Redox regulation of cell functions by α-lipoate : biochemical and molecular aspects

Abstract

α-lipoate also known as thioctic acid, 1,2-dithiolane-3-pentanoic acid, 1,2-dithiolane-3-valeric acid or 6,8-thioctic acid has generated considerable clinical interest as a thiol-replenishing and redoxmodulating agent [16–18,27]. Lipoate has been used for a long time in Germany to treat complications associated with diabetes [11]. Recently, lipoate has also… (More)
