Nitric oxide (NO) generated constitutively within the heart has long been known to influence myocardial function; however, the precise nature of these effects has been controversial--at least in part--because of the experimental use of non-isoform-selective inhibitors of NO synthases (NOS) and unwarranted extrapolation from results obtained with NO donors. Recent studies using NOS-selective inhibitors and genetically modified models are beginning to redress the balance. It is well established...Expand abstract
