In this brief review, the various aspects of the enzymology, biochemistry, and molecular pharmacology of the NO-dependent signal transduction system in the penis have been discussed. Scientific investigations of this system have certainly provided academic excitement while affording practical applications for the clinical management of erectile dysfunction. Recent and ongoing discoveries relating to this system may eventuate in the identification and manipulation of a host of molecular sites for therapeutic benefit.
