Morphiceptin 

Cat. No.: HY-P1701
Handling Instructions

Morphiceptin is a potent and specific agonist for morphine (μ) receptors. Morphiceptin, as a synthetic peptide, is the amide of a fragment of the milk protein β-casein. Morphiceptin has morphinelike activities and is highly specific for morphine (μ) receptors but not for enkephalin (⸹) receptors.

Description

Morphiceptin is a potent and specific agonist for morphine (μ) receptors. Morphiceptin, as a synthetic peptide, is the amide of a fragment of the milk protein β-casein. Morphiceptin has morphinelike activities and is highly specific for morphine (μ) receptors but not for enkephalin (⸹) receptors[1].

IC50 & Target

Morphine (μ) Receptor[1]

In Vivo

Morphiceptin potently inhibits the binding of [3H]dihydromorphine, 125I-labeled FK33824, and [3H]naloxone to rat brain membrane preparations with a 50 percent inhibition concentration (IC50) of about 20 nM[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
