BACKGROUND: Nitric oxide (NO) production is increased in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and measurement of NO metabolites may be useful for monitoring disease activity. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To characterise urinary nitrite levels, a stable metabolite of NO, in IBD and to evaluate its potential as a marker of disease activity. METHODS: Twelve-hour urinary nitrites were measured by the microplate assay method in 46 patients with IBD (active; n = 32). Urinary samples from 16 healthy individuals served as controls. RESULTS: Increased levels of urinary nitrites were found in patients with active IBD compared with those with inactive IBD. Twenty-eight out of 32 patients (87.5%) with active IBD had detectable levels of nitrite in their urine as compared with 2/14 (14.3%) patients with inactive IBD. None of the 16 healthy controls had detectable urinary nitrite. Twelve-hour urinary nitrite in active compared with inactive IBD: 5 0.7 versus 0.1+/-0.04 micromol (P , 0.05). There was good correlation ...
Nitrite inhalant use is very common among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China. However, there is lack of national representative data on use among Chinese MSM, and the mechanism of how nitrite inhalant use impacts HIV infection in MSM is unclear. This meta-analysis aims to understand the characteristics of Chinese MSM nitrite inhalant users and to determine the associations between nitrite inhalant use and sexual behaviors, the prevalence of HIV, and the prevalence of syphilis. We searched PubMed, Web of Science, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, Chinese Wanfang Data, and VIP Chinese Journal Database for relevant literature published from January 1985 to December 2017. Fifteen eligible studies, with a total of 18,981 Chinese MSM participants, were included. Compared with nitrite inhalant nonusers, users were more likely to be younger, have a higher level of education, and seek sexual partners using the Internet. Nitrite inhalant users were more likely to engage in high-risk sexual

UNLABELLED Nitrate reduction to nitrite in oil fields appears to be more thermophilic than the subsequent reduction of nitrite. Concentrated microbial consortia from oil fields reduced both nitrate and nitrite at 40 and 45°C but only nitrate at and above 50°C. The abundance of the nirS gene correlated with mesophilic nitrite reduction activity. Thauera and Pseudomonas were the dominant mesophilic nitrate-reducing bacteria (mNRB), whereas Petrobacter and Geobacillus were the dominant thermophilic NRB (tNRB) in these consortia. The mNRB Thauera sp. strain TK001, isolated in this study, reduced nitrate and nitrite at 40 and 45°C but not at 50°C, whereas the tNRB Petrobacter sp. strain TK002 and Geobacillus sp. strain TK003 reduced nitrate to nitrite but did not reduce nitrite further from 50 to 70°C. Testing of 12 deposited pure cultures of tNRB with 4 electron donors indicated reduction of nitrate in 40 of 48 and reduction of nitrite in only 9 of 48 incubations. Nitrate is injected into high
Herein, we demonstrate that the BP-lowering effects of nitrite are enhanced in an experimental model of hypertension and that these effects of nitrite, at least in part, are because of the nitrite reductase activity of erythrocytic XOR. We translate these observations to the clinical setting by demonstration in a proof-of-principle study in hypertensive patients, of similar enhanced bioactivity of nitrite, achieved through dietary provision of inorganic nitrate, and involvement of erythrocytic XOR.. Nitrite caused dose-dependent decreases in BP in SHR, with significant decreases becoming first evident at circulating concentrations of nitrite of ≈1×10−6 mol/L. This concentration falls within the range of physiological levels of circulating nitrite, that is, 0.2 to 5.0×10−6 mol/L that have been reported in healthy humans.26,30-32 Crucially at this dose, nitrite had minimal effects on BP in the normotensive WKY control. In our studies, the potassium nitrite salt decreased BP in a ...
On several occasions fish died in Hjälmaren due to, among other things, elevated nitrite levels in the lake. A contributing factor turned out to be the high nitrite content that leaves the wastewater treatment plant Skebäck, located in Örebro. The wastewater is purified from nitrogen through nitrification and denitrification where nitrite occurs as an intermediate in several reaction steps. The report contains theory round the formation of nitrite and the results from samplings where nitrite concentration was determined. The objective was to increase nitrite conversion and thereby decrease the content of nitrite in the effluent water, by studying the increase of nitrite. Samplings started in March and no changes in the process where made, the first samples were analyzed to determine where the nitrite accumulation occurred. The samplings were taken in the intermittently aerated basin, wish includes a aerated period and a nonaerated period. The initial samples showed that nitrite accumulates ...

PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - Nitrite salts are regularly used as fertilizers and food preservatives. Excessive levels have raised awareness from public regulation agencies, since nitrite can have an adverse impact on public health and on ecological systems. Therefore, it is important to develop sensitive assays to monitor this ion in foodstuff products and waters. This work presents a nitrite biosensor based on a highly selective nitrite reducing enzyme incorporated on carbon ink based screen-printed electrodes. The resulting device enabled the quantification of nitrite in different samples (milk, water) in a straightforward way and with small error (1-6%). The sensitivity of the biosensor towards nitrite reduction under optimized conditions was 0.55 A M-1 cm-2 with a linear response in the range ...
Sodium hyponitrite is a solid ionic compound with formula Na 2N 2O 2 or (Na+ )2[ON=NO]2−. There are cis and trans forms of the hyponitrite ion N 2O2− 2. The trans form is more common, but the cis form can be obtained too, and it is more reactive than the trans form. The trans isomer is colorless and soluble in water and insoluble in ethanol and ether. Sodium hyponitrite (trans) is conventionally prepared by reduction of sodium nitrite with sodium amalgam. 2 NaNO2 + 4 Na(Hg) + 2 H2O → Na2N2O2 + 4 NaOH + 4 Hg Sodium hyponitrite (trans) was prepared in 1927 by A. W. Scott by reacting alkyl nitrites, hydroxylammonium chloride, and sodium ethoxide RONO + NH2OH + 2 EtONa → Na2N2O2 + ROH + 2 EtOH An earlier method, published by D. Mendenhall in 1974, reacted gaseous nitric oxide (NO) with sodium metal in 1,2-dimethoxyethane, toluene, and benzophenone. The salt was then extracted with water. The method was later modified to use pyridine[citation needed]. Other methods included oxidation of a ...

A highly selective needle type solid state amperometric nitrite microsensor based on direct nitrite oxidation on carbon fiber was developed using a simplified fabrication method. The microsensors tip diameter was approximately 7 mu m (14 mu m spatial resolution). At an applied potential of +1.2 V vs. Ag/AgCl, the microsensor exhibited a linear nitrite response from 0 to 25 mg N L-1, a 0.02 mg N L-1(1.3 mu M) limit of detection, and a fast response ( | 5 s). There was minimal interference with less than 3% of electrode response changes from major chemicals of interest in drinking water and wastewater systems [oxygen, ammonium, monochloramine, nitrate, sodium bicarbonate (alkalinity), chloride, sulfate, and acetate]. Hydrogen ion (pH) affected nitrite measurement by shifting the baseline response, translating into an approximate change of 0.24 mg N L-1 nitrite per 1 pH unit change. Depending on the conditions (e. g., pH, alkalinity, nitrite concentration), pH may need to be taken into account during
Beetroot juice ingestion lowered BP in healthy volunteers. There was a lag period of approximately 1 to 2 hours, after ingestion, with a peak drop in BP occurring after 3 to 4 hours. This time course of reduction in BP correlated with the appearance and peak levels of nitrite in the circulation; an effect that was absent in individuals within whom the enterosalivary circuit was disrupted by avoidance of swallowing. These observations, together with the fact that plasma nitrite, and not nitrate, concentration correlated with the decreases in BP implicates nitrite as the likely functional mediator of the beetroot juice-induced effects on BP.. Exactly how nitrite mediates this decrease in BP is uncertain, however recent evidence demonstrates that nitrite is a potent vasodilator in the human forearm,25 and it is likely that such vasodilator activity underlies the BP effects evidenced here. This activity of nitrite has been attributed to its chemical reduction to the potent vasodilator NO. Until ...
Nitrites are abused mainly by older adolescents and adults. Typically, individuals who abuse nitrites are seeking to enhance sexual function and pleasure. Research shows that abuse of these drugs in this context is associated with unsafe sexual practices that greatly increase the risk of contracting and spreading infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.. Animal research raises the possibility that there may also be a link between abuse of nitrites and the development and progression of infectious diseases and tumors. The research indicates that inhaling nitrites depletes many cells in the immune system and impairs mechanisms that fight infectious diseases. A study found that even a relatively small number of exposures to butyl nitrite can produce dramatic increases in tumor incidence and growth rate in animals.. ...
Nitrite poisoning is also known by aquarists as Brown Blood Disease. Nitrite damages the nervous system, liver, spleen, and kidneys of fish and other aquatic animals. Even low concentrations of 0.5mg/l over extended periods can cause long term damage. Nitrite binds the oxygen carrying hemoglobin in blood therefore fish can suffocate even if the oxygen in the tank is sufficient. Given time (normally 3-4 weeks) in a normal process of a new tank cycling, nitrites are converted into the much less toxic nitrates by the nitrifying bacteria. However if the levels of nitrites do not come down, then the nitrites will cause the animals to struggle for oxygen as the nitrites damage the gills of fish and will cause long term damage to their immune systems and stress them greatly. ...

