-α), interleukin 1β (IL1β), and interferon-γ (INF-γ) induces the synthesis of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitrogen species (RNS) via inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS; Rabinovitch & Suarez-Pinzon 1998 , Storling et al . 2005 ), which inhibit insulin

hormones are able to profoundly affect thyroid physiology and pathophysiology. In the present review, we focus on the known effects of estrogen on the thyroid gland and the possible involvement of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the marked sexual

( Ceriello et al . 2009 b ). Although the molecular mechanism behind HGM is not fully understood, several studies suggest that reactive oxygen species (ROS) play an important role in the development of vascular HGM in diabetes ( Ihnat et al . 2007

possible mechanisms by which progesterone exerts its effects on β-cells; however, studies have shown that this hormone is able to modulate the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress in different cell types ( Nguyen & Syed 2011
