Enhancement of nitrogen dioxide-induced lipid peroxidation and DNA strand breaking by cysteine and glutathione.

Abstract

Nitrogen dioxide less than 100 ppm in air induced lipid peroxidation of liposome composed of 1-palmitoyl-2-arachidonylphosphatidylcholine as assessed by thiobarbituric acid reactivity. The nitrogen dioxide-induced lipid peroxidation was enhanced by cysteine, glutathione and bovine serum albumin. While the activity of nitrogen dioxide in air to induce single… (More)
