The molecular mechanisms of the effects of sildenafil, a specific inhibitor of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) phosphodiesterases are briefly reviewed. The second messenger cGMP as well as its molecular targets (with the exception of the photoreceptor signal transduction machinery) have long played an underdog role compared with cyclic adenosine monophosphate and other signalling molecules such as inositoltrisphosphate. The same holds for guanylyl cyclase, which, albeit being the main… CONTINUE READING
