The journey from NADPH-cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase to nitric oxide synthases

Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications

Abstract

This mini-review will reflect the perspective of its author on two fields of research, which have merged as the result of the insights of investigators whose work has influenced both areas immeasurably. It cannot be overlooked, however, that the research activities of many during a period of over five decades have produced the chemical and biological bases for the exciting discoveries now encompassing the cytochromes P450 and their redox partners, and the three isoforms of nitric oxide synthase as they function in their respective biological milieux. Following the remarkable discovery that, indeed, molecular oxygen can be adducted to organic molecules by enzymatic systems and that such processes require a supply of reducing equivalents, it is the purpose of this review to provide a chart, with some of its detours, of the road that followed in the pursuit of interesting biological phenomena involving these two major oxygenation systems. It is not intended to be a balanced review and apologies must be offered in advance to those whose contributions may be overlooked or simply were not directly germane to the development of the author's journey.

COVID-19

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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
