A brief study of the selectivity of norbinaltorphimine, (-)-cyclofoxy, and (+)-cyclofoxy among opioid receptor subtypes in vitro.


Norbinaltorphimine (nor-BNI) is a bifunctional reagent developed as a selective antagonist of the kappa opioid receptor. In this paper we examined the in vitro selectivity of nor-BNI, 6-desoxy-6 beta-fluoronaltrexone (cycloFOXY), and the enantiomer of cycloFOXY, among opioid receptor subtypes. Nor BNI exhibited the highest affinity for kappa binding sites… (More)
