In order to clarify the mechanism by polyphenols of protective effects against oxidative damage or by quinolinic acid of its neurotoxic and inflammatory actions, effects of polyphenols or quinolinic acid on the radical formation were examined. The ESR measurements showed that some polyphenols such as caffeic acid, catechol, gallic acid, D-(+)-catechin,(More)
The reaction of rat liver microsomes with Fe(3+), ADP and NADPH was examined using EPR, HPLC-EPR and HPLC-EPR-MS combined use of spin trapping technique. A prominent EPR spectrum (alpha(N) = 1.58 mT and alpha(H)beta = 0.26 mT) was observed in the complete reaction mixture. The EPR spectrum was hardly observed for the complete reaction mixture without rat(More)
The reaction of ram seminal vesicle (RSV) microsomes with arachidonic acid (AA) was examined using electron spin resonance (ESR), high performance liquid chromatography-electron spin resonance spectrometry (HPLC-ESR), and high performance liquid chromatography-electron spin resonance-mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESR-MS) combined use of spin trapping technique.
