AB  - Novel allergen immunotherapy (AIT) approaches necessitate the use of more effective and safe therapeutics, which can be accomplished by employing novel adjuvants for improved innate immune cell activation, as well as hypoallergenic allergen forms. In this study, we investigate the immunomodulatory effects of a chimera rBet v 1a-BanLecwt (rBv1a-BLwt; Cwt) composed of the major birch pollen allergen Bet v 1a and banana lectin (BanLecwt; BLwt) and two novel chimeras, rBv1l-BLH84T (rBet v 1l-BanLecH84T; C1) and rBLH84T-Bv1l (rBanLecH84T-Bet v 1l; C2), both composed of BLH84T and hypoallergenic birch pollen allergen Bv1l in the co-culture model Caco-2/THP-1, and PBMCs from donors with birch pollen allergy. The chimeric molecules rBv1l-BLH84T (C1) and rBLH84T-Bv1l (C2) were created in silico and then produced in E. coli using recombinant DNA technology. Real-time PCR analysis of gene expression following compound treatment in the co-culture model revealed that all three chimeras have the potential to induce the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 gene expression in Caco-2 cells and IFN-γ gene expression in THP-1 cells. Sandwich ELISA revealed that Cwt increased IL-10 secretion and IFN-/IL-4 levels in PBMCs from birch pollen allergic donors, whereas C1 and C2 were less effective. The findings suggest that Cwt should be analyzed further due to its potential benefit in AIT.

AB  - As byproducts of essential oil distillation, hydrolates are used in natural cosmetics/biomedicine due to their beneficial skin effects. However, data on their safety with relevant biological targets, such as human skin cells, are scarce. Therefore, we have tested nine hydrolates from the Lamiaceae family with skin fibroblasts that are responsible for extracellular collagenous matrix builds. Thyme, oregano, and winter savoury hydrolates showed several times higher total phenolics, which correlated strongly with their radical scavenging and antioxidative capacity; there was no correlation between their viability profiles and the reducing sugar levels. No proteins/peptides were detected. All hydrolates appeared safe for prolonged skin exposure except for 10-fold diluted lavender, which showed cytotoxicity (~20%), as well as rosemary and lavandin (~10%) using viability, DNA synthesis, and cell count testing. Clary sage, oregano, lemon balm, and thyme hydrolates (10-fold diluted) increased fibroblast viability and/or proliferation by 10–30% compared with the control, while their viability remained unaffected by Mentha and winter savoury. In line with the STITCH database, increased viability could be attributed to thymol presence in oregano and thyme hydrolates in lemon balm, which is most likely attributable to neral and geranial. The proliferative effect of clary sage could be supported by alpha-terpineol, not linalool. The major volatile organic compounds (VOCs) associated with cytotoxic effects on fibroblasts were borneol, 1,8-cineole, and terpinene-4-ol. Further research with pure compounds is warranted to confirm the roles of VOCs in the observed effects that are relevant to cosmetic and wound healing aspects.

AB  - The combination of b-oligosaccharides from enzymatically hydrolysed barley b-glucan has attracted interest recently due to its positive effects on human health. This study aimed to assess the impact of the
endo-b-1,3-1,4-glucanase enzyme from Bacillus subtilis 168 on improving the nutritional and bioactive
properties of barley b-glucan. A new procedure for the isolation of b-glucan was developed, at a lower
temperature (45 °C), enabling purity from starch contamination, without affecting the yield (6 g b-glucan
from 100 g of barley flour). The endo-b-1,3-1,4-glucanase is cloned into E. coli pQE_Ek enables the high
production and purification (82% yield, 1.8 mg mL 1 and 440 U mg 1
) of an enzyme identical to the
natural one (25.5 kDa). The enzymatic reaction showed high efficiency of b-glucan degradation by recombinant enzyme, giving a mixture of products (of which 3-O-b-cellobiosyl-D-glucose and 3-O-b-cellotriosylD-glucose are the most abundant), the reduction of viscosity (17%) and increase in antioxidant capacities
by 15.2%, 30.9% and 44.0% assessed by ABTS, DPPH and ORAC, respectively. These results indicate
the possible application of endo-b-1,3-1,4-glucanase enzyme in improving the properties of barley bglucan used as functional foods.

