Summary of "Oxidative stress in testes of rats exposed to n-butylparaben."

This study was aimed at determining if oxidative stress imbalance in testes of rats occurs after n-butylparaben (n-ButP) exposure. Young male Sprague-Dawley rats were subcutaneously treated with n-ButP during one spermatogenic cycle (57 days) at 0 (control-oil), 150, 300 and 600 mg/kg/d with peanut oil as vehicle. A non-vehicle control group was also included. Antioxidant enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione reductase, and glutathione peroxidase) and levels of reduced and oxidized glutathione were measured in testes. Lipid peroxidation and HO concentrations were also assessed. Results showed an increase of oxidative stress in oil-treated groups, excepting 600 mg/kg/d, suggesting oxidative stress due to peanut oil. A possible antioxidant effect due to n-ButP and its metabolites was suggested at 600 mg/kg/d, the only group not showing oxidative stress. An increase of calcium concentration in testes was also observed. On the other hand, a physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model was developed and the concentrations of n-ButP and its metabolites were simulated in plasma and testes. The peak concentration (C) in testes was found slightly higher than that in plasma. The current results indicate that peanut oil can cause oxidative stress while high doses of n-ButP can act as antioxidant agent in testes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

A naturally occurring phenolic acid which is a carcinogenic inhibitor. It has also been shown to prevent paraquat-induced oxidative stress in rats. (From J Chromatogr A 1996;741(2):223-31; Biosci Biotechnol Biochem 1996;60(5):765-68).

The appearance of carbonyl groups (such as aldehyde or ketone groups) in PROTEINS as the result of several oxidative modification reactions. It is a standard marker for OXIDATIVE STRESS. Carbonylated proteins tend to be more hydrophobic and resistant to proteolysis.

A protein deglycase that repairs methylglyoxal- and glyoxal-glycated amino acids and proteins, releasing repaired proteins and lactate or glycolate. It deglycates CYSTEINE, ARGININE and LYSINE residues to reactivate proteins by reversing glycation and prevent the formation of ADVANCED GLYCATION END PRODUCTS. It protects cells against OXIDATIVE STRESS and CELL DEATH by functioning as an oxidative stress sensor and redox-sensitive MOLECULAR CHAPERONE and PROTEASE. Mutations in the PARK7 gene are associated with autosomal-recessive, early-onset PARKINSON DISEASE.

A direct-acting oxidative stress-inducing agent used to examine the effects of oxidant stress on Ca(2+)-dependent signal transduction in vascular endothelial cells. It is also used as a catalyst in polymerization reactions and to introduce peroxy groups into organic molecules.
