- ... Arsenic is a ubiquitous toxic compound that exists naturally in many sources such as soil, groundwater, and food; in which vast majority forms are arsenite (As3+) or arsenate (As5+). The mechanism of arsenic detoxification in humans still remains obscured. Epidemiologic studies documented that arsenic pollution caused black foot disease, cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, hypotension, cardiomy ...

- ... The gene expression levels of antioxidant-related enzymes in the Sprague–Dawley (SD) rats fed with water extracts of fermented Toona sinensis Roemor leaves (WFTS) were evaluated. The transcription and translation levels of antioxidant enzymes, including catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione reductase (GR) and superoxide dismutase (SOD), were determined by reverse transcription ...
