Nitric oxide (NO) has a broad range of biological activities and is implicated in many cell signaling pathways. Nitric oxide synthases (NOS), the enzymes responsible for synthesis of NO, are fused enzymes that include a cytochrome reductase and a cytochrome that requires three cosubstrates (L-arginine, NADPH, and oxygen) and five cofactors (FAD, FMN, calmodulin, tetrahydrobiopterin, and heme). The NOS family includes two constitutive Ca2+/CaM-dependent forms of NOS: nNOS (also designated bNOS, NOS-I), whose activity was first identified in neurons and eNOS (also designated ecNOS, NOS-III) first identified in endothelial cells. The inducible form of NOS, iNOS (also designated NOS-II), is Ca2+ independent and is induced by microbial products in various cell types. Phosphorylation of NOS enzymes may regualte their activity. For example, Src kinase-induced phosphorylation of Tyr-1055 in iNOS reduces proteasomal degradation of iNOS, while shear stress induced phosphorylation of Tyr-657 in eNOS attenuates enzyme activity. Both of these tyrosine sites are conserved in nNOS, and may have important roles for regulate neuronal NOS activity.

The nNOS phospho-regulation kit can be used to examine phosphorylation of nNOS (Tyr-895)/eNOS (Tyr-657) and nNOS (Tyr-1326)/iNOS (Tyr-1055) conserved sites relative to the total expression of nNOS. The kit includes rabbit polyclonal and mouse monoclonal antibodies to detect total nNOS, and secondary reagents for rabbit polyclonal and mouse monoclonal antibody detection.
