Nitricoxide (NO) is one of the most important molecules that are responsible for the vasodilator tone required for the regulation of blood pressure [ 1 ]. NO is synthesized from L -arginine by a family of enzymes
calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessel walls, allowing vascular and other smooth muscle cells to relax and result in lower blood pressure ( 21 ).
Nitricoxide is an endogenous endothelium-derived vasodilator. Although efforts are
