Bradykinin as a pain mediator: receptors are localized to sensory neurons, and antagonists have analgesic actions.
Autoradiographic studies localize [3H]bradykinin receptor binding sites to the substantia gelatinosa, dorsal root, and a subset of small cells in both the dorsal root and trigeminal ganglia of theExpand

Role of serotonergic input in the regulation of the beta-adrenergic receptor-coupled adenylate cyclase system.
The action of desipramine on the norepinephrine-sensitive adenylate cyclase system and the density of beta-adrenergic receptors in rat cortex was studied after selective lesioning of serotonergicExpand

Distinct bradykinin receptors mediate stimulation of prostaglandin synthesis by endothelial cells and fibroblasts.
Bradykinin-stimulated prostaglandin synthesis was investigated in Swiss albino 3T3 fibroblasts (Swiss 3T3 cells) and bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells (CPAE). Previous studies have indicatedExpand

Pharmacologic profile of NPC 168 (naltrexone phenyl oxime), a novel compound with activity at opioid receptors
NPC 168 (naltrexone phenyl oxime) was synthesized as a novel opioid antagonist and evaluated in several in vitro and in vivo assays. NPC 168 inhibited binding to the mu, delta and kappa subtypes ofExpand
