The reactive aldehyde acrolein is a ubiquitous environmental pollutant and is also generated endogenously. It is a strong electrophile and reacts rapidly with nucleophiles including thiolates. This review focuses on the effects of acrolein on thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) and thioredoxin (Trx), which are major regulators of intracellular protein thiol redox(More)
Acrolein is a reactive aldehyde that is a widespread environmental pollutant and can be generated endogenously from lipid peroxidation. The thioredoxin (Trx) system in endothelial cells plays a major role in the maintenance of cellular thiol redox balance, and is critical for cell survival. Normally, cells maintain the cytosolic (Trx1) and mitochondrial(More)
Addison disease is a rare endocrine disorder, which typically presents with nonspecific symptoms including weight loss, fatigue, and nausea in conjunction with hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. This case demonstrates key diagnostic clues in evaluation of an adolescent who presented with severe hyperkalemia and acute kidney injury that was resistant to insulin,(More)
