Bioflavonoids as antiradicals, antioxidants and DNA cleavage protectors
Flavonoids have recently aroused considerable interest because of their broad pharmacological activity. In fact, flavonoids have been reported to have antiviral, antiallergic, antiplatelet,Expand
Reactive oxygen species levels and DNA fragmentation on astrocytes in primary culture after acute exposure to low intensity microwave electromagnetic field
The exposure of primary rat neocortical astroglial cell cultures to acute electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the microwave range was studied. Differentiated astroglial cell cultures at 14 days in vitroExpand
L-Propionyl-carnitine as superoxide scavenger, antioxidant, and DNA cleavage protector
L-Propionylcarnitine, a propionyl ester of L-carnitine, increases the intracellular pool of L-carnitine. It exhibits a high affinity for the enzyme carnitine acetyltransferase (CAT) and, thus, isExpand
Free radical scavenging capacity and protective effect of Bacopa monniera L. on DNA damage
Bacopa monniera L. (family Scrophulariaceae) (BM) is an Ayurvedic medicine, clinically used for memory enhancing, epilepsy, insomnia and as a mild sedative. In this work, the free radical scavengingExpand
Chilean propolis: antioxidant activity and antiproliferative action in human tumor cell lines.
Propolis, a natural product derived from plant resins collected by honeybees, has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine all over the world. The composition of the propolis dependsExpand
Propolis protects human spermatozoa from DNA damage caused by benzo[a]pyrene and exogenous reactive oxygen species.
Many environmental, physiological and genetic factors have been implicated in defective sperm function, the most common cause of infertility. In addition, sperm preparation techniques such asExpand
Indian medicinal plants as antiradicals and DNA cleavage protectors.
Celastrus paniculatus L. (Celastraceae) (CP), Picrorhiza kurroa L. (Scrophulariaceae) (PK) and Withania somnifera L. (Solanaceae) (WS) are Indian medicinal plants having a remarkable reputation, as aExpand
HO-1 expression increases mesenchymal stem cell-derived osteoblasts but decreases adipocyte lineage.
Human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are pleiotropic cells that differentiate to either adipocytes or osteoblasts as a result of cross-talk by specific signaling pathways including hemeExpand
DNA damage in human fibroblasts exposed to fumonisin B(1).
Fumonisins are mycotoxins produced by several Fusarium species (Fusarium verticilloides and F. proliferatum) that infest corn and other cereals. Fumonisin B(1) (FB(1)), structurally resemblingExpand
DNA Damage in Astrocytes Exposed to Fumonisin B1
Fumonisins are a group of toxic metabolites mainly produced by Fusarium moniliforme and Fusarium proliferatum, fungi that commonly occur on corn throughout the world. Fumonisin B1 (FB1), structurallyExpand
