  • RelevanceBeta-endorphin is an endogenous opioid peptide neurotransmitter found in the neurons of both the central and peripheral nervous system. ß-endorphin is a peptide, 31 amino acids long, resulting from processing of the precursor pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). ß-endorphin is found in neurons of the hypothalamus as well as the pituitary gland. It is an agonist of the opioid receptors, with evidence suggesting that it serves as the endogenous ligand of the µ-opioid receptor, the same receptor to which the chemicals extracted from opium, such as morphine and codeine, have their analgesic and addictive effects
