Abstract

NADPH-diaphorase reactivity and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) immunostaining have been localised in sections of bovine adrenal glands. Both were present in nerve fibres and terminals in the subcapsular region and running between zona glomerulosa cells, amongst the medullary chromaffin cells, between large ganglion cells in rare encapsulated medullary ganglia and in large nerve bundles running through the cortex. Occasional isolated fibres were stained in deeper cortical layers. Both NADPH-diaphorase reactivity and nNOS immunoreactivity were present in a population of ganglion cells located individually or in small groups at the medullary-cortical boundary. NADPH-diaphorase reactivity..
