AbstractOxidative stress is induced by excess accumulation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS). Astrocytes are metabolically active cells in the brain and understanding astrocytic responses to oxidative stress is essential to understand brain pathologies. In addition to direct oxidative stress, exogenous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) can penetrate biological membranes and enhance formation of other RONS. The present study was carried out to examine the role of insulin in H2O2-induced oxidative stress in rat astrocytic cells. To measure changes in the viability of astrocytes at different concentrations of H2O2 for 3 h, a 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT)-based assay was used and 500 μM H2O2 was selected to establish a model of H2O2-induced oxidative stress. Further assays showed that 3 h of 500 μM H2O2-induced significant changes in the levels of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), reactive oxygen species (ROS) and calcium ion (Ca2+) in C6 cells, with insulin able to effect...

Abstract The existence of the bcl-2 (B-cell lymphoma-2) gene was reported nearly 30 years ago. Yet, Bcl-2 family group of proteins still surprises us with their structural and functional diversity. Since the discovery of the Bcl-2 family of proteins as one of the main apoptosis judges, the precise mechanism of their action remains a hot topic of intensive scientific research and debates. Although extensive work has been performed on the role of mitochondria in apoptosis, more and more studies po...

Abstract Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Salidroside (SAL), a phenylpropanoid glycoside isolated from Rhodiola rosea L ., can exert potent antioxidant properties. In this study, we investigated the protective effects, and the possible mechanism of action, of SAL against 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP + )-induced cell damage in rat adrenal pheochromocytoma PC12 cells. Pretreatment of PC12 cells with SAL significantly reduced the ability ...

We previously reported that hydrogen sulfide (H2S) produces protection in PC12 cells during 1-methy-4-phenylpyridinium ion (MPP+) challenge. The present study aims to clarify the mechanisms underlying the neuroprotective effects of H2S. We showed that both glybenclamide, an ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel blocker, and LY294002, a specific PI3K–AKT pathway inhibitor, reversed the neuroprotective effect of NaHS (a H2S donor) against MPP+-induced cytotoxicity to PC12 cells and that NaHS up-r...

The continuous production and efflux of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species from endogenous and exogenous sources can damage biological molecules and initiate a cascade of events. Mitochondria are pivotal in controlling cell survival and death. Cumulative oxidative stress, disrupted mitochondrial respiration, and mitochondrial damage are related with various neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and others. Biochemical cascades of apoptosis are mediated in...

Abstract Reactive oxygen species such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) are involved in many cellular processes that positively and negatively regulate cell fate. H2O2, acting as an intracellular messenger, activates phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K) and its downstream target Akt, and promotes cell survival. The aim of the current study was to understand the mechanism by which PI3K/Akt signaling promotes survival in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. We demonstrate that PI3K/Akt mediates phosphorylation ...

Manganese induces the central nervous system injury leading to manganism, by mechanisms not completely understood. Chronic exposure to manganese generates oxidative stress and induces the mitochondrial permeability transition. In the present study, we characterized apoptotic cell death mechanisms associated with manganese toxicity in rat cortical astrocytes and demonstrated that (i) Mn treatment targets the mitochondria and induces mitochondrial membrane depolarization followed by cytochrome c r...

The serine/threonine kinase Akt, also known as protein kinase B (PKB), is a central node in cell signaling downstream of growth factors, cytokines, and other cellular stimuli. Aberrant loss or gain of Akt activation underlies the pathophysiological properties of a variety of complex diseases, including type-2 diabetes and cancer. Here, we review the molecular properties of Akt and the approaches used to characterize its true cellular targets. In addition, we discuss those Akt substrates that are...

Abstract Non-selectivity of drugs used in the treatment of cancer inevitably leads to destruction of rapidly dividing normal healthy cells. In order to overcome this limitation a wide variety of targeted drug delivery systems have been reported. Among them, microparticulate drug delivery is a one of the most efficient routes and lacks responsiveness to external stimuli. In order to overcome this limitation a new drug delivery system based on reactive oxygen species (ROS) sensitive tween 80 coate...

Abstract Konjac glucomannan (KGM) is an important functional polysaccharide in food research. However, unstable dispersibility of KGM inhibits its in-depth study and wide application. In this study, a degraded KGM (100 kGy-KGM), which showed excellent dispersibility and specific physicochemical properties, were obtained by γ-irradiation in a dosage of 100 kGy. We investigated the protective effect of 100 kGy-KGM against H 2 O 2 induced oxidative damage in LO2 cells. Our results demonstrated that...
