Oxidative stress occurs at altitude, and physical exertion might enhance this stress. In the present study, we investigated the combined effects of exercise and moderate altitude on redox balance in ten endurance exercising biathletes, and five sedentary volunteers during a 6-week-stay at 2,800 m. As a marker for oxidative stress, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)(More)
It is well known that altitude training stimulates erythropoiesis, but only few data are available concerning the direct altitude effect on red blood cell volume (RCV) in world class endurance athletes during exposure to continued hypoxia. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of three weeks of traditional altitude training at 2050 m on total(More)
Several genes for chromatin proteins are known in Archaea. These include histones and histone-like proteins in Euryarchaeota, and a DNA binding protein, Alba, which was first detected in the crenarchaeote Sulfolobus solfataricus and is thought to be involved in transcriptional regulation. The methanogenic archaeon Methanococcus voltae harbors four genes(More)
We are replying to Dr. Böning’s comments to our recently published paper on oxidative stress parameters at moderate altitude (Heinicke et al. 2009). Half cell redox potential for the couple reduced (GSH)-oxidized (GSSG) glutathione is widely accepted as a reliable measure of the intracellular redox state (Schafer and Buettner 2001). Alterations in the(More)
