We evaluated the involvement of nitric oxide (NO) in the laryngeal innervation of rats using NADPH-diaphorase (NADPH-d) histochemistry and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) immunohistochemistry. The findings obtained by NADPH-d histochemistry were identical with those obtained by nNOS immunohistochemistry, indicating that NADPH-d is nNOS in the laryngeal innervation system. We found NADPH-d-positive nerve fibers in every region of the larynx. In the epithelia of the mucosa, a small number… CONTINUE READING