AB  - α-Amylase from the thermophilic bacterial strain Anoxybacillus vranjensis ST4 (AVA) was cloned into the pMALc5HisEk expression vector and successfully expressed and purified from the Escherichia coli ER2523 host strain. AVA belongs to the GH13_5 subfamily of glycoside hydrolases and has 7 conserved sequence regions (CSRs) distributed in three distinct domains (A, B, C). In addition, there is a starch binding domain (SBD) from the CBM20 family of carbohydrate binding modules (CBMs). AVA is a monomer of 66 kDa that achieves maximum activity at 60–80 °C and is active and stable over a wide pH range (4.0–9.0). AVA retained 50 % of its activity after 31 h of incubation at 60 °C and was resistant to a large number of denaturing agents. It hydrolyzed starch granules very efficiently, releasing maltose, maltotriose and maltopentaose as the main products. The hydrolysis rates of raw corn, wheat, horseradish, and potato starch, at a concentration of 10 %, were 87.8, 85.9, 93.0, and 58 %, respectively, at pH 8.5 over a 3 h period. This study showed that the high level of expression as well as the properties of this highly stable and versatile enzyme show all the prerequisites for successful application in industry.

AB  - As one of the most promising groups of microbes, lactic acid bacteria (LAB) can synthesize metabolites that can be used in different industries over the world, mainly in the pharmaceutical, food, and dairy industries. In this study, a novel exopolysaccharide was extracted and isolated from the probiotic strain Lactobacillus reuteri B2, and assessed on biological activity and its possible application as a biosorbent for the removal of Ni2+ ions from contaminated water. New exopolysaccharide was characterized using FTIR, SEM, XRD, NMR, MALDI-TOF MS, and TGA/DTG analysis. Biological assays included antioxidative activity, cytotoxic assay, and adhesion assay of L. reuteri B2 to HT29 cells. Our hypothesis was that if this exopolysaccharide is nontoxic, it can be used as a novel biomaterial for the possible application of the removal of Ni2+ ions from contaminated water. The scavenging effect of nontoxic exopolysaccharide was 76% at 2 mg/mL using ABTS assay, in biological assays, while the removal efficiency of nickel from the aqueous solution was 92.96% in biosorption study. According to these results, this exopolysaccharide can be considered a very promising biomaterial for potential application in different industries, from pharmacy to wastewater treatments.

AB  - Using the universal primers (UNI16Sfw and UNI16Srev) [1], the representative isolates were identified by 16S rDNA sequencing. Amplification was carried out in a thermal cycler (Applied Biosystems, ThermoFisher Scientific) and DNA fragments were amplified as follows: initial denaturation at 94 °C for 5 min, followed by 30 cycles consisting of denaturation at 94 °C for 1 min, annealing at 55°C for 1 min, and polymerization at 72°C for 1 min, and a final extension at 72°C for 7 min. The expected length was 1549 bp. Aliquots (5 µl) of the amplified products were subjected to electrophoresis in 1% agarose gel (ThermoFisher Scientific) in TAE buffer (40 mM Tris acetate, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.2). Gels were stained with ethidium bromide (500 ng/mL) and visualized under UV light (BioDoc Analyze). All amplicons were eluted and purified using GeneJet PCR Purification Kit (ThermoScientific) by following the manufacturer`s protocol. The PCR products that we obtained were sequenced by the Macrogen Sequencing Service (Macrogen, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and analyzed by using BLAST algorithm (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/index.html). Selected isolates were identified as follows: isolate B2 - Lacotbacillus reuteri, isolate H10 - Lactobacillus murinus, and isolate J7 - Klebsiella oxytoca [2]. The most numerous colonies belong to isolate B2, hence it was chosen for further characterization as a potential source for exopolysaccharide (EPS) production.

