Abstract

We investigated the effects of SNC 80 ((+)-4-[alpha R)-alpha-((2S,5R)-3-allyl-2,5-dimethyl-1-piperazinyl)-3-methoxybenzyl]-N,N-diethyl-benzamide), a new highly selective, non-peptidic and systemically active delta-opioid receptor agonist, on gastrointestinal and colonic propulsion in mice. Intraperitoneally (i.p.) SNC 80(1, 10 and 30 mg/kg) significantly decreased gastrointestinal propulsion measured as transit of an orally administered charcoal meal. Pretreatment with the delta-opioid receptor antagonist, naltrindole (1 mg/kg) subcutaneously (s.c.), with the non-selective opioid antagonist, naloxone (5 mg/kg, s.c.) or the mu(1)-opioid receptor antagonist, naloxonazine(10 mg/kg, i.p.), significantly decreased the antitransit effect of SNC 80 but pretreatment with the non-selective opioid antagonist, naloxone methiodide (5 mg/kg, s.c.), a quaternary salt of naloxone that does not cross the blood-brain barrier, did not. SNC 80 (1, 5 and 10 mg/kg, i.p.). produced dose-related inhibition of colonic propulsion measured as the increase in mean expulsion time of a 3 mm glass bead placed in the distal colon. Naloxone (5 mg/kg, s.c.) and naltrindole (1 mg/kg, s.c.), completely antagonized the colonic antipropulsive effect of SNC 80. In contrast, naloxone methiodide (5 mg/kg, s.c,), left the inhibitory effect of i.p. SNC 80 on colonic function unchanged. These results suggest that peripherally injected SNC 80 inhibits gastrointestinal transit and colonic propulsion. it does so mainly through a central mechanism. Although the gastrointestinal antitransit effect of SNC 80 is naltrindole- and naloxonazine-sensitive, we cannot exclude an opioid-independent mechanism. The colonic antipropulsive effect of SNC 80 confirms the inhibitory role of the central delta-opioid receptor system on colonic motility. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
