In the mammalian retina there are two populations of nitric oxide synthase-containing amacrine cells that stain with the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase reaction. To determine the response of these neurons to light, immunoreactivity to Fos proteins was used as a marker of synaptic activation. Fos immunoreactivity is absent in dark-adapted retinas, but 70% of large, Type I nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase-reactive amacrine cells and 5-10% of the… CONTINUE READING