en] PURPOSE: The biological status of nitrite recently evolved from an inactive end product of nitric oxide catabolism to the largest intravascular and tissue storage of nitric oxide (NO). Although low partial O(2) pressure favors enzymatic reconversion of nitrite into NO, low pH supports a nonenzymatic pathway. Because hypoxia and acidity are characteristics of the tumor microenvironment, we examined whether nitrite injection could preferentially lead to NO production in tumors and influence response to treatments. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: The effects of nitrite were evaluated on arteriole vasorelaxation, tumor cell respiration and tumor blood flow, oxygenation, and response to radiotherapy. RESULTS: We first showed that a small drop in pH (-0.6 pH unit) favored the production of bioactive NO from nitrite by documenting a higher cyclic guanosine 3,5-monophosphate-dependent arteriole vasorelaxation. We then documented that an i.v. bolus injection of nitrite to tumor-bearing mice led to a transient ...
Nitrite represents a circulating and tissue storage form of NO whose bioactivation is mediated by the enzymatic action of xanthine oxidoreductase, nonenzymatic disproportionation, and reduction by deoxyhemoglobin, myoglobin, and tissue heme proteins. Because the rate of NO generation from nitrite is linearly dependent on reductions in oxygen and pH levels, we hypothesized that nitrite would be reduced to NO in ischemic tissue and exert NO-dependent protective effects. Solutions of sodium nitrite were administered in the setting of hepatic and cardiac ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice. In hepatic I/R, nitrite exerted profound dose-dependent protective effects on cellular necrosis and apoptosis, with highly significant protective effects observed at near-physiological nitrite concentrations. In myocardial I/R injury, nitrite reduced cardiac infarct size by 67%. Consistent with hypoxia-dependent nitrite bioactivation, nitrite was reduced to NO, S-nitrosothiols, N-nitros-amines, and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Nitrosyl-heme complexes are formed in the ischemic heart. T2 - Evidence of nitrite-derived nitric oxide formation, storage, and signaling in post-ischemic tissues. AU - Tiravanti, Edy. AU - Samouilov, Alexandre. AU - Zweier, Jay L.. PY - 2004/3/19. Y1 - 2004/3/19. N2 - In addition to the generation from specific nitric-oxide (NO) synthases, NO formation from nitrite occurs in ischemic tissues, such as the heart. Although NO binding to heme-centers is the basis for NO-mediated signaling as occurs through guanylate cyclase, it is not known if this process is triggered with physiologically relevant periods of sublethal ischemia and if nitrite serves as a critical substrate. Therefore electron paramagnetic resonance studies were performed to measure nitrosyl-heme formation during the time course of myocardial ischemia and reperfusion and the role of nitrite in this process. Rat hearts were either partially nitrite-depleted by nitrite-free buffer perfusion or nitrite-enriched by ...

AU - Fujita, Etsuko. AU - Chang, C. K.. AU - Fajer, Jack. PY - 1985. Y1 - 1985. N2 - Oxidation of cobalt(II) nitrosyl complexes of porphyrins (P), chlorins (C), and isobacteriochlorins (iBC) yields CoIINO π-cation radicals. The radicals are stable and recyclable to the parent compound without loss of NO. The oxidized species have been characterized by electrochemistry, visible and infrared spectroscopy, and electron spin resonance (ESR). Interest in these intermediates is prompted by the presence of iron Cs or iBCs in enzymes that catalyze the reductions of nitrite to ammonia or nitric oxide (nitrite reductases) and the recent identification of cobalt iBC in sulfite reductases, enzymes which are also capable of nitrite reduction. The optical spectra of the CoIINO radicals resemble those previously obtained on ...

A sequence of equations is proposed for the decomposition events of alkyl nitrates, based on the observation that nitrites are produced in substantial amounts. Studies were made of the reactions of ethoxyl radicals (produced by the decomposition of diethyl peroxide at 181 deg C) with ethyl nitrite and NO. The reaction rate between the ethoxyl radicals and NO was much greater than that between the radicals the nitrite.

The content of nitrite admixture in preparations of dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNIC) with glutathione synthesized by treatment of aqueous solutions of Fe2+ + glutathione with gaseous NO (complex 1) or by mixing solutions of S-nitrosoglutathione (GS-NO) with solutions of Fe2+ + glutathione (complex 2) was determined using the Griess method and HPLC as well as from the level of HNO2 formed upon interaction of gaseous NO with acidified distilled water. In both preparations, DNIC were predominantly represented by the binuclear form (B-DNIC). In complex 1, the appearance of nitrite in DNIC solutions was induced by nitrogen dioxide present in gaseous NO; its interaction with NO gives an adduct, which is further hydrolyzed to nitrite in aqueous solutions. In complex 2, the presence of nitrite admixture could appear in the presence of nitrite non-incorporated into GS-NO synthesized by mixing glutathione and nitrite in acid media. The per cent content of nitrite (with respect to the total content of ...

from Sara Tung, the co-chapter leader of Weston A. Price Foundation in Reston, VA:. Nitrites occur naturally in fermented foods. Nitrites have been found to help preserve foods, which is why the food industry started adding nitrites to foods. High quantities of nitrites do cause cancer, although I dont believe a study has been done that compares naturally occurring nitrites found in foods as a result of fermentation vs artificial nitrites added to processed foods. I would bet that the studies are done based on the nitrites used as an additive in processed foods.. Just like MSG is naturally occurring in certain foods like bone broth and cooking mushrooms, people dont usually have health issues or reactions to the nitrites naturally occurring found in fermented foods. (Many people react to added MSG or chemical MSG but have no trouble with foods that naturally produce MSG during the cooking process.) This is the same debate of vitamin A & D toxicity - all the conventional studies show that A & D ...
article{2108831, abstract = {In the gut ecosystem, nitric oxide (NO) has been described to have damaging effects on the energy metabolism of colonocytes. Described mechanisms of NO production are microbial reduction of nitrate via nitrite to NO and conversion of l-arginine by NO synthase. The aim of this study was to investigate whether dietary compounds can stimulate the production of NO by representative cultures of the human intestinal microbiota and whether this correlates to other processes in the intestinal tract. We have found that the addition of a reduced sulfur compound, i.e. cysteine, contributed to NO formation. This increase was ascribed to higher sulfide concentrations generated from cysteine that in turn promoted the chemical conversion of nitrite to NO. The NO release from nitrite was of the order of 4 parts per thousand at most. Overall, it was shown that two independent biological processes contribute to the chemical formation of NO in the intestinal tract: (i) the production ...

