Interaction Information:

Comment ROS formation in Ang-stimulated cells was essentially caused by the activation of NAD(P)H oxidase and was quite completely blunted via apocynin inhibition of NAD(P)H oxidase. The combined action of apocynin and MET (metformin) led to a slightly and not significantly higher inhibition than the one of MET alone or apocynin alone. The authors conclude that the target for MET in Ang-stimulated BAEC would be NAD(P)H oxidase.
