To clarify the effects of selenium, parameters related to oxidative issues, as well as the antioxidant response were investigated on an autochthonous wine yeast strain.
This article was published in the following journal.

Mechanisms responsible for diesel exhaust particle (DEP)-induced toxicity in respiratory disorders are poorly understood, recent experimental and controlled exposure studies suggested that oxidative s...
Copper (Cu) is a necessary trace element participated in many physiological processes in plants. But excessive Cu2+ is toxic, which can activate intracellular signals that lead to cellular damage. The...
This experiment was conducted to investigate the effects and mechanism of selenium (Se) on antioxidant and immune function of bovine mammary epithelial cells (BMEC) damaged by nitric oxide (NO). The t...
Cadmium (Cd) accumulation is known to occur predominantly in kidney and liver; however, low-level long-term exposure to Cd may also result in bone damage. Few studies have addressed Cd-induced toxicit...
Drug resistance in helminth parasites has incurred several difficulties to livestock industry and ranked among the top public health concerns. Therefore, seeking for new agents to control parasites is...
Selenium is a trace element essential to human health.Selenium protection against cellular damage by oxygen radicals is accomplished through selenoproteins. Ischemic stroke is associated w...
Oxidative stress has been implicated in the development and complications of diabetes. Hyperglycemia and insulin resistance or insufficiency in diabetes can cause oxidative stress by exces...
Septic shock is a frequent syndrome with a 45% mortality rate despite intensive care unit (ICU) care, where free radicals may play a key role, and a >40% decrease in plasma selenium concen...
Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center researchers are trying to compare the effects of two different forms of selenium (selenium yeast and selenomethionine) on blood selenium levels ...
This study will investigate whether increased habitual intake of antioxidant supplements effects the concentration of endogenous antioxidants, the response of antioxidants to exercise, and...
A disturbance in the prooxidant-antioxidant balance in favor of the former, leading to potential damage. Indicators of oxidative stress include damaged DNA bases, protein oxidation products, and lipid peroxidation products (Sies, Oxidative Stress, 1991, pxv-xvi).
An element with the atomic symbol Se, atomic number 34, and atomic weight 78.96. It is an essential micronutrient for mammals and other animals but is toxic in large amounts. Selenium protects intracellular structures against oxidative damage. It is an essential component of GLUTATHIONE PEROXIDASE.
An extracellular selenoprotein that contains most of the SELENIUM in PLASMA. Selenoprotein P functions as an antioxidant and appears to transport selenium from the LIVER to peripheral tissues.
A selenium compound used as a source of SELENIUM, especially for patients that develop selenium deficiency following prolonged PARENTERAL NUTRITION.
Eukaryotic enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These eukaryotic enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing both negatively and positively supercoiled DNA.
