Prodynorphin IgG

Optimal Result: 0 - 0.9 Units.

Prodynorphin is an opioid that is a basic building block of endorphins.

Prodynorphin is a protein that is produced in the body and is a precursor to a family of opioid peptides called dynorphins. Dynorphins are neurotransmitters that bind to opioid receptors in the brain and can have a range of effects, including pain relief, sedation, and regulation of mood.

Prodynorphin is produced in several areas of the brain, including the hypothalamus, hippocampus, and spinal cord, as well as in the adrenal gland and some other peripheral tissues. It is also produced in response to stress and pain.

While dynorphins have been extensively studied, the role of prodynorphin in various physiological processes is still being investigated. However, prodynorphin is known to play a role in pain modulation, stress response, and addiction, among other functions.

Mutations or alterations in the prodynorphin gene have been linked to certain neurological and psychiatric conditions, including drug addiction, depression, and schizophrenia.

What does it mean if your Prodynorphin IgG result is too high?

Antibodies to prodynorphin have been found to be elevated in individuals with gluten sensitivity associated neurochemical disorders.

If a person has elevated antibodies to Gluteomorphin or Prodynorphin, they may have severe neurochemical reactions to gluten and also create what is called a gluteomorphin withdrawal response. This is a response that causes a patient to have significant reactions such as depression, mood swings, abnormal bowel activity when they go on a gluten-free diet. If this occurs the person must hang in there for a couple of weeks being gluten-free to potentially avoid harmful disorders.
