The cause of the pregnancy condition preeclampsia (PE) is thought to be endothelial dysfunction caused by oxidative stress. As abnormal glucose tolerance has also been associated with PE, we use a fluorinated-mimic of this metabolite to establish whether any oxidative damage to lipids and proteins in the erythrocyte membrane has increased cell membrane permeability. Data were acquired using (19)F Dynamic-NMR (DNMR) to measure exchange of 3-fluoro-3-deoxyglucose (3-FDG) across the membrane of erythrocytes from 10 pregnant women (5 healthy control women, and 5 from women suffering from PE)...

Several studies suggest that chronic hyperuricemia, the main precursor of gout, is involved in the pathogenesis of different systemic disorders that affect cardiovascular and renal systems, such as hypertension, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, chronic heart failure, and chronic kidney disease. Recent epidemiological evidence has shown an increasing trend in the prevalence of hyperuricemia and gout in the Western world: a number of population-based studies estimate a prevalence of up to 21% for hyperuricemia and 1%-4% for gout...

Hepatocytes release extracellular vesicles (EVs) loaded with signaling molecules and enzymes into the bloodstream. Although the importance of EVs in the intercellular communication is already recognized, the metabolic impact of the enzymes carried by these vesicles is still unclear. We evaluated the global effect of the enzymatic activities of EVs by performing untargeted metabolomic profiling of serum samples after their exposure to EVs. This approach revealed a significant change in the abundance of 94 serum metabolic signals...

OBJECTIVES: Preterm neonates are born while nephrogenesis is ongoing and are commonly exposed to factors in a hyperoxic environment that can impair renal development. Oxidative stress has also been implicated in the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The rat model of oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) is the most clinically relevant model of ROP because its biologic features closely resemble those of ROP in preterm infants. We investigated impaired renal development in a rat model of OIR...

Oxidative stress plays a pivotal role in developing and accelerating retinal diseases including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy (DR), and retinal vein occlusion (RVO). An excess amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) can lead to functional and morphological impairments in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), endothelial cells, and retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Here we demonstrate that edaravone, a free radical scavenger, decreased apoptotic cell death, oxidative damage to DNA and lipids, and angiogenesis through inhibiting JNK and p38 MAPK pathways in AMD, glaucoma, DR, and RVO animal models...

Arterial stiffness, the expression of reduced arterial elasticity, is an effective predictor of cardiovascular disorders. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between exposure to toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant systems. The increase in reactive nitrogen species (RNS) is termed nitrosative stress. We review the main mechanisms and products linking arterial stiffness with oxidative and nitrosative stress in several disorders, focusing on recent experimental and clinical data, and the mechanisms explaining benefits of antioxidant therapy...

Endothelial function and microvesicle concentration changes after acute bouts of continuous eccentric exercise have not been assessed previously nor compared to concentric exercise at similar aerobic power outputs. This method of training may be useful amongst some clinical populations, but acute responses are not well described. As such, twelve healthy males completed two experimental sessions of either 45 minutes of eccentric or concentric cycling at a matched aerobic power output below the ventilatory threshold...

Amphetamine (AMPH) or methamphetamine (METH) abuse can cause oxidative damage and is a risk factor for diseases including pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Pulmonary artery endothelial cells (PAECs) from AMPH-associated-PAH patients show DNA damage as judged by γH2AX foci and DNA comet tails. We therefore hypothesized that AMPH induces DNA damage and vascular pathology by interfering with normal adaptation to an environmental perturbation causing oxidative stress. Consistent with this, we found that AMPH alone does not cause DNA damage in normoxic PAECs, but greatly amplifies DNA damage in hypoxic PAECs...

RATIONALE: Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) respond to SDF-1 through receptors CXCR7 and CXCR4. Whether SDF-1 receptors involves in diabetes induced EPCs dysfunction remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of SDF-1 receptors in diabetic EPCs dysfunction. METHODS AND RESULTS: CXCR7 expression, but not CXCR4 was reduced in EPCs from db/db mice, which coincided with impaired tube formation. Knockdown of CXCR7 impaired tube formation of EPCs from normal mice, while up-regulation of CXCR7 rescued angiogenic function of EPCs from db/db mice...

