Article Title: G proteins and opioid receptor-mediated signalling
Abstract: Most opioid receptor-mediated functions appear to be mediated through G protein interactions, therefore an understanding of opioid signalling requires knowledge of those interactions. This review chronicles the studies examining these interactions for all the opioid receptor subtypes, both in vivo and in vitro.
