Three types of opioid receptors have been cloned -- mu, delta, and kappa. Opioid receptors are seven transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors. They share a high degree of homology and are most divergent at the N- and C-termini. Activation of mu opioid receptors leads to a decrease in neuronal excitability. Several C-terminal splice variants have been identified for the Mu Opioid Receptor (MOR1) including MOR1C. These splice variants appear to differ in their pharmacological selectivity as well as their membrane trafficking.
