A novel heme peptide and a method for producing the same are disclosed.
The invention provides a peptide with a potent NO-scavenging ability
which can be used in capturing/quantifying NO and can be used as a
diagnostic agent, prophylactic agent or therapeutic agent for diseases in
which NO is involved, as a research reagent, as a reagent for measuring
NO concentrations in the environment, and as a treating agent for
removing NO in the environment.
