Abstract: Skeletal muscle failure is a frequent manifestation of sepsis that affects prognosis and rehabilitation by impairing respiration and ambulation. Animal studies have shown that the inducible NO synthase (NOS2) is expressed in skeletal muscles during sepsis, likely affecting muscular function, by promoting the formation of the strong oxidant peroxynitrite. In contrast, whether human skeletal muscle expresses a functional NOS2 in similar conditions is unknown. We studied NOS2 expression (mRNA and protein) and act…
