NOS2

A gene on chromosome 17q11.2-q12 that encodes inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), a small molecule that has various roles in cellular functions and acts via a cGMP-mediated signal transduction pathway. iNOS is both tumouricidal and bactericidal, has nitrosylase activity, and mediates cysteine S-nitrosylation of cytoplasmic target proteins such COX2. It is regulated by calcium/calmodulin, induced by endotoxins and cytokines, including IFN-gamma, in synergy with bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS, TNF or IL1B/IL-1 beta). Aspirin inhibits its expression and function. Some genetic variants of NOS2 play a role in resistance to malaria. NOS2 is also a less preferred gene symbol for what is now designated as NANOS2, see there.

The increased concentrations of exhaled NO in asthma originate predominately in the lower airway (36) and are most likely attributable to activation of NOS2 by damage to airway epithelial cells and by inflammation (37, 38), with a small contribution from NOS1 (39).

NOSs are present in 3 isoforms [43]: endothelial NOS3 (eNOS) and neuronal NOS1 (nNOS) are constitutively expressed in cardiomyocytes, while inducible NOS2 (iNOS) is absent in the normal myocardium, but its expression can be induced by proinflammatory mediators [25,60-63].
