Regional interactions of opioid peptides at mu and delta sites in rat brain.

Abstract

Opiate binding sites in five brain regions were labeled with the mu and delta markers, 3H-morphine and 3H-[D-Ala2,D-leu5]enkephalin, respectively. The highest densities of both 3H-morphine and 3H-DADLE labeled sites are found in striatum and frontal cortex. Hypothalamus and midbrain contain predominantly 3H-morphine labeled sites. The selectivity of the… (More)
