The Very Large Gorilla Sitting in the Room? Adenosylcobalamin is the Missing Link: its Radical and Tetrahydrobiopterin are the Principal in vivo Catalysts for Mammalian Nitric Oxide Synthases.

In vivo, haem-centred NOS catalysis may, in fact, be the back-up NOS reaction, and its predominance in the absence of AdoCbl, with a consequent lowering of the .

Kinetic Studies on the Reaction between Dicyanocobinamide and Hypochlorous Acid

Results illustrate functional differences in the corrin ring environments toward binding of diatomic ligands and suggest that HOCl binds in an irreversible one-step mechanism.

Biphasic Modulation of NOS Expression, Protein and Nitrite Products by Hydroxocobalamin Underlies Its Protective Effect in Endotoxemic Shock: Downstream Regulation of COX-2, IL-1β, TNF-α, IL-6, and HMGB1 Expression

Parenteral hydroxocobalamin produces a complex, time- and organ-dependent, selective regulation of NOS/•NO during endotoxaemia, corollary regulation of downstream inflammatory mediators, and increased survival.

Extended Duration Infusion of Hydroxocobalamin for Vasoplegic Rescue in Septic Shock

A case of refractory septic shock is presented, which resolved after an extended duration infusion of high-dose HCB, and it is hoped that this case will foster further exploration regarding the safety, dosing, and efficacy of HCB when administered for vasopressor refractor septicshock.

Is Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase a Moonlighting Protein Whose Day Job is Cholesterol Sulfate Synthesis? Implications for Cholesterol Transport, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

It is proposed that sulfate plays an essential role in HDL-A1 cholesterol trafficking and in sulfation of heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs), both critical to lysosomal recycling (or disposal) of cellular debris.

An In Vitro Model of Gastric Inflammation and Treatment with Cobalamin

Questions regarding the concentration of cobalamin administered clinically to restore cell functionality are raised, feasibly allowing the patient to receive reduced quantity of the vitamin more regularly, providing the patient with levels which are akin to dietary intake.

Vitamin B12 modulates Parkinson’s disease LRRK2 kinase activity through allosteric regulation and confers neuroprotection

5′-deoxyadenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl), a physiological form of the essential micronutrient vitamin B12 as a mixed-type allosteric inhibitor of LRRK2 kinase activity, is identified as a novel class of L RRK2Kinase modulator with a distinct mechanism, which can be harnessed to develop new LRRk2-based PD therapeutics in the future.



Cobalamins and Cobinamides Inhibit Nitric Oxide Synthase Enzymatic Activity.

It is shown for the first time that cobalamins and cobinamides can potently inhibit the enzymatic function of NOS and synthesis of NO.

Nitric Oxide Scavenging by the Cobalamin Precursor Cobinamide*

It is concluded that cobinamide is an effective intra- and extracellular NO scavenger whose modest toxicity can be eliminated by cobalamin.

Nitric oxide interactions with cobalamins: biochemical and functional consequences.

It is found that nitrosylcobalamin had diminished ability to serve as a cofactor for the enzyme methionine synthase, and that aquocobalamin could quench NO-mediated inhibition of cell proliferation.

Cobalamin in inflammation III — glutathionylcobalamin and methylcobalamin/adenosylcobalamin coenzymes: the sword in the stone? How cobalamin may directly regulate the nitric oxide synthases

The absence of homology between the NOS and methionine synthase/methylmalonyl CoA mutase may enable GSCbl to regulate both sets of enzymes simultaneously by completely separate mechanisms, and cobalamin may exert central control over both pro-and anti-inflammatory systems.

Inhibition of nitric oxide synthase isoforms by porphyrins.

Protoporphyrin IX inhibition of nitric oxide synthase is a multisite, positively cooperative inhibition that exhibits a Hill coefficient of 2.3 for the iNOS isoform and may contribute to the pathophysiology of these conditions.

Reactions of nitric oxide with vitamin B12 and its precursor, cobinamide.

The affinity of Cbi(II) for NO is so high that it is a very efficient NO trap and, consequently, may have important biomedical uses and be the rate-limiting step in the reaction of Cbl(III) at low pH.

Inhibition of cobalamin-dependent enzymes by cobalamin analogues in rats.

It is concluded that all parts of the cbl molecule are necessary for in vivo cbl-dependent enzyme activity and that modifications of the side chains of the B and C rings are associated with potent in vivo inhibition of c Bl-dependent enzymes activity.

Differential Activation of Nitric-oxide Synthase Isozymes by Calmodulin-Troponin C Chimeras*

The role of the four CaM EF hands in the activation of eNOS and iNOS is evaluated and it is proposed that cytochrome c reduction is a measure of the release of the FMN domain from the reductase complex.

Nitric oxide synthases: structure, function and inhibition.

This review concentrates on advances in nitric oxide synthase (NOS) structure, function and inhibition made in the last seven years, during which time substantial advances have been made in our

Interactions between hydroxocobalamin and nitric oxide (NO): evidence for a redox reaction between NO and reduced cobalamin and reversible NO binding to oxidized cobalamin.

Interactions of nitric oxide (NO) with various cobalamin species have been examined, apparently for the first time, with both absorption and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, and it is found that reactions of Cb species could play a role in altering intracellular and intratissue levels of NO.
