The increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by mitochondria under stress conditions leads to lipid peroxidation (LPO) as a consequence of the ROS interactions with polyunsaturated fatty acids in the lipid bilayer of cell membranes, causing their damage. It was assumed that chemical preparations that reduce the excessive ROS generation by mitochondria should exhibit protecting properties under oxidative-stress conditions. In this context, the antioxidants resveratrol (RSV) and 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine N-acetylcysteinate (NAC-3-HP) were examined as potential chemical protectors upon the exposure to stress, able to maintain the functional state of mitochondria.
