ORG-27569 is a drug which acts as a potent and selective allosteric modulator of the cannabinoid CB1 receptor. Studies in vitro suggest that it binds to a regulatory site on the CB1 receptor target, causing a conformational change that increases the binding affinity of CB1 agonists such as CP 55, 940, while decreasing the binding affinity of CB1 antagonists or inverse agonists such as rimonabant. However while Org 27569 increases the ability of CB1 agonists to bind to the receptor, it decreases their efficacy at stimulating second messenger signalling once bound, and so in practice behaves as an insurmountable antagonist of CB1 receptor function.

How to use
Org 27569 is an allosteric modulator of CB1 cannabinoid receptor. It significantly increases the binding of CB1 receptor agonist and causes a significant decrease in specific binding of CB1 receptor inverse agonist. Org 27569 induces CB1 high affinity agonist binding, receptor internalization, and downstream ERK phosphorylation. The allosteric ligand Org 27569 promotes agonist binding to CB1, yet blocks the agonist-induced conformational changes in TM6. Org 27569 traps the receptor in a distinct agonist-bound, but nonsignaling conformational state.
