ABSTRACT
Nitric oxide is produced in high amount from the break down
of arginine by a group of enzyme called nitric oxide synthase. Nitric
oxide is an intercellular messenger that has been recognized as one of
the versatile player in the immune system. Cells of the innate immune
system such as macrophages, neutrophil and natural killer use patterns
recognition receptors to recognize the molecular patters associated with
pathogens. The specific role nitric oxide plays depend on the place of
its release which in the immune system inhibits the replication of
bacteria.
