One parameter which might provide an insight into the underlying mechanism of the effect of formaldehyde (FA) inhalation on testicular tissue, is the assessment of heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70), which increases promptly in cells exposed to stress caused by chemical toxicity. Thus, following subchronic exposure at cytotoxic concentrations, we studied the immunohistochemical effect of FA inhalation on changes in Hsp70 content in testicular tissue. We used 18 albino Wistar rats divided into three groups, exposed to 0 (control), 5 and 10 ppm FA gas for a total of 91 days, 8 h/day, five days a week. Serum testosterone levels were determi . . .ned using a chemiluminescent enzyme immunoassay. Testicular tissues were stained with Hematoxylin-Eosine and Hsp70 immunohistochemically performed. Diameters of seminiferous tubules and serum testosterone levels in animals inhaling FA were significantly decreased. In seminiferous epithelium stained for Hsp70, compared to those in the control group, the spermatogenetic cells in the experimental groups demonstrated an obvious increase in immunoreaction spermatides in the adluminal region and especially in the cytoplasm of spermatocytes. Immunoreaction of Hsp70 was detected in the spermatogonias of animals exposed to FA inhalation as opposed to those of the control group. Compared to the control, there was a significant increase in the immunoreactions observed not only in the cytoplasm of primary spermatocytes, but also spermatides in the adluminal region of the seminiferous tubules. In conclusion, FA gas may damage spermatogenetic cells and increase Hsp70 synthesis. © 2005, Sage Publications. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Aims Oxidative stress and inflammatory response are major factors causing several tissue injuries in intestinal ischemia and reperfusion (I/R). Agmatine has been reported to attenuate I/R injury of various organs. The present study aims to analyze the possible protective effects of agmatine on intestinal I/R injury in rats. Main methods Four groups were designed: sham control, agmatine-treated control, I/R control, and agmatine-treated I/R groups. IR injury of small intestine was induced by the occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery for half an hour to be followed by a 3-hour-long reperfusion. Agmatine (10 mg/kg) was administer . . .ed intraperitoneally before reperfusion period. After 180 min of reperfusion period, the contractile responses to both carbachol and potassium chloride (KCl) were subsequently examined in an isolated-organ bath. Malondialdehyde (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH), and the activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO) were measured in intestinal tissue. Plasma cytokine levels were determined. The expression of the intestinal inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) was also assessed by immunohistochemistry. Key findings The treatment with agmatine appeared to be significantly effective in reducing the MDA content and MPO activity besides restoring the content of GSH. The treatment also attenuated the histological injury. The increases in the I/R induced expressions of iNOS, IFN-?, and IL-1? were brought back to the sham control levels by the treatment as well. Significance Our findings indicate that the agmatine pretreatment may ameliorate reperfusion induced injury in small intestine mainly due to reducing inflammatory response and oxidative stress. © 2017 Elsevier Inc Daha fazlası Daha az

Oxygen free radicals and lipid peroxidation may play significant roles in the progress of injury induced by chronic cerebral hypoperfusion of the central nervous system. Rosiglitazone, a well known activator of PPAR?, has neuroprotective properties in various animal models of acute central nervous system damage. In the present study, we evaluate the possible impact of rosiglitazone on chronic cerebral hypoperfused-rats in regard to the levels of oxidative stress, reduced glutathione, and hippocampal neuronal damage. Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion was generated by permanent ligation of both common carotid arteries of Wistar rats for . . .one month. Animals in treatment group were given rosiglitazone orally at doses of 1.5, 3, or 6 mg/kg per day of the 1 month duration. The treatment significantly lowered the levels of both malondialdehyde and neuronal damage, while elevated the reduced glutathione level markedly. These findings suggest that the beneficial effect of rosiglitazone on hypoperfusion-induced hippocampal neuronal damage might be the result of inhibition of oxidative insult. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Objectives: Resveratrol appears to have neuroprotective potential in various animal models of brain disorders including cerebral ischemia and neurodegenerative diseases. Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion is a well-known pathological condition contributing to the neurodegenerative diseases such as vascular dementia. Purpose of the present study is to evaluate the possible therapeutic potential of resveratrol in a model of vascular dementia of ovariectomized female rats. Assessment of the potential was based on the determination of brain oxidative status, caspase-3 level, glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), and neuronal damage on hip . . .pocampus and cerebral cortex. Methods: For creating the model of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion, ovariectomized female Wistar rats were subjected to the modified two vessel occlusion method, with the right common carotid artery being occluded first and the left one a week later. Results: At the 15th day following the ligation, neuronal damage was accompanied by the increased immunoreactivities of both GFAP and caspase-3, and significant neurodegeneration was evident in the hippocampus and cortex, all of which were significantly alleviated with resveratrol treatment (10 mg/kg). Biochemical analysis revealed that the resveratrol treatment decreased lipid peroxidation and restored reduced glutathione level as well. Discussion: The collected data of the present study suggest that the administration of resveratrol may provide a remarkable therapeutic benefit for vascular dementia, which is most likely related to the prevention of both apoptotic cell death and oxidative stress. We believe that therapeutic efficacy of resveratrol deserves to be tested for potential clinical application in postmenopausal elderly women suffering from vascular dementia. © 2015 W. S.

