The present article focuses on the possible existence of transport forms of nitrogen monoxide (NO) in biological tissues. Stimulated by the present controversy on the identity of L-arginine-derived endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF) experiments were designed to clarify whether or not EDRF is a nitrosyl-iron complex. Synthetic dinitrosyl-iron-di-L-cysteine--(NO)2Fe(L-cysteine)2, a low molecular mass dinitrosyl-iron-dihiolate complex (DNIC)--exhibits similar pharmacological properties as… CONTINUE READING
