2012_06/2012Kinetic and Mechanistic Studies on the Reactions of the Reduced Vitamin B12 Complex Cob(I)alamin with Nitrite and Nitrate (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 6/2012)

The cover picture shows that nitrate and especially nitrite rapidly oxidize cob(I)alamin to cob(II)alamin. Enzyme-bound cob(I)alamin is a short-lived species whose formation is essential for the activity of both mammalian vitamin B12 dependent enzymes. Nitrite and nitrate, intracellular levels of which are elevated during oxidative/nitrosative stress as a consequence of elevated nitric oxide levels, are generally considered to be benign species. Details are discussed in the article by N. E. Brasch et al. on p. 913 ff. The cover picture was designed by Rohan S. Dassanayake.
