Endocannabinoids seem to play a role in the modulation of alertness. Therefore, we measured cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R) protein by Western blot and messenger RNA (mRNA) by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction in the pons of rats across the 24-h period. We performed evaluations every 4 h beginning at 09:00 h. Rats were under a controlled(More)
It has been hypothesized that proteins modulate rapid eye movement sleep (REMS). Studies have shown an increase in the liberation of proteins in the mesencephalic reticular formation of cats during REMS. It has also been determined that protein-synthesis inhibitors diminish REMS and that protease-inhibitors increase this sleep phase. These and other studies(More)
