Nitric oxide (NO) is a hormone that connects numerous reactions in plant cells under normal and environmental stress conditions. We found that application of 100 μM NO as sodium nitroprusside (SNP; NO donor) was studied individually or in combination of 100 mg N or 100 mg S applied in different combinations i.e., 100 mg N or S kg soil applied at the time of sowing [100N+100S] or with split, 50 mg N or S kg soil at the time of sowing and similar dose at 20 d after sowing [50N+50S] +[50N+50S] on alleviation of 100 mM NaCl stress in mustard (Brassica juncea L.). Application of 100 μM NO plus split application of N and S more significantly promoted stomatal behavior, photosynthetic and growth performance in the absence of salt stress and maximally alleviated effects of salt stress through increased N- and S-use efficiency, proline and antioxidant system. The combined application of N and S at the time of sowing was lesser effective in promoting photosynthesis and growth under salt or no salt stress conditions in presence or absence of NO. The study suggests that salt stress effects on photosynthetic performance of plants are mitigated more efficiently when NO was applied in the split application of N and S given at two stages, and the photosynthetic activity was promoted under salt stress through increased N and S assimilation and antioxidant system. The strategy may be adopted in agricultural system for overcoming salt stress effects on performance of mustard. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a free radical synthesized mainly by nitric oxide synthases (NOSs). NO regulates many aspects in sperm physiology in different species. However, in vitro studies investigating NOS...
The best predictor of leaf level photosynthetic rate is the porosity of the leaf surface, as determined by the number and aperture of stomata on the leaf (Wong et al. 1979; Franks and Beerling 2009; B...
This study aims to investigate the pharmacologic consequence of genetic deletion of nitric oxide synthase 3 (NOS3) in caveolin 1 (Cav1)-/- mice (double knockout [DKO]) in response to a nitric oxide (N...
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) improves tolerance to arsenic (As) toxicity in Vicia faba through the modifications of biochemical attributes, antioxidants, ascorbate-glutathione cycle and glyoxalase cycle.
The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of arsenic (As) toxicity and the mitigating role of nitric oxide (NO) donor sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on Vicia faba. Arsenics stress decreased t...
Fine particulate matter (PM) has been widely associated with airway inflammation represented by increased fractional concentration of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO). However, it remains unclear whether v...
This blinded, placebo-controlled study will administer inhaled nitric oxide to patients undergoing liver transplantation. The purpose of the study is to test if inhaled nitric oxide preven...

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of inhaled nitric oxide in prevention of lung graft dysfunction due to ischemia-reperfusion
A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
An NADPH-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-ARGININE and OXYGEN to produce CITRULLINE and NITRIC OXIDE.
A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in NERVE TISSUE.
A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.
A CALCIUM-independent subtype of nitric oxide synthase that may play a role in immune function. It is an inducible enzyme whose expression is transcriptionally regulated by a variety of CYTOKINES.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
