To explore if protective effect of melatonin on oxidative stress induced by okadaic acid, an inhibitor of protein phosphatases PP1 and PP2A, is mediated by membrane receptors subtype mt1, we used anin vitro model with N1E-115 neuroblastoma cells. We demonstrated that exposure of cells to 50 nM okadaic acid for 2 h induces a reduction in the activity of(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of aerobic training (16 weeks – T1 and 24 weeks – T2) on oxidative stress biomarkers. To this end, GSH, GSH-peroxidase (GSH-Px) and catalase (CAT) activity were analysed in plasma. Nine bulls (3–4 years), were included in this work. The exercise training protocol was performed in a track (“taurodromo”) three(More)
In neurodegenerative diseases, progressive oxidative stress is a major event that precedes neuronal death. Oxidative stress is characterized by an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants. This imbalance induced oxidative molecular and cell damage, reducing cellular viability. 3-Nitropropionic acid (3NP) causes oxidative stress and other molecular and(More)
Progressive loss of neuronal cytoarchitecture is a major event that precedes neuronal death, both in neural aging and in neurodegenerative diseases. Cytoskeleton in neurodegenerative diseases is characterized by hyperphosphorylated tau assembled in neurofibrillary tangles. Tau protein promotes microtubule enlargement and its hyperphosphorylation inhibits(More)
Studies have shown anti-hyperlipidemic actions of melatonin, with pharmacological doses inducing changes in cholesterol levels. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of melatonin on adriamycin-induced (25mg/kg b.w., i.p.) hyperlipidemia under constant light exposure. Melatonin was injected i.p. (1000 μg/kg b.w./day). Triglycerides, total(More)
Ovarian hormone depletion in ovariectomized experimental animals is a useful model with which to study the physiopathological consequences of menopause in women. It has been suggested that menopause is a risk factor for the induction of several cardiovascular disorders. In the present study we analyzed the effects of ovarian hormone depletion by ovariectomy(More)
The effect of red wine on oxidative stress and hypercholesterolemia induced by feeding a high-cholesterol diet (supplemented with 1.65% of cholesterol (w/w) for 4 weeks) to female Wistar rats was examined. When red wine was simultaneously supplemented to high-cholesterol diet, total cholesterol, triglycerides, atherogenic index and lipid peroxidation(More)
