Oxidative Stress and Redox Signalling in Parkinson’s Disease (Issues in Toxicology) 1st Edition

Oxidative Stress and Redox Signalling in Parkinson’s Disease (Issues in Toxicology) 1st Edition

Parkinson’s Disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder affecting millions of people worldwide. In order to find neuroprotective strategies, a clear understanding of the mechanisms involved in the dopaminergic death of cells that progresses the disease is needed. Oxidative stress can be defined as an imbalance between the production of reactive species and the ability to detoxify them and their intermediates or by-products. Oxidative damage to lipids, proteins, and […]
