Book Description :

The Chemistry and Biology of Nitroxyl (HNO) provides first-of-its-kind coverage of the intriguing biologically active molecule called nitroxyl, or azanone per IUPAC nomenclature, which has been traditionally elusive due to its intrinsically high reactivity. This useful resource provides the scientific basis to understand the chemistry, biology, and technical aspects needed to deal with HNO. Building on two decades of nitric oxide and nitroxyl research, the editors and authors have created an indispensable guide for investigators across a wide variety of areas of chemistry (inorganic, organic, organometallic, biochemistry, physical, and analytical); biology (molecular, cellular, physiological, and enzymology); pharmacy; and medicine. This book begins by exploring the unique molecule’s structure and reactivity, including important reactions with small molecules, thiols, porphyrins, and key proteins, before discussing chemical and biological sources of nitroxyl. Advanced chapters discuss methods for both trapping and detecting nitroxyl by spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and fluorescent inorganic cellular probing. Expanding on the compound’s foundational chemistry, this book then explores its molecular physiology to offer insight into its biological implications, pharmacological effects, and practical issues. Presents the first book on HNO (nitroxyl or azanone), an increasingly important molecule in biochemistry and pharmaceutical research Provides a valuable coverage of HNO’s chemical structure and significant reactions, including practical guidance on working with this highly reactive molecule Contains high quality content from recognized experts in both industry and academia

Book Description :

In the short time since the first nitroxyl radical was obtained in 1959, a new branch of chemical science has arisen and taken shape-the chemistry of stable nitroxyl radicals. The present book was written by E. G. Rozantsev, one of the pioneers in this field and a prominent specialist on stable radicals at the Division of Chemical and Biological Processes of the Institute of Chemical Physics, Academy of Sciences of the USSR. His numerous papers have contributed greatly to the present situation, wherein nitroxyl radicals have acquired unusually wide popularity, including the fields of biology, medicine, chemis try, physics, biophysics, and instrument construction. A clear illustration of the astonishingly vigorous development of this new field of chemistry can be given by the enormous flow of information on the synthesis and use of nitroxyl radicals. There is no doubt that this monograph, which in part generalizes the results of many workers studying these radicals, will be received with interest by specialists working in this field. The author has not attempted to give an exhaustive account of the material. His aim is to introduce the reader to this new field and to show the wide possibilities for using radicals in scientific experiment. The voluminous bibliography, including many papers by the author himself which may not be well enough known to the American reader, will undoubtedly contribute to the usefulness of the monograph.

Book Description :

Nitroxyl (HNO) is a biologically relevant small molecule with considerable clinical promise for the treatment of heart failure. However, studies of the chemistry and biology of nitroxyl are hampered by its instability in aqueous solution. To aid in biological and chemical studies, nitroxyl donors (molecules that degrade to release HNO) have been synthesized which utilize a 3-hydroxy-2-naphthyl methyl (HNM) OH protecting group. Our group0́9s focus is on the synthesis of nitroxyl donors that rapidly release HNO under physiological conditions through photoactivation. First generation HNO donors released HNO upon photoactivation, but competition was also observed from a redox side reaction. In this study, we are probing the impact of a methyl substituent at the benzylic position on these competing processes. The synthesis and photochemical anaylsis of such a donor are herein described.

Book Description :

This book is based on two keywords: Bioradical and ESR. Bioradical is a newly coined word which encompasses paramagnetic species in biological systems, such as active oxygen radicals and transition metal ions. Research on the structure and function of bioradicals has been attrac ting growing attention in the field of biological science, and comprehensive investigations from many fields are helping to understand the real features of these species. ESR spectroscopy also has interdisciplinary features in that its techniques have been applied to many fields, ranging from physics to medicine. It was our hope, therefore, that this book would help to clarify many aspects of bioradicals and that significant progress would be achieved in combining basic research from many different fields. This book arises from the First International Conference on Bioradicals Detected by ESR Spectroscopy (ICBES), which was held in Yamagata, a city in the Yamagata Prefecture of Japan, in 1994. About 300 participants from 16 different countries attended this conference, and about 170 papers were presented. This book is a collection of contributions from the conference and also contains eleven chapters selected by the editorial board, based on sugges tions from the members of the international editorial board of ICBES. The Yamagata Technopolis Foundation is developing a biomedical technology for the 21st century based on life science fused with material and physical science. Based on such a techno logy, the Foundation plans to share its fruits all over the world.

