Research Interests

  • Effects of homocysteine and homocysteine-related compounds on rat heart and coronary circulation: the role of oxidative stress, gasotransmitters (NO, CO, H2S) and folic acid
  • The roles of gasotransmitters NO, H2S and CO in homocysteine-induced seizures and in methionine-induced hyperhomocysteinemia in rats