Beneficial bacteria grow on any surface in the aquarium and they are concentrated in the filter sponge/media which has a high surface area. By constantly flowing water through the filter, ammonia and nitrite are rapidly converted to nitrates, assisting in keeping tank water free of toxic levels of these compounds. You should avoid completely cleaning a tank as this will remove the beneficial bacteria. Instead, partial water changes of approximately 10% should be performed once per week, using a gravel vacuum to remove waste and uneaten food from the substrate. At this time the sides of the tank can be wiped with an aquarium safe sponge and filter media and/or decorations can be cleaned in old tank water.. Regularly test your water for ammonia, nitrite & nitrate levels to ensure your biological filtration is sufficient, you are maintaining it appropriately and your aquarium is not overstocked or overfed.. Your filter is ultimately only as effective as the media it contains. There are many types ...

Well-defined palladium-gold nanoparticles (PdAuNPs) with randomly alloyed structures and broadly tunable compositions were studied in catalytic nitrite (NO2-) reduction. The catalysts were synthesized using a microwave-assisted polyol coreduction method. PdxAu100-xNPs with systematically varied compositions (x = 18-83) were supported on amorphous silica (SiO2) and studied as model catalysts for aqueous NO2- reduction in a batch reactor, using H2 as the electron donor. The reactions followed pseudo-first-order kinetics for ≥80% NO2- conversion. The PdxAu100-xNP-SiO2 catalysts showed a volcano-like correlation between NO2- reduction activity and x; the highest activity was observed for Pd53Au47, with an associated first-order rate constant of 5.12 L min-1 gmetal-1. Alloy NPs with greater proportions of Au were found to reduce the loss in catalytic activity due to sulfide fouling. Density functional theory calculations indicate that this is because Au weakens sulfur binding at PdAuNP surfaces due ...

To eliminate these substances different processes of filtration or water treatment have been used. It is known that activated carbon filters are not able to remove these components.. They get eliminated through a reverse osmosis system, although it should be noted that this procedure, in addition to eliminating all harmful products of water, also removes minerals that are beneficial to health, such as magnesium or calcium.. In order to diminish the nitrates of plants that especially accumulate them, a series of precautions should be taken into account when we prepare or eat these vegetables:. - The best way is cooking them in water, so that it dissolves the nitrate content. Before cooking we should let them soak for a while for the same purpose.. - Cooking water should be discarded and drained much as possible.. - Cook as quickly as possible to prevent bacteria from acting against them by converting nitrate to nitrite and nitrosamines, which are the most harmful substances.. - No consumption ...

Alkyl nitrites are a group of chemical compounds based upon the molecular structure R-ONO. Formally they are alkyl esters of nitrous acid. They are distinct from nitro compounds (R-NO2). The first few members of the series are volatile liquids; methyl nitrite and ethyl nitrite are gaseous at room temperature and pressure. The compounds have a distinctive fruity odor. Another frequently encountered nitrite is amyl nitrite (3-methylbutyl nitrite). Alkyl nitrites were initially, and largely still are used as medications and chemical reagents, a practice which began in the late 19th century. In their use as medicine, are often inhaled for relief of angina and other heart-related symptoms of disease. However, when referred to as poppers, alkyl nitrites represent recreational drugs. ...
The denitrifying bacterium Paracoccus denitrificans can grow aerobically or anaerobically using nitrate or nitrite as the sole nitrogen source. The biochemical pathway responsible is expressed from a gene cluster comprising a nitrate/nitrite transporter (NasA), nitrite transporter (NasH), nitrite reductase (NasB), ferredoxin (NasG) and nitrate reductase (NasC). NasB and NasG are essential for growth with nitrate or nitrite as the nitrogen source. NADH serves as the electron donor for nitrate and nitrite reduction, but only NasB has a NADH-oxidizing domain. Nitrate and nitrite reductase activities show the same Km for NADH and can be separated by anion-exchange chromatography, but only fractions containing NasB retain the ability to oxidize NADH. This implies that NasG mediates electron flux from the NADH-oxidizing site in NasB to the sites of nitrate and nitrite reduction in NasC and NasB respectively. Delivery of extracellular nitrate to NasBGC is mediated by NasA, but both NasA and NasH ...

