As detailed in Chap.  1, a myriad of metabolic processes occur within a biological system, including many redox reactions, each operating at its own redox potential. In order to obtain a deeper understanding of cellular oxidative capacity, it is important to gain a wholistic picture of cellular redox processes and the extent to which each process contributes towards the cell’s redox homoeostasis.
