Cyclic GMP metabolism and its role in brain physiology.

Abstract

Cyclic GMP (cGMP) is synthesized by guanylyl cyclase (GC) in response to nitric oxide (NO) and carbon monoxide (CO) or natiuretic peptides (NPs); atrial, brain and C-type (ANP, BNP and CNP). cGMP is degraded by several cGMP-specific phosphodiesterases (PDEs). Guanylate cyclases (GC) are differentiated into: membrane-bound/particulate (pGC) and cytosolic… (More)
