Regulatory Status Legend
Nitric oxide synthase (NOS), a cell-type specific enzyme, catalyzes the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO). NO is a short-lived radical that transmits cellular signals involved in vasorelaxation, neurotransmission, and cytotoxicity. In macrophages and other cell types, NOS (iNOS or macNOS) activity increases following exposure to cytokines (IFN-γ, TNF-α, and IL-1) and microbial products (lipopolysaccharide (LPS)), iNOS is activated independently of Ca2+/calmodulin and its level of expression is tightly controlled by several transcription factors, including NFκB. Data indicates that TGF-β affects translation of iNOS mRNA and decreases iNOS protein stability. Normally undetectable in brain tissue, iNOS mRNA has been observed in CNS tissues of animals under experimental pathologic conditions. iNOS and nNOS share 51% amino acid homology with the greatest degree of divergence in the calmodulin binding domain.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at -20°C.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
