      Description Anti-Nitric Oxide Synthase II Antibody
      Background Information Nitric Oxide Synthases are the only enzymes know to simultaneously require five bound cofactors, FAD, FMN, haem, tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) and Ca++-Calmodulin (CAM). In mammals, there are three distinct genes for NOS, NOS I is neuronal, NOS II is cytokine inducible, and NOS III is endothelial. The enzymes exist as homodimers, each monomer consisting of two major domains: N­terminal oxygenase domain, which belongs to the class of haem-thiolate proteins, and C­terminal reductase domain, which is homologous to NADPH:P450 reductase. The interdomain linker between the oxygenase and reductase domains contains a CaM­binding sequence. Functionally NOS is an enzyme that catalyzes the stepwise conversion of the amino acid L-arginine to nitric oxide and L-citrulline. NOS activity stimulates cyclic GMP, inducing smooth muscle relaxation by increasing intracellular cGMP, which in turn inhibits calcium entry into the cell, and decreases intracellular calcium concentrations. This also stimulates a cGMP-dependent protein kinase that activates myosin light chain phosphatase, the enzyme that dephosphorylates myosin light chains, which leads to smooth muscle relaxation.

      Key Applications
      • Western Blotting
      • Immunocytochemistry
      • Immunohistochemistry
      Application Notes Immunohistochemistry:
      1:5000 (ABC) dilution of a previous lot was used on tissue sections (rat liver).

      1:50,000 dilution of a previous lot was used on cultured cells.

      Western blot:
      1:5,000 (ECL). The antibody has been used successfully on rat liver. It is not recommended for use on rat brain extracts since unidentified bands may be present.

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
      Biological Information

      Species Reactivity Rat Mouse
      Species Reactivity Note Mouse and rat. Reactivity to human iNOS is approximately 1%.
      Antibody Type Polyclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene Summary Nitric oxide is a reactive free radical which acts as a biologic mediator in several processes, including neurotransmission and antimicrobial and antitumoral activities. This gene encodes a nitric oxide synthase which is expressed in liver and is inducible by a combination of lipopolysaccharide and certain cytokines. Three related pseudogenes are located within the Smith-Magenis syndrome region on chromosome 17.
