Oxidative stress is involved in the sarcopenia of aging muscles. On the grounds that ventilatory muscles are permanently active, and their activity may even increase with aging, we hypothesized that the levels of oxidative stress would probably be increased in the external intercostals of elderly healthy individuals. We conducted a case-control study in which reactive carbonyl groups, malondialdehyde-protein adducts, 3-nitrotyrosine immunoreactivity, Mn-superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD), and… CONTINUE READING
