There is a body of evidence lending credence to the idea that oxidative stress may be responsible for age-related deleterious changes in brain function, and that protein carbonylation is a potential marker for such changes. An investigation of oxidative damage to mitochondrial proteins from aged rat brains was done using gel electrophoresis coupled with(More)
Ortho-quinones formed from catechol estrogens are considered prooxidants due to the production of superoxide radical anions through redox cycling via semiquinones. Para-quinols have been identified as novel metabolites of and as the major products of hydroxyl-radical scavenging by estrogens. Cycling of these compounds has also been discovered, because they(More)
