Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) produced under oxidative stress are known to damage all cellular biomolecules (lipids, sugars, proteins and polynucleotides). ROS/RNS is often […]

[1] demonstrated ATP release from the rabbit bladder and concluded: ‘… ATP is released from the urothelium as a sensory mediator … ’, they opened a new field of research with focus on urothelial signaling mechanisms and afferent nerve functions in bladder control.
