Oxidative post-translational modifications of proteins play an important role in modulating conformation, activity, and turnover in response to a variety of biologic stimuli (1). These modifications arise as a result of both controlled enzymatic and less-controlled nonenzymatic chemically induced processes. To date, more than 200 post-translational protein modifications are known (2), creating a vast array of possible protein isoforms when 30000 gene products have the opportunity to accumulate… CONTINUE READING
