In order to address these questions, we tested the protein level of protein kinase C (PKC), MEK, and extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) in the mGluR5 mediated PKC/MEK/ERK1/2 signaling pathway; we also tested the mRNA expression level of prodynorphin (PDyn) and proenkephalin (PEnk) in order to verify the effect of the blockade of mGluR5 on the direct and indirect pathways.
Calcium increase would stimulate the synthesis of proenkephalin (PENK) which, in turn, activates the [delta]-opioid receptor to reduce nociceptive response.

ENK are produced from a propeptide precursor, proenkephalin (proENK), which is translated from preproenkephalin mRNA that is encoded by a gene distinct from the other endogenous opioid peptides [19, 20].
To this end, the authors have made efforts to develop stratifying biomarkers to aid in the diagnostic and prognostic assessment of coronary artery disease, which have included copeptin (4), proenkephalin (PENK) (5), midregional proadrenomedullin (MR-proADM) (6), pro-substance P (pro-SP) (7), oxidized LDL (oxidized phosphatidylcholine, malondialdehyde-modified) (8, 9) and molecular forms of natriuretic peptide (10).
