After fractionation of rabbit bone marrow into erythroid cells at different developmental stages adenylate cyclase activity of membrane ghosts was assayed in the presence of sodium fluoride, catecholamines or prostaglandins E. Both basal and fluoride-stimulated adenylate cyclase decreased continuously during differentiation. Only catecholamines having beta(More)
The anticancer drug tamoxifen inhibits lipid peroxidation in ox-brain phospholipid liposomes, and is a good antiyeast agent, with clinical potential. We now report that the ergosterol-containing lipid fraction derived from yeast microsomal membranes (and the ergosterol separated from it) inhibited lipid peroxidation when introduced into ox-brain(More)
Tamoxifen and 4-hydroxytamoxifen were both good inhibitors of iron-dependent lipid peroxidation in rat cardiac microsomes. Tamoxifen was also a good inhibitor of lipid peroxidation in liposomes prepared from the phospholipid obtained from rat liver microsomes. In a modified rat liver microsomal system containing a sufficiently low amount of peroxidizable(More)
Droloxifene (3-hydroxytamoxifen), is a triphenylethylene derivative recently developed for the treatment of breast cancer. Droloxifene was found to exhibit a membrane antioxidant ability in that it inhibited Fe(III)-ascorbate dependent lipid peroxidation in rat liver microsomes and ox-brain phospholipid liposomes. It also inhibited microsomal lipid(More)
