Compound Summary for: CID 145068

Nitric Oxide

Also known as: Mononitrogen monoxide; INOmax; nitrogen monooxide; nitrosyl; oxoazanyl; oxyde azotique; oxido nitrico; Nitrosyl radical
Molecular Formula: NO   Molecular Weight: 30.0061   InChIKey: MWUXSHHQAYIFBG-UHFFFAOYSA-N
A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.   From: MeSH
