Role of δ2 opioid receptor in cardioprotection against hypoxia-reoxygenation injury.


Several lines of in vivo evidence demonstrated that activation of δ-opioid receptors (ORs) with agonists mimics the cardioprotective effect of ischemic preconditioning. However, the subtypes of ORs involved and the molecular and cellular mechanisms are not entirely clear. To investigate the significance of the contribution by δ ORs to cardiomyocyte survival… (More)
