    Nitric oxide (NO) inhibits vascular contraction by activating cGMP-dependent protein kinase I-a (PKGI-a), which causes dephosphorylation of myosin light chain (MLC) and vascular smooth muscle relaxation. Here we show that PKGI-a attenuates signaling by the thrombin receptor protease-activated...

    The ability of the endothelium to produce nitric oxide, which induces generation of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) that activates cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG-I), in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), is essential for the maintenance of vascular homeostasis. Yet, disturbance of...

    A spinal reflex and the L-arginine-nitric oxide-guanylyl cyclase-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) pathway mediate smooth muscle relaxation that results in penile erection. Nerves and endothelial cells directly release nitric oxide in the penis, where it stimulates guanylyl cyclase to...

    Aims: Nitric oxide (NO) and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) signalling via cGMP controls smooth muscle tone. One important signalling pathway of cGMP-dependent protein kinase type I (cGKI) is mediated by IRAG (IP3 receptor associated cGKI substrate) which is highly expressed in smooth muscle...

    Nitric oxide (NO) is formed from the conversion of L-arginine by nitric oxide synthase (NOS), which exists in three isoforms: neuronal (nNOS), endothelial (eNOS), and inducible (iNOS). nNOS is expressed in penile neurons innervating the corpus cavernosum, and eNOS protein expression has been...

    The article presents the analysis on the desensitisation of nitric oxide/cyclic guanosine monophosphate (NO/cGMP) signaling in vascular and bronchial smooth muscle. It states that the activation of PDE5 elicits a sustained desensitisation of the signaling pathway platelets towards further NO...

    Cochlear blood flow regulation is important to prevent hearing loss caused by ischemia and oxidative stress. Cochlear blood supply is provided by the spiral modiolar artery (SMA). The myogenic tone of the SMA is enhanced by the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) blocker L-NG -Nitro-Arginine (LNNA) in...

    We have recently shown that the nitric oxide (NO) donor, SNAP, decreased the expression of Giα proteins andassociated functions in vascular smooth muscle cells. Because NO stimulates soluble guanylyl cyclase andincreases the levels of guanosine 3\'',5\''-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP), the...
