The effects of a mixture of three peptidase inhibitors (PIs), amastatin, captopril and phosphoramidon, on methionine-enkephalin (Met-enk)-, beta-endorphin (beta-end)-, dynorphin-(1-13) (Dyn)- and electroacupuncture (EA)-induced antinociception were compared in rats. EA was performed by passing electric pulses (3 Hz, 0.1-msec duration, for 45 min) through acupuncture needles inserted into the Hoku-point. The antinociceptive effect was estimated by the hind paw pressure test. The antinociceptive… CONTINUE READING
