Nitric oxide (NO) is an important molecular messenger regulating the functions of a wide variety of cells and tissues. NO is synthesized from Image -arginine by a variety of isoforms of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). We have used Southern blotting analysis on DNAs obtained from a panel of human-rodent hybrid cell lines to map the gene encoding the inducible NOS (NOS2) to chromosome 17cen-17q11 and the gene encoding the endothelial form of NOS (NOS3) to chromosome 7. Fluorescence in situ hybridization using a NOS2 probe gave several signals in the 17p11-q11 pericentromeric region
