Lucía Martí-Prats et al.
Neuropharmacology, 72, 204-214 (2013-05-07)
Recent electrophysiological evidence suggests that ethanol simultaneously exerts opposite effects on the activity of dopamine (DA) neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) through two parallel mechanisms, one promoting and the other reducing the GABA release onto VTA DA neurons.
V S Shubina et al.
Bulletin of experimental biology and medicine, 154(1), 152-157 (2013-01-19)
We studied the effect of liposome preparation containing taxifolin oligomers and taxifolin conjugates with carbonyl compounds on skin regeneration after chemical burn. The preparations containing flavonoid conjugates intensified regeneration processes and reparation of hair follicles and sebaceous glands after chemical

Orange mint moths, Pyrausta orphisalis (Walker) (Crambidae), were initially trapped in a study of noctuid moth attraction to floral volatiles. A subsequent series of trapping experiments in commercial mint fields determined that phenylacetaldehyde and 4-oxoisophorone were attractive to P. orphisalis

Toxicology letters, 232(2), 356-362 (2014-12-03)
Acute and/or chronic alcohol ingestion has been shown to exacerbate the morbidity and mortality rate associated with acute mechanical and/or thermal trauma. While alcohol ingestion can affect many organs and systems, clinical and preclinical studies indicate that alcohol ingestion can

Mammalian cells attempt to maintain their homeostasis under endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. If the stress cannot be alleviated, cells are led to apoptosis through induction of C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP). ER stress is provoked in osteoarthritis chondrocytes, and intracellular accumulation

Journal of studies on alcohol, 65(5), 557-572 (2004-11-13)
The possibility that acetaldehyde is responsible for some of the central nervous system effects of ethanol has been a popular hypothesis for many years. This review examines the evidence of a role for acetaldehyde in the actions of ethanol in
Olga V Tyulina et al.
Biochimica et biophysica acta, 1762(5), 558-563 (2006-04-25)
Analysis of the oxidative modification of plasma and erythrocyte ghost proteins of chronic alcoholic subjects and healthy non-alcoholics has been performed. It was found that increased levels of protein carbonyls in both plasma and erythrocyte ghosts from alcoholic subjects occurred

Aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH2) and alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) gene polymorphisms associating with enhanced acetaldehyde exposure and markedly increased cancer risk in alcohol drinkers provide undisputable evidence for acetaldehyde being a local carcinogen not only in esophageal but also in gastric cancer.
M P Mascia et al.
Alcoholism, clinical and experimental research, 25(11), 1570-1575 (2001-11-15)
Some of the effects of ethanol in the central nervous system are due to changes in function of ligand-gated ion channels. Production of detectable amounts of acetaldehyde, a primary metabolite of ethanol, has been demonstrated in brain homogenates. The aim
A Viola et al.
Magma (New York, N.Y.), 17(1), 47-61 (2004-09-02)
Cerebral metabolic changes that concur to motor and/or cognitive disorders in actively drinking alcoholics are not well established. We tested the hypothesis that chronic alcoholics exhibit profound alterations in the cerebral metabolism of scyllo-inositol. Brain metabolism was explored in nine
David Leitsch et al.
Experimental parasitology, 134(3), 374-380 (2013-04-13)
Our previous observation that NADP-dependent secondary alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH-1) is down-regulated in metronidazole-resistant Trichomonas vaginalis isolates prompted us to further characterise the enzyme. In addition to its canonical enzyme activity as a secondary alcohol dehydrogenase, a pronounced, so far unknown
Gabriel B Akanni et al.
Journal of the science of food and agriculture, 95(5), 1094-1102 (2014-11-06)
The cladodes of Opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear cactus) have a low protein content; for use as a balanced feed, supplementation with other protein sources is therefore desirable. We investigated protein enrichment by cultivation of the yeasts Candida utilis and Kluyveromyces
Victor R Preedy et al.
Novartis Foundation symposium, 285, 158-177 (2007-06-27)
Alcoholic myopathy is characterized by biochemical and morphological lesions within muscle, ranging from impairment of muscle strength and loss of lean tissue to cellular disturbances and altered gene expression. The chronic form of the disease is five times more common

Electronic (e-)cigarettes have emerged in recent years as putative alternative to conventional tobacco cigarettes. These products do not contain typical carcinogens that are present in tobacco smoke, due to the lack of combustion. However, besides nicotine, hazards can also arise
Carsten Dingels et al.

Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) with acid-sensitive moieties gained attention particularly for various biomedical applications, such as the covalent attachment of PEG (PEGylation) to protein therapeutics, the synthesis of stealth liposomes, and polymeric carriers for low-molecular-weight drugs. Cleavable PEGs are favored over
Travis M Doggett et al.
Alcoholism, clinical and experimental research, 38(9), 2414-2426 (2014-09-27)
Alcohol intoxication can increase inflammation and worsen injury, yet the mechanisms involved are not clear. We investigated whether acute alcohol intoxication increases microvascular permeability and investigated potential signaling mechanisms in endothelial cells that may be involved. Conscious rats received a

Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDHs) catalyse the conversion of toxic aldehydes into non-toxic carboxylic acids. Of the 21 ALDHs in mice, it is the ALDH3 family members (ALDH3A1, ALDH3A2, ALDH3B1, ALDH3B2 and ALDH3B3) that are responsible for the removal of lipid-derived aldehydes.

Journal of plant physiology, 170(13), 1158-1164 (2013-04-18)
Gravitropic curvature of pulvini of wheat and oat stem segments gradually declined with decreasing atmospheric O₂ concentration and was almost completely blocked under anoxia, whereas that of rice stem segments was enhanced under hypoxia and anoxia. Anoxia substantially increased the
Marlena K Sheridan et al.
Food chemistry, 177, 17-22 (2015-02-11)
Wine tannins undergo modifications during fermentation and storage that can decrease their perceived astringency and increase color stability. Acetaldehyde acts as a bridging compound to form modified tannins and polymeric pigments that are less likely to form tannin-protein complexes than
Zuquan Weng et al.
Toxicology, 311(3), 107-114 (2013-07-03)
Ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE) is biofuel additive recently used in Japan and some other countries. Limited evidence shows that ETBE has low toxicity. Acetaldehyde (AA), however, as one primary metabolite of ETBE, is clearly genotoxic and has been considered
Susumu Higuchi et al.
Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 1025, 472-480 (2004-11-16)
Alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2) play central roles in the metabolism of ethanol and its metabolite, acetaldehyde, in the liver. In ADH2, one nucleotide replacement causes either a super-active beta 2 subunit encoded by the ADH2*2 allele or
Tommaso Mello et al.

Deficiency in the long-chain omega-3 fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has been associated with increased corticotropin releasing hormone and may contribute to hypothalamic pituitary axis (HPA) hyperactivity. Elevated levels of the neuroactive steroids, allopregnanolone (3alpha,5alpha-THP) and 3alpha,5alpha-tetrahydrodeoxycorticosterone (THDOC) appear to
