BACKGROUND There is a growing evidence that reactive oxygen species (ROS) may cause many pathologic conditions including chronic diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer and aging. There are a number of methods to measure the total antioxidative activity of the serum. However, since the lifetime and oxidative activity of various types of ROS are all(More)
Acrolein is a major unsaturated aldehyde that is generated during the lipid peroxidation process. The measurement of acrolein in biological samples should be useful to estimate the degree of lipid peroxidation and to evaluate the effect of hazardous properties of acrolein on human health. In this study, a highly sensitive and selective high-performance(More)
4-Hydroxy-2-nonenal (4HNE) is a major aldehyde generated during lipid peroxidation. The clinical monitoring of 4HNE in biological fluids could be useful for the early diagnosis of several diseases involving lipid peroxidation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease and cancer. In this study, an HPLC with fluorescence detection method was(More)
For rapid identification of Escherichia coli, we evaluated Fluorocult MacConkey Agar, Fluorocult Laurylsulfate Broth and Bactident E. coli, which are incorporating fluorogenic substrate, MUG (4-methylumbeliferyl-beta-D-Glucuronide) that specifically reacts with E. coli. To assess the specificity and sensitivity of Fluorocult MacConkey Agar and Laurylsulfate(More)
