Nitric oxide (NO) production plays an important role in regulating preimplantation embryo development. NO is produced from l-arginine by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS), which has three isoforms: endothelial (eNOS), neuronal (nNOS), and inducible (iNOS). It has been previously shown that inhibition of NO production by NG-nitro-l-arginine (l-NA) inhibits the development of two-cell embryos to the four-cell stage. However, excess NO also halts embryo development, possibly through the… CONTINUE READING
