Nos1, Nitric oxide synthase, brain
Enzyme Classification 22.214.171.124
Also Known as
NOS1_RAT, Nos1, Bnos
Produces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body. In the brain and peripheral nervous system, NO displays many properties of a neurotransmitter. Inhibitory transmitter for non-adrenergic and non-cholinergic nerves in the colorectum. Probably has nitrosylase activity and mediates cysteine S-nitrosylation of cytoplasmic target proteins such SRR. Inhibitory transmitter for non-adrenergic and non-cholinergic nerves in the colorectum. Homodimer. Interacts with DLG4; the interaction possibly being prevented by the association between NOS1 and CAPON (By similarity). Forms a ternary complex with CAPON and RASD1. Forms a ternary complex with CAPON and SYN1. Interacts with ZDHHC23. Interacts with NOSIP; which may impair its synaptic location. Interacts with HTR4 (By similarity). Interacts with SLC6A4 (By similarity). Interacts with VAC14. Interacts (via N-terminal domain) with DLG4 (via N-terminal tandem pair of PDZ domains).
