Using a combination of radioactive and non-radioactive in situ hybridizations, the expression of mu and kappa opioid receptor mRNA was investigated in neurons in the female rat preoptic nucleus expressing galanin and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) mRNA. Numerous cells expressing both mu or kappa and galanin were found in the intermediate and rostral regions of the preoptic area whereas little co-localization was observed at the rostral level. The number of kappa/galanin expressing cells… CONTINUE READING
