The cyclic AMP generating system in slices of the rat limbic forebrain was investigated. In consists of: (u) A noradrenergic system which responds to norepinephrine (NE) and isoproterenol. Though the rise of the nucleotide elicited by isoproterenol is more rapid than that caused by NE, the maximal effect is less than half of that induced by NE; (2) an(More)
Chronic administration of noradrenergic antidepressants causes a desensitization of the beta adrenoceptor coupled adenylate cyclase system. In the present studies, we attempted to answer the question of whether or not this deamplification is reflected beyond the second messenger system. Nuclear CREB-P was determined in frontal cortex of rats following acute(More)
Chronic administration of the norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitor nisoxetine reduced the sensitivity of the NE receptor-coupled adenylate cyclase system in rat cortex. This subsensitivity, unlike that caused by desipramine (DMI), was not related to a reduction in specific beta-adrenergic receptor binding. The specific serotonin reuptake inhibitor(More)
Earlier studies from our laboratory have demonstrated a marked reduction in the brain level of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and in the activity of tryptophan hydroxylase which persists for several weeks after a single dose of 10 mg/kg of p-chloroamphetamine (PCA). In the present study, equally long-lasting decreases were found after the administration of 5(More)
