The present study was designed to investigate the role of mu-opioid receptor subtypes in the motivational effect of endogenous mu-opioid receptor ligands, endomorphin-1 and -2. In C57BL/6J mice, endomorphin-1 produced a significant place preference, whereas endomorphin-2 exhibited a significant place aversion. These effects were abolished by a mu1/mu2-opioid receptor antagonist beta-funaltrexamine. Under these conditions, both endomorphin-1 and -2 produced their motivational effects in mu1-opioid receptor-deficient CXBK mice, indicating the mu2-opioid receptor involvement. Furthermore, in the lower midbrain including ventral tegmental area, both endomorphin-1 and -2 equally produced dose-related increases in guanosine-5'-o-(3-(35S) thio) triphosphate bindings in C57BL/6J and CXBK mice. These findings indicate that endomorphin-1 and -2 may produce distinct motivational effects via respective mu2-opioid receptor isoforms in the mouse. Furthermore, endomorphin-1 and -2 produced the mu1-resistant G-protein activation in the mouse lower midbtrain.
