    J Comp Neurol 427:581-92. 2000
    ..The temporal and spatial patterns of nNOS expression reported here match more closely the time course of pathway refinement in the SC, providing additional evidence for the involvement of nitric oxide in this process...

    C A Scheiner
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy and the Neuroscience Center, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, 1901 Perdido Street, New Orleans, LA 70112 1393, USA
    Brain Res Dev Brain Res 118:217-20. 1999
    ..We therefore conclude that nitric oxide does not mediate refinement of this cholinergic pathway...

    H H Wu
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy and the Neuroscience Center, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, 1901 Perdido Street, New Orleans, LA, USA
    Brain Res Dev Brain Res 120:105-11. 2000
    ..These results show that refinement of the IRP is delayed when expression of eNOS and nNOS is disrupted, presumably to axons with uncorrelated activity because nitric oxide serves as a repellant molecule during normal development...
  4. ncbi request reprint A web-accessible digital atlas of the distribution of nitric oxide synthase in the mouse brain
    R J Cork
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, Louisiana State University Medical Center, New Orleans 70112, USA
    Prog Brain Res 118:37-50. 1998
    ..This observation is especially relevant given that synaptic plasticity in these regions is reported to be nitric-oxide dependent...

    H H Wu
    Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy and the Neuroscience Center, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, Louisiana 70112, USA
    J Comp Neurol 426:651-65. 2000
    ..The IRP in normal mice is also more exuberant at early ages, and the process of refinement more protracted than has been previously reported, suggesting that there is a prolonged critical period of synaptic plasticity...

  1. Enhancements to a human embryo, serial-section database

    ..Any such improvement in general levels of understanding about human development can only improve the reproductive health of our population and levels ofpre- and post-natal care. ..
