Intracellular free iron in liver tissue and liver homogenate: studies with electron paramagnetic resonance on the formation of paramagnetic complexes with desferal and nitric oxide.

Treatment of intact liver and liver homogenate with sodium nitrite, or desferal, brings about the appearance of g = 2.03 and g = 4.3 electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR) signals, respectively. The g = 2.03 signal is conditioned by the formation of dinitrosyl complexes of Fe(II); the g = 4.3 signal is related to the appearance of paramagnetic desferal-Fe(III) complexes. Desferal and sodium nitrite were administered successively into liver homogenate, resulting in only a g = 4.3 EPR signal. And, vice versa, if desferal was administered after sodium nitrite, there appeared only the signal with g = 2.03. These data testify to the fact that one and the same endogenous free iron is included in both paramagnetic centers. The concentration of iron ions was measured in intact tissue according to the formation of dinitrosyl-iron complexes and desferal-iron complexes. It was 33.2 +/- 4.6 and 20.3 +/- 4.0 nmol/g of tissue weight, respectively. The data obtained testify to the fact that free endogenous iron is present in intact tissue. Possibilities of the EPR method for estimation of the content of intracellular free iron are discussed.[1]
