|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||133290 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 140 kDa eNOS of human, mouse, and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||NOS3 , cNOS , ECNOS , EC-NOS , NOSIII|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||eNOS Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane, caveola. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Golgi apparatus. Cell membrane. 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 Location||Expressed constitutively by vascular endothelium. Detected in alveolar and serosal epithelial cells as well as in endothelial cells in one day old rat. In adult lung, detected in rare endothelial cells|

eNOS (Endothelial nitric-oxide synthase) is an important enzyme in the cardiovascular system. eNOS is regulated by phosphorylation at multiple sites. The two most thoro µghly studied sites are the activation site Ser1177 and the inhibitory site Thr495. Several protein kinases including Akt/PKB, PKA and AMPK activate eNOS by phosphorylating Ser1177 in response to various stimuli. In contrast, bradykinin and hydrogen peroxide activate eNOS activity by promoting Thr495 dephosphorylation.
