Title:
Colocalization of nitric oxide synthase and NADPH-diaphorase in rat adrenal gland.

Abstract:
The distribution and colocalization of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH)-diaphorase was studied in the neuronal elements of the adrenal gland of the rat. Ganglion cells and many nerve fibres in the gland showed both NOS-immunoreactivity and NADPH-diaphorase staining. The adrenal cortical cells showed NADPH-diaphorase staining but were not immunoreactive for NOS. Positive labelling for both NADPH-diaphorase and NOS was found in bundles and in single fibres with varicosities, preferentially located around the noradrenaline (NA)-storing cells. Adrenaline (A)-storing cells and ganglion cells in the medulla, along with the cortical cells and blood vessels in the zona glomerulosa, received relatively fewer positive fibres.
