Hyperhomocysteinemia has been identified as an important and independent risk factor for cerebral, coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis. However the mechanisms by which homocysteine promote atherosclerotic plaque formation are not clearly defined. Earlier reports have suggested that homocysteine exert its effect via the H2O2 produced during its(More)
Redox mediated signaling mechanisms play crucial roles in the pathogenesis of several cardiovascular diseases. Atherosclerosis is one of the most important disorders induced mainly by hypercholesterolemia. Oxidation products and related signaling mechanisms are found within the characteristic biomarkers of atherosclerosis. Several studies have shown that(More)
The development of atherosclerosis is a multifactorial process in which both elevated plasma cholesterol levels and proliferation of smooth muscle cells play a central role. Numerous studies have suggested the involvement of oxidative processes in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and especially of oxidized low density lipoprotein. Some epidemiological(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a global health problem and lead to subacute liver failure, cirrhosis and/or hepatocellular carcinoma. An increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant depletion is found in the liver of obese patients with NAFLD. Irisin is a recently identified exercise-induced myokine. It increases total(More)
Proteasomal degradation of oxidized proteins is a crucial mechanism to prevent the accumulation of cellular damage. The removal of the damage is generally a required process for healthy organisms to keep the integrity while in cancer cells the situation may be different. In normal conditions, cancer cells have higher proteasome activity compared to normal(More)
Colon carcinoma is the third among the cancer related deaths. The role of pro-apoptotic Bax protein on the resveratrol related apoptosis, mitochondrial membrane potential and signal pathways has not been identified in colon carcinoma cells. In this direction, HCT-116 bax positive and HCT-116 negative cell lines were utilized to detect the apoptotic effect(More)
