No. 236 guidelines. We also used Sprague Dawley rats to assess the toxicity of AgNP-GP in doses from 2.5 to 10.0 mg kg− 1 body weight. Results: AgNP-GP nanoparticles were characterized through UV (405 nm), core size (20± 5 nm through TEM), hydrodynamic size (70– 80 nm), Zeta (ζ) potential (- 26 mV) using DLS and Powder X ray diffraction (PXRD) and EDS. PXRD showed pattern consistent with the Ag (1 1 1) peak. EC50 in Daphnia similis was 4.40 (3.59– 5.40) μg L− 1. In the zebrafish species, LC50 was 177 μg L− 1. Oral administration of AgNP-GP in Sprague Dawley rats for a period of 28 days revealed no adverse effects in doses of up to 10.0 mg kg− 1 b.w. in both male and female animals. Conclusion: The non-toxicity of AgNP-GP in rats offers a myriad of applications of AgNP-GP in health and hygiene for use as antibiotics, antimicrobial and antifungal agents.

    Avaliação da toxicidade de nanopartículas de prata estabilizadas com goma arábica
    2019 - MAZIERO, J.S.; ROGERO, S.O.; DAMASCENO, K.C.; ORMENIO, M.B.; CAVALCANTE, A.K.; MARTINI, G.A.; BATISTA, J.G.S.; KATTI, K.V.; LUGAO, A.B.; ROGERO, J.R.
    As nanopartículas de prata (NPAg), devido a seus diversos atributos (formato variado, elevada área superficial e alto poder bactericida), vem sendo amplamente utilizadas em diversos setores da indústria. Esta utilização abrangente, tem provocado grande preocupação, quanto aos impactos e riscos potenciais que as NPAg podem causar ao meio ambiente e à saúde humana. Este trabalho teve como objetivo verificar a toxicidade de uma amostra de NPAg estabilizada com Goma Arábica e reduzida com Tri-Alanina, utilizando ensaios in vitro e in vivo. O teste in vitro de citotoxicidade, foi realizado seguindo a norma ISO 10993 - 5, em células da linhagem NCTC-L929; os ensaios in vivo de ecotoxicidade aguda, de acordo com a norma brasileira ABNT NBR 12713, utilizando como organismo teste a Daphnia similis; e embriotoxicidade aguda de acordo com o protocolo da OECD 236, utilizando como organismo teste o Danio rerio. Os resultados obtidos foram: IC50 de 2,61 mg L-1, CE50 de 6,55 μg L-1 e CL50 de 673 μg L-1. Os organismos aquáticos apresentaram maior sensibilidade às NPAg do que as células em cultura, elevando a importância de se realizar mais estudos em várias espécies de interesse biológico. Além disso, mostra-se necessário verificar o descarte apropriado dessas nanopartículas, visto que no Brasil ainda não há legislações que quantifiquem os limites permissíveis para esse descarte.

    Avaliação da toxicidade in vitro e in vivo das nanopartículas de ouro reduzidas e estabilizadas com mangiferina e resveratrol
    2019 - CAVALCANTE, A.K.; BATISTA, J.G.S.; MAZIERO, J.S.; ROGERO, S.; ROGERO, J.R.; VIVEIROS, W.; KATTI, K.; LUGAO, A.B.; ALAVARSE, R.D.
    As nanopartículas de ouro (AuNPs) com diferentes tamanhos e formas têm sido amplamente estudadas em todo o mundo. A síntese de AuNPs geralmente envolve agentes de redução e solventes que apresentam problemas relacionados à toxicidade. A fim de resolver esta questão, metabólitos presentes em diversos extratos de plantas tem sido explorados para a preparação de diferentes nanopartículas. Pesquisadores mostraram que alguns fitoquímicos, como a mangiferina (MGF) e resveratrol (RESV), além de reduzirem e estabilizarem as AuNPs, são capazes de funcionalizá-las. O aumento na produção e utilização das nanopartículas tem provocado grande preocupação quanto aos impactos e riscos potenciais que estas podem causar ao meio ambiente e à saúde humana. Desta forma, o estudo teve como objetivo avaliar o nível de toxicidade das AuNPs, reduzidas e estabilizadas com MGF e RESV in vitro e in vivo, comparando-as com o método clássico de síntese de AuNPs, descrito por Turkvich, no qual o citrato de sódio é o agente redutor e estabilizante (CITR-AuNPs). Foi realizado o ensaio de citotoxicidade de acordo com a International Standard Organization (ISO 10993-5, 2009) e o ensaio de toxicidade aguda em embriões de Zebrafish (FET TEST), de acordo com o protocolo da OECD nº 236. Zebrafish é um importante modelo animal utilizado nas áreas de biologia do desenvolvimento, genética e biomedicina e é utilizado em ensaios ecotoxicológicos. Como o zebrafish apresenta 70% de similaridade genética com humanos, assim como similaridades fisiológicas e anatômicas, este modelo pode ser usado para prever efeitos de toxicidade em humanos. Além de alta taxa reprodutiva e rápido desenvolvimento embrionário, a espécie apresenta grande sensibilidade quando exposta a produtos químicos, sendo capaz de absorver rapidamente os compostos que são diretamente adicionados à água e acumulá-los em vários tecidos. O organismo é de fácil obtenção, gerenciamento e de baixo custo. Tanto as nanopartículas reduzidas e estabilizadas com MGF e RESV, quanto os redutores, não apresentaram citotoxicidade, porém as CITR-AuNPs apresentaram IC50 de 180 μg.mL-1. Em relação ao FET TEST, a taxa de letalidade dos organismos expostos a MGF e MGF-AuNPs, ambas na concentração de 350 μg.mL-1, foi de 12% e 5% respectivamente. Já a taxa de letalidade dos organismos expostos ao RESV na concentração de 165 μg.mL-1, foi de 17.5%. A CL50 obtida das RESV-AuNPs foi de 14.55 μg.mL-1, nas concentrações de 82.5 e 165 μg.mL- 1, observou-se atraso estatísticamente significativo da eclosão dos organismos, no período de 72 horas pós fecundação. A taxa de letalidade dos organismos expostos ao citrato de sódio e CITR-AuNPs, ambas na concentração de 250 μg.mL-1, foi de 3.75% e 16.25% respectivamente. Não foram encontrados valores de CL50 nas concentrações testadas das nanopartículas, exceto RESV-AuNPS. Nanopartículas com maiores concentrações do que as testadas não apresentam estabilidade, tendendo a aglomeração e precipitação.

