Small double-stranded, non-protein coding RNAs (21-31 nucleotides) involved in GENE SILENCING functions, especially RNA INTERFERENCE (RNAi). Endogenously, siRNAs are generated from dsRNAs (RNA, DOUBLE-STRANDED) by the same ribonuclease, Dicer, that generates miRNAs (MICRORNAS). The perfect match of the siRNAs' antisense strand to their target RNAs mediates RNAi by siRNA-guided RNA cleavage. siRNAs fall into different classes including trans-acting siRNA (tasiRNA), repeat-associated RNA (rasiRNA), small-scan RNA (scnRNA), and Piwi protein-interacting RNA (piRNA) and have different specific gene silencing functions.

Daunorubicin-induced apoptosis in rat cardiac myocytes is inhibited by dexrazoxane. (1/22885)

-The clinical efficacy of anthracycline antineoplastic agents is limited by a high incidence of severe and usually irreversible cardiac toxicity, the cause of which remains controversial. In primary cultures of neonatal and adult rat ventricular myocytes, we found that daunorubicin, at concentrations /=10 micromol/L induced necrotic cell death within 24 hours, with no changes characteristic of apoptosis. To determine whether reactive oxygen species play a role in daunorubicin-mediated apoptosis, we monitored the generation of hydrogen peroxide with dichlorofluorescein (DCF). However, daunorubicin (1 micromol/L) did not increase DCF fluorescence, nor were the antioxidants N-acetylcysteine or the combination of alpha-tocopherol and ascorbic acid able to prevent apoptosis. In contrast, dexrazoxane (10 micromol/L), known clinically to limit anthracycline cardiac toxicity, prevented daunorubicin-induced myocyte apoptosis, but not necrosis induced by higher anthracycline concentrations (>/=10 micromol/L). The antiapoptotic action of dexrazoxane was mimicked by the superoxide-dismutase mimetic porphyrin manganese(II/III)tetrakis(1-methyl-4-peridyl)porphyrin (50 micromol/L). The recognition that anthracycline-induced cardiac myocyte apoptosis, perhaps mediated by superoxide anion generation, occurs at concentrations well below those that result in myocyte necrosis, may aid in the design of new therapeutic strategies to limit the toxicity of these drugs.  (+info)

Base excision repair of oxidative DNA damage activated by XPG protein. (2/22885)

Oxidized pyrimidines in DNA are removed by a distinct base excision repair pathway initiated by the DNA glycosylase--AP lyase hNth1 in human cells. We have reconstituted this single-residue replacement pathway with recombinant proteins, including the AP endonuclease HAP1/APE, DNA polymerase beta, and DNA ligase III-XRCC1 heterodimer. With these proteins, the nucleotide excision repair enzyme XPG serves as a cofactor for the efficient function of hNth1. XPG protein promotes binding of hNth1 to damaged DNA. The stimulation of hNth1 activity is retained in XPG catalytic site mutants inactive in nucleotide excision repair. The data support the model that development of Cockayne syndrome in XP-G patients is related to inefficient excision of endogenous oxidative DNA damage.  (+info)

Chaperone activity with a redox switch. (3/22885)

Hsp33, a member of a newly discovered heat shock protein family, was found to be a very potent molecular chaperone. Hsp33 is distinguished from all other known molecular chaperones by its mode of functional regulation. Its activity is redox regulated. Hsp33 is a cytoplasmically localized protein with highly reactive cysteines that respond quickly to changes in the redox environment. Oxidizing conditions like H2O2 cause disulfide bonds to form in Hsp33, a process that leads to the activation of its chaperone function. In vitro and in vivo experiments suggest that Hsp33 protects cells from oxidants, leading us to conclude that we have found a protein family that plays an important role in the bacterial defense system toward oxidative stress.  (+info)

The Golgi apparatus plays a significant role in the maintenance of Ca2+ homeostasis in the vps33Delta vacuolar biogenesis mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (4/22885)

