Inhibition of reactive nitrogen species in vitro and ex vivo by trypsin inhibitor from sweet potato 'Tainong 57' storage roots.

Abstract

Peroxynitrite (ONOO-), formed from a reaction of superoxide and nitric oxide, is one of the most potent cytotoxic species known to oxidize cellular constituents including essential proteins, lipids, and DNA. ONOO- induces cellular and tissue injury, resulting in several human diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, and stroke. Due to the lack… (More)
