Endothelial dysfunction reflects reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability due to either reduced production, inactivation of NO, or reduced smooth muscle responsiveness. Oral methionine loading causes acute endothelial dysfunction in healthy subjects and provides a model in which to study mechanisms. Endothelial function was assessed using flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery in humans. Three markers of oxidative stress were measured ex vivo in venous blood. NO responsiveness was assessed in vascular smooth muscle and platelets. Oral methionine loading induced endothelial dysfunction (FMD decreased from 2.8 +/- 0.8 to 0.3 +/- 0.3% with methionine and from 2.8 +/- 0.8 to 1.3 +/- 0.3% with placebo; P
