Summary of "Study of antioxidant properties of thylakoids and application in UV protection and repair of UV-induced damage."

Skin is affected by environmental stress such as ultraviolet exposure. Topically applied antioxidants confer protection against this stress. Spinach thylakoid extracts are plant samples known as photosynthetic membranes containing antioxidant molecules able to dissipate excess of energy and oxidative stress.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The naturally occurring or experimentally induced replacement of one or more AMINO ACIDS in a protein with another. If a functionally equivalent amino acid is substituted, the protein may retain wild-type activity. Substitution may also diminish, enhance, or eliminate protein function. Experimentally induced substitution is often used to study enzyme activities and binding site properties.

A naturally occurring metabolite of HISTIDINE that has antioxidant properties.

A di-tert-butyl PHENOL with antioxidant properties.

An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)

This discipline concerns the study of SEXUALITY, and the application of sexual knowledge such as sexual attitudes, psychology, and SEXUAL BEHAVIOR. Scope of application generally includes educational (SEX EDUCATION), clinical (SEX COUNSELING), and other settings.
