N2 - We measured the contribution of mitochondrial nitric oxide synthase (mtNOS) and respiratory chain enzymes to reactive nitrogen species (RNS) production. Diaminofluorescein (DAF) was applied for the assessment of RNS production in isolated mouse brain, heart and liver mitochondria and also in a cultured neuroblastoma cell line by confocal microscopy and flow cytometry. Mitochondria produced RNS, which was inhibited by catalysts of peroxynitrite decomposition but not by nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitors. Disrupting the organelles or withdrawing respiratory substrates markedly reduced RNS production. Inhibition of complex I abolished the DAF signal, which ...

Compounds and their stable or reactive metabolites can increase the production of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) in hepatocytes via proposed mechanisms such as the reduction in cellular antioxidants or direct parent compound-mediated or reactive metabolite-mediated interactions. Modest increases in ROS/RNS can trigger activation of caspase enzymes, leading to caspase-mediated hepatocellular apoptosis. Greater increases in ROS/RNS can induce reductions in hepatocellular ATP, in turn disrupting other cellular processes (e.g. mitochondrial electron transport chain activity, bile acid transport) that can ultimately result in necrosis.. The balance of ROS/RNS within DILIsym is determined by the relative contributions of production and clearance. It has been demonstrated that compounds can either directly or via reactive metabolites elicit increases in the hepatocellular production of ROS and RNS, shifting the balance towards accumulation. One such example is acetaminophen, which perturbs ...
Severe trauma, caused by flame burn and smoke (B + S) inhalation induces acute lung injury (ALI) and results in the loss of pulmonary function. A cascade of molecular and cellular events initiates the formation of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) that in turn drives an inflammatory response and consequently cell death through hyper-activation of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP-1). The purpose of this study was to investigate and counteract pulmonary dysfunction associated with nitrosative stress generated after B + S inhalation injury in an ovine and murine model of ALI. \r\nIn our time course experiment, sheep were sacrificed at 4, 8, 12, 18 and 24 hours post B + S injury. From 4 through 24 hours, there was a progressive increase in airway obstruction and lung edema formation. Furthermore, injury was associated with increased ROS/RNS generation, pro-inflammatory cytokine expression and neutrophil accumulation. Additionally, PARP-1 enzymatic activity increased in parallel with ...
The Mediterranean plant |i|Silybum marianum|/i| L., commonly known as milk thistle, has been used for centuries to treat liver disorders. The flavonolignan silibinin represents a natural antioxidant and the main bioactive ingredient of silymarin (silybin), a standard extract of its seeds. Mitochondrial dysfunction and the associated generation of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) are involved in the development of chronic liver and age-related neurodegenerative diseases. Silibinin A (SIL A) is one of two diastereomers found in silymarin and was used to evaluate the effects of silymarin on mitochondrial parameters including mitochondrial membrane potential and ATP production with and without sodium nitroprusside- (SNP-) induced nitrosative stress, oxidative phosphorylation, and citrate synthase activity in HepG2 and PC12 cells. Both cell lines were influenced by SIL A, but at different concentrations. SIL A significantly weakened nitrosative stress in both cell lines. Low concentrations not only

