A comparison was made of human postmortem muscarinic-cholinergic, beta-adrenergic and serotonergic (presynaptic) recognition sites in cortical tissues derived from suicide and homicide (control) victims. An elevation of 47% and 35% in the suicide group compared to controls was observed in receptor ligand binding for 3H-quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB,(More)
The effects of loxapine and its hydroxylated metabolites 7-hydroxyloxapine and 8-hydroxyloxapine on 3H-spiroperidol binding to rat striatal membranes were investigated. Whereas 7-hydroxyloxapine and loxapine displayed strong affinities for 3H-spiroperidol binding sites, 8-hydroxyloxapine was essentially inactive. The potency of 7-hydroxyloxapine to displace(More)
Amoxapine, an antidepressant with a rapid onset of therapeutic efficacy and great utility in psychotic depression, has been reported to produce anticholinergic side effects in man similar to those observed with imipramine and amitriptyline. To establish its cholinergic disposition, amoxapine and its metabolites 7-hydroxyamoxapine and 8-hydroxyamoxapine,(More)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) stimulates the hydrolysis of inositol phospholipid in rat brain miniprisms. The stimulation was two-fold in the frontal cortex and in the hippocampus, and 1.5-fold in the striatum. NPY produced no significant effects on basal inositol monophosphate levels in hypothalamic miniprisms. However, those basal levels were much higher than in(More)
The potency of structurally rigid analogues of dopamine (DA) at striatal dopamine receptors was evaluated in rats using three types of assessments: (a) effectiveness in producing rotational and sniffing behaviors by intrastriatal injections (b) inhibition of [3H]-spiroperidol binding and (c) stimulation of adenylate cyclase activity. The compounds included(More)
A simple, sensitive, and efficient HPLC method for the determination of calmodulin levels in brain tissue extracts is described. The assay is linear with respect to both calmodulin and protein concentrations. The specificity and validity of this assay for calmodulin is demonstrated by parallel radioimmunoassay determinations which give equivalent results.(More)
Specific [3H]-diazepam binding and [3H]-GABA binding were measured in cortical membranes of untreated rats and rats which had been administered unlabeled diazepam (5.0 mg/kg, IP) thirty minutes prior to sacrifice. Washed and unwashed membranes from control animals showed identical levels of [3H]-diazepam binding. Unwashed membranes of diazepam-treated(More)
