The tobacco-dependence pharmacotherapies varenicline and cytisine act as partial α4β2 nAChR agonists. However, the extent to which α4β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) mediate their in-vivo effects remains unclear. Nicotine, varenicline, cytisine, and epibatidine were studied in male C57BL/6J mice for their effects on rates of fixed ratio(More)
Some drugs that are positive allosteric nAChR modulators in vitro, desformylflustrabromine (dFBr), PNU-120596 and LY 2087101, have not been fully characterized in vivo. These drugs were examined for their capacity to share or modify the hypothermic and discriminative stimulus effects of nicotine (1mg/kg s.c.) in male C57Bl/6J mice. Nicotine, dFBr, and(More)
