Protein aggregation is an established pathogenic mechanism in Alzheimer's disease, but little is known about the initiation of this process in vivo. Intracerebral injection of dilute, amyloid-beta (Abeta)-containing brain extracts from humans with Alzheimer's disease or beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) transgenic mice induced cerebral beta-amyloidosis(More)
Coding region and intronic mutations in the tau gene cause frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17. Some of these mutations lead to an overproduction of tau isoforms with four microtubule-binding repeats. Here we have expressed the longest four-repeat human brain tau isoform in transgenic mice under the control of the murine Thy1(More)
SDZ GLC-756, a novel octahydrobenzo[g]quinoline derivative, is equipotent in displacing [3H]SCH23390 from dopamine D1 receptors and [3H]205–501 from dopamine D2 receptor binding sites. It blocks dopamine sensitive adenylate cyclase with the same potency as SCH23390, indicating antagonist properties at dopamine D1 receptors. On the other hand, SDZ GLC 756(More)
Animals with 6-hydroxydopamine-induced partial unilateral lesions of the substantia nigra exhibit spontaneous recovery from motor asymmetry, a transitory increase in dopamine turnover and an increase in tyrosine hydroxylase activity in the denervated striatum. The recovery of function in these animals seems to be due to the compensatory increase in dopamine(More)
Neurochemical and neuropharmacological investigations with four ergot derivatives reveal differential pharmacodynamic effects of these compounds. Bromocriptine and CM 29-712 showed actions typical of postsynaptic dopamine receptor stimulants, in particular in the extrapyramidal system. CM 29-712 proved to be more potent than bromocriptine, with an early(More)
A new two-step sequence for the epimerization of methyl dihydrolysergate (5) at C-8 leading to methyl dihydroisolysergate (7) is presented. The latter compound was used as a starting material for the synthesis of various ergolines, of which (5R,8R,10R)-8-(cyanomethyl)-6-methylergoline (4) is a very strong and long-lasting central dopaminergic agent.(More)
Intravenous injection of 0.1 mg/kg clonidine into rats under urethane anaesthesia induced a prompt and long-lasting release of growth hormone, estimated by radioimmunoassay (IRGH), which could be abolished by 0.2 mg/kg phentolamine given into the 3rd ventricle. Injection of 3 μg/kg clonidine into the 3rd ventricle stimulated also the release of IRGH(More)
CK 204-933 displaces [3H]dopamine and [3H]spiperone with high affinity from D-1 and D-2 recognition sites in membranes of calf caudate. Results from functional in vitro tests suggest that it is a partial agonist at D-1 receptors and an antagonist at D-2 receptors. These opposite effects at dopamine receptor subtypes are also expressed in vivo. For instance,(More)
