Activities of superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in schizophrenic and manic-depressive patients.
Activities of superoxide dismutase (EC 1.15.1.1) and glutathione peroxidase (EC 1.11.1.9) in erythrocytes were evaluated in 50 schizophrenic and 20 manic-depressive patients, who were or were notExpand

Free radical generation during delta-aminolevulinic acid autoxidation: induction by hemoglobin and connections with porphyrinpathies.
delta-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA), a heme precursor accumulated in acute intermittent porphyria and saturnism, undergoes autoxidation leading to ammonium ion and probably the correspondingExpand

Generation of active oxygen species during coupled autoxidation of oxyhemoglobin and delta-aminolevulinic acid.
The conversion of oxyhemoglobin to methemoglobin has been shown via spectrophotometric, circular dichroism and polarographic studies to be accelerated by delta-aminolevulinic acid, a majorExpand

Increase in kinins on post-exercise hypotension in normotensive and hypertensive volunteers
Abstract Post-exercise hypotension is an important event for blood pressure regulation, especially in hypertensive individuals. Although post-exercise hypotension is a well-known phenomenon, theExpand

Effect of aspartate, asparagine, and carnitine supplementation in the diet on metabolism of skeletal muscle during a moderate exercise
The present study examined the effect of diet supplementation of oxaloacetate precursors (aspartate and asparagine) and carnitine on muscle metabolism and exercise endurance. The results suggest thatExpand

Oxygen toxicity related to exposure to lead.
We evaluated superoxide dismutase (EC 1.15.1.1) and glutathione peroxidase (EC 1.11.1.9) activities in the erythrocytes of lead-exposed and nonexposed workers from distinct industries localized inExpand

Characterization of cholesterol oxidation products formed by oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein.
Oxidative modification of LDL is evidenced by alterations in both the protein and lipid components of the particle. Progressive oxidation of the apoprotein is associated with loss of specific aminoExpand

Coulometric detection in high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis of cholesteryl ester hydroperoxides.
A highly sensitive and simple method for the determination of cholesteryl ester hydroperoxides (ChE-OOH) was developed using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with coulometricExpand

Vitamin C and Vitamin E in Prevention of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) in Choline Deficient Diet Fed Rats
AimOxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Vitamin C and vitamin E are known to react with reactive oxygen species (ROS) blocking theExpand

Nitrated lipids decompose to nitric oxide and lipid radicals and cause vasorelaxation.
Nitric oxide-derived oxidants such as nitrogen dioxide and peroxynitrite have been receiving increasing attention as mediators of nitric oxide toxicity. Indeed, nitrated and nitrosated compounds haveExpand