Free radicals derived from molecular oxygen have been reported to be responsible for changes in motility and mucosal damage observed in intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury. Melatonin has been considered as an antioxidant that prevents injuries resulted from I/R in various tissues. The present study was designed to determine the effect of melatonin on the contractile responses of acetylcholine (Ach) and KCl, on malondialdehyde (MDA), a product of lipid peroxidation, and reduced glutathione (GSH) levels and to assess histopathological changes in the smooth muscle of terminal ileum subjected to ischemia-reperfusion. The intestinal i . . .schemia-reperfusion was induced by occlusion of superior mesenteric artery of rat for 30 min, followed by a period of reperfusion for 3 h. Melatonin at doses of 10 or 50 mg/kg was administered via the tail vein in 5 min prior to reperfusion. Following reperfusion, segments of terminal ileum were rapidly taken and transferred into isolated organ bath and responses to Ach and KCl were recorded. Samples of terminal ileum were also taken for measuring the MDA and GSH levels. EC50 values of these contracting substances were seriously reduced in the ischemia-reperfusion group compared to that of the sham-operated control group. The decreased contraction response to Ach and KCl was significantly ameliorated by a dosage of 50 mg/kg of melatonin, while not by a dosage of 10 mg/kg. Similar pattern of the effect was observed in the tissue levels of MDA and GSH as well as in histological improvement. Melatonin appeared to be restoring the amounts of tissue MDA and GSH back to about control levels. These results suggest that the high dose of melatonin not only physiologically but also biochemically and morphologically could be useful to normalize contractility injured by oxidative stress in intestinal ischemia-reperfusion. © 2004 Elsevier Inc.

Objective: Previous studies demonstrated that acute in vitro exposure of corpus cavernosal tissue to ethanol decreased its response to field stimulation and pharmacological stimulation. In the present study we investigated the effects of chronic ethanol consumption on the ultrastructure of cavernosal smooth muscle cells, elastic fibres and collagen content. Material and methods: Fourteen adult wistar rats were divided into a control group (n = 7, fed a standard diet and tap water) and an alcoholic group (n = 7, fed a standard diet and 5% (v/v) ethanol in drinking water and by increasing the ethanol concentration for every week, at t . . .he end of 6th week 30% (v/v) ethanol concentration was attained. Same dose was given until 12th week. At the end of 12th week blood samples were obtained and the ethanol concentrations were determined. The cavernosal tissues were obtained and immunohistochemical examinations were performed. Results: Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that chronic ethanol exposure markedly decreased the content of smooth muscle cells, elastic fibres and collagen type 4. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that in this animal model chronic ethanol exposure decreases the percentage of staining for smooth muscle actin, elastin, and collagen type 4 which are the key structures fundamental for erection. © Springer 2006 Daha fazlası Daha az

Background: Spironolactone (Sp), a mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, protects against the ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury of retina, kidney, heart, and brain. We aimed to investigate the effects of Sp on intestinal IR injury.Methods Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into: (1) a sham control group; (2) an IR control group, subjected to 30 min ischemia and 3 h reperfusion; (3) a group treated with Sp (20 mg/kg) for 3 d before the IR; and (4) a sham-operated control group treated with Sp (20 mg/kg). After the reperfusion, blood and intestinal tissue samples were collected to evaluate histopathologic state, neutrophil infiltr . . .ation (by measuring myeloperoxidase activity), levels of the cytokines (tumor necrosis factor ?, interleukin 1? [IL-1?], interferon ?, monocyte chemotactic protein-1, granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor, and IL-4), malondialdehyde (MDA) and reduced glutathione contents, and immunohistochemical expressions of nuclear factor ?B, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), and caspase-3. Results MDA content, myeloperoxidase activity, and plasma levels of tumor necrosis factor ?, IL-1?, and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 were all elevated in IR, indicating the oxidative stress and local and systemic inflammatory response. Sp administration markedly reduced the MDA content and the cytokine levels. The pretreatment alleviated intestinal injury, neutrophil infiltration, and the expressions of caspase-3, iNOS, and NF?B.Conclusions: The results implicate that Sp may have a strong protective effect against the intestinal IR injury. The effect can be mediated via suppression of both systemic inflammatory response and apoptosis through amelioration of oxidative stress and generation of proinflammatory cytokines, iNOS, caspase-3, and nuclear factor ?B. Therefore, mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism might be of potential therapeutic benefit in cases of intestinal IR damage. © 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Article | 2016 | Clinical and Investigative Medicine39 ( 1 ) , pp.350 - 361

