We examined the effect of exercise-induced muscle soreness on maximal force generation, tissue nitric oxide (NO) and 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) content in human skeletal muscle. Female volunteers were assigned to control (C) and muscle soreness (MS) groups (n = 6 in each). MS group performed 200 eccentric muscle actions of the rectus femoris to induce(More)
The biochemical mechanisms by which regular exercise significantly benefits health and well being, including improved cognitive function, are not well understood. Four-week-old (young) and 14-month-old (middle aged) Wistar rats were randomly assigned to young control and young exercised, middle-aged control and middle-aged exercised groups. Exercise groups(More)
Both regular physical exercise and low levels of H(2)O(2) administration result in increased resistance to oxidative stress. We measured the accumulation of reactive carbonyl derivatives and the activities of proteasome complex and DT-diaphorase in cardiac muscle of trained and untrained rats after chronic i.p. administration of 1 ml t-butyl H(2)O(2) (1(More)
AIM Physical exercise requires adaptation from the airways, which includes bronchodilation. Prostaglandins are involved in airway regulation and their plasma level changes during exercise. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of symptom-limited exercise on the levels of prostaglandin E(2) (PGE2) and thromboxane B2 (TXB2) in the airways of(More)
New methods were developed for the separation of major lipid classes varying in polarity from cholesterol esters to lysophosphatidylcholine. The methods were used for the analysis of extracts obtained from human sera. The lipids were separated by overpressured thin-layer chromatography, classical thin-layer chromatography, and one-dimensional thin layer(More)
Serum binding, the effect on striatal dopamine release and the metabolism of (-)-deprenyl [N-methyl-N-propargyl(2-phenyl-1-methyl)ethylammonium chloride], TZ-650 [N-methyl-N-propargyl(2-phenyl)ethylammonium chloride] and J-508 [N-methyl-N-propargyl(indanyl)ammonium chloride] were investigated using various chromatographic methods. A strong interaction(More)
Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species generated either as products of aerobic metabolism or as a consequence of environmental mutagens, oxidatively modify DNA. Formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase (Fpg) and endonuclease III (endo III) or their functional mammalian homologues repair 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG) and damaged pyrimidines, respectively, to(More)
BACKGROUND In normal conditions, proteins are not present in the urine, however, exercise of long duration could result in proteinurea. Increased levels of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) are formed during exhaustive physical exercise and causes alterations to cellular proteins. MATERIALS In the present study serum and urinary nitrotyrosine(More)
Muscular exercise results in an increased production of free radicals and other forms of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Further, developing evidence implicates cytotoxins as an underlying etiology of exercise-induced stimuli in muscle redox status, which could result in muscle fatigue and/or injury. Two major classes of endogenous protective mechanisms(More)
