Inhibition of nitric oxide synthase isoforms by porphyrins.


Protoporphyrin IX inhibits citrulline formation by all three nitric oxide synthase isoforms in a manner reversible by dilution. Zinc protoporphyrin IX, by contrast, produces a time- and concentration-dependent inactivation of all three nitric oxide synthase isoforms, not reversible by dilution. The inhibition of citrulline formation by protoporphyrin IX… (More)
