Excess nitric oxide (NO) production occurs in several pathological states, including neurodegeneration, ischemia, and inflammation, and is generally accompanied by increased oxidative/nitrosative stress. Carnosine [β-alanine-histidine (β-Ala-His)] has been reported to decrease oxidative/nitrosative stress-associated cell damage by reducing the amount of NO(More)
It is well known that excessive production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species is linked to the development of oxidative stress-driven disorders. In particular, nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide (O2•-) play critical roles in many physiological and pathological processes. This article reports the use of 4-amino-5-methylamino-2',7'-difluorofluorescein(More)
We report the use of scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) in determining the heterogeneous electron transfer and homogeneous comproportionation kinetics of tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) in acetonitrile at Pt tip UMEs (radius 12.5–1 μm). TCNQ undergoes two consecutive one-electron reductions with comproportionation occurring between TCNQ2–, the(More)
Theoretical and experimental approaches to characterizing nanoelectrode (NE) ensembles of ultramicroelectrode dimensions (UME-NEEs) as a function of fraction of active area and random NE distribution are described. UME-NEEs were fabricated by addressing microregions of a gold-filled polycarbonate membrane through the UMEs of an underlying microfabricated(More)
