    The anti-ulcer drug geranylgeranylacetone (GGA) has been shown to induce the expression of heat shock proteins (HSPs), in particular of Hsp70, in gastric and small intestine cells. In this study, we investigated whether GGA was able to induce Hsp70 in another cell type, human monocytes, which...

    Mitochondria as an energy generating cell device are very sensitive to oxidative damage. Our previous findings obtained in hepatocytes demonstrated that Complex I of the respiratory chain is more sensitive to oxidative damage than other respiratory chain complexes. We present additional data on...
