Roles of heme oxygenase-1 in the antiproliferative and antiapoptotic effects of nitric oxide on Jurkat T cells.

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to exert antiproliferative and antiapoptotic effects on human T cells. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), which degrades heme into biliverdin, free iron (Fe(2+)), and carbon monoxide (CO), has also been known to have antiproliferative and antiapoptotic effects. Recent evidence suggests that HO-1 is an important cellular target of NO… (More)
