Selective cardiovascular and neuroendocrine effects of a kappa-opioid agonist in the nucleus tractus solitarii of rats.

Abstract

The cardiovascular and neuroendocrine effects of a selective kappa-opiate receptor agonist (U50488H) microinjected into the nucleus tractus solitarii have been investigated in urethane-anaesthetized rats. Comparative experiments were conducted using 8-arginine vasopressin (AVP)-deficient Brattleboro rats and an opiate agonist selective for delta receptors… (More)
