Glutamate is critically involved in opioid addiction. It has been suggested that neurotransmitter receptors expression in peripheral blood lymphocytes may reflect brain status. In the present study, using Real-time PCR, the mRNA expression of NR2D and NR3B subunits of NMDA glutamate receptor has been investigated in peripheral blood lymphocytes of four(More)
Glutamate receptors especially the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-activated ones have a key role in the development and maintenance of opioid addiction. It has been proposed that the neurotransmitter receptors expression in peripheral blood lymphocytes may be parallel to their expression state in the brain. This study was designed to evaluate the possibility(More)
