Interaction between nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) and GABA in response to feeding.

Nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) and gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) agonists have been shown to increase feed intake in mammals and birds. In this study, the effect of intracerebroventricular (icv) injection of the potent NOP receptor agonists Nociceptin (1-13) NH(2), the GABA(A) receptor antagonist bicuculline, and the GABA(A) receptor agonist muscimol on… CONTINUE READING
