This study aims to evaluate and compare the antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects of resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydoxystilbene) with two of its naturally occurring oligomers, epsilon-viniferin (a dimer) and miyabenol C (a trimer). Proliferation assays performed on myeloid and lymphoid cell lines show that the three compounds inhibit cell growth of(More)
Oxygenated lipid mediators released from non-enzymatic peroxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are known to have functional roles in humans. Notably, among these lipid mediators, isoprostanes molecules are robust biomarkers of oxidative stress but those from n-3 PUFA are also bioactive molecules. In order to identify and assess the isoprostanes,(More)
Among retinal macular diseases, the juvenile recessive Stargardt disease and the age-related degenerative disease arise from carbonyl and oxidative stresses (COS). Both stresses originate from an accumulation of all-trans-retinal (atRAL) and are involved in bisretinoid formation by condensation of atRAL with phosphatidylethanolamine (carbonyl stress) in the(More)
