Nitric oxide synthase distribution in the goldfish Mauthner cell.

NADPH-diaphorase histochemical staining was used to assess the distribution of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the goldfish brain, with the emphasis on the Mauthner (M-) cell, a reticulospinal neuron, and its inputs. Labeling was specific for certain cell types, including the M-cell, which stained heavily. The reaction product in this neuron was… CONTINUE READING
