Hyperalgesia and decreased neuronal nitric oxide synthase in diabetic rats.


To evaluate the role of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the pathogenesis of diabetic neuropathy, we investigated nociception and nNOS expression in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) of rats with streptozocin-induced diabetes. Paw withdrawal threshold to noxious mechanical stimuli was decreased in both L-NAME-treated and diabetic rats. The number of NADPH… (More)
