In a study of more than 1,200 people in cardiac imaging at Emory because of suspected heart disease, people with high cystine in the blood were twice as likely die or have a heart attack in the next few years.
.. Riyaz Patel, a postdoctoral fellow at the Emory Cardiovascular Research Group, presented the findings at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions meeting in Orlando.Patel was part of a team of Arshed Quyyumi, Professor of Medicine conducted at Emory University School of Medicine.As if independent of variables such as the presence of diabetes, high cystine still predicted future problems, says Patel. In the current research, it means a great deal in the quarter from the group of patients with the highest levels.The team decided to investigate whether oxidative stress initiated it with another experimental conditions, called the serum starvation/H2O2/TNF? will similar to suspended. NPD1 also exercised protective in the experimental status. Added NPD1 actually eight hours of triggered oxidation stress caused protection. A series of other experiments, as NPD1 action , the scientists found to NPD1 induces a specific action place counter antioxidant activity of in A2E – induced cell death in RPE cells.
