Cell membrane proteins that bind opioids and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. The endogenous ligands for opioid receptors in mammals include three families of peptides, the enkephalins, endorphins, and dynorphins. The receptor classes include mu, delta, and kappa receptors.

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Delta opioid receptors bind endorphins and enkephalins with approximately equal affinity and have less affinity for dynorphins.
A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Kappa opioid receptors bind dynorphins with a higher affinity than endorphins which are themselves preferred to enkephalins.
The endogenous peptides with opiate-like activity. The three major classes currently recognized are the ENKEPHALINS, the DYNORPHINS, and the ENDORPHINS. Each of these families derives from different precursors, proenkephalin, prodynorphin, and PRO-OPIOMELANOCORTIN, respectively. There are also at least three classes of OPIOID RECEPTORS, but the peptide families do not map to the receptors in a simple way.

One of the three major groups of endogenous opioid peptides. They are large peptides derived from the PRO-OPIOMELANOCORTIN precursor. The known members of this group are alpha-, beta-, and gamma-endorphin. The term endorphin is also sometimes used to refer to all opioid peptides, but the narrower sense is used here; OPIOID PEPTIDES is used for the broader group.
A class of opioid peptides including dynorphin A, dynorphin B, and smaller fragments of these peptides. Dynorphins prefer kappa-opioid receptors (RECEPTORS, OPIOID, KAPPA) and have been shown to play a role as central nervous system transmitters.
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.

Cloning and characterization of RGS9-2: a striatal-enriched alternatively spliced product of the RGS9 gene. (1/2005)

Regulators of G-protein signaling (RGS) proteins act as GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs) for alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G-proteins. Previous in situ hybridization analysis of mRNAs encoding RGS3-RGS11 revealed region-specific expression patterns in rat brain. RGS9 showed a particularly striking pattern of almost exclusive enrichment in striatum. In a parallel study, RGS9 cDNA, here referred to as RGS9-1, was cloned from retinal cDNA libraries, and the encoded protein was identified as a GAP for transducin (Galphat) in rod outer segments. In the present study we identify a novel splice variant of RGS9, RGS9-2, cloned from a mouse forebrain cDNA library, which encodes a striatal-specific isoform of the protein. RGS9-2 is 191 amino acids longer than the retinal isoform, has a unique 3' untranslated region, and is highly enriched in striatum, with much lower levels seen in other brain regions and no expression detectable in retina. Immunohistochemistry showed that RGS9-2 protein is restricted to striatal neuropil and absent in striatal terminal fields. The functional activity of RGS9-2 is supported by the finding that it, but not RGS9-1, dampens the Gi/o-coupled mu-opioid receptor response in vitro. Characterization of a bacterial artificial chromosome genomic clone of approximately 200 kb indicates that these isoforms represent alternatively spliced mRNAs from a single gene and that the RGS domain, conserved among all known RGS members, is encoded over three distinct exons. The distinct C-terminal domains of RGS9-2 and RGS9-1 presumably contribute to unique regulatory properties in the neural and retinal cells in which these proteins are selectively expressed.  (+info)

Presynaptic inhibition of GABA(B)-mediated synaptic potentials in the ventral tegmental area during morphine withdrawal. (2/2005)

Opioids increase the firing of dopamine cells in the ventral tegmental area by presynaptic inhibition of GABA release. This report describes an acute presynaptic inhibition of GABAB-mediated IPSPs by mu- and kappa-opioid receptors and the effects of withdrawal from chronic morphine treatment on the release of GABA at this synapse. In slices taken from morphine-treated guinea pigs after washing out the morphine (withdrawn slices), a low concentration of a mu receptor agonist increased, rather than decreased, the amplitude of the GABAB IPSP. In withdrawn slices, after blocking A1-adenosine receptors with 8-cyclopentyl-1, 3-dipropylxantine, mu-opioid receptor activation inhibited the IPSP at all concentrations and increased the maximal inhibition. In addition, during withdrawal, there was a tonic increase in adenosine tone that was further increased by forskolin or D1-dopamine receptor activation, suggesting that metabolism of cAMP was the source of adenosine. The results indicate that during acute morphine withdrawal, there was an upregulation of the basal level of an opioid-sensitive adenylyl cyclase. Inhibition of this basal activity by opioids had two effects. First, a decrease in the formation of cAMP that decreased adenosine tone. This effect predominated at low mu receptor occupancy and increased the amplitude of the IPSP. Higher agonist concentrations inhibited transmitter release by both kinase-dependent and -independent pathways. This study indicates that the consequences of the morphine-induced upregulation of the cAMP cascade on synaptic transmission are dependent on the makeup of receptors and second messenger pathways present on any given terminal.  (+info)

Molecular modeling of mu opioid receptor and receptor-ligand interaction. (3/2005)

