1-[(3R,4R)-1-cyclooctylmethyl-3-hydroxymethyl-4-piperidyl]-3-ethyl -1, 3-dihydro-2H-benzimidazol-2-one (J-113397) was found to be the first potent nonpeptidyl ORL1 receptor antagonist (K(i): cloned human ORL1=1.8 nM) with high selectivity over other opioid receptors (K(i): 1000 nM for human mu-opioid receptor, >10,000 nM for human delta-opioid receptor, and(More)
Introduction. Classical opioid receptors (µ, δ, and κ) have important physiological and pharmacological roles, especially in pain regulation. A fourth opioid receptor, opioid receptor-like 1 (ORL1), was identified in 1994 through cDNA expression cloning techniques. 1 ORL1 is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily with a high degree of amino(More)
J-113397 (1-[(3R,4R)-1-cyclooctylmethyl-3-hydroxymethyl-4-piperidyl]-3-ethyl-1,3-dihydro-2H-benzimidazol-2-one) is a recently developed antagonist of the opioid receptor-like 1 (ORL1) receptor. We compared the in vitro functional profile J-113397 on [35S]guanosine 5'-O-(gamma-thio)triphosphate (GTPgammaS) binding to mouse brain with that of(More)
