Determining the role of NADPH oxidases in the context of virus infection is an emerging area of research, with accumulating evidence revealing distinct facets of the involvement of NOX/DUOX in host antiviral and pro-inflammatory responses and in the control of the epithelial barrier integrity. In this Review Article commissioned for the NADPH Oxidase review series, the authors summarize the current knowledge of the role of individual NOX/DUOX isoforms expressed in the lung epithelium in the context of respiratory virus infections and highlight potential opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
