Delta opioid receptors (DORs) are known to modulate multiple T-cell responses. However, little is known about the expression of these receptors. These studies evaluated the expression of DOR mRNA and protein after a single in vivo exposure to staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). SEB (20 microg, ip) significantly enhanced splenocyte DOR mRNA expression 8 and… CONTINUE READING
