Effects of endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene expression on the tumor biology of human oral carcinoma SCC-25 cells.

Stable transfection of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) cDNA in human oral carcinoma SCC-25 cells was performed. Two eNOS-expressing clones were isolated, and both were shown to have increased eNOS expression as assayed by Northern and Western analyses. Furthermore, a nitrite assay indicated that nitric oxide production in eNOS-transfected cells was… (More)
