BACKGROUND Previous experiments have shown that granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), quantified in the follicular fluid (FF) of individual oocytes, correlates with the potential for an ongoing pregnancy of the corresponding fertilized oocytes among selected transferred embryos. Here we present a proof of concept study aimed at evaluating the(More)
Exposure of human proliferative cells to subcytotoxic stress triggers stress-induced premature senescence (SIPS) which is characterized by many biomarkers of replicative senescence. Proteomic comparison of replicative senescence and stress-induced premature senescence indicates that, at the level of protein expression, stress-induced premature senescence(More)
In this work, stable overexpression of peroxiredoxin VI was generated in WI-38 human diploid fibroblasts using a retrovirus-mediated transfection system. Estimation of cell survival showed that peroxiredoxin VI provides a significant protection against tert-butylhydroperoxide- or UVB-caused cytotoxicity. No protection was found against ethanol- or(More)

Peroxiredoxin VI (PrxVI) is a bifunctional enzyme with non-selenium glutathione peroxidase and Ca2+-independent acidic phospholipase A2 activities. We demonstrate that transfection-mediated PrxVI overexpression protects immortalized human WI-38 and murine NIH3T3 fibroblasts against cytotoxic doses of tert-butylhydroperoxide and H2O2. Mutants for either(More)
