Immunoaffinity-purified opiate receptor specifically binds the δ-class opiate receptor ligand, cis-(+)-3-methylfentanylisothiocyanate, SUPERFIT

Academic Article


  • Using an antibody generated against the opiate receptor on NG108-15 cells, we recently purified the putative receptor from this hybrid cell line. We herein report that the purified receptor complex specifically binds tritiated cis-(+)-3-methylfentanylisothiocyanate (SUPERFIT), with the predominant binding associated with a 58 kDa polypeptide chain. Consistent with these findings is the in situ labeling of a 58 kDa protein with [3H]SUPERFIT on NG108-15 cells. © 1987.
