isoprostane


Also found in: Wikipedia.

i·so·pros·tane

(ī-sō-pros-tān),
Compound derived from the free radical oxidation of arachidonic acid; resembles in some manner the prostoglandins. Elevated levels may be associated with atherosclerosis, hepatorenal syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and carcinogenesis.

isoprostane

(ī-sō-prŏs′tān″)
Any compound similar to prostaglandin that can be used as a marker for tissue damage caused by oxygen-derived free radicals. It is measured in human blood through the use of immunoassay technique and may enhance the study of diseases caused by oxidative stress.

Endothelial cell production of ROS has been shown to be increased in response to shear stress as well as to cyclic mechanical stretch.[29],[30] It was reported that A549 cells subjected to cyclic stretch significantly increased levels of isoprostane (a marker of oxidant injury) with obvious decreased glutathione (GSH, an endogenous antioxidant) 60 min after cyclic stretch.
(i) Evaluation of lipid peroxidation by analysis of 8 isoprostane: The plasma aliquots destined for this assay were stored at -80[degrees]C in the presence of 0.005% BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene).
In people with OSAS, soluble adhesion molecules like intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1), vascular adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM1), and acute phase proteins like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), retinol binding protein (RBP), and isoprostane are reported to be high [9, 10].
Major metabolite of [F.sub.2]-isoprostane in urine may be a more sensitive biomarker of oxidative stress than isoprostane itself.
A second limitation is that other oxidative stress markers, such as antioxidant enzymes (catalase, superoxide dismutase, GSH peroxidase) and lipid peroxidation products (MDA, isoprostane) were not determined.
Baseline levels of urine (mcg)-to-creatinine (g) isoprostane 8-isoprostaglandin F2-alpha (8-iso/cr), an indicator of lipid peroxidation, were higher in smokers than in nonsmokers.
Although isoprostane, nitrotyrosine and other markers of OS are also available in research, MDA is the most commonly used parameter of OS because of easy methodology.1,2
Markers of lipid--aldehydes, dialdehydes, methylglyoxal, hexenal derivatives, nonenal, and isoprostane.
[46] examined the relationship between smoking and urinary isoprostane levels (N = 141).
Before and just after the event, the scientists measured the compound isoprostane in blood and urine samples as a newly established, state-of-the-art marker of oxidative stress.

This is the first study to demonstrate that increased expression of HO-1 plays a significant role in modulating the phenotype of adipocytes via a decrease in heme and isoprostane levels in MSC-derived adipocytes treated with fructose and mice fed a high fructose diet.
