Hydrogen peroxide has been used for immunocytochemistry for eNOS. It has also been used for developing colour during detection of anti-prothrombin and anti-beta2-glycoprotein I antibodies. Additionally, it has also been used as a supplement in Hanks buffered saline solution for assessing the functional activity of myeloperoxidase.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a strong oxidizer that can induce neuronal death in cultured cortical neurons via an apoptotic pathway. Oxidative burst facilitated by hydrogen peroxide is a key mechanism of plant defense during an incompatible interaction. Hydrogen peroxide injected in transgenic rice induces cell death as well as increase resistance to both bacterial and fungal pathogens.

Oxidative burst, mediated by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), has been recognized as a key component of plant defense response during an incompatible interaction. To determine if elevated levels of H2O2 lead to cell death, activation of defense genes and enhanced resistance

Immunocytochemistry was used to localize endothelial (eNOS) and inducible (iNOS) nitric oxide synthase in human uterine tissues collected at various stages of the menstrual cycle, after exposure to exogenous progestagens, and in early pregnancy. Endothelial NOS-like immunoreactivity was detected in
