Neuronal nitric oxide is a non-adrenergic non-cholinergic neurotransmitter in the enteric nervous system and plays a role in a variety of enteropathies including Crohn's and Chagas' diseases, ulcerative colitis, diabetes, atrophy and hypertrophy. The content of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the colon and the caecum from pigs infected with Schistosoma japonicum was studied using immunohistochemical and histochemical staining for nNOS and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate… CONTINUE READING
