The Role Of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) In The Progression Of Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalent metabolic disease currently known to man. Its hallmarks are pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance. The Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a little-understood factor as far as the progression of Type 2 diabetes is concerned. Therefore, in this article, I will shed some light on what it is… Continue reading The Role Of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) In The Progression Of Type 2 Diabetes

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a type of unstable molecule that contains oxygen and that easily reacts with other molecules in a cell. A buildup of reactive oxygen species in cells may cause damage to DNA, RNA, and proteins, and may cause cell death. Reactive oxygen species are free radicals, also called oxygen radicals. Traditionally,… Continue reading Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)
