The analgesia-producing mechanism of processed <I>Aconiti</I> tuber was examined using rodents whose nociceptive threshold was decreased by loading repeated cold stress (RCS). The antinociceptive effect of processed <I>Aconiti</I> tuber (0.3 g/kg, p.o.) in RCS-loaded mice was antagonized by pretreatment with a κ-opioid antagonist, nor-binaltorphimine (10 mg/kg, s.c.), and was abolished by an intrathecal injection of anti-dynorphin antiserum (5 μg). The <I>Aconiti</I> tuber-induced antinociception was inhibited by both dexamethasone (0.4 mg/kg, i.p.) and a dopamine D<SUB>2</SUB> antagonist, sulpiride (10 mg/kg, i.p.), in RCS-loaded mice, and it was eliminated by both an electric lesion of the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (HARN) and a highly selective dopamine D<SUB>2</SUB> antagonist, eticlopride (0.05 μg), administered into the HARN in RCS-loaded rats. These results suggest that the analgesic effect of processed <I>Aconiti</I> tuber was produced via the stimulation of κ-opioid receptors by dynorphin released in the spinal cord. It was also shown that dopamine D<SUB>2</SUB> receptors in the HARN were involved in the expression of the analgesic activity of processed <I>Aconiti</I> tuber.
