Nitrate and nitrite in biology, nutrition and therapeutics.
Inorganic nitrate and nitrite from endogenous or dietary sources are metabolized in vivo to nitric oxide (NO) and other bioactive nitrogen oxides. The nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway is emerging as anExpand

Folic acid reverts dysfunction of endothelial nitric oxide synthase.
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF), the active form of folic acid, has been reported to restore NO status in hypercholesterolemic patients. The mechanism of this effect remains to be established. WeExpand

Origin of superoxide production by endothelial nitric oxide synthase
Using fluorescence optical and electron spin resonance spectroscopy, we have investigated the production of superoxide by bovine endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS). In contrast to neuronal NOS,Expand

Whole Body UVA Irradiation Lowers Systemic Blood Pressure by Release of Nitric Oxide From Intracutaneous Photolabile Nitric Oxide Derivates
Rationale: Human skin contains photolabile nitric oxide derivates like nitrite and S-nitroso thiols, which after UVA irradiation, decompose and lead to the formation of vasoactive NO. Objective:Expand

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase reduces nitrite anions to NO under anoxia.
In this work, we demonstrate that endothelial nitric oxide synthase is capable of anoxic reduction of nitrite anions to nitric oxide at physiological pH by absorption and EPR spectroscopy andExpand

Structural and dynamic effects of oxidatively modified phospholipids in unsaturated lipid membranes.
Phospholipid hydroperoxides and phospholipid alcohols are two of the major forms of oxidatively modified phospholipids produced during oxidant stress and lipid peroxidation. The process of lipidExpand

Citrulline a More Suitable Substrate than Arginine to Restore NO Production and the Microcirculation during Endotoxemia
Background Impaired microcirculation during endotoxemia correlates with a disturbed arginine-nitric oxide (NO) metabolism and is associated with deteriorating organ function. Improving the organExpand

Maternal Supplementation With Citrulline Increases Renal Nitric Oxide in Young Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats and Has Long-Term Antihypertensive Effects
NO deficiency is associated with development of hypertension. Defects in the renal citrulline-arginine pathway or arginine reabsorption potentially reduce renal NO in prehypertensive spontaneouslyExpand

New insights into the coordination chemistry and molecular structure of copper(II) histidine complexes in aqueous solutions.
Aqueous solutions of Cu2+/histidine (his) (1:2) have been analyzed in parallel with infrared, Raman, ultraviolet/visible/near-infrared, electron spin resonance, and X-ray absorption spectroscopy inExpand

Wine polyphenols and ethanol do not significantly scavenge superoxide nor affect endothelial nitric oxide production.
Epidemiological studies have shown that moderate intake of red wine reduces the risk of coronary heart disease. It has been proposed that the antiatherogenic effect be due to the scavenging ofExpand
