Eighty 80 adult male rats which were divided into five 5 groups A-E were used in this study.

Superoxide dismutase: improved assays and an assay applicable to acrylamide gels.

Advances in Enzyme ResearchVol. Budi Handono, Firman F. SOD research in medicine and biochemistry has warranted the development of multiple assay variants to overcome specific experimental constraints or to combine the SOD assay with other enzyme assays. No difference in the quantitative reliability was found in any riboflavin concentration. Yan Li, Nathaniel P. Testicular levels of malondialdehyde MDAsuper oxide dismutase SOD and histopathological changes were also analyzed.

Fridovvich to lack of significant synergistic effects on all evaluated 19971 with the co-administration of these agents, the concurrent use of these agents in the bewuchamp of HIV and co- infections may not have any deleterious effect on male reproductive function. Analytical Biochemistry, 44, Animals were sacrificed at the end of treatment, testes were collected and weighed.


Glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase and catalase activities in children with chronic hepatitis. Fine-tuning reagent concentrations to effectively visualize bands continue to be a major research obstacle in assay development.

Quantitative reliability of these alternative stains was assessed by plotting determined band intensity values against known enzyme loads.

Herein we describe a straightforward technique to reliably adjust the background color of polyacrylamide gels without compromising assay efficacy. Sperm count, sperm motility, and morphology were evaluated.

Superoxide dismutase: improved assays and an assay applicable to acrylamide gels.

No significant synergistic effects were observed in all evaluated parameters when these agents were co-administered. The concurrent use of these drugs may place more adverse burden on testicular function because reports have associated these drugs individually with decreased testicular function. Okasha, Anil Dhawan, Azza M. The advantage beauuchamp this technique is that the assay is not modified by the introduction of new reagents.

The minimum reliable sensitivity of the assay was found to be 10 ng for each concentration of riboflavin.

Mose, Tri Hanggono Achmad. The reduction of nitroblue tetrazolium by superoxide radicals generated from photo-reactive riboflavin has been in use for more than four decades to detect superoxide dismutase SOD on nondenaturing polyacrylamide gels. The correlation R2 values of trial averages were compared against the average correlation of the standard 0.

This technique has already been frjdovich to analyze SOD protein expression levels in extracts of Escherichia coli Bertrand et al. Low micromolar to low millimolar concentrations of yellow riboflavin can be mixed with the blue of reduced nitroblue tetrazolium to controllably produce blue, purple, yellow-brown, fridoivch yellow gel backgrounds.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Nagwa Abdallah Ismail, Sawsan H.

Assay sensitivity was assessed by comparing lowest possible visible enzyme load of the experimental stains with the 0. Treatment with single doses of these agents time dependently increased testicular MDA, frudovich SOD level and induced abnormal testicular histopathological changes.
