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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Conditions for the equilibrium binding to opioid receptor of [3H]sufentanil (mu selective), [3H][D-Pen2,D-Pen5]enkephalin (delta selective), and [3H]U69,593 (kappa selective) were established in membranes from rat brain cerebrum, monkey cortex, or guinea pig cerebellum. The selectivity index of various opioid alkaloids and peptides in binding to the mu,(More)
In membranes from SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells differentiated with retinoic acid, the mu-selective agonist Tyr-D-Ala-Gly-N-Me-Phe-Gly-ol (DAMGO) inhibited cAMP formation with an IC50 of 26 nM. Two separate antibodies raised against distinct regions of the Go alpha sequence attenuated the effect of DAMGO by 50-60%, whereas antibodies to Gi alpha 1,2 or(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)
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)