The vacuole is the major site of intracellular Ca2+ storage in yeast and functions to maintain cytosolic Ca2+ levels within a narrow physiological range. In this study, we examined how cellular Ca2+ homeostasis is maintained in a vps33Delta vacuolar biogenesis mutant. We found that growth of the vps33Delta strain was sensitive to high or low extracellular Ca2+. This strain could not properly regulate cytosolic Ca2+ levels and was able to retain only a small fraction of its total cellular Ca2+ in a nonexchangeable intracellular pool. Surprisingly, the vps33Delta strain contained more total cellular Ca2+ than the wild type strain. Because most cellular Ca2+ is normally found within the vacuole, this suggested that other intracellular compartments compensated for the reduced capacity to store Ca2+ within the vacuole of this strain. To test this hypothesis, we examined the contribution of the Golgi-localized Ca2+ ATPase Pmr1p in the maintenance of cellular Ca2+ homeostasis. We found that a vps33Delta/pmr1Delta strain was hypersensitive to high extracellular Ca2+. In addition, certain combinations of mutations effecting both vacuolar and Golgi Ca2+ transport resulted in synthetic lethality. These results indicate that the Golgi apparatus plays a significant role in maintaining Ca2+ homeostasis when vacuolar biogenesis is compromised.  (+info)

Characterization of transgenic mice with targeted disruption of the catalytic domain of the double-stranded RNA-dependent protein kinase, PKR. (5/22885)

The interferon-inducible, double-stranded RNA-dependent protein kinase PKR has been implicated in anti-viral, anti-tumor, and apoptotic responses. Others have attempted to examine the requirement of PKR in these roles by targeted disruption at the amino terminal-encoding region of the Pkr gene. By using a strategy that aims at disruption of the catalytic domain of PKR, we have generated mice that are genetically ablated for functional PKR. Similar to the other mouse model of Pkr disruption, we have observed no consequences of loss of PKR on tumor suppression. Anti-viral response to influenza and vaccinia also appeared to be normal in mice and in cells lacking PKR. Cytokine signaling in the type I interferon pathway is normal but may be compromised in the erythropoietin pathway in erythroid bone marrow precursors. Contrary to the amino-terminal targeted Pkr mouse, tumor necrosis factor alpha-induced apoptosis and the anti-viral apoptosis response to influenza is not impaired in catalytic domain-targeted Pkr-null cells. The observation of intact eukaryotic initiation factor-2alpha phosphorylation in these Pkr-null cells provides proof of rescue by another eukaryotic initiation factor-2alpha kinase(s).  (+info)

Increased lipophilicity and subsequent cell partitioning decrease passive transcellular diffusion of novel, highly lipophilic antioxidants. (6/22885)

Oxidative stress is considered a cause or propagator of acute and chronic disorders of the central nervous system. Novel 2, 4-diamino-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidines are potent inhibitors of iron-dependent lipid peroxidation, are cytoprotective in cell culture models of oxidative injury, and are neuroprotective in brain injury and ischemia models. The selection of lead candidates from this series required that they reach target cells deep within brain tissue in efficacious amounts after oral dosing. A homologous series of 26 highly lipophilic pyrrolopyrimidines was examined using cultured cell monolayers to understand the structure-permeability relationship and to use this information to predict brain penetration and residence time. Pyrrolopyrimidines were shown to be a more permeable structural class of membrane-interactive antioxidants where transepithelial permeability was inversely related to lipophilicity or to cell partitioning. Pyrrole substitutions influence cell partitioning where bulky hydrophobic groups increased partitioning and decreased permeability and smaller hydrophobic groups and more hydrophilic groups, especially those capable of weak hydrogen bonding, decreased partitioning, and increased permeability. Transmonolayer diffusion for these membrane-interactive antioxidants was limited mostly by desorption from the receiver-side membrane into the buffer. Thus, in this case, these in vitro cell monolayer models do not adequately mimic the in vivo situation by underestimating in vivo bioavailability of highly lipophilic compounds unless acceptors, such as serum proteins, are added to the receiving buffer.  (+info)

Inactivation of both RNA binding and aconitase activities of iron regulatory protein-1 by quinone-induced oxidative stress. (7/22885)

Iron regulatory protein-1 (IRP-1) controls the expression of several mRNAs by binding to iron-responsive elements (IREs) in their untranslated regions. In iron-replete cells, a 4Fe-4S cluster converts IRP-1 to cytoplasmic aconitase. IRE binding activity is restored by cluster loss in response to iron starvation, NO, or extracellular H2O2. Here, we study the effects of intracellular quinone-induced oxidative stress on IRP-1. Treatment of murine B6 fibroblasts with menadione sodium bisulfite (MSB), a redox cycling drug, causes a modest activation of IRP-1 to bind to IREs within 15-30 min. However, IRE binding drops to basal levels within 60 min. Surprisingly, a remarkable loss of both IRE binding and aconitase activities of IRP-1 follows treatment with MSB for 1-2 h. These effects do not result from alterations in IRP-1 half-life, can be antagonized by the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine, and regulate IRE-containing mRNAs; the capacity of iron-starved MSB-treated cells to increase transferrin receptor mRNA levels is inhibited, and MSB increases the translation of a human growth hormone indicator mRNA bearing an IRE in its 5'-untranslated region. Nonetheless, MSB inhibits ferritin synthesis. Thus, menadione-induced oxidative stress leads to post-translational inactivation of both genetic and enzymatic functions of IRP-1 by a mechanism that lies beyond the "classical" Fe-S cluster switch and exerts multiple effects on cellular iron metabolism.  (+info)

