Mu-receptor binding in physiological media: comparison with isolated tissue data.

Mu-receptor affinities have been determined for a number of opioid drugs using a combination of isolated tissue and receptor binding techniques. The affinities of antagonists and partial agonists were determined by their ability to antagonise responses to [D-Ala2,MePhe4,Glyol5]enkephalin (GLYOL) on the rat vas deferens preparation. There was little… CONTINUE READING
