eNOS endothelial constitutive nitric oxide synthase. Synthesizes nitric oxide (NO) from arginine and oxygen, which is implicated in vascular smooth muscle relaxation through a cGMP-mediated signal transduction pathway. NO mediates vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced angiogenesis in coronary vessels and promotes blood clotting through the activation of platelets. Induced in humans by caloric restriction. Stimulated by calcium/calmodulin. Inhibited by NOSIP and NOSTRIN.



Score>80(red) has high confidence and is suggested to be used for WB detection. *The prediction model is mainly based on the alignment of immunogen sequences, the results are for reference only, not as the basis of quality assurance.

Research Backgrounds


Produces nitric oxide (NO) which is implicated in vascular smooth muscle relaxation through a cGMP-mediated signal transduction pathway. NO mediates vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced angiogenesis in coronary vessels and promotes blood clotting through the activation of platelets.

Lacks eNOS activity, dominant-negative form that may down-regulate eNOS activity by forming heterodimers with isoform 1.


Phosphorylation by AMPK at Ser-1177 in the presence of Ca(2+)-calmodulin (CaM) activates activity. In absence of Ca(2+)-calmodulin, AMPK also phosphorylates Thr-495, resulting in inhibition of activity (By similarity). Phosphorylation of Ser-114 by CDK5 reduces activity.

Subcellular Location:

Cell membrane. Membrane>Caveola. Cytoplasm>Cytoskeleton. Golgi apparatus.
Note: Specifically associates with actin cytoskeleton in the G2 phase of the cell cycle; which is favored by interaction with NOSIP and results in a reduced enzymatic activity.

Tissue Specificity:

Platelets, placenta, liver and kidney.

Subunit Structure:

Homodimer. Interacts with NOSIP and NOSTRIN. Interacts with HSP90AB1.


Belongs to the NOS family.

Fig. 4 ASM downregulation increased eNOS/NO signaling in RAECs. RAECs were incubated with 0.3 mM PA for 24 h and then transfected with ASM siRNA, or RAECs were transfected with Ob-Rb siRNA for 48 h and then treated with 10 μM AMI and 10 μM IMI for 24 h. Then, 100 nM leptin was added for 15 min prior to the collection of the cells. Summarized data showing the effects of ASM downregulation on the ratio of p-eNOS (Ser1177)/eNOS (a), eNOS activity (b), NO release (c), Ob-Rb expression (d), and the ratios of p-STAT3/STAT3 (e) and p-Akt/Akt (f) in RAECs. *P < 0.05 vs. vehicle control (Vehl Scr); #P < 0.05 vs. the PA alone-treated group; ΔP < 0.05 vs. the Ob-Rb siRNA alone-transfected group. Representative Western blot gels and summarized data showing the ratios of p-STAT3/STAT3 and p-Akt/Akt in RAECs that were pretreated with 10 μM cryptotanshinone for 24 h and then incubated with 0.3 mM PA for 24 h (g, h) or transfected with Ob-Rb siRNA for 48 h (i, j). *P < 0.05 vs. vehicle control (Vehl Scr); #P < 0.05 vs. the SCH772984 alone-treated group. The co-immunoprecipitation assay was used to test the interaction between p-STAT3 and p-Akt in RAECs treated with PA (k) or transfected with Ob-Rb siRNA (l). The data are the means ± SEMs from three experiments.
