Different lines of evidence indicate that ATP and nitric oxide (NO) play key roles in mediating neuronal responses after cell damage. Purinergic and nitrergic interactions have been proposed in non neural tissues physiological functions and, in different experimental models of brain injury, both purinergic and nitrergic activations have been reported. The present study was planned to ascertain possible relations of these two systems after brain damage. Variations in the expression of the nitric… CONTINUE READING
