nitrosative stress

German: nitrosativer Stress
Japanese: ニトロソ化ストレス

Biochemistry. A condition that occurs when the production of reactive nitrogen-containing chemicals, such as nitric oxide, exceeds the ability of the organism to neutralize and eliminate them. Nitrosative stress can lead to altered protein structure thus inhibiting normal function. Nitrotyrosine is a marker for oxidative and nitrosative stress.
