Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) are endothelium-derived mediators that play important roles in vascular homeostasis. This review is focused on the role and reciprocal interactions between NO and ET-1 in health and diseases associated with endothelium dysfunction. We will also discuss the clinical significance of NO donors and drugs that antagonize ET receptors.
