Figure 1: The antibubble biomachinery in a normal cell and in AD. The upper part depicts the normal NADPH oxidase-NO antibubble biomachinery. To the side, an additional system depicts the hypothetical oxygen bubble overload in D. The overwhelming of the NADPH oxidase-NO antibubble biomachinery is assisted by the superoxide dismutase, the catalase and finally the involvement of iron. Note that iron has not been depicted [1].
