Nitric oxide stimulates the stress-activated protein kinase p38 in rat renal mesangial cells. (1/20782)

Nitric oxide (NO) has gained increased attention as a diffusible universal messenger that plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Recently, we reported that exogenous NO is able to activate the stress-activated protein kinase (SAPK) cascade in mesangial cells. Here, we demonstrate that exposure of glomerular mesangial cells to compounds releasing NO, including spermine-NO and (Z)-1- (N-methyl-N-[6-(N-methylammoniohexyl)amino]diazen)-1-ium-1,2-diolate (MAHMA-NO), results in an activation of the stress-activated p38-mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38-MAPK) cascade as measured by the phosphorylation of the activator of transcription factor-2 (ATF2) in an immunocomplex kinase assay. Activation of the p38-MAPK cascade by a short stimulation (10 min) with the NO donor MAHMA-NO causes a large increase in ATF2 phosphorylation that is several times greater than that observed after stimulation with interleukin-1beta, a well-known activator of the p38-MAPK pathway. Time course studies reveal that MAHMA-NO causes rapid and maximal activation of p38-MAPK after 10 min of stimulation and that activation declines to basal levels within 60 min. The longer-lived NO donor spermine-NO causes a comparable rapid activation of the p38-MAPK pathway; however, the increased activation state of p38-MAPK was maintained for several hours before control values were reattained after 24 h of stimulation. Furthermore, the NO donors also activated the classical extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) p44-MAPK cascade as shown by phosphorylation of the specific substrate cytosolic phospholipase A2 in an immunocomplex kinase reaction. Both MAHMA-NO and spermine-NO cause a rapid activation of p44-MAPK after 10 min of stimulation. Interestingly, there is a second delayed peak of p44-MAPK activation after 4-24 h of stimulation with NO donors. These results suggest that there is a differential activation pattern for stress-activated and mitogen-activated protein kinases by NO and that the integration of these signals may lead to specific cell responses.  (+info)

Relaxin is a potent renal vasodilator in conscious rats. (2/20782)

The kidneys and other nonreproductive organs vasodilate during early gestation; however, the "pregnancy hormones" responsible for the profound vasodilation of the renal circulation during pregnancy are unknown. We hypothesized that the ovarian hormone relaxin (RLX) contributes. Therefore, we tested whether the administration of RLX elicits renal vasodilation and hyperfiltration in conscious adult, intact female rats. After several days of treatment with either purified porcine RLX or recombinant human RLX 2 (rhRLX), effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) increased by 20%-40%. Comparable renal vasodilation and hyperfiltration was also observed in ovariectomized rats, suggesting that estrogen and progesterone are unnecessary for the renal response to rhRLX. The nitric oxide synthase inhibitor Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester completely abrogated the increase in ERPF and GFR elicited by chronic administration of purified porcine RLX. In contrast, the renal vasoconstrictory response to angiotensin II was attenuated by the RLX treatment. Short-term infusion of purified porcine RLX to conscious rats over several hours failed to increase ERPF and GFR. Plasma osmolality was consistently reduced by the chronic administration of both RLX preparations. In conclusion, the renal and osmoregulatory effects of chronic RLX administration to conscious rats resemble the physiological changes of pregnancy in several respects: (a) marked increases in ERPF and GFR with a mediatory role for nitric oxide; (b) attenuation of the renal circulatory response to angiotensin II; and (c) reduction in plasma osmolality.  (+info)

An antiviral mechanism of nitric oxide: inhibition of a viral protease. (3/20782)

Although nitric oxide (NO) kills or inhibits the replication of a variety of intracellular pathogens, the antimicrobial mechanisms of NO are unknown. Here, we identify a viral protease as a target of NO. The life cycle of many viruses depends upon viral proteases that cleave viral polyproteins into individual polypeptides. NO inactivates the Coxsackievirus protease 3C, an enzyme necessary for the replication of Coxsackievirus. NO S-nitrosylates the cysteine residue in the active site of protease 3C, inhibiting protease activity and interrupting the viral life cycle. Substituting a serine residue for the active site cysteine renders protease 3C resistant to NO inhibition. Since cysteine proteases are critical for virulence or replication of many viruses, bacteria, and parasites, S-nitrosylation of pathogen cysteine proteases may be a general mechanism of antimicrobial host defenses.  (+info)

Evidence for a vasopressin system in the rat heart. (4/20782)

Traditionally, a hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system is thought to be the exclusive source of arginine vasopressin (AVP), a potent antidiuretic, vasoconstricting, and growth-stimulating neuropeptide. We have identified de novo synthesis of AVP in the heart as well as release of the hormone into the cardiac effluents. Specifically, molecular cloning of sequence tags amplified from isolated, buffer-perfused, and pressure-overloaded rat hearts allowed the detection of cardiac AVP mRNA. Subsequent experiments revealed a prominent induction of AVP mRNA (peak at 120 minutes, 59-fold, P<0. 01 versus baseline) and peptide (peak at 120 minutes, 11-fold, P<0. 01 versus baseline) in these isolated hearts. Newly induced vasopressin peptide was localized most prominently to endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cells of arterioles and perivascular tissue using immunohistochemistry. In addition to pressure overload, nitric oxide (NO) participated in these alterations, because inhibition of NO synthase by Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester markedly depressed cardiac AVP mRNA and peptide induction. Immediate cardiac effects related to cardiac AVP induction in isolated, perfused, pressure-overloaded hearts appeared to be coronary vasoconstriction and impaired relaxation. These functional changes were observed in parallel with AVP induction and largely prevented by addition of a V1 receptor blocker (10(-8) mol/L [deamino-Pen1, O-Me-Tyr2, Arg8]-vasopressin) to the perfusion buffer. Even more interesting, pressure-overloaded, isolated hearts released the peptide into the coronary effluents, offering the potential for systemic actions of AVP from cardiac origin. We conclude that the heart, stressed by acute pressure overload or NO, expresses vasopressin in concentrations sufficient to cause local and potentially systemic effects.  (+info)

Role of nitric oxide-cGMP pathway in adrenomedullin-induced vasodilation in the rat. (5/20782)

