Selective suppression of inhibitory synaptic transmission by nocistatin in the rat spinal cord dorsal horn.

Abstract

Nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) and nocistatin (NST) are two recently identified neuropeptides with opposing effects on several CNS functions, including spinal nociception. The cellular mechanisms that underlie this antagonism are not known. Here, we have investigated the effects of both peptides on synaptic transmission mediated by the three fast… (More)
