1. PACAP and orphanin FQ/nociceptin -Distribution, importance and regulation in sensory neurons and spinal cordDetta är en avhandling från Lina Pettersson, Physiological Sciences, Neuroendocrine Cell Biology, BMC F10, 221 84 Lund, Sweden
Sammanfattning : Neuropeptide expression in the nervous system is abundant and plastic, and an altered expression after injury is an example of a functional response, helping the neuron to cope with adverse changes, and involves effects on differentiation, synthesis, repair/regeneration, survival, and modulation of signal transmission. I have investigated the distribution/expression of the neuropeptides, orphanin FQ/nociceptin (OFQ/N) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP), under normal conditions, in response to nerve injuries, and also studied sensory responses in mice deficient for the PAC1 receptor (PAC1-/-).
