Describing mechanism of actionWhen a portion of heroin is consumed, themolecule heroin (CHEBI:27808) participates in abinding process (GO:0031628) to mu-opioidreceptors (PR:000001612).Similarly, when a portion of tobacco is smoked, themolecule nicotine (CHEBI:27808) participates in abinding process (GO:0033130) to nicotinicacetycholine receptors (GO:0005892).Those receptors are present on the dopaminergicneurons (NeuroLex – nlx:144018), of the nucleusaccumbens, described in BIRNlex (birnlex:727).Friday, July 27, 2012 11
