What are the beneficial activities of reactive oxygen species (ROS)?
Posted May 18, 2020
Under physiological conditions, ROS levels are carefully regulated. Developing a balance between the overproduction of ROS and its utilization is important in maintaining healthy redox processes within the cells. ROS is an important component of the killing response of immune cells to microbial invasion. It also operates as messengers in normal cell signal transduction, cell cycling, gene expression and homeostasis.
