Cytoprotective effect of alpha-lipoic acid on paraquat-exposed human bronchial epithelial cells via activation of nuclear factor erythroid related factor-2 pathway.


Alpha-lipoic acid (LA), a metabolic antioxidant, is a natural compound and its biological function has been well studied in various human diseases. The present study was designed to investigate the cytoprotective effect and the molecular mechanisms of LA in paraquat (PQ)-induced oxidative stress injury using BEAS-2B human bronchial epithelial cells. LA co… (More)
