Response to Detailed Aspects of Redox Signaling in Cardiac Physiology and Pathology
We thank Figtree et al1 for their interest in our recent review, “Redox Signaling in Cardiac Physiology and Pathology” published in the journal. The authors point out some additional references to their own work on the Na+–K+ pump that were not included.2 Readers of the journal will understand that it is not possible in a wide-ranging review with space limitations to comprehensively reference individual aspects of work from all groups. Nevertheless, we hope that our review provides a balanced overview and a useful pointer to the current state-of-the-art in the field of redox signaling, which may stimulate the interested reader to further explore individual aspects of this complex area.