We evaluated plasma levels of NO metabolite in patients with schizophrenia. Method: Plasma levels of NO metabolites, nitrite and nitrate, were measured in 45 male schizophrenics and 45 male normal controls. The severity of schizophrenia and response to treatment were assessed with the positive and negative syndrome scale. Plasma NO metabolite levels were estimated by Griess method in plasma samples. Results: Plasma levels of the NO metabolites were significantly lower in schizophrenics than in normal controls (t = 2.841, df= 88, p = 0.006). There were no significant correlations between plasma NO metabolites and PANSS scores in ...
Sodium nitrite is used to fix the colors in preserved fish and meats. It is also important (along with sodium chloride) in controlling the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which causes botulism. Lunch meats, hams, sausages, hot dogs and bacon are usually preserved this way. In medicines, it is a vasodilator, intestinal relaxant, bronchodilator, and an antidote to cyanide poisoning, and hydrogen sulfide poisoning. Sodium nitrite is produced in the human body by the action of saliva on sodium nitrate, and is important in controlling bacteria in the stomach, to prevent gastroenteritis. The body produces more sodium nitrite than is consumed in food. Sodium nitrite can react with proteins in the stomach or during cooking (especially in high heat, such as frying bacon) to form carcinogenic N-nitrosamines. To prevent this, ascorbic acid or erythorbic acid are now added to the cured meat. During the curing process, some of the nitrites are converted to nitric oxide. This combines with the myoglobin ...
Generally, the levels of sodium nitrite in processed meat and fish products are low and deemed safe to ingest by FDA regulations (.0001% in cured fish and .0005-percent in cured meats). However, the major health concern with sodium nitrite lies in the reaction is sustains when exposed to high heats and other reactive agents…such as stomach acid. Sodium nitrite in cured meats can form carcinogenic (cancer-causing) nitrosamines when exposed to high temperatures, and when combined with the naturally occurring acids in the stomach. Sodium nitrite has also been linked to triggering migraines in people who already suffer from them.. The slightly reassuring news here is that more recent FDA regulations have required manufacturers to include specific levels of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in products containing sodium nitrite. Ascorbic acid, an antioxidant, inhibits the formation of nitrosamines. For the past 20 years, the cured meat manufacturing industry has cut back on the use of sodium nitrite and ...
We examined the effects of nitrite repletion on mitochondrial function, reperfusion ROS generation, organ function, and survival in a 12-minute mouse cardiac arrest model. Cardiac arrest results in systemic nitrite depletion, and low-dose nitrite replacement (therapy with 50 nmol) at CPR initiation restores these levels to near baseline and increases cardiac S-nitrosothiols. Therapeutic nitrite repletion and S-nitrosation in heart are associated with transient, reversible inhibition of complex I, reducing mitochondrial reperfusion, ROS generation, and oxidative injury. Nitrite improved pulmonary gas exchange, cardiac contractility, and survival with a suggestion of neuroprotection.. Moderate NO reperfusion therapy is known to be protective,29 but NO formation is limited by the dependence of NO synthase on oxygen and reduced substrates.30 Nitrite acts as a reservoir for NO during ischemia, and nitrite reduction generates NO through NOS-independent pathways.6,31,32 We demonstrate that global ...

Nitrates are compounds found in a variety of foods and are even produced by our own bodies. Most dietary nitrates are derived from vegetables, which soak up nitrogen from the soil and convert it to nitrates in vegetables. Since the complexities of dietary nitrates and their impact on performance can be confusing, were breaking down the science of dietary nitrates so that you can understand a little more about the benefits of eating more vegetables:. 1. Nitrates are activated in your mouth.. As the gateway for all food and beverages entering the body, your mouth is pretty important-especially for nitrates. In fact, your mouth contains oral bacteria with enzymes highly effective at breaking down nitrate in saliva into the more bioactive nitrite, which is then circulated through the bloodstream (1). Nitrite is also converted to nitric oxide, which is a potent vasodilator, signaling the smooth muscles of the inner lining of blood vessels to relax-thus improving blood flow. Research still continues ...
To explain anaerobic nitrite/nitrate production at the expense of ammonium mediated by manganese oxide (Mn(IV)) in sediment, nitrate and manganese respirations were investigated in a strain (Shewanella algae C6G3) presenting these features. In contrast to S. oneidensis MR-1, a biotic transitory nitrite accumulation at the expense of ammonium was observed in S. algae during anaerobic growth with Mn(IV) under condition of limiting electron acceptor, concomitantly, with a higher electron donor stoichiometry than expected. This low and reproducible transitory accumulation is the result of production and consumption since the strain is able to dissimilative reduce nitrate into ammonium. Nitrite production in Mn(IV) condition is strengthened by comparative expression of the nitrate/nitrite reductase genes (napA, nrfA, nrfA-2), and rates of the nitrate/nitrite reductase activities under Mn(IV), nitrate or fumarate conditions. Compared with S. oneidensis MR-1, S. algae contains additional genes that encode
The cytochrome cd1 nitrite reductases are enzymes that catalyse the reduction of nitrite to nitric oxide (NO) in the bacterial energy conversion denitrification process. These enzymes contain two different redox centres: one covalently bound c-haem, which is reduced by external donors, and one peculiar d1-haem, where catalysis occurs. In the present paper, we summarize the current understanding of the reaction of nitrite reduction in the light of the most recent results on the enzyme from Pseudomonas aeruginosa and discuss the differences between enzymes from different organisms. We have evidence that release of NO from the ferrous d1-haem occurs rapidly enough to be fully compatible with the turnover, in contrast with previous hypotheses, and that the substrate nitrite is able to displace NO from the d1-haem iron. These results shed light on the mechanistic details of the activity of cd1 nitrite reductases and on the biological role of the d1-haem, whose presence in this class of enzymes has to ...
The 1998 Nobel Prize went to three American scientists for discovering the tie between nitric oxide (NO) and cardiovascular health. The following studies confirm the need to boost NO production in your body. Age-associated changes in nitric oxide metabolites nitrite and nitrate Int J Clin Lab Res. 2000. 30:83-85.M. Toprakçı, D. Özmen, I. Mutaf, N. Turgan, Z. Parıldar, S. Habif, İ. Güner and O. Bayındır Nitric oxide is essential in staving off cardiovascular risk factors such as aging, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to determine whether increased age resulted in decreased serum nitrite and nitrate levels-the end-products of nitric oxide-in healthy subjects. Healthy individuals were divided into five age groups and their serum nitrite and nitrate levels were measured. Analysis showed that nitrite levels were not significantly different, but nitrate concentrations exhibited significant differences. This suggests that nitric oxide synthesis is reduced with age,

