Dopamine (DA) is rapidly oxidized by Mn3(+)-pyrophosphate to its cyclized o-quinone (cDAoQ), a reaction which can be prevented by NADH, reduced glutathione (GSH) or ascorbic acid. The oxidation of DA by Mn3+, which appears to be irreversible, results in a decrease in the level of DA, but not in a formation of reactive oxygen species, since oxygen is neither(More)
Redox modification of proteins is proposed to play a central role in regulating cellular function. However, high-throughput techniques for the analysis of the redox status of individual proteins in complex mixtures are lacking. The aim was thus to develop a suitable technique to rapidly identify proteins undergoing oxidation of critical thiols by(More)
In this report the protein human glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) has been examined to clarify the roles of (a) direct oxidation and (b) thiol-disulphide exchange (with glutathione disulphide) on the modification of its catalytic activity. An in vitro system using purified human GAPDH and [35S]-GSSG (glutathione disulphide), has permitted(More)
The findings in this article illustrate the complexity residing in the regulation of reversible S-glutathionylation of proteins, such as GAPDH. This is clearly reflected in the design of suitable experimental approaches designed to cope with the interaction of several redox-dependent factors. Clear interactions are demonstrated between oxidative(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was to determine the influence of closed-system subdural drainage on repeated operation rates after burr hole evacuation of subacute and chronic subdural hematomas (SDHs). METHODS Five hundred consecutive operations for the treatment of SDH via burr holes were performed between January 1, 1996, and April 15, 2002, at the(More)
A chromatographic method for the specific determination of cellular low molecular mass thiols has been applied to human muscle tissue. The method is based on the derivatisation of thiols using monobromobimane, which is a specific reagent for the sulphydryl group. The glutathione and cysteine bimane adducts were separated by reversed-phase HPLC, whilst(More)
DT diaphorase [NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase] activity was measured in subcellular fractions from homogenates of striatum, frontal cortex, hippocampus, cerebellum, hypothalamus and substantia nigra. This flavoprotein, which by definition oxidizes dihydronicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and dihydronicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate at equal rates(More)
Chloroplast (ct) and mitochondrial (mt) DNAs from four cytoplasmic male sterile (cms) and 22 normal fertile sugar beet lines and accessions of wild beets from the genusBeta have been compared with restriction analyses and Southern hybridizations. We have used restriction analyses of ctDNA as a phylogenetic marker to confirm the taxonomic relationships(More)
