Recent molecular cloning studies have established the existence of a third rat galanin receptor subtype, GalR3, however its precise distribution in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) is not well established. In the present study, we examined the regional and cellular distribution of GalR3 mRNA in the CNS of the rat by in situ hybridization. Our(More)
Several peptide fragments are produced by proteolytic cleavage of the opioid peptide precursor proenkephalin A, and among these are a number of enkephalin fragments, in particular bovine adrenal medulla peptide 22 (BAM22). These peptide products have been implicated in diverse biological functions, including analgesia. We have cloned a newly identified(More)
