I am thinking why hydrogen sulfide has its effects in the body. For instance, it is one Salmonella's virulence factor. I am not sure if such a balance equations holds
H2O + H2S <=> ...
Actually, I miss here some factors because I am not understanding the biochemistry enough to answer this. I think H2S can exists in some sort of ionic form. Hydrogen sulfide reminds me of ammonia. I think it inhibits some systems. By which mechanisms?
It is mentioned in many places the empirical effects: signalling functions similar to NO and CO. But I am interested in how this happens. What is the rate of adhesion of H2S to hemoglobin for instance?
H2S can change to sulfite and thiosulfate in mitochondria which are then excreted into urine. I think most of the biological effects are done before these forms. But in which forms?
