Can trifluoperazine protect mitochondria against reactive oxygen species-induced damage?
Trifluoperazine (TFP) (35 μM) prevents mitochondrial transmembrane potential (ΔΨ) collapse and swelling induced by 10 μM Ca2+ plus oxyradicals generated from δ-aminolevulinic acid autoxidation. In contrast with EGTA, TFP ...
The role of mitochondrial DNA damage in the citotoxicity of reactive oxygen species
(SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERS, 2011)
Mitochondria contain their own genome, a small circular molecule of around 16.5 kbases. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) encodes for only 13 polypeptides, but its integrity is essential for mitochondrial function, as all 13 ...
Inhibition of peroxidase activity and scavenging of reactive oxygen species by astilbin isolated from Dimorphandra mollis (Fabaceae, Caesalpinioideae)

Reactive Oxygen Species Mediated Activation of a Dormant Singlet Oxygen Photosensitizer: From Autocatalytic Singlet Oxygen Amplification to Chemicontrolled Photodynamic Therapy
(American Chemical Society, 2016-01)
Here we show the design, preparation, and characterization of a dormant singlet oxygen (1O2) photosensitizer that is activated upon its reaction with reactive oxygen species (ROS), including 1O2 itself, in what constitutes ...
Production of reactive oxygen species in peanut nodules
(Communications in Plant Sciences, 2013-03)
In this study, it was investigated the reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in peanut nodules at three peanut growth stages (R): R1 (flowering), R4 (full pod) and R6 (full seed). Analysis of ROS production showed that ...
