The production of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species occurs as a consequence of aerobic metabolism. Mitochondrial oxidants are increasingly viewed less as byproducts of metabolism and more as important signaling molecules. Here, I review several notable examples, including the cellular response to hypoxia, aspects of innate immunity, the regulation of autophagy, and stem cell self-renewal capacity, where evidence suggests an important regulatory role for mitochondrial oxidants.
