Nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) and nocistatin are derived from the same precursor peptide, prepronociceptin. N/OFQ and nocistatin have been postulated to participate in pain modulation. In this study, we investigated whether the prepronociceptin, N/OFQ and nocistatin concentrations in the brain and spinal cord would be altered in chronic constriction injury(More)
Abnormalities in glutamate signaling and glutamate toxicity are thought to be important in the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder (BD). Whilst previous studies have found brain white matter changes in BD, there is paucity of data about how glutamatergic genes affect brain white matter integrity in BD. Based on extant neuroimaging data, we hypothesized that(More)
