Brain substrates activated by electroacupuncture (EA) of different frequencies (II): Role of Fos/Jun proteins in EA- induced transcription of preproenkephalin and preprodynorphin genes.

Antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) of c-fos and/or c-jun were used in this study to investigate the role of Fos and Jun proteins in electroacupuncture (EA)-induced transcription of the opioid genes, preproenkephalin (PPE), preprodynorphin ( PPD) and proopiomelanocortin (POMC). As the results showed, EA-induced Fos and fun expression was blocked efficiently and specifically by e-fos and c-jun antisense ODNs, respectively. This treatment significantly prevented EA-induced PPD, but not PPE, mRNA expression. These results suggest that Fos and Jun proteins are involved in PPD rather than PPE gene transcription activated by EA stimulation.[1]
