μ opioid and CB1 cannabinoid receptor interactions: reciprocal inhibition of receptor signaling and neuritogenesis
1 Several studies have described functional interactions between opioid and cannabinoid receptors; the underlying mechanism(s) have not been well explored. One possible mechanism is directExpand

A role for heterodimerization of μ and δ opiate receptors in enhancing morphine analgesia
Opiates such as morphine are the choice analgesic in the treatment of chronic pain. However their long-term use is limited because of the development of tolerance and dependence. Due to itsExpand

A role for heterodimerization of mu and delta opiate receptors in enhancing morphine analgesia.
Opiates such as morphine are the choice analgesic in the treatment of chronic pain. However their long-term use is limited because of the development of tolerance and dependence. Due to itsExpand

Increased Abundance of Opioid Receptor Heteromers After Chronic Morphine Administration
The μ-δ opioid heteromer may be a target for alleviation of chronic pain. Drug-Induced Heteromers Opioid receptors are G protein–coupled receptors and are divided into μ, δ, and κ subtypes. HomomersExpand

Oligomerization of opioid receptors with beta 2-adrenergic receptors: a role in trafficking and mitogen-activated protein kinase activation.
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have recently joined the list of cell surface receptors that dimerize. Dimerization has been shown to alter the ligand-binding, signaling, and traffickingExpand

D2 Receptors Regulate Dopamine Transporter Function via an Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinases 1 and 2-Dependent and Phosphoinositide 3 Kinase-Independent Mechanism
The dopamine transporter (DAT) terminates dopamine (DA) neurotransmission by reuptake of DA into presynaptic neurons. Regulation of DA uptake by D2 dopamine receptors (D2R) has been reported. TheExpand

Hemopressin is an inverse agonist of CB1 cannabinoid receptors
To date, the endogenous ligands described for cannabinoid receptors have been derived from membrane lipids. To identify a peptide ligand for CB1 cannabinoid receptors, we used the recently describedExpand
