    Nitric oxide (NO), a gaseous free radical, is one of the ten smallest molecules found in nature. Although toxic, it is recognized to be a gasotransmitter that plays multiple roles in normal physiology. NO regulates vascular relaxation, controls inflammation, and suppresses expression of pro-inflammatory mediators in mast cells, macrophages, vascular smooth muscles, affects metabolism, insulin resistance, and has a role in type-2 diabetes. In this video, Dr. Sharon Glynn shares her presentation of "Influence of nitric oxide on prostate cancer initiation and progression".
