Abstract

By selective labelling techniques together with analysis of saturation curves it is shown that the concentrations of the μ-, δ- and χ-binding sites increase during postnatal development particularly in the first few weeks after birth. There are little or no changes in affinity. The rate of development is different for each type of site. The most striking finding is that the development of μ- and χ-sites precedes that of δ-sites.
