Clinical Trials [723 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Determination of Variances in Exhaled Nitric Oxide Output in Normal Healthy Male Volunteers Consuming High and Low Nitrate/Nitrite Diets

This study will determine whether and how nitrites and nitrates in the diet affect the level of nitric oxide gas that is breathed out in air. Nitric oxide is involved in many bodily proce...

The Impact of Supplementation With Novel Prototype Nutrition Bar on Nitric Oxide Bioavailability and Measures of Athlete Performance

Dietary nitrate, L-citrulline, epicatechin, vitamin C and glutathione have the potential to improve nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability, in humans, by influencing both the nitrate-nitrite-NO...

Study of Arginine and Nitric Oxide in Patients With Diabetes

This study will test the effect of arginine versus citrulline versus placebo supplementation In three groups of ketosis-prone diabetes (KPD) patients on arginine and nitric oxide productio...

Sleep Apnea and Oxidative Stress and Nitric Oxide

Background: Previous studies present contradictory data concerning obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), lipid oxidation and nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability. This study was aimed: (1)...

L-arginine Treatment in Mild Hypertension

Essential Hypertension is characterized by endothelial dysfunction due to reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability. Impairment in nitric oxide-mediated vasodilatation in human brachial, c...

Investigation of N-hydroxy-l-arginine interference in the quantitative determination of nitrite and nitrate in human plasma and urine by GC-NICI-MS.

N-Hydroxy-l-arginine (NOHA) is the intermediate product of the conversion of l-arginine to l-citrulline and nitric oxide (NO) by nitric oxide synthase (NOS). NO is further oxidized to nitrite and nitr...

Effects of oral supplementation with nitrate-rich beetroot juice in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension - results from BEET-PAH an exploratory randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study.

The nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide (NO) pathway may represent a potential therapeutic target in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We explored the effects of dietary nitrate supplement...

Sex differences in the nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway: role of oral nitrate-reducing bacteria.

Oral reduction of nitrate to nitrite is dependent on the oral microbiome and is the first step of an alternative mammalian pathway to produce nitric oxide in humans. Preliminary evidence suggests impo...

Redefining Nitric Oxide Production in Legume Nodules through Complementary Insights from Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Specific Fluorescent Probes.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a signaling molecule with multiple functions in plants. Given its critical importance and reactivity as a gaseous free radical, we have examined NO production in legume nodules us...

Inorganic nitrate supplementation enhances functional capacity and lower-limb microvascular reactivity in patients with peripheral artery disease.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is characterized by functional and vascular impairments as well as elevated levels of inflammation which are associated with reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability. ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An NAD-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of nitrite to nitrate. It is a FLAVOPROTEIN that contains IRON and MOLYBDENUM and is involved in the first step of nitrate assimilation in PLANTS; FUNGI; and BACTERIA. It was formerly classified as EC

An iron-sulfur and MOLYBDENUM containing FLAVOPROTEIN that catalyzes the oxidation of nitrite to nitrate. This enzyme can use either NAD or NADP as cofactors. It is a key enzyme that is involved in the first step of nitrate assimilation in PLANTS; FUNGI; and BACTERIA. This enzyme was formerly classified as EC

A CALCIUM-dependent, constitutively-expressed form of nitric oxide synthase found primarily in NERVE TISSUE.