Book Description :

Nitric oxide (NO, 0́NO), the `1992 Molecule of the Year', is a gaseous messenger molecule produced in cells from L-arginine by nitric oxide synthases. The chemical and biological properties of NO have been extensively studied for well over a decade. However, recent studies have shown that nitroxyl (nitrosyl hydride, HNO), the one-electron-reduction product of NO, may also be formed in biological systems, from nitric oxide synthase-catalyzed oxidation of L-arginine in the absence of tetrahydrobiopterin and by enzyme catalyzed reduction of NO. Much less is known about the reactivity of HNO, including its reactivity with transition metal complexes. A fundamental understanding of this is important, given that about one third of proteins are metalloproteins. In this dissertation we present detailed kinetic and mechanistic studies of the reactions of two well characterized HNO donors, Angeli's salt (AS) and Piloty's acid (PA), with cobalamins (vitamin B12 derivatives). Cobalamins have important role as cofactors in two B12-dependent enzymatic reactions in humans. Furthermore, cobalamins have three readily accessible oxidation states. Chapter 2 of this dissertation is concerned with studies on the reactions of reduced vitamin B12 complexes, cob(II)alamin (Cbl(II)) and cob(I)alamin (Cbl(I)-), with the HNO donor PA. Cob(II)alamin is a major intracellular form of B12 and cob(I)alamin is a short-lived precursor of the two B12 coenzyme forms methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Although it is well established that HNO reduces transition metals including transition metal centers of porphyrins and metalloproteins, oxidation of a transition metal center by HNO has yet to be reported. Kinetic studies on the reaction of Cbl(II) with PA show that PA decomposition to give HNO (and C6H5SO2-) is the rate-determining step, the reaction stoichiometry is 1:2 Cbl(II):PA, and nitroxylcobalamin (NOCbl), N2 and C6H5SO2- being formed. A mechanism is proposed in which reduction of Cbl(II) by HNO results in formation of cob(I)alamin (Cbl(I)-) and NO. Cob(I)alamin intermediate is subsequently oxidized back to Cbl(II) by a second HNO molecule, and Cbl(II) reacts rapidly with NO to form nitroxylcobalamin, NOCbl. Chapter 3 involves kinetic studies on the reaction of the oxidized form of cobalamin (Cbl(III), aquacobalamin/hydroxocobalamin; pKa(H2OCbl+ = 7.8)) with PA. Under alkaline conditions (pH > 10.00), the rate-determining-step is decomposition of deprotonated PA to give 3NO-(pKa(HNO) = 11.4). The hydroxo ligand of hydroxocobalamin is inert to substitution. It is therefore likely that 3NO- (and also possibly HNO) reduce Cbl(III) to Cbl(II), being oxidized to NO. Cbl(II) and NO rapidly combine to give the observed NOCbl product. At lower pH conditions ( pH 10), PA instead reacts directly with Cbl(III) to give NOCbl. The mechanism of this latter reaction is unclear.Chapters 4 and 5 are focused on studies of the reaction between Angeli's salt and Cbl(II) and Cbl(III), respectively. The reaction of Cbl(II) with AS occurs via a Cbl(I)- intermediate with AS decomposition being the rate-determining-step. The reaction stoichiometry is 1:2 Cbl(II):AS and NOCbl, nitrite and N2 are the reaction products. As for the Cbl(II)/PA system, HNO reduces the Cbl(II) to Cbl(I)- and a second HNO molecule oxidize Cbl(I)- back to Cbl(II), followed by the combination of NO and Cbl(II) to give NOCbl. The reaction of AS with Cbl(III), however, undergoes via different mechanisms depending upon the pH conditions. At pH

Book Description :

This work contains over thirty chapters by leading researchers in the field of oxidative biology, originally presented as articles in an extended Forum in the highly-cited journal, Free Radical Biology & Medicine. The papers in this Forum (or Symposium-in-print) spanned seven issues of the journal, over many months. This is the first time that all of these expert contributions are presented in one place. Reliable methods for measuring OSS in organisms are essential. These would, amongst other things, offer applications as early warning signals for cancer and heart disease - eventually giving a range of measurable oxidation products best related to any given disease state. Additional observations relevant to OSS include: how much do measures of OSS vary in a group of humans? Does OSS decrease as a result of life-change factors and does it increase with age? With disease? With stress? Can a non-invasive, reliable, reputable measure of OSS be identified? This informative book provides the reader with the latest status of studies into OSS, currently used examples of BOSS, and answers to at least some of the questions posed above.
