The nitric oxide synthase inhibitor -NAME suppresses androgen-induced male-like pseudocopulatory behavior in whiptail lizards
Brain Research, pp. 236-239, 2005.
The synthesis of nitric oxide by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS) is involved in the androgen-dependent gating of male-typical copulatory behavior, both centrally, particularly in the preoptic area, and peripherally, notably through its role in penile erection. In the all-female whiptail lizard species Cnemidophorus uniparens, indiv...More