We previously reported that adrenomedullin (AM), a potent vasodilator peptide discovered in pheochromocytoma cells, stimulates nitric oxide (NO) release in the rat kidney. To further investigate whether the NO-cGMP pathway is involved in the mechanisms of AM-induced vasodilation, we examined the effects of E-4021, a cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase inhibitor, on AM-induced vasorelaxation in aortic rings and perfused kidneys isolated from Wistar rats. We also measured NO release from the kidneys using a chemiluminescence assay. AM (10(-10) to 10(-7) mol/L) relaxed the aorta precontracted with phenylephrine in a dose-dependent manner. Denudation of endothelium (E) attenuated the vasodilatory action of AM (10(-7) mol/L AM: intact (E+) -25.7+/-5.2% versus denuded (E-) -7. 8+/-0.6%, P<0.05). On the other hand, pretreatment with 10(-8) mol/L E-4021 augmented AM-induced vasorelaxation in the intact aorta (-49. 0+/-7.9%, P<0.05) but not in the denuded one. E-4021 also enhanced acetylcholine (ACh)-induced vasorelaxation in the rat intact aorta (10(-7) mol/L ACh -36.6+/-8.4% versus 10(-8) mol/L E-4021+10(-7) mol/L ACh -62.7+/-3.1%, P<0.05). In perfused kidneys, AM-induced vasorelaxation was also augmented by preincubation with E-4021 (10(-9) mol/L AM -15.4+/-0.6% versus 10(-8) mol/L E-4021+10(-9) mol/L AM -23.6+/-1.2%, P<0.01). AM significantly increased NO release from rat kidneys (DeltaNO: +11.3+/-0.8 fmol. min-1. g-1 kidney at 10(-9) mol/L AM), which was not affected by E-4021. E-4021 enhanced ACh-induced vasorelaxation (10(-9) mol/L ACh -9.7+/-1.7% versus 10(-8) mol/L E-4021+10(-9) mol/L ACh -18.8+/-2.9%, P<0.01) but did not affect ACh-induced NO release from the kidneys. In the aorta and the kidney, 10(-4) mol/L of NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, an NO synthase inhibitor, and 10(-5) mol/L of methylene blue, a guanylate cyclase inhibitor, reduced the vasodilatory effect of AM. These results suggest that the NO-cGMP pathway is involved in the mechanism of AM-induced vasorelaxation, at least in the rat aorta and kidney.  (+info)

Overexpression of CuZn superoxide dismutase protects RAW 264.7 macrophages against nitric oxide cytotoxicity. (6/20782)

Initiation of nitric oxide (NO.)-mediated apoptotic cell death in RAW 264.7 macrophages is associated with up-regulation of mitochondrial manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD; SOD2) and down-regulation of cytosolic copper zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD; SOD1) at their individual mRNA and protein levels. To evaluate the decreased CuZnSOD expression and the initiation of apoptosis we stably transfected macrophages to overexpress human CuZnSOD. Individual clones revealed a 2-fold increase in CuZnSOD activity. Expression of a functional and thus protective CuZnSOD was verified by attenuated superoxide (O2(.)-)-mediated apoptotic as well as necrotic cell death. In this study we showed that SOD-overexpressing macrophages (R-SOD1-12) were also protected against NO.-initiated programmed cell death. Protection was substantial towards NO. derived from exogenously added NO donors or when NO. was generated by inducible NO synthase activation, and was evident at the level of p53 accumulation, caspase activation and DNA fragmentation. Stimulation of parent and SOD-overexpressing cells with a combination of lipopolysaccharide and murine interferon gamma produced equivalent amounts of nitrite/nitrate, which ruled out attenuated inducible NO. synthase activity during protection. Because protection by a O2(.)--scavenging system during NO. -intoxication implies a role of NO. and O2(.)- in the progression of cell damage, we used uric acid to delineate the role of peroxynitrite during NO.-elicited apoptosis. The peroxynitrite scavenger uric acid left S-nitrosoglutathione or spermine-NO-elicited apoptosis unaltered, blocking only 3-morpholinosydnonimine-mediated cell death. As a result we exclude peroxynitrite from contributing, to any major extent, to NO. -mediated apoptosis. Therefore protection observed with CuZnSOD overexpression is unlikely to stem from interference with peroxynitrite formation and/or action. Unequivocally, the down-regulation of CuZnSOD is associated with NO. cytotoxicity, whereas CuZnSOD overexpression protects macrophages from apoptosis.  (+info)

Differential regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor and its receptor fms-like-tyrosine kinase is mediated by nitric oxide in rat renal mesangial cells. (7/20782)

Under conditions associated with local and systemic inflammation, mesangial cells and invading immune cells are likely to be responsible for the release of large amounts of nitric oxide (NO) in the glomerulus. To further define the mechanisms of NO action in the glomerulus, we attempted to identify genes which are regulated by NO in rat glomerular mesangial cells. We identified vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor fms-like tyrosine kinase (FLT-1) to be under the regulatory control of exogenously applied NO in these cells. Using S-nitroso-glutathione (GSNO) as an NO-donating agent, VEGF expression was strongly induced, whereas expression of its FLT-1 receptor simultaneously decreased. Expressional regulation of VEGF and FLT-1 mRNA was transient and occurred rapidly within 1-3 h after GSNO treatment. Expression of a second VEGF-specific receptor, fetal liver kinase-1 (FLK-1/KDR), could not be detected. The inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1beta mediated a moderate increase in VEGF expression after 24 h and had no influence on FLT-1 expression. In contrast, platelet-derived growth factor-BB and basic fibroblast growth factor had no effect on VEGF expression, but strongly induced FLT-1 mRNA levels. Obviously, there is a differential regulation of VEGF and its receptor FLT-1 by NO, cytokines and growth factors in rat mesangial cells.  (+info)

Role of nitric oxide in lipopolysaccharide-induced hepatic injury in D-galactosamine-sensitized mice as an experimental endotoxic shock model. (8/20782)

The role of nitric oxide (NO) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced hepatic injury was studied in D-galactosamine (D-GalN)-sensitized mice. The inducible isoform of NO synthase (iNOS) was immunohistochemically detected on hepatocytes around blood vessels in livers of mice injected with D-GalN and LPS not on hepatocytes in mice injected with D-GalN or LPS alone, although mRNA for iNOS was found in those mice. Nitrotyrosine (NT) was also found in livers of mice injected with D-GalN and LPS. The localization of NT was consistent with that of iNOS, and the time courses of NT and iNOS expression were almost the same. Expression of iNOS and NT was detected exclusively in the hepatic lesions of mice injected with D-GalN and LPS. Anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha neutralizing antibody inhibited iNOS and NT expression and hepatic injury. The results suggested that NO from iNOS may play a role in LPS-induced hepatic injury on D-GalN-sensitized mice as an experimental endotoxic shock model.  (+info)

N2 - Background: Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized by neuronal and endothelial NO synthase (NOS), and has multiple functions in brain circuits and plasticity, neuroprotection and neurotoxicity, and behavior. We evaluated plasma levels of NO metabolite in patients with schizophrenia. Method: Plasma levels of NO metabolites, nitrite and nitrate, were measured in 45 male schizophrenics and 45 male normal controls. The severity of schizophrenia and response to treatment were assessed with the positive and negative syndrome scale. Plasma NO metabolite levels were estimated by Griess method in plasma samples. Results: Plasma levels of the NO metabolites were significantly lower in schizophrenics than in normal controls (t = 2.841, df= 88, p = 0.006). There were no significant correlations between plasma NO metabolites and PANSS scores in ...

