Great increase in antinociceptive potency of [Leu5]enkephalin after peptidase inhibition.
TLDR
It is shown that amastatin-, captopril-, and phosphoramidon-sensitive enzymes play important roles in the inactivation of short endogenous opioid peptides, such as penta-, hepta-, and octa-peptides, administered intra-third-ventricularly to rats. Expand
Ventral tegmental injection of nicotine induces locomotor activity and L-DOPA release from nucleus accumbens.
TLDR
Effects of nicotine systemically or locally on locomotor activity and L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) release were studied using microdialysis in the nucleus accumbens of freely moving rats to determine whether the release may be relevant to behavioral actions of nicotine. Expand
Comparison of noradrenergic and serotonergic antidepressants in reducing immobility time in the tail suspension test.
TLDR
The results suggest that a prolonged tail suspension test results in functional changes in the noradrenergic and serotonergic systems and alters the response to antidepressants. Expand
The enhancing effects of peptidase inhibitors on the antinociceptive action of [Met5]enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7 in rats.
TLDR
The present data, together with those obtained from previous studies, clearly show that amastatin-, captopril-, and phosphoramidon-sensitive enzymes play important roles in the inactivation of endogenous opioid peptides, such as [Met(5)]enkephalin-Arg(6)-Phe(7), and dynorphin A (1-8), administered intra-third-ventricularly to rats. Expand
[Met5]enkephalin-Arg-Gly-Leu-induced antinociception is greatly increased by peptidase inhibitors.
TLDR
Three types of enzymes, amastatin-, captopril- and phosphoramidon-sensitive enzymes, play important roles in the inactivation of endogenous opioid penta- and octa-peptides administered intra-third-ventricularly to rats. Expand
Eeffect of visual attention on the illusion of the phantom arm position
We researched that illusion generated by the visual information and skin contact sensation. Intensity of illusion is dependent on the style of stimulation. The meaning of consuiousness about theExpand
