Hypothalamic opiatergic tone during pregnancy, parturition and lactation in the rat.

Abstract

The concentrations of beta-endorphin have been shown to change in the rat brain during pregnancy and lactation. This study has been performed in order to analyze whether also brain opioid receptors might undergo significant modifications during these two physiological situations. The maximal binding capacity (Bmax) and the constant of affinity (Ka) of the… (More)
