The objective of this study was to explore the potential role of G-protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) in the progression of cannabinoid 2 receptor (CB2) agonist-induced analgesic effects of bone cancer pain. Female Sprague–Dawley rats, weighing 160–180 g, were utilized to establish a model of bone cancer pain induced by intra-tibia inoculation of(More)
Τreatment of bone cancer pain remains a challenge, while the mechanisms causing the pain remain elusive. We demonstrated that the expression of the N‑methyl‑D‑aspartate (NMDA) receptor NR2B subunit was upregulated in mice with bone cancer pain. Kinesin superfamily protein 17 (KIF17), a recently characterized member of the kinesin superfamily proteins, has(More)
BACKGROUND The ultra-short-acting mu-opioid receptor (MOR) agonist remifentanil induces postoperative hyperalgesia both in preclinical and clinical research studies. However, the precise mechanisms remain unclear, although changes in opioid receptor expression might be a correlative feature. Neuron-restrictive silencer factor (NRSF) functions as a crucial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the changes of Mu-opioid receptor (Mor) and neuron-restrictive silencer factor (NRSF) in periaquductal gray (PAG) in mouse models of remifentanil-induced postoperative hyperalgesia. METHODS Thirty-two Kun-Ming mice were randomly divided into 4 groups (8 mice in each group): Group C (mice underwent a sham procedure and saline was(More)
