Abstract

The effect of the divalent cations, Mn2+, Mg2+ and Ca2+ on rat forebrain δ-, μ- and χ-receptor binding was examined during postnatal development. It was found that δ-receptor binding, assessed with [3H]d-Ala2-d-Leu5-enkephalin ([3H]DADLE) (+10 nM d-Ala2-MePhe4-Gly-ol5-enkephalin (DAMGE)), was stimulated by the 3 cations in a dose- and developmental time-dependent manner. δ-Binding was most sensitive to the cations during the first week postnatal, prior to the appearance of high-affinity δ-binding. In contrast, inhibition of μ-receptor binding ([3H]DAMGE) by divalent cations appeared early in development and remained constant throughout the postnatal period. Divalent cation inhibition of χ-binding ([3H]ethylketocyclazocine ([3H]EKC) +100 nM DAMGE and 100 nM DADLE) appeared after the second week postnatal. These results demonstrate that the characteristics and postnatal development of divalent cation modulation of μ-, δ- and χ-binding is distinctly different. Thus, the neonate may be a good model system to examine the binding properties and functions of δ- and χ-receptor subtypes.
