This paper investigates the effects of sodium nitroprusside as NO donor on two cell lines in culture: transformed cells of mice fibroblasts (L929) and malignant cells of human eritroleukemia (K562). Low concentrations of NO have stimulative effect, while high concentrations have inhibitive effects on proliferation of K562 cells in a dose-dependent manner. In our experiments, by using sodium nitroprusside (SNP) as NO donor and two kinds of superoxide dismutase, Cu,Zn-SOD and Mn-SOD, we created conditions to generate several kinds of signal molecules and investigated reaction of transformed (L929) and malignant (K562) cells to dose. Results of experiments are showing that chosen parameters (amount of free thiol groups and glutathione) may be relevant in monitoring the effect of exogenous nitrate oxide and its redox descendants in different, both transformed and malignant cell lines.
