|Antigen Region||830-860 aa|
|Other Names||Nitric oxide synthase, inducible, Hepatocyte NOS, HEP-NOS, Inducible NO synthase, Inducible NOS, iNOS, NOS type II, Peptidyl-cysteine S-nitrosylase NOS2, NOS2, NOS2A|
|Target/Specificity||This NOS2A antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 830-860 amino acids from the Central region of human NOS2A.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||NOS2A Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Produces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body (PubMed:7531687, PubMed:7544004). In macrophages, NO mediates tumoricidal and bactericidal actions. Also has nitrosylase activity and mediates cysteine S-nitrosylation of cytoplasmic target proteins such PTGS2/COX2 (By similarity). As component of the iNOS-S100A8/9 transnitrosylase complex involved in the selective inflammatory stimulus-dependent S-nitrosylation of GAPDH on 'Cys-247' implicated in regulation of the GAIT complex activity and probably multiple targets including ANXA5, EZR, MSN and VIM (PubMed:25417112). Involved in inflammation, enhances the synthesis of proinflammatory mediators such as IL6 and IL8 (PubMed:19688109).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the liver, retina, bone cells and airway epithelial cells of the lung. Not expressed in the platelets|

Nitric oxide is a reactive free radical which acts as a biologic mediator in several processes, including neurotransmission and antimicrobial and antitumoral activities. This gene encodes a nitric oxide synthase which is expressed in liver and is inducible by a combination of lipopolysaccharide and certain cytokines. Three related pseudogenes are located within the Smith-Magenis syndrome region on chromosome 17.
