Opioid regulation of mu receptor internalisation: relevance to the development of tolerance and dependence.
TLDR
Experiments performed using both transfected cell systems and ex vivo/in vivo models have provided evidence that when morphine can promote internalisation of the mu receptor there is a decrease in the development of tolerance and dependence.
Receptor Endocytosis Counteracts the Development of Opioid Tolerance
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the endocytotic potencies of opioid drugs are negatively correlated with their ability to cause receptor desensitization and opioid tolerance in HEK 293 cells, and shown that agonist-induced receptor endocytic facilitates the compensatory up-regulation of the cAMP pathway, a cellular hallmark of opioid withdrawal.
Convallatoxin enhance the ligand-induced mu-opioid receptor endocytosis and attenuate morphine antinociceptive tolerance in mice
TLDR
Findings suggest convallatoxin are potentially therapeutic for morphine side effects and open a new avenue to study MOR trafficking.
Opioid receptor trafficking and interaction in nociceptors
TLDR
Analysis of the molecular, cellular and neural circuit mechanisms that regulate the trafficking and interaction of opioid receptors and related signalling molecules in the pain pathway would help to elucidate the mechanism of opiate analgesia and improve pain therapy.
Role of delivery and trafficking of delta-opioid peptide receptors in opioid analgesia and tolerance.
TLDR
Experiments in animals show that MOP-receptor-mediated spinal analgesia is enhanced and morphine tolerance does not develop when DOP receptor functions are pharmacologically or genetically attenuated, indicating that the delivery and trafficking of DOP receptors are crucial processes that modulate opioid analgesia and tolerance.

Morphine-activated opioid receptors elude desensitization by β-arrestin
TLDR
It is demonstrated that arrestins play a fundamental role in mediating this agonist-selective regulation of opioid receptors with arrestins and that morphine-activated μ receptors fail to undergo arrestin-dependent uncoupling from cognate G proteins.
Morphine-activated opioid receptors elude desensitization by beta-arrestin.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that arrestins play a fundamental role in mediating this agonist-selective regulation of opioid receptors with arrestins and that morphine-activated mu receptors fail to undergo arrestin-dependent uncoupling from cognate G proteins.
μ-Opioid receptor desensitization by β-arrestin-2 determines morphine tolerance but not dependence
TLDR
It is shown that in mice lacking β-arrestin-2, desensitization of the μ-opioid receptor does not occur after chronic morphine treatment, and that these animals fail to develop antinociceptive tolerance.
Mu-opioid receptor desensitization by beta-arrestin-2 determines morphine tolerance but not dependence.
TLDR
It is shown that in mice lacking beta-arrestin-2, desensitization of the mu-opioid receptor does not occur after chronic morphine treatment, and that these animals fail to develop antinociceptive tolerance.
Differential Opioid Agonist Regulation of the Mouse μ Opioid Receptor*
TLDR
The ability of methadone and buprenorphine to desensitize the μ receptor and block the compensatory rise in forskolin-stimulated cAMP accumulation may be an underlying mechanism by which these agents are effective in the treatment of morphine addiction.
Morphine Activates Opioid Receptors without Causing Their Rapid Internalization*
TLDR
The data indicate that agonist ligands, which have similar effects on receptor-mediated signaling, can have dramatically different effects on the intracellular trafficking of a G protein-coupled receptor.
Loss of morphine-induced analgesia, reward effect and withdrawal symptoms in mice lacking the µ-opioid-receptor gene
TLDR
Investigation of the behavioural effects of morphine reveals that a lack of μ receptors abolishes the analgesic effect of morphine, as well as place-preference activity and physical dependence, and concludes that the µ-opioid-receptor gene product is a mandatory component of the opioid system for morphine action.
