Allodynia/Hyperalgesia-Blocking Peptide
Nociceptin Action Blocking Peptide

Nocistatin | A peptide that blocks nociceptin action is found from the nociceptin precursor

Nociceptin [Nature, 377, 532 (1995)] / Orphanin FQ [Science, 270, 792 (1995)], is an endogenous ligand for the orphan opioid-like receptor. Nociceptin induces both allodynia (pain resulting from a non-noxious stimulus to normal skin) and hyperalgesia when administered intrathecally [Brit. J. Pharmacol., 121, 401 (1997)].

Human nocistatin: Bovine nocistatin is flanked by a pair of basic residues and is a 17-residue peptide, while the human precursor lacks the corresponding amino-terminal double basic residues and may be processed enzymatically to a 30-residue peptide. This putative peptide was synthesized chemically and was found to have the same biological activities as bovine nocistatin [Br. J. Pharmacol., 124, 1016 (1998)]. The IC50 values are one order of magnitude higher than those of the bovine peptide; however, the efficacy is still high enough as an endogenous pharmacological agent. Therefore, this peptide is termed human nocistatin, which may be involved in the modulation of pain transmission in humans.
