Delta-opioid peptide receptors in muscles from obese diabetic and normal mice

Peptides (Tarrytown) 16(2): 361-364

Delta-opioid peptide receptors in muscles from obese diabetic and normal mice

Autoradiography was used to study the opioid receptors in soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles from normal mice and mice with type II diabetes. Binding sites for (125I)beta-endorphin were present on the surface membranes in muscles from normal mice. The density of receptors was higher in muscles from obese diabetic mice. The specific delta-opioid ligands DPDPE and (D-Ala-2)deltorphin-II inhibited the binding of (125I)beta-endorphin whereas mu and kappa agonists did not. Therefore, the opioid receptor present in skeletal muscle fibers of the mouse is of the 6 subtype and the number of these receptors is increased in type II diabetes in the mouse.

Based on non-competitive binding interactions we suggested that mu and delta receptors associate as a mu/delta receptor complex in rat brain. We hypothesized that the same non-competitive binding interactions observed in rat brain will be seen in...

One of the mouse brain deltaNCX binding sites is similar to the cloned mouse opioid delta receptor: further evidence for heterogeneity of delta opioid receptors. Quantitative ligand binding studies resolved two subtypes of the delta opioid receptor, termed delta(ncx1) and delta(ncx2), in mouse brain membranes depleted of mu receptors by pretreatment with the irreversible ligand, BIT. The purpose of the pre...
