Nitric oxide (NO) is an important biological molecule that participates in a wide range of responses, including vasodilation, platelet regulation, neurotransmission, and cytoxicity (1). NO’s most widely known and best understood mechanism of action is through its interaction with the heme group in proteins such as soluble guanylate cyclase (1). In addition… CONTINUE READING
