Di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) induces apoptosis and autophagy of mouse GC-1 spg cells.

As a widely used plasticizer in industry, di-2-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP) can cause testicular toxicity, yet little is known about the potential mechanism. In this study, DEHP exposure dramatically in...

Aflatoxin B promotes autophagy associated with oxidative stress-related PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway in mice testis.

Aflatoxin B (AFB) is a hazard environmental pollutants and the most toxic one of all the aflatoxins. AFB can cause a serious impairment to testicular development and spermatogenesis, yet the underlyin...

All-trans-retinal induces autophagic cell death via oxidative stress and the endoplasmic reticulum stress pathway in human retinal pigment epithelial cells.

Failure of all-trans-retinal (atRAL) clearance contributes to retina degeneration. However, whether autophagy can be activated by excess atRAL accumulation in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells is...

Long-term 1-nitropyrene exposure induces endoplasmic reticulum stress and inhibits steroidogenesis in mice testes.

1-Nitropyrene (1-NP) is a representative nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon from diesel exhaust. Recently, we found that maternal 1-NP exposure caused fetal growth retardation and disturbed cogniti...

Is WDR45 the missing link for ER stress-induced autophagy in beta-propeller associated neurodegeneration?

Beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration (BPAN) is caused by mutations in the autophagy gene . In human, BPAN is associated with static encephalopathy in childhood and neurodegeneration in ...

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 multidomain protein that is highly conserved among multicellular organisms. It contains a ZZ-type ZINC FINGER domain, C-terminal UBIQUITIN - associated (UBA) domain, and interacts with many other signaling proteins and enzymes including, atypical PROTEIN KINASE C; TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTOR 6; subunits of the mTORC1 complex, and CASPASE-8. It functions in AUTOPHAGY as a receptor for the degradation of ubiquitinated substrates, and to co-ordinate signaling in response to OXIDATIVE STRESS.

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.
