The measurement of cellular and sub-cellular responses to chemical contaminants (referred to as biomarkers) in living organisms represents a recent tool in environmental monitoring. The review focuses on carbonic anhydrase, a ubiquitous metalloenzyme which plays key roles in a wide variety of physiological processes involving CO(2) and HCO(3)(-). In the(More)
Carbonic anhydrase (CA; EC 4.2.1.1) is a zinc metalloenzyme catalysing the reversible hydration of CO2 to produce H+ and HCO3−. Its activity is virtually ubiquitous in nature. The fundamental role of this biochemical reaction in diverse biological systems has driven the evolution of several distinct and unrelated families of CAs. Five CA families, referred(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effect of the daily ingestion of a purified anthocyanin extract from red grape skin on rat serum antioxidant capacity (ORAC) and its safety for the intestinal epithelium. The study was carried out in rats orally administered with the extract for 10 days in either normal physiological conditions or exposed to a(More)
