The opioid system modulates complex processes such as neuroendocrine function, analgesia, immunity, and cardiovascular regulation. A challenge in the field of neuroscience has been the molecular characterization of the opioid receptors. The recent isolation and sequencing of the genes and cDNAs encoding the opioid receptors permit studies of structure, function, and the cellular localization of these receptors. This chapter describes recent studies on the characterization and chromosomal…

Cell biological studies using cultured heterologous cell models and primary cultures of central nervous system neurons have identified multiple subcellular locations at which specific aspects of opioid receptor signaling and membrane trafficking are regulated.

Alcohol and gene expression in the central nervous system.

Although functional genomic experiments (transcriptome analysis) have failed to identify a single alcoholism gene, they have illuminated important pathways and gene products that may contribute to the risk of alcohol abuse and alcoholism.

Although functional genomic experiments (transcriptome analysis) have failed to identify a single alcoholism gene, they have illuminated important pathways and gene products that may contribute to the risk of alcohol abuse and alcoholism.

Central Nervous System Alterations in Drug Abuse

Based on animal experiments, the abuse of amphetamine, methamphetamine, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) has been related to neurotoxicity in human long-term abusers and to the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

Primary structures and expression from cDNAs of rat opioid receptor delta- and mu-subtypes.

RNA blot hybridization analysis revealed that cerebrum and brainstem contain both ROR-A and R OR-B mRNAs, whereas neither ROR/ROR-B can be detected in cerebellum, and the ligand-binding properties of R OR/B expressed from the cloned cDNAs in Chinese hamster ovary cells correspond most closely to those of the pharmacologically defined delta- and mu-opioid receptor subtypes.

By using a mouse δ opioid receptor cDNA as a probe, a κ opioid receptor gene was isolated from a human genomic library. Reverse transcriptase/PCR was subsequently used to isolate the corresponding

The basal ganglia provide a neuroanatomical system that is well defined anatomically, in terms of the basic units which comprise it, demonstrates complex neurotransmitter-receptor interactions, and has been functionally implicated in sensory-motor integration and motivated behaviors.