N2 - Light induces various vascular tension changes, but these phenomena and their mechanisms remain controversial. We hypothesise that photocontraction results from the thermal effect, and that photorelaxation results from the non-thermal effect of photochemical nitric oxide generation. The isometric tension of a rat aortic ring was measured during laser light irradiation at various wavelengths with constant heat generation. Visible irradiation (458 nm, 514.5 nm) induced either photorelaxation (the tension increment was -20% of the contracted state induced by noradrenaline) or photocontraction (+7.8%); UV irradiation (351 nm) induced only photorelaxation (-41%), and near-IR irradiation (800 nm) produced only ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inducible nitric oxide synthase-derived superoxide contributes to hypereactivity in small mesenteric arteries from a rat model of chronic heart failure. AU - Miller, A A. AU - Megson, I L. AU - Gray, G A. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - The aims of this study were to (a) determine whether inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is expressed in small mesenteric arteries from rats with chronic heart failure (CHF), (b) investigate the functional significance of this potential source of nitric oxide (NO) on vascular responsiveness and (c) investigate the role that superoxide plays in modulating vascular function in these arteries. CHF was induced in male Wistar rats by coronary artery ligation (CAL). In sham-operated rats the ligature was not tied but pulled under the artery. Six weeks after surgery CAL rats had left ventricular (LV) infarctions and elevated LV end-diastolic pressures. Immunoreactive iNOS was found in endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells and in the adventitia of ...
Atherogenesis and restenosis are treated by long term administration of physiologically acceptable compounds which enhance the level of endogenous nitric oxide in the host. Alternatively, or in combination, other compounds may be administered which provide for short term enhancement of nitric oxide, either directly or by physiological processes. In addition, cells may be genetically engineered to provide a component in the synthetic pathway to nitric oxide, so as drive the process to enhance nitric oxide concentration, particularly in conjunction with the administration of a nitric oxide precursor.

AU - Dessy, Chantal. AU - Marbán, Eduardo. AU - Balligand, Jean Luc. AU - Sollott, Steven J.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001.

We found that stretching of myocytes modulates the elementary Ca2+ release process from ryanodine-receptor Ca2+-release channels (RyRCs), Ca2+ sparks and the electrically stimulated Ca2+ transient. Stretching induces Ptdlns-3-OH kinase (PI(3)K)-dependent phosphorylation of both Akt and the endothelial isoform of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), nitric oxide (NO) production, and a proportionate increase in Ca2+-spark frequency that is abolished by inhibiting NOS and PI(3)K. Exogenously generated NO reversibly increases Ca2+-spark frequency without cell ...
Nitric oxide plays an important role in erectile function. Several supplements, including L-citrulline, L-arginine, and French maritime pine bark extract, have been shown to increase nitric oxide levels in men with erectile dysfunction (ED).. A form of L-citrulline called citrulline malate not only increases nitric oxide production but also reduces muscle soreness.. Muscle soreness is an unpleasant experience that occurs after strenuous or unaccustomed exercise.. This muscle soreness is called delayed onset muscle soreness and is usually most intense 24 to 72 hours after exercise.. In one study, 41 people were randomly assigned to receive either 8 grams of citrulline malate or a placebo one hour before performing as many repetitions as possible while doing bench presses with a flat bar.. Those who received citrulline malate reported 40% less muscle soreness 24 and 48 hours after exercise compared to those who took the placebo.. Citrulline malate increases nitric oxide production, which increases ...
Nitric oxide is a significant biologic mediator in a number of physiologic processes. Clinical and laboratory studies in both human and animal models have uncovered a number of conditions responsive to nitric oxide therapy. The use of inhaled nitric oxide is rapidly expanding into neonatal and pediatric critical care. Presently, the primary clinical indication for nitric oxide is pulmonary hypertension of either a primary or secondary etiology. Some patient populations that are refractory to conventional management demonstrate significant improvement when receiving nitric oxide therapy. This article discusses the physiologic properties of nitric oxide, as well as its diagnostic and therapeutic indications. Specific issues regarding nitric oxide delivery, monitoring, safety standards, and nursing care are also addressed. ...
The letter by Drs Mair and Puschendorf gives us an opportunity to comment on the use of plasma and urinary nitrate and cGMP as indicators of in vivo nitric oxide formation.. Nitric oxide is formed in the vascular endothelium and in other tissues. One of its major targets is the soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC), which leads to the formation of cGMP. NO is rapidly inactivated through oxidation to nitrite and nitrate; under pathophysiologic conditions, oxidative inactivation may occur even before the sGC has been stimulated.R1 Both cGMP and nitrite/nitrate can be found in conditioned endothelial cell media, in plasma, and in urine. Because the chemical half-life of NO is in the range of seconds, NO itself can hardly be measured in vivo. Two main strategies have therefore been followed to assess NO activity in vivo. One is to determine NO-dependent vasodilation and the other is to measure the metabolites and/or second messenger of NO, nitrite/nitrate and cGMP, as biochemical surrogates for NO. ...

