Many medications exhibit clinical benefits that are unrelated to their primary therapeutic uses. In many cases, the mechanisms underpinning these pleotropic effects are unknown. Two commonly prescribe...
Apolipoprotein-derived peptides have emerged as a potential candidate for the treatment of various inflammatory disease conditions. Previously we have shown that peptides derived from human apolipopro...
Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a disease characterized by diffusing alveolar inflammation and alveolar structural disorders that ultimately lead to pulmonary interstitial fibrosis. S-allylmercaptocysteine...
Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) has been considered as an important regulator in the development of inflammatory diseases. However, the mechanism of HDAC6 in regulating inflammatory responses has not be...
Arthritis is a common degenerative joint disease characterized by deterioration of articular cartilage, subchondral bone, and associated with immobility, pain and inflammation. The incessant action of...
Obesity is associated with general low grade inflammation and, consequently, of oxidative stress that affects properties and functionality of lipoproteins. Metabolic syndrome exacerbate lo...
Randomized controlled trial of acute use of electronic cigarette effect on oxidative stress and inflammation.
Metabolic syndrome (Mets) is defined as the collection of risk factors contributing to type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Mets is accompanied by oxidative stress and low-...
The role of oxidative stress in disease pathology is increasingly recognized. At present, the development of biomarkers of this state is in its infancy and the availability of clinically v...
Oxidative stress has been linked to many diseases associated with aging, including coronary heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. Antioxidants and special proteins in the body work toget...
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).
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.
An activating transcription factor that plays a key role in cellular responses to GENOTOXIC STRESS and OXIDATIVE STRESS.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
