Nitric oxide synthase-immunoreactivity (NOS-IR) was detected in strands of nerve fibers entering the rat superior cervical ganglia (SCG) and in nerve fibers forming a plexus beneath the capsule of adrenal glands. Within the SCG, varicose NOS-IR fibers encircled virtually all postganglionic neurons and small diameter cells, presumably small intensely fluorescent (SIF) cells. Perikarya of SIF cells exhibited strong NOS-IR, whereas the level appeared to be low in postganglionic neurons… CONTINUE READING
