Modulation of superoxide-dependent oxidation and hydroxylation reactions by nitric oxide.

Abstract

The rapid and spontaneous interaction between superoxide (O2-.) and nitric oxide (NO) to yield the potent oxidants peroxynitrite (ONOO-) and peroxynitrous acid (ONOOH), has been suggested to represent an important pathway by which tissue may be injured during inflammation. Although several groups of investigators have demonstrated substantial oxidizing and… (More)
