Regulation of colonic epithelial butyrate transport: Focus on colorectal cancer
Pedro Gonçalves, Fátima Martel
Porto Biomed J. 2016;1:83-91
8634
Highlights

  • Fermentation of the dietary fiber by intestinal microflora results in production of butyrate.

  • Butyrate possesses anticarcinogenic effect at the colonic level.

  • Three transporters (MCT1, SMCT1 and BCRP) regulate the intracellular concentration of BT in colonic epithelial cells.

  • Changes in the expression of these transporters occur in colorectal cancer.

Relevance of peroxynitrite formation and 3-nitrotyrosine on spermatozoa physiology
Daniel Filipe Cruz, Margarida Fardilha
Porto Biomed J. 2016;1:129-35
6261
Highlights

  • Male fertility decline has been attributed, in part, to increased oxidative stress.

  • Here we will focus on spermatozoa ROS, namely O2•−, NO and ONOO and their contribution to protein tyrosine nitration, namely by 3-NT formation.

  • An in depth review will be made on the methods used to detect protein oxidation.

  • Detecting 3-NT in sperm proteins will have a crucial clinical impact, namely on the follow up of anti-oxidant therapies.
