The actions listed for antagonists are seen with the antagonist alone. All the correlations in this table are based on studies in rats and mice, which occasionally show species differences. Thus, any extensions of these associations to humans are tentative. Clinical studies do indicate that m receptors elicit analgesia spinally and supraspinally. Preliminary work with a synthetic opioid peptide, [d-Ala2,d-Leu5]enkephalin, suggests that intrathecal d agonists are analgesic in humans.

Your heart pumps blood throughout your body using a network of tubing called arteries and capillaries which return the blood back to your heart via your veins. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of your arteries as your heart beats.Learn more...
