BeschreibungThis collection of research studies on oxidative stress underline the "emerging concept" that nitric oxide and related compounds are instrumental in these reactions, especially when applied to blood flow regulation, pathological hypoxia and physiological cell signaling processes. Nova staff editors Matata and Elahi have assembled a wide range of scientific data from contributors all over the world in order to inform biochemistry students and other researchers in the field of these latest findings.
