This might seem surprising as reactive oxygen species are generally considered to be unhealthy.
More research produced the answer: Vitamin C induced what is known as a Fenton reaction, causing iron to react with other molecules to create reactive oxygen species that kill the TB bacteria.
Hyperoxia induces the differentiated neuronal phenotype of PC12 cells by producing reactive oxygen species. Biochem Biophys Res Commun 241:347-351.
One of these other affected enzymes, she says, may even be a source of the reactive oxygen species the Welsh group suspects of threatening UROD.
It was designed to identify the potential protective mechanism of resveratrol following noise exposure by measuring its effect on cyclooxygenase-2 (or COX-2, key to the inflammatory process) protein expression and formation of reactive oxygen species, which plays an important role in cell signaling and homeostasis.
Among the topics are the structural biology of programmed cell death, reactive oxygen species in cell fate decisions, plants, looking for the roots of death in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, matters of life and death in the immune system, cell death in acute neuronal injury, cancer biology and therapeutics, caspase-independent mitotic death, and basic principles and protocols of analyzing apoptosis.
Now researchers report in the August 2005 Journal of Clinical Investigation that even before the immune system cranks up, NADPH oxidases in pollen itself generate a type of free radical known as reactive oxygen species (ROS), which interfere with cell signaling pathways and cause the immune system to overreact.
Through the identification and purification of specific aloe chromones derived from aloe vera and other plant species, Unigen scientists have demonstrated the effectiveness of these chromones in inhibiting free radical and oxidative damage through the simultaneous suppression of free radical generation and production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), which includes oxygen-related free radicals.
The research team suggests this DNA damage may be triggered by so-called reactive oxygen species.
As a principal source of reactive oxygen species, the site of a significant amount of primary carbon metabolism and synthesis of the majority of hormone metabolic precursors, the chloroplast represents a prime target for pathogen manipulation.
The reactive oxygen species (ROS) can be generated by intake of environmental pollutants, smoke, tobacco, xenobiotic, drugs, medical materials, radiations, pesticides, industrial solvents and ozone.
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are commonly used to define the reactive molecules and free radicals originating from molecular oxygen.
