Stimulation of nitric oxide-cGMP pathway excites striatal cholinergic interneurons via protein kinase G activation.


Conflicting data have been collected so far on the action of nitric oxide (NO) on cholinergic interneurons of the striatum. In the present in vitro electrophysiological study, we reported that intracellularly recorded striatal cholinergic interneurons are excited by both hydroxylamine and S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine, two NO donors. This excitation… (More)
