A detailed study about the distribution of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoforms, neuronal NOS (nNOS) and macrophagic NOS (mNOS), in normal rat retina was performed using immunocytochemistry by employing specific antibodies. The nNOS immunocytochemistry showed immunoreactive amacrine cells, fibres in inner and outer plexiform layers (IPL and OPL) and an immunostained band corresponding to inner photoreceptor segments (IPS). This was in agreement with NADPH-d histochemical results. mNOS immunoreactivity was found in cell somas localized in both, inner nuclear layer (INL) and ganglion cell layer (GCL), in slender Müller cell processes along IPL and GCL and also in the band corresponding to IPS. A different distribution of nNOS and mNOS was found in rat retina although both isoforms of NOS are co-localized in IPS.
