Nitric oxide (NO) is a neuroactive substance of high potency. Physiological results revealed the involvement of NO in circadian regulation of rats. Since neuronal structures containing NO-synthase (NOS) were previously not found in the circadian oscillator, the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), in this species but are present in the hamster, we investigated the distribution of NO-producing structures in the rat SCN by Western blot analysis, immunohistochemistry of NOS, and by… CONTINUE READING
