Central Peptidergic Transmission

Producer: British Pharmacological Society

This highly interactive program covers the structure and physiological properties of neuropeptides; peptidergic transmission (synthesis, transport, release, postsynaptic action and inactivation); the major methods by which peptides are studied (immunohistochemical, radioimmunoassay and enzyme-linked immunoassay techniques) and drugs affecting peptide-mediated transmission. Each section describes principles and uses the opioids to illustrate them. The program assumes a knowledge of synaptic transmission covered in Synaptic Transmission in the CNS.
