Coronary artery superoxide production and nox isoform expression in human coronary artery disease.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Oxidative stress plays important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to determine the sources and selected molecular mechanisms of oxidative stress in CAD. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined basal and NAD(P)H oxidase-mediated superoxide (O2*-) production using lucigenin chemiluminescence, ferricytochrome c and dihydroethidium fluorescence in human coronary arteries from 19 CAD and 17 non-CAD patients undergoing heart transplantati...