Tilarginine Acetate Injection is a new type of drug that temporarily stops the body from making a bodily substance called nitric oxide. The body may produce excess nitric oxide following severe heart damage leading to shock. During a heart attack, and especially after a blocked artery causing the heart attack is reopened, a large amount of nitric oxide is released into the heart muscle and into the blood. Normally small amounts of nitric oxide are good for the heart and blood vessels. However, when released in large amounts, such as during a heart attack, it may be harmful, by adding to the damage of the heart attack and lowering the hearts ability to pump blood to the body. It may cause blood pressure to be lowered and reduce the amount of blood flow to the bodys vital organs. This may interfere with the bodys organs being able to do their work. If Tilarginine Acetate Injection can stop extra nitric oxide from being made, the performance of the heart and blood flow to the organs may get ...
1. Nitric oxide can improve exercise recovery, endurance, and intensity. The number one reason why people take nitric oxide enhancing supplements is to improve their workout quality.. A number of studies have found that increasing nitric oxide can improve oxygen and nutrient delivery to the muscles, recovery from exercise, and tolerance to exercise intensity (8).. A 2008 study on postmenopausal women found that supplementing with l-arginine (a common nitric oxide boosting supplement) increased maximal force in mechanographic analyses and may prevent a decline of muscle force in postmenopausal women (9).. A study in the Chinese Journal of Physiology (2009) found that l-arginine supplementation led to an increase in glucose and insulin concentrations post workout (10).. Having elevated insulin levels can help improve muscle protein synthesis and therefore recovery from exercise.. The Journal of Applied Physiology looked into the effect of l-arginine on moderate and high-intensity exercise ...
Nitric oxide is produced by nearly every type of cell in the human body and is one of the most important molecules for cardiovascular health. It relaxes the inner muscles of your blood vessels, causing the vessels to widen. Supplements that relax artery walls are known as vasodilators. Vasodilators like nitric oxide increase blood flow and lower blood pressure. Today nitric oxide supplements make up one of the most popular supplement categories in cardiovascular health. However, these supplements dont contain nitric oxide itself. They contain compounds that your body can use to make nitric oxide. This has have been shown to provide many benefits for an individuals health and performance.. The two most common nitric oxide supplements on the market today are L-arginine and L-citrulline. Both of these are amino acids. If you remember from high school amino acids are the building blocks for life. Both l-arginine and l-citrulline are naturally found in red meat, dairy products, poultry, and fish. ...
There are all kinds of supplements out there that claim to build muscle faster, with nitric oxide supplements gaining a lot of attention in particular. Mens fitness magazines are touting nitric oxide supplements as the way to lift heavier and even to prevent erectile dysfunction, and while clinical results are proving that nitric oxide is beneficial, most of these supplements arent the safest on the market. Thankfully, there are far safer and natural ways to boost nitric oxide for a better workout, sex, and heart health.. A gas naturally made by the body to aid in neurotransmission, blood vessel dilation, reduction of blood pressure, and yes, keeping the family jewels in working order, nitric oxide does provide numerous benefits. Without sufficient nitric oxide, we can feel fatigued and worn down. It has the ability to expand blood vessels for better blood flow, which means more oxygen can reach the brain, heart, and other important organs. You can go the supplement route, or you can just ...
Acute injury or chronic circulation problems reduce perfusion, which in turn causes edema or swelling. This added accumulation of fluid pressurizes the nervous system thus causing pain. The swelling also exerts pressure on the capillaries tasked with the responsibility of providing oxygen to the nerves and tissues.. Nitric oxide boosts the arterial flow to the nerves as well as the venous drainage away from the nerves. This prevents any swelling from occurring because all the fluids are drained away from the injured or pressurized region.. According to medical research conducted over a decade ago, nitric oxide was shown to be the mediator of the analgesic effect of morphine and other opioids. The morphine burns to a receptor in the nerve cell and initiates a release of nitric oxide. This causes a diminution in pain which is mediated by cGMP. Therefore, raising the levels of nitric oxide can fight off pain.. The impact of nitric oxide as a reliever of pain is strongly felt in diabetic patients. ...
Enhanced nitric oxide production by macrophages and neutrophils is a critical defense mechanism against many forms of fungal and bacterial infection and tumorogenesis (16). However, the excessive production of nitric oxide by immune cells and nonimmune cells such as endothelial, epithelial, and smooth muscle cells can also lead to tissue damage, as demonstrated by the protective effects of NOS inhibitors in many inflammatory and autoimmune disease models (15). The role of nitric oxide in sepsis has been hotly contested, since pharmacological manipulation of nitric oxide synthesis in septic patients has been shown to be both deleterious and beneficial (11, 19, 23). The deleterious effects of NOS inhibition are related in part to the inability of NOS substrate inhibitors to discriminate between the constitutive and inducible isoforms of NOS, whereas the beneficial effects of these compounds have been attributed to the ability of NOS inhibitors to restore normal cardiovascular function in septic ...

The protective effect of female sex in renal ageing and cardiovascular function is widely accepted, but poorly understood. Previous evidence has suggested a role for the nitric oxide and renin-angiotensin systems, though the precise mechanisms by which they elicit these effects remain elusive. Female animals and humans have increased nitric oxide bioavailability with age in comparison to males, and this effect can be negated by ovariectomy surgery, suggesting an interaction between ovarian steroids and nitric oxide. In addition, studies have shown an upregulation of the angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2R) in aged females in comparison with males. Whilst incompletely understood, the AT2R is known to mediate vasodilation, nitric oxide release, and can be modulated by oestrogen. Work in this laboratory has shown that the expression of AT2R, renal ageing, and blood pressure may all be sensitive to the nutritional environment encountered during foetal development ...
There have been few studies that have examined endothelium-dependent relaxation of mouse vessels in vitro. In normal mice, we found that acetylcholine produced relaxation that was markedly attenuated by the nitric oxide synthase inhibitor l-NNA. Thus, relaxation of the normal mouse aorta in response to acetylcholine is mediated in large part by nitric oxide.. Mechanisms that produce impaired endothelial function in atherosclerosis are not completely clear. One possibility is that smaller quantities of nitric oxide are produced by atherosclerotic vessels in response to endothelium-dependent stimuli. This seems unlikely, because levels of mRNA and protein for the endothelial isoform of nitric oxide synthase (NOS III) and the production of nitric oxide in the atherosclerotic rabbit aorta appear to be increased rather than decreased.25 26 We found that vasorelaxation in response to both acetylcholine and A23187 was impaired in the proximal aortas of apoE/LDL receptor-deficient mice, which contained ...
An electrode sensor which may be used to specifically and quantitatively measure nitric oxide is provided, as well as a method of preparing and using such an electrode sensor to measure nitric oxide concentration in solution. A nitric oxide (NO) microsensor based on catalytic oxidation of NO comprises a thermally-sharpened carbon fiber with a tip diameter of about 0.5-0.7 μm coated with several layers of p-type semiconducting polymeric porphyrin and cationic exchanger deposited thereon. The microsensor, which can be operated in either the amperometric, voltammetric or coulometric mode utilizing a two or three electrode system, is characterized by a linear response up to about 300 μM, a response time better than 10 msec and a detection limit of about 10 nM. The sensor of the present invention also discriminates against nitrite, the most problematic interferant in NO measurements. The amount of NO released from a single cell can thus be selectively measured in situ by a porphyrinic microsensor of the
Due to its popularity, hundreds of thousands of people have started consuming nitric oxide supplements. Like most supplements, a number of nutritionists have promoted and stood behind it because of its many benefits. However, just like with anything, there are both positive and negative nitric oxide side effects. The following are just a couple of effects that all users should know.. Nitric oxide has the ability to promote more endurance and energy by helping a users muscles. People often fail to realize how much their bodies depend on the oxygen they breathe. Your muscles need oxygen in order to repair themselves after being worked extensively. Nitric oxide helps with the delivery of oxygen to the muscles by allowing certain muscles to relax. These relaxed muscles allow blood to flow more easily to your tissues so that oxygen can be delivered.. By increasing a persons energy and endurance theyll be less likely to experience fatigue during and after a workout. Its not uncommon for athletes ...

