AB  - The aim of this study was to assess the effects of l-cysteine (Cys) (7 mg/kg) and N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) (50 mg/kg) in the rat liver caused by subchronic i.p. application of methionine (Met) (0.8 mmol/kg) during 21 days. Malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration, glutathione content (GSH), catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and acetylcholinesterase (AchE) activities were determined in the liver tissue and activities of liver enzymes (AST, ALT, ALP, and GGT) and concentrations of total proteins and albumin were determinated in plasma/serum. Catalase, superoxide dismutase, and acetylcholinesterase activities were increased by Cys and NAC. Met caused periportal mononuclear infiltration and rare focal necrosis of hepatocytes. In Cys- and NAC-supplemented groups, intracellular edema and microvesicular fatty changes without necrosis were noticed. We observed decrease of AST, ALT, and ALP activity in the methionine-treated group. Our results indicate that Cys and NAC application can increase activity of antioxidative enzymes and prevent intensive histological changes in liver in condition of subchronic methionine exposure.

AB  - Background: Sulphur is an abundant element in biological systems, which plays an important role in processes essential for life as a constituent of proteins, vitamins and other crucial biomolecules. The major source of sulphur for humans is plants being able to use inorganic sulphur in the purpose of sulphur-containing amino acids synthesis. Sulphur-containing amino acids include methionine, cysteine, homocysteine, and taurine. Methionine and cysteine are classified as proteinogenic, canonic amino acids incorporated in protein structure. Sulphur amino acids are involved in the synthesis of intracellular antioxidants such as glutathione and N-acetyl cysteine. Moreover, naturally occurring sulphur-containing ligands are effective and safe detoxifying agents, often used in order to prevent toxic metal ions effects and their accumulation in human body. Methods: Literature search for peer-reviewed articles was performed using PubMed and Scopus databases, and utilizing appropriate keywords. Results: This review is focused on sulphur-containing amino acids - methionine, cysteine, taurine, and their derivatives - glutathione and N-acetylcysteine, and their defense effects as antioxidant agents against free radicals. Additionally, the protective effects of sulphur-containing ligands against the toxic effects of heavy and transition metal ions, and their reactivation role towards the enzyme inhibition are described. Conclusion: Sulphur-containing amino acids represent a powerful part of cell antioxidant system. Thus, they are essential in the maintenance of normal cellular functions and health. In addition to their worthy antioxidant action, sulphur-containing amino acids may offer a chelating site for heavy metals. Accordingly, they may be supplemented during chelating therapy, providing beneficial effects in eliminating toxic metals.

AB  - The objective of this study was to investigate in vitro effects of 10 A mu M dl-homocysteine (dl-Hcy), dl-homocysteine thiolactone-hydrochloride (dl-Hcy TLHC), and l-homocysteine thiolactone-hydrochloride (l-Hcy TLHC) on the oxygen consumption of rat heart tissue homogenate, as well as the involvement of the gasotransmitters NO, H2S and CO in the effects of the most toxic homocysteine compound, dl-Hcy TLHC. The possible contribution of the gasotransmitters in these effects was estimated by using the appropriate inhibitors of their synthesis (N (omega)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (l-NAME), dl-propargylglycine (dl-PAG), and zinc protoporphyrin IX (ZnPPR IX), respectively). The oxygen consumption of rat heart tissue homogenate was measured by Clark/type oxygen electrode in the absence and presence of the investigated compounds. All three homocysteine-based compounds caused a similar decrease in the oxygen consumption rate compared to control: 15.19 +/- 4.01%, 12.42 +/- 1.01%, and 16.43 +/- 4.52% for dl-Hcy, dl-Hcy TLHC, or l-Hcy TLHC, respectively. All applied inhibitors of gasotransmitter synthesis also decreased the oxygen consumption rate of tissue homogenate related to control: 13.53 +/- 1.35% for l-NAME (30 A mu M), 5.32 +/- 1.23% for dl-PAG (10 A mu M), and 5.56 +/- 1.39% for ZnPPR IX (10 A mu M). Simultaneous effect of l-NAME (30 A mu M) or ZnPPR IX (10 A mu M) with dl-Hcy TLHC (10 A mu M) caused a larger decrease of oxygen consumption compared to each of the substances individually. However, when dl-PAG (10 A mu M) was applied together with dl-Hcy TLHC (10 A mu M), it attenuated the effect of dl-Hcy TLHC from 12.42 +/- 1.01 to 9.22 +/- 1.58%. In conclusion, cardiotoxicity induced by Hcy-related compounds, which was shown in our previous research, could result from the inhibition of the oxygen consumption, and might be mediated by the certain gasotransmitters.