Identification and functional characterization of a novel mitochondrial thioredoxin system in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (8/22885)

The so-called thioredoxin system, thioredoxin (Trx), thioredoxin reductase (Trr), and NADPH, acts as a disulfide reductase system and can protect cells against oxidative stress. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, two thioredoxins (Trx1 and Trx2) and one thioredoxin reductase (Trr1) have been characterized, all of them located in the cytoplasm. We have identified and characterized a novel thioredoxin system in S. cerevisiae. The TRX3 gene codes for a 14-kDa protein containing the characteristic thioredoxin active site (WCGPC). The TRR2 gene codes for a protein of 37 kDa with the active-site motif (CAVC) present in prokaryotic thioredoxin reductases and binding sites for NADPH and FAD. We cloned and expressed both proteins in Escherichia coli, and the recombinant Trx3 and Trr2 proteins were active in the insulin reduction assay. Trx3 and Trr2 proteins have N-terminal domain extensions with characteristics of signals for import into mitochondria. By immunoblotting analysis of Saccharomyces subcellular fractions, we provide evidence that these proteins are located in mitochondria. We have also constructed S. cerevisiae strains null in Trx3 and Trr2 proteins and tested them for sensitivity to hydrogen peroxide. The Deltatrr2 mutant was more sensitive to H2O2, whereas the Deltatrx3 mutant was as sensitive as the wild type. These results suggest an important role of the mitochondrial thioredoxin reductase in protection against oxidative stress in S. cerevisiae.  (+info)

Oxidative stress leads to many kinds of diseases. Currently, urinary 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is widely measured as an oxidative stress biomarker. There is a specific advantage if saliva can be used as the sample to measure the oxidative stress biomarker, because saliva is much easier to collect than urine. In this study, we investigated the measurement of 8-hydroxyguanine (8-OHGua) as an oxidative stress marker in saliva, by a column switching HPLC system equipped with an electrochemical detector (HPLC-ECD). The 8-OHGua in saliva could be detected as a single peak by HPLC-ECD. The average level of 8-OHGua in saliva was 3.80 ng/mL in ordinary, non-smoking subjects. The salivary 8-OHGua levels of smokers were significantly higher than those of non-smokers. Salivary 8-OHGua may be a useful noninvasive and promising oxidative stress biomarker.

We show that RES increase the expression of FoxO1A, FoxO3A, and FoxO4 under chronic oxidative stress conditions (Fig. 2). This response is consistent with a homeostatic response to protect lens epithelial cells. Baur et al. 28 found that RES extended lifespan in a high-fat diet mouse model and that it appeared to be dependent on activation of Sir2. It was further demonstrated that the Sir2 homolog SIRT1 controls the cellular response to stress by regulating the FoxO family. 29 SIRT1 and the FoxO transcription factor FoxO3 form a complex in cells in response to oxidative stress. In our study, we found that RES increased expression of FoxO3A and also enhanced the expression of FoxO1A and FoxO4 under chronic oxidative stress conditions, suggesting that FoxO1A and FoxO4 may also be involved in the protective effects of RES (Fig. 2). This is further supported by the finding that knockdown of individual FoxOs by FoxO siRNAs decreases the protective effects of RES against acute oxidative stress. A ...

N2 - Purpose: To establish a model of mild and chronic oxidative stress using hyperoxia for retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells in vitro. Methods: RPE340 cells and WI38 lung fibroblasts were grown in normal oxygen (20% O2) and hyperoxia (40% O2 or 60% O2). After cell viability was examined, the levels of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) by flow cytometry and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) mRNA by northern analysis were measured as markers of oxidative stress in both cell types. Proliferative ability and gene expression pattern of growth factors were studied to demonstrate the phenotypic changes induced by mild oxidative stress upon these cells. Results: While decreased by 60% O2, 40% O2 did not affect viability in both cell types, ROI production and HO-1 mRNA expression were elevated in hyperoxia compared to ...