AIM: To construct the 3D structural model of mu opioid receptor (mu OR) and study the interaction between mu OR and fentanyl derivatives. METHODS: The 3D structure of mu OR was modeled using the bacteriorhodopsin (bRh) as a template, in which the alignments of transmembrane (TM) of bRh and mu OR were achieved by scoring the alignment between the amino acid sequence of mu OR and the structure of bRh. The fentanyl derivatives were docked into the 7 helices of mu OR and the binding energies were calculated. RESULTS: (1) The receptor-ligand interaction models were obtained for fentanyl derivatives. (2) In these models, the fundamental binding sites were possibly Asp147 and His297. The negatively charged oxygen of Asp147 and the positively charged ammonium group of ligand formed the potent electrostatic and hydrogen-binding interactions. Whereas the interactions between the positively charged nitrogen of His297 and the carbonyl oxygen of ligand were weak. In addition, there were some pi-pi interactions between the receptor and the ligand. (3) The binding energies of the receptor-ligand complexes had a good correlation with the analgesic activities (-lg ED50) of the fentanyl derivatives. CONCLUSION: This model is helpful for understanding the receptor-ligand interaction and for designing novel mu OR selective ligands.  (+info)

Binding properties of C-truncated delta opioid receptors. (4/2005)

AIM: To study the role of C-terminal delta opioid receptor involved in ligand binding affinity and selectivity. METHODS: The 31 amino acid residues of C-terminal truncated delta opioid receptors and the wild-type were expressed stably in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, respectively. Then the ligand binding properties of the products were studied by receptor binding assay. RESULTS: A typical mutated receptor clone CHO-T and a wild-type receptor clone CHO-W were obtained. The Kd values of [3H] diprenorphine (Dip) and [3H]leucine-2-alanine enkephalin (DADLE) bound to CHO-T were similar to CHO-W. Both the specific [3H]Dip bindings of CHO-T and CHO-W were strongly inhibited by delta selective agonists with similar Ki, but neither by mu nor kappa selective agonists. CONCLUSION: The C-terminal of the delta opioid receptor is not involved in the ligands binding affinity and selectivity.  (+info)

Interaction models of 3-methylfentanyl derivatives with mu opioid receptors. (5/2005)

AIM: To study the interaction model of 3-methylfentanyl derivatives with mu opioid receptor. METHODS: After a systematic conformational search, a three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship study was carried out with comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA). RESULTS: 1) The 6 CoMFA models had good predictive values and each model corresponded to the minimum-energy conformations of 13 compounds studied; 2) The important geometric parameters of mu pharmacophore d1 (A), d2 (A), d3 (A), d4 (A), d5 (A), and d6 (A) were 5.2, 5.4, 4.9, 10.6, 10.2, and 5.8 in Model A; 5.2, 6.5, 3.6, 10.6, 11.6, and 5.8 in Model B; 5.2, 4.6, 4.9, 11.6, 9.2, and 6.5 in Model C; 5.2, 5.4, 4.9, 10.5, 10.3, and 5.8 in Model D; 3.6, 5.4, 4.9, 5.7, 7.5, and 5.7 in Model E; 5.2, 4.7, 4.9, 11.2, 9.5, and 6.4 in Model F, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The several bioactive conformations of fentanyl analogs possibly existed and did not need to be the absolute minimum-energy conformation, each of which was involved in the interaction with mu opioid receptor.  (+info)

Absence of G-protein activation by mu-opioid receptor agonists in the spinal cord of mu-opioid receptor knockout mice. (6/2005)

1. The ability of mu-opioid receptor agonists to activate G-proteins in the spinal cord of mu-opioid receptor knockout mice was examined by monitoring the binding to membranes of the non-hydrolyzable analogue of GTP, guanosine-5'-O-(3-[35S]thio)triphosphate ([35S]GTPgammaS). 2. In the receptor binding study, Scatchard analysis of [3H][D-Ala2,NHPhe4,Gly-ol]enkephalin ([3H]DAMGO; mu-opioid receptor ligand) binding revealed that the heterozygous mu-knockout mice displayed approximately 40% reduction in the number of mu-receptors as compared to the wild-type mice. The homozygous mu-knockout mice showed no detectable mu-binding sites. 3. The newly isolated mu-opioid peptides endomorphin-1 and -2, the synthetic selective mu-opioid receptor agonist DAMGO and the prototype of mu-opioid receptor agonist morphine each produced concentration-dependent increases in [35S]GTPgammaS binding in wild-type mice. This stimulation was reduced by 55-70% of the wild-type level in heterozygous, and virtually eliminated in homozygous knockout mice. 4. No differences in the [35S]GTPgammaS binding stimulated by specific delta1- ([D-Pen2,5]enkephalin), delta2-([D-Ala2]deltorphin II) or kappa1-(U50,488H) opioid receptor agonists were noted in mice of any of the three genotypes. 5. The data clearly indicate that mu-opioid receptor gene products play a key role in G-protein activation by endomorphins, DAMGO and morphine in the mouse spinal cord. They support the idea that mu-opioid receptor densities could be rate-limiting steps in the G-protein activation by mu-opioid receptor agonists in the spinal cord. These thus indicate a limited physiological mu-receptor reserve. Furthermore, little change in delta1-, delta2- or kappa1-opioid receptor-G-protein complex appears to accompany mu-opioid receptor gene deletions in this region.  (+info)

