Abstract:
Peroxynitrite, a potent pro-inflammatory and cytotoxic species, interacts with a variety of heme containing proteins. We addressed the question whether (i) the interaction of myeloperoxidase (MPO, an enzyme generating hypochlorous acid from hydrogen peroxide and chloride ions) with peroxynitrite affects the clearance of peroxynitrite, and (ii) if peroxynitrite could modulate the chlorinating activity of MPO. Our results show that this interaction promotes the decomposition of the highly reactive pro-inflammatory oxidant, whereby MPO Compound II (but not Compound I) is formed. The efficiency of MPO to remove peroxynitrite was enhanced by l-tyrosine, nitrite and (-)-epicatechin, substances known to reduce Compound II with high reaction rate. Next, peroxynitrite (added as reagent) diminished the chlorinating activity of MPO in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. Alternatively, SIN-1, a peroxynitrite donor, reduced hypochlorous acid formation by MPO, as measured by aminophenyl fluorescein oxidation (time kinetics) and taurine chloramine formation (end point measurement). At inflammatory loci, scavenging of peroxynitrite by MPO may overcome the uncontrolled peroxynitrite decomposition and formation of reactive species, which lead to cell/tissue damage.