TY - JOUR. T1 - Nitrate and nitrite reductions with anaerobic sludge using various carbon sources. T2 - glucose, glycerol, acetic acid, lactic acid and methanol. AU - Akunna, Joseph C.. AU - Bizeau, C.. AU - Moletta, R.. PY - 1993/8. Y1 - 1993/8. N2 - Batch-tests were used to determine the potentials of digested sludge to reduce nitrate and nitrite in the presence of five different carbon sources: glucose, glycerol, acetic acid, lactic acid and methanol. Ammonium accumulation was found in glucose and glycerol media. Dissimilatory reduction to ammonium accounted for up to 50% of reduced nitrate and nitrite. The rest were denitrified. In the media containing these carbon substrates volatile fatty acids, particularly acetic acid, were produced and ammonification was higher than denitrification activities only when glucose and glycerol were still present in the media. Ammonium production was higher in nitrite cultures than in nitrate cultures. In the culture media with acetic and lactic acids and ...
This thesis evaluates the performance of a deammonification system designed as a two-step tech-nology consisting of an initial partial nitritation followed by an Anammox process. Operation of a technical-scale pilot plant at the Himmerfjärden Wastewater Treatment Plant (Grödinge, Swe-den) has been assessed. Oxygen Uptake Rate (OUR) to evaluate the respiration activity of nitrifi-ers in the system and batch tests to assess reaction rates have also been applied in the study. It was found that the total inorganic nitrogen elimination strongly depended on the nitrite-to-ammonium ratio in the influent to the Anammox reactor, which was correlated with the per-formance of the partial nitritation phase. Therefore, a control strategy for oxidation of ammo-nium to nitrite has been proposed. Controlled oxygen supply to the partial nitritation reactor is obligatory to obtain a proper pH drop indicating oxidation of ammonia to nitrite at the adequate ratio. A very high nitrogen removal efficiency (an ...

Nitric oxide production, nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and mitochondrial nitrite-reducing activities in roots, leaves and stems of different developmental stages were investigated, using potted 3-year-old apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) trees. The arginine-dependent NOS activity is sensitive to NOS inhibitor L-NAME and aminoguanidine (AG), with L-NAME being more effective than AG. Endogenous NO production, NOS and mitochondrial nitrite-reducing activities are predominately presented in young leaves and especially in young white roots and young stems. Root and stem mitochondria can reduce nitrite to nitric oxide at the expense of NADH, however, this mitochondrial nitrite-reducing activity is absent in leaves ...
The role of RNI during experimental salmonellosis in murine hosts has recently been demonstrated (21, 22). To elucidate the role of RNI in the cellular microbiology of Salmonella, we first investigated how a cultured macrophage-like cell line reacts to infection with S. typhimurium. RAW267.4 macrophages were infected with S. typhimurium wild-type and the NO response as measured by nitrite accumulation was studied. An increase in the MOI resulted in a gradual increase of the nitrite production by the RAW267.4 cells at early time after infection (Fig. 1 A). 8 h after infection, no significant difference in nitrite production was observed after infection at various MOI in the range of 10 to 150. In contrast, macrophages infected with heat-killed bacteria did not exhibit significant nitrite accumulation after 8 h (Fig. 1 B). After 24 h, accumulation of nitrite was detectable but lower than that observed with live Salmonella. This residual nitrite accumulation may be due to LPS, which is a prime ...
Poppers is a slang term for products that contain alkyl nitrites. Despite being labelled for various uses such as leather cleaners, room odourizers or liquid incense, these products are inhaled or ingested by consumers for recreational purposes. Alkyl nitrites, such as amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite, are prescription drugs and should be used only under the supervision of a health care professional. Products containing alkyl nitrites may pose serious risks, including death, depending on the amount used, how frequently they are used and how long they are used for, as well as the persons health and the other medications they may be taking. Since it is difficult to control how much is inhaled, people can accidentally overdose. Swallowing these products can lead to serious medical complications and may be fatal. People with certain medical conditions (including recent head trauma, bleeding into the head, glaucoma, or heart disease) and those taking certain medications ...
We examined whether p.o. biological activities of (+/-)-(E)-4-ethyl-2-[(E)-hydroxyimino]-5-nitro-3-hexenamide (FK409), a spontaneous nitric oxide (NO) releaser, and the derivatives, i.e., (+/-)-[(E)-4-ethyl-3-[(Z)-hydroxyimino]-5-nitro-3-hexenyl]-3 - pyridinecarboxamide (FR144420) and (+/-)-N-[(E)-4-ethyl-3-[(Z)-hydroxyimino]-6-methyl-5- nitro-3-heptenyl]-3-pyridinecarboxamide (FR146801), could be accounted for by their NO-releasing rates and p.o. absorption manners. These compounds spontaneously released NO with the rates in the rank order of FK409 , FR144420 , FR146801. Total contribution of these drugs as NO donors in vivo was almost the same from the determination of urinary nitrite/nitrate (NOx) levels after p.o. administration of the compounds at 10 mg/kg to rats. Plasma NOx level after p.o. administration of FK409 at 10 mg/kg to rats reached maximal level at 120 min, and decreased gradually. On the other hand, plasma NOx levels time-dependently increased during 360 min after p.o. ...
This study will determine the dose of sodium nitrite that can safely be used to prevent constriction, or tightening, of the arteries. Narrowed arteries in the brain can cause stroke. Animal studies show that nitrite injections improve blood flow and that injections over long periods of time prevent damage to the arteries in the brain; however, there is no information on the effects of prolonged nitrite infusion in humans. This study will establish the safe dose and side effects of nitrite infusion in humans.. Healthy normal volunteers between 21 and 60 years of age may be eligible for this study. Candidates are screened for high or low blood pressure, aspirin use, pregnancy, and blood levels of nitrite and methemoglobin (a substance that temporarily and slightly lowers the oxygen carried in the red blood cells). Pregnant women are excluded from the study.. Participants are admitted to the Clinical Center for 16 1/4 days, the first 2 days in the hospitals intensive care unit (ICU). Upon ...

