The distribution and co-localization of nitric oxide synthase and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide in nerves of the colons with Hirschsprung's disease

Abstract

The distribution and co-localization of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were examined by means of immunohistochemistry and NADPH diaphorase (NADPH-d) histochemistry in the gut of patients with Hirschsprung's disease. In the normoganglionic segment, many nitrergic nerve cells were localized in Auerbach's plexus and… (More)