Both of these pathways are valid for the creation of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule. Its used by your vascular system to improve blood flow. This molecule has three primary benefits:. First is vasodilation, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the blood vessels so that they expand. This improves the deliver of oxygen and nutrients. As well as aids in the removal of cellular waste. And, it can be a natural way to lower blood pressure back into the normal range.. Additionally, men cannot have an erection without nitric oxide so sexual health is also dependent on your nitric oxide levels.. Second, nitric oxide keeps blood platelet cells from sticking together, which naturally reduces your risk for strokes and heart attacks.. Third, nitric oxide helps to initiate repair mechanisms to keep the lining of your vascular system, what is call the endothelium, healthy and functioning.. Now, let me give you an overview of each pathway. Then at the end, Ill give you my opinion on which ...

Nitric Oxide, or NO is an incredibly simple molecule, a nitrogen and an oxygen that are stuck together with 2 bonds. NO is very important for many things, most importantly it lowers blood pressure. Healthy human skin tissue contains significant quantities of nitrite. Stores of nitrites can be turned into nitric oxide. Every cell type in human skin is able to produce nitric oxide by several mechanisms. Dietary nitrate represents an important source of cutaneous nitric oxide. Green leafy vegetables, beetroots, lettuce have a lot of these nitrites. Also carnivorous sources of arginine result in stores of nitric oxide; turkey, pork and chicken are good sources. Supplements such as arginine and citrulline may also be sources of dietary nitrate.. Nature has a reason for everything it does. Sunlight exposure increases skin production of nitric oxide, which can dilate the 60,000 miles of blood vessels we have in our body, and improve blood flow. Ultraviolet light from the sun, specifically UVA, is what ...

Increasing nitric oxide (NO) has become the new secret weapon for athletes and bodybuilders. It is used as the primary ingredient in various dietary supplements to support the flow of blood and oxygen to the skeletal muscle and also use them to facilitate the removal of exercise-induced lactic acid buildup which reduces fatigue and recovery time.. Whilst exercise and diet can impact your Nitric Oxide levels, your genes also play a role. Specifically, your NOS3 gene can suggest whether you should be supplementing your diet with Nitric Oxide boosting foods and supplements. Or whether you have a natural advantage in terms of Nitric Oxide levels produced by your body, hence giving you a power based training advantage.. ...

Background and purpose: Previous work has shown that NG-monomethyl-l-arginine (l-NMMA) paradoxically inhibits basal, but not ACh-stimulated activity of nitric oxide in rat aorta. The aim of this study was to determine if the endogenously produced agent, asymmetric NG, NG-dimethyl-l-arginine (ADMA), also exhibits this unusual selective blocking action. Experimental approach: The effect of ADMA on basal nitric oxide activity was assessed by examining its ability to enhance phenylephrine (PE)-induced tone in endothelium-containing rings. Its effect on ACh-induced relaxation was assessed both in conditions where ADMA greatly enhanced PE tone and where tone was carefully matched with control tissues at a range of different levels. Key results: ADMA (100 µM) potentiated PE-induced contraction, consistent with inhibition of basal nitric oxide activity. Higher concentrations (300-1000 µM) had no greater effect. Although ADMA (100 µM) also appeared to block ACh-induced relaxation when it enhanced PE ...

AU - D. Catravas, John. AU - Caldwell, Robert W.. PY - 1998/1/12. Y1 - 1998/1/12. N2 - There is compelling evidence to indicate an anti-inflammatory action of Zn2+. Most inflammatory diseases are associated with an increase of the inducible form of nitric oxide (NO) synthase. Additionally, inflammatory mediators such as histamine or bradykinin stimulate the constitutive NO synthase. Thus, the present study was undertaken to investigate whether Zn2+ inhibits production of inducible NO synthase and/or constitutive NO synthase activity to produce NO. Lipopolysaccharide, 5 mg/kg i.v., administered to Zn2+-deficient (ZD) rats, rats supplemented with Zn2+ sulfate (ZG), 10 mg/kg s.c., or controls resulted in a significant reduction of their serum Zn2+.

Regulating Blood Pressure in People Suffering from High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure is a condition in which the force of blood flowing is so high that it can result in several other conditions some of which weaken the heart, it is also known as hypertension. Usually, there are no symptoms of this condition but some people experience nosebleeds, headaches, and shortness of breath when their blood pressure is dangerously high. This condition occurs when the body is unable to utilize the nitric oxide produced in the body, thus people suffering from this condition are not able to regulate their high blood pressure naturally. If people who suffer from high blood pressure eat foods rich in nitrates and flavonoids, then it will increase in the amount of nitrogen oxide in the body. This is because the nitrates are converted into nitric oxide by your body and the Flavonoids prevent the breakdown of this element so that high levels of utilizable nitric oxide are present in the body of people who ...
Nitric oxide (NO) is a short-lived, unstable gas which is synthesized by a number of isoforms of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS), all of which are related to the cytochrome P 450 family but which have diverged from a speculated common precursor in the distant past (MONCADA et al. 2001). seemingly plain and unassuming nitric oxide. 1992 Sep; 6 (12):3051-3064. It regulates blood flow, energy metabolism, brain function, immunity, and hormone production. NO is synthesized from the amino acid l -arginine by NO synthase (NOS) and is involved in a myriad of cellular functions, including muscle relaxation, neuronal signaling, and immune function. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. )�!n3gut�M�h ?��G�HB]��H��r���6� @1>g��>י��~����\��c��6�;���ɓhtB�Id3��4�f����Mm�{6�;�;��;@KEC9��P���\tDEG�2��(��� b 1HF ��*� It is not to be confused with nitrous ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of l-arginine in nitric oxide production in health and hypertension. AU - Rajapakse, Niwanthi W.. AU - Mattson, David L.. PY - 2009/3. Y1 - 2009/3. N2 - l-Arginine is the substrate for vascular nitric oxide (NO) formation. Under normal physiological conditions, intracellular l-arginine levels far exceed the Km of NO synthase for l-arginine. However, endogenous NO formation is dependent on extracellular l-arginine concentrations, giving rise to the concept of the l-arginine paradox. Nitric oxide production in epithelial and endothelial cells is closely coupled to cellular l-arginine uptake, indicating that l-arginine transport mechanisms play a major role in the regulation of NO-dependent function. Consistent with the data in endothelial and epithelial cells are functional data indicating that exogenous l-arginine can increase renal vascular and tubular NO bioavailability and thereby influence kidney perfusion, function and arterial pressure. The integrated effect of ...
OBJECTIVE: To determine serum concentrations of nitric oxide metabolites (NOX) in patients with severe ulcerative colitis and to assess whether these concentrations predict clinical outcome. PATIENTS: Twenty-six patients (16 men and 10 women, mean age 46 years) with severe ulcerative colitis requiring hospitalization for parenteral steroid therapy. Thirteen patients had a complete clinical response and symptoms resolved after 5 days of parenteral steroid administration; 13 made an incomplete recovery and needed further treatment (six cyclosporin, seven colectomy). METHODS: Serum concentrations of NOX and C-reactive protein (CRP) were measured daily for 3 days in all patients and as clinically indicated thereafter. The normal range for NOX was established by measuring the concentration in 25 healthy controls. RESULTS: Mean serum NOX and CRP concentrations were significantly elevated in both the patients with a complete and those with an incomplete response compared with controls (P | 0.001) on day 1 and
Exposure of mice to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) plus interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) increases nitric oxide (NO) production, which is proposed to play a role in the resulting pulmonary damage and inflammation.

