H(2)O(2) modulates purinergic-dependent calcium signalling in osteoblast-like cells.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have long been considered as toxic by-products of aerobic metabolism and appear involved in the pathogenesis of degenerative diseases. The physiological role of ROS as second messengers in cell signal transduction is, on the other hand, increasingly recognized. Here we investigated the effects of H(2)O(2) and extracellular… CONTINUE READING