Growing up, I loved eating cold hot dogs out of the fridge. It was a great snack. Sodium Nitrites are found in most processed meats. Picture yourself at the grocery store buying hot dogs. Now look at all the lunch meats and sausages all around the hot dogs . . . all of it has Sodium Nitrate. Sodium Nitrite is what is formed when you ingest sodium nitrates. Sodium Nitrite is a known carcinogen (causes cancer). You have to eat vitamin C to negate the nitrites. So you would have to have a slice of tomato on your sandwich. Sodium nitrite is what is formed as the sodium nitrite is oxidized (exposed to oxygen). Keep in mind as I talk about meats that I am referring to processed meat. NOT chicken, steak, pork chops, and those fresh meats. Examples of meats that have nitrites in them ARE bacon, lunch meat, sausage, hot dogs, and jerky ...

Authors: Badawi, Alaa F. , Hosny, Gehan , El-Hadary, Mohamed , Mostafa, Mostafa H. Article Type: Research Article Abstract: It has been suggested that nitrate and nitrite may play a role in the etiology of human oral cancer. We investigated whether salivary nitrate and nitrite and the activity of nitrate reductase (NRase) may affect the risk of oral cancer in Egypt, an area with high levels of environmental nitrosating agents. Levels of salivary nitrite (8.3 ± 1.0 µg/ml) and nitrate (44 ± 3.7 µg/ml) and activity of NRase (74 ± 10 nmol/ml/min) were significantly (P , 0.05) higher in …oral cancer patients (n = 42) compared to control Egyptian healthy individuals (n = 40, nitrite = 5.3 ± 0.3 µg/ml, nitrate = 27 ± 1.2 µg/ml, and NRase activity = 46 ± 4 nmol/ml/min). The adjusted odds ratio (OR) and the 95% confidence intervals (C.I.) for risk of oral cancer, categorized by the levels of salivary nitrate and nitrite and NRase activity, showed a higher cancer risk associated with nitrite , ...

We investigated the effect of the calcium channel antagonist nifedipine on the induction of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) by bacterial endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide; LPS) in J774.2 macrophages, in cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells and in a rat model of endotoxin shock. Stimulation by LPS for 24 hr increased nitrite accumulation in the supernatant of both cell types. NOS induction accounts for this nitrite accumulation, as both NG-methyl-L-arginine and cycloheximide reduced nitrite production in both cell types. Dexamethasone inhibited LPS-stimulated nitrite production in macrophages, but not in rat aortic smooth muscle cells. Nifedipine inhibited the production of nitrite in these LPS-treated cell types, with a more pronounced effect on macrophages. However, nifedipine did not inhibit the production of nitrite in J774.2 cells in which NOS had already been induced by prior exposure to LPS, and any possible further induction was inhibited by cycloheximide. In anesthetized rats subjected to ...
Nitric Oxide, or NO is an incredibly simple molecule, a nitrogen and an oxygen that are stuck together with 2 bonds. NO is very important for many things, most importantly it lowers blood pressure. Healthy human skin tissue contains significant quantities of nitrite. Stores of nitrites can be turned into nitric oxide. Every cell type in human skin is able to produce nitric oxide by several mechanisms. Dietary nitrate represents an important source of cutaneous nitric oxide. Green leafy vegetables, beetroots, lettuce have a lot of these nitrites. Also carnivorous sources of arginine result in stores of nitric oxide; turkey, pork and chicken are good sources. Supplements such as arginine and citrulline may also be sources of dietary nitrate.. Nature has a reason for everything it does. Sunlight exposure increases skin production of nitric oxide, which can dilate the 60,000 miles of blood vessels we have in our body, and improve blood flow. Ultraviolet light from the sun, specifically UVA, is what ...

