Application

3-Nitro-L-tyrosine has been used in:
  • western blot analysis to quantify the nitrotyrosine levels in mice tissue protein
  • Murashige–Skoog medium to treat wild type and mitogen-activated protein kinase 6 (mpk6)-2 mutant seedlings for inferring the connection between nitric oxide (NO) and MPK6 functions in the regulation of mitotic microtubule organization
  • immunocytochemistry

Packaging

5, 10, 25 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

3-Nitro-L-tyrosine is an oxidant and cytotoxic agent. 3-Nitrotyrosine serves as a biological marker of proteins modified by nitrogen-free radical species in systemic autoimmunogenic conditions. It is a marker for oxidative damage mediated by peroxynitrite. Nitrotyrosine is associated with VEGF-C expression and lymph node metastasis in breast cancer. 3-Nitrotyrosine is produced due to oxidative/nitrosative stress-mediated chemical modifications such as nitration of proteins, which is observed in lung carcinogenesis.
