Recently, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has been identified as a potential therapy for ED. However, a thorough understanding of its molecular mechanisms of action would be essential to develop H2S as a new therapy for ED. In this study, the effect of H2S on nitric oxide (NO) production, especially through the expression of constitutive nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms—endothelial NOS (eNOS) and neuronal NOS (nNOS) in rat corpus cavernosum (CC) were explored. Real-time PCR studies subsequent to in… Expand
Resveratrol Stimulates Hydrogen Sulfide (H2 S) Formation to Relax Murine Corpus Cavernosum.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that RVT-induced relaxation is at least partly dependent on H2 S formation and acts independent of eNOS pathway and in phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor (PDE-5i) nonresponder population, combination therapy with RVT may reverse erectile dysfunction via stimulating endogenous H 2 S formation.

TLDR
H2S emerges an essential endogenous enhancer of vascular NO signaling, contributing to vasorelaxation and angiogenesis and prolonging the biological half-life of cGMP. Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide Preserves Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Function by Inhibiting Proline-Rich Kinase 2: Implications for Cardiomyocyte Survival and Cardioprotection
TLDR
It is concluded that H2S relieves the inhibitory effect of PYK2 on eNOS, allowing the latter to produce greater amounts of NO, thereby affording cardioprotection. Expand
Gaseous Mediators Nitric Oxide and Hydrogen Sulfide in the Mechanism of Gastrointestinal Integrity, Protection and Ulcer Healing
TLDR
The aim of this review is to compare current results of the studies concerning the role of H2S and NO in gastric mucosa protection and outline areas that may pose new opportunities for further development of novel therapeutic targets. Expand
Cavernosal hydrogen sulfide levels are associated with nitric oxide and hemeoxygenase levels in diabetic rats
TLDR
It could be concluded that cavernous tissues H2S plays a role of male sexual health by affecting cavernous tissue NO and HO enzyme activity in general and in diabetics in particular. Expand
The Relaxant Mechanisms of Hydrogen Sulfide in Corpus Cavernosum.
TLDR
In this chapter, in vitro experimental procedure for mice corpus cavernosum which used to investigate the relaxant effect of H2S is given in detail and data available in the current relevant literature is discussed. Expand
Hydrogen Sulfide and Urogenital Tract.
TLDR
The H2S pathway is not only involved in penile erection but also plays a role in bladder homeostasis and the finding that it involved in the mechanism of action of PDE-5 inhibitors strongly suggests that modulation of this pathway can represent a therapeutic target for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and bladder diseases.

The stimulatory effects of eNOS/F92A-Cav1 on NO production and angiogenesis in BMSCs.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic modification of BMSCs to enhance NO producton could be applied in stem cell based therapeutic approaches to treat diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) which is characterized by decreased endothelial NO release. Expand
Effects of hydrogen sulphide donor, sodium hydrosulphide treatment on the erectile dysfunction in L‐NAME‐induced hypertensive rats
TLDR
NaHS promoted the recovery of erectile responses in hypertensive rats by improvement of neuronal function and downregulation of fibrosis and NF‐κB signalling. Expand
The role of hydrogen sulfide in cyclic nucleotide signaling
TLDR
A detailed portrayal of H2S mediated interaction with target proteins is still required for a better understanding of the role of this important gaseous mediator in regulating cyclic nucleotide signaling. Expand

TLDR
More extensive and mechanistic studies in the future will help to determine whether H(2)S is a new EDRF or the very EDHF. Expand
Hydrogen sulfide as a mediator of human corpus cavernosum smooth-muscle relaxation
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the l-Cys/H2S pathway mediates human corpus cavernosum smooth-muscle relaxation and promotes penile erection in rats. Expand
The vasorelaxant effect of H2S as a novel endogenous gaseous KATP channel opener
TLDR
It is demonstrated that H2S is an important endogenous vasoactive factor and the first identified gaseous opener of KATP channels in vascular SMCs and production from vascular tissues was enhanced by nitric oxide. Expand
The novel proangiogenic effect of hydrogen sulfide is dependent on Akt phosphorylation.
TLDR
A novel proangiogenic role of H(2)S which is dependent on activation of Akt is reported which is able to promote angiogenesis in vivo in mice. Expand
Caveolin versus Calmodulin
TLDR
It is established that caveolin, via its scaffolding domain, directly forms an inhibitory complex with eNOS and suggest that Caveolin inhibits eNos by abrogating the enzyme’s activation by calmodulin. Expand
Hydrogen sulphide: a novel endogenous gasotransmitter facilitates erectile function.
TLDR
These pioneering studies provide evidence for the endogenous formation of H2S and its proerectile relaxant effect on the cavernosum, with the possibility of involvement of the cyclic adenosine monophosphate pathway. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that H2S is physiologically generated by cystathionine γ-lyase (CSE) and that genetic deletion of this enzyme in mice markedly reduces H 2S levels in the serum, heart, aorta, and other tissues. Expand

Investigation of the role of exogenous and endogenous hydrogen sulfide on neovascularization and wound healing in vitro and in vivo concludes that endogenous and exogenous H2S stimulates EC-related angiogenic properties through a KATP channel/MAPK pathway. Expand

TLDR
The effects of H(2)S on the inflammatory process are complex and dependent not only on H(1beta, IL-6, NO, PGE(2), and TNF-alpha but also on the rate of H2S generation, which may explain some of the apparent discrepancies in the literature regarding the pro- versus antiinflammatory role of the molecule.
