In the retina, nitric oxide (NO) functions in network coupling, light adaptation, neurotransmitter receptor function, and synaptic release. Neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) is present in the retina of every vertebrate species investigated. However, although nNOS can be found in every retinal cell type, little is known about the production of NO in specific cells or about the diffusion of NO within the retina. We used diaminofluorescein-2 (DAF-2) to image real-time NO production in turtle… CONTINUE READING
