We have investigated the potential role of neurotrophic factors in antipsychotic drug action by examining the effects of antipsychotic and psychotropic treatments on the mRNA expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), and their receptors, trkB and trkC, respectively, in rat brain. Neither acute nor chronic clozapine(More)
The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of glutamate receptor mediates fast excitatory neurotransmission, and agents that attenuate this function are neuroprotective, anesthetic, and psychotropic. To determine whether cAMP regulatable transcription factors play a role in the neurochemical actions of agents acting through NMDA receptors, the effects of the(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor function appears to be under complex control during physiological and pharmacological states. We have investigated the effects of acute administration of uncompetitive NMDA receptor antagonists on mRNA levels of NMDA receptor subunits and on molecules known to cluster or phosphorylate the receptor utilizing in situ(More)
We have characterized excitatory effects of non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonists MK-801, PCP, and ketamine in the rat entorhinal cortex and in cultured primary entorhinal cortical neurons using expression of immediate early gene c-fos as an indicator. NMDA receptor antagonists produced a strong and dose-dependent increase in c-fos mRNA and protein(More)
LY395153 is a member of a newly described class of arylpropylsulfonamide AMPA receptor potentiators. Here, we characterize and compare [(3)H]LY395153 binding to native AMPA receptors from rat cerebral cortex and recombinant human GluR4(flip) receptors expressed in HEK293 cells. L-Glutamate and AMPA increased [(3)H]LY395153 binding to both native and(More)
Administration of the non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist MK-801 (5-methyl-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo[1,d]cyclohepten-5,10-imine) produces paradoxical neurotoxicity in limbic cortical regions which includes the entorhinal cortex. The expression of NMDAR-2C but not -2A, -2B or -2D subunits was significantly decreased in rat entorhinal cortex layer III(More)
We have observed that systemic treatment with the uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist MK-801 increases Src expression and NMDA receptor phosphorylation in rat brain. A partial cDNA encoding rat neuronal Src was isolated and its sequence was used to design specific oligonucleotide probes. Systemically administered MK-801 (5 mg/kg(More)
