Glyphosate herbicide induces genotoxic effect and physiological disturbances in Bulinus truncatus snails.
Al Jīzah, Egypt. In Pestic Biochem Physiol, Sep 2015
The activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione reductase (GR), thioredoxin reductase (TrxR), glycogen phosphorylase (GP), glucose-6-phosphatase (G-6-Pase), succinic dehydrogenase (SDH) and lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) enzymes in homogenate of snail's tissues were reduced in response to the treatment with the herbicide, while lipid peroxide (LP), sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH) and transaminases (GOT and GPT) activity increased (P < 0.001).
TiO2 Nanoparticle Exposure Decreases Spermatogenesis via Biochemical Dysfunctions in the Testis of Male Mice.
Nanjing, China. In J Agric Food Chem, Sep 2015
Furthermore, TiO2 NP exposure with 2.5, 5, or 10 mg/kgbw decreased activities of lactate dehydrogenase (-11.59% to -39.84%), sorbitol dehydrogenase (-23.56% to -57.33%), succinate dehydrogenase (-27.04% to -57.85%), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (-28.3% to -56.42%), Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase (-15.59% to -53.11%), Ca(2+)-ATPase (-12.44% to -55.41%), and Ca(2+)/Mg(2+)-ATPase (-28.25% to -65.72%), and elevated activities of acid phosphatase (+10.48% to +40.0%), alkaline phosphatase (+20.65% to +64.07%), and total nitric oxide synthase (+0.68- to +2.3-fold) in the testes of mice, respectively.
Drug therapy of neuropathic pain: current developments and future perspectives.
Patiāla, India. In Curr Drug Targets, Feb 2014
The review also gives an insight into various pharmacological agents with potential neuropathic pain attenuating properties in experimental models that include NSAIDs, corticosteroids, ion channel blockers (Ca(2+), Na(+), K(+), and TRP channel); ion exchange modulators (NCE and NHE); ion/molecule transport modulators (NKCC-1 and glycine); receptor modulators (kinin, histamine, 5-HT1A, dopamine, alpha & beta adrenergic, purinergic, excitatory amino acid, sigma, ORL1, endothelin, melanocortin, ephrin and PAR); enzyme inhibitors (cytosolic kinase, metalloproteinase, protease, vasopeptidase, D-amino acid oxidase, fatty acid amide hydrolase, aldose reductase and sorbitol dehydrogenase); other ligands (AGE, RAGEs, neuropeptides, neurotrophic factor, complement cascade, cytokine, glial cell & gap junction, nitrous oxide, growth factor, cell adhesion molecule and neuronal sprouting molecule).
The current state of serum biomarkers of hepatotoxicity.
United States. In Toxicology, 2008
In contrast, the enzymatic markers sorbitol dehydrogenase, glutamate dehydrogenase, paraxonase, malate dehydrogenase, and purine nucleoside phosphorylase are all readily measured by photometric methods and use reagents that work across preclinical species and humans and are commercially available.
Pyridine nucleotide redox abnormalities in diabetes.
Boston, United States. In Antioxid Redox Signal, 2007
Our studies suggest that cytosolic NADH reductive stress under high glucose is largely caused by increased flux of glucose through polyol (sorbitol) pathway consisting of aldose reductase and sorbitol dehydrogenase.
Sorbitol dehydrogenase: structure, function and ligand design.
Australia. In Curr Med Chem, 2004
Sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH), a member of the medium-chain dehydrogenase/reductase protein family and the second enzyme of the polyol pathway of glucose metabolism, converts sorbitol to fructose strictly using NAD(+) as coenzyme.
