Topical application of neuronal nitric oxide synthase inhibitor accelerates cutaneous barrier recovery and prevents epidermal hyperplasia induced by barrier disruption.


The effect of nitric oxide (NO) on skin barrier recovery rate was evaluated in hairless mouse. Topical application of an NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor and a neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) inhibitor accelerated the barrier recovery after tape stripping, whereas application of an inducible NOS (iNOS) inhibitor had no effect. After tape stripping, the… (More)
