In the past five years, skeletal muscle has emerged as a paradigm of "nitric oxide" (NO) function and redox-related signaling in biology. All major nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms, including a muscle-specific splice variant of neuronal-type (n) NOS, are expressed in skeletal muscles of all mammals. Expression and localization of NOS isoforms are dependent on age and developmental stage, innervation and activity, history of exposure to cytokines and growth factors, and muscle fiber type and… Expand
Nitric oxide: biologic effects on muscle and role in muscle diseases
TLDR
Although nitric oxide impacts on many functions in muscle, its effects are subtle, and much work remains to be done to determine its importance in the pathogenesis of muscle diseases. Expand
Nitric Oxide in Skeletal Muscle: Role on Mitochondrial Biogenesis and Function
TLDR
New insights on NO roles on mitochondrial biogenesis and function in skeletal muscle are discussed and potential therapeutic strategies based on NO precursors or analogs to treat patients with myopathies and mitochondrial deficiency are focused on. Expand
ENZYMATIC REGULATION OF SKELETAL MUSCLE OXYGEN TRANSPORT: NOVEL ROLES FOR NEURONAL NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE
Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized via distinct NO synthase (NOS) enzymes and constitutes an essential cardiovascular signaling molecule. Whereas important vasomotor contributions of endothelial NOSExpand
Nitric Oxide in Myogenesis and Therapeutic Muscle Repair
TLDR
The mechanisms and functions of nitric oxide in skeletal muscle are reviewed and its role in myogenesis is discussed, with specific attention to the promisingNitric oxide-based approaches now being explored at the pre-clinical and clinical level for the therapy of muscular dystrophy. Expand

TLDR
A fundamental role for the concerted action of NO and O2 in physiological regulation of skeletal muscle contractility is revealed, and novel molecular aspects of myopathic disease are suggested. Expand
Nitric oxide synthase in human skeletal muscles related to defined fibre types
TLDR
A correlation of NOS I–III immunoreactivity to metabolic defined fibre types with strong expression in FOG fibres implies that NO as modulator of muscle function is involved in oxidative metabolism in connection with fast force development, which only occurs in Fog fibres. Expand
Skeletal Muscle Function during Exercise—Fine-Tuning of Diverse Subsystems by Nitric Oxide
TLDR
To gain a more detailed understanding of the complex role of NO signaling for functional adaptation of skeletal muscle (during exercise), additional sophisticated studies are needed to provide deeper insights into NO-mediated signaling and the role of non-enzymatic-derived NO in skeletal muscle physiology. Expand
Downstream mechanisms of nitric oxide-mediated skeletal muscle glucose uptake during contraction.
TLDR
Evidence is provided to suggest that NOS-derived oxidants regulate skeletal muscle glucose uptake during ex vivo contractions via a cGMP/PKG-, AMPK-, and p38 MAPK-independent pathway. Expand
Skeletal muscle as an endogenous nitrate reservoir.
TLDR
It is suggested that skeletal muscle participates in overall NO metabolism, serving as a nitrate reservoir, for direct formation of nitrite and NO, and for determining levels of nitrate in other organs. Expand
Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Expression in the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum of Mouse Skeletal Muscle
Nitric oxide (NO), produced by nitric oxide synthases (NOSs), is involved in many of the physiological properties in cells. So far, it is unclear whether endothelial NOS (eNOS) is expressed inExpand

TLDR
Research published over the past few years makes it clear that skeletal muscle produces NO and that endogenous NO modulates muscle function, and much remains to be learned about the physiological importance of NO actions and about their underlying mechanisms. Expand
Expression of Nitric Oxide Synthase in Skeletal Muscle: A Novel Role for Nitric Oxide as a Modulator of Insulin Action
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that NO modulates insulin action in both slow- and fast-type skeletal muscles, and this novel autocrine action of NO in muscle appears to be mediated by cGMP-independent pathways. Expand
Regulation of nitric oxide production in response to skeletal muscle activation.
TLDR
It is proposed that a contraction-induced decline in muscle NOS activity represents a compensatory mechanism through which muscle contractility and mitochondrial function are protected from the inhibitory influence of NO. Expand
Nitric oxide in skeletal muscle
TLDR
It is shown that rat skeletal muscle expresses neuronal-type NO synthase and that activity varies among several respiratory and limb muscles, and that two physiological functions of NO in skeletal muscle are supported. Expand
Neuronal Nitric-oxide Synthase-, an Alternatively Spliced Isoform Expressed in Differentiated Skeletal Muscle (*)
TLDR
It is shown that alternative splicing specifically regulates neuronal NOS (nNOS, type I) in striated muscle and reports the first additional protein sequence for a mammalian NOS since the original cloning of the gene family. Expand
Expression and regulation of protein inhibitor of neuronal nitric oxide synthase in ventilatory muscles.
TLDR
The distribution, localization, and regulation of PIN expression in ventilatory and limb muscles of various species are investigated and it is concluded that PIN is expressed in various skeletal muscle fibers and that its expression is regulated during muscle development. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that constitutive NOS isoforms are developmentally regulated in skeletal muscles, suggesting multiple roles for NO in developing and mature skeletal-muscle fibers. Expand
Nitric oxide synthase and cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinase concentrated at the neuromuscular endplate
TLDR
Interestingly, the highest levels of neuronal type nitric oxide synthase-mu in muscle are found complexed with dystrophin at the sarcolemma of intrafusal fibers in muscle spindles, which suggests functions forNitric oxide and cyclic GMP in the regulation of synaptic actions of intra- and extrafusal muscle fibers.

Inducible nitric oxide synthase in skeletal muscle of patients with chronic heart failure.
TLDR
Given the experimental evidence that NO can attenuate contractile performance of skeletal muscle and can mediate muscle wasting, an increased local production of NO in skeletal muscle by NOS II may have important implications for patients with severe heart failure. Expand
Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) I during postnatal development in rat and mouse skeletal muscle.
TLDR
In type II fibers of rat and mouse skeletal muscle all molecules with the exception of NMDAR-1 and relevant for NOS I targeting and positioning as well as function inside and outside the NMJ are already present at birth, but their concentrations and/or activities increase postnatally, and the adult situation appears to be reached between the third and seventh week of postnatal life.
