Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are constitutively expressed in hypothalamic cells. However, phenotypic and functional aspects of these cells remain unknown. We have studied the expression pattern of these two molecules in hypothalamic cells expressing corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and arginin-vasopressin (AVP), two major(More)
PURPOSE Nitric oxide (NO), a short-lived radical synthesized from L-arginine by activation of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS), has been implicated in the pathophysiology of epilepsy by some investigators. However, the current data about NO and NOS in epilepsy are controversial and are derived only from animal models of epilepsy. In this study we(More)
