Direct real-time electrochemical measurements have offered new insight into the importance of free radical interplay in a number of cellular models, Initially the interrelationship between O-2(-) and NO generation in astrocytic, neuronal and mixed astrocytic/neuronal cell populations was examined. Results indicated a novel function for astrocytic nitric oxide synthase (cNOS) in regulating extracellular O-2(-) release and therefore controlling neuronal nitric oxide availability. Further, the pathological consequences of extracellular O-2(-) production on rat astrocytes was assessed, Findings show that extracellular O-2(-) generation initiated the production of NO by glial cells, Other findings facilitated by electrochemical measurements included the characterisation of a novel motor neuron like cell line for its ability to produce O-2(-) and NO in response to extracellular glutamate and AMPA, the interaction of O-2(-) with NO in an animal models of migraine headache and the modulatory effect of alpha -melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha -MSH) on NO production by human epidermal melanocytes.
