High affinity μ
-opioid receptor agonist with peripheral selectivity (Ki
values are 2, 48 and 1156 nM for μ
- and κ
-opioid receptors respectively). Antidiarrhoeal and antihyperalgesic agent. Also a Ca2+
channel blocker; at low micromolar concentrations it blocks broad spectrum neuronal HVA Ca2+
channels and at higher concentrations it reduces Ca2+
flux through NMDA receptor operated channels.
