Neurokinin-1 versus mu-opioid receptor binding in rat nucleus tractus solitarius after single and recurrent intermittent hypoxia.

Abstract

G protein-coupled excitatory neurokinin-1 and inhibitory mu-opioid receptors exist in respiratory brainstem with their peptides and influence breathing. To assess their putative role in respiratory responses to hypoxia, neurokinin-1, and mu-opioid receptor binding was determined in the respiratory nucleus tractus solitarius of the mature rat after single… (More)
