Nitric Oxide and Neurodegenerative Diseases Selective neuronal death is typical of most neurodegenerative diseases including PD, AD, ALS and MS (Guix et al., ).

The participation of Cited by: Nitric oxide synthases (NOS) from endothelial tissue (eNOS), neural tissue (nNOS), and an inducible, Ca 2+-independent nitric oxide synthase called iNOS produce nitric oxide, NO, by converting l-arginine.
