Besides eNOS in the vasculature of muscles, nNOS is found within the
muscle fibers themselves. Production of NO tends to decrease force of
contraction. I believe "long ago"--as long ago as this very recent
field allows--this negative ionotropic (right word???) function had
been studied in heart muscle; more recently in skeletal muscle.
Why don't you do Medline search on (skeletal muscle) AND (NO or NOS)?
