Tritium-labeled selective agonist of non-opioid β-endorphin receptor, the decapeptide immunorphine ([2H]SLTCLVKGFY) with specific activity of 24 Ci/mmol has been prepared. By its use, non-opioid β-endorphin receptors were revealed and characterized on mouse peritoneal macrophages and rat myocardium, spleen, adrenal, and brain membranes. The non-opioid β-endorphin receptor of macrophages has in addition to immunorphine (K d of the [2H]immunorphinereceptor complex was 2.4 ± 0.1 nM) and… CONTINUE READING
