An opioid receptor is a g protein coupled receptor where the activation of a protein on the outside of a cell activates a cascade of chemical pathways within the cell opioid receptors are molecules or sites within the body that are activated by opioid substances. The opioid system consists of at least three distinct opioid receptors mu kappa and delta these receptors are widely distributed in the brain spinal cord and peripheral nociceptors at one time a fourth opioid receptor designated sigma was proposed but research has since proven this receptor to be an nmda subtype of the glutamate receptor. 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 natural chemicals associated with opiate receptors
