The pharmacological properties of a novel selective 5-hydroxytryptamine1A (5-HT1A) receptor antagonist, NAD-299 [(R)-3-N,N-dicyclobutylamino-8-fluoro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzopyran-5-carboxamide hydrogen (2R,3R)-tartrate monohydrate] were examined in vitro and in vivo and compared with the reference 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, WAY-100635(More)
Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to sublethal doses of manganese chloride during their postnatal development period up to 44 days of age. They showed transient clinical signs of disease and a decreased homovanillic acid (HVA) content in the striatum and hypothalamus between 15 and 22 days of age. The manganese content in the brain was increased 20-40 times(More)
The solubilisation of membrane proteins from nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-enriched membranes from the electric organ of Torpedo marmorata was studied. Chaotropic ions were shown to be ineffective in extracting peripheral proteins from these membranes. Two different anhydrides, 2, 3-dimethylmaleic and 3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalic anhydride, released(More)
Oxotremorine, a compound widely used as a muscarinic agonist, was found to inhibit binding of 125I-alpha-bungarotoxin to chick myotube nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, IC50 = 79 +/- 5 microM. Oxotremorine also induced a d-tubocurarine sensitive influx of 86Rb in the myotubes (EC50 = 50 +/- 15 microM). Comparative ion-flux studies with carbachol suggested(More)
Using biochemical methods, ATP was shown to induce an inward flux of 86Rb into cultured chick myotubes. A biphasic dose-response curve was observed, the first part of which was saturable and had an EC50 value of approximately 10 microM. beta, gamma-imido ATP inhibited the ATP-induced uptake. ADP, AMP and adenosine were less potent than ATP in producing(More)
An animal model which permits sampling of arterial blood and bile from unanesthetized rats with uninterrupted enterohepatic circulation is described. Pharmacokinetic data concerning inulin (0.2 mumol kg-1) and terbutaline (1.8 mumol kg-1) after intraarterial injection are presented. The following values for inulin were obtained Vdbeta equals 0.25 ml g-1,(More)
The acute effect of manganese on the synaptosomal sodium-dependent choline uptake was studied. Manganese (Mn) revealed a mixed competitive-noncompetitive inhibition of the choline uptake, at Mn concentrations in the mM range. We do not believe that lack of choline for transmitter synthesis is of importance in Mn poisoning. Manganese chloride intubation of(More)
Exposure to manganese compounds often occurs as the result of industrial production or mining. Although manganese appears in traces in animal and human tissue and is essential to certain biological processes, it is also toxic. In humans and animals, toxicity is mainly associated with the nervous system. The mechanism underlying behavioral and biochemical(More)
