Each volume of Advances in Pharmacology provides a rich collection of reviews on timely topics. Emphasis is placed on the molecular bases of drug action, both applied and experimental. This volume contains chapters that address diverse but interrelated areas pertaining to the chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and pharmacology of nitric oxide in mammalian cells. The contents form a comprehensive treatise of factors influencing the control of nitric oxide production in various cell types.
- Contains the most current and detailed documentation of the properties and regulation of nitric oxide synthases
- Provides the most up-to-date review of inhalational nitric oxide therapy for treatment of respiratory dysfunction
