|Issue Date:||1997||Citation:||Bay, B.-H.,Sit, K.-H.,Paramanantham, R.,Chan, Y.-G. (1997). Hydroxyl free radicals generated by vanadyl[IV] induce cell blebbing in mitotic human Chang liver cells. BioMetals 10 (2) : 119-122. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Vanadium has recently been reported to induce interphase and M-phase (mitotic) programmed cell death via the generation of hydroxyl free radicals (OH(*)). In this paper, the effects of antioxidants on: (a) vanadyl[IV]-generated OH(*) free radical levels; and (b) cellular glutathione in vanadyl [IV]-treated Chang liver cells were evaluated. The surface morphology of vanadyl-treated mitotic cells was studied by confocal and scanning microscopy. The free radical scavengers zinc chloride, glucose and thiourea reduced the levels of vanadyl-induced OH(*) free radicals and partially prevented the depletion of cellular glutathione. Concurrent with OH(*) free radical production, vanadyl-treated telophase cells exhibited excessive cell blebbing and cell shrinkage. The morphological features demonstrated in vanadyl-induced mitotic programmed cell death as a consequence of oxidative stress is novel.||Source Title:||BioMetals||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/120748||ISSN:||09660844|
