AIMS Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is suggested to act as a gaseous signaling molecule in a variety of physiological processes. Its molecular mechanism of action was proposed to involve protein S-sulfhydration, that is, conversion of cysteinyl thiolates (Cys-S(-)) to persulfides (Cys-S-S(-)). A central and unresolved question is how H2S-that is, a molecule with sulfur in its lowest possible oxidation state (-2)-can lead to oxidative thiol modifications. RESULTS Using the lipid phosphatase PTEN as a… CONTINUE READING
