Abstract: The reduction-oxidation (redox) reaction involves a change in the oxidation state of molecules where a molecule that donates an electron is oxidized and a molecule that accepts an electron is reduced. The NADPH oxidase of myeloid cells, NOX2, is a major source of oxidants in the form of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are short-lived oxygen derivatives. NOX2-derived ROS have been ascribed a pivotal role in the elimination of pathogens and may be toxic also to host cells and tissues. ROS may... more
