Nitric oxide (NO) is an important endogenous regulatory molecule, and S-nitrosothiols are believed to play a significant role in NO storage, transport, and delivery. Based on the ability to generate NO in vivo, S-nitrosothiols can be used as therapeutic drugs. In this study, we have developed an innovative method for sequence- and base-specific delivery of NO to a specific site of DNA followed by specific deamination.
