4-Phenyl-3-furoxancarbonitrile (2) affords nitric oxide under the action of thiol cofactors. Two principal products were isolated in the reaction with thiophenol: the phenylcyanoglyoxime (6) and 5-amino-3-phenyl-4-(phenylthio)isoxazole (7). Mechanisms which could account for the formation of these two products are discussed....

1. The mechanism of action and biological activity of a series of R-substituted and di-R-substituted phenylfuroxans is reported. 2. Maximal potency as vasodilators on rabbit aortic rings, precontracted with noradrenaline (1 microM), was shown by phenyl-cyano isomers and by the...

It is known that NO is involved in the regulation of intraocular pressure (IOP) and retinal function recovery after ischemia. Thus, S-nitrosoglutathione (RVC-588) and 4-phenyl-3-furoxancarbonitrile (RVC-589) as NO donor and precursor, respectively, were studied in terms of their ability to...
