Sažetak
In the present study the in vitro and in vivo effect of Met-enkephalin (MENK) on nitric oxide (NO) release by mouse peritoneal macrophages was evaluated. While in vitro MENK was ineffective unless combined with suboptimal concentrations of recombinant murine interferon gamma, in vive all the doses (2.5, 5 or 10 mg/kg bw) bimodaly modulated NO release. Only the stimulative (2.5 and 10 mg/kg bw) and not the suppressive (5 mg/kg bw) dose of MENK was opioid receptor-mediated as demonstrated by abolishing the effect by naloxone. The stimulative effect of the low (2.5 mg/kg bw) dose, that was observed only if MENK was injected p.m., was associated with the IL production and IFN gamma as demonstrated by abolishing the effect by specific antibodies. The data additionally support the idea that opioid-mediated responses might be to a large degree mediated by the release of cytokines.
