The current study explored potential redox mechanisms of nitric oxide (NO)‐induced inhibition of DNA synthesis in cultured human and rat aortic smooth muscle cells. Exposure to S‐nitrosothiols, DETA‐NONOate and NO itself inhibited ongoing DNA synthesis and S phase progression in a concentration‐dependent manner, as measured by thymidine incorporation and flow cytometry. Inhibition by NO donors occurred by release of NO, as detected by chemiluminescence and judged by the effects of NO scavengers… 
Thioredoxin restores nitric oxide-induced inhibition of protein kinase C activity in lung endothelial cells
TLDR
Results indicate that NO-induced inhibition of PKC isoforms is associated with S-nitrosylation-mediated disulfide formation of active site thiols in PKC-ζ as the disulfides reducing agent DTT and/or the thioredoxin enzyme system restore PKC -ζ catalytic activity.
S-nitrosothiols inhibit uterine smooth muscle cell proliferation independent of metabolism to NO and cGMP formation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that RSNOs inhibit uterine smooth muscle cell proliferation independent of NO and the presence of a RSNO-dependent but NO-independent pathway of inhibiting DNA synthesis in uterine smoother muscle cells is demonstrated.
Cellular and Biochemical Regulation of Cdc25A Phosphatase by Nitrosative Stress
TLDR
Novel regulation of CDC25A translation and activity is described, and a model wherein selective inhibition of Cdc25A phosphatase-dependent and independent activities can occur under nitrosative stress is identified, and implicate Cdc 25A as a regulator of apoptotic threshold following nitrosatively-challenged cells by priming ASK-1 for activation.
The Role of Nitric Oxide in Immune Response Against Trypanosoma Cruzi Infection
TLDR
The multiple mechanisms by which NO can directly or indirectly affect the generation of an immune response against T. cruzi infection are discussed.
The effects of nitric oxide on the immune response during giardiasis.
TLDR
The balance between giardial arginine consumption and epithelial NO production could contribute to the variability of the duration and severity of infections by this ubiquitous parasite.
Oxidative Thiol Modifications in Pro- And Eukaryotic Organisms
TLDR
This introduction will focus on three well-characterized eukaryotic proteins that use thiol-based redox switches to influence gene transcription, metabolism and signal transduction, and the redox-sensitive protein tyrosine phosphatase PTP1B to illustrate that reversibility is one of the fundamental aspects of red ox-regulation.

Differential regulation of DNA synthesis by nitric oxide and hydroxyurea in vascular smooth muscle cells.
TLDR
Nitrovasodilators did not produce a detectable NO signal, and NO scavengers had no influence on its inhibition of DNA synthesis, suggesting that NO does not mediate the inhibitory action of hydroxyurea in the authors' system.
Dual cell cycle‐specific mechanisms mediate the antimitogenic effects of nitric oxide in vascular smooth muscle cells
TLDR
NO is the first endogenous substance to have been shown to inhibit mitogenesis beyond the restriction point in late G1 phase, suggesting that it plays a role in regulation of cells that have lost normal mechanisms of G1 growth control, such as the hyperproliferative smooth muscle cells noted in hypertension and restenosis.

DNA damage and mutation in human cells exposed to nitric oxide in vitro.
TLDR
Experiments in which NO was added to intact human cells and to aerobic solutions of DNA, RNA, guanine, or adenine produced a 40- to 50-fold increase in hypoxanthine and xanthine in cellular DNA, which are believed to account for the mutagenicity of nitric oxide toward bacteria and mammalian cells.
Inhibition of tumor cell ribonucleotide reductase by macrophage-derived nitric oxide
TLDR
No gas and lysates of activated macrophages that generated comparable amounts of NO led to the same degree of inhibition of partially purified RR from L1210 mouse lymphoma cells, suggesting that cytostasis by activated Macrophages and by hydroxyurea has comparable mechanisms, including, but probably not limited to, inhibition of RR.

TLDR
The efficacy of different antioxidants to favorably influence the molecular mechanisms implicated in human disease should be a critical determinant of its selection for clinical studies.
Mechanism of Nitric Oxide Release from S-Nitrosothiols*
TLDR
Equilibrium constants for the transnitrosation reactions of reduced glutathione, either with S-nitroso-N-acetyl-DL-penicillamine or with S -nitro so-L-cysteine indicate that S- Nitrosoglutathione formation is favored, indicating that the biological relevance of S-Nitrosothiol decomposition is discussed.
The chemistry of the S-nitrosoglutathione/glutathione system.
TLDR
The products noted above account quantitatively for virtually all of the GSNO nitrogen consumed during the reaction, and it is now possible to construct a complete set of pathways for the complex transformations arising from GSNO + GSH.
Biochemistry of nitric oxide and its redox-activated forms.
TLDR
The integration of this chemistry with current perspectives of NO biology illuminates many aspects of NO biochemistry, including the enzymatic mechanism of synthesis, the mode of transport and targeting in biological systems, the means by which its toxicity is mitigated, and the function-regulating interaction with target proteins.
N-acetylcysteine potentiates platelet inhibition by endothelium-derived relaxing factor.
TLDR
The data show that the reduced thiol N-acetylcysteine potentiates platelet inhibition by endothelium-derived relaxing factor and this effect is associated with increasing intracellular platelet cyclic GMP levels.
