  • "An IgM-mediated immune response directed against nitro-bovine serum albumin (nitro-BSA) in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and major depression: evidence that nitrosative stress is another factor underpinning the comorbidity between major depression and CFS."

    Leo Galland, M.D.: Do You Have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

  • As you may know, oxidative or nitrosative stress is now thought to underlie chronic fatigue syndrome, as set out by Martin Pall.

  • Oxidative and nitrosative stress are targets for intervention after ischemia

  • One can thus reasonably speculate that these latter conditions generated a nitrative rather than or parallel to a nitrosative stress.

  • This is further supported by our observation of cytoplasmic accumulation of α-synuclein and ubiquitin in the nigral dopamine-producing neurons, as extensive nitrosative / oxidative stress might cause impairment of the ubiquitin proteasome system resulting in accumulation of misfolded proteins

  • Mutation of the iron-responsive regulator Fur results in insensitivity of growth to NO, suggesting that derepression of iron-regulated genes and augmentation of iron acquisition is a physiological response to nitrosative damage.

  • It has been widely observed that when iNOS is up regulated and NO is present in high concentrations it contributes to nitrosative and oxidative stress.

  • UK physicist and radiation expert Professor Barrie Trower explains how wireless microwaves can radically alter human genetics through mitochondrial damage: "Permanent low level microwave exposure induces chronic nitrosative and oxidative stress to human cells.
