Efeitos do disseleneto de difenila em carpas expostas a uma formulação comercial contendo cipermetrina e clorpirifós
TLDR
Selenium presented protective action against the oxidative damage caused by exposure to the pesticide, increasing the activity of GPx, since the same is part of the structural formation of this enzyme. Expand

In vitro evaluation of glutathione peroxidase (GPx)-like activity and antioxidant properties of an organoselenium compound.
TLDR
It was concluded that Compound A catalyze the reduction of H2O2 with thiol was ∼2-fold more active than (PhSe)2) in both tBuOOH and H2 O2 systems when PhSH was used as a substrate. Expand
Disubstituted diaryl diselenides as potential atheroprotective compounds: Involvement of TrxR and GPx-like systems.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the antioxidant and antiatherogenic effects of DM and DC are related to formation of their selenol intermediates (RSeH) either by a direct reaction with endogenous thiols (GPx-like activity) or via their reduction by TrxR (using NADPH as electron donor). Expand
Avaliação do potencial terapêutico da Valeriana officinalis e do disseleneto de difenila frente à toxicidade induzida por rotenona em Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
In general, data showed that V. officinalis may be a promising neuroprotective agent, since it was effective in reducing the oxidative damage caused by different neurotoxic agents and toxic effects caused by rotenone exposure, and the use of this plant extract may be beneficial in reducing neurological disorders associated to the oxidative stress. Expand
Cooperation of Non-Effective Concentration of Glutamatergic System Modulators and Antioxidant Against Oxidative Stress Induced by Quinolinic Acid
TLDR
It is demonstrated that this combination could be effective to avoid toxic effects caused by high concentrations of QA, and the data obtained in the ROS formation and cellular viability assays suggest different pathways in amelioration ofQA toxicity present in the neurodegenerative process. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide induces apoptotic cell death and modulates ERK1/2 phosphorylation in human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells
TLDR
Data indicate a cytotoxic potential of (PhSe)2 in a neuronal cell line, which appears to be mediated by the ERK1/2 pathway. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide protects against hematological and immunological alterations induced by mercury in mice
TLDR
(PhSe)2 was effective in protecting against hematological and immunological alterations induced by mercury in mice, and was partially effective in preventing against the decrease in erythrocyte and platelet counts. Expand

TLDR
The development of new organochalcogens with higher thiol-peroxidase activity that can use other non-toxic thiol reducing agents, such as N-acetylcysteine instead of glutathione, will permit the investigation of the co-administration of organochAlcogens and thiols as a formulation for antioxidant therapy.
