Sulfenates From Benzyl Derivatives

Calcium pumps in each cell may have the capacity to remove this ion from the stabilized, sulfenate-linked benzyl derivative of vitalethine, causing this complex to rearrange and generate sulfenic acids without first being reduced to vitaletheine and then being oxidized to a sulfenate in monooxygenase-catalyzed reactions. Consequently, derivatives of this sort have theoretical advantages over the disulfide, vitalethine, when the monooxygenase system is deficient, inhibited, or otherwise compromised.
