Gene: Nos3 (nitric oxide synthase 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nos3
Name: nitric oxide synthase 3
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity, actin binding activity, and beta-catenin binding activity; involved in several processes, including aging, animal organ development, and cellular response to organic cyclic compound; localizes to several cellular components, including the apical part of cell, caveola, and cytoplasm; used to study artery disease (multiple), irritable bowel syndrome, ischemia (multiple), liver disease (multiple), and retinal disease (multiple); biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple), ischemia (multiple), kidney failure (multiple), liver disease (multiple), and lung disease (multiple); orthologous to human NOS3 (nitric oxide synthase 3); PARTICIPATES IN doxorubicin pharmacokinetics pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway; vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-carnitine; (R)-rosmarinic acid; 1,3-dinitrobenzene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: cNOS; constitutive NOS; EC-NOS; endothelial nitric oxide synthase 3; endothelial NOS; eNos; nitric oxide synthase 3, endothelial cell; nitric oxide synthase, endothelial; NOS type III; NOSIII