This is a phase II intervention to propose a new melanoma chemoprevention agent. The investigators believe oxidative stress/damage in nevi is a probable indication for melanoma risk, and propose that reduced melanoma risk in humans can be inferred by protection of nevi from ultraviolet light (UV)-induced oxidative changes. The investigators will 1) evaluate whether administration of NAC around the time of UV exposure will reduce melanoma risk in high-risk patient populations with genetic susceptibility to UV-induced oxidative stress, and 2) examine key genetic variants that will identify which individuals are most likely to benefit from chemoprotection ...

We tested this hypothesis using ...
The pathogenesis of hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is multifactorial and often associated with the development of brain oedema. In addition to ammonia playing a central role, systemic oxidative stress is believed to aggravate the neuropsychological effects of ammonia in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD). The aim of this study was to (i) induce systemic oxidative stress in hyperammonaemic portacaval anastomosed (PCA) rats by inhibiting the antioxidant glutathione using Dimethyl maleate (DEM) and (ii) investigate whether a synergistic relationship between ammonia and oxidative stress contributes to the pathogenesis of brain oedema in CLD. ...

Standardized mean differences (SMDs) +/- 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for results from |= 3 studies were calculated. Data Synthesis:
The renoprotective mechanisms of hemeoxygenase-1 (HO-1) in diabetic nephropathy remain to be investigated. We hypothesize that HO-1 protects the kidney from diabetic insult via lowering renal oxidative stress and inflammation. We used control and diabetic SHR with or without HO-1 inducer cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP) treatment for 6 weeks. Urinary albumin excretion levels were significantly elevated in diabetic SHR compared to control and CoPP significantly attenuated albumin excretion. Immuno-histochemical analysis revealed an elevation in TGF-β staining together with increased urinary collagen excretion in diabetic versus control SHR, both of which were reduced with CoPP treatment. Renal oxidative stress markers were greater in diabetic SHR and reduced with CoPP treatment. The increase in renal oxidative stress was associated with an elevation in renal inflammation in diabetic SHR. CoPP treatment also significantly attenuated the markers of renal inflammation in diabetic SHR. In vitro inhibition of HO

In the pathogenesis of renal fibrosis, oxidative stress (OS) enhances the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to sustained cell growth, inflammation, excessive tissue remodelling and accumulation, which results in the development and acceleration of renal damage. In our previous work (128) we established protein DJ-1 (PARK7) as an important ROS scavenger and key player in renal cell response to OS. In the present study we investigated the impact of profibrogenic agonists on DJ-1 and shed light on the role of this protein in renal fibrosis. Treatment of renal fibroblasts and epithelial cells with the profibrogenic agonist ANG II or PDGF resulted in a significant up-regulation of DJ-1 expression parallel to an increase in the expression of fibrosis markers. Monitoring of DJ-1 expression in kidney extract and tissue sections from renal fibrosis mice model (Col4a3-deficient) revealed a disease grad dependent regulation of the protein. Overexpression of DJ-1 prompted cell resistance ...

Cells, particularly mechano-sensitive musculoskeletal cells such as tenocytes, routinely encounter oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can not only stimulate tissue repair, but also cause damage leading to tissue degeneration. As diabetes is associated with increased oxidative damage as well as increased risk of tendon degeneration, the aim of this study was to determine if extracellular glucose levels alter the response of tendon cells to oxidative stress. Primary human tenocytes were cultured in either high (17.5 mM) or low (5 mM) glucose and treated with 100 μM hydrogen peroxide. In low glucose, peroxide-treated cells remained fully viable and collagen synthesis was increased, suggesting an anabolic response. In high glucose, however, peroxide treatment led to increased bim-mediated apoptosis. The activities of both forkhead box O (FOXO1) and p53 were required for upregulation of bim RNA expression in high glucose. We found that both p53-mediated inhibition of the bim repressor micro RNA (miR17-92)

Oxidative stress biomarkers, in vivo heart rate (f(H)), and contraction dynamics of ventricle strips of bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeiana) tadpoles were evaluated after 48 h of exposure to a sub-lethal concentration (1 ppm) of the herbicide Roundup Original (R) (glyphosate 41%). The activities of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase and catalase were increased in the liver and decreased in muscle, while oxidative damage to lipids increased above control values in both tissues, showing that the generation of reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress are involved in the toxicity induced by Roundup (R). Additionally, tadpoles hyperactivity was associated with tachycardia in vivo, probably due to a stress-induced adrenergic stimulation. Ventricle strips of Roundup (R)-exposed tadpoles (R-group) presented a faster relaxation and also a higher cardiac pumping capacity at the in vivo contraction frequency, indicating that bullfrog tadpoles were able to perform cardiac mechanistic adjustments ...

