In the present study, we compared the autoradiographic distribution of I[Tyr14]OFQ and I[Tyr10]OFQ(1–11) in coronal rat brain sections. Nonspecific binding was . Such peptides may be produced by the body itself, for example endorphins. The effects of these peptides vary, but they all resemble those of opiates. Brain opioid peptide systems are known to play an important role in motivation, emotion, attachment behaviour, the response to stress and pain, and the control of food intake.

of opiate alkaloids or opioid peptides in most brain regions is de­ pression of spontaneous, synaptically or chemically-evoked neuronal single-unit discharge activity. The depressions are generally blocked by naloxone, suggesting involvement of the empirically defined opiate receptors. The depressions are qualitatively similar throughout the. brain stem, where GABA acts to inhibit a pain-inhibitory neuron). This disinhibitory action of the opioid has the net effect of exciting a descending inhibitory circuit. The opioid receptors are part of an endogenous opioid system that includes a large number of endogenous opi-oid peptide ligands. Based on cloning, three distinct.

  When opioid drugs infiltrate a part of the brain stem called the locus ceruleus, their receptors slow respiration, cause constipation, lower blood pressure and decrease alertness. ABSTRACT The brain peptides a- and 3-endorphin, leucine- and methionine-enkephalin, as well as the opiate normorphine, have been evaluated by microiontophoresis for their effects on neuronal activity in several regions of the rat brain.
