Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmacology of Hydrogen Sulfide by Philip K. Moore, Matt Whiteman

By Philip K. Moore, Matt Whiteman

This e-book places hydrogen sulfide in context with different gaseous mediators comparable to nitric oxide and carbon monoxide, studies the to be had mechanisms for its biosynthesis and describes its physiological and pathophysiological roles in a large choice of sickness states. Hydrogen sulfide has lately been found to be a certainly taking place gaseous mediator within the physique. Over a comparatively brief time period this evanescent fuel has been printed to play key roles in a number of physiological procedures together with keep watch over of blood vessel quality and for that reason blood strain and within the legislation of nerve functionality either within the mind and the outer edge. issues about the biosynthesis or job of hydrogen sulfide can also predispose the physique to ailment states comparable to irritation, cardiovascular and neurological issues. curiosity during this novel fuel has been excessive lately and plenty of examine teams all over the world have defined its person organic results. additionally, medicinal chemists are starting to synthesize novel natural molecules that unlock this gasoline at outlined charges so that it will exploiting those new compounds for healing benefit.

Sample text

Therefore, assuming that H2S2 is an important player in the biological system would be wrong. If formed, H2S2 would immediately decompose. Longer polysulfides are more stable, with x ¼ 4 and/or 5 being the most abundant species. They are formed even in biological milieu and could be responsible for the part of the effects assigned to H2S (Fig. 3e). Indeed, Kimura et al. (2013) demonstrated that polysulfides have a 300 times higher potency in activating TRP channels. In addition, Greiner et al. (2013) linked polysulfides to protein thiol oxidation suggesting that all sources of H2S (salts and H2S donors) inevitably contain polysulfides, which in turn oxidize cysteine residues leading to persulfide formation.

2013). H2S is produced by the action of at least three enzymes, cystathionine beta synthase (CBS), cystathionine gamma lyase (CSE) and mercaptopyruvate sulfurtransferase (MST) (Kabil et al. 2014; Kabil and Banerjee 2014). Differently expressed in different tissues (and even cellular compartments), these enzymes control H2S production with different efficiencies. How are these enzymes regulated to maintain spatio-temporal production/distribution of H2S is still unclear. The intracellular levels of H2S are also a matter of debate, with values spanning from nondetectable to >100 μM, although it seems more probable that the steadystate levels are at low micromolar and/or submicromolar levels, depending on the tissue (Olson 2012; Olson et al.