Purpose: Multiple organ failure, including acute lung injury, is a common complication of intestinal ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury and contributes to its high mortality rate. Activated polymorphonuclear neutrophils and reactive oxygen species contribute to the lung injury caused by intestinal I/R. Mineralokortikoid receptor antagonist spironolactone has a protective effect against I/R injury in animal models of retina, kidney, heart, and brain. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of aldosteron receptor blocker spironolactone on lung injury induced by intestinal I/R. Methods: Wistar albino rats were divi . . .ded into four groups: (1) sham control; (2) intestinal I/R (30 min of ischemia by superior mesenteric artery occlusion followed by 3 h of reperfusion); (3) spironolactone pretreatment (20 mg/kg) + I/R; and, (4) spironolactone pretreatment without I/R. Spironolactone was given orally 3 days prior to intestinal I/R. A marker for lipid peroxidation (malondialdehyde; MDA), an indicator or oxidation state (reduced glutathione; GSH), an index of polymorphonuclear neutrophil sequestration (myeloperoxidase; MPO), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) immunoreactivity, and the histopathology of the lung tissue were analyzed. Results: Spironolactone pretreatment markedly reduced intestinal I/R-induced lung injury as indicated by histology and MDA and MPO levels. Moreover, the pretreatment decreased the iNOS immunoreactivity. Conclusion: The present study strongly suggests that spironolactone pretreatment decreased neutrophil infiltration, iNOS induction, oxidative stress, and histopathological injury in an experimental model of intestinal I/R induced-lung injury of rats. © 2016 CIM Daha fazlası Daha az

BACKGROUND: One of the important risk factors for dementia is chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH) especially in patients with cerebrovascular disease. OBJECTIVES: In the present study, using rat model of bilateral common carotid artery occlusion, the possible protective effects of ethyl pyruvate (EP) have been explored in terms of memory impairment, oxidative stress, and levels of caspase-3, Na-K ATPase, and IL- 1ß. METHODS: Rats were treated with EP (50 mg/kg, i.p) for 4 weeks. Cognitive function was evaluated by Morris Water Maze (MWM). Both levels of caspase-3 and Na-K ATPase in tissue, IL-1ß in plasma were measured by ELISA met . . .hod. Status of oxidative stress in brain was assessed by the measurements of the tissue malondialdehyde (MDA) and reduced glutathione (GSH) contents. RESULTS: Results showed that CCH caused a striking impairment of spatial working memory, accompanied with increased levels of MDA and IL-1ß as well as caspase 3 level. The treatment with EP, however, significantly improved the memory impairment. Moreover, the treatment also provided beneficial effects on the disturbances of caspase 3, IL-1ß and MDA. CONCLUSION: This study strongly imply that the EP administration can alleviate the memory impairment observed due to CCH. The protection provided by EP may result from inhibition of inflammatory response, apoptotic processes and oxidative stress. © 2018, Comenius University Daha fazlası Daha az

Diabetes is associated with depression and anxiety symptoms. The current investigation was designed to explore the effect of melatonin on depressive and anxiety like-behaviours, oxidative stress, levels of AGE, RAGE and S100B in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The animals were divided into four groups: Normoglycemic; Normoglycemic + melatonin; diabetic; diabetic + melatonin (10 mg/kg, for 4 weeks). The malondialdehyde (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH), AGE, RAGE and S100B were measured and the depressive and anxiety like-behaviours were assessed by forced swimming and elevated plus maze tests, respectively. Melatonin ameliorate . . .s depressive and anxiety like-behaviours. Concomitantly, melatonin reversed diabetes induced increase of MDA, AGE and decrease of GSH and S100B levels in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. In conclusion, our results showed that melatonin administration may exert antidepressant-like and anxiolytic effects in diabetic rats through normalising of AGE/RAGE, S100B and oxidative stress in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus. © 2019, © 2019 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group Daha fazlası Daha az