It was also explored that whether or not the cell localization (peripheral or central position in a cell population) would modify the cell death-inducing effect of hydrogen peroxide. Anti-growth effect of hydrogen peroxide (0.05-1mM) on cell survival was tested by the MTT viability assay while the effect of it on DNA synthesis was measured by [3H] thymidine incorporation assay.

Hyperglycaemia-induced oxidative stress plays an important role in cardiomyocyte cell death leading to cardiac dysfunction. Autophagy is an intracellular bulk degradation process and can be induced by stressors such as nutrient depletion and acute ischemia, to promote cell survival. Oxidative stress is an important regulator of autophagy in various pathophysiological conditions such as ischemia/reperfusion injury and hypoxia. The role of autophagy in the oxidative stress tolerance of cardiac cells exposed to simultaneous hyperglycemia and hypoxia has not been studied. The aim of the present study is to determine the role of autophagy in cardiac cells in response to combined hyperglycemia and hypoxia. H9c2 rat cardiac cell lines were grown in DMEM supplemented with standard (5.6 mM), moderately high (25 mM) and high (33 mM) glucose concentrations. The cells were then exposed to hypoxia condition (1% oxygen, O2) for 24h and 48h using the hypoxia chamber. Cell viability and oxidative stress was ...
Keywords: Reactive Oxygen Species, NADPH, Ischemic strokes, cerebral ischemia, Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione Peroxidase. Abstract: The mechanisms leading to cellular damage from ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury are complex and multi-factorial. Accumulating evidence suggests an important role for oxidative stress in the regulation of neuro-inflammation following stroke. Gene expression studies have revealed that the increase in oxygen radicals post-ischemia triggers the expression of a number of pro-inflammatory genes. These genes are regulated by the transcription factor, nuclear factor-kappa-B (NF-??B) which is redox-sensitive. It is hypothesised that changes in the oxidative state may modulate alterations in the neuro-inflammatory response following an I/R injury. Furthermore, NF-??B is involved in the transcriptional regulation of adhesion molecules, which play an important role in leukocyte-endothelium interactions. Recent studies have demonstrated that adhesion molecule-mediated ...

