Gene: NOS3 (nitric oxide synthase 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NOS3
Name: nitric oxide synthase 3
CRRD ID: 735618
Description: Exhibits several functions, including actin monomer binding activity; arginine binding activity; and heme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nitric oxide biosynthetic process; positive regulation of guanylate cyclase activity; and removal of superoxide radicals. Localizes to Golgi apparatus and caveola. Implicated in several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (multiple); artery disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and vasculitis (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including central sleep apnea; endometrial carcinoma; lymphangioleiomyomatosis; obstructive sleep apnea; and pulmonary hypertension.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
