Assessment of low-level superoxide in nonphagocytic cells is crucial for assessing redox-dependent signaling pathways and the role of enzymes such as the NADPH oxidase complex. However, most superoxide probes present inherent limitations. Particularly, assessment of dihydroethidium (DHE) fluorescence is limited

Mitochondrial Stress and ROS

Oxidative stress is mediated, in part, by reactive oxygen species produced by multiple cellular processes and controlled by cellular antioxidant mechanisms such as enzymatic scavengers or antioxidant modulators. Free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species, cause cellular damage via cellular.
