Fluorescent probes for opioid receptors.


Naloxone, naltrexone and oxymorphone were labeled in position 6 with fluorescein by coupling their hydrazone analogs with fluorescein isothiocyanate. Naloxone was also coupled in a similar way with rhodamine-B. The compounds thus obtained were: "6-FN", [1-(N)-fluoresceinyl naloxone thiosemicarbazone]; "6-FNX", [1-(N)-fluoresceinyl naltrexone… (More)
