WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality

This book presents WHO guidelines for the protection of public health from risks due to a number of chemicals commonly present in indoor air. The substances considered in this review, i.e. benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, naphthalene, nitrogen dioxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (especially benzo[a]pyrene), radon, trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene, have indoor sources, are known in respect of their hazardousness to health and are often found indoors in concentrations of health concern. The guidelines are targeted at public health professionals involved in preventing health risks of environmental exposures, as well as specialists and authorities involved in the design and use of buildings, indoor materials and products. They provide a scientific basis for legally enforceable standards.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a gas that transmits signals in an organism. Signal transmission by a gas that is produced by one cell and which penetrates through membranes and regulates the function of another cell represents an entirely new principle for signaling in biological systems. NO is a signal molecule of key importance for the cardiovascular system acting as a regulator of blood pressure and as a gatekeeper of blood flow to different organs. NO also exerts a series of

Chapter 1. Bioinorganic Chemistry of Nitric Oxide and S-Nitrosothiols The interplay of nitric oxide (NO), biological thiols, and metals has been a topic of intense study since the discovery of NO as the endothelium-derived relaxation factor. NO is a redox-active diatomic, radical gas that is generated biologically during the conversion of L-arginine to L-citrulline by nitric oxide synthases (NOS), NADH, and 02. NOS enzymes have ironporphyrin and biopterin cofactors that catalyze this conversion. S-nitrosothiols form in biology as NO-transport mechanisms, post-translational modifications,
