The relationship between N-acetylserotonin (NAS) in the central nervous system (CNS) and responses to pain was investigated. Using the rat tail-flick model, we initially replicated the work of others showing that intraventricular (IVC) injection of a dipeptide structurally similar to both NAS and serotonin was capable of inducing analgesia in the rat. We(More)

1. A specific anti-NAS antibody and fluorescein-labelled second antibody were employed to investigate the presence of NAS in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus as a function of age. 2. Immunoreactive NAS (INAS) was present in the granular cell layer of the dentate gyrus as early as 20 days postconception. 3. INAS appears to be present primarily in cell(More)
