Nitric oxide- and superoxide-mediated toxicity in cerebral endothelial cells.

Abstract

Nitric oxide and superoxide are free radicals that appear to contribute to the pathogenesis of a number of brain disorders, and cerebral endothelial cells are a potential target of these agents. Because of the capacity for these two agents to combine, it has been suggested that nitric oxide might either enhance or inhibit the toxic effects of superoxide. To… (More)
