|Titolo:||Protective Effect of Vanilloids against tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide-Induced Oxidative Stress in Vero Cells Culture|
|Data di pubblicazione:||2008|
|Abstract:||This study investigated the effect of synthetic capsiate, a simplified analogue of capsiate, and vanillyl alcohol on the oxidative stress induced by tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBH) in a line of fibroblasts derived from monkey kidney (Vero cells). In response to the TBH-mediated oxidative stress, a reduction of the levels of total unsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol was observed, and a rise in the concentrations of conjugated dienes fatty acids hydroperoxides and 7-ketocholesterol. Pretreatment with both synthetic capsiate and vanillyl alcohol preserved Vero cells from oxidative damage and showed a remarkable protective effect on the reduction of the levels of total unsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, inhibiting the increase of MDA, conjugated dienes fatty acids hydroperoxides, and 7-ketocholesterol. Both compounds were effective against peroxidation of cell membrane lipids induced by TBH, with synthetic capsiate essentially acting as a pro-drug of vanillyl alcohol, its hydrophilic hydrolytic derivative.|