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a highly-reactive radical gas that can modify a variety of cellular targets in both eukaryotes and bacteria. NO is produced endogenously by a wide variety of organisms: For example, as a cell-signaling molecule in mammals and bacteria via nitric oxide synthase (NOS) enzymes, and as a product of denitrification. As such, it is of great benefit to NO researchers to be able to sensitively detect intracellular NO and stable reactive nitrogen species (RNS) derived from NO. To this end, a protocol for fluorescent detection of intracellular NO/RNS in biofilm cultures of the Gram-positive pathogen Staphylococcus aureus has been optimized using the commercially-available cell-permeable fluorescent stain 4-Amino-5-Methylamino-2,7-Difluorofluorescein Diacetate (DAF-FM diacetate). This compound diffuses into cells and intracellular cleavage by esterase enzymes liberates weakly-fluorescent DAF-FM, which reacts with NO or other specific RNS to become highly fluorescent (Kojima et al., 1999).
Inhaling a small dose of nitric oxide gas may one day help sickle cell patients avoid pain crises and live healthier lives, researchers say.. Nitric oxide may help normalize a sickle cell patients hemoglobin by restoring the natural charge and shape to the oxygen-carrying component of red blood cells, Medical College of Georgia researchers have found.. Hemoglobin S plus nitric oxide behaves much like normal adult hemoglobin, which does not sickle, says Dr. C. Alvin Head, chair of the Medical College of Georgia Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine.. In fact, their test-tube studies of human hemoglobin show nitric oxide not only prevents unhealthy clustering of hemoglobin S molecules but can melt existing polymers, leaving more hemoglobin free to do its job of oxygen delivery to the body.. Inhaling the short-acting gas naturally found on hemoglobin allows low concentrations to come in close contact with red blood cells and essentially turns the lungs into a hemoglobin repair ...

Purpose: Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is an endogenous gasotransmitter that has vasodilatory properties. It may be a novel therapy for intestinal I/R. We hypothesized that: 1) H2S would improve post-ischemic survival, mesenteric perfusion, mucosal injury, and inflammation compared to vehicle, and 2) the benefits of H2S would be mediated through endothelial nitric oxide. Methods: C57Bl6J wild type (WT) and endothelial nitric oxide synthase knock out (eNOS KO) mice were anesthetized and a midline laparotomy performed. Intestines were eviscerated, the small bowel mesenteric root identified, and baseline intestinal perfusion determined using Laser Doppler. Intestinal ischemia was established by temporarily occluding the superior mesenteric artery. Following ischemia, the clamp was removed and the intestines were allowed to recover. Sodium hydrosulfide (NaHS) in 250µl of PBS or the vehicle was injected into the peritoneum. Animals were allowed to recover and were assessed for survival, mesenteric ...
In 1986 it was shown that Nitric Oxide causes vasodilation -- this appears to be why Nitroglycerin can alleviate cardiac angina, and why the side effects can include headaches. Nitric Oxide is also the transmitter that results in engorgement of the sexual organs -- the drug Viagra has its effect on the second messenger, cyclic GMP, but other treatments for impotency involve delivery of NO. Some recent work has indicated that Nitric Oxide can be carried on molecules of Hemoglobin -- specifically the relaxed form, oxyhemoglobin, can form S-Nitrosohemoglobin by reaction with beta-Cys-93. The article by Stamler et al. was published in Science, v. 276, pages 2034-2037, the June 27, 1997 issue. It is titled Blood Flow Regulation by S-Nitrosohemoglobin in the Physiological Oxygen Gradient. The Nobel Prize announcement gives a good overview of NO activity and the history of its discovery. And the Nitric Oxide Home Page, while a little daunting, is a good clearing house for information about NO. ...

A role for the NO-cGMP pathway in mediating chemosensory activation of feeding is suggested by intense NADPH diaphorase staining observed in nerve fibers that project from sensory cells in the lips to the CNS and by the presence in the CNS of a NO-activated guanylyl cyclase. In preparations reduced to isolated lips and CNS, intracellular recordings were made from motoneurons driven by the interneurons of the central pattern generator (CPG) for feeding. Fictive feeding in such preparations can be recorded from these motoneurons following the application of sucrose to the lips. Sucrose activation of fictive feeding is inhibited by the NO scavenger hemoglobin, the NO synthase inhibitor N omega-Nitro-L-Arginine Methyl Ester (L-NAME) and by methylene blue, an inhibitor of guanylyl cyclase. Fictive feeding in isolated lip-CNS preparations can be activated without sucrose by superfusion of NO donor molecules such as SNAP and hydroxylamine and by the nonhydrolyzable analog of cGMP, 8-bromo-cGMP. The ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Activation of the inducible nitric oxide synthase pathway contributes to inflammation-induced osteoporosis by suppressing bone formation and causing osteoblast apoptosis. AU - Armour, K. J.. AU - Armour, K. E.. AU - Van T Hof, Robert Jurgen. AU - Reid, David M. AU - Wei, X.. AU - Liew, F. Y.. AU - Ralston, S. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Objective. Osteoporosis is a major clinical problem in chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The mechanism of bone loss in this condition remains unclear, but previous studies have indicated that depressed bone formation plays a causal role. Since cytokine-induced nitric oxide (NO) production has been shown to inhibit osteoblast growth and differentiation in vitro, this study was undertaken to investigate the role of the inducible NO synthase (iNOS) pathway in the pathogenesis of inflammation-mediated osteoporosis (IMO) by studying mice with targeted inactivation of the iNOS gene (iNOS knockout [iNOS KO] mice).Methods. IMO was ...
Nitric oxide (NO) reflects changes in inflammatory state of the airways. In pulmonology fractional exhaled nitric oxide concentration (FeNO) has been linked to eosinophilic asthma and is used to guide overall disease control. The measurement of nasal nitric oxide (nNO) may reflect the disease burden and inflammatory phenotype of the paranasal sinuses.. The aim of our study is to evaluate the relation of chronic rhino sinusitis (CRS) severity and inflammatory status to nNO, maxillary sinus NO, nitrite, nitrate and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).. Three groups (22 patients in each) of referred patients and and 22 healthy volunteers are recruited. Patients are grouped according to the CBCT score and viewed three times in 4-6 weeks intervals. ...

