Nitric oxide effect on the hemoglobin-oxygen affinity.

Abstract

The biological roles of nitric oxide (NO)-hemoglobin (Hb) derivatives are obscure. It is proposed that NO can function as an allosteric regulator of hemoglobin oxygen-binding properties. We aimed to estimate the effects of NO donors and NO-synthase substrate (L-arginine) on hemoglobin-oxygen affinity (HOA) in experiments in vitro with the various ratios… (More)
