eNOS

(ē'nos),

NOS3

A gene on chromosome 7q36 that encodes endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), a small molecule implicated in vascular smooth muscle relaxation through a cGMP-mediated signal transduction pathway. eNOS is a critical mediator of cardiovascular homeostasis that regulates the diameter of blood vessels and keeps vascular proliferation and apoptosis in check. It is upregulated by dynamin, porin and soluble guanylyl cyclase, and downregulated by interactions with Hsp90 and Cav-1 in the Golgi and by NOSIP and NOSTRIN at the plasma membrane. NOS3 is also a less preferred gene symbol for what is now designated as NANOS3, see there.

One limitation of this study was that the assessment of aggressive behaviors did not specify the gender of the opponents even though it could be argued that due to greater sensitivity to the gender of the provocateur (Winstok & Enosh, 2007) and approval of aggression toward and retaliation against males (Archer & Haigh, 1997; Hoppe, 1979; Winstok & Enosh, 2007), it was highly likely that in the absence of a specific gender of opponent in the study, participants had a male opponent in mind.

The term battered woman has a similar connotation, but implies a definition of a woman who is a certain kind of victim, the kind who is extremely socially stigmatized and stereotyped as weak, lacks self-esteem, makes bad choices, and as someone participating in a bad relationship (Peled, Eisikovitz, Enosh, & Winstok, 2000).
They forced him to grow a beard, to wear a kind of hat usually worn by mental patients, and -- further mocking him -- they even tried to change his name to David Enosh, that is, David, `human being.
The few available studies on the experiences of children of battered women suggest that, on the one hand, they commonly express fears and worries about potential and actual danger to their mothers and, on the other hand, often are trapped in conflicts of attachments and loyalties between their parents (Blanchard, Molloy, & Brown, 1992; Eisikovits, Winstok, & Enosh, 1998; Ericksen & Henderson, 1992; Graham-Bermann, 1996; Humphreys, 1991; Peled, 1998).
