Endogenous sulfur dioxide (SO2) used to be perceived as a notorious, toxic pollutant of the atmosphere. However, recently several studies revealed that in vivo generated mainly from sulfur-containing amino acids, SO2 serves as an essential novel gasotransmitter involved in the regulation of extensive biological activities. Several studies indicate that endogenous SO2 protects against inflammation by inhibiting the production of inflammatory mediators via different molecular pathways. The present review, therefore, summarized the anti-inflammatory effect of endogenous SO2 and its molecular mechanisms.
