5'-Guanidinonaltrindole (GNTI) is an opioid antagonist used in scientific research which is highly selective for the κ opioid receptor. It is 5x more potent and 500 times more selective than the commonly used κ-opioid antagonist norbinaltorphimine.[1] It has a slow onset and long duration of action,[2][3] and produces antidepressant effects in animal studies.[4] It also increases allodynia by interfering with the action of the κ-opioid peptide dynorphin.[5]
