Estradiol-17beta as an antioxidant: some distinct features when compared with common fat-soluble antioxidants.
Estrogens are potent antioxidants both in vitro and in vivo. In this study the antioxidant affect of estradiol-17beta (estradiol) was compared with those of fat-soluble antioxidants (alpha-tocopherolExpand

Superior and distinct antioxidant effects of selected estrogen metabolites on lipid peroxidation.
The effect of the estrogen metabolites, 4-hydroxyestrone and 17alpha-dihydroequilin (metabolites of estradiol-17beta and equilin, respectively), were examined for antioxidant effects on plasma andExpand

Estrogens protect against hydrogen peroxide and arachidonic acid induced DNA damage.
The ability of estrogens to protect against DNA damage induced by either hydrogen peroxide or arachidonic acid alone or in combination with Cu2+ was investigated. DNA strand breaks were determined byExpand

Evidence for dissociation of chlorophyll b from the main light-harvesting complex in the oligomerization state isolated from marine alga, Bryopsis corticulans.
We investigated the composition and organization of chlorophylls in monomers, trimers and oligomers (small aggregates) of the main light-harvesting complex (LHC II) isolated from marine alga,Expand

Association of estrogens with human plasma lipoproteins: studies using estradiol-17beta and its hydrophobic derivative.
Estrogen replacement therapy is widely used to combat symptoms of menopause, but factors influencing the transport of estrogen in plasma and its cellular uptake have been explored only to a limitedExpand

Proteome analysis of an ectomycorrhizal fungus Boletus edulis under salt shock.
Soil salinization has become a severe global problem and salinity is one of the most severe abiotic stresses inhibiting growth and survival of mycorrhizal fungi and their host plants. SalinityExpand

Cholest-3,5-dien-7-one formation in peroxidized human plasma as an indicator of lipoprotein cholesterol peroxidation potential.
Lipoprotein peroxidation susceptibility is routinely evaluated using products of unsaturated fatty acids as markers (e.g., malonaldehyde). The significance and factors influencing peroxidation ofExpand
