Brainstem opioidergic system is involved in early response to experimental SAH.

Cetas J, McFarlane R, Kronfeld K, Smitasin P, Liu J, Raskin J (2015) Brainstem opioidergic system is involved in early response to experimental SAH. Transl Stroke Res 6:140-147. doi: 10.1007/s12975-014-0378-2

Objective: To determine the cause of poor long-term outcomes after Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

Summary: Failure of the RVM μ-opioid receptor cells to initiate the compensatory CBF response sets the stage for acute and delayed ischemic injury following SAH.

Usage: To lesion medullary neurons expressing the μ-opioid receptor, Dermorphin–SAP was microinjected as a bilateral dose of 0.5 pmol in 500 nL per side (1 pmol in 1 μL total dose and injection volume). Blank–SAP or vehicle was injected in equal volumes and dose as controls.
