In the present study, we examined the possibility of the presence of the Phe-Leu-Phe-Gln-Pro-Gln-Arg-Phe-NH2 (NPFF) system in the rat heart as well as the effects of drugs affecting noradrenergic transmission upon the cardiovascular responses elicited by peripheral administration of NPFF. The presence of NPFF receptors on heart sections and of NPFF-immunoreactivity in heart tissue was demonstrated with autoradiographic and radioimmunoassay procedures, respectively. Intravenous administration of… CONTINUE READING
