Molecular characterization and functional expression of opioid receptor-like1 receptor*
TLDR
Stimulation with ORL1 specific agonist, nociceptin/orphanin FQ, increased [35S]GTP γ S binding to SK-N-SH cell membranes, and attenuated, forskolin-stimulated accumulation of cellular cAMP, indicative that activation of OrL1 activates G proteins and inhibits adenylyl cyclase.
Isolation and structure of the endogenous agonist of opioid receptor-like ORL1 receptor
TLDR
Data indicate that the newly discovered heptadecapeptide is an endogenous agonist of the ORL1 receptor and that it may be endowed with pro-nociceptive properties.

Receptorphin: A conserved peptide derived from the sequence of the opioid receptor, with opioid displacement activity and potent antiproliferative actions in tumor cells
TLDR
This work identifies, for the first time a peptide, in a receptor sequence, possessing ligand-agonistic activities, derived from the sequence of the second transmembrane loop of the opioid receptor.

TLDR
Observations indicate that a cDNA encoding a rat kappa receptor of the kappa 1 subtype is cloned, and a mRNA distribution in rat brain that corresponded well to the distribution of binding sites labeled with kappa-selective ligands is revealed.
The delta-opioid receptor: isolation of a cDNA by expression cloning and pharmacological characterization.
TLDR
A random primed expression cDNA library was constructed from the RNA of NG 108-15 cells that encodes a 371-amino acid-residue protein presenting all the structural characteristics of receptors that interact with guanine nucleotide-binding proteins.

TLDR
RNA blotting studies and in situ hybridization histochemistry showed that kappa opioid receptor mRNA was expressed at high levels in brain in the neocortex, hippocampus, amygdala, medial habenula, hypothalamus, locus ceruleus, and parabrachial nucleus, suggesting that this receptor may play a role in arousal and regulation of autonomic and neuroendocrine functions.
Molecular cloning of a human cannabinoid receptor which is also expressed in testis.
TLDR
The ability to express the human cannabinoid receptor in mammalian cells should help in developing more selective drugs, and should facilitate the search for the endogenous cannabinoid ligand(s).
Selective amplification and cloning of four new members of the G protein-coupled receptor family.
TLDR
An approach based on the polymerase chain reaction has been devised to clone new members of the family of genes encoding guanosine triphosphate-binding protein (G protein)-coupled receptors, suggesting that they are members of a new subfamily of receptors with a very short nonglycosylated amino-terminal extension.
The molecular basis of opioid receptor function.
TLDR
Differences in the primary structure of mu-, delta-, and kappa-opioid receptors, as well as possible novel opioid receptor subtypes, will be defined by molecular cloning of recombinant DNA.
mu opiate receptor: cDNA cloning and expression.
TLDR
A 2.1-kb rat brain cDNA whose predicted translation product displays 63% identity with recently described delta and kappa opiate receptor sequences was identified through polymerase chain reaction and cDNA homology approaches.
