Responses of normal and sickle cell hemoglobin to S-nitroscysteine: implications for therapeutic applications of NO in treatment of sickle cell disease.

Abstract

Factors which govern transnitrosation reactions between hemoglobin (Hb) and low molecular weight thiols may define the extent to which S-nitrosated Hb (SNO-Hb) plays a role in NO in the control of blood pressure and other NO-dependent reactions. We show that exposure to S-nitrosylated cysteine (CysNO) produces equivalent levels of SNO-Hb for Hb A(0) and… (More)
