Types of opioid opiate receptors the four major subgroups of opiate receptors are delta kappa mu and nociceptin in effect each partake in the controlling of different functions of the brain in fact opiates and endorphins block pain signals by binding to the mu receptor site. Opioid receptors have been targeted for the treatment of pain and related disorders for thousands of years and remain the most widely used analgesics in the clinic mu u kappa and delta opioid receptors represent the originally classified receptor subtypes with opioid receptor like 1 orl1 being the least characterized. Both opioid and chemokine receptors belong to the class of g protein coupled seven transmembrane receptors gpcrs there is a body of work showing that these two sub types of gpcrs can cross desensitize each other thus when an opioid receptor binds its ligand it blocks a chemokine receptor from signaling when it binds its chemokine ligand. Opiate receptors are a group of special proteins found in the brain spinal cord and gastrointestinal tract these receptors connect with certain amino acids that are naturally produced by the body to initiate specific results opiate receptors are also affected by external opiates
