Nitric oxide: Key to cardiovascular and pulmonary function and drug effectiveness

...e researchers have shown that specialized forms of nitric oxide called SNOs may be the key to a problem that...esearchers believe that the presence or absence of nitric oxide or SNOs determines whether these receptors continue to function properly. This action is contr...

Premature births may be linked to seasonal levels of pesticides and nitrates in surface water

... and pesticides can disrupt endocrine hormones and nitric oxide pathways in the developing fetus," he said. "I believe this work may lay the foundation for some of the most important basic and clinical research, and public health initiatives of our time. To recognize that what we put into our environment...

Fat overrides effects of vitamin C

...ds by converting the nitrosating species back into nitric oxide (NO). However, NO diffuses rapidly to lipids, where it reacts with oxygen to reform nitrosating species. The presence of lipids therefore overrides the protective effect of vitamin C against the formation of harmful compounds....

Studies force new view on biology of flavonoids

...hat flavonoids increase the activation of existing nitric oxide synthase, which has the effect of keeping blood vessels healthy and relaxed, preventing inflammation, and lowering blood pressure ?all key goals in prevention of heart disease. Both of these protective mechanisms could be long-lasting compar...

Erectile dysfunction in diabetes is due to selective defect in the brain

... erection. The investigators also examined central nitric oxide (NO within the PVN) which plays an important role in the neurotransmission of normal penile erection. Penile erection is a behavioral response that occurs in response to the administration of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) within the PVN. ...

Flavanols in cocoa may offer benefits to the brain

...ralleled by an increase in the circulating pool of nitric oxide, a critical molecule in the circulatory system that helps dilate blood vessels and keeps them pliable. Hollenberg fed flavanol-rich cocoa to healthy volunteers who were over age 50 and observed a “striking blood flow response?that evolved ove...

It's in your head: The brain's own globin defends you from shock and stroke

...uggest that neuroglobin is more likely to usher in nitric oxide to protect neuron survival and recovery in areas where oxygen supply is reduced. "Understanding that our brains have a hemoglobin-like molecule in our head that protects and helps restore function in the brain is an important step toward hel...

Heart smart: new drug improves blood flow

...kage occurs, the cells lining the arteries produce nitric oxide to signal to the arterial muscles that they need to dilate the artery and allow more blood through. But free radicals destroy a key enzyme that allows the arterial cells to respond in this way, so the signal doesn't get through. However, the ...

Ammonia-loving archaea win landslide majority

...s the measured amounts of greenhouse gases such as nitric oxide and nitrous oxide are not produced by bacteria, but by a very different group of organisms, namely archaea," said Schleper. "But it is not clear, if and in what amounts the archaea form these gases as byproducts. This is only known from some of...

Key stress protein linked to toxicities responsible for Parkinson's, Alzheimer's

...ase, overproduction of free radicals, specifically nitric oxide (NO), causes inhibition of PDI by a reaction called S-nitrosylation, thereby reducing PDI's neuroprotective benefits. This data provides the first molecular link between NO free radicals and protein misfolding, which is currently thought to be...

Brain's own cannabis compound protects against inflammation

... suppresses the production of inflammation-causing nitric oxide, which would otherwise cause brain injury. The researchers concluded that the release of AEA in injured brain tissue might act as a "gatekeeper" and an important "negative-feedback loop within the CNS [central nervous system] immune system nee...
