The binding parameters of radiolabeled DAMGO (mu), DPDPE and pCl-DPDPE (delta) and 5 alpha, 7 alpha, 8 beta-N-methyl-N-[7-(1- pyrrolidinyl)-1-oxaspiro(4,5)dec-8-yl]benzeneacetamide (also known as U69593, kappa) and the affinity and selectivity profiles of various opioid agonists and antagonists at the three opioid receptor types were determined in membranes(More)
In C6 glioma cells stably expressing a homogeneous population of the cloned rat mu opioid receptor, the binding affinities of opioid agonists and subsequent activation of G protein were examined. Opioid receptor number in membranes of these cells was high (10-30 pmol/mg protein [3H]diprenorphine binding sites). Opioids were found to bind to the receptor(More)
A C6 glioma cell line stably transfected with the human kappa opioid receptor (kappaOR) was used to characterize receptor binding and G protein activation via the kappaOR by a comprehensive series of opioid ligands. The ligand-binding affinity for [3H]5alpha,7alpha, 8beta(-)-N-methyl-N-(7-Cl-pyrrolidinyl)-1-oxaspiro(4, 5)dec-8-yl)benzene acetamide (U69593)(More)
A number of opiate antagonists and the dextro isomers of some of these drugs were studied for antagonism of acute opiate effects on ilea isolated from opiate-naive guinea pigs, precipitation of a withdrawal contraction of ilea isolated from morphine-dependent guinea pigs, precipitation of withdrawal in morphine-dependent rhesus monkeys and stereospecific(More)
Phencyclidine (PCP) displaceable binding of 3H-PCP to glass-fiber filters was eliminated and total binding markedly reduced by initial treatment of the discs with 0.05% polyethyleneimine. Assessed with treated filters, unlabeled PCP displaced 3H-PCP in both rat and pigeon brain membranes with an EC50 of 1 microM. Of similar high inhibitory potency were(More)
In C6 glial cells stably expressing rat mu-opioid receptor, opioid agonist activation is negatively coupled to adenylyl cyclase through pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins. In membranes, [D-Ala2, N-MePhe4,Gly-ol5]enkephalin (DAMGO) increases guanosine-5'-O-(3-[35S]thio)triphosphate (GTP[gamma-35S]) binding by 367% with an EC50 value of 28 nM. Prolonged(More)
The ability of endogenous opioids to activate G proteins was measured in membranes from C6 rat glioma cells stably expressing a cloned rat mu receptor. Peptides representing each of the three known families of endogenous opioids (enkephalins, endorphins and dynorphins) were studied, as well as two recently discovered endogenous opioids, endomorphin-1 and(More)
Bremazocine, [5R-(5,7,8 beta)]-N-methyl-N-[7-(1-pyrrolidinyl)1-oxaspiro [4,5]dec-8-yl]-4-benzofuranacetamide (Cl-977), (+-)-trans-3,4-dichloro-N- methyl-(2-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)-5-methoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydronapth++ +-1-yl benzeneacetamide methanesulfonate (DUP 747), ethylketocyclazocine (EKC), nalorphine, (+/-)-trans-N-methyl-N-[2-(1-(More)
The effects of the systemically active irreversible opioid receptor antagonist clocinnamox (C-CAM; 14 beta-(p-chlorocinnamoylamino)-7,8-dihydro-N- cyclopropylmethyl normorphinone mesylate) on mu receptor binding to cerebral membranes and on mu opioid analgesia were assessed using mice. After systemic administration, C-CAM produced a dose-dependent decrease(More)
