Role of the paths of formaldehyde and nitric oxide metabolism interdependence
in mechanism of their toxic action. I. Exo- and endogenous sources of formaldehyde
and nitric oxide. Toxic action of formaldehyde

M. P. Dmitrenko, A. Holian 

Possible exogenous sources of formaldehyde and nitric oxide have been considered; the environment pollution conditions under which these compounds and their precursors have mutual effect on the organism; endogenous sources of FA and NO which are intermediates of the metabolism and key enzymes of their transformation (semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase and NO-synthase) the role of the C1 metabolic cycle pathways and methyl cycles in the FA formation and accumulation have been considered as well, various paths of FA toxic action have been characterized.
