Chronic pain researchers first to link regulatory protein to opioid receptor signaling

Initial confirmation has been found that a novel scaffold protein previously unassociated with the mu opioid receptor (MOR) regulates MOR-induced signaling activation. The MOR is the target of opioid drugs like morphine and is an important mechanism for pain regulation in the body. The research approach was designed to open new avenues to the treatment of chronic pain, a serious public health problem with major economic and societal costs.
