    ..This study provides direct evidence for a novel molecular mechanism by which oxidants can induce insulin resistance via S-glutathiolation of p21ras and Erk-dependent inhibition of insulin signaling. ..

    ..This study highlights the hitherto unrecognized interaction of two ER proteins, SERCA 2 C674 and ERO1, which mediate the EC and macrophage angiogenic response to ischemia/hypoxia. ..

    ..These results demonstrate that VEGF stimulates EC migration through increased S-glutathiolation of SERCA and Ca(2+) influx in a Nox4- and H2O2-dependent manner, requiring Nox2 downstream. ..
