Abstract: The expression of micro (mu: MOP) and nociceptin/orphanin FQ (NOP) receptors in the human myocardium is controversial. In this polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based study using human right atrial biopsies, we have (i) probed for mRNA encoding NOP receptor and its endogenous peptide precursor, ppN/OFQ, and mRNA encoding MOP and (ii) attempted to correlate expression with cardiac function.
