Role of κ-opioid receptor in hypoxic pulmonary artery hypertension and its underlying mechanism.


The objective of this study were to determine the mechanism of action and role of the κ-opioid receptor (κ-OR) on hypoxic pulmonary artery hypertension (HPH) in the rat and its underlying mechanisms. The effect of U50,488H, a selective κ-OR agonist, on the proliferation of pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) under hypoxic conditions were… (More)
