Biological Activity

Description JTC-801 is a selective opioid receptor-like1 (ORL1) receptor antagonist with IC50 of 94 nM, weakly inhibits receptors δ, κ, and μ.
Opioid receptor-like1 (ORL1) [1]
94 nM
In vitro

JTC-801 displays about 12.5-, 129-, and 1055-fold selectivity for ORL1 receptor (Ki = 8.2 nM) over μ-, κ-, and δ-opioid receptors, respectively. JTC-801 does not inhibit forskolin-stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation in human ORL1 receptor-expressing HeLa cells, but it prevents nociceptin-induced inhibition of cyclic AMP accumulation, indicating that JTC-801 possesses full antagonistic activity. [2] In rat cerebrocortical membrane, JTC-801 inhibits ORL1 receptor with IC50 of 472 nM and μ-receptor with IC50 of 1831 nM. JTC-801 completely antagonizes the suppression of nociceptin on forskolin-induced accumulation of cyclic AMP with IC50 of 2.58 μM in HeLa cells expressing ORL1 receptor. [1]

In vivo Oral administration of JTC-801 (0.3-3 mg/kg) antagonizes nociceptin-induced allodynia in mice, and shows analgesic effect in a hot plate test using mice and in a formalin test using rats. [2] In mouse hot-plate test, JTC-801 prolongs escape response latency (ERL) or exposed heat stimulus with minimum effective doses (MED) of 0.01 mg/kg by i.v. or 1 mg/kg by p.o. In the rat formalin test, JTC-801 reduces both the first and second phases of the nociceptive response with MED of 0.01 mg/kg71 by i.v. or 1 mg/kg by p.o. [1] JTC-801 dose-dependently normalizes paw withdrawal latency (PWL). Although JTC-801 does not inhibit a chronic constriction injury (CCI)-induced decrease in bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD), it inhibits an increase in the number of osteoclasts. [3] Tactile allodynia induced by L5/L6 spinal nerve ligation is reversed by both systemic (3-30 mg/kg) and spinal (22.5 and 45 pg) JTC-801 in a dose-dependent manner. Furthermore, systemic JTC-801 reduces Fos-like immunoreactivity in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord (laminae I/II). [4] JTC-801 produces dose-dependent mechanical and cold anti-allodynic effects with ED50 of 0.83 mg/kg and 1.02 mg/kg, respectively. [6]

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
