Target Specific Cancer Treatment with Carbon Monoxide Releasing Molecules

Yusuf Tutar1

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas which has been defined as “silent killer” for a long time. CO has strong affinity for hemoglobin, and CO-hemoglobin (carboxyhemoglobin) complex inhibits oxygen delivery to tissues by red blood cells [1]. Apart from this poisoner effect, the therapeutic potential of CO has been extensively evaluated in pathogenesis of many diseases. CO is naturally produced by heme oxygenase 1 and 2 (HO-1 and HO-2) activity in tissues.
