The effect of nitric oxide donors on nitric oxide synthase-expressing myenteric neurones in culture.

Previously, we demonstrated that intestinal inflammation leads to a postinflammatory loss of nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-expressing myenteric neurones and motility disturbances. Here, we investigated whether high NO concentrations could be responsible for the decrease in NOS neurones. Myenteric neurone cultures, prepared from guinea-pig small intestine… CONTINUE READING
