Blood reflects tissue oxidative stress depending on biomarker and tissue studied
This study investigated whether selected oxidative stress markers measured in blood adequately reflect redox status in skeletal muscle, heart, and liver. Several markers were determined after implementing two treatments ...
Application of a new oxidation-reduction potential assessment method in strenuous exercise-induced oxidative stress
Objectives: The aim of the study was to test a novel method for assessing oxidative stress, the RedoxSYS (TM) diagnostic system, a holistic, fast, minimally invasive, and requiring small sample volume method, that measures ...
Dexamethasone has a biphasic effect on the c-Jun m-RNA expression in the fetal and adult rat lung, in vivo
Glucocorticoids are a very potent therapy for the treatment of asthma as well for lung maturation in the prematurely newborn animals and human. It has been demonstrated that glucocorticoid receptors antagonize the actions ...
The response of digestive proteases to abrupt salinity decrease in the euryhaline sparid Sparus aurata L
The response of the digestive proteases to abrupt salinity change was studied in juvenile gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) for 15 days after transfer from 33 parts per thousand to 21 parts per thousand. Salinity decrease ...
Proteins from fish eggs that protect DNA from acid precipitation and inhibit DNA synthesis
We partially characterized proteins that inhibit DNA acid precipitation from various fish eggs (Sparus aurata, Dicentrarchus labrax, Mugil cephalus and Zeus faber). The active proteins were purified by acetone fractionation. ...
Antioxidant activity of a series of fluorinated pyrano-nucleoside analogues of N-4-benzoyl cytosine and N-6-benzoyl adenine
Fluorinated nucleoside analogues are known as antitumor, antiviral and chemotherapeutic agents, although the antioxidant activity of this kind of molecules is not yet investigated. In this study we have tested the antioxidant ...
