Adrenorphin (metorphamide) is a potent inhibitor of nicotine-induced adrenaline and noradrenaline release with IC50 value of 10 μM [1].

Adrenorphin (metorphamide) is an endogenous, C-terminally amidated, opioid octapeptide (Tyr-Gly-Gly-Phe-Met-Arg-Arg-Val-NH2) that is produced from proteolytic cleavage of proenkephalin A and is widely distributed throughout the mammalian brain [2].

Adrenorphin (metorphamide) is selective nicotine-induced adrenaline and noradrenaline release inhibitor and has higher than 100-fold more potent than the reported nicotine-induced adrenaline and noradrenaline release inhibitor Met5-enkephalin. When tested with bovine adrenal chromaffin cells, Adrenorphin (metorphamide) showed inhibition on 5 μM nicotine-induced ATP release by almost 50% at 5μM and the inhibition was not in a dose-dependent manner [1]. In bioassays and binding assays, Metorphamide exhibited high μ-binding activity, as well as κ-binding activity with nearly half percent toμ-binding activity, while showed no activity on δ-binding [2].

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
