Methylglyoxal at a concentration of 5 mM caused a significant inhibition of superoxide anion radical (O2 ·-) comparable to the effect of Tirone. In the process of O2 ·- generation in the system of egg phosphatidylcholine liposome peroxidation induced by the azo-initiator AIBN, a marked inhibition of chemiluminescence in the presence of 100 mM methylglyoxal(More)
Dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs) are physiological NO derivatives and account for many NO functions in biology. Polyfunctional dipeptide carnosine (beta-alanyl-l-histidine) is considered to be a very promising pharmacological agent. It was shown that in the system containing carnosine, iron ions and Angeli’s salt, a new type of DNICs bound with carnosine(More)
Pathways of synthesis of the α-reactive carbonyl compound methylglyoxal (MG) in prokaryotes are described in this review. Accumulation of MG leads to development of carbonyl stress. Some pathways of MG formation are similar for both pro- and eukaryotes, but there are reactions specific for prokaryotes, e.g. the methylglyoxal synthase reaction. This reaction(More)
