Peroxynitrite (ONOO(-)), formed from a reaction of superoxide and nitric oxide, is one of the most potent cytotoxic species that are known to oxidize cellular constituents including essential proteins, lipids, and DNA. In this study, the ability of sinapic acid (3,5-dimethoxy-4-hydroxycinnamic acid), isolated from Brassica juncea, to scavenge ONOO(-) was investigated. The data obtained show that sinapic acid can efficiently scavenge native ONOO(-) as well as ONOO(-) derived from the… CONTINUE READING
