Gene expression profiling revealed that expression of the gene encoding neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) was down-regulated in neural stem cells migrating toward tumor cells. Using nNOS inhibitors and nNOS siRNAs, we demonstrated that nNOS is a relevant regulator in controlling tumor tropism of neural stem cells. This finding suggests a novel application of nNOS inhibitors in neural stem cell-mediated cancer therapy.
