Term Name: nitric oxide mediated signal transduction Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • nitric oxide signaling
  • nitric oxide-mediated signal transduction
  • NO mediated signal transduction
  • NO-mediated signal transduction
Definition: Any intracellular signal transduction in which the signal is passed on within the cell via nitric oxide (NO). Includes synthesis of nitric oxide, receptors/sensors for nitric oxide (such as soluble guanylyl cyclase/sGC) and downstream effectors that further transmit the signal within the cell. Nitric oxide transmits its downstream effects through either cyclic GMP (cGMP)-dependent or independent mechanisms. 21549190
