Nitrogen monoxide (NO) affects cellular iron metabolism due to its high affinity for this metal ion. Indeed, NO has been shown to increase the mRNA binding activity of the iron-regulatory protein 1, which is a major regulator of iron homeostasis. Recently, we have shown that NO generators increase (59)Fe efflux from cells prelabeled with (59)Fe-transferrin… CONTINUE READING