Asbestos-induced mutagenicity in the lung may involve reactive oxygen/nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) released by alveolar macrophages. With the aim of proposing an alternative in vitro mutagenesis test, a coculture system of rat alveolar macrophages (NR8383) and transgenic Big Blue Rat2 embryonic fibroblasts was developed and tested with a crocidolite sample. Crocidolite exposure induced no detectable increase in ROS production from NR8383, contrasting with the oxidative burst that occurred following a brief exposure (1 hour) to zymosan, a known macrophage activator. In separated cocultures, crocidolite and zymosan induced different changes in the gene expressions involved in cellular inflammation in NR8383 and Big Blue. In particular, both particles induced up-regulation of iNOS expression in Big Blue, suggesting the formation of potentially genotoxic nitrogen species. However, crocidolite exposure in separated or mixed cocultures induced no mutagenic effects whereas an increase in Big Blue mutants was
We will utilize standard toxicologic assessment and high through-put toxicogenomic approaches, to gauge the relative toxicity of PM collected in regions where particles have greater and lesser effects on health outcomes. Project 3 will address potential limitations by integrating state-of-the-art genomic technologies with traditional and complementary toxicologic assessment. To exploit comparisons of pathobiologic cardiopulmonary responses to respirable airborne PM, in Phase I, we will optimize a battery of well-developed in vitro (human) and in vivo (murine) bioassays including multiple cytokines, indicators of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species burden (ROS/RNS), and biomarkers of vascular and cardiac dysfunction for assessing particle toxicity. For this purpose, we will use a set of particles having differing characteristics: standard NIOSH urban PM, Baltimore tunnel PM, ambient Baltimore air PM, New York City air PM. We will use oligonucleotide-based microarrays to address the hypothesis that ...
The function of the brain is dependent upon sufficient supply of glucose for energy metabolism. The glycolytic pathway and Krebs cycle are important in producing ATP for the brain. Brain dysfunction resulting from an external force is known as traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI is associated with oxidative damage through the production of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species. Reduced energy metabolism is a consequence of TBI. Antioxidants are substances responsible for the inhibition of oxidation. Gamma-glutamylcysteine ethyl ester (GCEE) is an ethyl ester moiety of gamma-glutamylcysteine that exhibits antioxidant activity by increasing glutathione production. Previous studies have demonstrated that the administration of GCEE following TBI has protective effects against protein nitration. This study investigates the enzymatic activity of malate dehydrogenase which has been identified as being nitrated in moderate TBI. To test the hypothesis that the administration of GCEE will normalize enzymatic activity
The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It functions as a control center by regulating and coordinating actions and reactions, which is facilitated via signal transduction pathways. Its function is primarily dependent upon sufficient supply of glucose for energy metabolism. The dysfunction of the brain resulting from an external force is known as traumatic brain injury (TBI). Symptoms range from physical to psychological and effects can be mild, moderate, or severe depending on the extent of injury. TBI is associated with oxidative damage, the overproduction of reactive oxygen/nitrogen species. Reduced energy metabolism is a consequence of traumatic brain injury, while reduced purine salvage is associated with deficient cell signaling. Previous studies have demonstrated that the administration of gamma-glutamylcysteine ethyl ester (GCEE) following TBI has protective effects against protein nitration. This study investigates the enzymatic activity of energy related and salvage related

Abstract. Cardiopulmonary health implications resulting from exposure to secondary organic aerosols (SOA), which comprise a significant fraction of ambient particulate matter (PM), have received increasing interest in recent years. In this study, alveolar macrophages were exposed to SOA generated from the photooxidation of biogenic and anthropogenic precursors (isoprene, α-pinene, β-caryophyllene, pentadecane, m-xylene, and naphthalene) under different formation conditions (RO2 + HO2 vs. RO2 + NO dominant, dry vs. humid). Various cellular responses were measured, including reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) production and secreted levels of cytokines, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). SOA precursor identity and formation condition affected all measured responses in a hydrocarbon-specific manner. With the exception of naphthalene SOA, cellular responses followed a trend where TNF-α levels reached a plateau with increasing IL-6 levels. ROS/RNS levels were ...
Reactive oxygen species (ROS), nitric oxide and other reactive nitrogen species (RNS), are produced by the cells of the cardiovascular system. Oxidative and nitrosative stress may induce damage leading to a variety of diseases, but controlled ROS/RNS generation play a role in redox-sensitive gene expression and cell signaling regulating a plethora of physiological processes. Redox and nitrosative signaling is involved in the control of a large number of vascular functions. Among them the regulation of the vascular tone by the endothelium and smooth muscle cells or the control of blood pressure. Also cardiac functions such as excitation-contraction coupling or myocyte force development are redox signaling-dependent events. Of note, during exercise bursts of ROS and RNS are produced by the cells of the cardiovascular system, which seem essential for the induction of beneficial effects of training. However, ROS/RNS may have damaging effects in various cardiac and vascular disorders such as coronary heart
Except for the role of NO in the activation of guanylate cyclase, which is well established, the involvement of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in signal transduction remains controversial, despite a large body of evidence suggestive of their participation in a variety of signaling pathways. Several problems have limited their acceptance as signaling molecules, with the major one being the difficulty in identifying the specific targets for each pathway and the chemical reactions supporting reversible oxidation of these signaling components, consistent with a second messenger role for ROS and RNS. Nevertheless, it has become clear that cysteine residues in the thiolate (i.e., ionized) form that are found in some proteins can be specific targets for reaction with H(2)O(2) and RNS. This review focuses on the chemistry of the reversible oxidation of those thiolates, with a particular emphasis on the critical thiolate found in protein tyrosine phosphatases as an example.

