Increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) and lipid peroxidation may be implicated in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia by causing cell (membrane) damage and impaired endothelial function. Carbonyl derivatives of proteins, or protein carbonyls, may be sensitive biomarkers of ROS-mediated damage. The aim of the study was to compare levels of protein carbonyls… CONTINUE READING
