Glutamate, nitric oxide and cell-cell signalling in the nervous system.

Abstract

Nitric oxide (NO) is a recently discovered and highly unorthodox messenger molecule. Current evidence indicates that, in the CNS, NO is produced enzymatically in postsynaptic structures in response to activation of excitatory amino acid receptors. It then diffuses out to act on neighbouring cellular elements, probably presynaptic nerve endings and astrocyte… (More)
