Abstract Migraine is a common neurological disorder characterized by recurrent attacks, unilateral head pain, and related symptoms. The aim of this study was to investigate three endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) polymorphisms in 176 patients with migraine and 123 healthy individuals. Clinical and biochemical parameters were investigated. Genetic analysis was performed using the polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism method. The differences between migraine… 

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase (−786T>C) polymorphism and migraine susceptibility

This meta-analysis indicated that CC variant increases the risk for migraine compared with TT + TC genotypes in Caucasian populations.

Association between endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS3) rs2070744 and the risk for migraine

The frequencies of NOS3 rs2070744 genotypes and allelic variants were not associated with the risk for migraine and were not influenced by age at onset of migraine, gender, presence of aura, or triggering of migraine attacks by ethanol.

The Polymorphism of Regulatory Region of NOS3 Gene (rs2070744, Genotype CC) Protect Patients from Chronic Migraine

Genotype CC of SNP rs2070744 in the regulatory region of NOS3 gene is more specific for episodic migraine and may prevents the chronification of migraine.

The Relationship Between Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Gene (NOS3) Polymorphisms, NOS3 Expression, and Varicocele.

This study aimed to explain the relationship between varicocele, three common NOS3 polymorphisms (T-786C, G894T, 4b/a), and NOS2 mRNA expression levels and demonstrated significantly elevated levels in both allele and genotype analysis in the control group compared to the patient group.

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphism (786T/C) in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivors.

Carotid and brachial arteries intima media thickness measurements were higher in the survivors when compared to healthy controls, suggesting eNOS gene polymorphism may play a role in modifying or developing CVD in pediatric ALL survivors.

Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) –308G>A, Nitric Oxide Synthase 3 (NOS3) +894G>T Polymorphisms and Migraine Risk: A Meta-Analysis

The hypothesis that the TNF –308G>A polymorphism may act as a genetic susceptibility factor for migraine among non-Caucasians and that the NOS3 +894G>T polymorphisms may modulate the risk of migraine amongNon-C Caucasianians is supported.

Effects of rs 1799983 and rs 1800779 polymorphisms in the endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene on migraine susceptibility with and without aura : a meta-analysis

The current meta-analysis suggested that the rs1799983 polymorphism in eNOS is associated with MA susceptibility, and further studies with larger sample sizes are needed to evaluate these associations in patients of different ethnicities.

Role of Polymorphisms of Inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase and Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase in Idiopathic Environmental Intolerances

It is demonstrated that NOS3 −786T>C variant affects nitrite/nitrate levels in IEI patients and that screening for NOS2A −2.5 kb (CCTTT)n polymorphism may be useful for differential diagnosis of various IEI.

The Role of Single-Nucleotide Variants of NOS1, NOS2, and NOS3 Genes in the Comorbidity of Arterial Hypertension and Tension-Type Headache

In this review, this work summed up the single nucleotide variants (SNVs) of Nitric Oxide Synthases (NOSs) genes involved in the development of essential AH and TTH genes using keywords and combined word searches over the past 15 years.



Endothelial nitric oxide synthase haplotypes associated with aura in patients with migraine.

It is suggested that these two eNOS haplotypes affect the susceptibility to the presence of aura in patients with migraine.

Association between migraine and endothelin type A receptor (ETA −231 A/G) gene polymorphism

A variant of the ETA receptor gene modulates the risk for migraine and was stronger in participants with a family history of severe headaches than in those without, offering new insights into the pathophysiology of the vascular component of migraine.

Interaction among nitric oxide (NO)-related genes in migraine susceptibility

A significant interaction is found between eNOS rs743506 and iNOS2087G/A polymorphisms in migraine patients compared to control group (P < 0.05), suggesting that this combination affect the susceptibility to migraine.

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase haplotypes associated with hypertension do not predispose to cardiac hypertrophy.

It is suggested that eNOS haplotypes that have been associated with variable susceptibility to hypertension were not associated with LVH in hypertensive patients, even after adjustment in multiple linear regression analysis.

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene haplotypes affect nitrite levels in black subjects

Although no effects of individual eNOS polymorphisms are found, it is found that the ‘C-4b-Glu’ haplotype is significantly more common in subjects with low circulating plasma and whole blood nitrites compared with subjects with high circulating nitrite concentrations.

eNOS haplotypes associated with gestational hypertension or preeclampsia.

A contribution of eNOS haplotypes to the development of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy that is obscured when specific eNos genotypes alone are considered is suggested.

Vascular endothelial growth factor genetic polymorphisms and haplotypes in women with migraine.

Findings suggest that VEGF haplotypes affect susceptibility to migraine, and three functional polymorphisms in the promoter region of V EGF gene are associated with migraine.

Effects of eNOS polymorphisms on nitric oxide formation in healthy pregnancy and in pre-eclampsia.

It is indicated that eNOS polymorphisms affect endogenous NO formation in normal pregnancy, but not in PE, and that the 'C Glu b' haplotype may protect against the development of PE by increasing endogenous NO Formation.

Increased nitric oxide stress is associated with migraine

It is shown that migraine patients suffer under sustained increased nitrosative stress in the headache-free period, which is associated with a 3.6-fold higher risk for migraine.
