Using immunocytochemistry, we have identified important differences in the distribution of immunoreactive dynorphin and enkephalin cells and terminals in the trigeminal nucleus caudalis and in the spinal dorsal horn of the cat. Dynorphin immunoreactive processes are more closely associated with those regions of cord that process nociceptive information, specifically laminae I and V. Enkephalin neurons and terminals are more widespread. Based on the staining pattern with an antiserum to the… CONTINUE READING
