One of us showed previously [Cuajungco and Lees (1998) Brain Res. 799, 188-129] that nitric oxide injected into the cerebrum in vivo causes zinc staining to appear in the somata of neurons and suggested that this staining of somata might be accompanied by a depletion (release) of zinc from axon terminals. In the present study, we confirm earlier results and report that there is a dramatic loss (apparent release) of histologically reactive zinc from the boutons of zinc-containing axons induced… CONTINUE READING
