Owing to the indiscriminate reactivity of the free NO radical, intricate control mechanisms are required for storage, transport and transfer of NO to its various biological targets. Among the proposed storage components are protein-bound thionitrosyls (Rprotein–SNO) and protein-bound dinitrosyl iron complexes. Current knowledge suggests the latter are derived from iron–sulfur cluster degradation in the presence of excess NO. Mobilization of protein-bound NO could involve NO or Fe(NO)2 unit… CONTINUE READING
