Opioid Analgesics: Chemistry and Receptors

The swiftly burgeoning learn of the previous twenty years on agonist-antagonist analgesics and opioid receptors makes this exhaustive assessment of opioid anal­ gesics rather proper and well timed. After an introductory bankruptcy the extra 12 chapters commence logically with morphine and congeners (4- epoxymorphinans) and finish with opioid receptors.

Much of the debate on this topic centres around potential artefacts generated either by cell fractionation or by histochemical methodologies. Good discussion of the former can be found in Refs. 3 and 4, and the latter in Refs. 5 and 6. Additional support for the nuclear model derives from experiments in which cultured cells are enucleated without homogenization [7]. Androgens and mineralocorticoids have not 31 yet entered the controversy as antibodies suitable for histochemistry have yet to be identified.

Introduction The minor revolution in our knowledge about molecular aspects of steroid hormone action that has occurred in recent years has led to the questioning of some long-held dogmas, the confirmation of others and the introduction of several new concepts.

There is evidence [S2] that there are at least two forms of cyt P-450 involved with aromatization. Likewise, there is evidence for different aromatases in human placenta which catalyse the production of oestrone and oestriol from 4-androstenedione and 16a-hydroxytestosterone, respectively. Each enzyme system has been subfractionated into its own cyt P-450and cyt P-450 reductase [107]. This has been supported recently by Purohit and Oakey [ 1081, who measured aromatase activity for 16a-hydroxy-4-androstenedione and 4-androstenedione in the presence or absence of the other substrate.
