Disulphide levels were lower in the patients compared to the controls (p<0.001).As troponin levels increased, native thiol, total thiol and disulphide levels in patients decreased (p1 mm (0.1mV) ST-segment elevation in 2 consecutive leads, and later confirmed by increase in troponin I.
The AA group had a significantly decreased native thiol/total thiol ratio and a significantly increased disulphide level, disulphide/native thiol, and disulphide/total thiol ratios (p<0.01) (Table 2).
Dynamic disulphide bridges were reduced to functional thiol groups by sodium borohydride.
Although protein disulphide isomerase (PDI) is known to be a catalyst during the formation and reorganization of disulphide bonds in developing wheat grains, it could be assumed that the above-mentioned high temperatures influenced its lower activity.
For systematic evaluation of the sensitivity of TRP channels, a congeneric series of reactive disulphide compounds turned out to be a powerful approach.
In short, disulphide bonds were first reduced to form-free functional thiol groups with sodium borohydride.
