Prooxidant action of xanthurenic acid and quinoline compounds: Role of transition metals in the generation of reactive oxygen species and enhanced formation of 8-hydroxy-2′-deoxyguanosine in DNA†


Xanthurenic acid, a product of tryptophan–NAD pathway, and quinoline compounds produced reactive oxygen species as a complex with iron. Aconitase, the most sensitive enzyme to oxidative stress was inactivated effectively by xanthurenic acid and to a lesser extent by 8-quinolinol in the presence of ferrous sulfate. The inactivation of aconitase was iron… (More)