The present investigation has demonstrated that ionizing radiation in the therapeutic dose range stimulates a transient cellular generation of ROS/RNS. Temporally coincident is a radiation-induced reversible depolarization of the mitochondrial ΔΨ and decrease in mitochondrial entrapped calcein fluorescence, both hallmarks of the mitochondrial permeability transition. The amount of ROS/RNS generated is relatively constant over the dose range tested, but the number of cells that respond increases with the dose. The radiation-induced ROS/RNS generation, ΔΨ depolarization, and calcein release are inhibited by CsA but not by the structural analogue, CsH. Overexpression of the Ca2+-binding protein calbindin 28K or treatment of cells with BAPTA/AM, an intracellular Ca2+ chelator, also effectively block radiation-induced ROS/RNS. The increased ROS/RNS generation observed with radiation is common to all of the cell types examined but for one important exception, the mitochondrial DNA-less ρo ...
Skeletal muscle represents the largest organ of the human body and comprises about 40% of total body mass in humans. Even in people who age well, there is a noticeable loss of muscle strength and function that accelerates dramatically after the age of 60, a major factor in the reduction in life quality for the aging population. Skeletal muscle generates reactive oxygen and reactive nitrogen (ROS/RNS) species in response to muscle contractions. The concentration and species of ROS/RNS generated can depend on the age and fitness of the individual, muscle fibre type and the intensity of the muscle contractions. ROS/RNS generate unique signaling cascades that are not only essential in skeletal muscle contraction and adaptation but also play a role in a wide array of cell processes including cell proliferation, protein synthesis/degradation, immune response and antioxidant defences. ROS/RNS generated by contractions are not blunt oxidation instruments involved in the non-specific oxidation of cellular
Bacteria encounter reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in different environments. For example, in the human body bacterial pathogens are attacked by RNS (and reactive oxygen species) derived from phagocytic cells. DNA and proteins are targets of RNS-induced cellular damage. Bacteria use various mechanisms to resist the actions of RNS (e.g. scavenging, enzymatic inactivation, general stress responses, and repair mechanisms). By using a combination of transcriptome and molecular genetic analyses we have provided a view of how Bacillus subtilis cells respond to and manage nitrosative stress. This part of our studies focuses on exploring bacterial NO-sensing and detoxification mechanisms.. ...

