【Abstract】

<正>Nitric oxide (NO), a gaseous free radical, is a fundamental signaling molecule and effector in a variety of physiological and pathological processes. In cells, NO is produced by a family of NO synthase (NOS) including neuronal NOS (nNOS), inducible NOS (iNOS), and endothelial NOS (eNOS). In addition to NO, NOS also produces superoxide, a primary reactive oxygen species. Superoxide generation was first found with nNOS. Subsequent studies revealed superoxide