    Histopathological changes in zebrafish exposed to sublethal concentrations of 89nm silver nanoparticles for application in environmental diagnostics
    2020 - AZEVEDO, JULIANA de S.; QUINTINO, MARILIA T.A.; ROGERO, SIZUE O.; ZAMPIERI, MARIA C.T.; ROGERO, JOSE R.
    The use of biomarkers as indicators of environmental contamination has been shown to be an excellent indicator of changes in biota. Histopathological lesions are commonly used in biomonitoring studies as they provide information regarding both acute and chronic exposure. The use of nanoparticle materials has been widespread in recent years. However, not much is known about their ecological effects on the natural environment. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the sublethal effects of silver nanoparticles (AgNP) with mean diameters of 89nm in the zebrafish Danio rerio by the determination of the LC50; 48 h and histopathological assays in gills. The obtained LC50; 48 h was 8.18 mgL 1. The histopathological gill assessment showed primary responses indicative of acute damage as aneurysms (32.76%), hyperplasia (20.69%) and partial (30.17%) and total lamellar fusion (6.9%) of secondary lamellae. No deposition of AgNP was observed in any tested sample gills, suggesting other organs target to absorption and detoxification. In fact, the AgNP causes sublethal damage in the gills of zebrafish but is not able to accumulate in this tissue. Finally, the data shown in this study contribute to the construction of a database on the AgNP exposure in aquatic organisms.

    Fish Embryo Toxicity Test (FET) to evaluate atrazine effects
    2017 - MARTINI, G.; VIVEIROS, W.; FRANÇA, D.D.; QUINAGLIA, G.; RAIMUNDO, C.C.; LOPES-FERREIRA, M.V.; ROGERO, S.O.; ROGERO, J.R.
    Surface water samples from São Paulo state were collected to perform Bioluminescent Yeast Estrogen Screen (BLYES) and chemical analyses (LC-MS/MS). Results showed environmental concentrations of atrazine from 2 to 43 ng L-1 on chemical analyses. Some studies have been performed to evaluate toxic effects on non-target organisms (fish) using herbicides such as Atrazine, a moderately toxic compound classified as an endocrine disrupting chemical (EDC) that can affect reproduction of several aquatic organisms with a compromise of vitellogenin production. To determine toxicity on embryonic stages of fish to different environmental chemicals and waste water, Fish Embryo Toxicity Test (FET) was designed using Danio rerio as model specie on this test, according to OECD 236 or ISO 15088 protocols, however these protocols observe only acute toxicity based on endpoints such as coagulated eggs, nondetachment of the tail, lack of heart beating and lack of somite formation. Some abnormalities can be recorded after the exposure on FET test but they are not considered as endpoint, neither any other compromised biomarker by EDC action. In order to evaluate the possibility of using these chronic endpoints and to verify if those environmental concentrations of atrazine are ecologically relevant, compromising reproductive aspects, FET test using Danio rerio were performed to assess lethal concentrations, sublethal concentrations and vitellogenin quantification after atrazine exposure. Occurrence of morphological abnormalities (microcephaly, spine curvature, edema, reduced size) and mortality of the embryos were determined exposing 20 fertilized eggs to atrazine concentrations from 2 to 64 mg L-1. The LC50 and EC50 were obtained after 96 hours of exposure. Organisms that survived each concentration were frozen to further vitellogenin quantification. Preliminary average concentrations obtained (LC 50; 96h= 48.15 mg L-1 and EC 50; 96h= 27 mg L-1) were considerably higher than concentrations observed on environmental samples. Therefore, surface water concentrations would not cause mortality or deformity in fish emphasizing the necessity to observe possible effect on vitellogenin concentration. Data will be analyzed and compared with the environmental concentration of atrazine to stablish the potential application of vitellogenin as endpoint on FET test.

    Marine sediment contamination in a subtropical zone (Santos Bay, Brazil)
    2017 - PUSCEDDU, F.; SANTOS, D.R.; MORENO, B.B.; GUIMARÃES, L.; CORTEZ, F.S.; PEREIRA, C.D.S.; CHOUERI, R.B.; SANTOS, A.R.; ROGERO, S.O.; ROGERO, J.R.; CESAR, A.
    Although the continuous input of domestic sewage in coastal areas has been reported, few data are available about the presence of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in coastal environments of South America. The aim of this study was to determine the environmental concentration of PPCPs and cocaine in sediments from Santos Bay (Brazil), a degraded coastal area due to urban and industrial pollution. A sediment sample, collected at five points around the Submarine Sewage Outfall of Santos, was analyzed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LCMS/ MS) and 35 compounds were investigated. The presence of five pharmaceuticals (caffeine, carbamazepine, diclofenac, fluoxetine and ibuprofen), one personal care product (triclosan), and one illicit drug (cocaine) was evidenced. Considering the absence of information about the occurrence of PPCPs and illicit drugs in marine sediments of tropical and subtropical areas of South America, the data reported here subsidize the \nassessment of environmental risks of such substances in coastal zones.
