Autoradiographic distribution of substance P receptors in rat central nervous system.

Abstract

Among various neuropeptides present in the central nervous system (CNS), substance P, an undecapeptide, is of great interest as a putative pain neurotransmitter. Substance P is present within numerous intrinsic neural pathways throughout the CNS. Several groups have attempted to label substance P receptors on brain membranes by ligand binding techniques… (More)
