We examined the preventive activity of naturally occurring antioxidants against three reactive oxygen species using a protein degradation assay. The hydroxyl, hypochlorite, and peroxynitrite radicals are typical reactive oxygen species generated in human body. Previously, we found that hydrophobic botanical antioxidants exhibited specific antioxidant(More)
Here we present free amino acid profiles for Drosophila melanogaster adults. Imidazol dipeptides anserine and carnosine, which are abundant in mammalian muscle tissue, are not present in Drosophila. Dipeptide-enriched food altered the amino acid balance, suggesting that the free amino acid content is nutrition-dependent and probably mediated by dipeptides.
