Analysis of nitric oxide-dependent antimicrobial actions in macrophages and mice.

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO*) is a critical component of mammalian host defense that is produced in macrophages and other cells comprising the innate immune system. Isolated mammalian macrophages have been utilized to measure the kinetics of NO production and to demonstrate NO-related antimicrobial actions. Some microorganisms possess enzymes to detoxify nitrogen… (More)
