Hydrogen peroxide induces apoptosis of BJAB cells due to formation of hydroxyl radicals via intracellular iron-mediated Fenton chemistry in glucose oxidase-mediated oxidative stress
GO介导的细胞毒性由细胞凋亡引起，并且通过在H33342 /膜联蛋白V /碘化丙锭染色后监测细胞来证实。
The aim of this study was to determine if hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) generated by glucose oxidase (GO) induces apoptosis or necrosis of BJAB cells and which radical is the direct mediator of cell death.
We found that GO produced H2O2 continuously in low concentrations, similar to in vivo conditions, and decreased proliferation and cell viability in a dose-dependent manner.
The GO-mediated cytotoxicity resulted from apoptosis, and was confirmed by monitoring the cells after H33342/Annexin V/propidium iodide staining.
Decreases of mitochondrial membrane potential and intracellular glutathione level were found to be critical events in the H2O2-mediated apoptosis.
Additional experiments revealed that H2O2 exerted its apoptotic action through the formation of hydroxyl radicals via the Fenton rather than the Haber-Weiss reaction. Moreover, intracellular redox-active iron, but not copper, participated in the H2O2-mediated apoptosis.
