Biochem/physiol Actions

NOS is responsible for the biosynthesis of nitric oxide from L-arginine. iNOS is not calcium/calmodulin dependent and has a Km = 16 μM for L-arginine.

Unit Definition

One unit of enzyme produces 1 nmole of nitric oxide per minute at 37 °C in 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.4, containing 5 μM oxyhemoglobin, 0.1 mM NADPH, 1 mM arginine, 1 mM magnesium acetate, 12 μM tetrahydrobiopterin, and 170 μM DTT.

Physical form

Solution in 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.4, with 10% glycerol.

Blockade of monoamine transporters by cocaine should not necessarily lead to certain observed consequences of cocaine administration, including increased firing of ventral mesencephalic dopamine (DA) neurons and accompanying impulse-stimulated release of DA in the forebrain and cortex. Accordingly, we hypothesize...
