Nuclear expression of mu-opioid receptors in a human mesothelial cell line.

Abstract

1 Possibly acting via mu-opioid receptors (MORs), morphine inhibits the formation of experimentally induced postoperative abdominal adhesions in rats. Mesothelial cells may participate in adhesion formation by secreting mediators that interfere negatively with fibrinolysis. Morphine may prevent adhesions by inhibiting the release of pro-adhesion mediators… (More)
