Strosznajder, "Cyclic GMP metabolism and its role in brain physiology, " Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, vol.
As vascular tone is finely regulated by cyclic nucleotides levels in the vascular smooth muscle, we have investigated the effect of BFBO on relaxations induced by agents elevating either cyclic GMP or cyclic AMP.
Cyclic GMP levels were significantly (P < 0.001) higher in PECGGp-treated group (2.7 [+ or -] 0.13 pmol/mg) compared to PECGGp-untreated group (0.53 [+ or -] 0.41 pmol/mg).
To make this discovery, Pfeifer and colleagues used mice to show that cyclic GMP reduced the secretion of pro-inflammatory hormones, which, in turn, shifted the "color code" of fat from white to brown.
Evidence that an L-arginine/nitric oxide dependent elevation of tissue cyclic GMP content is involved in depression of vascular reactivity by endotoxin.
Several heat-stable peptides produced by enteropathogenic bacteria are capable of inducing intestinal secretion via the intracellular second messenger, cyclic GMP (Hughes et al., 1978).
A compound called cyclic guanine monophosphate (cyclic GMP) plays a role in regulating circadian rhythm.
The enzyme breaks down a body chemical known as cyclic GMP, produced during arousal, which causes changes in the muscle and blood vessels leading to an erection.
Research has already shown that the increase in blood flow to the genitals, fundamental to sexual arousal, is determined by the body's ability to synthesise and release nitric oxide, which contains cyclic GmP. This element is responsible for relaxing the smooth muscle that controls the dilation of the blood vessels, leading to an increase in blood flow.
Exisulind and other of Cell Pathways compounds, which inhibit a cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase and cell growth, and induce apoptosis (programmed cell death), but do not inhibit COX pathways, are potentially useful for the treatment of precancerous and cancerous lesions.
Viagra blocks an enzyme called cyclic GMP, which in turn promotes erection.
The drug is called sildenfil and works by increasing levels of cyclic GMP, which sounds good.
