Determination of nitric oxide synthase activity in rat, pig and rabbit prostate glands.

The conversion of L-arginine to L-citrulline by nitric oxide synthase and other enzymes was studied in rat, pig and rabbit prostate glands by incubating preparations of the glands with [3H]L-arginine and measuring [3H]L-citrulline formation. The nitric oxide synthase inhibitor N(G)-nitro-L-arginine, (100 microM) reduced [3H]L-citrulline production in… CONTINUE READING