Furthermore, skin tensile strength measurements confirmed that the dorsal ...
This paper discusses the scientific evidence that has been collected regarding the influence of physical activity on oxidative stress. One of the bodys responses to exercise or physical activity is increased levels of free radicals. Physical activity can increase the formation of free radicals in the body thereby increasing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is a condition that occurs because of an imbalance between the production of free radicals with antioxidant defense systems in the body. MDA (Malondialdehyde) is one of the indicators used to determine oxidative stress in humans. MDA is the result of lipid peroxidation in the body due to free radicals. Increased conditions of oxidative stress have implications for muscle damage and if it lasts in the long run will lead to various diseases such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, diabetes, heart failure, stroke, and other chronic diseases. It is recommended that the understanding of this should be understood by all sports actors, both ...
Saliva is easily obtainable for medical research and requires little effort or training for collection. Because saliva contains a variety of biological compounds, including vitamin C, malondialdehyde, amylase, and proteomes, it has been successfully used as a biospecimen for the reflection of health status. A popular topic of discussion in medical research is the potential association between oxidative stress and negative outcomes. Systemic biomarkers that represent oxidative stress can be found in saliva. It is unclear, however, if saliva is an accurate biospecimen as is blood and/or plasma. Exercise can induce oxidative stress, resulting in a trend of antioxidant supplementation to combat its assumed detriments. Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant supplement in the realm of sports and exercise. One potential avenue for evaluating exercise induced oxidative stress is through assessment of biomarkers like vitamin C and malondialdehyde in saliva. At present, limited research has been done in this ...
Reactive oxygen species are produced during anaerobic exercise mostly by Fe ions released into plasma and endothelial/muscle xanthine oxidase activation that generates uric acid (UA) as the endpoint metabolite. Paradoxically, UA is considered a major antioxidant by virtue of being able to chelate pro-oxidative iron ions. This work aimed to evaluate the relationship between UA and plasma markers of oxidative stress following the exhaustive Wingate test. Plasma samples of 17 male undergraduate students were collected before, 5 and 60 min after maximal anaerobic effort for the measurement of total iron, haem iron, UA, ferric-reducing antioxidant activity in plasma (FRAP), and malondialdehyde (MDA, biomarker of lipoperoxidation). Iron and FRAP showed similar kinetics in plasma, demonstrating an adequate pro-/antioxidant balance immediately after exercise and during the recovery period (5-60 min). Slight variations of haem iron concentrations did not support a relevant contribution of rhabdomyolysis ...
NIEHS Grant P30ES006096 An NIEHS grantee and colleagues report that biomarkers of oxidative stress are associated with hip fracture in postmenopausal women. If additional studies confirm these results, the biomarkers could help improve prediction of hip fracture, which is associated with substantial cost and a high risk of disability and death.. Oxidative stress occurs when the body insufficiently responds to reactive oxygen species. Environmental factors such as radiation and pollutants can add to the natural level of reactive oxygen species and overcome the bodys defenses. Studies in people have suggested that oxidative stress might be a risk factor for osteoporosis, but its relationship with fracture risk is poorly understood. To find out more, the researchers prospectively assessed oxidative stress by measuring fluorescent oxidation products (FlOP) in 996 women from the Nurses Health Study who were 60 or older at baseline blood collection between 1989 and 1990. FlOPs are markers of global ...
Hyperglycemia and oxidative stress are conditions directly related to the metabolic syndrome (MetS), whose prevalence is increasing worldwide. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a new weight-loss dietary pattern on improving the oxidative stress status on patients suffering MetS with hyperglycemia. Seventy-nine volunteers were randomly assigned to two low-calorie diets (−30% Energy): the control diet based on the American Health Association criteria and the RESMENA diet based on a different macronutrient distribution (30% proteins, 30% lipids, 40% carbohydrates), which was characterized by an increase of the meal frequency (seven-times/day), low glycemic load, high antioxidant capacity (TAC) and high n-3 fatty acids content. Dietary records, anthropometrical measurements, biochemical parameters and oxidative stress biomarkers were analyzed before and after the six-month-long study. The RESMENA (Metabolic Syndrome Reduction in Navarra) diet specifically reduced the android fat mass and
Not surprisingly, the body can also suffer from reductive stress which frequently goes unmentioned. Reductive stress is achieved when the concentrations of reducing agents exceeds that of oxidizing agents. This is commonly encountered with the metabolism of ethanol. It is therefore possible for Health Fanatics to overdose on anti-oxidants and push the body into reductive stress instead of the oxidative stress they are steadfastly trying to avoid. Exercise can have positive or negative effects with regard to Redox effects on the body according to how it is performed. Exercise increases oxidative stress due to metabolic processes but when exercise is undertaken on a regular basis the body up-regulates its own anti-oxidant capacity to cope with the increased demand. This improved anti-oxidant activity clearly has additional benefits when we are not exercising but are under oxidative stress in other ways. Intermittent exercise will increase the oxidative stress burden on the body but is not ...
Vision problems…. Being able to stimulate the bodys own endogenous production of glutathione is the most significant breakthrough in natural medicine that Ive seen in 3o years.. Glutathione is the bodys most important defense against free radicals, chemical toxins, radiation, heavy metals, pollution and oxidative stress.. Oxidative stress is the damage caused to our cells as the result of normal oxidative processes occurring all the time in our bodies.. If you cut an apple in half the exposed sliced parts will soon turn brown. This is an example of oxidative stress. It is the same process which causes metals to rust. A healthy body will keep the damaging effects of oxidative stress at bay. However, cells are damaged when the effects of oxidative stress overwhelm the bodys ability to protect itself.. Someone who spends too much time in the sun will have damaged skin due to the effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. In a sense, oxidative stress causes the body to rust and cause ...
An imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the detoxification of their reactive intermediates causes oxidative stress. Cells must respond to this imbalance before the highly reactive molecules damage cellular structures, particularly DNA. Severe and prolonged oxidative stress can trigger apoptosis and necrosis. Numerous pathological conditions have an oxidative stress component, including cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers disease, and chronic inflammation. Signaling pathways downstream of ROS detection, such as PKC, PI3K, and MAPK, phosphorylate the transcription factor nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2). This transcription factor binds the antioxidant response element (ARE) within the promoters of genes encoding antioxidant enzymes and detoxifying enzymes. Key Nrf2 target genes include antioxidants such as glutathione peroxidases (GPx) and genes involved in superoxide metabolism. These genes reduce oxidative ...

