Hydrogen Peroxide and Cell Signaling, Part B

Edited by

  • Lester Packer, Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Toxicology, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Southern California, USA
  • Enrique Cadenas, Pharmacology & Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Pharmacy, University of Southern California, USA

This new volume of Methods in Enzymology continues the legacy of this premier serial with quality chapters authored by leaders in the field. This is the second of three volumes on hydrogen peroxide and cell signaling, and includes chapters on such topics as the cellular steady-state of H2O2, evaluating peroxiredoxin sensitivity towards inactivation by peroxide substrates, and peroxiredoxins as preferential targets in H2O2-induced signaling.
