(±)-U-50488 hydrochloride is a selective agonist for κ-opioid receptor .
The κ-opioid receptor (KOR) is a type of opioid receptor for opioid peptide dynorphin and controls addiction. Also, KOR plays an important role in stress, anxiety, anhedonia, depression and increased drug-seeking behavior.
(±)-U-50488 hydrochloride is a selective KOR agonist . In isolated rat DRG neurons, U-50488 (0.3-40 μM) inhibited voltage-independent Ca2+ channel currents. In HeLa cells that didn’t express KOR, U-50488 (20 μM) blocked Ca2+ channels .
In rhesus monkeys, U-50488 exhibited potent antinociceptive activity and produced diuresis . U-50488 enhanced contraction of the rabbit vas deferens induced by electrically with IC50 value of 26.5 nM. In mice, U-50488 impaired motor function with ED50 value of 15.3 mg/kg and reduced spontaneous activity . In adult rats, U-50488 increased the threshold required to maintain self-stimulation responding, a depressive-like effect. While, males were significantly more sensitive than females to the threshold-increasing effects .
