Biological Activity

Natural anti-inflammatory morphinan analog. Causes degranulation of mast cells in mammalian tissues to release histamine and suppresses production of proinflammatory cytokines. Also displays antinociceptive activity, possibly through activation of the μ-opioid receptor. Stimulates short-term renewal of human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in vitro.
