Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), are characterized by the deposition of misfolded proteins (alpha beta-peptide, alpha-synucleine and Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase, respectively). Oxidative stress is accompanied by the diminished level of catecholamines in neuronal tissue. Beside their role in transduction of nervous stimuli, catecholamines might act as antioxidants. Herein, we focused on the antioxidant activity of… CONTINUE READING
