The role of peroxynitrite in chemical preconditioning with 3-nitropropionic acid in rat hearts.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES 3-Nitropropionic acid (3-NP), an irreversible inhibitor of succinate dehydrogenase, has been shown to protect against ischemic injury in the brain and in the heart via a preconditioning-like effect; however, the cellular mechanism is not known. The aim of the present study was to investigate if 3-NP pretreatment reduces infarct size and if… (More)
