The residue was reconstituted in 0.5 ml of water and tested for the presence of the nNOS inactivator. This material was compared to the original solution of tobacco extract.
On the other hand, diet-induced obesity mice model enabled demonstration of endothelial p53 as a vast inactivator of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) [187].
A fluorometric assay for lysosomal acid lipase using DBS has been developed based on a 4MU fatty acid substrate and a covalent inactivator of the lysosomal acid lipase, which enables the activity of this enzyme to be teased out of the total lipase activity from a collection of enzymes in blood (75).