Nitrocinnamoyl and chlorocinnamoyl derivatives of dihydrocodeinone: in vivo and in vitro characterization of mu-selective agonist and antagonist activity. (7/2005)

Two 14beta-p-nitrocinnamoyl derivatives of dihydrocodeinone, 14beta-(p-nitrocinnamoylamino)-7,8-dihydrocodeinone (CACO) and N-cyclopropylmethylnor-14beta-(p-nitrocinnamoylamino)- 7, 8-dihydrocodeinone (N-CPM-CACO), and the corresponding chlorocinnamoylamino analogs, 14beta-(p-chlorocinnamoylamino)-7, 8-dihydrocodeinone (CAM) and N-cyclopropylmethylnor-14beta-(p-chlorocinnamoylamino) -7, 8-dihydrocodeinone (MC-CAM), were tested in opioid receptor binding assays and the mouse tail-flick test to characterize the opioid affinity, selectivity, and antinociceptive properties of these compounds. In competition binding assays, all four compounds bound to the mu opioid receptor with high affinity. When bovine striatal membranes were incubated with any of the four dihydrocodeinones, binding to the mu receptor was inhibited in a concentration-dependent, wash-resistant manner. Saturation binding experiments demonstrated that the wash-resistant inhibition of mu binding was due to a decrease in the Bmax value for the binding of the mu-selective peptide [3H][D-Ala2, MePhe4,Gly(ol)5] enkephalin and not a change in the Kd value, suggesting an irreversible interaction of the compounds with the mu receptor. In the mouse 55 degrees C warm water tail-flick test, both CACO and N-CPM-CACO acted as short-term mu-selective agonists when administered by i. c.v. injection, whereas CAM and MC-CAM produced no measurable antinociception at doses up to 30 nmol. Pretreatment of mice for 24 h with any of the four dihydrocodeinone derivatives produced a dose-dependent antagonism of antinociception mediated by the mu but not the delta or kappa receptors. Long-term antagonism of morphine-induced antinociception lasted for at least 48 h after i.c. v. administration. Finally, shifts in the morphine dose-response lines after 24-h pretreatment with the four dihydrocodeinone compounds suggest that the nitrocinnamoylamino derivatives may produce a greater magnitude long-term antagonism of morphine-induced antinociception than the chlorocinnamoylamino analogs.  (+info)

kappa- and mu-Opioid inhibition of N-type calcium currents is attenuated by 4beta-phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate and protein kinase C in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons. (8/2005)

In rat dorsal root ganglion neurons, activation of kappa- and mu-opioid receptors decreases N-type calcium current, whereas a constitutively active form of protein kinase C (PKC; i.e., PKM, a PKC catalytic subunit fragment) increases N-type calcium current. PKC also attenuates inhibition of calcium current by several G protein-linked neurotransmitter systems. We examined the effects of activation of endogenous PKC by 4beta-phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) and dialysis of cells with PKM and a pseudosubstrate inhibitor PKC(19-31) (PKC-I) on kappa- and mu-opioid-mediated inhibition of calcium current, calcium current amplitude, and rundown. PMA modestly increased peak calcium current and substantially reduced calcium current "rundown," effects blocked by PKC-I. In contrast, PKC-I decreased calcium current and increased current rundown. PMA attenuated morphine-, dynorphin A-, and U50, 488- but not pentobarbitol-related inhibition of calcium current. Similar effects were seen with intracellular dialysis of PKM. Intracellular PKC-I did not block opioid inhibition of calcium current but did reverse PMA and PKM effects on opioid receptor coupling to calcium channels. Because neither PMA nor PKM changed the proportion of omega-CgTX-inhibited current, their effects were not due to a decrease in the proportion of N-type current. After omega-CgTX treatment, there were no differences in the dynorphin A effects on control and PMA- or PKM-treated neurons, suggesting that PKC primarily affected coupling to N-type calcium channels. These data suggest that in acutely dissociated rat dorsal root ganglion neurons, endogenous PKC is required for maintenance of calcium current, may play a role in regulation of neuronal calcium channels, and could be involved in tolerance and/or cross-talk inhibition of opioid responsiveness.  (+info)

