Chapter 21 Paraquat-induced production of reactive oxygen species in brain mitochondria.


Paraquat (PQ) is a prototypical redox cycling agent commonly used experimentally to generate reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress. Recently, PQ has also come under investigation as a potential environmental neurotoxin associated with increased risk for neurodegenerative disease developing after chronic exposure. The interactions of PQ with… (More)
