Increased Agonist Affinity at the μ-Opioid Receptor Induced by Prolonged Agonist Exposure

Research about Salvia divinorum. Salvia leaves contain over a dozen unique chemicals, including salvinorin-A, which is the most potent naturally occurring psychedelic substance known. It is about 10 times more potent than psilocybin, for instance. Salvinorin A is a selective kappa opioid receptor agonist, which is unlike any other psychoactive substance. Drugs like psilocybin, LSD, and MDMA produce their psychedelic effects by activating part of the serotonin system. Salvia does not affect…

The κOR is a type of opioid receptor that binds dynorphin. The κOR may provide a natural addiction control mechanism, & therefore, drugs that act as agonists and increase activation of this receptor may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of addiction. κOR agonists are dysphoric, but dysphoria from κ-opioid receptor agonists has been shown to differ between the sexes.κ-Opioid receptor ligands are also known for their diuretic effects, due to their negative regulation of ADH.

The μOR bind enkephalins & beta-endorphin but has low affinity for dynorphins.The μOR exist presynaptically in the periaqueductal gray region, & in the superficial dorsal horn of the spinal cord (substantia gelatinosa of Rolando). μOR are also found in the intestinal tract & cause constipation. Activation of the μ receptor by morphine causes analgesia, sedation, slightly reduced blood pressure, itching, nausea, euphoria, decreased respiration, & miosis. Overdoses can cause circulatory…
