[More] Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are implicated in the development of diabetic complications via the receptor for AGEs (RAGE). We have reported that the 3-hydroxypyridinium (3HP)-containing AGEs derived from α-hydroxyaldehydes physically interact with RAGE and show cytotoxicity. Lactaldehyde (LA) is formed from a reaction between threonine and myeloperoxidase, but no LA-derived AGEs have been characterized. Here, we identify the structure and physiological effects of an AGE derived from LA. We isolated a novel 3HP derivative, 2-acetamido-6-(3-hydroxy-5-methyl-pyridin-1-ium-1-yl)hexanoate, named as N-acetyl-LAPL (lactaldehyde-derived pyridinium-type lysine adduct), from a mixture of LA with Nα-acetyl-L-lysine. LAPL was also detected in the LA-modified protein. LAPL elicited toxicity in PC12 neuronal cells, but the effect was suppressed by the soluble form of RAGE as a decoy receptor. Moreover, surface plasmon resonance-based analysis revealed that LAPL specifically binds to recombinant RAGE. These results indicate that LA generates an AGE containing the 3HP moiety and contributes to RAGE-dependent cytotoxicity.

[More] Contamination of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) is ubiquitously detected in various environments. However, their potential effects on microbial communities remain largely unknown. In this study, surface seawater of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) is sampled to measure PFAA concentrations and profile the structure of free-living microbial community. Total PFAAs concentrations range from 131 to 1563 pg L-1 in surface seawater. PFOS (16-470 pg L-1), PFOA (27-272 pg L-1), PFHpA (18-201 pg L-1) and PFBA (25-152 pg L-1) are the major homologues, indicating continued industrial application or release of PFOS and a gradual shift towards using shorter-chain PFAAs. Concentrations of PFAAs from this recent cruise are much lower than previous reports, which may be due to the effective management of PFAA usage around PRD region. In addition, the microbial community in PRD surface seawater is predominantly colonized by the Proteobacteria phylum (27.2 to 61.5%) and the Synechococcus genus (5.6 to 38.6%). The structure of the microbial communities varies among stations, mainly resulting from different abundances of Synechococcus, Prochlorococcus and Nitrosopumilus. Geochemical parameters (e.g., nutrients and salinity) and phytoplankton are significantly associated with the microbial community dynamics in surface seawater. In the interactive network of microbiota, a subset of bacteria (i.e., Fluviicola, Nitrosopumilus, Limnohabitans, Sediminibacterium, C39 and Polynucleobacter) shows significantly positive correlations with PFAAs (R > 0.6; P < 0.001). Overall, this study gives a timely monitoring of PFAA pollution around PRD area. Shift in environmental microbiota by geochemical factors and phytoplankton is also observed, which may affect biogeochemical cycling.

[More] High-level contaminations of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) were determined in both surface water and groundwater around a fluorochemical industrial park (FIP) in Fuxin, China, over the past few years. Yet little is known about whether groundwater PFAS contaminations in Fuxin could be introduced into home-produced vegetables and eggs in local residences via the application of groundwater for the irrigation or feeding purposes. In the present study, ten PFAS analytes were analyzed via high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) to investigate the extent of PFAS contaminations in the groundwater, soil, and home-produced vegetable and egg samples derived from Fuxin. As the predominant PFAS contaminants, perfluorobutane sulfonate (PFBS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) were observed in groundwater beneath the Fuxin FIP with the maximum concentrations of 21.2 and 2.51 µg/L, respectively, which were 24-fold and 5-fold higher individually compared to those reported previously. Both of them were also higher than the updated health advisories for PFBS and PFOA in drinking water issued by the Minnesota Department of Health and the US Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, short-chain PFASs involving perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA) and PFBS were found to be the major contaminants in both home-produced vegetables and eggs from the residential gardens around the FIP. Statistically significant relationships were determined between the levels of PFBA, PFOA, and PFBS in local groundwater and those observed in home-produced vegetables (p = 0.003, p = 0.025, and p < 0.001), suggesting potential entry of those PFAS contaminants into home-produced vegetables via irrigation with groundwater beneath the FIP.

