Methylglyoxal (MG) is a potent cytotoxin being produced primarily as result of non-enzymatic reactions in the living systems. The toxicity of MG is believed to be due to its ability to carry out glycation of proteins, nucleic acids and phospholipids. MG can readily modify proteins and nucleic acids, forming advanced glycation end-products which results in cellular dysfunction. In order to limit MG levels, several detoxification enzymes exist in the living systems which can metabolize MG. Of… CONTINUE READING
