|Description: Nitric oxide synthase, brain (EC 18.104.22.168) (NOS type I) (NeuronalNOS) (N-NOS) (nNOS) (Constitutive NOS) (NC-NOS) (bNOS).|
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000089250
UniprotKB/SwissProt: NOS1_HUMAN (P29475)
Function: 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.
