PK 11195 [1-(2-chlorophenyl)-N-methyl-N-(1-methylpropyl)-3-isoquinolinecarboxamide] is a new ligand for the "peripheral-type" benzodiazepine binding sites, chemically unrelated to benzodiazepines. It displaces with a very high potency (IC50 congruent to 10(-9) M) [3H]-RO5-4864 (a benzodiazepine which specifically labels the peripheral-type sites) from its(More)
[3H] RO5-4864 binding sites have been characterized in kidney, heart, brain, adrenals and platelets in the rat. In all these organs the following order of potency in the RO5-4864 displacement was found: RO5-4864 greater than diazepam greater than clonazepam indicating that they correspond to the "peripheral type" of benzodiazepine binding sites. PK 11195,(More)
The peripheral-type benzodiazepine binding site, erstwhile characterized in the rodent and feline brain, has now been characterized in post-mortem human brain using [3H]PK 11195. The kinetics and pharmacological properties of the binding of this ligand are similar to peripheral-type benzodiazepine binding sites elsewhere. The potency of RO5-4864 for this(More)
Peripheral type benzodiazepine binding sites have been studied in human and rat platelets and platelet membranes by using PK 11195 (1-(2-chlorophenyl)-N-methyl-N-(1-methyl propyl)-3-isoquinolinecarboxamide) as a ligand. [3H]PK 11195 binding to the intact cells and membranes is saturable, with a high affinity and presents the pharmacological specificity(More)
PK 11195 [1-(2-chlorophenyl)-N-methyl-N-(1-methylpropyl)-3-isoquinolinec arboxamide] is a compound chemically unrelated to benzodiazepines with a high affinity for the "peripheral type" binding sites for benzodiazepines (Le Fur et al., 1983a). [3H]PK 11195 binds to the adrenal membranes with a high affinity (KD congruent to 3 nM) in a specific, reversible(More)
For a better understanding of low molecular weight heparin pharmacokinetics, 99m technetium labelled heparin and enoxaparin were injected intravenously to four normal volunteers, after approval by the Ethics Committee and preliminary animals studies. In vitro and in vivo, the labelled products proved to be stable and identical to the non-labelled drugs.(More)
Two epimer quinoline derivatives, PK 5078 and PK 7059, have been shown to be potent at releasing 5-HT from blood platelets. Moreover PK 5078 was also a potent and selective inhibitor of the uptake of 5-HT, being about 20 times as active as clomipramine. Both drugs, like p-chloroamphetamine, released 5-HT but did not inhibit MAO-A. Whilst p-chloroamphetamine(More)
