Blockade of the nociceptin/orphanin FQ/NOP receptor system in the rat ventrolateral periaqueductal gray potentiates DAMGO analgesia.

Abstract

Nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) and its receptor (NOP) are involved in various biological functions including pain. High density of NOP receptor has been found in the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray (vlPAG), the main output pathway involved in descending pain-control system. The aim of our work was to evaluate the involvement of the N/OFQ/NOP system in the… (More)
