The oxidation of spermine in vitro by a mixture of polyamine oxidase and diamine oxidase from pig kidney gives rise to malondialdehyde via 3-aminopropanol as the intermediate. Conversely, with spermidine, under similar experimental conditions, no evidence could be obtained for malondialdehyde formation within the limits of sensitivity of the assay (2.0(More)
The biochemical response of rabbits experimentally infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei was studied following infection, treatment and re-infection. Twenty five cross bred New zealand and Chinchila White rabbits were divided into 5 groups (A, B, C, D & E) of 5 rabbits each. All the rabbits were infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei (5x10 6(More)
The effects of oral administration of crude methanol extract of red cultivar Allium cepa (Onion) on serum cardiac troponin (cTnI) in cardiac muscle and some haematological parameters were investigated in this study. Fifty five (55) male albino rats were housed and fed with standard growers ration and water ad libitum. There were three major groups; A, B and(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are natural products inevitably generated along with cellular metabolism. Due to their extreme reactivity, they can damage DNA, proteins and lipids. Dietary antioxidants have been shown to take part in cellular reduction-oxidation (redox) reactions in which they can act as either antioxidants (election donors) or pro-oxidants(More)
