    The mediators nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide (O[sub 2, sup -]) are known to regulate cell death and survival. In mesangial cells (MC), NO induced apoptosis and in higher concentrations necrosis. Intriguingly, cogeneration of NO and O[sub 2, sup -] in a balanced ratio promoted cell protection....
