AbstractNeuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) is induced after axonal injury. The role of induced nNOS in injured neurons is not well established. In the present study, we investigated the co-expression of nNOS with GAP-43 in spinal motoneurons following axonal injury. The role of induced nNOS was discussed and evaluated. In normal rats, spinal motoneurons do not express nNOS or GAP-43. Following spinal root avulsion, expression of nNOS and GAP-43 were induced and colocalized in avulsed motoneurons. Reimplantation of avulsed roots resulted in a remarkable decrease of GAP-43- and nNOS-IR in the soma of the injured motoneurons. A number of GAP-43-IR regenerating motor axons were found in the reimplanted nerve. In contrast, the nNOS-IR was absent in reimplanted nerve. These results suggest that expression of GAP-43 in avulsed motoneurons is related to axonal regeneration whereas nNOS is not. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
