The adaptive response induced by the lipid peroxidation products, such as phosphatidylcholine hydroperoxide, lysophosphatidylcholine (LysoPC), 15-deoxy-Delta(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2), 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE), hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid, 7-hydroxycholesterol, and cholesterol 5beta,6beta-epoxide, was investigated in this study. Although these products have been implicated in oxidative stress-related diseases...

In the nineteen sixties it was proposed that cholesterol might be involved in the etiology of cancers and cholesterol oxidation products were suspected of being causative agents. Researchers had focused their attention on cholesterol-5,6-epoxides (5,6-ECs) based on several lines of...

Epoxide hydrolases (EH), enzymes present in all living organisms, transform epoxide-containing lipids to 1,2-diols by the addition of a molecule of water. Many of these oxygenated lipid substrates have potent biological activities: host defense, control of development, regulation of blood...

The cytotoxicity of the oxysterols 25-hydroxycholesterol, 7beta-hydroxycholesterol, cholesterol-5alpha,6alphaepoxide, cholesterol-5beta,6beta-epoxide, 19-hydroxycholesterol and 7-ketocholesterol was examined in U937 cells, a human monocytic blood cell line. 7beta-Hydroxycholesterol, cholesterol-5beta,6beta-epoxide, and 7-ketocholesterol, at 30 micromol/L concentration, were found to be cytotoxic to this cell line...