AbstractBackground:Although oxidative stress-related diseases mostly affect neonates with extremely low birthweight, healthy preterm and term newborns may also be at risk of oxidative damage. There have been studies concerning factors that affect the level of oxidative stress biomarkers in term and
SIGNIFICANCE. Oxidative stress is considered to be an important component of various diseases. A vast number of methods have been developed and used in virtually all diseases to measure the extent and nature of oxidative stress, ranging from oxidation of DNA to proteins, lipids, and free amino acids. Recent Advances: An increased understanding of the biology behind diseases and redox biology has led to more specific and sensitive tools to measure oxidative stress markers, which are very diverse and sometimes very low in abundance.. CRITICAL ISSUES. The literature is very heterogeneous. It is often difficult to draw general conclusions on the significance of oxidative stress biomarkers, as only in a limited proportion of diseases have a range of different biomarkers been used, and different biomarkers have been used to study different diseases. In addition, biomarkers are often measured using nonspecific methods, while specific methodologies are often too sophisticated or laborious for routine ...
In certain situations, free radicals can be generated in an exaggerated manner and can injure tissues and organs by interacting with lipids, proteins, or DNA. So, oxidative stress has been implicated in a large number of human diseases. To survive, the human body has developed a complex, efficient, and highly adaptive antioxidant defense system. The eye is also protected against oxidative stress by several mechanisms involving antioxidant enzymes such as catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD), as well as by low-molecular-weight antioxidants such as glutathion (GSH) and ascorbate.. Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, slowly progressive optic neuropathy, characterized by excavation of the optic nerve head (ONH) and a distinctive pattern of visual field (VF) defects. The disease is multifactorial in origin, so that besides more extensively investigated factors oxidative stress has also been proposed as a contributing factor in the etiology of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. ...
Oxidative stress is involved in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis, and hyperglycemia is known to increase oxidative stress, which injures the endothelium and accelerates atherosclerosis. To clarify the relation between oxidative stress, diabetes mellitus (DM), and acute myocardial infarction (AMI), we evaluated and compared time-specific oxidative stress after AMI in patients with and without DM by simple measurement of derivatives of reactive oxygen metabolites (d-ROMs) levels as indices of reactive oxygen species production. Sixty-eight AMI patients were enrolled (34 non-DM patients and 34 DM patients). Using the FRAS4 free radical analytical system, we measured d-ROMs levels in each patient at two time points: 1 and 2 weeks after AMI onset. d-ROM levels decreased significantly between week 1 and week 2 (from 475.4 ± 119.4 U.CARR to 367.7 ± 87.9 U.CARR, p | 0.001) in the non-DM patients but did not change in the DM patients (from 463.1 ± 109.3 U.CARR to 461.7 ± 126.8 U.CARR, p = 0

Alzheimers disease (AD) is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder which is thought to affect 26.6 million individuals worldwide. There is growing concern over a worldwide dementia epidemic that is predicted to develop over the coming decades. The evidence thus far suggests that increased levels of oxidative stress and vascular risk factors are two major contributors, amongst others, to AD development. The thesis aimed to investigate markers of oxidative stress in AD plasma. Moreover, the oxidative status of specific proteins was investigated using both hypothesis driven and proteomic approaches. Results presented in this thesis suggest that global plasma protein oxidation levels are not different when AD and control subjects are compared, but that individual plasma proteins are specific targets for oxidative modification in AD. The thesis explores different methodologies to assess oxidative changes in AD. In addition it demonstrates that emerging novel and powerful mass spectrometry ...
In recent years, different researchers have proposed that translational regulation is central to the response to some stress conditions, during either its initiation and/or elongation steps. However, there is controversy over some of proposed mechanisms. One of the important hostile conditions confronted by bacteria is oxidative stress. Bacteria are often exposed to various environments and anthropogenic factors that favor the production of oxidative molecules, which in some conditions can produce oxidative stress. Consequently, these microorganisms have developed mechanisms to overcome this stress at diverse environments, such as inside of macrophages from humans or other animals. For many years, the study of these mechanisms has focused on transcriptional changes triggered by the stress. However, the RNA components involved in translation are not static and also respond to changes in the cellular environment. In fact, there are examples of alterations induced by oxidative stress conditions to ...

