Gene: Nos2 (nitric oxide synthase 2, inducible) Mus musculus
Symbol: Nos2
Name: nitric oxide synthase 2, inducible
CRRD ID: 10996
Description: Exhibits several functions, including arginine binding activity; coenzyme binding activity; and heme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; nitric oxide biosynthetic process; and response to bacterium. Localizes to cortical cytoskeleton and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; enteric nervous system; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Used to study type 1 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including dementia (multiple); hypertension (multiple); malaria; pulmonary tuberculosis; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human NOS2 (nitric oxide synthase 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
