How Does Oxidation Takes Place?

oxidation example - AppleHave you ever noticed how an apple will turn brown when its surface is cut? Or how nails rust? This process is known as oxidation. It occurs when high levels of oxygen react to the exposed surfaces. The very same process is occurring in our bodies every second of the day. Each time we take a breath, the oxygen we take in becomes part of the oxidation process, a by-product of which is free radicals.

What are Free Radicals?

Free radicals are molecules of oxygen with unpaired electrons that float freely throughout our bodies seeking to rebalance themselves by stealing electrons from healthy cells. This scavenging process can create afree radical definition dangerous chain reaction that may wreak havoc by killing healthy cells and damaging tissue. It even speeds up the aging process as skin loses its elasticity, muscles weaken, hair thins, eyesight and hearing fail, teeth decay, immunity decreases and degenerative diseases increase.

Many aging and health problems occur because of free-radical oxidation. Human aging, many cancers, and most degeneration of the brain involve uncontrolled oxidation.

 

More About Free Radicals


Oxidation is essential for life. However, when oxygen is uncontrolled, oxidation occurs and free radicals are formed in the body. Free radicals are chemically unstable molecules that cause tissue and organ damage. Free radical damage is the first step in virtually every health problem and degenerative disease. Free radical damage is even thought to be the basis for the aging process.

Cross-linkage is only one example of the damage free radicals can inflict. They can supposedly split up molecules, garble information in cells, clog cell membranes, promote cancerous mutations, and impair the function of the mitochondria (the energy factories inside each cell). Free radicals will attack almost any molecule; the extent of the damage they do is so wide ranging that the free radical theory of aging has grown in popularity with each passing decade.

During the course of everyday metabolism in an air-breathing (aerobic) organism, oxygen generates many toxic free radicals such as the superoxide radical, the hydroxyl radical, the singlet oxygen radical, and the hydrogen peroxide radical. Fortunately, the cellular damage of these compounds can be kept to a minimum by the quenching effect of antioxidants.

Medical College of Wisconsin Free Radical Research Center

 

Long Term Goals -

 

To promote translational research in free radical-mediated diseases at the Medical College of Wisconsin and neighboring institutes.

To understand the mechanism of action of antioxidants (i.e., agents that scavenge or inhibit free radical formation) in human disease.

To develop therapeutic interventions in free radical based disease processes.

To develop and share a comprehensive knowledge base in all aspects of free radical reactions and free radical scavengers in basic and clinical research.

To develop the capability of non-invasive imaging of free radicals in diseases using animal models.
