Luteoskyrin is a hepatotoxic and hepatocarcinogenic bisdihydroanthraquinone produced by Penicillium islandicum Sopp. By observing the EPR spectra of DMPO-spin adducts and luteoskyrin semiquinone radical, we investigated in vitro whether luteoskyrin is reduced to its semiquinone radical leading to...
Using ESR with 5,5-dimethyl-l-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO) as a spin-trapping reagent, we measured the levels of free radical species generated from living cells of Chlorella vulgaris var. vulgails (IAM C-534). To investigate the production of free radicals in the living Chlorella vulgaris cells, the...
The effects of intravenous administration of a-phenyl N- tert -butyl nitrone (PBN) on cortical cerebral blood flow (CBF) were examined in Wistar rats under pentobarbital anesthesia and artificial ventilation. The cortical CBF in parietal cortex was measured by laser Doppler flowmetry. Intravenous...
We have examined free radical production in a rat model of focal cerebral ischemia using microdialysis coupled with EPR analysis. A microdialysis probe was inserted 2 mm into the cerebral cortex, supplied by the right middle cerebral artery (MCA), and after a 2-hour washout period with artificial...
Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) have been suggested to be damaged by superoxide radical generated on their own. The protective capacity of a spin trapping compound, phenyl-N- tert -butyl nitrone (PBN) was evaluated for this damage which occurs after the induction of superoxide generation. The...
