Synthesis of nitric oxide in CNS glial cells.


Attention has focused on particular neurons as the source of nitric oxide (NO) within the parenchyma of the CNS. In contrast, glial cells have been viewed mainly as potential reservoirs of L-arginine, the substrate for nitric oxide synthase (NOS), and as likely targets for neuronally derived NO because of their proximity and their expression of soluble… (More)
