Changes of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase (NADPH-d) activity in the lumbosacral intermediolateral (IML) neurons of the rat were examined for approximately 10 weeks after pelvic nerve transection. Both the number and the staining intensity of NADPH-d-positive neurons in the IML region increased remarkably 1 week after pelvic axotomy; the number of darkly NADPH-d-stained cells on the axotomized side was approximately 2.2-fold greater than on the control side. The number of… CONTINUE READING
