For NOS3 rs1799983, the minor allele T is the risk allele which was non-significantly (0.202 vs.
Of detected genes, mammary serum amyloid A3.2 (M-SAA3.2), sarcosine dehydrogenase (SARDH), LAP, NOS3, claudin 6 (CLDN6), and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 16 (GALNTL1), were found to be the most significantly detected in meta-analysis (Combined p-value: 0.0).
Quantitative RT-PCR was performed using the TaqMan assay according to the manufacturer's instructions for gene expression quantification of NOS1, NOS2, and NOS3. Reactions were performed on the StepOnePlus (Applied Biosystems, USA) system.

NOS 1 and NOS3 may themselves be induced under certain conditions (such as pregnancy) [15] and NOS2 is expressed constantly in certain sites (such as basal skin keratinocytes and salivary duct cells).
Also, in north Indian women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, no association was found between the presence of NOS3 gene polymor phism with these disorders (11).
La produccion del NO es un proceso complejo, su sintesis esta catalizada por al menos tres isoformas de la sintasa del oxido nitrico (NOS); dos de estas isoformas son constitutivas y calcio dependientes, siendo una de ellas originalmente descrita en las celulas endoteliales (eNOS, NOS3) y la otra en el tejido nervioso (nNOS, NOS1), las cuales han sido luego halladas en otros tejidos; la tercera isoforma (iNOS, NOS2) es inducible por citocinas inflamatorias como la interleucina-1[beta] o el factor de necrosis tumoral alfa (TNF-[alfa]) en los macrofagos y otros tipos de celulas (12, 16).
The NOS3 gene encodes calcium-regulated endothelial nitric oxide synthase that is capable of producing nitric oxide in blood vessels.
Three forms have been described: neuronal (nNOS, NOS1), endothelial (eNOS, NOS3) and inducible (iNOS, NOS2).
In addition, hypoxia tended to increase VEGF receptor Flt1 (P<0.06, 139 [+ or -] 9%), and tended to decrease VEGF receptor KDR (P=0.07; 82 [+ or -] 4%) and endothelial nitric oxide receptor (NOS3; P<0.1, 87 [+ or -] 7%) mRNA expression in COT explants.
