Effect of captopril on mushroom tyrosinase activity in vitro.

Captopril ameliorates toxicity induced by paraquat in mitochondria isolated from the rat liver.

Protective effects of captopril against ischemic stress: role of cellular Mg.

The data suggest that Mg influences the cellular response to ischemia and that the ability of SH compounds such as captopril to ameliorate ischemic injury may at least in part be attributable to the able of such compounds to increase cytosolic free Mg levels.

Characterization of the reaction products, kinetics and mechanism of oxidation of the drug captopril by platinum(IV) complexes

The rate constants for the rate-determining steps have been derived, demonstrating that the fully deprotonated captopril is about 105 to 106 times more reactive than its corresponding thiol form toward the Pt(IV) complexes.

DOES CAPTOPRIL CHANGE OXIDATIVE STRESS IN PUROMYCIN AMINONUCLEOSIDE NEPHROPATHY?

Data suggest that PAN changes the antioxidative factor pattern in rat blood and kidney and only to a certain extent modifies these effects showing protective effect only on tissue catalase activity.

Does captopril attenuate reperfusion‐induced myocardial dysfunction by scavenging free radicals?

Results indicate that captopril scavenges superoxide anions in vitro independent of an action on ACE, which is probably related to the presence of a sulfhydryl moiety.
