BACKGROUND Evaluation and investigation of the pro-oxidant role of the angiotensin-1 converting enzyme among Tunisian coronary. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study the angiotensin-1 converting enzyme (ACE1) was determined by a kinetic method for coronary and witness populations. These subjects (117 patients and 86 controls) beneficed also by an enzymatic determination of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and total antioxidant status (TAS) to reveal the… CONTINUE READING
