The reactivity of oytho-methoxy-substituted catechol radicals with sulfhydryl groups: Contribution for the comprehension of the mechanism of inhibition of NADPH oxidase by apocynin
(Biochemical Pharmacology, 2007-08-01) [Artigo]
Redox processes are involved in the mechanism of action of NADPH oxidase inhibitors such as diphenyleneiodonium and apocynin. Here, we studied the structure-activity relationship for apocynin and analogous ortho-methoxy- ...
Oxidation of acetylacetone catalyzed by horseradish peroxidase in the absence of hydrogen peroxide
(Biochimica et Biophysica Acta: General Subjects, 2006-12-01) [Artigo]
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is a plant enzyme widely used in biotechnology, including antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy (ADEPT). Here, we showed that HRP is able to catalyze the autoxidation of acetylacetone in the ...
Effect of subinhibitory concentration of chlorhexidine on Streptococcus agalactiae virulence factor expression
(International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, 2006-08-01) [Artigo]
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of chlorhexidine at subinhibitory concentration (50% minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC)) on the growth, cytolysin expression and phagocytosis of Streptococcus ...