The Plax test is slowly gaining ground as a strong marker for CVD risk. This article further affirms this relationship and goes further, linking oxidative stress biomarkers, Plax and CVD, with almost 2.5 times the risk for CVD when both were present in the highest levels.
In the past few years there has been the increased recognition that the effects of oxidative stress are not limited to the damage of cellular constituents. There is now evidence that reactive oxygen species (ROS) can alter cell function by acting upon the intermediates, or second messengers, in signal transductions. Such effects on signaling mechanisms probably account for the role of oxidative stress in inflammation, aging, and cancer. This volume brings together internationally recognized researchers in both the major areas covered by the book, oxidative stress and signal transduction. The work is organized in three sections. The first deals with the immediate cellular responses to oxidative stress and the production of second messengers. The second details the connection between second messengers and the gene. The third part looks more closely at the level of the gene.
Abstract: After the onset of a stroke, blood flows disrupted in areas affected by vascular occlusion limit the delivery of oxygen and metabolic substrates to neurons causing ATP reduction and energy depletion. The glucose and oxygen deficit that occurs after severe vascular occlusion is the origin of the mechanisms that lead to cell death and cerebral injury caused of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress constitutes mechanism of injury of many types of disease processes. On oxidative stress occurs on the increase in ROS and RNS. This paper will discuss about cerebral ischemia that causes activation of ROS and RNS, also themechanisms that play a role in cell death after cerebral ischemia, for example the role of phospholipase, Haber-Weiss reaction, and lipid peroxidation. It is also described about anti-oxidants to fight free radicals, for examples glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. ...
The imbalance between oxidant molecules and antioxidant agents is characterized as oxidative stress (OS) and may lead to severe damage to the organism. In contrast, the physical training of aerobic and resistive character promotes increases of the antioxidant response, resulting in a balance and/or minimizing damage. Therefore, the objective of the study is to verify the effect of aerobic training, resistive training and concurrent training on oxidative stress of Wistar rats. Methods: To perform the experiment, 40 Wistar rats were subjected to eight weeks of training. The animals were distributed into 4 different groups: control, aerobic, resistive and concurrent (combination of aerobic and resistive protocols in the same section) an h/day, five days/week, for eight weeks. At the end of the experimental period: the antioxidant enzymes (catalase, glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase), biomarkers of oxidative stress (TBARs and H2O2) as well as the activity of reduced and oxidized glutathione
During physiological aerobic metabolism, the epidermis undergoes significant oxidative stress as a result of the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). To maintain a balanced oxidative state, cells have developed protective antioxidant systems, and preliminary studies suggest that the transcriptional factor p63 is involved in cellular oxidative defence. Supporting this hypothesis, the ΔNp63α isoform of p63 is expressed at high levels in the proliferative basal layer of the epidermis. Here we identify the CYGB gene as a novel transcriptional target of ΔNp63 that is involved in maintaining epidermal oxidative defence. The CYGB gene encodes cytoglobin, a member of the globin protein family, which facilitates the diffusion of oxygen through tissues and acts as a scavenger for nitric oxide or other ROS. By performing promoter activity assays and chromatin immunoprecipitation, reverse transcriptase quantitative PCR and western blotting analyses, we confirm the direct regulation of CYGB by ΔNp63α.
Free radicals are biological kleptomaniacs, and no amount of psycho-therapy is going to quell their desire to steal. In the case of skin aging, they are taking electrons. When free radicals steal electrons from other molecules, the result is damage to delicate skin components and further inflammation. Inflammation promotes oxidative stress, and oxidative stress promotes inflammation in an ongoing vicious cycle.. Oxidative Stress: When oxygen is used to produce energy in the human body, one of the byproducts is the creation of highly reactive molecules called free radicals. They are highly reactive because each of them is an unpaired molecule looking for a partner. They can interact with and damage structural fats, proteins, and even delicate genetic components in a process called oxidative stress.. The generation of free radicals is never going to stop. And approximately 3 percent of oxygen used in the metabolic processes of our cells is converted to free radicals. So why bother to worry about ...

N2 - The oxidative stress theory of aging has been the most studied and tested mechanistic theory of why organisms age. However, most recent data on this theory suggest that broadly altering levels of oxidative stress or accumulation of oxidative damage has limited effects on the regulation of lifespan in mammals. This has led to the proposition that aging may be regulated through oxidation-induced changes to cellular redox state and redox signaling rather than through general oxidative stress mechanisms. Redox regulation of cell survival and homeostasis through modulating the pathways necessary for gene regulation, protein activation and deactivation, and apoptosis might then amplify minor alterations in oxidative stress to have drastic effects on an organism. In this chapter, we discuss the evidence that ...
