The effects of the arousal‐promoting peptide hypocretin on brain stem G protein activation and ACh release were examined using 16 adult Sprague‐Dawley rats. In vitro[35S]GTPγS autoradiography was used to test the hypothesis that hypocretin‐1‐stimulated G protein activation is concentration‐dependent and blocked by the hypocretin receptor antagonist SB‐334867. Activated G proteins were quantified in dorsal raphe nucleus (DR), locus coeruleus (LC) and pontine reticular nucleus oral part (PnO) and… Expand
