Nerve growth factor (NGF) acts through trkA receptors to serve as a trophic factor for cholinergic neurones in the medial septal nucleus (MSN) and vertical limb of the diagonal band (VDB). Herein, we show that brain nitric oxide synthase (NOS), which synthesizes the neuromodulator nitric oxide, is selectively expressed in a large fraction of trkA-containing… CONTINUE READING
