Gene: NOS2 (nitric oxide synthase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NOS2
Name: nitric oxide synthase 2
Description: Exhibits nitric-oxide synthase activity. Involved in several processes, including cytokine secretion; nitric oxide biosynthetic process; and prostaglandin secretion. Localizes to the cytosol and peroxisome. Implicated in several diseases, including dementia (multiple); hypertension (multiple); malaria; pulmonary tuberculosis; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); cystic fibrosis; lung disease (multiple); obesity; and obstructive sleep apnea.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
