Nitric oxide (NO), the key mediator synthesized by different NO synthase isoenzymes, plays an important role in endothelial function. It was recently shown that hyperhomocysteinemia is an important regulator of NO synthase. We investigated the role of homocysteine (Hcys) in erectile dysfunction (ED), which is associated with the defect in NO generation.(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE Increasing levels of homocysteine (Hcys) are related to decreased nitric oxide synthesis in the vascular endothelium and also to erectile dysfunction (ED). We investigated the traditional risk factors of ED and plasma levels of Hcys in diabetic patients. METHODS Sixty-two men with type 2 diabetes and ages of between 40 and 70(More)
