Nitric oxide (NO) derived from the endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) contributes to regulation of cerebral circulation, whereas that produced by neuronal NOS (nNOS) participates in the regulation of brain function. In particular, NO plays an important role in modulation of sympathetic activity and hence central regulation of arterial pressure. Superoxide derived from NAD(P)H oxidase avidly reacts with and inactivates NO and, thereby, modulates its bioavailability. Calmodulin (CM) is required for… CONTINUE READING
