The past decade has witnessed the discovery of endogenously
produced hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as a new signaling molecule. H2S has the ability to diffuse throw
cell membrane within milliseconds, do not need any type of receptor to modulate
its action. H2S has the ability
to act as a neurotransmitter, regulator of blood pressure, antioxidant
upregulation, immunomodulator or anti-apoptotic agent, together with its great
pharmacological potential, is now well established.
primarily focuses physical and chemical properties and physiological actions of
H2S and nitric oxide (NO). In addition to studying a novel post-translational modification induced by H2S, named S-sulfhydration (SSH of cysteine amino acid) and
its effect on modifying different cellular proteins. The S-sulfhydrated
proteins activate/deactivate many signaling pathways or regulatory proteins. A long term goal is to accelerate the
development and application of H2S -related drugs in the future.
