Title
Modulation of nitric oxide synthase in macrohages
Author
Abstract
L-ARGININE is converted to the highly reactive and unstable nitric oxide (NO) and L-citrulline by an enzyme named nitric oxide synthase (NOS). NO decomposes into other nitrogen oxides such as nitrite (NO2-) and nitrate (NO3-), and in the presence of superoxide anion to the potent oxidizing agent peroxynitrite (ONOO-). Activated rodent macrophages are capable of expressing an inducible form of this enzyme (iNOS) in response to appropriate stimuli, i.e., lipopolysaccharide
