Nitric oxide (NO.), a potentially toxic molecule, has been implicated in a wide range of biological functions. Details of its biochemistry, however, remain poorly understood. The broader chemistry of nitrogen monoxide (NO) involves a redox array of species with distinctive properties and reactivities: NO+ (nitrosonium), NO., and NO- (nitroxyl anion). The integration of this chemistry with current perspectives of NO biology illuminates many aspects of NO biochemistry, including the enzymatic… Expand
Regulation of cellular thiol redox status by nitric oxide
TLDR
This article aims to review the interactions of NOx with protein and nonprotein thiols, including mechanisms of thiol modification, reversibility of NOX-mediated protein thiol modifications, and cellular defense mechanisms involved in regulating NOx-mediated modification of protein thouls. Expand
The Biological Chemistry of Nitric Oxide
Nitric oxide (NO·) is a heterodiatomic free radical that can participate in a wide range of biochemically relevant reactions to evoke a panoply of biological responses. In order to understand theExpand
Nitric oxide: Chemistry and biology
Nitric oxide plays a role in regulation of the vascular tone and platelet aggregation, neuronal transmission and cytostasis. It is generated within cells during oxidation of Larginine catalyzed by NOExpand
The Biological Chemistry of NO
The most well-characterized biological function of nitric oxide (.NO) is the elevation of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) levels by the activation of guanylyl cyclase [1-3]. Simplistically,Expand
Nitric oxide. Biochemistry, pathophysiology, and detection.
Nitric oxide is generated from the terminal guanidino nitrogen of L-arginine yielding citrulline. This reaction is catalyzed by two major types of nitric oxide synthase: inducible and constitutive.Expand
Reactive Nitrogen Species and Nitric Oxide
Free radical nitric oxide (NO) is a biological messenger with diverse functions in plant physiology, including in stress physiology. Together with NO, related molecules called reactive nitrogenExpand

TLDR
The ability of NO to act simultaneously on several unrelated biochemical nodes and its redox homeostatic properties suggest that it might be a synchronizing molecule in plants. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that S-nitroso proteins form readily under physiologic conditions and possess EDRF-like effects of vasodilation and platelet inhibition, suggesting that S -nitrosothiol groups in proteins may serve as intermediates in the cellular metabolism of NO and raise the possibility of an additional type of cellular regulatory mechanism.

Oxidation of nitrogen oxides by bound dioxygen in hemoproteins.
TLDR
Details are provided of the stoichiometric transformation through which nitric oxide is converted to nitrate with accompanying oxidation of myoglobin or hemoglobin to the corresponding iron(III) hemoprotein, including an estimate of the rate constant. Expand
Constitutive and inducible nitric oxide synthases incorporate molecular oxygen into both nitric oxide and citrulline.
TLDR
Activated J774 cells form NO from omega-hydroxyl-L-arginine, confirming the proposal that this compound is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of NO, and determining the source of the oxygen in both NO and in citrulline. Expand
Effect of nitric oxide production on the redox modulatory site of the NMDA receptor-channel complex
TLDR
The results demonstrate a new pathway for NO regulation of physiological function that is not via cGMP, but instead involves reactions with membrane-bound thiol groups on the NMDA receptor-channel complex. Expand
Nitric oxide synthase is a cytochrome P-450 type hemoprotein.
TLDR
NOS is the first example of a soluble cytochrome P-450 in eukaryotes and the presence of FAD and FMN indicates that this is theFirst catalytically self-sufficient mammalian P- 450 enzyme, containing both a reductase and a heme domain on the same polypeptide. Expand

N omega-Hydroxy-L-arginine was found to cause vasodilation in arginine-depleted rabbit aorta. It is, therefore, likely to be a biosynthetic intermediate in the conversion of arginine to nitric oxideExpand

TLDR
It is reported that SOD supports a reversible reduction of NO to NO - and that NO- may be a physiologically important form of endothelium-derived relaxing factor. Expand
Nitric oxide can modify amino acid residues in proteins.
TLDR
The results suggest that the N-terminal groups of some proteins can be modified by nitric oxide, perhaps by deamination. Expand

TLDR
Cloning of a complementary DNA for brain nitric oxide synthase reveals recognition sites for NADPH, FAD, flavin mononucleotide and calmodulin as well as phosphorylation sites, indicating that the synthase is regulated by many different factors. Expand
EPR detection of heme and nonheme iron-containing protein nitrosylation by nitric oxide during rejection of rat heart allograft.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that iron-nitrosyl EPR signals similar to those observed in macrophages and during sepsis are present in the blood and in the grafted tissue of rats during the rejection of allogeneic (but not syngeneic) heart grafts, suggesting that consequent destruction of iron-containing protein function plays an important role in the rejection response.
