Vitamin C: update on physiology and pharmacology
Although ascorbic acid is an important water‐soluble antioxidant and enzyme cofactor in plants and animals, humans and some other species do not synthesize ascorbate due to the lack of the enzymeExpand

The Ascorbate-glutathione-α-tocopherol Triad in Abiotic Stress Response
The life of any living organism can be defined as a hurdle due to different kind of stresses. As with all living organisms, plants are exposed to various abiotic stresses, such as drought, salinity,Expand

BGP-15 inhibits caspase-independent programmed cell death in acetaminophen-induced liver injury.
It has been recently shown that acute acetaminophen toxicity results in endoplasmic reticulum redox stress and an increase in cells with apoptotic phenotype in liver. Since activation of effectorExpand

Acetaminophen induces ER dependent signaling in mouse liver.
Role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in liver injury by acetaminophen (AAP) was studied in vivo in mice. Sublethal dose of AAP resulted in a decrease in microsomal total glutathione and in theExpand

Human SLPI inactivation after cigarette smoke exposure in a new in vivo model of pulmonary oxidative stress.
The role of oxidative stress in inactivating antiproteases is the object of debate. To address this question, we developed an in vivo model of pulmonary oxidative stress induced by cigarette smokeExpand

Circulating angiogenic factors determined by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay in relation to the clinical features and laboratory parameters in women with pre-eclampsia
The purpose of this study was to determine whether increased serum soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1) and decreased placental growth factor (PlGF) levels in pre-eclampsia are related to theExpand
