Pre-embedding electron microscopic immunocytochemistry was used to examine the ultrastructure of neurons containing nitric oxide synthase and to evaluate their synaptic relationships with target neurons in the striatum and sensorimotor cerebral cortex. Intense nitric oxide synthase immunoreactivity was found by light and electron microscopy in a type of aspiny neuron scattered in these two regions. The intensity of the labeling was uniform in the soma, dendrites and axon terminals of these… CONTINUE READING
