- ... Nitric oxide (NO), produced by nitric oxide synthases (NOS) from L-arginine, plays important roles in a wide range of physiological processes. However, little is known about ectothermic species. To investigate the response of NO/NOS system in adaptation to different altitudes in Phrynocephalus genus, the red tail toad-headed lizard Phrynocephalus erythrurus that live at 4500–5300 m on the Qinghai- ...
