Nitric oxide synthase activity in muscle foods.


Nitric oxide is enzymatically produced in animals by nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Nitric oxide reacts with superoxide to form peroxynitrite, which initiates oxidative reactions. To assess the potential for nitric oxide formation in muscle, NOS activity was determined in fresh muscle (<8 h post-mortem) from several species under conditions expected in muscle… (More)
