nitric oxide synthase 1, neuronal

Gene Summary

Enables nitric-oxide synthase activity. Involved in several processes, including nitric oxide biosynthetic process; positive regulation of adenylate cyclase-activating adrenergic receptor signaling pathway involved in heart process; and positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including peptidyl-cysteine S-nitrosylation; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of metal ion transport. Located in several cellular components, including T-tubule; Z disc; and sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is active in calyx of Held. Colocalizes with caveola. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study achalasia and hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Parkinson's disease; asthma; cystic fibrosis; and hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. Orthologous to human NOS1 (nitric oxide synthase 1).
