Description

Reactive oxygen species are highly reactive chemical elements that include among others, oxygen as a core species. A variety of ROS have been identified in biological systems. They are ubiquitously produced in the human body especially in mitochondria via a number of biochemical reactions. On one hand they play positive biological roles; but if high levels of ROS prevail, they can induce significant damage (also known as oxidative stress). Damage to cellular components plays significant roles in causing a variety of human diseases. This book will be a comprehensive review of reactive oxygen species, the mechanisms by which they are produced, and the role they play in various diseases.
