The Biological Effect of Dinitrosyl Iron Complexes with Glutathione upon Nitric Oxide Hyperproduction Induced by Endotoxin Shock

Abstract—The objective of this work was to study the biological effect of dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs) with the glutathione ligand (GSH−DNICs) as a stabilized form of nitric oxide in a rat model of nitric oxide hyperproduction induced by inflammation. Administration of GSH−DNICs in endotoxin shock did not increase the total nitric oxide levels in rat organs, but exerted a protective effect by suppressing nitric oxide hyperproduction in the liver and led to an accumulation of the complexes with protein ligands in the kidney.
