The effects of glycine on morphine-induced antinociception were investigated in mice, using a cutaneous thermal test (hot-plate), a visceral chemical test (acetylcholine writhing test), and a locomotor activity test. When glycine (200 mg/kg p.o.) and morphine (5 mg/kg s.c.) were given together during the first 30 min, glycine first antagonized the morphine-induced antinociception then this was followed by a synergistic effect. The two-phase influence of glycine on morphine-induced antinociception may be due to the interaction of glycine with different receptors.

Abstract

The effects of glycine on morphine-induced antinociception were investigated in mice, using a cutaneous thermal test (hot-plate), a visceral chemical test (acetylcholine writhing test), and a locomotor activity test. When glycine (200 mg/kg p.o.) and morphine (5 mg/kg s.c.) were given together during the first 30 min, glycine first antagonized the morphine-induced antinociception then this was followed by a synergistic effect. The two-phase influence of glycine on morphine-induced antinociception may be due to the interaction of glycine with different receptors.
