Abstract

This article examined the possible protective effect of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) taurine, quercetin and Syringaldehyde dendritic antioxidants against the oxidative stress induced by diabetic or pre-diabetic patient case due to high sucrose intake by computer simulation. We also compared these results with the well-known diabetic drugs glizipid and Avandia. Towards this understanding we undertook a molecular level computer model in order to study the molecular interaction between high sugar content with antioxidant by varying ratios of sucrose molecules with and without the presence of diabetic drugs. From our study it shows that with the presence of various antioxidant combinations diabetics drugs could be much more beneficial to the patients in terms of its side effects such a heart attack. Many interesting results have been obtained by this study. The application of this driving force may be used to predict the feasibility and benefit in order to understand the high-sucrose diet-induced obesity, which certainly would bring new insights on obesity-related adverse control and may possibly suggest the impact of N-acetylcysteine and syringaldehyde in such cases. Hyperglycemia is an important predictor of cardiovascular mortality in patients with diabetes. We also investigated the hypothesis that diabetes or acute hyperglycemia attenuates the reduction of myocardial infarct size produced by activation of mitochondrial ATP-regulated potassium (KATP) channels. The results indicate that diabetes/hyperglycemia impairs activation of mitochondrial KATP channels.
