Abstract

In vitro characterization and comparison of JDTic, its dehydroxy analogue and nor-BNI, and its dehydroxy analogue demonstrates that the N-substituted 3,4-dimethyl-(3-hydroxyphenyl)-piperidine-derived antagonist, JDTic, relies more heavily on its phenol address group for affinity and antagonist activity relative to the corresponding naltrexone derived antagonists, nor-BNI. The structural flexibility of the former class of compound relative to the latter is postulated to underlie the difference
