Abstract: Background - Nitric oxide ( NO) activates soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC), a heterodimer composed of alpha- and beta-subunits, to produce cGMP. NO reduces pulmonary vascular remodeling, but the role of sGC in vascular responses to acute and chronic hypoxia remains incompletely elucidated. We therefore studied pulmonary vascular responses to acute and chronic hypoxia in wild-type (WT) mice and mice with a nonfunctional alpha 1-subunit (sGC alpha 1(-/-)).
