Summary: In this review the authors discuss the important role Src protein tyrosine kinase plays in the adverse consequences of clinical application of opioids
Usage: Intrathecal injection of Mac-1-SAP depletes microglial cells in the spinal dorsal horn and alleviates the loss of anti-nociception of morphine and prevents the decrease in morphine potency. This demonstrates that spinal microglial cells are necessary for morphine tolerance (15 µg; Leduc-Pessah et al., 2017).
