    Dynamic analysis of redox-based processes in living cells is now restricted by the lack of appropriate redox biosensors. Conventional redox-sensitive GFPs (roGFPs) are limited by undefined specificity and slow response to changes in redox potential. In this study we demonstrate that the fusion...

    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...

    Connection between oxidative stress and clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) has been poorly investigated. This study was aimed to assess redox state (through measurement of oxidative stress markers) of patients with acute ischemic stroke during different stages of follow-up period,...
