    Nitrophorins are nitric oxide (NO) transport proteins from the saliva of blood-feeding insects, which act as vasodilators and anti-platelet agents. Rhodnius prolixus, an insect that carries the trypanosome that causes Chagas' disease, releases four NO-loaded nitrophorins during blood feeding, whereupon the ligand is released into the bloodstream or surrounding tissue of the host. Histamine, a signaling molecule released by the host upon tissue damage, is tightly bound by the nitrophorins; this may facilitate the release of NO and reduce inflammation in the host.
