Figure 4

Enhanced NR2B NMDA receptor function in morphine-treated mice. (A) Representative traces showing that the NR2B component was revealed by application of Ro256981 (3 μM) in saline (upper) or morphine treated mice (lower). (B) Pooled data showed a significant increase in the NR2B component in morphine treated mice (n = 8) compared with that of saline group (n = 6). (C) A short train of stimuli (200 Hz, 7 pulses) induced lager NMDA EPSCs. The NR2B component, including extrasynaptic NR2B, was revealed by application of Ro 256981 (3 μM) in saline (upper) or morphine treated mice (lower). (D) Pooled data showed a significant increase in the NR2B component of short train-induced NMDA current in morphine treated mice (n = 7) compared with that of the saline group (n = 7).
