Literature associating NOS2 and malaria

NOS2 [ENSP00000327251]

Nitric oxide synthase, inducible; Produces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body . In macrophages, NO mediates tumoricidal and bactericidal actions. Also has nitrosylase activity and mediates cysteine S-nitrosylation of cytoplasmic target proteins such PTGS2/COX2 (By similarity). As component of the iNOS-S100A8/9 transnitrosylase complex involved in the selective inflammatory stimulus-dependent S-nitrosylation of GAPDH on 'Cys-247' implicated in regulation of the GAIT complex activity and probably multiple targets including ANXA5, EZR, MSN and VIM . Involved in inflammation, enhances the synthesis of proinflammatory mediators such as IL6 and IL8 . ECO:0000269|PubMed:25417112, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7531687,
