Project proposal
Title:  Biochemical basis of food toxicity

Type Details: The purporse of this investigation is to develop the implementation of new biochemical tests for rapid, quantitative determination of pollutants mainly in food and in fish from natural as aquaculture sources. It includes the qualitative and quantitative determination of toxic substances in food, revealing of primary toxic ingredients and evaluation of the impact of biotoxins, surfactants, heavy metals, pesticides and pathogenic microorganisms on human health.

FP-Instruments: any other
Research interest:  Development of necessary biochemical tests for defining of the most overall parameters of food quality and safety.Biochemical control of food quality and safety. Exposure and determination of toxic substance concentrations mainly in fish products and in food raw materials and in foodstuff; identification of causes for metabolic diseases with the aim of diagnostic and prevention; determination of food value (contents of fat, proteins, vitamins etc.)Evaluation of the degree of pollutants influence on human health.Determination of major effects in influence on health for several pollutants.Development of new methods for prevention and increasing of food safety by the decreasing of food toxicity.
Expiry Date: 0000-00-00
     Target Partner
Expertise:  We are looking for partners interested in this topic and who want to form a consortium. The future scientific collaboration can include survey on possible food-drug interactions among populations from different European countries.

Number of Employees:  5 -500
Details:  The Institute of Biology is a division of Karelian Research Centre of the Russian Academy of Science which is one of the first-rate, key Research Centres of Russia. Research work at the Institute has covered most actual directions of fundamental and applied science by highest qualification specialists. Established in 1957 the Environmental Biochemistry Laboratory using all-time develop research methods, deal with a problem of applied ecological pattern. One of the important industry of Republic Karelia is fish industry covered fishing, growth, natural and artificial reproduction of commercially-valuable fish species and production of food from fish primary. On account of strong ecological pollution of North Europe there is a problem of primary quality for fish industry. In this connection The Laboratory has high multilateral cooperation with fish industry and that is why promote deal with some problems in this field, one and most important of which is Food Quality and Safety. Toward this end scientists of Laboratory carry out a research work such as exposure and determination of concentration of toxic substance in fish primary and food; identification of fish diseases causes, diagnostic and prophylaxis; determination of food value (contents of fat, proteins, vitamins etc.). Also the Laboratory has cooperative research and applied work with over Research Institutes for creation protein hydrolysates using for pharmaceutical, food and agriculture industries. The Laboratory has all necessary equipment and from 2005 year its potential will develop by means of PCR-laboratory.
Keywords: Food contaminations; qualitative and quantative determination toxicity substance; pollutants; toxicity of biotoxins, pesticides, heavy metals, surfactants; pathogenity of microorganisms.
