Morphine- and Concanavalin A-induced changes of protein composition of rat spleen lymphocytes were determined by high-resolution proteomic analysis, gel-free, label-free quantification, MaxLFQ. Stimulation by Con A resulted in a major reorganization of spleen cell protein composition evidenced by increased expression level of 94 proteins; 101 proteins were down-regulated (>2-fold). Interestingly, among proteins that were up-regulated to the largest extent were the prototypical brain proteins as a neuron specific enolase, synapsin-1, brain acid-soluble protein-1 and myelin basic protein. Morphine-induced change was limited to no more than 5 up-regulated and 18 down-regulated proteins (>2-fold).
