Diabetes mellitus induces a decrease in sodium potassium-adenosine triphosphatase (Na+/K(+)-ATPase) activity in several tissues in the rat and red blood cells (RBC) and nervous tissue in human patients. This decrease in Na+/K(+)-ATPase activity is thought to play a role in the development of long-term complications of the disease. Angiotensin enzyme(More)
Carvacrol (CVC) is a monoterpenic phenol, which is present in the essential oil of various plants. It has been widely used both as antibacterial feed additive and food preservative. Therefore, our objective was to evaluate the prophylactic effects of carvacrol on inflammatory mediators of sepsis. Serum tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin 6 levels as(More)
Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) and arginase are recently described inflammatory biomarkers associated with cardiovascular disease. In this study, we aimed to investigate the possible effects of serum Lp-PLA2 mass levels on arginase/nitric oxide (NO) pathway as a cardiovascular risk marker in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Forty-three HD(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with cirrhosis usually have thrombocytopenia in discrete levels. The mechanism of thrombocytopenia is thought as splenic sequestration and destruction of platelets, impaired bone marrow generation and diminished hepatic thrombopoietin synthesis. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate serum thrombopoietin levels and its(More)
New benzodioxole-based thiosemicarbazone derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxic effects on A549 human lung adenocarcinoma, C6 rat glioma and NIH/3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cells. In order to examine the correlation between anticancer activity and cholinesterases, the compounds were evaluated for their inhibitory effects on AChE(More)
In the present study, new pyrazoline derivatives were synthesized via the reaction of 1-(chloroacetyl)-3-(2-furyl)-5-aryl-2-pyrazolines with sodium salts of N,N-disubstituted dithiocarbamic acids. Each derivative was evaluated for its ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) using a modification of Ellman's(More)
In this study, we aimed to study the apoptotic effects of 2-[(9-ethyl-9H-carbazol-3-yl)amino]-2-oxoethyl N,N-disubstituted dithiocarbamates on A549 lung carcinoma and C6 glioma cell lines. Cytotoxicity analyses of DNA synthesis and detection of apoptosis by flow cytometry were evaluated to determine the anticancer activity of the compounds on both cell(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine whether the treatment of obstructed rat bladders with αlipoic acid (ALA) and silymarin reverses the biochemical and physiological responses to bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). A total of 32 adult Sprague Dawley rats were divided into four groups (n=8 per group): sham (placebo surgery) animals with no treatment(More)
The essential oil (EO) of the aerial parts of Rhanterium epapposum Oliv. (Asteraceae), was obtained by hydrodistillation. The oil was subsequently analyzed by both GC-FID and GC-MS, simultaneously. Forty-five components representing 99.2% of the oil composition were identified. The most abundant compounds were camphene (38.5%), myrcene (17.5%), limonene(More)
OBJECTIVES Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease and one of the most important health problems. Several factors may be responsible for the complications of diabetes mellitus including alterations in the activities of sodium-potassium adenosine triphosphatase (Na(+)/K(+) ATPase) and lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and also levels of nitric(More)
