High impact information on nos1


Biological context of nos1

  • The results indicate the occurrence of different NOS isoforms in the adult brain, of which nNOS may participate in neurotransmission, and in mechanisms related to the continuous growth and neuronal plasticity of the teleost brain [2].

Associations of nos1 with chemical compounds

  • NOS immunoreactivity and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase activity partly coincided with the nNOS mRNA expression, however was present also in additional neuronal and non-neuronal cell types [2].
