Pattern of NOS2 and NOS3 mRNA expression in human A549 cells and primary cultured AEC II.

Abstract

The human alveolar type II epithelium-like cell line A549 expresses nitric oxide synthase type 2 (NOS2), but not NOS3, and produces nitric oxide (NO) upon appropriate stimulation. However, relatively little is known regarding the NOS2 and NOS3 expression of type II human alveolar epithelial cells (AEC II) in primary culture. We detected NOS3 mRNA in freshly… (More)
