Reactive Oxygen Species
- Reactive Oxygen Species
- Accession Number
Molecules or ions formed by the incomplete one-electron reduction of oxygen. These reactive oxygen intermediates include SINGLET OXYGEN; SUPEROXIDES; PEROXIDES; HYDROXYL RADICAL; and HYPOCHLOROUS ACID. They contribute to the microbicidal activity of PHAGOCYTES, regulation of signal transduction and gene expression, and the oxidative damage to NUCLEIC ACIDS; PROTEINS; and LIPIDS.
Drug Drug Description Artesunate Artesunate is an artemesinin derivative indicated for the initial treatment of severe malaria. Hydrogen peroxide A compound used as a disinfectant and sterilizer. Carbamide peroxide A medication used to loosen ear wax, whiten teeth, and clean oral wounds. Hypochlorous acid An oxyacid of chlorine (HClO) containing monovalent chlorine that acts as an oxidizing or reducing agent. Hypochlorite An antimicrobial used to treat and prevent infections of the skin and tissue. Prostaglandin G2 A cyclic endoperoxide intermediate produced by the action of CYCLOOXYGENASE on ARACHIDONIC ACID. It is further converted by a series of specific enzymes to the series 2 prostaglandins. [PubChem] Artefenomel Artefenomel has been investigated for the treatment of Malaria.
