Neuronal NOS (nNOS) is a constitutively expressed enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of L-arginine and water to L-citrulline and the gas nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is involved in regulation of a variety of processes, including: vascular tone, neurotransmission, and ion balance in mammals and fishes. In this study, we have cloned and characterized a putative NOS homologue from the brain of the euryhaline killifish, Fundulus heteroclitus. Killifish NOS has 75% amino acid identity to human… CONTINUE READING