The importance of reactive nitrogen species in atherosclerosis remains poorly understood, despite the semi-quantitative evidence for the presence of 3-nitrotyrosine provided by immunohistochemical staining studies. At this time, there appear to be no data describing the prevalence of nitration relative to oxidation in atherosclerotic plaque proteins. The present study used 3-nitrotyrosine and dityrosine as markers of nitration and oxidation respectively to examine the relative abundance of each process. Substantial methodological improvements were required to overcome problems associated with sensitivity and artefactual production of 3-nitrotyrosine when quantified by GLC-MS. It was shown that careful selection of hydrolysis vessel, sample reduction and the use of the oxazolinone derivative provided sample stability and exquisite sensitivity. Using these methods, it was observed that the frequency of nitration was 92±15μmol/mol of tyrosine (0.01%). Dityrosine was present at 1.5±0.14mmol/mol ...
Research interests include:. -Development & study of synthetic metal-based "mito-protective" superoxide dismutase/catalase (SOD/cat) mimetics.. -SOD/cat mimetics as potential mitigators of radiation injury and combined injury, for example, in a radiological accident or terrorism scenario.. -Broader interest in the role of mitochondrial oxidative injury in neurodegenerative and certain other pathological processes.. Over a number of years, beginning at the small pharmaceutical company Eukarion, we developed and have studied synthetic "mito-protective" superoxide dismutase/catalase (SOD/cat) mimetics as potential therapeutic agents for pathologies in which reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) are implicated. We have focussed on two classes of compounds: (1) Salen manganese complexes that catalytically scavenge ROS and RNS and protect tissues in many experimental models for injury, disease, and degeneration. Examples of these compounds include the "classic" mimetics ...
Written by Dr. Doni Wilson. Our bodies make antioxidants to protect our cells from oxidative stress. For instance, glutathione is one of the most potent antioxidants, and its made right inside our bodies. Thats a rather amazing thought, and yet it makes sense. Plants do the same thing-they make antioxidants, especially when they are under environmental stresses. When we eat plants, we benefit from those very same antioxidants. In fact, the best plant-based source of glutathione is avocados.. Im going to come back to how to increase your glutathione levels, but first lets think through why we need glutathione in the first place. Oxidation is a normal process in our bodies. It happens when we metabolize our food to make energy. It happens when our liver processes toxins, pesticides, pollutants, metals, and medications. Oxidation, or oxidative stress and the subsequent reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) increases tremendously when we become injured, when we have ...
Actually Oxis International, Inc. aims to quell both direct cellular abnormalities and damage of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) and RNS (Reactive Nitrogen Species) which are both factors that cause oxidative stress. To treat oxidative stress, they have these OXIS compounds that modulates the activation of transcription factors which are the bodys central control switches that can bring about and revamp a cascade of interrelated events. One of this is their lead compound (BXT 51072) which is a low molecular weight, orally active, organoselenium catalytic mimic of the major cellular protective antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase (GPx) which uses glutathione as substrate. Furthermore, it regulates secondary inflammatory processes through preventing the activation and release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, adhesion molecules and inflammatory enzymes. ...
My laboratory is an integrated cardiovascular laboratory studying vascular function with a focus on understanding how reactive nitrogen species (RNS) generation alters mitochondrial and endothelial function both in vitro and in vivo. Our expertise allows us to use of state of the art mass spectroscopy techniques in conjunction with cellular techniques to elucidate how post-translational modifications alter protein structure-function relationships and to elucidate pathways how RNS signaling is regulated in endothelial cells in both physiologic and pathologic situations. Further, we also have the expertise to carry these studies into clinically relevant animal models of endothelial dysfunction both to confirm our cell culture studies and, through directed interventions, to modulate these signaling pathways to determine effects on endothelial function in the intact animal. Further, though collaboration with clinician investigators we are now expanding our studies into humans. My laboratory is ...
Professor Schöneichs research focuses on the oxidative post-translational modification of proteins in vitro and in vivo. These are generally carried out by reactive oxygen species and/or reactive nitrogen species. In vivo, such oxidative modifications accompany physiological disorders associated with biological aging or disease. While major scientific advances have been made through the sequencing of the human genome, it has been recognized that in many cases only the detailed characterization and quantification of the protein complement (the "proteome") will lead to an accurate understanding of human disease and aging. Moreover, in addition to quantification of the expression levels of certain proteins a detailed map of their post-translational modifications is necessary. Such research is carried out in our group. We are using state-of-the-art analytical proteomics and tandem mass spectrometry techniques to characterize post-translationally modified proteins in tissue. Experiments involve ...

Alkyl nitrates (RONO2 ) are important components of tropospheric reactive nitrogen that serve as reservoirs for nitrogen oxides (NOx ≡ NO + NO2 ). Here we implement a new simulation of atmospheric methyl, ethyl, and propyl nitrate chemistry in a global chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem). We show that the model can reproduce the spatial and seasonal variability seen in a 20-year ensemble of airborne observations. Methyl nitrate accounts for 17 Gg N globally, with maxima over the tropical Pacific and Southern Ocean. Propyl nitrate is enhanced in continental boundary layers, but its global impact (6 Gg N) is limited by a short lifetime (8 days vs. 26 days for methyl nitrate and 14 days for ethyl nitrate) that inhibits long-range transport. Ethyl nitrate has the smallest impact of the three species (4 Gg N). We find that methyl nitrate is the dominant form of reactive nitrogen (NOy ) in the Southern Ocean marine boundary layer, where its addition to the model corrects a large NOy underestimate ...

