The peptide hormone relaxin (RLX) has been shown to exert a variety of functions in both reproductive and non-reproductive tissues. The molecular mechanism of RLX on its target cells appears to involve multiple intracellular signalling systems, including the nitric oxide (NO) pathway. NO is an ubiquitous molecule synthesised from L-arginine under the catalytic action of different nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms and its altered production has been reported to be involved in several diseases… CONTINUE READING
