Antibacterial effect of cysteine-nitrosothiol and possible percursors thereof.

Abstract

The postulated intermediate of nitrite-myoglobin reaction, cysteine-nitrosothiol, was prepared and its antibacterial effect was tested on Salmonella strains, Streptococcus faecium, and spores and vegetative cells of Clostridium sporogenes. Cysteine-nitrosothiol showed a higher inhibitory effect than nitrite. Preliminary results on the effect of simultaneous use of nitrite and cysteine on Clostridium sporogenes spores were also presented.
