Nitric oxide (NO) is a bioactive gas in the body and plays a crucial role in maintaining the homeostasis of the cardiovascular system. It can be synthesized by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), neuronal NO synthase (nNOS), and inducible NO synthase (iNOS), which convert arginine into citrulline and produce NO in several cell types. In addition to its key role in regulating the cardiovascular function, NO has been reported to be involved in the pathological processes of a variety of human diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, inflammatory diseases, cancer, and neurological diseases. Given the importance of NOSs in the pathophysiology of human diseases, these enzymes are considered potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of diverse human pathologies. The Special Issue entitled "Nitric Oxide Synthases: Regulation and Function" aims to provide a research platform for the collection of the latest review and original research articles covering all aspects of these enzymes.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
