J Neuroimmunol 78:198-202. 1997..Thus, the expression of DOR mRNA by unactivated splenocytes is modulated by culture and con A in the T-cell fraction...
- Evidence for opioid receptors on cells involved in host defense and the immune systemB M Sharp
Endocrine Neuroscience and Neuroimmunomodulation Research Labs, Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation, MN 55404, USA
J Neuroimmunol 83:45-56. 1998..Elucidating mechanisms, such as these, may provide unique therapeutic opportunities through the application of opioid immunopharmacology to disorders involving immune responses in peripheral organs and the central nervous system...
- Signaling through delta opioid receptors on murine splenic T cells and stably transfected Jurkat cellsB M Sharp
Endocrine Neuroscience Laboratory, Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation, Minnesota 55404, USA
Ann N Y Acad Sci 840:420-4. 1998..These findings with normal splenic T cells and DOR-transfected T-cell line indicate that beta-EP and DOR agonists affect calcium mobilization. This is likely to modulate downstream pathways that regulate T-cell activation and function...
