The dissociation of iron from heme is a major factor in iron metabolism and the cellular concentrations of the metal correlate with heme degradation. We tested the hypotheses that (1) exposure to a product of heme catabolism, carbon monoxide (CO), alters iron homeostasis in the lung and in cultured respiratory epithelial cells; (2) this response includes both decreased uptake and increased release of cell metal; and (3) the effects of CO on cell function track changes in metal homeostasis.

Iron decreases biological effects of ozone exposure

It is concluded that greater availability of iron after O3 exposure does not augment biological effects, and on the contrary, increased available iron decreases the biological effects of O3 Exposure in cells, animals and humans.

This chapter will discuss the transport of carbon monoxide from the environment to the tissues of the body and physiological effects on blood-borne cells and perivascular tissues and how nitric oxide and hydrogen sulfide influence CO effects.

Efficacy and Safety of Inhaled Carbon Monoxide during Pulmonary Inflammation in Mice

Some protective role for inhaled CO is confirmed during pulmonary inflammation, although this required a dose that produced carboxyhemoglobin values close to potentially toxic levels for humans, and increased lung permeability.

Medicinal Chemistry and Therapeutic Applications of the Gasotransmitters NO, CO, and H2S and their Prodrugs

The medicinal chemistry and the therapeutic applications of NO, CO, and H2S and their prodrugs are overviewed and NO is used clinically to selectively dilate the pulmonary vasculature in the therapy of the primary pulmonary hypertension of the newborn.

Immune cell characterization in the lung after acute and chronic cigarette smoke exposure in a mouse model of COPD

It is demonstrated that the composition of CS determines the dynamics of inflammatory cell recruitment in COPD mouse models and different initial inflammatory processes might contribute to COPD pathogenesis in significantly varying ways, thereby determining the outcome of the studies.

It is demonstrated that the composition of CS determines the dynamics of inflammatory cell recruitment in COPD mouse models, and different initial inflammatory processes might contribute to COPD pathogenesis in significantly varying ways, thereby determining the outcome of the studies.

Soy Biodiesel Exhaust is More Toxic than Mineral Diesel Exhaust in Primary Human Airway Epithelial Cells.

Exposure to biodiesel exhaust resulted in significantly greater cell death and a greater release of immune mediators compared to both air controls and ULSD exhaust, which has concerning implications for potential global health impacts.

Bilateral and Symmetrical Lesions in the Basal Ganglia Associated With Metabolic Acidosis in a Patient With a History of Alcohol Addiction: A Case Report

The imaging findings of metabolic acidosis, methanol poisoning, and their main differential diagnoses in neuroimaging are discussed, directing earlier diagnostic reasoning in order to initiate the most appropriate treatment promptly.

Nitrogen Monoxide (NO) and Glucose

It is demonstrated that d-Glc metabolism via the hexose monophosphate shunt resulting in the generation of GSH may be essential for NO-mediated 59Fe release, which has important implications for intracellular signaling by NO and also NO- mediated cytotoxicity of activated macrophages that is due, in part, to iron release from tumor target cells.

Iron uptake and Nramp2/DMT1/DCT1 in human bronchial epithelial cells.

It is concluded that airway epithelial cells increase mRNA and expression of the Nramp2/DMT1/DCT1 without an IRE after exposure to iron, which results in an elevated transport of iron and its probable detoxification by these cells.

Overexpression of heme oxygenase-1 in human pulmonary epithelial cells results in cell growth arrest and increased resistance to hyperoxia.

The data suggest that overexpression of HO-1 results in cell growth arrest, which may facilitate cellular protection against non-heme-mediated oxidant insult such as hyperoxia.

Hemoglobin provides protection against lethal endotoxemia in rats: the role of heme oxygenase-1.

In a rat model of lipopolysaccharide endotoxin (LPS)-induced lung injury and sepsis, it is demonstrated that the lung responds to LPS by expressing high levels of HO-1 mRNA and enzyme activity, which strongly implicateHO-1 in playing an important role in the defense against endotoxic shock, with potential therapeutic implications.
