The endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) has been implicated in the rapid (Frank-Starling) and slow (Anrep) cardiac response to stretch. Our work and that of others have demonstrated that a neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) localized to the myocardium plays an important role in the regulation of cardiac function and calcium handling. However, the effect of nNOS on the myocardial response to stretch has yet to be investigated. Recent evidence suggests that the stretch-induced release o...Expand abstract
