Emerging evidence suggests that renal oxidative stress and nitric oxide (NO) deficiency is linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications. Mechanisms are not clear, but exaggerated NADPH oxidase-derived superoxide production and NO deficiency may impair renal autoregulation. Using a translational design, our projects aim to characterize the mechanisms for superoxide and NO formation, interaction and influence on renal, cardiovascular and metabolic functions in health and disease.
