To determine if nitric oxide (NO) and Fos immunoreactivity induced by noxious stimulation were colocalized in spinothalamic neurons, double-staining immunocytochemical techniques were combined with retrograde neuroanatomical tracing procedures. Initial studies on three rats demonstrated that Fos and nitric oxide synthase (NOS), the synthesizing enzyme for nitric oxide, did not coexist in spinothalamic tract neurons. However, some spinothalamic neurons were found to contain NOS and some NOS… CONTINUE READING
