Objective: The aim of this study was to test the action of Porphyrin compounds, Tetraphenylporphine sulfonate (TPPS), 5,10,15,20-Tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrinato Iron(III) Chloride (FeTPPS) and 5,10,15,20-Tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrinato Iron(III) nitrosyl Chloride (FeNOTPPS), on Na+, K+ -ATPase of cell membrane of erythrocytes.
The first seven chapters discuss medicinal chemistry, covering the topics of organometallic enzyme inhibitors, organometallic steroid analogs, chirality in chemotherapeutics, gold complexes, the antimalarial ferroquine, metal carbonyls as prodrugs, and the electronics of nitrosyl and thiol iron complexes.
2]S releases NO from nitrosoglutathione, S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine, SNP, and brain homogenates, which may contain nitrosothiols and metal nitrosyl complexes, to relax the vasculature.
3]- Peroxyl Singlet oxygen Nitrosyl radical ROO * 1[O.
Ferrous ascorbate is known to form with nitric oxide paramagnetic nitrosyl ferrous ascorbate complexes -Fe-AA-NO.
A final chapter looks at the oxidative ion-radical mechanisms in polymer interactions with diamagnetic nitrogen dioxide dimers in the form of nitrosyl nitrate.
NO is known to be released from nitrosyl hemoglobin or nitrosoglutathione by light irradiation (13).
It is stored as a nitrosyl ligand in an iron(II) complex to be released as necessary.
By absorbing the nitrogen oxide gas, the compound forms an iron nitrosyl complex that can be converted into ammonia, thus liberating the iron catalyst for further use.
