Nitric oxide release via oxygen atom transfer from nitrite at copper(II)

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nitric oxide is a vital signaling molecule that controls blood flow and oxygenation and nitrite serves as an important reservoir for nitric oxide in biology. While copper containing enzymes are known to reduce nitrite to nitric oxide, herein we report a new pathway to release nitric oxide via oxygen atom transfer from nitrite at a copper(II) site.
