Physiological, pharmacological, histochemical and biochemical studies indicate that dopamine receptors are heterogenous in the central nervous system with each individual functions. This review describes pharmacological and biochemical characteristics of dopamine receptors, particularly in canine caudate nucleus, which have been studied in our laboratory(More)
A new benzamide, cis-N-(1-benzyl-2-methylpyrrolidin - 3 - yl) - 5 - chloro - 2 - methoxy - 4 - methylaminobenzamide (YM-09151-2) exhibited more potent and longer-lasting inhibitory effects on apomorphine-induced behaviours (stereotyped behaviour, emesis and hypothermia), and methamphetamine-induced stereotyped behaviour, conditioned avoidance response and(More)
Effects of YM-09151-2 and five other neuroleptics (haloperidol, spiperone, chlorpromazine, sulpiride and clozapine) on the binding of [3H]-ligands to nine different receptors (alpha 1-adrenergic, alpha 2-adrenergic, beta-adrenergic, muscarinic, D2-dopaminergic, H1-histaminergic, 5HT1-serotonergic, 5HT2-serotonergic and opiate receptors) and on(More)
Effects of porcine calcitonin on both behavioral and electrophysiological responses of rabbits to painful stimuli were examined. The behavioral pain response (licking reaction) to electrical stimulation of the tooth pulp was suppressed dose dependently by intracerebroventricular administration of calcitonin, 8 and 17 U/kg, but not by intravenous injection(More)
BACKGROUND The Kampo medicine bofutsushosan (BTS; Pulvis ledebouriellae compositae; Fang Feng Tong Sheng San) has been used as an anti-obesity treatment in overweight patients. In this study, we assessed the underlying physiological changes induced by BTS in obese mice maintained on a high-fat diet. METHODS Male ICR mice were fed a 60% kcal fat diet for 5(More)
Two distinct dopamine binding sites, referred to as D1 and D2, exist in canine caudate nucleus, as characterized by [3H]dopamine binding to the synaptic membrane fraction. D1 has the low affinity for dopamine with the dissociation constant of a few micromolar, whereas the affinity for D2 is about two orders of magnitude greater. Classical neuroleptics such(More)
The electrophysiological properties and cataleptogenicity of YM-09151-2 (N-[(2RS, 3RS)-1-benzyl-2-methyl-3-pyrrolidinyl]-5-chloro-2-methoxy-4-methylaminobenzamide) were studied in the cat. This drug inhibited the EEG arousal response to electrical stimulation of the mesencephalic reticular formation with the same potency as that of haloperidol, whereas(More)
Antidepressant properties of a new indene derivative, YM-08054-1, and its related compounds were compared with those of tricyclic antidepressants and viloxazine. The potencies of YM-08054-1 to inhibit uptake of both 14C-norepinephrine (14C-NE) and 14C-5-hydroxytryptamine (14C-5-HT) by the rat brain synaptosomes were similar to those of amitriptyline and(More)
