Biochem/physiol Actions

Ferrostatin-1 is an active radical-trapping antioxidant that traps peroxyl radicals, and thus serves as a potential inhibitor of ferroptosis. Ferroptosis is considered as regulated necrosis, which differs from apoptosis and autophagy. Ferrostatin-1 is known to show protective effects against Huntington′s disease and also prevents neurotoxicity induced by glutamate in cellular models.
Ferrostatin-1 is a potent inhibitor of non-apoptotic cell death induced by erastin call ferroptosis. Ferrostatin-1 prevents ferroptopic cell death in cancer cells and glutamate-induced toxicity in organotypic rat brain slices. It appears that Ferrostatin-1 controls lipid soluble ROS.

Hemoglobinuria is associated with kidney injury in various hemolytic pathologies. Currently, there is no treatment available and its pathophysiology is not completely understood. Here we studied the potential detrimental effects of hemoglobin (Hb) exposure to the distal nephron (DN). Involvement...
