A reinvestigation of the reaction of desferrioxamine with superoxide radicals. A pulse radiolysis study

S Goldstein, G Czapski


The reaction of desferrioxamine with superoxide has been studied using the pulse radiolysis technique. The decay of O2- was not accelerated in the presence of up to 4 x 10(-4) M desferrioxamine at physiological pH. The rate constant was found to be lower than 2 x 10(4) M-1s-1. In acid solutions the rate constant of the reaction between desferrioxamine and HO'2 was found to be lower than 10(5) M-1s-1. The reaction was not studied in alkaline solutions due to the high absorbance of desferrioxamine in the U.V. region. The pK of desferrioxamine was determined to be 9.2 +/- 0.05.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
