Effect of Green Light on Nitric Oxide Metabolism in Chick Embryos. A Possible Physiological Role.


PMID 26519269

Abstract

The exposure to green light, which serves as a well-known activating factor for myogenesis during incubation of chicken eggs, contributes to intensification of embryonic metabolism of NO. A metabolic product, nitrate, is mainly accumulated in the muscles. These data suggest that light induces a NO-dependent activation of the factor, which intensifies muscle tissue development.
