The reactions of human hemoglobin and sperm whale myoglobin with ethyl nitrite under aerobic conditions have been examined in kinetic detail. Ethyl nitrite converts two equivalents of oxyhemoglobin or oxymyoglobin to their oxidized counterparts with concurrent production of one equivalent...

A method to maintain organ blood flow during laparoscopic surgery has not been developed. Here we determined if ethyl nitrite, an S-nitrosylating agent that would maintain nitric oxide bioactivity (the major regulator of tissue perfusion), might be an effective intervention...

Inhaled nitric oxide (NO) has been used to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia, but with variable results. Ethyl nitrite (ENO) forms S-nitrosothiols more readily than does NO, and resists higher-order nitrogen oxide formation. Because S-nitrosylation is a key pathway mediating many NO...

Gas chromatography--mass spectrometry demonstrates the presence of ethyl nitrite in the breath of volunteers subjects who smoke and drink concurrently. The mutagenic compound is quantitated at the ppb level by gas chromatography with the selective electron capture detector. The compound...
