The long-term response to neurotropic drugs depends on drug-induced neuroplasticity and underlying changes in gene expression. However, alterations in neuronal gene expression can be observed even following single injection. To investigate the extent of these changes, gene expression in the medial striatum and lumbar part of the spinal cord was monitored by cDNA microarray following single injection of morphine. Using robust and resistant linear regression (MM-estimator) with simultaneous…

Morphine‐induced Changes of Gene Expression in the Brain
TLDR
Temporal expression profiles during a chronic morphine application schedule revealed discrete and fluctuating expression of gene clusters such as transcription factors, G‐protein‐coupled receptors and neuropeptides, which suggest a persistent alteration of synaptic signalling after morphine treatment.
Intermittent administration of morphine alters protein expression in rat nucleus accumbens
TLDR
Several protein functional groups were found to be regulated in the morphine‐treated group, representing cytoskeletal proteins, proteins involved in neurotransmission, enzymes involved in energy metabolism and protein degradation, and a protein that regulates translation.
Effects of morphine on gene expression in the rat amygdala
TLDR
Analysis by means of reverse transcription real‐time PCR showed significant changes in abundance of five transcripts: γ protein kinase C (PKC), upstream binding factor 2 (UBF2), lysozyme, noggin and heat shock protein 70 (hsp70).
Morphine effects on striatal transcriptome in mice
TLDR
There are differences between strains in the magnitude of transcriptional response to acute morphine treatment and in the degree of tolerance in gene expression observed after chronic morphine treatment, indicating the possible involvement of GR-regulated genes in mediating behavioral response to morphine.
Cytoskeletal Genes Regulation by Chronic Morphine Treatment in Rat Striatum
TLDR
It is demonstrated that neuroadaptation to chronic morphine administration in rat striatum implies modifications of the expression pattern of several genes and proteins of the cytos skeleton and cytoskeleton-associated components.

TLDR
Many of the known molecular and cellular actions of morphine and some of the important gene expression changes that occur in response to morphine treatment underlie the alterations in neuronal excitability, cell morphology and cell birth or death responsible for producing morphine's rewarding effects.

Pattern of c-fos mRNA induction in rat brain by acute morphine.
TLDR
This study identifies brain regions that demonstrate specific induction of the IEG c-fos, a component of the AP-1 transcription factor, in response to acute morphine, and contrasts this induction with the stressful effects of the injection itself.

TLDR
Chronic morphine treatment alters the metabolism of uridine nucleotides but does not appear to alter the net synthesis of the total brain RNA.
