Opioid receptors are a group of G protein coupled receptors which are used by the class of substances known as opioids. The aa sequence of the three opioid receptor subtypes bears ~70% homology and they have ~40% homology with somatostatin receptor SSTR1. The delta opioid receptor (delta-opioid receptor or DOR) has enkephalins as its endogenous ligands. It is distributed in various parts of the CNS as well as in some smooth muscles. It is known to mediate analgesia. These receptors have been shown to interact with beta-2 adrenergic receptors, arrestin beta 1 and GPRASP1. Delta opioid receptor agonists are considered to be potential anti-depressants.
