The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different stress models on copper, zinc-superoxide dismutase (Cu,Zn-SOD), catalase (CAT) and selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase (Se-GSH-Px) activities, and reduced glutathione (GSH), protein carbonyl (PC) and lipid peroxidation marker (conjugated diene (CD) and thiobarbituric acid-reactive(More)
We determined the effects of immobilization stress on antioxidant status, protein oxidation and lipid peroxidation in brain, liver, kidney, heart and stomach of rats. Sixteen male Wistar rats (3 months old) were divided into controls (C) and immobilization stress group (IS). IS rats were immobilized for 180 min/day for 15 days. Plasma corticosterone levels(More)
Proinflammatory cytokines (such as interleukin-1beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha) and nitric oxide are known to have both direct and indirect modulating effects on neurons and neurotoxic neurotransmitters released during excitation or inflammation. We measured interleukin-1beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and nitrite levels in the peripheral blood and(More)
Metastasis is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in cancer. This process needs angiogenesis. The biology underlying cancer, metastasis, and angiogenesis has been investigated so as to determine the therapeutic targets. Invasive and metastatic cancer cells have undergone numerous genetic and epigenetic changes, manifested by cytoskeletal changes,(More)
OBJECTIVES Cerebral hypoperfusion in the contralateral cerebellar hemisphere after stroke is interpreted as a functional and metabolic depression, possibly caused by a loss of excitatory afferent inputs on the corticopontocerebellar pathway terminating in the cerebellar gray matter. This phenomenon is defined as crossed cerebellar diaschisis and can be(More)
The effect of sulfur dioxide (SO(2)) on somatosensory-evoked potentials (SEPs), thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), and the activities of Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and catalase (CAT) were investigated in young (3 months), middle-age (12 months), and old (24 months) Swiss male albino rats. Ten ppm SO(2)(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of vitamin E on stress-induced changes in visual evoked potentials (VEPs) and lipid peroxidation. METHODS Eight experimental groups of 10 rats per group were formed. These consisted of the control group (C); the group treated with vitamin E (E); groups exposed to cold stress (CS), immobilization(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of cold stress on antioxidant enzyme activities and examine protein oxidation and lipid peroxidation in various tissues (brain, liver, kidney, heart and stomach). Twenty male Wistar rats (3 months old) weighing 220 +/- 20 g were used. The rats were randomly divided into two groups of ten: the control group(More)
Tumor angiogenesis is a process where new blood vessels are formed from preexisting ones, resulting in several pathologies. Solid tumors induce angiogenesis to obtain the required nutrients and oxygen. Otherwise, tumors do not grow beyond 2 to 3 mm in diameter. Cyclooxygenase-2, an inducible enzyme important in inflammation, catalyzes the production of(More)
The effect of SO2 was examined on active avoidance learning, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), and the activities of Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and catalase (CAT) in young (3 months), middle-age (12 months ), and old (24 months) Swiss male albino rats. Ten ppm SO2 was administered to the animals of SO2(More)
