A discovery by scientists affiliated with RIDC REDOXOME could contribute to the development of more powerful photosensitizers. When these molecules are exposed to light, they trigger biochemical processes that lead to the disruption of the cell membranes of tumors or pathogens.
Oxide plays a key role in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases as well as cancer. Experiments conducted within the scope of RIDC REDOXOME reveal a hitherto unknown mechanism underlying the formation of nitroso thiols.
Study suggests that people with low levels of PDIA1 in blood plasma may be at high risk of thrombosis; this group also investigated PDIA1’s specific interactions in cancer.
International research group demonstrates the involvement of singlet molecular oxygen in vasodilation, causing a sharp decline in blood pressure in severe inflammatory processes such as sepsis.
Animal experiments have shown that caloric restriction causes cellular changes that can prevent diseases, the subject of a session at FAPESP Week London.
Description of the mechanism could enhance the efficiency of photodynamic therapy, a medical treatment for cancer and bacterial infection, and permit the development of more efficient sunscreens.
After taking beta-alanine for 28 days, volunteers eliminated more toxic substances from skeletal muscle following physical exercise. This discovery could help treat diseases caused by oxidative stress.
Labile iron prevents oxidation when it interacts with peroxynitrite, shows a study conducted at the Center for Research on Redox Processes in Biomedicine. The discovery has an impact on various biological processes.
