calcium-mediated signaling +   
cyclic-nucleotide-mediated signaling +   
inositol phosphate-mediated signaling +   
nitric oxide mediated signal transduction +   
Any intracellular signal transduction in which the signal is passed on within the cell via nitric oxide (NO). Includes synthesis of nitric oxide, receptors/sensors for nitric oxide (such as soluble guanylyl cyclase/sGC) and downstream effectors that further transmit the signal within the cell. Nitric oxide transmits its downstream effects through either cyclic GMP (cGMP)-dependent or independent mechanisms.

Exact Synonyms: NO mediated signal transduction ;   nitric oxide signaling
