Biological Activity for Salvinorin B
Salvinorin B is a potent and selective κ-opioid DREADD (KORD) activator (EC50 = 11.8 nM). Selective for KORD over endogenous κ opioid receptor and a range of other related targets. Exhibits no analgesic or ataxic effects in wild type mice. Induces neuronal hyperpolarization, and modifies locomotor activity and feeding behavior in KORD-expressing mouse models. Brain penetrant. Metabolite of salvinorin A.

Great version that is easily dissolved in DMSO. Worked well in slice electrophysiology and produced reliable hyperpolarization in neurons expressing KOR DREADD at 100 nM.

Chemogenetics Research Bulletin
Produced by Tocris, the chemogenetics research bulletin provides an introduction to chemogenetic methods to manipulate neuronal activity. It outlines the development of RASSLs, DREADDs and PSAMs, and the use of chemogenetic compounds. DREADD ligands and PSEMs available from Tocris are highlighted.
GPCR Efficacy and Biased Agonism Poster
GPCRs can interact with multiple distinct transducers or regulatory proteins and these can be preferentially engaged in an agonist-specific manner giving rise to biased agonism. This poster discusses cutting edge GPCR signaling pharmacology and highlights therapeutic applications of biased agonism.
