Methionine enkephalin (ME = YGGFM) was measured in five individual human post-mortem pituitaries using four different analytical methods, with the objective of comparing the molecular specificities of the methods. Radioreceptor assay (RRA) used a receptor-rich preparation from brain and [3H]etorphine as radioligand to determine ME-like receptoractivity (ME… CONTINUE READING
