We determined the role of carboxyl-terminal regulation of NOPR (nociceptin, orphanin FQ receptor) signaling and function. We mutated C-terminal serine and threonine residues and examined their role in NOPR trafficking, homologous desensitization, and arrestin-dependent MAPK signaling. The NOPR agonist, nociceptin, caused robust NOPR-YFP receptor(More)
Monte Carlo methods can provide accurate p-value estimates of word counting test statistics and are easy to implement. They are especially attractive when an asymptotic theory is absent or when either the search sequence or the word pattern is too short for the application of asymptotic formulae. Naive direct Monte Carlo is undesirable for the estimation of(More)
