  • Signaling
  • Experiments were corroborated in dogs, chicks, and rats confirming the evolutionary importance of opioid signaling in these behaviors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ultimately, this work provides a deeper understanding of opioid receptor signaling and can provide the basis for future therapeutic development targeting this receptor system. (washington.edu)
  • This thesis also includes contributions to other studies on opioid receptor signaling. (washington.edu)
  • The G allele, even when present heterozygously, has been linked to increased alcohol cravings and influences the response to exogenous opioids, likely by affecting receptor expression and signaling efficiency (3,4,5). (salimetrics.com)
  • Newswise - March 7, 2014, Phoenix, AZ -- Researchers found initial confirmation that a novel scaffold protein previously unassociated with the mu opioid receptor (MOR) regulates MOR-induced signaling activation. (newswise.com)
  • Though promising, Dr. Streicher said, this approach has been limited so far, because the signaling complex and regulators of opioid receptors have not been defined with sufficient detail, which would be crucial for success. (newswise.com)
  • Splice
  • You can calculate the theoretical MW of the receptor proteins from their amino acid sequences, but then the party is spoilt by post-traslational modifications, not to mention the many isoforms/splice variants of opioid receptors that exist, all of which have different MW's. (histosearch.com)
  • synthetic
  • Bisogno T, Hanuš L, De Petrocellis L, Tchilibon S, Ponde DE, Brandi I, Moriello AS, Davis JB, Mechoulam R, Di Marzo V (2001) Molecular targets for cannabidiol and its synthetic analogues: effect on vanilloid VR1 receptors and on the cellular uptake and enzymatic hydrolysis of anandamide.

  • Plays a role in the regulation of salivation in response to synthetic opioids. (uniprot.org)
  • ANALGESICS
  • 2015). The impact of genetic variation on sensitivity to opioid analgesics in patients with postoperative pain: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (salimetrics.com)
  • novel
  • Relying on RET , Javitch and coworkers showed that RET signals were more characteristic of random proximity between receptors, rather than an actual bond formation between receptors, suggesting that discrepancies in binding profiles may be the result of downstream interactions, rather than novel effects due to oligomerization. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • In humans, this paralogon resulting from a double tetraploidization event resulted in the receptor genes being located on chromosomes 1, 6, 8, and 20. (wikipedia.org)
  • In humans, the δ-opioid receptor is most heavily expressed in the basal ganglia and neocortical regions of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapeutic
  • This discovery greatly improves our understanding of opioid side effects and suggests intriguing therapeutic approaches that could improve both the safety and long-term effectiveness of opioids. (jci.org)
  • binds
  • When BU72 binds to OR, the receptor transitions into its active state. (kenyon.edu)
  • While THC activates cannabinoid receptors THCV has bit shorter chain as only structural difference and this gives it almost opposite effects to THC (binds to receptors but doesn`t activate them). (biology-online.org)
  • proteins
  • The rhodopsin-like GPCRs (GPCRA) represent a widespread protein family that includes hormone, neurotransmitter and light receptors, all of which transduce extracellular signals through interaction with guanine nucleotide-binding (G) proteins. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • The first method (proteomic screen) involved pulling out the receptor and proteins bound to the receptor after drug activation using a technique called co-immunoprecipitation. (newswise.com)
  • Once isolated, the receptor and the proteins bound to it may be identified by mass spectrometry. (newswise.com)
  • opiates
  • Synaptosomes of brain from rats chronically exposed to opiates exhibited reduced GABA uptake, indicating that GABA transport might be regulated by opioid receptors. (hindawi.com)
