Nitrosation by peroxynitrite: use of phenol as a probe.


Nitrosation is an important pathway in the metabolism of nitric oxide, producing S-nitrosothiols that may be critical signal transduction species. The reaction of peroxynitrite with aromatic compounds in the pH range of 5 to 8 has long been known to produce hydroxylated and nitrated products. However, we here present evidence that peroxynitrite also can… (More)
