Abstract

Oxidative stress plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of asthma. To effectively control oxidative stress in asthmatics, it is important to investigate the precise intracellular mechanism by which the development of immunity, rather than immune tolerance and progression of airway inflammation, is induced. In this article, we suggest that protein tyrosine phosphatases, as intracellular negative regulators, and intracellular antioxidant enzymes such as peroxiredoxins can be regulated by oxidative stress during intracellular signaling.
