Nitric oxide (NO), an important cellular messenger, has been linked to both neurodegenerative and neuroprotective actions. In the present review, we focus on recent data establishing a survival and differentiation role for NO in several neural in vitro and in vivo models. Nitric oxide has been found to be essential for survival of neuronal cell lines and primary neurons in culture under various death challenges. Furthermore, its lack may aggravate some neuropathological conditions in… CONTINUE READING
