About this book
Expanding upon the research elucidated by the first volume of this collection, this title presents thirty additional cutting-edge chapters focusing on novel techniques for detecting ROS/RNS, unique AOX technology and applications, gene expression and biostatistics for evaluating OS-derived experimental data. The international panel of authors also provide animal models and numerous studies concentrating on mitochondria during hypoxic conditions using advanced methods for pO2, peroxynitrate, reactive S-nitrosothiols, lipid peroxides, COX, and the mitochondrial membrane potential.