At present, divergent views exist concerning the extent to which either opioid receptor desensitization or adenylate cyclase superactivation contribute to the development of tolerance to morphine. The receptor activity versus endocytosis (RAVE) model proposes that morphine may induce adenylate cyclase superactivation to a greater extent than other opioids, which in turn exacerbates the development of tolerance (Whistler et al, 1999; Finn and Whistler, 2001). In contrast, studies using mice lacking β‐arrestin‐2 show that opioid receptor desensitization directly contributes to tolerance and that tolerance and adenylyl cyclase superactivation are two dissociable phenomena (Bohn et al, 1999, 2000). Here, we propose that morphine is unique in that it promotes terminal opioid receptor desensitization by inducing a sustained phosphorylation of Ser375. Morphine‐desensitized receptors remain at the plasma membrane in a Ser375‐phosphorylated state for prolonged periods and are not able to enter ...

The µ-opioid receptor is the primary target structure of most opioid analgesics and thus responsible for the predominant part of their wanted and unwanted effects. Carriers of the frequent genetic µ-opioid receptor variant N40D (allelic frequency 8.2 - 17 %), coded by the single nucleotide polymorphism A|G at position 118 of the µ-opioid receptor coding gene OPRM1 (OPRM1 118A|G SNP), suffer from a decreased opioid potency and from a higher need of opioid analgesics to reach adequate analgesia. The aim of the present work was to identify the mechanism by which the OPRM1 118A|G SNP decreases the opioid potency and to quantify its effects on the analgesic potency and therapeutic range of opioid analgesics. To elucidate the consequences of the OPRM1 118A|G SNP for the effects of opioid analgesics, brain regions of healthy homozygous carriers of the OPRM1 118A|G SNP were identified by means of functional magnetic resonace imaging (fMRI), where the variant alters the response to opioid analgesics after

Background: Microglia activation contributes to chronic pain and to the adverse effects of opiate use such as analgesic tolerance and opioid-induced hyperalgesia. Both mu opioid receptor (MOR) encoded by Oprm1/OPRM1 gene and toll like receptor 4 (TLR4) have been reported to mediate these morphine effects and a current question is whether microglia express the Oprm1 transcript and MOR protein. The aim of this study was to characterize Oprm1-MOR expression in naive murine and human microglia, combining transcriptomics datasets previously published by other groups with our own imaging study using the Cx3cr1-eGFP-MOR-mCherry reporter mouse line.Methods: We analyzed microglial Oprm1/OPRM1 expression obtained from transcriptomics datasets, focusing on ex vivo studies from adult wild-type animals and adult post-mortem human cerebral cortex. Oprm1, as well as co-regulated gene sets were examined. The expression of MOR in microglia was also investigated using our novel fluorescent Cx3cr1-eGFP-MOR-mcherry
Long-term opioid treatment results in the development of tolerance that reduces the responsiveness to the agonist. The mechanisms involved in the development and regulation of opioid tolerance are multifaceted. After long-term opioid treatment, the μ-opioid receptor undergoes fast receptor phosphorylation and uncoupling, followed by receptor internalization. Both the μ-opioid receptor desensitization and subsequent receptor internalization have long been considered to directly contribute to the development of opioid tolerance by reducing the number of signaling receptors. In contrast to this hypothesis, recent studies have demonstrated that agonist-induced μ-opioid receptor internalization plays an important role in reducing the development of opioid tolerance after long-term agonist treatment (Koch et al., 1998, 2001; Whistler et al., 1999; Finn and Whistler, 2001; Williams et al., 2001). Remarkably, it has recently been reported that the coapplication of a low dose of the ...
Hypoxia adversely affects cells and tissues, and neuronal cells in particular have been shown to be more susceptible to the injurious effects of hypoxia in which they may begin to die when oxygen supply is reduced or completely eliminated. Opioid receptor agonists have been shown to elicit several central nervous system effects, mediated via G protein-coupled receptors. The aim of this study was to study the effect of hypoxia on G protein coupled receptor gene expression using mu opioid receptor as a case study in cortical neuronal B50 cell lines in culture. The B50 cells were cultured in normoxia (21% O2; 5% CO2) and hypoxia (5% O2; 5% CO2), and were treated with opioid agonists to determine their effects on hypoxia-induced changes. Three opioid agonists {DAMGO(μ), DSLET(δ) and ICI--199,441(κ)}, were administered to the cells as treatment for 48 h after 48 h of initial culture for a total of 96 h of culture in hypoxic conditions at concentrations of 10, 50 and 100 μM. The levels of ...

