The important life-supporting role of hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) has evolved from bacteria to plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, and finally to mammals. Over the centuries, however, H(2)S had only been known for its toxicity and environmental hazard. Physiological importance of H(2)S has been appreciated for about a decade. It started by the discovery of endogenous H(2)S production in mammalian cells and gained momentum by typifying this gasotransmitter with a variety of physiological functions… Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide in Physiology and Diseases of the Digestive Tract
TLDR
H2S derived from gut microbes has been found to be associated with gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome, which underscores the importance of gut microbes and their production of H2S on host physiology and pathophysiology. Expand
Hydrogen sulfide as a regulator of calcium channels.
TLDR
The state of the art in this specific field is discussed, providing an updated report of H(2)S interaction with Ca(2+) channels and its functional outcomes. Expand
Endogenous generation of hydrogen sulfide and its regulation in Shewanella oneidensis
TLDR
A screen for regulators controlling endogenous H2S generation by transposon mutagenesis identified global regulator Crp to be essential to all H 2S-generating processes and Fnr and Arc, two other global regulators that have a role in respiration, are dispensable in regulating H1S generation via respiration of sulfur species.

How bacteria breathe in hydrogen sulfide-rich environments
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is now universally recognized as an endogenous signalling molecule playing a central role in human physiology. This gas, although it controls a number of physiologicalExpand
Physiological Implications of Hydrogen Sulfide in Plants: Pleasant Exploration behind Its Unpleasant Odour
TLDR
There are many functions of H2S, including the modulation of defense responses and plant growth and development, as well as the regulation of senescence and maturation. Expand
H(2)S signaling in redox regulation of cellular functions.
TLDR
The current knowledge of the antioxidant versus pro-oxidant effects of H(2)S in mammalian cells is summarized and the Janus-faced properties of this novel gasotransmitter are described. Expand
Epithelial Electrolyte Transport Physiology and the Gasotransmitter Hydrogen Sulfide
TLDR
A concept by which epithelia use their electrolyte and liquid transport machinery as defence mechanisms in order to eliminate exogenous sources for potentially harmful H2S concentrations is suggested. Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide in Physiology and Pathogenesis of Bacteria and Viruses
TLDR
A review of recent advances on the emerging role of H2S gas in the bacterial physiology and viral infections aims to summarize recent advances. Expand
Subchapter 103C – Hydrogen Sulfide
TLDR
This work has shown that H2S elicits identical effects to hypoxia in both pulmonary and systemic blood vessels from a wide range of vertebrates, and participates in cytoprotection from oxidative damage. Expand

TLDR
The ability of H(2)S to serve as either an endothelium-independent constrictor or dilator, which is relatively unique among vasoregulatory molecules, is a feature that seems to have been exploited, for unknown reasons, by nearly all vertebrates. Expand

This review examines the blood/plasma sulfide measurements that have been reported over the past 30 years from the perspective of the analytical methods used and the potential sources of error. Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide Production and Metabolism in Mammalian Tissues
Evidence for a physiological role for H2S rests primarily on observations that this compound is endogenously produced in specific mammalian tissues relevant to its proposed role as a neuromodulatorExpand

TLDR
H2S is produced in response to neuronal excitation, and alters hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP), a synaptic model for memory, and can also regulate the release of corticotropin-releasing hormone from hypothalamus. Expand
Hydrogen sulphide, a novel gasotransmitter involved in guard cell signalling.
TLDR
It is reported that H(2) S induces stomatal closure and participates in ABA-dependent signalling, possibly through the regulation of ABC transporters in guard cells, and this effect is impaired by the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter inhibitor glibenclamide. Expand

Hydrogen sulfide increases thermotolerance and lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
It is shown that nematodes exposed to H2S are apparently healthy and do not exhibit phenotypes consistent with metabolic inhibition, and studies suggest that SIR-2.1 activity may translate environmental change into physiological alterations that improve survival. Expand
Hydrogen sulfide mediates vasoactivity in an O2-dependent manner.
TLDR
In rat aorta, H( 2)S concentrations that mediate rapid contraction at high O(2) levels cause rapid relaxation at lower physiological O(1) levels, suggesting that it may be a putative vasoactive oxidation product that mediates constriction that modulates vascular tone in vivo. Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide: A Novel Mediator of Leukocyte Activation
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that in addition to the vasodilation and neuromodulation activity of H2S, it may contribute to the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases via regulating the activation of leukocytes. Expand
Reappraisal of H2S/sulfide concentration in vertebrate blood and its potential significance in ischemic preconditioning and vascular signaling.
TLDR
The results provide an autocrine or paracrine mechanism for myocardial coupling of hypoxia to H(2)S in IPC, i.e., oxygen sensing, but they fail to provide any evidence that H( 2)S signaling is mediated by the circulation. Expand
