Neuroglobin and cytoglobin expression in mice. Evidence for a correlation with reactive oxygen species scavenging.


Although essentially unknown, several functions are hypothesized for neuroglobin and cytoglobin, two new members of the globin family. In this article, we try to shed more light on their possible roles in hypoxia and detoxification of reactive oxygen species in vivo. The relative transcriptional changes of neuroglobin and cytoglobin in a situation of… (More)
