Gene: Nos2 (nitric oxide synthase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nos2
Name: nitric oxide synthase 2
RGD ID: 3185
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity; beta-catenin binding activity; and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway coupled to cGMP nucleotide second messenger; cellular response to cytokine stimulus; and response to bacterium. Localizes to several cellular components, including perinuclear region of cytoplasm; peroxisome; and vesicle membrane. Used to study several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; diabetic angiopathy; pleurisy; renal hypertension; and toxic shock syndrome. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetic angiopathy; inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); liver disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple). 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); PARTICIPATES IN endothelin signaling pathway; hypoxia inducible factor pathway; interleukin-12 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (+)-sesamin; (+)-Tetrandrine.
Type: protein-coding