Brain tissue is known to be vulnerable to the exposure by tobacco smoke. Tobacco smoke can induce generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), causing inflammatory activity and blood-brain barrier (BBB) impairment. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of tobacco smoke on cell cytotoxicity, generation of ROS, and cellular membrane damage in astrocytes and BBB using a co-culture system. Cell viability of U373MG cells was reduced in a dose-dependent manner, ranging from 96.7% to 40.3% by tobacco smoke condensate (TSC)...

BACKGROUND: In the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy, damaged retinal mitochondria accelerate apoptosis of retinal capillary cells, and regulation of oxidative stress by manipulating mitochondrial superoxide dismutase (SOD2) protects mitochondrial homeostasis and prevents the development of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes also activates matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), and activated MMP-9 damages retinal mitochondria. Recent studies have shown a dynamic DNA methylation process playing an important role in regulation of retinal MMP-9 transcription in diabetes; the aim of this study is to investigate the role of oxidative stress in MMP-9 transcription...

Preeclampsia (PE), a pregnancy-specific disorder, is associated with inappropriate maternal inflammatory response, oxidative stress, and vascular endothelial cell dysfunction and damage. Releases of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) and heat-shock protein 70 (HSP70) into serum are considered to participate in the pathogenesis of PE. The deacetylase, sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), has protective effects against inflammation, apoptosis, and oxidative stress in various pathological conditions. We established a PE mouse model by injection of phosphatidylserine/dioleoyl-phosphatidycholine compounds, followed by measurement of the SIRT1 protein level in the placenta via Western blotting and the serum HMGB1 and HSP70 concentrations via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)...

The effect of testosterone, a sex steroid, on endothelial cells is controversial as it is uncertain if it has a protective effect on them. Whether physiological testosterone can inhibit the deleterious effects of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on endothelial cells remains to be elucidated. The present study focused on elucidating the effect of testosterone on the injury of endothelial cells induced by AGEs. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were cultured in vitro and treated with AGEs in the presence or absence of various concentrations of testosterone...

The endothelial nitric oxide (NO) system may be damaged in preeclampsia; however, the involved mechanisms are unclear. In this study, we used primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) to evaluate the endothelial NO system in preeclampsia and to determine the underlying mechanisms that are involved. We isolated and cultured HUVECs from normal and preeclamptic pregnancies and evaluated endothelial NO synthase enzyme (eNOS) expression and NO production. Whole-cell K(+) currents and oxidative stress were also determined in normal and preeclamptic HUVECs...

Diabetes is a multisystem disorder and its effects are observed on the reproductive system. One of the main causes of testicular tissue damage is diabetes-induced overproduction of reactive oxygen species and glycated end products. The main objectives of this study were to investigate the possible effects of agomelatine (AG) and gallic acid (GA) in suppressing oxidative stress in Type I diabetes induced testicular damage. A total of 28 adult male rats were included in the study. Diabetes was induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozocin (STZ, 55mg/kg) to 21 rats, which were then randomly assigned to 3 groups; 1mL saline solution was given to the diabetes+saline group by oral gavage, 20mg/kg/day oral AG was given to the diabetes+AG group, and 20mg/kg/day oral GA was given to the diabetes+GA group for 4 weeks...

The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors including insulin resistance (IR), dyslipidemia, and hypertension, which may also foster development of chronic kidney disease. The mechanisms of MetS-induced kidney disease are not fully understood. The purpose of this review is to summarize recent discoveries regarding the impact of MetS on the kidney, particularly on the renal microvasculature and cellular mitochondria. Fundamental manifestations of MetS include IR and adipose tissue expansion, the latter promoting chronic inflammation and oxidative stress that exacerbate IR...

Beta amyloid (Aβ)-42 peptide and phosphorylated tau protein had been demonstrated as the pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease (AD). A gradual decline of oxygen and glucose supply to the brain during aging or hypoxia was manifested as contributing factors to hypometabolism. The brain regions susceptible to hypometabolism are hippocampus, entorhinal cortex and cognition-associated neocortical regions like parietal, temporal and frontal cortex. In AD patients, the brain regions with hypometabolism can trigger overexpression of amyloid precursor protein and decreased the clearance of Aβ...