Agonists targeting MOR are effective analgesics, but their clinical use is hindered by side effects, including tolerance and addiction. KOR agonists also produce analgesia, but clinical use of these compounds has remained minimal due to aversive properties in humans. The µ-opioid receptor (MOR) agonists, morphine and fentanyl, both activate c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), which is required for spinally-mediated morphine acute analgesic tolerance, whereas acute analgesic tolerance to fentanyl is blocked by G protein-coupled receptor kinase 3 (GRK3) gene deletion. Similarly, the κ-opioid receptor (KOR) collateral antagonist, norBNI, stimulates phosphorylation of JNK, and JNK1 is specifically required for norBNIs long duration of antagonism. The durations of action of a broad range of KOR antagonists, including norBNI, positively correlate with the ability of the antagonist to activate JNK1 (Melief et al., 2011), whereas there is no correlation between duration of antagonist action and drug ...
The original description of the two endomorphins revealed that both compounds had a profound mu selectivity (Zadina et al., 1997). In this initial study both endomorphins competed mubinding over 1000-fold more potently than either delta orkappa1 receptors (Zadina et al., 1997). In the current studies, the two endomorphins also displayed very poor affinities for delta and kappa1receptors and high affinity for both mu receptor subtypes. Most opioids label mu1 receptors more potently than mu2 sites and the same trend was seen with the endomorphins, which displayed a 5- to 10-fold greater affinity in the mu1 binding assay. The high affinity of the two endomorphins for mu receptors was confirmed in competition studies against the cloned mu receptor MOR-1.. The initial study exploring the selectivity of the compounds did not examine kappa3 binding. We found that the endomorphins also competed kappa3 receptors moderately well, lowering binding with Ki values between 20 and 30 nM. Although the ...
We demonstrated that endocytosis-inducing agonists DAMGO and fentanyl enhanced morphine-induced MOR internalization of dorsal horn neurons in rats. We reproduced the remarkable, but previously somewhat controversial, effect of DAMGO to facilitate morphine-induced endocytosis reported by He et al. 14 and further showed that fentanyl, a clinically used opioid with internalization-inducing potency, has a similar effect on MOR internalization in vivo . More importantly, concomitant with the enhancement of MOR endocytosis, we observed that the acute analgesic effect of morphine evaluated by the HP test was greatly potentiated by coadministration of these agonists. As described in the Results, the increase in analgesia was not detected in TF test, the method used in the previous report.14 Probably because of the longer cutoff latency, i.e. , broader range in analgesic extent of the HP test, we were able to find the analgesic potentiation, although contribution of the difference in mechanism between ...

The endomorphins are a group of endogenous opioid peptides consisting of endomorphin-1 (Tyr-Pro-Trp-Phe-NH2) and endomorphin-2 (Tyr-Pro-Phe-Phe-NH2). They are tetrapeptides with the highest known affinity and selectivity for the μ-opioid receptor. Endomorphin-1 is found in the nucleus of the solitary tract, the periventricular hypothalamus, and the dorsomedial hypothalamus, where it is found within histaminergic neurons and may regulate sedative and arousal behaviors. It is assumed that endomorphins are the cleavage products of a larger precursor, but this polypeptide or protein has not yet been identified. In rats similarly potent dosages of synthetic endomorphin and morphine produced comparable amounts of pain relief. However, the rats receiving morphine had motor skills and breathing that were significantly impaired, while the rats that received endomorphin did not. The morphine rats spent more time in the compartment where they had received morphine, while the endomorphin rats did not. Only ...

Researchers found initial confirmation that a novel scaffold protein previously unassociated with the mu opioid receptor (MOR) regulates MOR-induced signaling activation. The MOR is the target of opioid drugs like morphine and is an important mechanism for pain regulation in the body. The research approach was designed to open new avenues to the treatment of chronic pain, a serious public health problem with major economic and societal costs.