ISSN 1996-7489.. Atmospheric reactive nitrogen concentrations on the South African Highveld have become a growing concern, with satellite images indicating very high nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations in the region. This study investigated the nitrogen budget on the Highveld through the analysis of the concentration of the atmospheric nitrogen species on a temporal scale as well as the atmospheric conversion, transport and removal of these species. Data were collected at Eskoms Elandsfontein ambient air quality monitoring site, which is centrally located on the industrialised Highveld. A years dataset from 2005 and 2006 was analysed and it was found that nitrogen oxide (NOx) concentrations were higher in winter as a result of stable atmospheric conditions, as well as prevalent westerly and ...
In the study to evaluate the anti-inflammatory potential of a series of trihydroxyflavones by testing their ability to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in cells and cell-free systems and to inhibit the proinflammatory pathways mediated by the enzymes cyclooxygenase (COX) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), in which reactive species have a proven involvement, showed that The tested trihydroxyflavones proved to be effective inhibitors of neutrophils oxidative burst and were shown to scavenge different ROS and RNS in cell-free systems. The most active compound in the majority of the assays was 3,3,4-trihydroxyflavone, which was somehow expected due to the presence of the ortho-dihydroxy in the B-ring, an important structural feature in terms of free radical scavenging activity and the compounds were able to inhibit the production of leukotriene B(4) by 5-LOX in activated neutrophils. 3,5,7-Trihydroxyflavone was able to inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2, which makes ...
I wrote several columns about mitochondria last January (#301, #302, #303). To review: mitochondria are tiny organelles inside almost every cell of our body which generate the energy for all cell functions by converting our food to CO2 and water in a complex biochemical pathway called respiration. In the process of respiration electrons sometimes leak out of the system where they combine with oxygen or nitrogen to form free radicals called Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) or Reactive Nitrogen Species (RNS) which can damage the mitochondrial DNA. Damage to the DNA eventually results in the death of the mitochondrion. When enough mitochondria die, the cell dies; when enough cells in a tissue or organ dies, the organ fails causing degenerative disease and ultimately our own death ...
Nitric oxide (NO) has been implicated in several cellular processes as a signaling molecule and also as a source of reactive nitrogen species (RNS). NO is produced by three isoenzymes called nitric oxide synthases (NOS), all present in skeletal muscle. While neuronal NOS (nNOS) and endothelial NOS (eNOS) are isoforms constitutively expressed, inducible NOS (iNOS) is mainly expressed during inflammatory responses. Recent studies have demonstrated that NO is also involved in the mitochondrial biogenesis pathway, having PGC-1α as the main signaling molecule. Increased NO synthesis has been demonstrated in the sarcolemma of skeletal muscle fiber and NO can also reversibly inhibit cytochrome c oxidase (Complex IV of the respiratory chain). Investigation on cultured skeletal myotubes treated with NO donors, NO precursors or NOS inhibitors have also showed a bimodal effect of NO that depends on the concentration used. The present review will discuss the new insights on NO roles on mitochondrial biogenesis and
Understanding the genetic safeguarding mechanism of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) may help us to explain i), how Mtb survive the genetic assaults elicited by both reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) produced by host macrophages and ii), why some strains of Mtb, e.g., Mtb strains from East Asian lineage and Beijing sublineage, exhibit high mutation rate and are more likely to acquire drug resistant mutations (e.g., rifampicin-resistance mutation) during infection. Mutation frequency analysis is a basic methods to study the genetic safeguarding mechanism. Moreover, to study the molecular mechanism of mutation, it is necessary to analyse the mutation spectrum (For example, oxidized cytosine may induce CG to TA mutation.). This protocol describes a method to determine the mutation frequency and understand the mutation spectrum in both Mycobacterium smegmatis (Msm) and Mtb.

The seemingly disparate areas of oxygen toxicity, radiation exposure, and aging are now recognized to share a common feature-the aberrant production and/or removal of biologically derived free radicals and other reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS). Advances in our understanding of the effects of free radicals in biology and medicine have been, and continue to be, actively translated into clinically tractable diagnostic and therapeutic applications. This issue is dedicated to recent advances, both basic discoveries and clinical applications, in the field of free radicals in biology and medicine. As more is understood about the proximal biological targets of aberrantly produced or removed reactive species, their sensors, and effectors of compensatory response, a great deal more will be learned about the commonalities in mechanisms underlying seemingly disparate disease states. Together with this deeper understanding, opportunities will arise to devise rational therapeutic interventions to

Abstract: The melatonin metabolite N1-acetyl-5-methoxykynuramine (AMK) was found to be unstable in air when adsorbed on a thin-layer silica gel chromatography plate, a result that is in good agreement with the relatively high reactivity of this compound. Three novel main products were separated from the reaction mixture and identified by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance data as: (i) 3-acetamidomethyl-6-methoxycinnolinone (AMMC), (ii) 3-nitro-AMK (AMNK, N1-acetyl-5-methoxy-3-nitrokynuramine), and (iii) N-[2-(6-methoxyquinazolin-4-yl)-ethyl]-acetamide (MQA). AMMC and AMNK are shown to be nonenzymatically formed also in solution, by nitric oxide (NO) in the first case, and by a mixture of peroxynitrite and hydrogen carbonate, in the second one. The use of three different NO donors, PAPA-NONOate, S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine and sodium nitroprussiate led to essentially the same results, with regard to a highly preferential formation of AMMC; AMNK was not detected in these reaction ...
