The present study examined whether dynamic cerebral autoregulation and blood-brain barrier function would become compromised as a result of exercise-induced oxidative-nitrosative stress. Eight healthy men were examined at rest and after an incremental bout of semi-recumbent cycling exercise to exhaustion. Changes in a dynamic cerebral autoregulation index(More)
The 2-ethoxycarbonyl-2-methyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrrole-l-oxide (EMPO), an easily prepared pyrroline-N-oxide has been tested as a free radical scavenger. Spin adducts of superoxide, hydroxyl radical, and other free radicals were characterized in phosphate buffer at pH 7.0 and 5.6. At pH 7 in phosphate buffer, the EMPO/O(2)(-*) spin adduct was estimated to be(More)
A series of isotropic EPR spectra recorded at various concentrations and pH (in the range 2-12) on equilibrium systems containing copper(II) and diglycine, triglycine, or tetraglycine were analyzed. A purely mathematical method, matrix rank analysis gave the number of independent EPR-active species. Two-dimensional evaluation then resulted in the formation(More)
Ocular melanomas embedded in paraffin wax for histological examination have been studied by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. A free-radical signal was detected at the g = 2.003 section of the spectrum. The amplitude of this signal was correlated with the number of melanin granules in microscopical slides made from the tumour. This positive(More)
ESR spectra of chicken liver and hepatoma tissue embedded in paraffin display signals characteristic of free radicals and paramagnetic complexes. Owing to embedding the spectrum is altered as compared to that of the native tissue but remains characteristic of the respective tissues. The spectra of tissues embedded in paraffin allow no more than qualitative(More)
A linear correlation have been found between the amplitude of the free radical signal of the electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum of paraffin embedded liver blocks and the number of bile casts in the histological sections made from these blocks. It has been suggested that the major part of the ESR free radical signal arises from bile pigment, but the(More)
Free radicals (spectroscopic splitting factor; g factor=2.003–2.005) were investigated in formol-fixed, paraffin embedded heart-muscle tissue sections using electron spin resonance (ESR) spectra. Changes in signal amplitude, g factor and line width were registered during deparaffinization, chloroform-methanol extraction, vapour treatment and bromination. An(More)
The first solution studies at physiological pH for the formation of metal complexes of taurine, +NH3CH2CH2S03-, one of the most abundant low molecular weight organic compounds in the animal kingdom, are reported. The complexes Cu(Gly-GlyH-1) (1) and [Cu(Gly-AspH-1)] (2) react with taurine to give the ternary complexes [Cu(Gly-GlyH-1)taurine]- (3) (log(More)
Arsenic is one of the most environmentally significant pollutants and a great global health concern. Although a growing body of evidence suggests that reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediate the mechanism of arsenic toxicity, the exact mechanism remains elusive. In this study, we examine the capacity of trivalent arsenic species arsenous acid (iAs(III)),(More)
