Summary of "Ni-ATCUN Catalyzed Tyrosine Nitration in Presence of Nitrite and Sulfite."

The nitration of tyrosine residues in proteins represents a specific footprint of the formation of reactive nitrogen species (RNS) in vivo. Herein, we use fusion product of ORange Protein (ATCUN-ORP) as a vitro model system containing an ATCUN tag at N-terminus and a native tyrosine residue in the metal-cofactor binding region for the formation of 3-NO2Tyr (3-NT). The present study shows that NiII-ATCUN unusually performs nitration of tyrosine at physiological pH in presence of NO2-/SO32-/O2 system, which revealed by a characteristic absorbance band at 430 nm in basic medium and 350 nm in acidic medium (fingerprint of 3-NT). Kinetics studies showed that the formation of 3-NT depends on sulfite concentration over nitrite concentration suggested key intermediate product, oxysulfur radicals, which are detected by spin-trap (DMPO) EPR study. This study find new route in the formation of 3-NT and may link with sulfur metabolism pathway associated progression of disease states in vivo.
