Kynurenines are formed as part of the tryptophan metabolism and are known to exhibit pro- and anti-oxidant activities in vitro. The mapping of these biological redox-systems and identification of potential in vivo targets are therefore of great interest in cellular physiology. Here the redox-behavior of different kynurenines and anthranilic acids is evaluated electrochemically and compared to that of simple model compounds. Electrochemical results are correlated with the activity of these… CONTINUE READING
