BACKGROUND Different mechanisms of diabetic-induced NO dysfunction have been proposed and central to most of them are significant changes in eNOS function as the rate-limiting step in NO bioavailability. eNOS exists in both monomeric and dimeric conformations, with the dimeric form catalyzing the synthesis of nitric oxide, while the monomeric form catalyzes(More)
1. Extracellular recording of spontaneously active nucleus accumbens neurons was employed to characterize interactions of the mixed opioid buprenorphine and selective dopamine receptor antagonists. 2. Buprenorphine caused depression of single-unit activity at all doses tested but evoked facilitation only at low doses. 3. In experiments with the D1(More)