AB  - Fluorescently labeled lectins are useful tools for in vivo and in vitro studies of the structure and function of tissues and various pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi. For the evaluation of high-mannose glycans present on various glycoproteins, a three-dimensional (3D) model of the chimera was designed from the crystal structures of recombinant banana lectin (BanLec, Protein Data Bank entry (PDB): 5EXG) and an enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP, PDB 4EUL) by applying molecular modeling and molecular mechanics and expressed in Escherichia coli. BanLec-eGFP, produced as a soluble cytosolic protein of about 42 kDa, revealed β-sheets (41%) as the predominant secondary structures, with the emission peak maximum detected at 509 nm (excitation wavelength 488 nm). More than 65% of the primary structure was confirmed by mass spectrometry. Competitive BanLec-eGFP binding to high mannose glycans of the influenza vaccine (Vaxigrip®) was shown in a fluorescence-linked lectin sorbent assay (FLLSA) with monosaccharides (mannose and glucose) and wild type BanLec and H84T BanLec mutant. BanLec-eGFP exhibited binding to mannose residues on different strains of Salmonella in flow cytometry, with especially pronounced binding to a Salmonella Typhi clinical isolate. BanLec-eGFP can be a useful tool for screening high-mannose glycosylation sites on different microorganisms

AB  - In this study, Lactobacillus reuteri B2was isolated fromthe feces of C57BL/6 mice and assessed on probiotic activity.L. reuteri B2was identified by 16S rDNA sequencing, which the cell viability in acidic conditions at pH 2.0was64% after 2 h, and in the presents of 0.30% of the bile salts, after 6 h, was 37%. Antimicrobial assay with L. reuteri B2showed maximumdiameters against Klebsiela oxytoca J7 (12.5±0.71mm).Wefurther hypothesized if L. reuteriB2 strain in the free form can survive all conditions in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) then the utilization of theappropriate biomaterials would ameliorate its stability and viability in GIT. L. reuteri B2 was microencapsulatedinto sodium alginate-(Na-alg) and different content of Na-alg and sodium maleate (SM) beads. Characterizationmaterials enveloped their thermal characteristics (TGA/DTA analysis) and structure using: scanning electron microscopy(SEM), FTIR, and particle size distribution. The high survival rate of L. reuteri B2 at lowpH from2.0 to 4.0and in the presence of the bile salts, at concentrations up to 0.30%, was obtained. L. reuteri B2 showed strong antimicrobialactivity and the best protection microencapsulated with Na-alg + SM in simulated gastric juices(SGJ).

Antimicrobial assay with L. reuteri B2showed maximumdiameters against Klebsiela oxytoca J7 (12.5±0.71mm).Wefurther hypothesized if L. reuteriB2 strain in the free form can survive all conditions in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) then the utilization of theappropriate biomaterials would ameliorate its stability and viability in GIT. L. reuteri B2 was microencapsulatedinto sodium alginate-(Na-alg) and different content of Na-alg and sodium maleate (SM) beads. Characterizationmaterials enveloped their thermal characteristics (TGA/DTA analysis) and structure using: scanning electron microscopy(SEM), FTIR, and particle size distribution. The high survival rate of L. reuteri B2 at lowpH from2.0 to 4.0and in the presence of the bile salts, at concentrations up to 0.30%, was obtained. L. reuteri B2 showed strong antimicrobialactivity and the best protection microencapsulated with Na-alg + SM in simulated gastric juices(SGJ).",

AB  - Allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is a desensitizing treatment for allergic diseases that corrects the underlined pathological immune response to innocuous protein antigens, called allergens. Recombinant allergens employed in the AIT allowed the production of well-defined formulations that possessed consistent quality but were often less efficient than natural allergen extracts. Combining recombinant allergens with an adjuvant or immunomodulatory agent could improve AIT efficacy. This study aimed to perform structural and functional characterization of newly designed recombinant chimera composed of the Bet v 1, the major birch pollen allergen, and Banana Lectin (BanLec), TLR2, and CD14 binding protein, for the application in AIT. rBet v 1-BanLec chimera was designed in silico and expressed as a soluble fraction in Escherichia coli. Purified rBet v 1-BanLec (33.4 kDa) retained BanLec-associated biological activity of carbohydrate-binding and preserved IgE reactive epitopes of Bet v 1. The chimera revealed secondary structures with predominant β sheets. The immunomodulatory capacity of rBet v 1-BanLec tested on macrophages showed changes in myeloperoxidase activity, reduced NO production, and significant alterations in the production of cytokines when compared to both rBanLec and rBet v 1. Comparing to rBet v 1, rBet v 1-BanLec was demonstrated to be more efficient promoter of IL-10 production as well as weaker inducer of NO production and secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines TNFα, and IL-6. The ability of rBet v 1-BanLec to promote IL-10 in together with the preserved 3D structure of Bet v 1 part implies that the construct might exert a beneficial effect in the allergen-specific immunotherapy.
