Cat. No. 1552
Alternative Name: [Nphe1,Arg14,Lys15]Nociceptin-NH2
Biological ActivityPotent, selective and competitive silent antagonist for the NOP opioid receptor. Binds to NOP with high affinity (pKi = 10.24) and displays > 3000-fold selectivity over δ, μ and κ opioid receptors. Antinociceptive and opposes the action of nociceptin in vivo.
(Modifications: Gly-1 = N-(Bn)Gly, Gln-17 = C-terminal amide)