AB  - The aim of this study was to assess the effects of DL-homocysteine (DL-Hcy) and DL-homocysteine thiolactone (DL-Hcy TLHC) on selected serum biochemical parameters, markers of oxidative stress and the activities of antioxidant enzymes (catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), superoxide dismutase (SOD)) in the plasma, as well as on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in the cardiac tissue homogenate in the rat. Male Wistar rats were divided into three groups as follows: control group (1 mL 0.9% NaCl, intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection), DL-Hcy group (8 mmol/kg body mass (b.m.), i.p.) or DL-Hcy TLHC group (8 mmol/kg b.m., i.p.). One hour after administration, the rats were euthanized, whole blood was collected for biochemical analysis, and the heart was excised. Following the i.p. administration of DL-Hcy and DL-Hcy TLHC, the activities of antioxidant enzymes were mostly significantly increased, while plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) was decreased. Administration of DL-Hcy and DL-Hcy TLHC significantly inhibited AChE activity in rat cardiac tissue. Our findings suggest that DL-Hcy and DL-Hcy TLHC exerted prooxidant effects; however, the decrease in MDA points to an inverse response to the increase in antioxidant enzyme activities. While both substances inhibited AChE activity in rat cardiac tissue, DL-Hcy TLHC induced stronger effects than DL-Hcy.

AB  - Oxidative stress appears to play a role in the pathogenesis of several inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases. Increased homocysteine levels may play a role in the pathogenesis of Chrons disease and ulcerative colitis. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of homocysteine on the antioxidant status of rat intestine and liver. The levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), activity of catalase (CAT) and total antioxidant status (TAS) were investigated in the isolated gut and liver of young male rats in the control group (8 rats) and after 3-hour incubation in high doses of D, L-homocysteine thionolactone (Hcy) (10 mu mol/L) (8 rats). Samples of duodenum, ileum, colon and liver were homogenized in sodium phosphate buffer (1: 10). Homogenates were centrifuged at 10000 for 10 min at 4 degrees C and the supernatant was taken for biochemical assays. Our results showed that high D, L-homocysteine thionolactone concentration reduced enzymatic catalase activity in homogenates of the isolated segments of duodenum (27.04%) p LT 0.01; ileum (37.27%), colon (34.17%) and liver (67.46%) p LT 0.001. Exposition to high D, L-homocysteine thiolactone concentration significantly increased TBARS levels in the duodenum (106.05%), ileum (47.24%), colon (112.75%) and liver (32.07%) (p LT 0.01). Homocysteine also modified the total antioxidant status of homogenates from the duodenum, ileum, colon and liver, increasing by 20.68% (duodenum), 24.74% (ileum), 14.88% (colon) and 19.35% (liver) (p LT 0.001). Homocysteine induced a consistent oxidative stress in rats intestine and liver (reduced activity of catalase and increased level of TBARS), but the elevated activity of TAS in our experiments could be explained as an adaptive response to the generated free radicals which indicates the failure of the total antioxidant defense mechanism to protect the tissues from damage caused by homocysteine.

AB  - The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of subchronic co-administration of folic acid (F) and L-arginine (A) on behavioural and electroencephalographic (EEG) characteristics of DL homocysteine thiolactone (H) induced seizures in adult rats. The activity of membrane ATPases in different brain regions were also investigated. Rats were treated with F, A, or vehicle for 15 days (regimen: F 5 mg/kg + A 500 mg/kg (F5A500); F 10 mg/kg + A 300 mg/kg (F10A300)). Seizures were elicited by convulsive dose of H (H, F5A500H, F10A300H) Subchronic supplementation with F and A did not affect seizure incidence, number of seizure episodes, and severity in F5A500H and F10A300H groups vs. H group. However, a tendency to increase latency and decrease the number of seizure episodes was noticed in the F10A300H group. EEG mean spectral power densities during ictal periods were significantly lower in F10A300H vs. H group. The activity of Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase was significantly increased in almost all examined structures in rats treated with F and A. We can conclude that subchronic supplementation with folic acid and L-arginine has an antiepileptic effect in DL homocysteine thiolactone induced epilepsy.

