Abstract

This study has compared the actions of the sulfur-containing compounds taurine (TAU) and thiotaurine (TTAU) with those of insulin (INS) on the oxidative stress that develops in the aorta and heart as a result of diabetes. Diabetes was induced in male Sprague-Dawley rats with streptozotocin (60 mg/kg, i.p.). Starting on day 15, and continuing for the next 41 days, the diabetic rats received each day 2 mL of physiological saline or 2.4 mmol/kg/2 mL of TAU (or TTAU) p.o. or 4 U/kg of isophane INS s.c. Normal rats served as controls. The rats were sacrificed on day 57 to collect blood, heart and thoracic aorta samples. Untreated diabetic rats exhibited a lower body weight gain (by 34%), higher than normal plasma glucose (by ∼4-fold), cholesterol (by 66%) and triglycerides (by 188%) levels, and lower INS levels (by 76%). Also there was a marked increase in catalase activity (≥90%); and clear decreases in nitrite (≥40%), glutathione redox status (≥67%), and glutathione peroxidase (≥66%) and superoxide dismutase (≥51%) activities in both the aorta and heart. With only a few isolated instances (plasma lipids), TTAU was either markedly more effective (plasma glucose, plasma INS, aorta and heart glutathione, aorta redox status, and antioxidant enzymes) or marginally more effective (heart redox status) than TAU in attenuating the alterations brought about by diabetes. These results suggest that replacing the sulfonic acid group of TAU by thiosulfonic acid can lead to a greater potency against diabetes-related biochemical changes in the plasma, heart and aorta. However, except for effects on plasma lipids, these sulfur-containing compounds were less effective than INS in counteracting diabetes-related changes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 November 2013.
All research outputs
#816,900
of 3,628,675 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#116
of 970 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,051
of 90,230 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#2
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,628,675 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 63rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 970 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 90,230 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its contemporaries.
