Peroxynitrite-An ugly biofactor?


Cellular damage occurring under oxidative conditions has been ascribed mainly to the formation of peroxynitrite (ONOOH/ONOO(-)) that originates from the reaction of NO(*) with O(2) (*-). The detrimental effects of peroxynitrite are exacerbated by the reaction with CO(2) that leads to ONOOC(O)O(-), which further decays to the strong oxidant radicals NO(2… (More)
