Mitigation of NADPH Oxidase 2 Activity as a Strategy to Inhibit Peroxynitrite Formation

Abstract : Using a high-throughput screening (HTS)-compatible assays for superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, we identified potential inhibitors of NADPH oxidase (Nox2) isoform from a small library of bioactive compounds. By using multiple probes (hydroethidine, hydropropidine, Amplex Red, and coumarin boronate) with well-defined redox chemistry that form highly diagnostic marker products upon reaction with superoxide (O 2 • –), hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2), and peroxynitrite (ONOO –), the number of false positives was greatly decreased. Selected hits for Nox2 were further screened for their ability to inhibit ONOO – formation in activated macrophages. New diagnostic marker product for ONOO – is reported. We conclude that the newly developed HTS/ROS assays could also be used to identify potential inhibitors of ONOO – formed from Nox2-derived O 2 • – and nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-derived nitric oxide.
