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)
Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved catabolic mechanism that relieves cellular stress by removing/recycling damaged organelles and debris through the action of lysosomes. Compromised autophagy has been implicated in many neurodegenerative diseases, including retinal degeneration. Here we examined retinal phenotypes resulting from RPE-specific deletion(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)
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)
