Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are a group of unstable and highly reactive molecules or free radicals typically generated as by-products of cellular processes involving molecular oxygen. In vascular cells, the excessive ROS generation results in the initiation and progression of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Therefore, a dynamic, robust, and accurate ROS detection method in the blood vessels is essential for pathophysiological research studies of the cardiovascular system.In this chapter, we… CONTINUE READING
