This work investigated the effect of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) on disulfiram (DSF) induced oxidative stress in Chinese hamster fibroblast cells (V79). An increase in oxidative stress induced by DSF was observed up to a 200 μM concentration. It was evidenced by a statistically significant increase of both GSH(t) and GSSG levels, as well as elevated protein(More)
The role of antioxidant N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) in protection against cellular changes triggered by maneb during in vitro exposure was investigated in cultured Chinese hamster V79 cells. We observed high apoptotic activity and high oxidative stress induced by exposure to maneb evidenced by a statistically significant increase in lipid peroxidation(More)
One of the major lipid peroxidation products trans-4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), forms cyclic propano- or ethenoadducts bearing six- or seven-carbon atom side chains to G>C≫A>T. To specify the role of SOS DNA polymerases in HNE-induced mutations, we tested survival and mutation spectra in the lacZα gene of M13mp18 phage, whose DNA was treated in vitro with(More)
Oxidative stress is one of the major factors leading to Maneb- and Zineb-induced disorders. The aim of this in vitro study was to examine (i) the potency of Maneb and Zineb to induce changes in antioxidant enzyme activities in Chinese hamster fibroblasts V79 cells and (ii) the role of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) in the preventing their action. Maneb increased(More)
Sodium diethyldithiocarbamate (DETC) is the main metabolite of disulfiram. Recently, we reported that mechanism of disulfiram cytotoxicity in V79 cells might be partially connected with thiol redox-state imbalance. Here, we examined the effect of DETC on the level of intracellular glutathione (GSH), protein oxidation (measured as PC—protein carbonyl(More)
Thiram (TMTD) is a fungicidal and bactericidal agent used as antiseptic, seed disinfectant and animal repellent. In the light of known properties, thiram is considered to be used as an inhibitor of angiogenesis and/or inflammation. Since angiogenesis requires the growth of vascular endothelial cells we have used microvascular endothelial cell line HMEC-1 to(More)
Thiram (TMTD) is a widely used dithiocarbamate pesticide and fungicide and is one of potent contact allergens. In the light of known properties, thiram is also considered to be used as an inhibitor of inflammation. To investigate whether known pro-oxidative properties of thiram might be involved in immunogenic mechanisms, we carried out an in vitro study(More)
