Reaction of the free-radical diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH(.)) with Trolox (TrOH) was investigated in buffered hydroalcoholic media by using a stopped-flow system. DPPH was reduced to the hydrazine analogue DPPH-H with a measured stoichiometry of about 2. DPPH-H was characterized by an acid-base equilibrium (pKa = 8.6). Time-resolved absorption spectra(More)
The reaction between the anaesthetic agent 2,6-diisopropylphenol (propofol, PPF) and singlet oxygen (1O2) has been investigated in aqueous solution by means of HPLC, GC, absorption spectroscopy and laser flash photolysis with infrared luminescence detection. The rate constants for the physical and chemical quenching of 1O2 by PPF (kPPF) are found to be 2.66(More)
The interaction of deuteroporphyrin with dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine unilamellar vesicles of various sizes (ranging from 38 to 222 nm) has been studied using a stopped flow with fluorescence detection. Beside the kinetics of porphyrin incorporation into vesicles, the transfer of porphyrin from vesicles to human serum albumin has been investigated both(More)
7H-Dibenzo[c,g]carbazole (DBC) is an environmental pollutant that produces DNA adducts and tumors in mouse liver and skin following subcutaneous injection and topical application. The two synthetic derivatives 5,9-dimethyl-DBC (DMDBC) and N7-methyl-DBC (NMDBC) induce tissue-specific lesions. DNA adducts and tumors are observed only in liver following(More)
The toxicity of halogenated alkanes originates from their metabolism by cytochrome P-450 which leads to the formation of reactive intermediates. In particular, peroxyl radicals derived from the halogenated compounds are believed to induce peroxidative chain degradation of lipids. To examine this hypothesis, radical reactions in a system involving(More)
RÉSUMÉ A partir d'un échantillon de 2 657 femelles et de 1515 mâles castrés, les paramètres génétiques, héritabilités et corrélations génétiques, de la race porcine Large White française ont été estimés pour la consommation d'aliment et la durée d'engraissement de 25 à 100 kilogrammes de poids vif, le poids de différents morceaux et des mesures de longueur(More)
The interactions of cis-di-sulfonated aluminum phthalocyanine (PcS(2)Al) with dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) unilamellar vesicles have been investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy. At pH 7.0, PcS(2)Al incorporates into the vesicles with a high affinity constant (2.7x10(6) M(-1), in terms of phospholipid concentration). The fluorescence changes(More)
The transfer of a dicarboxylic porphyrin from phosphatidylcholine fluid-phase unilamellar vesicles towards albumin is studied focusing on bilayer thickness and pH effects. The kinetics of this process yield the rate constants for the porphyrin flip-flop from the inner to the outer hemileaflet and its exit towards aqueous medium. Phospholipids with(More)
The effect of pH on the transfer of deuteroporphyrin from dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) unilamellar vesicles to human serum albumin is investigated using a stopped-flow with fluorescence detection. The kinetics of this process allows for the determination of the rate constants for the porphyrin exist from the outer vesicle layer to the bulk aqueous(More)
