Among molecular functions, the oxidoreductase protein family with oxygenase subfamily was enriched (p [less than or equal to] 0.05, Bonferroni corrected) in the livers of both groups of exposed rats (Table 2).
The results revealed that administration of adenosine before irradiation induced significant protection to the parameters of oxidative stress, amelioration of xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) system and uric acid, besides significant improvement of markers of heart damage.
Several studies in bacteria have reported the presence of oxalate-metabolizing proteins such as Oxalate antiport transport protein (OxIT), Formyl CoA transferase (FRC) Oxalate decarboxylase (OXDC), oxalyl CoA decarboxylase (OXC) and oxalate oxidoreductase (OOR) (34,35,36,37).
Raxone (idebenone), a synthetic short-chain benzoquinone and a cofactor for the enzyme NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1), is capable of transferring electrons directly onto complex III of the mitochondrial electron transport chain, thereby circumventing the complex I defect, reducing and scavenging ROS and restoring cellular energy levels in retinal ganglion cells and promoting recovery of visual acuity.
We examined asthma prevalence and evaluated polymorphisms in genes involved in oxidative stress pathways [gluthatione S-transferases M1 (GSTM1), T1 (GSTT1), and P1 (GSTP1) and NAD(P)H:quinine oxidoreductase (NQO1)], inflammatory response [tumor necrosis factor [alpha] (TNFA)], immunologic response [Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)], and airway reactivity [adrenergic receptor [beta]2 (ADRB2)].
