A68930, (1R,3S)-1-aminomethyl-5,6-dihydroxy-3-phenylisochroman HCl, is a potent (EC50 = 2.5 nM), partial (intrinsic activity = 66% of dopamine) agonist in the fish retina dopamine-sensitive adenylate cyclase model of the D1 dopamine receptor. In the rat caudate-putamen model of the D1 dopamine receptor, A68930 is a potent (EC50 = 2.1 nM) full agonist. In(More)
Dopamine (DA) and orexin neurons play important roles in reward and food intake. There are anatomical and functional connections between these two cell groups: orexin peptides stimulate DA neurons in the ventral tegmental area and DA inhibits orexin neurons in the hypothalamus. However, the cellular mechanisms underlying the action of DA on orexin neurons(More)
