Abstract:Oxidative stress contributes to the progression of brain injury following ischemic stroke and reperfusion. NADPH oxidase is a well-established source of superoxide in vascular disease, but its contribution to tissue injury following ischemic stroke has yet to be fully elucidated. Here we show the spatiotemporal profile of NADPH oxidase subunits Nox2 and Nox4 and concurrent superoxide generation following stroke induced by middle cerebral artery constriction in conscious rats. Nox2 mRNA was progressively up-reg…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
