BACKGROUND Acetylcholine causes synthesis of nitric oxide in vascular endothelium, and presumptive evidence in vivo suggests spinally released acetylcholine causes antinociception and increased sympathetic nervous system activity via a nitric oxide mechanism. The purpose of this study was to determine, using a recently described bioassay system, whether acetylcholine stimulates nitric oxide release from spinal cord tissue in vitro. METHODS Rat thoracolumbar spinal cord slices were incubated… CONTINUE READING
