Biological Activity

Description Naltrexone HCl(PTI-901) is an opioid receptor antagonist used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence.
opioid receptor [1]
8 nM
In vivo

Naltrexone (0.32 mg/kg) reduces ethanol-reinforced responding at the concentration that maintained the most responding (1% or 2%) in rhesus monkeys. Naltrexone (0.1 mg/kg) reduces ethanol-reinforced responding, both at a low ethanol concentration (0.25%) that produced little ethanol intake (g/kg), and at a higher concentration (4%) with an appreciable intake. [1] Naltrexone (1-3 mg/kg) potently and dose-dependently inhibits reinstatement of ethanol-seeking produced by non-contingent deliveries of the liquid dipper filled with 8% ethanol. [2] Naltrexone elicits optimal enhancement of morphine's antinociceptive potency in mice when co-administered (i.p.) at about 100 ng/kg together with morphine (3 mg/kg). [3] Naltrexone (10 ng/kg i.p.) augments the antinociception produced by an acute submaximal dose of intrathecal (5 mg) or systemic (7.5 mg/kg i.p.) morphine in the tail-flick test in rats. Naltrexone combined with Morphine inhibits the decline in morphine antinociception and prevented the loss of morphine potency in rats. [4] Naltrexone significantly suppresses ethanol self-administration and prevents ethanol-induced increases in dialysate dopamine levels. [5] Naltrexone completely prevents the reduction in anogenital distance in prenatally stressed (PS) males and restores the growth rate of both sexes. Naltrexone also decreases the anxiety of PS rats in the plus-maze, increases the opioid component of exploration to control levels, but increases anxiety in control males. [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.
