BACKGROUND Oxidative damage of vascular endothelium represents an important initiation step in the development of atherosclerosis. Recently, we reported about protection of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS)-derived high-output NO in endothelial cells. Because iNOS activity critically depends on the availability of its substrate l-arginine, the present(More)
In endothelial cells, the expression of the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and the resulting high-output nitric oxide synthesis have often been assumed as detrimental to endothelial function, but recent publications have demonstrated a protective role resulting from iNOS espression and activity. To address this question, we used antisense-mediated(More)
