Production of free radicals and lipid peroxides in early experimental myocardial ischemia

Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology
P S RaoH S Mueller


Free radicals and lipid peroxides have recently been identified by us [1, 2, 3] as metabolic intermediates during acute myocardial ischemia. The mechanisms by which evolving myocardial ischemia initiates free radical production are not clear. Based on studies in vitro, it is feasible to consider the following possibilities: (a) dissociation of intramitochondrial electron support system and altered phospholipid integrity with inactivation of cytochrome oxidase, which results in release of ubisemiquinone, flavoprotein and superoxide radicals; (b) accumulation and increased release of intra/extracellular metabolites like NADH, lactate flavoproteins and catecholamines which react either with themselves or with O2 and ascorbic acid; (c) interaction of the metabolic product hypoxanthine with O2 in the presence of xanthine oxidase and (d) activation of phospholipase by calcium influx with enhanced arachidonic acid metabolism and superoxide radical production. Detailed in vitro radiobiological studies [4] have demonstrated that free radical reactions occur even at very low O2 tensions (83% of maximum rate of PO2 approximately 6 mmHg and 50% at PO2 approximately 1 mmHg), and Smith [5] has demonstrated that free radical peroxidation take...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
