Background The skin of South American frogs belonging to the genus Phyllomedusinae has been found to secrete several gene-encoded opioid peptides that contain a D-amino acid in position 2 of their sequence. Dermorphin, Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Gly-Tyr-Pro-Ser-NH2, dermenkephalin/deltorphin A, Tyr-D-Met-Phe-His-Leu-Met-Asp-NH2 and the deltorphins, Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Xaa-Val-Val-Gly-NH2 (where Xaa is either Asp or Glu) are highly potent at, and exquisitely selective, for the mu- and delta-opioid receptors. Dermorphin peptides are potent analgesics in rodents and primates, including man. Some dermorphins can enter the blood-brain barrier and produce central antinociception after peripheral administration. The dermorphin family also includes mu 1-opioid receptor selective agonists that produce intense opioid analgesia, but stimulate pulmonary ventilation. Experiments in rats and mice chronically exposed to dermorphins have shown that not only do they have higher antinociceptive efficacy and potency than morphine, but they are also less likely than morphine to produce tolerance, dependence and opiate side effects.