Keloid and hypertrophic lesions are both types of scarring pathologies which arise as a consequence of excess collagen deposition during the wound healing process. The exact mechanism by which this occurs is not understood and currently no effective treatment exists. In this paper, we study the possible role of nitric oxide in excess scar formation. In recent years, the physiological role of this free radical in mammalian tissue has been extensively studied; in particular numerous groups have studied its role in wound healing. We describe a mathematical model which offers a possible explanation for keloid scarring in terms of the presence of higher than normal nitric oxide concentrations related to the fact that nitric oxide stimulates synthesis of collagen by fibroblasts. As a consequence of this, we put forward a suggestion for a treatment strategy involving the surgical excision of the keloid lesion combined with the application of a low-dose nitric oxide inhibitor. In addition, we show that ...

Older adults have reduced vascular endothelial function, evidenced by attenuated nitric oxide (NO)-dependent cutaneous vasodilatation. Folic acid and its metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), are reported to improve vessel function. We hypothesized that (i) local 5-MTHF administration and (ii) chronic folic acid supplementation would improve cutaneous microvascular function in ageing through NO-dependent mechanisms. There were two separate studies in which there were 11 young (Y: 22±1 years) and 11 older (O: 71±3 years) participants. In both studies, two intradermal microdialysis fibres were placed in the forearm skin for local delivery of lactated Ringers solution with or without 5 mM 5-MTHF. Red cell flux was measured by laser-Doppler flowmetry. Cutaneous vascular conductance [CVC=red cell flux/mean arterial pressure] was normalized as percentage maximum CVC (%CVCmax) (28 mM sodium nitroprusside, local temperature 43°C). In study 1 after CVC plateaued during local heating, 20 mM ...
Treatment of pancreatic islets with interleukin 1 (IL-1) results in a time-dependent inhibition of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion which has recently been demonstrated to be dependent on the metabolism of L-arginine to nitric oxide. In this report IL-1 beta is shown to induce the accumulation of cyclic GMP (cGMP) in a time-dependent fashion that mimics the time-dependent inhibition of insulin secretion by IL-1 beta. The accumulation of cGMP is dependent on nitric oxide synthase activity, since NG-monomethyl-L-arginine (a competitive inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase) prevents IL-1 beta-induced cGMP accumulation. cGMP formation and nitrite production induced by IL-1 beta pretreatment of islets are also blocked by the protein synthesis inhibitor, cycloheximide. The formation of cGMP does not appear to mediate the inhibitory effects of IL-1 beta on insulin secretion since a concentration of cycloheximide (1 microM) that blocks IL-1 beta-induced inhibition of glucose-stimulated insulin ...
Introduction. Discuss - Metal oxides are alkaline, non-metal oxides are acidic Moving across the periodic table from left to right will bring about a change in the nature of the element. Generally, there are trends in certain properties in the elements that we can spot, for instance boiling/melting points. Period three elements are from Sodium to Argon inclusive, and possess particular characteristics. All of the period 3 elements except argon and chlorine will combine with oxygen to form oxide molecules (Na2O, MgO, Al2O3, SiO2, P4O10, SO2 and SO3). How does their pH differ, and what is different about Al2O3? It is not just the properties of the period 3 elements that differ as we move across the periodic table; this movement also affects the properties of the oxides of said elements. These changes are a result of the transition from metal elements to non-metal elements. The oxides of sodium, magnesium and aluminium are all examples of the compounds formed by a metal combined to a non-metal. ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of nitric oxide on systemic hemodynamics and oxygen metabolism following acute hepatic inflow occlusion. Fourteen mongrel pigs received solvent (control group, n = 4), the nitric synthesis inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME group, n = 5), or the substrate for nitric oxide synthesis L-arginine (L-arginine group, n = 5) 30 min before hepatic inflow occlusion. Following 30 min of hepatic ischemia, all livers were reperfused. While all pigs in the control group and L-arginine group survived more than 7 days after reperfusion, two of five pigs in the L-NAME group died during hepatic ischemia period. However, venous oxygen saturation was significantly lower during and after ischemic period, oxygen extraction ratio was significantly higher during hepatic ischemic period in L-NAME group, and systemic vascular resistance was also significantly higher 5 and 15 min after hepatic inflow occlusion. Furthermore, lactate/pyruvate ratio was ...

Researchers from the Warwick Medical School discovered the span of problems that can affect the way nitric oxide functions in the placenta when suffering from pre-eclampsia.. They found out that in instances when a pregnancy is compromised, the placenta releases a hormone called corticotropin, which directs the bodys ability to produce nitric oxide.That way, even if the enzyme is prevented from producing NO molecules, the placenta has the ability to produce enough nitric oxide.. In line with their discovery, the researchers had hoped to study medical interventions that provide a solution in allowing nitric oxide to function normally for general health conditions. They hope that the malfunctioning protein receptors that prevent the enzyme that releases the gaseous NO molecules, be the first target of future researchers.. ...
Various types of evidence implicate nitric oxide and an oxidant, possibly peroxynitrite, in MCS and chemical intolerance (CI). The positive feedback loops proposed earlier for CFS may explain the chronic nature of MCS (CI) as well as several of its other reported properties. These observations raise the possibility that this proposed elevated nitric oxide/peroxynitrite mechanism may be the mechanism of a new disease paradigm, answering the question raised by Miller earlier: Are we on the threshold of a new theory of disease?

