Homocysteine Disulphides and Vascular Disease


The total plasma concentration of homocysteine is a marker of this amino acid's atherogenic potential. However, the homocysteine pool exists almost entirely as oxidized homocysteine equivalents (OHcyE), composed of homocystine and cysteine-homocysteine disulphides (20-30%), and protein-bound disulphide (70-80%). We have noticed that the total concentration… (More)
