BACKGROUND/AIM Accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) is a major cause of diabetes mellitus (DM) skin complications. Methylglyoxal (MGO), a reactive dicarbonyl compound, is a crucial intermediate of AGEs generation. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), an active ingredient of some medicines, can induce endogenous GSH and hydrogen sulfide generation,(More)
Hydrogen sulphide (H2 S) serves as a vital gastric mucosal defence under acid condition. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among widely prescribed medications with effects of antipyresis, analgesia and anti-inflammation. However, their inappropriate use causes gastric lesions and endogenous H2 S deficiency. In this work, we reported the(More)
A meta-analysis has suggested that vitamin D deficiency is involved in diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and the levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) are also decreased in type 2 diabetes. The injection of vitamin D induces cystathionine-β-synthase (CBS) expression and H2S generation. However, it remains unclear whether the supplementation of vitamin D(More)
Ammonium tetrathiomolybdate (TTM) was found to be a slow hydrogen sulfide (H2S) releasing agent. Its H2S generation capability in aqueous solutions was confirmed by UV-vis and fluorescence assays. TTM also showed H2S-like cytoprotective effects in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative damage in HaCaT cells.
