Figure 6: Proposed model of norepinephrine’s antioxidant effect in ovariansurface epithelial cells. Outlined above is the proposed pathway by whichnorepinephrine decreases ROS generation and subsequent DNA damage inovarian surface epithelial cells. In this model, norepinephrine acts as a rapidROS scavenger leading to a decrease in downstream DNA damage andreactive transcription of genes involved in the cellular response to oxidativestress.
