The free radical gas, nitric oxide is now known to be an important biological messenger in animals. Signal transmission by a gas that is produced by one cell, penetrates through membranes and regulates the function of another cell, represents new principles for signalling in biological systems. Nitric oxide is synthesised from L-arginine by enzyme nitric oxide synthase, which exists in multiple isoforms in a wide range of mammalian cells. Studies conducted in recent years point at a strong… CONTINUE READING
