Effects of endogenous opioid peptides (leucine5-enkephalin; methionine5-enkephalin; and beta-endorphin) and morphine on isoleucine5-angiotensin II (All)-stimulated increase in plasma vasopressin concentration, blood pressure and drinking behavior were characterized in conscious rats. Plasma vasopressin concentration, drinking frequency and latency were(More)
Intracerebroventricular (i.v.t.) administration of beta-endorphin or leucine5-enkephalin inhibited drinking behavior, the pressor response and increased plasma vasopressin concentration stimulated by an acute elevation in CSF sodium chloride concentration (10 microliter, 1 M NaCl i.v.t.). These effects of endogenous opioid peptides were prevented by(More)
