The new pathway nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide (NO) has emerged as a physiological alternative to the classical enzymatic pathway for NO formation from l-arginine. Nitrate is converted to nitrite by commensal bacteria in the oral cavity and the nitrite formed is then...

The literature provides evidence that metabolic nitric oxide (NO) release mediates the cytotoxic activities (against human leukemia and prostate cancer xenografts in mice) of JS-K, a compound of structure R(2)N-N(O)=NO-Ar for which R(2)N is 4-(ethoxycarbonyl)piperazin-1-yl and Ar is 2,4-dinitrophenyl. Here...

The gasotransmitter hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S), which is generated by cystathionine γ-lyase (CSE), signals by modifying proteins through S-sulfhydration and potentially other mechanisms. A target protein for H(2)S is endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), an enzyme that generates nitric oxide (NO)...

Previous studies in non-human blood vessels and in platelets have demonstrated that under hypoxic conditions release of NO from nitrite (NO2(-)) is potentiated by deoxyhaemoglobin. In the current study, we characterized hypoxic potentiation of NO2(-) effects in human vasculature and...
