Scientists Set Out to Develop Safer Versions of Acetaminophen

Acetaminophen (ApAP) is an electron donor capable of reducing radicals generated by redox cycling of hemeproteins. It acts on the prostaglandin H synthases (cyclooxygenases; COXs) to reduce the protoporphyrin radical cation in the peroxidase site of the enzyme, thus preventing the intramolecular electron transfer that generates the Tyr385 radical required for abstraction of a hydrogen […]
