About Hydrogen Sulfide

Although hydrogen sulfide is generally thought of in terms of a poisonous gas, it is endogenously produced in many mammalian tissues. It has been detected in micromolar amounts in blood and brain tissue. Hydrogen sulfide is reported as having a broad range of biological functions and although its potential to participate in cell signaling is clear, this biological role is not well understood. Hydrogen sulfide is strongly anagolous to nitric oxide because they share several physical and metabolic properties.