Poppers are a street name for a group of chemicals better known as alkyl nitrites. They originally came into medicine in the form of amyl nitrite, which was discovered to have a potent capability to expand blood vessels. This feature found use in the treatment of angina pectoris, a particular kind of chest pain resulting from narrowing of the blood vessels of the heart.. Amyl nitrite remained a medicine, and in fact in many places available freely over the counter. In 1969, the US Food and Drug Administration made it prescription only[1] when the increased use of it in raves and gay sex aroused the attention of the government. However, other variants of the chemical group, including isobutyl nitrite, isopropyl nitrite, pentyl nitrite, and cyclohexyl nitrite, have a mixed legal status in different countries.. In the European Union, isobutyl nitrite remained most popular until it was banned in 2007[2] based on the European Chemicals Agency classifying it as a potential cancer-causing chemical. ...
Nitrites - gram negative bacteria (such as E. coli) breakdown nitrates, a normal waste product in urine, into nitrites. The presence of nitrites suggest bacteria presence.. Leukocytes - this means white blood cells. There are normally a small number of leukocytes in the urine but a significant rise can be the result of an infection or other cause of inflammation. Urine dipsticks test for leukocyte esterase, a product of leukocytes that gives an indication to the number of leukocytes in the urine.. Nitrites are a better indication of infection than leukocytes. If both are present then the patient should be treated as a UTI. If only nitrites are present then it is worth treating as a UTI however if only leukocytes are present then the patient should not be treated as a UTI unless there is clinical evidence that they have a UTI.. If nitrites or leukocytes are present the urine should be sent to the microbiology lab. If neither are present the patient is unlikely to have a UTI.. Send a midstream ...
NO production from the airways has been implicated as a possible marker of airways inflammation. Indeed, exhaled NO has even been put forward as a new lung function test.18 However, in reality many questions remain unanswered with regard to exhaled NO. There is no clear information as to the major cellular source of NO detected in the exhaled breath-does it originate principally from the inflamed epithelium or from inflammatory cells? The anatomical source of exhaled NO also remains unclear-it could arise from the central or peripheral airways or alveoli and there is no evidence of the relative contribution of each of these sites. Further, it is uncertain what proportion of total NO production is reflected by exhaled gaseous NO since a large proportion could theoretically have reacted close to its site of production. We have demonstrated that, compared with normal subjects, nitrite levels in breath condensate are higher in patients with cystic fibrosis but this was not the case with exhaled NO. ...
With great interest, we read the carefully performed study by Borlaug et al. (1) on the beneficial effect of sodium nitrite on invasive exercise hemodynamics in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. We appreciate their findings and suggest a complementary explanation: Although organic nitrates and anorganic nitrites probably have different molecular mechanisms of action, both share a common pathway involving cyclic guanosine monophosphate and, importantly, may have similar hemodynamic actions including reduction of central systolic blood pressure and reduction of arterial wave reflections. Indeed, nitroglycerine has been shown to reduce wave reflections even before the conventional blood pressure measurement had been invented (2), and has been shown to do so without any effect on brachial blood pressure (2). In the recent study by Borlaug et al. (1), central pressures and wave reflections unfortunately were not measured. On the other hand, these esteemed colleagues (3), ...
This protein activates the expression of the nitrate reductase (narGHJI) and formate dehydrogenase-N (fdnGHI) operons and represses the transcription of the fumarate reductase (frdABCD) operon in response to a nitrate/nitrite induction signal transmitted by either the NarX or NarQ proteins.
Common problems in new tanks and ponds. A very common problem, particularly for those new to fish keeping, is ammonia or nitrite poisoning. Unfortunately in many cases by the time it becomes apparent that a problem exists the fish are often dying or seriously ill.. Ammonia and nitrification. Central to the principle of filtration and fish keeping is the fact that fish are continually polluting the water they live in. These pollutants can very quickly build up to dangerous levels. A major pollutant is ammonia - which fish are continually excreting from their gills. Fortunately there are naturally occurring bacteria that feed on ammonia and convert it to less toxic nitrite. There are other naturally occurring bacteria that feed on the nitrite and convert it to harmless nitrate. So in a mature environment the ammonia rarely builds up to a dangerous level as it is quickly converted to harmless nitrate in this biological two-stage process called nitrification.. So far so good, the problem is that ...
Biological ammonium oxidation was carried out in an inverse turbulent bed reactor fed with a synthetic mineral wastewater containing a high ammonium concentration (250 or 500 mg N-NH4 +/L). The effects of dissolved oxygen concentration in the reactor, of ammonium concentration in the feeding and of ammonium loading rate on nitrite accumulation was studied in order to optimize ammonium conversion. A model of the biofilm was proposed to describe the experiments and to predict the effects of some operating parameters on nitrite accumulation. The model could also describe oxygen concentration gradients in the biofilm in steady-state conditions. It was shown that the O2/N-NH4 + ratio in the bulk phase is the main parameter controlling nitrite accumulation. This parameter was thus chosen to control the process using on-line dissolved oxygen and ammonium concentration measurements to act on the air flow-rate. Using O2/N-NH4 + ratio set-points of 0.05 and 0.1, it was possible to oxidize up to 80% of the ...

The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy says there is an insignificant hazard associated with inhalation of alkyl nitrites, and British governmental guidance on the relative harmfulness of alkyl nitrites places them among the less harmful of recreational drugs.. Swallowing poppers (rather than inhaling the vapor) may cause cyanosis, unconsciousness, coma, and complications leading to death. Isopropyl nitrite poppers may damage your eyes. Some studies have concluded that there may be an increased risk for at least temporary retinal damage with habitual popper use in certain users; in a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine, an ophthalmologist described four cases in which recreational users of poppers suffered temporary changes in vision. More permanent damage has been reported in habitual popper users.. In June 2014, eye doctors reported having noticed an increase in vision loss in chronic popper users in the United Kingdom associated with isopropyl nitrite (substitute for isobutyl ...