Despite the evidence from cellular and epidemiologic animal studies, clinicians should note that there are no controlled trials in humans demonstrating a direct effect of opioids in facilitating tumor progression or of opioid antagonists in attenuating tumor progression. Animal models do not uniformly translate into human disease. In addition, certain caveats apply to our work. Lewis lung carcinoma is among the most robust tumors in both growth and response to drugs. Whether our findings are applicable to other tumors or to humans is not known. In addition, the work presented in this communication deals with the effects of MOR antagonists, and the effect of chronic opioid administration has not been specifically assessed. There is considerable evidence that chronic exposure to exogenous opioids changes the response in both brain and gut.39 Whether MOR expression changes with chronic exposure in tumor cells or endothelial cells is unknown. Finally, although there may be evidence of a direct ...
G protein-coupled receptor desensitization and trafficking are important regulators of opioid receptor signaling that can dictate overall drug responsiveness in vivo. Furthermore, different μ-opioid receptor (μOR) ligands can lead to varying degrees of receptor regulation, presumably because of distinct structural conformations conferred by agonist binding. For example, morphine binding produces a μOR with low affinity for β-arrestin proteins and limited receptor internalization, whereas enkephalin analogs promote robust trafficking of both β-arrestins and the receptors. Here, we evaluate μOR trafficking in response to activation by a novel μ-selective agonist derived from the naturally occurring plant product, salvinorin A. It is interesting that this compound, termed herkinorin, does not promote the recruitment of β-arrestin-2 to the μOR and does not lead to receptor internalization. Moreover, whereas G protein-coupled receptor kinase overexpression can promote morphine-induced ...
Endogenous opioid-mediated reward pathways play a role in the development and maintenance of alcohol dependence. Eli Lilly and Company, a Cabernet client, therefore sought to determine whether a brain opioid-receptor antagonist (LY2196044 or LY) would reduce drinking in alcohol-dependent patients. The challenge was that pharmacotherapy of alcohol dependence shows widely divergent responses between patients, and part of this variability can be attributed to the underlying genotype. Response to the opioid-receptor antagonist naltrexone, for example, is predicted by a genetic variant of the mu-opioid receptor gene (OPRM1). Cabernet analyzed the effect of two genetic variants implicated in alcohol dependence, OPRM1 and DRD4 (dopamine-receptor subtype D4) on the efficacy of therapeutic response to LY. One OPRM1 genetic variant demonstrated an enhanced response to LY treatment when evaluated by changes in heavy drinking days (HDD), days of abstinence, or drinks per day. In addition, LY-treated ...
Delta and mu opioid receptors (DORs and MORs) are inhibitory G protein-coupled receptors that reportedly cooperatively regulate the transmission of pain messages by substance P and TRPV1-expressing pain fibers.

To elucidate the effect of an opioid on airway smooth muscle relaxant responses and its mechanism of action, we studied canine bronchial segments under isometric conditions in vitro. Addition of the opioid mu-receptor-specific agonist DAMGO (10(-5) M) or Tyr-D-Arg-phe-Lys-NH2 (10(-5) M) did not alter the resting tension or the contractile responses to Ach but augmented the relaxation induced by isoproterenol: the concentrations of isoproterenol required to produce a half-maximal effect were decreased from 1.9 +/- 0.6 x 10(-6) to 3.1 +/- 1.0 x 10(-7) M (P , .01) by DAMGO and from 2.1 +/- 0.4 x 10(-6) M to 4.3 +/- 0.7 x 10(-7) M (P , .01), by Tyr-D-Arg-phe-Lys-NH2. This effect of DAMGO was concentration-dependent and was abolished by naloxone or Cys2, Tyr3, Orn5, Pen7-amide, a mu-receptor antagonist. DAMGO likewise caused a leftward displacement of concentration-response curves for forskolin but was without effect on those for 3-isobutyl-3-methylxanthine and 8-bromo-cAMP. Also, DAMGO did not ...

By contrast, in brain, a postmitotic organ, there was virtually no such age-related increase, i.e., from 4.8X10^-5 in young animals to 5.0X10^-5 in old ones [primary source]. age group: 3-8 months (young), 16-21 months (middle), and 25-34 months (old ...
Opioids are the gold-standard treatment for severe pain. However, potentially life-threatening side effects decrease the safety and effectiveness of these compounds. The addiction liability of these drugs has led to the current epidemic of opioid abuse in the US. Extensive research efforts have focused on trying to dissociate the analgesic properties of opioids from their undesirable side effects. Splice variants of the mu opioid receptor (MOR), which mediates opioid actions, have unique pharmacological properties and anatomic distributions that make them attractive candidates for therapeutic pain relief. In this issue of the ...