AB  - Influence of folic acid on the CNS is still unclear. Folate has a neuroprotective effect, while on the other hand excess folate can exacerbate seizures in epileptics. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of subchronic administration of folic acid on behavioural and electroencephalographic (EEG) characteristics of DL homocysteine thiolactone induced seizures in adult rats. The activity of Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase in different brain regions was investigated. Adult male Wistar rats were divided into groups: 1. Controls (C, 0.9% NaCl); 2. DL homocysteine-thiolactone 8.0 mmol/kg (H); 3. Subchronic supplementation with folic acid 5 mg/kg for 7 days (F) and 4. Subchronic supplementation with F + single dose of H (FH). Seizure behaviour was assessed by incidence, latency, number and intensity of seizure episodes. Seizure severity was described by a descriptive scale with grades 0-4. For EEG recordings, three gold-plated recording electrodes were implanted into the skull. Subchronic supplementation with folic acid did not affect seizure incidence, median number of seizure episodes and severity in FH, comparison with H (p GT 0.05). The majority of seizure episodes in all groups were of grade 2. There were no significant differences in lethal outcomes at 24 h upon H injection in the FH vs. H group. The activity of Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase was significantly increased in almost all examined structures in the FH vs. H group. Subchronic folic acid administration did not exacerbate H induced seizures and completely recovered the activity of ATPases.

AB  - Although primary toxic action of organophosphorous insecticides is associated with acetylcholinesterase inhibition, later studies suggest that oxidative stress may be responsible for induced organophosphates toxicity. These studies mostly include thio forms, while the effects of their metabolites/ degradation products have been less investigated. Therefore, this paper studies the toxic effects of diazinon degradation products, diazoxon and 2-isopropyl-6-methyl-4-pyrimidinol, and compares them with the toxic potential of the parent compound. The toxicity induced by various concentrations of the investigated compounds was in vitro evaluated by the activities of acetylcholinesterase, ATPases, antioxidant defense enzymes and lactate dehydrogenase, and malondialdehyde level in rat brain synaptosomes. Diazinon inhibited acetylcholinesterase and Na+/K+-ATPase in dose-dependent manner, while the inhibition of ecto-ATPase activity was less than 15% at all investigated concentrations. It did not demonstrate noteworthy prooxidative properties causing increase (up to 10%) in antioxidant enzymes activity and malondialdehyde level, as a marker of lipid peroxidation. Diazinon oxidation product, diazoxon was found as the most toxic investigated compound. Beside the expected strong inhibitory effect on acetylcholinesterase, it induced dose-dependent and almost complete inhibition of Na+/K+-ATPase and ecto-ATPase at the highest investigated concentration (0.1 mM). Increasing diazoxon concentrations activated catalase (up to 30%), superoxide dismutase (up to 50%), glutathione peroxidase (up to 30%), and significantly increased malondialdehyde level (up to 50%). The investigated hydrolysis product of diazinon, 2-isopropyl-6-methyl-4-pyrimidinol did not remarkably alter the activities of acetylcholinesterase, Na+/K+-ATPase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and lipid peroxidation level (up to about 10%). Although this diazinon metabolite has been known as non toxic, it induced superoxide dismutase stimulation up to 30%. Finally, even high concentrations of both diazinon and its metabolites did noticeably affect lactate dehydrogenase activity as a marker of synaptosomal integrity. The changes in investigated biochemical parameters in rat brain synaptosomes could serve as indicators of toxicity due to the exposure to thio organophosphates and/or their break-down products.

AB  - The aim of the study was to examine the effects of chronic exercise training on seizures induced by homocysteine thiolactone (HCT) in adult rats. Rats were assigned to: sedentary control; exercise control; sedentary +HCT; exercise + HCT group. Animals in the exercise groups ran 30 min daily on a treadmill for 30 consecutive days (belt speed 20 m/min), while sedentary rats spent the same time on the treadmill (speed 0 m/min). On the 31st day, the HCT groups received HCT (8.0 mmol/kg), while the control groups received vehicle. Afterwards, convulsive behavior and EEG activity were registered. Lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activity were ascertained in the rat hippocampus. No signs of seizures were registered in sedentary and exercise control rats. Seizure latency was increased, while number of seizure episodes and spike-and-wave discharges (SWD) in EEG were decreased in the exercise + HCT compared to the sedentary +HCT group. Seizure incidence, the severity thereof and duration of SWDs were not significantly different between these groups. Exercise partly prevented increase of lipid peroxidation and decrease of the SOD and CAT activity after HCT administration. These results indicate beneficial effects of exercise in model of HCT induced seizures in rats, what could be, at least in part, a consequence of improved antioxidant enzymes activity.

