The opioid agonist ethylketocyclazocine reverts the rapid, non-genomic effects of membrane testosterone receptors in the human prostate LNCaP cell line.


Neuropeptides influence cancer cell replication and growth. Opioid peptides, and opiergic neurons are found in the prostate gland, and they are proposed to exert a role in tumor regulation, influencing cancer cell growth, as opioid agonists inhibit cell growth in several systems, including the human prostate cancer cell line LNCaP. In the same cell line… (More)
