What is it about?
Bacteria are exposed to nitric oxide from many sources, especially in anaerobic environments including the human body. How it is detoxified anaerobically is a major source of disagreement, largely because the literature is based upon experiments that fail to reflect conditions encountered by bacteria in their natural environments. This review shows how chemical damage inactivates proteins, preventing their physiological roles from being revealed.
