Oxidative stress-the production and accumulation of reduced oxygen intermediates such as superoxide radicals, singlet oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radicals-can damage lipids, proteins, and DNA. Many disease processes of clinical interest and the aging process involve oxidative stress in their underlying etiology. The production of reactive oxygen species is also prevalent in the world's oceans, and oxidative stress is an important component of the stress response in marine organisms… Expand
Oxidative Stress Responses in Aquatic and Marine Fishes
TLDR
This chapter will discuss the chemicals known to cause oxidative stress in fishes, and the variety of small molecule and enzymatic defenses employed by fish to counteract the effects of ROS. Expand
Oxidative Stress in Tropical Marine Ecosystems
T he accumulation of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere has had profound effects on the geochemistry, physiology, and evolution of life on the planet. However, most organisms must also contend with theExpand
Role of redox metabolism for adaptation of aquatic animals to drastic changes in oxygen availability.
TLDR
A novel explanation for the biochemical and molecular mechanisms involved in this phenomenon that could be triggered by hypoxia-induced ROS formation is proposed and the connections among oxygen sensing, oxidative damage and regulation of the endogenous antioxidant defense apparatus in animals adapted to many natural or man-made challenges of the aquatic environment are discussed.

TLDR
In this MiniReview several potential natural sources of oxidative stress are considered: endogenous ROS formation, chemical oxidation of reduced species at oxic-anoxic interfaces, H2 O2 production by lactic acid bacteria, the oxidative burst of phagocytes and the redox-cycling of secreted small molecules.

Oxidative stress and bivalves: a proteomic approach
TLDR
This article explores the background to these developments and assesses the practice and future potential of proteomics in the study of oxidative stress in bivalves. Expand
A comparative and evolutionary approach to oxidative stress in fish: A review
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oxidative stress plays a key role in shaping fish's responses to environmental change as well as life history strategies, and how emerging threats affect oxidative stress parameters in fish is described. Expand
Mechanisms of oxidative stress in plants: From classical chemistry to cell biology

From molecules to living systems: historical and contemporary issues in oxidative stress and antioxidant ecology
TLDR
This goal is to provide ecologists with an accessible summary of the biochemical basis and conceptual frameworks behind oxidative stress and antioxidants, the research questions and hypotheses that are generated by incorporating antioxidants and oxidative stress into models of life-history theory, ageing, mate selection, and honest signalling, and the trends in the evidence that have emerged from initial studies in these areas.

Antioxidant response mechanism of freshwater microalgae species to reactive oxygen species production: a mini review
ABSTRACT Molecular oxygen is essential to freshwater microalgae but its metabolic by-product known as reactive oxygen species (ROS) is toxic at higher levels leading to oxidative stress. FreshwaterExpand

Reduced enzymatic antioxidative defense in deep-sea fish.
TLDR
The adjustment of the activity of SOD and GPX to the decreased metabolic activity associated with deep-sea living suggests that these antioxidative defense mechanisms are used primarily against metabolically produced ROS, whereas the maintenance of CAT activity throughout all depths could be indicative of another role.

Cellular response to oxidative stress: Signaling for suicide and survival *
TLDR
The various signaling pathways known to be activated in response to oxidative stress in mammalian cells, the mechanisms leading to their activation, and their roles in influencing cell survival are discussed. Expand
Peroxisomes as a source of reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide signal molecules in plant cells.
TLDR
The signal molecule-generating capacity of peroxisomes can have important implications for cellular metabolism in plants, particularly under biotic and abiotic stress. Expand

TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge on pro- and antioxidant processes in marine invertebrates and fish, and relates reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation in polar ectotherms to homeoviscous adaptations of membrane and storage lipids, as well as to tissue hypoxia and re-oxygenation during physiological stress.

Seasonal variations of susceptibility to oxidative stress in Adamussium colbecki, a key bioindicator species for the Antarctic marine environment.
TLDR
The results suggest the occurrence of metabolic changes which mainly influence intracellular formation of ROO* and *OH, with more limited effects on HOONO, with a typical constraint in Antarctic research at Terra Nova Bay. Expand
Free radicals and chemiluminescence as products of the spontaneous oxidation of sulfide in seawater, and their biological implications.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that oxygen- and sulfur-centered free radicals are produced during the oxidation of sulfide in seawater, and a reaction pathway for sulfide oxidation that is consistent with observations is proposed, providing a possible mechanism for the unexplained light emission from hydrothermal vents.

Elevated temperatures and ultraviolet radiation cause oxidative stress and inhibit photosynthesis in ymbiotic dinoflagellates
TLDR
A role for oxidative stress in the inhibition of photosynthesis by UV radiation and elevated temperatures is confirmed and the addition of exogenous scavengers of active oxygen improves photosynthetic performance, but not to pre-exposure rates. Expand
Different Regulatory Mechanisms Modulate the Expression of a Dinoflagellate Iron-Superoxide Dismutase*
TLDR
Daily (circadian) and metal-induced up-regulation of Fe-SOD expression in L. polyedrum are mediated by different regulatory pathways, allowing biochemically distinct changes appropriate to oxidative challenges. Expand

DNA damage and oxygen radical toxicity.
TLDR
It is proposed that the cell may also decrease such toxicity by diminishing available NAD(P)H and by utilizing oxygen itself to scavenge active free radicals into superoxide, which is then destroyed by superoxide dismutase. Expand
