To determine if ventricular cerebrospinal fluid (vCSF) alpha-tocopherol levels in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients can be increased by oral alpha-tocopherol supplementation and whether vCSF levels are linearly related to plasma alpha-tocopherol levels. In spite of its putative neuroprotective properties, alpha-tocopherol...

The molybdenum enzymes 4-hydroxybenzoyl-CoA reductase and pyrogallol-phloroglucinol transhydroxylase and the tungsten enzyme acetylene hydratase catalyze reductive dehydroxylation reactions, i.e., transhydroxylation between phenolic residues and the addition of water to a triple bond. Such activities are unusual for this class of...
