The Comparison of Oxidative Stress Between Inhalation Anesthetics

2014-08-27 03:19:49 | BioPortfolio


Oxidative stress is an unavoidable event during cardiac surgery. Isoprostanes have been demonstrated to be a reliable biomarker for the evaluation of oxidative stress in vivo.The aims of this study are(1)to develop an accurate liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods for the detection of urinary isoprostane isomers in samples collected from healthy volunteers(for method quality control) and patients receiving a cardiac surgery (2)to investigate the change of isoprostanes after cardiopulmonary bypass(CPB) (3)to investigate the effect of different anesthetics on isoprostanes.


Enhanced production of oxygen free radicals can lead to the generation of oxidative stress, which is harmful to human tissue and organs. Reactive oxygen species are released abruptly during some surgical procedures, and they are the major causes of ischemia-reperfusion injuries.Isoprostanes have been demonstrated to be a reliable biomarker for the evaluation of oxidative stress in vivo. Therefore, accurately monitoring and avoiding the occurrence of oxidative stress during surgery is an important clinical issue.

Isoprostanes are a series of prostaglandin-like compounds produced by non-enzymatic peroxidation of arachidonic acid.The aims of this study are(1)to develop an accurate liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods for the detection of urinary isoprostane isomers in samples collected from patients receiving a cardiac surgery (2)to investigate the change of isoprostanes after cardiopulmonary bypass (3)to investigate the effect of different anesthetics on isoprostanes during surgery.

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).

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.
