We have recently suggested antioxidant therapy against aminoglycoside-induced hearing loss based on the hypothesis of a redox-active aminoglycoside-iron complex causing ototoxicity. The present study compares seven antioxidants and iron chelators for their ability to attenuate gentamicin-induced free radical generation in vitro and ototoxicity in guinea pig in vivo. Free radical ...

The absorption of ciprofloxacin has been reported to be impaired by concomitant administration of ferrous sulphate. The effects of sodium ferrous citrate and ferric pyrophosphate, which have been used as extensively as ferrous sulphate, on the absorption of ciprofloxacin were compared with that of ferrous sulphate. The effects of ascorbic ...

A new species of Archaea grows at pH approximately 0.5 and approximately 40 degrees C in slime streamers and attached to pyrite surfaces at a sulfide ore body, Iron Mountain, California. This iron-oxidizing Archaeon is capable of growth at pH 0. This species represents a dominant prokaryote in the environment ...

Tetrachlorohydroquinone (TCHQ) has been identified as a major toxic metabolite of the widely used wood preservative pentachlorophenol and has also been implicated in its genotoxicity. We have recently demonstrated that protection by the trihydroxamate iron chelator desferrioxamine (DFO) on TCHQ-induced single-strand breaks in isolated DNA was not the result of ...

We studied the roles of nitrogen monoxide (NO&z.rad;) and peroxynitrite produced by the polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) isolated from an inflammatory exudate. PMNs were incubated either in a medium with a submicromolar concentration of iron or in a diethylenetriaminepenta-acetic acid (DTPA)-containing medium, and stimulated with phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) to generate ...

A National fortification program instituted in Venezuela in 1993 reduced iron deficiency and anemia by half in only 1 y. The fortification mixture contained ferrous fumarate, vitamin A and other vitamins. We conducted experiments to characterize ferrous fumarate uptake by Caco-2 cells. Increasing amounts of ferrous fumarate, vitamin A, phytate, ...

The generation of free radicals by ultraviolet (UV) light accelerates skin aging, which is known as photoaging. Cutaneous iron catalyzes the generation of free radicals. We designed novel antioxidants that suppressed the iron-catalyzed free radical generation and the ensuing UV-induced damage by mimicking the binding site of iron sequestering proteins. ...

In vitro assays of washed, excised roots revealed maximum potential ferric iron reduction rates of >100 micromol g (dry weight)(-1) day(-1) for three freshwater macrophytes and rates between 15 and 83 micromol (dry weight)(-1) day(-1) for two marine species. The rates varied with root morphology but not consistently (fine root ...

Tetrahydroisoquinolines (TIQs) are intraneuronal, catecholamine-derived alkaloids that have been implicated in the etiology of Parkinson's disease and in alcohol related disorders. The in vitro production of the cytotoxic hydroxyl radical (*OH) was recorded during the autoxidation of salsolinol (SAL) and salsolinol-1-carboxylic acid (SAL-1C), but not when these two catecholic TIQs ...

Resting cells of Streptomyces clavuligerus NP-1, which possess deacetoxycephalosporin C synthase activity, have been shown previously to perform oxidative ring expansion of penicillin G in the presence of iron, ascorbic acid, and alpha-ketoglutaric acid to form deacetoxycephalosporin G. Further studies on this bioconversion indicated that use of MOPS or HEPES ...

Many iron(III)-selective chelators possess an appreciable affinity for zinc(II) and this can prove to be undesirable when such chelators are being assessed for clinical application. At present, there is no useful test available which can reliably access this problem. In the present manuscript, we provide evidence that indicates that a ...

The mechanisms responsible for the resistance to the anabolic actions of IGF-I induced by zinc deficiency are not understood. We showed that zinc chelation by DTPA (diethylenetriaminepenta-acetic acid) inhibits [3H]thymidine incorporation stimulated by IGF-I in Rat-1 fibroblasts. This inhibition was specific of zinc chelation since it was prevented by the ...

Previous studies have demonstrated that altering the fatty acid composition of porcine pulmonary artery endothelial cells (PAEC) significantly modulates their susceptibility to oxidative stimuli, e.g. H2O2. Based on observations that fatty acids also function to transport iron, an important catalyst for H2O2-mediated hydroxyl radical generation, we hypothesized that fatty acid-induced ...

Epidemiological studies have shown that the prevalence of coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP) differed remarkably between different coal mine regions despite comparable exposures to respirable dust. In the United States, CWP was found to be most common in Pennsylvania coal miners and least common in miners from Utah. The active component(s) ...

Siderophores are low molecular weight iron chelators, produced by virtually all bacteria, fungi and some plants. They serve to deliver the essential element iron, barely soluble under aerobic conditions, into microbial cells. Siderophores are therefore important secondary metabolites which are very often based on amino acids and their derivatives. Biosynthesis, ...

Common sense always links good nutrition with optimal development of infants and, particularly, of brain development. Fortunately, brain development is rather resistant to nutritional deficiencies, provided that the psychomotor stimulation of the baby is adequate, as shown by many authors in the case of global protein energy malnutrition. For two ...
