Nitric oxide (NO which is formed in the vascular endothelium plays a crucial role in the regulation of vascular structure and function. NO has been named an “endogenous anti-atherogenic molecule” due to its diverse regulatory functions in vascular homeostasis. NO is formed by the enzyme NO synthase (NOS) from the amino acid precursor L-arginine. NOS activity is inhibited by asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), an endogenous inhibitor of NOS.
The effects of ADMA on NO synthesis and NO-mediated pathophysiological processes have been described in numerous experimental and clinical studies, including samples with hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, chronic heart failure, chronic renal failure and other internal disorders. Elevated ADMA levels are a risk factor for future cardiovascular events and total mortality, as evidenced by prospective clinical studies comprising more than 10,000 participants. Thus, studies have shown that ADMA has diagnostic relevance as a novel cardiovascular risk marker.
Importantly, high ADMA levels and low L-arginine/ADMA ratio were both independent predictors of death in the community-based Framingham Offspring Study. As ADMA competes with L-arginine for binding to NO synthase, many scientists suggest that the L-arginine/ADMA ratio is a better index of NOS substrate availability and, thus, functional integrity of the NOS pathway, than L-arginine levels alone.
