Gene Regulation of Catecholamine Biosynthetic Enzymes by Nitric Oxide in PC 12 Cells

Nitric oxide (NO) regulates a wide range of physiological processes. Recent studies show that NO can regulate the release of catecholamines (CA) from the adrenal medulla. In the current study, the PC12 cell line was used to examine the effect of NO on the regulation of the CA biosynthetic enzymes: tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine-β-hydroxylase (DBH) and… (More)
