Nox4 ROS, a novel therapeutic target in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Seminar presented by Dr Tanya Cully, Department of Physiology

Skeletal muscle function can be affected by Ca2+ regulation within a cellular microdomain known as the triad.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) also can impact muscle function via oxidative stress and the regulation of signalling cascades. The interplay between ROS and Ca2+ signalling at the triad is poorly understood and may impact the performance of healthy and diseased muscle.

A mouse model of muscular dystrophy, the mdx mouse, displays both pathological increased Ca2+ leak via the Ryanodine receptor (RyR1), a calcium release channel, and increased NAD(P)H Oxidase (Nox) derived ROS.
