Human NOS / Nitric Oxide Synthase
(tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Synthetic peptide from the N-terminal of the cloned rat cerebellar NO-synthase, coupled to polylysine.
Tested on human and rat tissues. Positive control: Frozen sections of rat colon.
Prior to reconstitution, 4°C. Following reconstitution store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
About NOS / Nitric Oxide Synthase
Nitric oxide synthases are a family of enzymes catalyzing the production of nitric oxide (NO) from L-arginine. NO is an important cellular signaling molecule. It helps modulate vascular tone, insulin secretion, airway tone, and peristalsis, and is involved in angiogenesis and neural development. It may function as a retrograde neurotransmitter. Nitric oxide is mediated in mammals by the calcium-calmodulin controlled isoenzymes eNOS (endothelial NOS) and nNOS (neuronal NOS).
