Differential mechanisms of nitric oxide- and peroxynitrite-induced cell death.


Nitric oxide (NO) contributes to cellular degeneration in various disorders, particularly in the nervous system. NO targets cell proteins such as soluble guanylyl cyclase, but its detrimental effects are generally attributed to its reaction product with superoxide, peroxynitrite. To understand the mechanisms of NO-induced cell stress, we studied the effects… (More)
