Examples

  • This process, called nitrosation, converts some substances found in foods or contaminated water into cancer-causing compounds.

    BusinessWeek.com --

  • These processes include nitrosation, or the conversion of some substances found in foods or contaminated water into carcinogens.

    Analysis

  • That research team then turned to Harrison and colleagues, who explored the methods required to precisely quantify biomarkers in urine for both the garlic consumption and the presence of nitrosoproline, the indicator that nitrosation has occurred.

    High Plains Journal: Ag News

  • When the test was used on the urine samples from the pilot garlic study, it showed that the participants who had taken garlic had lower concentrations of the marker for nitrosation than did those who took no garlic.

  • Vitamin C had a similar effect in lowering the marker for nitrosation.

    High Plains Journal: Ag News

  • "The precise mechanism by which garlic and other compounds affect nitrosation is under extensive investigation, but is not clear at this time," he said.

  • S-nitrosylation or nitrosation is the modification of sulfhydryl (- SH) to S-nitroso (- SNO) groups and appears to occur at a molar NO/O

  • S-nitroso groups are unstable and protein S-nitrosation is therefore a rapidly and spontaneously reversible posttranslational modification.
