In the present study, we investigated the protective effect of zinc on the glucose-induced cytotoxicity in HeLa wild and HeLa-tat cells (30 and 20 mmol/l glucose, respectively). HeLa cells transfected with the protein Tat exhibit a lower antioxidant defense system. Incubation of HeLa wild and HeLa-tat cells with high glucose levels led to a rapid increase(More)
HeLa cell line stably transfected with the tat gene from human immunodeficiency virus type 1 has a decreased antioxidant potential. In this work, we used this model to investigate the effect of a high glucose level (20 mM) on the glucose induced cytotoxicity and on the antioxidant system. In comparison to cell culture under control medium, HeLa-wild cell(More)
