Evaluation of the antioxidant activity of melatonin in vitro.
Melatonin is being increasingly promoted as a treatment for "jet lag" and insomnia and has been suggested to act as an antioxidant in vivo. The antioxidant and potential pro-oxidant activities ofExpand

Effect of overexpression of BCL-2 on cellular oxidative damage, nitric oxide production, antioxidant defenses, and the proteasome.
Bcl-2 is a gene family involved in the suppression of apoptosis in response to a wide range of cellular insults. Multiple papers have suggested a link between Bcl-2 and oxidative damage/antioxidantExpand

The neuronal toxicity of sulfite plus peroxynitrite is enhanced by glutathione depletion: implications for Parkinson's disease.
In Parkinson's disease (PD) and incidental Lewy body disease glutathione levels in the substantia nigra are decreased by 40-50%. Both peroxynitrite (ONOO ) and alterations in the metabolism ofExpand

Upregulation of the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 may be an early event in neurodegeneration: studies on Parkinson's and incidental Lewy body disease.
Apoptosis and oxidative stress have been suggested to be involved in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, whether this is a cause or consequence of neurodegeneration is unknown. Incidental Lewy BodyExpand
