content was determined as described by Aksenov and Markesbery (21).
A statistically very significant negative correlation was found between retinopathy with serum total thiol
and total thiol
values were measured using a new method developed by Erel and Neselioglu (17), and disulfide, disulfide/native thiol
, disulfide/total thiol
, and native thiol/total thiol
values were calculated.
With this new method, TDB tests including native thiol
(SH), disulfide (SS) and total thiol
(SH + SS) levels can be quantified simultaneously.
Reducible disulfide bonds were reduced to create free functional thiol
Troponin levels, native thiol
, total thiol
, and disulphide were compared among the groups.
is a sulfidryl (-SH) group-containing organic compound that can bind C atoms.
The homogenate was centrifuged at 18000 g for 20 minutes at 4 [degrees]C, and the resultant supernatant was used for the determination of oxidative stress markers (MDA and total thiol
The AA group had a significantly decreased native thiol
level (p<0.05) (Table 2).
Follicular native thiol
levels were decreased in the PCOS group (297.1[+ or -]37.3 [micro]mol/L) compared with the non-PCOS group (334.2[+ or -]72.5 [micro]mol/L; p=0.041), as well as the native thiol/total thiol
ratio (91.8%[+ or -]1.9% in the PCOS group, 95%[+ or -]2.3% in the non-PCOS group; p<0.0001).
Serum SH, total thiol
(TT), and SS levels were analyzed in these samples, and SS/SH, SS/TT, and SH/TT ratios were calculated according to the method of Erel and Neselioglu .
(3) The veterinary literature suggests that at least canines may be susceptible to a skunk thiol
induced hemolytic anemia, but no similar reports are noted in the human medical literature.
