    Sammanfattning : Vasodilator responses to endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) and anandamide in isolated arteries were investigated. A combination of the potassium channel blockers charybdotoxin and apamin inhibits EDHF-mediated relaxations. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : N-acylethanolamines (NAEs) belong to a growing family of endogenous signalling molecules acting on a variety of receptors and ion channels. In 1992, it was reported that the N-acylethanolamine anandamide is present in the brain and activates the central cannabinoid (CB) receptor. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Biosynthesis and physiological functions of N-acyl amino acids

    Författare :Dominik Paweł Waluk; Mary C. Hunt; David Merkler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : N-acyl amino acids are lipid signalling molecules that have recently been identified in biological systems. These lipids are structurally related to the endocannabinoids, although they do not activate cannabinoid receptors. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Neuropeptide release in the rat dorsal horn in models of persistent pain : Effects of opioids

    Författare :Abdullahi Warsame Afrah; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Axotomy; Inflammation; Long term potentiation; Capsaicin; Opioids; Cholecystokinin; Substance P; Glutamate; NMDA; Spinal cord; Microdialysis; Radioimmunoassay.;

    Sammanfattning : Nerve injury and tissue inflammation may lead to exaggerated responses to both noxious stimuli (hyperalgesia) and innocuous stimuli (allodynia). Altered release pattems of neurotransmitters in the dorsal hom of the spinal cord have been suggested to contribute to hyperalgesia and allodynia. LÄS MER
