Peroxynitrite: a two-faced metabolite of nitric oxide.

Abstract

The discovery that nitric oxide (NO) reacts with superoxide (O2.-) forming peroxynitrite (ONOO-) (1) and the proof that this reaction occurs in vivo (2,3) holds enormous implications for the understanding of free radicals in biological systems. Not only in mammalian defense mechanisms against microorganisms, but also in pathophysiology during overexposure… (More)
