Protective effect of endothelial nitric oxide synthase against induction of chemically-induced diabetes in mice

Zhang, Jianhong (Annette); Kawashima, Seinosuke; Yokoyama, M; Huang, P; Hill, Caryl

Description

Since activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase has been shown to exert protective effects against the metabolic syndrome, while endothelial nitric oxide synthase knockout mice develop hyperinsulinemia and glucose intolerance, we hypothesised that endothelial nitric oxide might play a protective role against induction of diabetes. The role of endothelial nitric oxide in the development of chemically-induced diabetes has been determined using mice in which the bioavailability of...[Show more]