[More] The occurrence of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in vegetables and fruits, as well as agricultural environment, was investigated in the downstream regions of Changshu fluorine-chemical industrial park (CFCIP) in China. Twenty-one PFCs were analyzed in irrigation water, agricultural soil, typical vegetables, and fruits, with the maximum total PFC concentrations of 369.9 ng/L, 64.7 ng/g dw, 11.5 ng/g ww, and 10.5 ng/g ww, respectively. Short-chained perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFCAs) such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorobutanoic acid (PFBA), and perfluorohexanoic acid were the dominant PFCs in terms of their concentrations and detection frequency. PFCs in irrigation water and agricultural soils showed a decreasing trend with increasing distance from CFCIP, while this pattern was not observed in agricultural products. The predominant compounds varied in different vegetables and fruits. Simultaneous bioaccumulation of PFBA and PFOA was found in melons and solanaceous species and pears. Leafy vegetables and grapes exhibited high bioaccumulation of PFOA and PFBA, respectively. Health risk assessment by calculating estimated daily intake showed that no direct risk was caused by the consumption of vegetables and fruits for the residents in the investigated regions. However, the tolerable weekly intake of PFOA exceeded the established thresholds for the adult residents. A comprehensive health assessment of the dietary exposure of PFCs, including all exposure pathways, in fluorine-chemical industrial park-impacted regions is needed.

[More] This study presents the effects of fluorescent dissolved organic matters (FDOM) on perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) in western Lake Chaohu and its inflow rivers. The surface water samples from the 27 sites in western Lake Chaohu and its inflow rivers were collected in March and September 2013. The contents of PFAAs and the FDOM in the water samples were measured by a high-performance liquid chromatograph - mass spectrometer (HPLC-MS) and by a fluorescence spectrophotometer, respectively. The temporal-spatial distributions of PFAAs and FDOM, as well as their interrelationships, were investigated. Eleven PFAA components were detected, and the mean concentration of total PFAAs (TPFAAs) in western Lake Chaohu and its inflow rivers were 12.93 ± 5.19 ng/L and 11.84 ± 9.50 ng/L, respectively. PFOA was the predominant contaminant in two regions (7.13 ± 3.07 ng/L and 4.30 ± 2.14 ng/L) followed by PFHxA (1.72 ± 0.80 ng/L and 1.42 ± 1.41 ng/L) and PFBA (1.44 ± 0.78 ng/L and 1.37 ± 0.78 ng/L). The mean concentration of total FDOM in western Lake Chaohu and its inflow rivers were 220.0 ± 40.30 μg quinine sulfate units (Q.S.)/L and 406.3 ± 213.1 μg Q.S./L, respectively. The significant, positive correlations were observed between the PFAAs and FDOMs in both the lake area and the inflow rivers. However, no significant correlation was observed between PFAAs and the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the lake area. This finding indicated that the residues and distributions of PFAAs were significantly dependent on the compositions of dissolved organic matters (DOM) and not on the total content of DOM.

[More] Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), are of interest to regulators, water treatment utilities, the general public and scientists. This study measured 17 PFAS in source and treated water from 25 drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs) as part of a broader study of CECs in drinking water across the United States. PFAS were quantitatively detected in all 50 samples, with summed concentrations of the 17 PFAS ranging from <1 ng/L to 1102 ng/L. The median total PFAS concentration was 21.4 ng/L in the source water and 19.5 ng/L in the treated drinking water. Comparing the total PFAS concentration in source and treated water at each location, only five locations demonstrated statistically significant differences (i.e. P < 0.05) between the source and treated water. When the perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) concentrations in the treated drinking water are compared to the existing US Environmental Protection Agency's PFOA and PFOS drinking water heath advisory of 70 ng/L for each chemical or their sum one DWTP exceeded the threshold. Six of the 25 DWTPs were along two large rivers. The DWTPs within each of the river systems had specific PFAS profiles, with the three DWTPs from one river being dominated by PFOA, while three DWTPs on the second river were dominated by perfluorobutyric acid (PFBA).
