Asymmetric Dimethylarginine and 3-Nitrotyrosine Levels of the Heart Tissue aſter Endotoxemia

Aim: Oxidative and nitrosative stress are important in the pathogenesis of heart dysfunction after endotoxemia. Asymmetric dimethylarginine competitively inhibits nitric oxide production by displacing L-arginine. A link between asymmetric dimethylarginine and inflammation has been demonstrated recently in the prediction of cardiovascular events. Peroxynitrite is a reaction product formed by the interaction between nitric oxide and superoxide. Material and Methods: In…
