1. The present study was designed to examine the nitric oxide synthase activities (constitutive and inducible) in the site of injury in response to Th10-Th11 spinal cord hemisection and, to determine whether unilateral disconnection of the spinal cord influences the NOS pools on the contra- and ipsilateral sides in segments located far away from the(More)
It was shown that 15-min electrical stimulation of the rat sciatic nerve greatly increases the in vitro measured sensitivity of lactate formation, glucose transport, and glycogen synthesis to insulin, impaired by previous tenotomy. The insulin sensitivity of all these processes was, however, still below that found in the stimulated intact soleus muscle.(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT The loss of descending control after spinal cord injury (SCI) and incessant stimulation of Ia monosynaptic pathway, carrying proprioceptive impulses from the muscles and tendons into the spinal cord, evoke exaggerated α-motoneuron activity leading to increased reflex response. Previous results from our laboratory have shown that Ia(More)
Using immunohistochemistry, we detected the expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in ventral medullary gigantocellular reticular nuclei and in the lumbosacral spinal cord 10 days after thoracic transection in experimental rabbits. We tried to determine whether neurons located below the site of injury are protected by the calcium binding(More)