To diversify edible-oil polymer composite, polymeric linoleic acid (PLina) peroxide was obtained by the auto-oxidation of linoleic acid in a simple way for use as a macroinitiator in free radical polymerization of vinyl monomers. Peroxidation, epoxidation, and/or perepoxidation reactions of linoleic acid under air at room temperature resulted in PLina, having soluble fraction more than 91 weight percent (wt%), with molecular weight ranging from 1,644 to 2,763 Da, and containing up to 1.0 wt% of peroxide. PLina initiated the free radical polymerization of ether styrene (S), methyl methacrylate (MMA), or n-butyl methacrylate (nBMA) to . . . give PLina-g-polystyrene (PS), PLina-g-poly-MMA (PMMA), and PLina-g-poly- nBMA (PnBMA) graft copolymers. The polymers obtained were characterized by proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and gel permeation chromatography (GPC) techniques. Microstructure of the graft copolymers was observed by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Graft copolymers obtained contained polymeric linoleic acid in a range between 8.5 and 19.3 mol percent (mol%). PLina-g-PS, PLina-g-PMMA and PLina-g-PnBMA graft copolymer samples were also used in cell culture studies. Fibroblast and macrophage cells were strongly adhered and spread on the copolymer film surfaces. These newly synthesized copolymers were tested for their effects on human blood protein adsorption compared with PMMA graft copolymers containing polymeric soybean oil and polymeric linseed oil; interestingly we observed a dramatic decrease in the protein adsorption on the linoleic acid graft copolymer, which is important in tissue engineering. © AOCS 2007 Daha fazlası Daha az

Amaç: Adenozin ve adenozin A1 reseptör agonistleri, çeşitli dokuların reperfüzyon harabiyetine karşı önkoşullanma yoluyla koruyucu etkiler göstermektedir. Çalışmanın amacı, sıçan ince bağırsağının reperfüzyon harabiyeti üzerine adenozin A1/A2 reseptör aktivasyonunun etkilerini incelemekti. Yöntemler: Denekler herbiri rastgele sekiz hayvan içeren dört gruba ayrıldı: sham kontrol, iskemi-reperfüzyon kontrol, 5’-N-etilkarboksiamidoadenozin (NECA) (non-selektif A1 /A2 agonisti, 0.1 mg/kg, i.v.) tedavili iskemi-reperfüzyon ve teofilin (non-selektif A1 /A2 antagonisti, 20 mg/kg, i.v.) tedavili iskemi-reperfüzyon. Tedaviler iskemi yapılmad . . .an 5 dk önce uygulandı. Süperiyor mezenter arter 30 dk klempe edildikten sonra reperfüzyon dönemi 180 dk sürdü. Terminal ileum segmentlerinin, KCl, karbakol ve substans P’ye olan kasılma yanıtlarının kaydedilmesinin yanısıra, dokuların miyeloperoksidaz, malondialdehit ve indirgenmiş glutatyon miktarları da ölçüldü. Bulgular: İskemi, nötrofil infiltrasyonu ve lipid peroksidasyonunu ileri düzeyde yükseltirken aynı zamanda indirgenmiş glutatyonu düşürdü. Sham control grubuy- la karşılaştırıldığında, kasılma yanıtları iskemi-reperfüzyon grubunda ciddi düzeyde azaldı. NECA ön tedavisi, doku indirgenmiş glutatyon miktarını ileri derecede düzeltti ve ayrıca iskemi-reperfüzyon sonucu azalmış kasılma yanıtını kısmen iyileştirdi. Teofilin ile ön tedavi ise herhangi koruyucu bir etki göstermedi. Sonuç: Adenozin A1 /A2 reseptör aktivasyonunun, iskemi sonucu gelişen bağırsak kasılma bozukluğuna karşı kısmi koruma sağladığını ve ayrıca bu korumanın, indirgenmiş glutatyon düzeyinin fizyolojik seviyede tutulması yolu ile muhtemelen gerçekleştiğine dair ek kanıt önermekteyiz. Objectives: Adenosine and adenosine A1 receptor agonists exert protective effects against reperfusion injury in different tissues by mediating preconditioning. The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of adenosine A1 /A2 receptor activation on reperfusion-induced small intestinal injury in rat. Methods: Animals were randomized into four groups each including eight as following: sham control, ischemia-reperfusion control, 5’-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine (NECA) (non-selective A1 /A2 agonist, 0.1 mg/kg, i.v.)-treated I/R, and theophylline (non-selective A1 /A2 antagonist, 20 mg/kg, i.v.)-treated I/R groups. The treatments were administered 5 min before inducing ischemia in which superior mesenteric artery was clamped for 30 min followed by 180 min of reperfusion pe- riod. Myeloperoxidase, malondialdehyde, and reduced glutathione contents of terminal ileum samples were measured besides recording contractile responses to KCl, carbachol and substance P. Results: Ischemic insult significantly increased neutrophil infiltration and lipid peroxidation while decreasing the reduced glutathione. Contractile responses were seriously reduced in I/R group compared to that of the sham control group. NECA pretreatment alleviated the tissue content of reduced glutathione remarkably besides providing partial amelioration of I/R-reduced contractile response, while theophylline pretreatment had no any protective effect. Conclusion: We offer additional evidence that activation of A1 /A2 adenosine receptors provides partial protection against ischemia-induced intestinal contractile dysfunction possibly through maintaining reduced glutathione content at physiological levels Daha fazlası Daha az
