RATIONALE Human skin contains photolabile nitric oxide derivates like nitrite and S-nitroso thiols, which after UVA irradiation, decompose and lead to the formation of vasoactive NO. OBJECTIVE Here, we investigated whether whole body UVA irradiation influences the blood pressure of healthy volunteers because of cutaneous nonenzymatic NO formation. METHODS AND RESULTS As detected by chemoluminescence detection or by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy in vitro with human skin… CONTINUE READING
