Lipoamide dehydrogenase and diaphorase catalyzed conversion of some NO donors to NO and reduction of NO scavenger 2-phenyl-4,4,5,5-tetramethylimidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide (PTIO).

Abstract

One of the key functions of nitric oxide (NO) in human is to dilate blood vessels. We tested glycerol trinitrate (GTN) and other well-known NO donors together with those bearing a >C=N-OH group for possible conversion to NO (or nitrites, respectively) by diaphorase (DP) and lipoamide dehydrogenase (LAD). Both, DP and LAD were unable to convert formamidoxime… (More)
