cGMP: Generators, Effectors and Therapeutic Implications by Harald H. H. W. Schmidt, Franz B. Hofmann, Johannes-Peter

By Harald H. H. W. Schmidt, Franz B. Hofmann, Johannes-Peter Stasch

After the invention of endogenous NO formation within the overdue '80s and the 1998 Nobel Prize in body structure or medication, many researchers and physicians back got interested within the NO/sGC interplay and cGMP-dependent signaling. This publication is an enthusiastic social gathering of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and amply illustrates the significance of this box of technological know-how to sufferers and how during which the sector has advanced. it truly is completely dedicated to this fascinating and demanding signaling molecule, addressing all contemporary advances in figuring out guanylate cyclase rules, NO/sGC interactions, cGMP effector mechanisms and their pathophysiological and pharmacological implications. specific cognizance can also be given to medical purposes of the unconventional cGMP-elevating medicinal drugs that are at the horizon, therefore spanning the continuum from easy technology to sanatorium.

Although the function of the main NO receptor GC (NO-GC) is well established, the particular tasks of the NO receptor isoforms (NO-GC1 and NO-GC2) are unclear and NO targets other than NO-GC have been postulated.
