OBJECTIVES To describe the importance of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, and catalase working together in human cells against toxic reactive oxygen species, their relationship with several pathophysiologic processes and their possible therapeutic implications.

Low concentrations of ROS may be beneficial or even indispensable in processes… CONTINUE READING
