Inflammation-induced alternations in local and central Met-enkephalin in mice.


The local increase in Met-enkephalin level during zymosan-induced peritonitis may be related to its local production by exudatory leukocytes (as evidenced by our previous experiments) and influx from distal centers, as its level is significantly decreased in blood, inguinal lymph nodes, and some brain areas (striatum, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland).
