(-)-Deprenyl (selegiline), a propargylamine derivative of methylamphetamine, is a potent, irreversible inhibitor of monoamine-oxidase type B (MAO-B). The MAO-B inhibitory effects of various doses (0.1-0.25-0.5 mg/kg) of (-)-deprenyl in rat brain and liver were compared, using either oral or subcutaneous drug administration. The intensity of the first pass(More)
Liquid chromatography (LC) combined with electrochemical detection (EC) is suitable for measuring oxidizable biogenic amine levels in small samples of brain tissue. The norepinephrine (NE) content in mouse hippocampus after treatment with various monoamine oxidase-B enzyme (MAO-B) inhibitors ([-]-deprenyl, [+]-rasagiline, and the noradrenergic neurotoxin(More)
N-(2-chloroethyl)-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine (DSP-4) is a selective noradrenaline (NA) uptake blocker, capable of inducing a long-lasting depletion of NA in some noradrenergic axon terminals originating from the locus coeruleus in rodents. Pretreatment with 7-nitroindazole, a fairly selective inhibitor of neuronal nitric oxide synthase in vivo, partially(More)
The effect of selegiline [(-)-deprenyl] cannot be considered as a simple, selective inhibitor of MAO-B. Pretreatment with the drug prevented the effect of specific neurotoxins like MPTP, 6-OH-dopamine, DSP-4 and AF64A. Selegiline pretreatment prevented the depletion of noradrenaline (NA) induced by DSP-4 in the rat hippocampus. This can be due to the uptake(More)
Treatment with a single oral dose of (−)-deprenyl (selegiline) before DSP-4 administration could dose-dependently decrease the noradrenaline (NA) depleting effect of the toxin in mouse hippocampus. The maximum protective effect was achieved at as low oral dose as 0.25 mg/kg. Pre-treatment with the same doses of the main metabolites of (−)-deprenyl:(More)
Methylamphetamine and amphetamine, the two major metabolites of deprenyl in the rat brain were analyzed using HPLC method combined with electrospray-mass spectrometer. (-)-Deprenyl and (+)-deprenyl were orally administered to rats either in a single dose of 10 mg/kg, or three times a week for three weeks. The metabolites were determined in four different(More)
1. The diffusional permeabilities of collecting duct membranes to THO, 14C-urea and 22Na+ have been measured at different concentrations of urea, NaCl and mannitol. 2. In the absence of urea in perfusate and bath or in its presence in low concentrations, the diffusional permeability to urea was 2.0 (s.e.m. = 0.15, n = 58) micrometer s-1, compared with 0.87(More)
