Laser flash photolysis experiments shows that the rate constant for the reaction of the glutathione thiyl radical with nitrogen monoxide to give S-nitrosoglutathione is lower than 2.8+/-0.6 x 10(7)M(-1)s(-1). The conversion of the thiyl radical to its carbon-centred form at 10(3)s(-1) exceeds the formation of S-nitrosoglutathione when physiological(More)
The reduction of oxidized glutathione GSSG by hydrated electrons and hydrogen atoms to form GSSG•⁻ is quantitative. The radical anion dissociates into GS• and GS⁻, and the S-centered radical subsequently abstracts a hydrogen intramolecularly. We observe sequential development of UV absorbance signatures that indicate the formation of both α- and(More)
Cysteine, cysteinyl-glycine, glutathione, phenylalanyl-cysteinyl-glycine, and histidyl-cysteinyl-glycine were dissolved in acidic and neutral D(2)O in the presence of the radical generator 2,2'-azobis(2-methylpropionamidine) dihydrochloride and radical mediator compounds (benzyl alcohol and 2-propanol). An exchange of H-atoms by D-atoms took place in these(More)
