S-Nitrosothiols (RSNOs), including nitrosoglutathione (GSNO), nitrosocysteine, and nitroso-albumin, exist in fresh blood and are formed from the reaction of the corresponding thiols with oxidation intermediates of nitric oxide (NO) produced by endothelial (EC) and other cells (1).
Hemoglobin scavenges nitric oxide through the high-affinity ferrous sites on heme to form S-nitrosothiol (with an affinity to nitric oxide 8,000 times that of their affinity for oxygen) (33) by binding at b 93 cysteine residue on the globin chain.