Mu and kappa opioid receptors often show antagonism in the regulation of physiological responses and behavior, including aggressive behavior. We report here our studies of the effects of acute administration of the selective mu opioid receptor antagonist CTAP (1 and 2 mg/kg, s.c.) and the selective kappa opioid receptor antagonist nor-BNI (0.5 mg/kg, s.c.) on manifestations of aggressive behavior in male C57BL/6 J mice with short (three days) and long (20 days) experience of victory in intermale confrontations. Animals with short experience of aggression were insensitive to blockade of both mu and kappa receptors. In males with long experience of aggression, administration of CTAP led to dose-dependent increases in the latent period of attacks but had no effect on attack duration. Administration of nor-BNI had no effect on the behavior of males with prolonged experience of aggression in antagonistic confrontations. Possible changes in the sensitivity of opioid receptors in male C57BL/6 J mice ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cyclic somatostatin octapeptide analogues with high affinity and selectivity toward mu opioid receptors. AU - Gulya, K.. AU - Pelton, John T.. AU - Hruby, Victor J.. AU - Yamamura, Henry I.. PY - 1986/6/16. Y1 - 1986/6/16. N2 - A series of cyclic conformationally restricted penicillamine containing somatostatin octapeptide analogues have been prepared by standard solid phase synthetic techniques and tested for their ability to inhibit specific [125I]CGP 23,996 (des-Ala1-,Gly2-[desamino-Cys3Tyr11]-dicarba3,14- somatostatin), [3H]naloxone or [3H]DPDPE ([D-Pen2-D-Pen5]enkephalin) binding in rat brain membrane preparations. We now report structure-activity relationship studies with the syntheis of our most potent and selective mu opioid receptor compound DPheCysTyrDTrpOrnThrPenThrNH2, which we refer to as Cys2Tyr3Orn5Pen7-amide. While this octapeptide exhibited high affinity (IC50 = 2.80 nM) for an apparently single population of binding sites (nH = 0.89 ± 0.1) and exceptional ...
There is considerable controversy over whether μ-opioid receptor (MOPr) desensitization is homologous or heterologous and over the mechanisms underlying such desensitization. In different cell types MOPr desensitization has been reported to involve receptor phosphorylation by various kinases, including G-protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs), second messenger and other kinases as well as perturbation of the MOPr effector pathway by GRK sequestration of G protein βγ subunits or ion channel modulation. Here we report that in brainstem locus coeruleus (LC) neurons prepared from relatively mature rats (5-8 weeks old) rapid MOPr desensitization induced by the high-efficacy opioid peptides methionine enkephalin and DAMGO was homologous and not heterologous to α2-adrenoceptors and somatostatin SST2 receptors. Given that these receptors all couple through G proteins to the same set of G-protein inwardly rectifying (GIRK) channels it is unlikely therefore that in mature neurons MOPr desensitization ...
The mu-opioid system has a key role in hedonic and motivational processes critical to substance addiction. However, existing mu-opioid antagonists have had limited success as anti-addiction treatments. GSK1521498 is a selective and potent mu-opioid antagonist being developed for the treatment of overeating and substance addictions. In this study, 28 healthy participants were administered single doses of GSK1521498 20 mg, ethanol 0.5 g/kg body weight, or both in combination, in a double blind placebo controlled four-way crossover design. The primary objective was to determine the risk of significant adverse pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic (PK) interactions. The effects of GSK1521498 on hedonic and consummatory responses to alcohol and the attentional processing of alcohol-related stimuli, and their modulation by the OPRM1 A118G polymorphism were also explored. GSK1521498 20 mg was well tolerated alone and in combination with ethanol. There were mild transient effects of GSK1521498 on alertness and

Opioids are potent analgesic drugs prescribed to treat pain that ranges from moderate to severe. They have unwanted side effects, can lead to tolerance and dependence, and display addictive properties. Opioids function by acting on mu opioid receptors (MORs) located throughout the CNS. MOR is coupled to inhibitory heterotrimeric G proteins of the Gαi/o family, which have many downstream signaling effects, including inhibition of adenylyl cyclase. Regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins negatively modulate this receptor-mediated G protein signaling. One of the remaining questions regarding the effects of RGS proteins on MOR signaling is which, if any, Gαi/o protein subtype serves as the site of action for RGS protein inhibition of opioid signaling. To evaluate the role of one Gα subunit, Gαo, in the effects of RGS proteins on opioid signaling, MOR-mediated biochemistry was evaluated in mice that express an RGS- insensitive (RGSi), mutant Gαo protein (Gαo -RGSi). In particular, MOR ...

The pharmacological effects of opioids in opioid dependent individuals can vary as a function of the characteristics of the opioid being studied (e.g., whether it is an agonist, partial agonist, or antagonist; the dose administered; and the route of administration). Another important set of factors influencing the effects produced by opioids is the characteristics of the organism to which the opioid is being administered. One such characteristic is the level of physical dependence in individuals.. Participants in this study will be maintained on different dose levels of an opioid agonist (methadone). The participant will be challenged with a prototypic opioid agonist, antagonist, and a mixed agonist-antagonist with partial agonist features in order to determine the effects that each has on the human body. ...

The incidence of post-surgical chronic pain ranges between 20% and 40% in Europe. Osteoarthritis pain after prosthesis implantation is one of the most severe secondary syndromes, depending not only on surgery but also on organic changes before and after joints replacement. No data are available about risk factors. An excessive inflammatory response plays a central role but a best therapy is not defined yet. It is not clear whether opioid administration could influence post-surgical pain and lead to tolerance or addiction. Interestingly, the immune system, together with the nervous and peptidergic ones, is involved in hypersensibility. The connection across the three biological systems lies in the presence of opioid receptors on immune cells surface. Here, we show a method to analyze whether opioids could modulate lymphocytes, by proposing opioid receptors as biological markers to prevent chronic pain and opioid tolerance or addiction after hip surgery.

