Western blot analysis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells treated with calyculin A (100 nM) for 30 min. (lanes 1, 3, 5 & 7) then the blots were treated with lambda phosphatase (lanes 2, 4, 6 & 8). The blots were probed with anti-endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) (C-terminal region) (lanes 1 & 2), anti-eNOS (Ser-632) (lanes 3 & 4), anti-eNOS (Ser-1177) (lanes 5 & 6) and anti-eNOS (a.a. 1172-1181) (lanes 7 & 8).

eNOS (C-terminal region)
Nitric oxide (NO) has a broad range of biological activities and is implicated in signaling pathways in phylogenetically diverse species. Nitric oxide synthases (NOS), the enzymes responsible for synthesis of NO, are homodimers whose monomers are themselves two fused enzymes: a cytochrome reductase and a cytochrome that requires three cosubstrates (L-arginine, NADPH, and oxygen) and five cofactors or prosthetic groups (FAD, FMN, calmodulin, tetrahydrobiopterin, and heme). Several distinct NOS isoforms are produced from three distinct genes. The inducible form of NOS, iNOS (NOS-II), is Ca2+ independent and is expressed in a broad range of cell types, and two constitutive Ca2+/CaM-dependent forms of NOS: nNOS (bNOS, NOS-I) identified in neurons and eNOS (ecNOS, NOS-III) identified in endothelial cells. Regulation of eNOS activity occurs through phosphorylation at multiple sites. Phosphorylation of Ser-633 (mouse Ser-632) in the FMN binding domain increases eNOS activity and may be important for the maintenance of NO synthesis after initial activation by Ca2+ flux and Ser-1177 phosphorylation.
Antigen Affinity Purified
eNOS synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponds to amino acids from the C-terminal region in human eNOS. This sequence is conserved in rat and mouse eNOS.