As described in Chapter 42, niric oxide (NO) is synthesized from the amino acid l-arginine by the actions of a family of enymes, the NO synthases (NOS), each isoform of which is encoded by a separate gene. Two NOS isoforms are calcium-dependent and constitutively expressed and produce low levels of NO: NOS1 (neuronal NOS or nNOS), which is found mostly in neurons and skeletal muscle, and NOS3 (endothelial NOS or eNOS), which is found mostly in endothelial cells. NOS1 is critical for neurotransmission and learning, and NOS3 regulates vascular tone and adhesion of circulating cells. Inducible NOS (iNOS or NOS2) is transcriptionally induced by proinflammatory cytokines (such as tumor necrosis factor-α [TNF-α] and interferon-γ [IFN-γ]) and microbial products (e.g., lipoplysaccharide [LPS]). iNOS is calciumindependent, expressed by many cell types (especially mononuclear phagocytes, hepatocytes, chondrocytes and smooth muscle cells) and is responsible for high output NO production (1-3). While ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A common pathway for nitric oxide release from NO-aspirin and glyceryl trinitrate. AU - Grosser, Nina. AU - Schröder, Henning. PY - 2000/7/21. Y1 - 2000/7/21. N2 - NO-Aspirin (NCX-4016) releases nitric oxide (NO) in biological systems through as yet unidentified mechanisms. In LLC-PK1 kidney epithelial cells, a 5-h pretreatment with glyceryl tinitrate (GTN, 0.1-1 μM) significantly attenuated the cyclic GMP response to a subsequent challenge with both NO-aspirin or GTN. Similarly, NO-aspirin (10-100 μM) was found to induce tolerance to its own cyclic GMP stimulatory action and to that of GTN. In contrast, cyclic GMP stimulation by the spontaneous NO donor SIN-1, which releases NO independently of enzymatic catalysis, remained unimpaired in cells pretreated with GTN or NO-aspirin. The observed cross-tolerance between NO-aspirin and GTN cells indicates that bioactivation pathways of organic nitrates, which have been shown to involve cytochrome P450, may also be responsible for NO ...

Plant nitrates are not the same as nitrites and nitrates found in processed meats (deli). They are converted to harmful nitrosamines, which are linked to an increased risk of cancer. So this distinction is essential! Nitrates from vegetables and fruits are the basis of nitric oxide production.. Arugula and beets have the highest content of nitrates needed to produce nitric oxide! Spinach, green leaves, coriander leaves and cabbage are also very rich sources of nitrates.. Celery, leeks, radishes, endives, fennel, eggplant, rhubarb, basil and carrots are also decent sources of usable nitrates.. Fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C can improve the level of nitric oxide by increasing its bioavailability, as well as by maximizing its absorption.. Watermelon is the richest source of L-citrulline, an amino acid that can be converted to nitric oxide.. Spirulina is rich in healthy vitamins and minerals, protective chlorophyll of cells and can increase the level of nitric oxide.. Nuts and seeds have a ...
nitric oxide (gas Inhalation or releasing solution) for COVID-19 - results of living meta-analysis of clinical studies - metaEvidence.org
Nitric oxide has gotten the most attention due to its cardiovascular benefits. Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel Prize, was prescribed nitroglycerin over 100 years ago by his doctor to help with his heart problems. He was skeptical, knowing nitroglycerin was used in dynamite, but this chemical helped with his heart condition. Little did he know nitroglycerin acts by releasing nitric oxide which relaxes narrowed blood vessels, increasing oxygen and blood flow.. The interior surface (endothelium) of your arteries produce nitric oxide. When plaque builds up in your arteries, called atherosclerosis, you reduce your capacity to produce nitric oxide, which is why physicians prescribe nitroglycerin for heart and stroke patients.. The above are extracts from What is nitric oxide and how does it work?. ...
THURSDAY, April 9, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Doctors at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) are enrolling patients in an international clinical trial to find out if inhaled nitric oxide benefits those with COVID-19 who have severely damaged lungs.. Right now, there are no approved treatments for the illness caused by the new coronavirus. A severe form of lung failure called acute respiratory distress syndrome is the leading cause of death in COVID-19.. When lungs are failing, air is received by some parts of them but not others. Nitric oxide is a gas that improves blood flow in areas of the lungs that are getting air, increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood stream.. Nitric oxide also reduces the workload of the right side of the heart, which is under extreme stress during lung failure.. Along with being used to treat failing lungs, nitric oxide has been found to have antiviral properties against coronaviruses. That was shown during the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak, which was caused by a ...
Nitric oxide supplements have been getting a lot of attention lately. Nitric oxide is a gas that researchers are finding can control a limitless range of functions in the body. It has been documented that nitric oxide helps in controlling the circulation of the blood, and in regulating activities in various parts of the body; for instance the brain, lungs, stomach, liver, and kidneys, just to name a few. Nitric oxide is one part nitrogen, one part oxygen. In 1988, three Americans were awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for their discovery of nitric oxide.. Nitric oxide supplements contain arginine-alpha-keto-glutarate, which is an amino acid. If you collect too much of this amino acid in your body it can lead to diarrhea, nausea, and body weakness, and since there are no dosage guidelines, you should start out taking small doses for about one week, note any benefits or side effects, and then increase or decrease the dosage for maximum benefits.. ...
Quercetin reduces blood pressure in hypertensive, but not normotensive individuals. Ex vivo tissue has implicated NADPH oxidase signalling and ROS formation in the mechanism of action in vascular smooth muscle, however there has been no assessment of the role of the endothelium in the anti-hypertensive effects of quercetin. This study describes an endothelial cell model of hypertension and its use to probe the anti-hypertensive effects of quercetin.. Angiotensin II (100 nM, 8 h) rendered Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVEC) hypertensive, characterised by decreased nitric oxide availability (15±4%, p,0.05) and increased superoxide production (136±5%, p,0.001, measured by LC-MS detection of dihydroethidium reaction products) compared to controls. Co-exposure of HUVEC to angiotensin II and quercetin (3 µM, 8 h) restored the nitric oxide:superoxide imbalance to control (normotensive) levels without altering eNOS mRNA expression. Quercetin alone had no effects upon nitric oxide, ...
Myoblast are myogenic precursors that proliferate, activate, and differentiate on muscle injury to sustain the regenerative capacity of skeletal muscle; The neuronal isoform of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS, termed also NOS-I) is expressed in normal adult skeletal muscle, suggesting important functions for Nitric oxide (NO) in muscle biology1,2,3. However, the expression and subcellular localization of NO in muscle development and myoblast differentiation are largely unknown. In this study, we examined effects of the nitric oxide generated by a microwave plasma torch, on proliferation/differentiation of rat myoblastic L6 cells. Experimental data pertaining to nitric oxide production are presented in terms of the oxygen input in units of cubic centimetres per minute. The various levels of nitric oxide are observed depending on the flow rate of nitrogen gas, the ratio of oxygen gas, and the microwave power4. In order to evaluate the potential of nitric oxide as an activator of cell differentiation, ...
