Pain sensitivity of fishes and analgesia induced by opioid and nonopioid agents

  title={Pain sensitivity of fishes and analgesia induced by opioid and nonopioid agents},
  author={L. Chervova and D. N. Lapshin},
Experiments were performed on carp Cyprinus carpio, rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, cod Gadus morhua and sturgeon Acipenser ruthenus. An originally designed optico-mechanical system was used to record the response to painful electrical stimulation. before and after administration of analgetic agents. Drugs used were mu agonists tramadol, dermorphine and beta-casomorphine, kappa agonist U-50488, delta agonist DADLE, and nonopioid agents sydnophenum, analginum, novocainum. Drugs were… Expand

Similar antagonism of morphine analgesia by MIF-1 and naloxone in Carassius auratus
The results support the evidence that MIF-1 can act as an opiate antagonist and reduce the analgesic effects of morphine when compared to the diluent control group. Expand
Evolutionary and comparative aspects of nociception
This review briefly considers the phylogenetic development of nociceptive responses and behaviors, and the effects of various biological variables, including; age, development, sex, and temporal factors (biological rhythms) on nOCiception in rodents. Expand
Opioid receptors from a lower vertebrate (Catostomus commersoni): sequence, pharmacology, coupling to a G-protein-gated inward-rectifying potassium channel (GIRK1), and evolution.
The data indicate that the mu-opioid receptor arose very early in evolution, perhaps before the appearance of vertebrates, and that the pharmacological and functional properties of this receptor have been conserved over a period of approximately 400 million years implying that it fulfills an important physiological role.

The results show that data from published knowledge can be used to provide reliable, patient level, automated risk assessment, potentially reducing the cognitive burden on physicians and helping policy makers better prepare for future needs. Expand
Cloning, molecular characterization, and distribution of a gene homologous to delta opioid receptor from zebrafish (Danio rerio).
This is the first molecular evidence of the presence of the delta opioid receptor in a non-mammalian species and suggests that it has been highly conserved throughout vertebrate evolution. Expand
Morphine Metabolism and Morphine Tolerance in Goldfish
Tolerance to morphine was induced in goldfish shown to be unable to metabolize morphine. Ability to metabolize is, therefore not a prercquisite to development of tolerance.
Trigeminal sensory neurons of the sea lamprey
Intracellular recordings were made from neurons of the trigeminal sensory ganglia of young adult sea lampreys, and four classes of sensory cells were identified, indicating that nociceptive cells had smaller diameter axons. Expand
