Chemical Information
Description3-Nitrotyrosine (NTyr) is formed in vivo in tissue or blood proteins after exposure to nitrosating and/or nitrating agents such as tetranitromethane. (PMID 8319651) Reactive nitrogen species such as peroxynitrite can nitrate specific amino acids, whether free or protein bound, and 3-nitrotyrosine is believed to be one marker of this reaction.
