...Mark A. Watson; Hoi-Shan Wong; Martin D. Brand Changes in mitochondrial superoxide and hydrogen peroxide production may contribute to various pathologies, and even aging, given that over time and in certain conditions, they damage macromolecules and disrupt normal redox signalling. Mitochondria...

...Balaraman Kalyanaraman HE (hydroethidine), a widely used fluorescent dye for detecting intracellular superoxide, undergoes specific oxidation and hydroxylation reactions. The reaction between HE and O 2 •− (superoxide radical) yields a diagnostic marker product, 2-hydroxyethidium. This is contrary...

In this mini review, we will evaluate recent advances made towards understanding the roles of reactive oxygen species in inflammation, focusing in particular on superoxide and peroxynitrite. Given the limited space to cover this broad topic, here we will refer the reader...

...G. Martens; Y. Cai; S. Hinke; G. Stangé; M. Van De Casteele; D. Pipeleers Excessively high glucose concentrations have been shown to damage tissues through stimulation of mitochondrial superoxide generation. This effect has therefore been considered as a potential cause for dysfunction and death...
