Oxidative stress is increased in critically ill patients according to antioxidant vitamins intake, independent of severity: A cohort study
(Springer Science + Business Media, 2006)
Critically ill patients suffer from oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS). Although ROS/RNS are constantly produced under normal circumstances, critical illness can ...
Effect of oxidative stress, produced by cumene hydroperoxide, on the various steps of protein synthesis. Modifications of elongation factor-2
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1996)
We have studied the effect of oxidative stress on protein synthesis in rat liver. Cumene hydroperoxide (CH) was used as an oxidant agent. The approach used was to determine the ribosomal state of aggregation and the time ...
Potential use of adipose tissue stem cells in the control of aging
(Federation of Anti-Aging Medicine Societies, 2012)
Cell therapy with adult stem cells is a new battle front for the control of aging. Before being used for this purpose, we need to answer several basic questions about the biochemistry and physiology of these cells. This ...
Elongation factor 2-diphthamide is critical for translation of two IRES-dependent protein targets, XIAP and FGF2, under oxidative stress conditions
Elongation factor-2 (eEF2) catalyzes the movement of the ribosome along the mRNA. A single histidine residue in eEF2 (H715) is modified to form diphthamide. A role for eEF2 in cellular stress responses is highlighted by ...
Stress Increases Vulnerability to Inflammation in the Rat Prefrontal Cortex
(Society for Neuroscience, 2006)
Inflammation could be involved in some neurodegenerative disorders that accompany signs of inflammation. However, because sensitivity to inflammation is not equal in all brain structures, a direct relationship is not clear. ...
Molecular Control of the Amount, Subcellular Location and Activity State of Translation Elongation Factor 2 (eEF-2) in Neurons Experiencing Stress
Eukaryotic elongation factor 2 (eEF-2) is an important regulator of the protein translation machinery wherein it controls the movement of the ribosome along the mRNA. The activity of eEF-2 is regulated by changes in cellular ...
Effect of VBC-1814/7J, a poly-phytocompound, on a non-infectious model of pharyngitis
(Spandidos Publications, 2017)
Pharyngitis presents as an inflammation of the oropharynx, and clinical examination often shows evidence of nasopharyngitis. In numerous cases the condition occurs as a self-limiting illness of non-infectious aetiology, ...
Physical exercise and myokines
(Spanish Society of Anti-Aging Medicine and Longevity, 2019-10)
Among the types of muscles present in the body is skeletal muscle, which is the one that allows the development of physical activity thanks to the contractile activity of its muscle cells. It is known that physical ...
Effect of Age and Lipoperoxidation in Rat and Human Adipose Tissue-Derived Stem Cells
A wide range of clinical applications in regenerative medicine were opened decades ago with the discovery of adult stem cells. Highly promising adult stem cells are mesenchymal stem/stromal cells derived from adipose tissue ...
Lipid peroxidation: Production, metabolism, and signaling mechanisms of malondialdehyde and 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
Lipid peroxidation can be described generally as a process under which oxidants such as free radicals attack lipids containing carbon-carbon double bond(s), especially polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Over the last ...
