Acute cold exposure of organism (4 hours at -20 degrees C) inhibits myocardial protein synthesis and increases cortisol/insulin index in rat blood. Preliminary repeated administration in [D-Ala2, Leu5, Arg6]-enkephalin (dalargin) prevents the decrease of myocardial protein synthesis rate after cold stress and decreases cortisol/insulin ratio. Pretreatment with naloxone at dose of 0.2 mg/kg or 2 mg/kg doesn't eliminate 'anabolic' effect of dalargin. 'Anabolic' effect of dalargin is suggested to be connected with -opioid receptor stimulation and change in insulin and cortisol secretion
