  Reactive species, such as free radicals and oxidants, have been proposed as an important source of oxidative damage to biological molecules. This deleterious effect has been directly associated with the development of human diseases, such as Alzheimer (1–3), autoimmune diseases (4, 5), cardiovascular diseases (6–8), Crohn’s disease (9), kidney diseases (10, 11) and Parkinson’s Cited by: 6.   The effects of free radicals. Without oxygen important metabolic processes for the generation of energy cannot take place. These complex reactions lead unavoidably to the occurrence of intermediate products of oxygen that are highly unstable and aggressive – the so-called “free radicals,” also known as reactive oxygen species or ROS. Some situations such as stress or extreme physical.

Foods That Increase Free Radicals. Free radicals can damage your cells and your DNA through a process called oxidation. The damage from these chemicals can lead to cancer and other health conditions. Some free radicals are formed as natural byproducts of your body’s processes, including eating and breathing, and you.   According to the free radical theory of aging, first outlined in , free radicals break cells down over time. As the body ages, it loses its ability to fight the effects of free radicals.

  The Free Radical Theory of Aging, proposed in the s by Denham Harman, says that oxygen-containing free radicals play a key role in the aging process because of . Given the many sources of free radicals, it is not surprising that all aerobic forms of life maintain elaborate anti-free-radical defense systems, also known as antioxidant systems. Enzymes Every cell in the body creates its own "bomb squad"-antioxidant enzymes (complex, machine-like proteins) whose specialty is defusing oxy radicals and ROS.

The resulting free radicals, such as superoxide anion (O 2-) and hydroxyl radical (OH), as well as the non-radical hydrogen peroxide, can damage macromolecules, including DNA, proteins and lipids.

Likewise, other products of oxygen metabolism, such as hypochlorous acid, chloramines, and oxidised lipids have all been related in such damages.

Increased evidence involves free radicals with the etiology of various diseases, thereby suggesting the use of antioxidants as a viable therapeutic approach for the treat­ ment of free radical mediated pathologies. Despite these impressive developments, many important aspects of free radical and antioxidant research are open for investigation.

Free radicals have an effect on DNA, protein, fat, and other small cellular molecules in the development of pathological processes, including arteriosclerosis, joint rheumatism, and cancers.

Therefore, antioxidants are important to protect the body from oxidative : Morteza Mohammadi, Mohammad Ghorbani, Adel Beigbabaei, Samira Yeganehzad, Alireza Sadeghi-Mahoonak. ROS-mediated lipid peroxidation, oxidation of proteins, and DNA damage are well-known outcomes of oxygen-derived free radicals, leading to cellular pathology and ultimately to cell death.

Iron mediates damage to proteins and DNA. The mechanisms of damage not only involve iron but also oxygen free radical intermediates. Oxidative damage to DNA causes not only strand breaks, but also formation of specific base adducts, such as 8-hydroxy-2′-deoxyguanosine.

Introduction. Free radicals, produced in both physiological and pathological conditions in mammalian tissues [], are chemical species highly unstable because of the presence in their structure of one or more unpaired electrons; for this reason, they are very reactive and seek to reach a more stable state by coupling with other molecules or by: Water soluble proteins (WSP) in broad beans, Vicia faba, were purified, and their scavenging effects on free radicals and active oxygen species were investigated.

The purification steps included ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by sequential chromatography on Sephadex G The final gel filtration step yielded two peaks of scavenging activity, each containing Mr values of 70 kDa (peak Cited by: Amyloid beta protein (Aβ) is the main component of amyloid plaques in the brains of people with AD.

Several studies suggest that Aβ increases the generation of free radicals in neurons, which leads to oxidative damage and cell death. Aβ can also induce neuroinflammation by increasing pro-inflammatory cytokines and : Abha Chauhan, Ved Chauhan.

Free radicals, unstable molecules with unpaired electrons, are an unavoidable byproduct of cellular metabolism. Free radicals can steal electrons from lipids, proteins, RNA, and DNA, causing them damage. The body has defenses against free radicals—free radical detoxifying enzymes and antioxidant chemicals.

Free Radicals and Reactive Oxygen. A radical (often, but unnecessarily called a free radical) is an atom or group of atoms that have one or more unpaired electrons.

Radicals can have positive, negative or neutral charge. They are formed as necessary intermediates in a variety of normal biochemical reactions, but when generated in excess or not. Genes in which DNA is damaged by free radicals can no longer make proteins properly.

Also, proteins themselves can be damaged by free radicals. The net result of all this damage is a decline in cell functioning, a decline in the body's ability to produce energy, an increased risk of disease, and ultimately aging and death.

ABSTRACT: Antioxidants delay or inhibit lipid oxidation at low concentration. Tocopherols, ascorbic acid, carotenoids, flavonoids, amino acids, phospholipids, and sterols are natural antioxidants in foods. Antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of foods by scavenging free radicals, chelating prooxidative metals, quenching singlet oxygen and photosensitizers, and inactivating by:.

Damage to DNA as a result of free radical attack is called indirect DNA damage because the radicals formed can diffuse throughout the body and affect other organs.

Malignant melanoma can be caused by indirect DNA damage because it is found in parts of the body not exposed to sunlight.
