  • The binding characteristics of the kappa opioid ligands [3H]U69,593 and [3H]bremazocine, the mu opioid ligand [3H][D-ala2,N-Me-Phe4,glycol5]enkephalin and the delta opioid ligand [3H]p-Cl-[D-pen2,5]enkephalin were studied in rhesus monkey brain membranes in saturation binding experiments and were followed by competition binding experiments with a variety of peptidic and nonpeptidic opioid ligands. The [3H]U69,593 sites appeared to be a subset of kappa opioid receptors (kappa-1 receptors: Kd, 1… CONTINUE READING
