nNOS is expressed in the sarcolemma of control and CIM muscle. Cross-sections of medial gastrocnemius muscle were stained with the antibodies to nNOS as well as dystrophin to mark muscle surface membrane. In both control and CIM, nNOS is expressed in the surface membrane. The myofiber cross-sections are much smaller in CIM muscle, due to the previously reported muscle atrophy in the disease [10].
