Scientific Background:Nitric oxide (NO) is a major mammalian secretory product that initiates host defense, homeostatic and developmental functions by either direct effect or intercellular signaling. NO is the product of a five-electron oxidation of the amino acid L-arginine mediated by nitric oxide synthase. As a direct effector, NO is thought to activate regulatory proteins, kinases and proteases that are directed by reactive oxygen intermediates. Activation of the immune system is associated with an increase in macrophage NO production. Soluble NO exerts a variety of homeostatic influences as an activator of soluble guanylyl cyclase, a neuronal potentiator, a peripheral nervous system neurotransmitter, and a contraction regulator of both smooth muscle and vascular tissue. In addition, NO has been linked to the formation of olfactory and synaptic memories and remodeling.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
