1. The profile of opioid and cannabinoid receptors in neurons of the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) has been studied using the whole-cell configuration of the patch clamp technique. 2. Experiments with selective agonists and antagonists of opioid, ORL and cannabinoid receptors indicated that mu-opioid, kappa-opioid, ORL-1 and CB1, but not delta-opioid, receptors inhibit VDCCs in NTS. 3. Application of [D-Ala2, N-Me-Phe4, Gly5-ol]-enkephalin (DAMGO; mu-opioid receptor agonist), Orphanin FQ… CONTINUE READING
