mu opioid receptor

A receptor on the surface membrane of nerve cells that mediates opioid analgesia, tolerance, and addiction through drug-induced activation.

When an opioid agonist, or partial agonist (e.g., Buprenorphine), binds to a mu opioid receptor, a series of other proteins associated with the mu receptor-signaling pathway becomes activated.

Other opioid receptors are the delta and kappa receptors.
