Detailed reaction mechanism compiled from literature was tested on diabetic rat aorta samples for which nitric oxide, superoxide formations and spin clearance rate were measured by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) method. The rate of superoxide formation was 1.0×10-7 M s-1. Kinetic calculations predicted ranges of nitric oxide formation rate and of nitric oxide, superoxide, peroxynitrite concentrations viable in the investigated biological entity.
