IN THE NEOCORTEX, NEURONAL NITRIC OXIDE (NO) SYNTHASE (NNOS) IS ESSENTIALLY EXPRESSED IN TWO CLASSES OF GABAERGIC NEURONS: type I neurons displaying high levels of expression and type II neurons displaying weaker expression. Using immunocytochemistry in mice expressing GFP under the control of the glutamic acid decarboxylase 67k (GAD67) promoter, we studied the distribution of type I and type II neurons in the barrel cortex and their expression of parvalbumin (PV), somatostatin (SOM), and… CONTINUE READING
