The complex role of nitric oxide in the regulation of glomerular ultrafiltration. Nitric oxide is an important neurohumoral modulator of glomerular ultrafiltration and renal hemodynamics. Multiple nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms are present within the kidney. However, it is difficult to discern which NOS is most active from prior studies using non-selective NOS blockers. It is recently apparent that NOS activity is important to the activity of tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) systems… CONTINUE READING
