Selective distribution of mu-opioid receptors in C1 adrenergic neurons and their afferents.

Abstract

Agonists of the mu-opioid receptor (MOR) have profound effects on blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration that may be mediated by C1 adrenergic neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVL). C1 neurons are sympathoexcitatory and are involved in both tonic and reflex regulation of sympathetic outflow. This study was designed to determine whether C1… (More)
