Under normal circumstances, production of NO by endothelial cells is not limited by supply of substrate. Endothelium-derived NO (EDNO) permeates biological membranes without hindrance and enters adjacent vascular smooth muscle cells, binding to the haem iron of the soluble enzyme, guanylate cyclase (GC). 6 Important vasoactive mediators released by the endothelium VASODILATORS VASOCONSTRICTORS Nitric oxide Endothelin (peptide) Prostacyclin Arachidonic acid metabolites Endothelium-dependent hyperpolarizing factor (chemical nature unknown) A diffusible factor released from hypoxic endothelial cells (unidentified) 28 Structural analogues of l-arginine, such as NG monomethyl-l-arginine, which inhibit production of EDNO by competing with l-arginine for the eNOS enzyme, cause a rise in total peripheral resistance and arterial blood pressure in vivo in most species examined.
