Latest Uses Polymer, in pig sperm, enhance the lifespan of human sperm in fertility treatments Hybrid protein recognizes a molecule on the sperm's surface and the antioxidant vitamin E. Pig sperm live longer than untreated cells,
Glutamate Glutamate hippocampal cells of glutathione, incapable to reduce reactive oxygen species in cell death by oxidative stress. cells resistant to glutamate increased phosphorylation of (CREB) and decreased ERK1/2
Glutamate Increase in mRNA for receptors activated by the vasoactive intestinal peptide VIP and glutamate like the metabotropic glutamate receptor mGlu 1 Treating cells with VIP and glutamate led to the same changes in protein phosphorylation observed in resistant cells and induced the proto-oncogene Bcl-2.
Glutamate Bcl-2 overexpression protected by increasing the amount of intracellular glutathione and Bcl- 2 knockdown by small interfering RNAs (siRNA) increased glutamate susceptibility of resistant cells. Other receptors upregulated in this paradigm might represent useful targets in the treatment of neurological diseases associated with oxidative stress.

Oxygenation therapy Disease is caused by absence of oxygen "good energy" metabolism, detoxification, and immune system function Oxygen therapies "good" energy, to "detoxify" metabolic poisons, and to kill invading organisms.
What's The Latest ? ROS mtDNA UV human hepatoma cell Alteres the ROS by MnSOD / catalase Results accumulation of hydrogen peroxide oxidative damage to mtDNA of UV-irradiated cells, and overexpression of both MnSOD and catalase reduces the mtDNA damage and blocks the growth inhibition by UV. Increased activity of MnSOD may lead to a toxic effect on mtDNA by UV- irradiation.
