Cell Signaling and Gene Regulation by Oxidative Stress

  • Mohinder Bansal
  • Naveen Kaushal


Cell signaling is a part of the complex system of communication that governs the basic cellular activities and actions. In this chapter general cell signaling elements, redox signaling and oxidative stress-mediated modulation of the transcription factors will be presented. With the help of specific examples of signaling pathways in metabolic and pathological conditions related to oxidative stress will facilitate understanding of various system pathologies.
