Oxidative stress and ascorbate in relation to risk for cataract and age-related maculopathy

, : Oxidative stress and ascorbate in relation to risk for cataract and age-related maculopathy. Vitamin C in health and disease: 231-264

The prevalence and clinical features of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are outlined. The associations between cataract and exposure to high-intensity light, oxidation, smoking, and failure of primary and secondary defense systems are discussed. Dietary ascorbate intake has been shown to be related to eye tissue ascorbate levels. Studies on the association between cataract and antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin C, are reviewed.

Ricin [a highly toxic and specific inhibitor of eukaryotic protein synthesis] from Ricinus communis was isolated and the binding of 3H-reductively alkylated or 125I-iodinated ricin was studied by incubating the toxic protein with ribosomes and iso...

It can be expected that, over a long time span, both the contents and the scope of environmental impact statements (EISs) will evolve to incorporate new issues and new analytical approaches. A diachronic review was conducted of a sample of EISs pr...

Grey seals Halichoerus grypus were sampled in the Faroe Islands archipelago during the summers of 1993 to 1995. Concentrations of Cd, Cu, Hg, Se and Zn were measured in the liver, kidney and muscle of 68 seals. All elements except Zn exhibited low...

Bridier-Nahmias, A.; Lesage, P., 2012: Two large-scale analyses of Ty1 LTR-retrotransposon de novo insertion events indicate that Ty1 targets nucleosomal DNA near the H2A/H2B interface. Over the years, a number of reports have revealed that Ty1 integration occurs in a 1-kb window upstream of Pol III-transcribed genes with an approximate 80-bp periodicity between each integration hotspot and that this targeting requires active Pol...
