  • FunctionNociceptin: Ligand of the opioid receptor-like receptor OPRL1. It may act as a transmitter in the brain by modulating nociceptive and locomotor behavior. May be involved in neuronal differentiation and development.
    Nocistatin: Blocks nociceptin action in pain transmission by inhibiting nociceptin-induced hyperalgesia and allodynia.
    Orphanin FQ2: Has potent analgesic activity.
  • Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in the brain and spinal cord. Also expressed and secreted by peripheral blood neutrophils following degranulation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the opioid neuropeptide precursor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Specific enzymatic cleavages at paired basic residues probably yield other active peptides besides nociceptin.
    The N-terminal domain contains 6 conserved cysteines thought to be involved in disulfide bonding and/or processing.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
  • Information by UniProt
