Over a decade of research has shown nitric oxide (NO) to be a ubiquitous modulator of biological phenomena from cell signal to eVector and from physiology to pathophysiology. The involvement of NO in cardiovascular biology has contributed significantly to our understanding of complex disease states including atherosclerosis, systemic and pulmonary hypertension, endotoxic shock, pre-eclampsia, cardiomyopathy, and cardiac allograft rejection. However, the emerging role of NO in the maintenance of… CONTINUE READING
