Nitric oxide-mediated cGMP synthesis in oligodendrocytes in the developing rat brain.

We investigated the nature of cGMP-synthesizing cells in the developing rat forebrain using cGMP-immunocytochemistry in combination with in vitro incubation of brain slices. When brain slices of immature rats, aged between 1 and 4 weeks, were incubated with sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a nitric oxide (NO) donor compound, in the presence of the… CONTINUE READING