The µ-opioid receptor is the primary target structure of most opioid analgesics and thus responsible for the predominant part of their wanted and unwanted effects. Carriers of the frequent genetic µ-opioid receptor variant N40D (allelic frequency 8.2 - 17 %), coded by the single nucleotide polymorphism A,G at position 118 of the µ-opioid receptor coding gene OPRM1 (OPRM1 118A,G SNP), suffer from a decreased opioid potency and from a higher need of opioid analgesics to reach adequate analgesia. The aim of the present work was to identify the mechanism by which the OPRM1 118A,G SNP decreases the opioid potency and to quantify its effects on the analgesic potency and therapeutic range of opioid analgesics. To elucidate the consequences of the OPRM1 118A,G SNP for the effects of opioid analgesics, brain regions of healthy homozygous carriers of the OPRM1 118A,G SNP were identified by means of functional magnetic resonace imaging (fMRI), where the variant alters the response to opioid analgesics ...
The effect of the selective \(\mu\)-opioid agonist o-Ala\(^2\)-Me-Phe\(^4\)-Gly-ol-enkephalin (DAGO), injected into the medial preoptic nucleus of hypothalamus, on cardiac output and regional blood flow was studied in the conscious rat and the effect of DAGO on renal sympathetic nerve activity and renal blood flow was studied in anesthetized rats. In conscious rats, injections of DAGO (1 or 10 nmol) into the preoptic nucleus increased the blood pressure in a dose-related manner. The maximum rises of mean arterial pressure and pulse pressure after the larger dose were +23 ± 5 mmHg (mean ±SEM, P , 0.01) and + 17 ± 3 mmHg(P , 0.01), respectively. A small dose (0.1 nmol) increased heart rate ( +47 ± 13 bpm, P , 0.05); thc 1 nmol dosc produced bradycardia (- 39 ± 11 bpm, P , 0.05), while the 10 nmol dose initially decreased heart rate ( -68 ± 15 bpm (P , 0.01) and then gradually increased heart rate to a maximum of + 74 ± 13 bpm, (P , 0.0 1). A long-lasting increase in cardiac output was also ...

AP-237 (1-butyryl-4-cinnamylpiperazine) is an opioid analgesic drug that was widely used in China to treat pain in cancer patients as of 1986. It is one of the most potent compound among a series of analgesic acyl piperazines compounds first synthesized and reported in Japan in the 1970s. AP-237 has analgesic potency comparable to that of morphine but with a relatively higher therapeutic index. The drug were initially claimed to be a non-narcotic analgesic. However, subsequent studies have shown AP-237 and similar acyl piperazines to be potent and selective agonists of mu opioid receptor (MOR) with relatively low affinity for the delta opioid receptor and the kappa opioid receptor. In accordance with these studies, results from the intravenous self-administration experiments in rats showed that AP-237 has a marked reinforcing effect with tolerance and dependence quickly developing. In addition, the morphine antagonist naloxone reverses the effect of AP-237 and precipated withdrawal symptoms in ...

Opioid analgesic medications can bring substantial relief to patients suffering from pain. However, the inappropriate use, abuse, and diversion of prescription drugs in America, particularly prescription opioids, has increased dramatically in recent years and has been identified as a national public health epidemic. A set of clinical tools, guidelines, and recommendations are now available for prescribers who treat pain patients with opioids. By implementing these tools, clinicians can effectively address issues related to the clinical management of opioid prescribing, opioid risk management, regulations surrounding the prescribing of opioids, and problematic opioid use by patients. In doing so, healthcare professionals are more likely to achieve a balance between the benefits and risks of opioid prescribing, optimize patient attainment of therapeutic goals, and avoid the risk to patient outcome, public health, and viability of their own practice imposed by deficits in knowledge.

Fentanyl (1-phenethyl-4-N- propionylanilinopiperidine) is a potent but short-acting opioid receptor antagonist. It is estimated to be up to 75-100 times stronger than morphine but mainly affects µ-opioid receptors in the central nervous system. Medically, it is used for analgesia and anaesthesia.
Herein, the synthesis of novel conformationally constrained amino acids, 4-amino-8-bromo-2-benzazepin-3-one (8-Br-Aba), 3-amino-3,4-dihydroquinolin-2-one, and regioisomeric 4-amino-naphthoazepinones (1- and 2-Ana), is described. Introduction of these constricted scaffolds into the N-terminal tetrapeptide of dermorphin (i.e., H-Tyr-d-Ala-Phe-Gly-NH2) induced significant shifts in binding affinity, selectivity, and in vitro activity at the μ- and δ-opioid receptors (MOP and DOP, respectively). A reported constrained μ-/δ-opioid lead tetrapeptide H-Dmt-d-Arg-Aba-Gly-NH2 was modified through application of various constrained building blocks to identify optimal spatial orientations in view of activity at the opioid receptors ...
