The luminol-dependent chemiluminescence of macrophages during the zymosan-stimulated respiratory burst has been studied both in the absence and in the presence of the radical inhibitor 3,5 di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl propionic acid. In addition, the consumption of luminol and of the inhibitor has been followed analytically. Based on the rates of the(More)
Stem cells are believed to maintain a specific intracellular redox status through a combination of enhanced removal capacity and limited production of ROS. In the present study, we challenge this assumption by developing a quantitative approach for the analysis of the pro- and antioxidant ability of human embryonic stem cells in comparison with their(More)
