Native 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.
Troponin levels, native thiol, total thiol, and disulphide were compared among the groups.
Thiol 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 groups).
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 [11].
