Free Radicals and Oxidative Stress in Neurodegenerative Diseases : Relevance of Dietary Antioxidants

  title={Free Radicals and Oxidative Stress in Neurodegenerative Diseases : Relevance of Dietary Antioxidants},
  author={R. P. Singh and S. Sharad and S. Kapur},
Cellular antioxidants are known to change their redox state, and they can be targeted for destruction, regulate oxidative processes involved in signal transduction, effect gene expression and pathways of cell proliferation and death. Oxidants and antioxidants play an important role in maintaining a balance between free radicals produced by metabolism or derived from environmental sources and the antioxidant system of the body. A complex natural antioxidant system exists in the biological… CONTINUE READING
