Nociceptin/orphanin FQ: effects on thermoregulation in rats.

Abstract

Nociceptin/orphanin FQ is a 17 amino acid peptide which acts as a potent endogenous agonist of the opioid receptor-like 1 (ORL1) receptor. ORL1 receptor is a G protein-coupled unique member of the cloned opioid receptor family. We have investigated the effects of nociceptin (1, 10 and 100 nM) on the temperature sensitivity of neurons from the preoptic area… (More)