AB  - Hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with various pathologies including cardiovascular disease, stroke, and cognitive dysfunctions. Systemic administration of homocysteine can trigger seizures in animals, and patients with homocystinuria suffer from epileptic seizures. Available data suggest that homocysteine can be harmful to human cells because of its metabolic conversion to homocysteine thiolactone, a reactive thioester. A number of reports have demonstrated a reduction of Na+/K+-ATPase activity in cerebral ischemia, epilepsy and neurodegeneration possibly associated with excitotoxic mechanisms. The aim of this study was to examine the in vivo effects of d,l-homocysteine and d,l-homocysteine thiolactone on Na+/K+- and Mg2+-ATPase activities in erythrocyte (RBC), brain cortex, hippocampus, and brain stem of adult male rats. Our results demonstrate a moderate inhibition of rat hippocampal Na+/K+-ATPase activity by d,l-homocysteine, which however expressed no effect on the activity of this enzyme in the cortex and brain stem. In contrast,d,l-homocysteine thiolactone strongly inhibited Na+/K+-ATPase activity in cortex, hippocampus and brain stem of rats. RBC Na+/K+-ATPase and Mg2+-ATPase activities were not affected by d,l-homocysteine, while d,l-homocysteine thiolactone inhibited only Na+/K+-ATPase activity. This study results show that homocysteine thiolactone significantly inhibits Na+/K+-ATPase activity in the cortex, hippocampus, and brain stem, which may contribute at least in part to the understanding of excitotoxic and convulsive properties of this substance.

AB  - The effects of ethanol on epilepsy are very complex. Ethanol can have depressant as well as excitatory effect on different animal models of epilepsy. Systemic administration of homocysteine can trigger seizures. The aim of the present study was to examine the changes of total spectral power density after ethanol alone and together with homocysteine thiolactone in adult rats. Adult male Wistar rats were divided into following groups: I. saline-injected, (control) C; 2. D, L-homocysteine thiolactone, H (8 mmol/kg); 3. ethanol, E (E(0.5), 0.5 g/kg; E(1), 1 g/kg; E(2), 2 g/kg) and 4. E (E(0.5), E(1), and E(2)) 30 min prior to H, EH (E(0.5)H, E(1)H and E(2)H). For EEG recordings three gold-plated screws were implanted into the skull. Our results demonstrate that ethanol, when applied alone, increased total EEG spectral power density of adult rats with a marked spectrum shift toward low frequency waves. In EH groups, increasing doses of ethanol exhibited a dose-dependent effect upon spectral power density. Ethanol increased EEG spectral power density in E(0.5)H and E(1)H group, comparing to the H group (p GT 0.05), the maximal increase was recorded with the lowest ethanol dose applied. The highest dose of ethanol (E(2)H) significantly decreased total power spectra density, comparing to the H group. We can conclude that high doses of ethanol depressed marked increase in EEG power spectrum induced by D,L-homocysteine thiolactone.

AB  - In vitro inhibition of bovine erythrocytes acetylcholinesterase (AchE) by separate and simultaneous exposure to organophosphorous insecticide malathion and the transformation products, which are generally formed during the storage or natural as well as photochemical degradation pathways of malathion, was investigated. The increasing concentration of malathion, its oxidation product - malaoxon and isomerisation product - isomalathion inhibited AChE activity in a concentration-dependent manner. The half-maximum inhibitory concentrations (IC50 values): (3.2 +/- 0.1) x 10(-5) mol/l, (4.7 +/- 0.8) x 10(-7) mol/l and (6.0 +/- 0.5) x 10(-7) mol/l were obtained from the inhibition curves induced by malathion, malaoxon and isomalathion, respectively. However, the products formed due to photoinduced degradation, phosphorodithioic O,O,S-trimethyl phosphorodithioic ester (OOS(S)) and O,O-dimethyl thiophosphate did not noticeably affect the enzyme activity at all investigated concentrations, while diethyl maleate inhibited the AChE activity at concentrations GT 10 mmol/l. By simultaneous exposure of the enzyme to malaoxon and isomalathion in various concentration combinations the additive effect was achieved by low concentration of inhibitors, while the antagonistic effect was obtained at high concentration ( GT = 3 x 10-7 mol/l) of inhibitors. Inhibitory power of irradiated samples of 1 x 10(-5) mol/l malathion can be attributed to the formation of malaoxon and isomalathion, organophosphates about 100 times more toxic than their parent compound, while the presence of non-inhibiting degradation product OOS(S) did not affect the inhibitor efficiency of inhibiting malathion by-products, malaoxon and isomalathion.

AB  - A freezing device for cryopreservation of blood manonuclear cells has been developed. The device is microcontroller operated, allowing cell freezing by a fully automatic, unattended process. To ensure optimum preservation, the temperature in the cell suspension uniformly decreases from room temperature to -100 degrees C and then the samples are transferred to long-term storage. The performance of the device has been tested using both physiological solution and a sample of cell suspension. The control of temperature variation of cell suspension in the entire temperature range has been realised with an accuracy better than +/-0.1%. The viability of cells recovered from the frozen samples was 95%. The nitrogen consumption for one cycle of cryopreservation was 1.51. In addition to the fully automatic mode, the manual and semi-automatic modes are available for research purposes. The device has been designed using low cost and widely used electronic components and materials, it is compact and simple to operate.
