Tryptamine derivatives (Ts) were found to inhibit the binding of [³H]MK-801, [³H]ketanserin and [³H]8-OH-DPAT to rat brain membranes. [³H]MK-801 labels the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor, a ionotropic glutamate receptor which controls synaptic plasticity and memory function in the brain, whereas [³H]ketanserin and [³H]8-OH-DPAT label 5HT(2A) and(More)
Tryptamine (T) and several T derivatives (Ts) inhibit in a voltage-dependent manner the NMDA receptor (NR). This effect is influenced by substituents at various positions, but has not yet been subjected to a detailed SAR study. Here, 64 Ts have been tested as inhibitors of [3H]MK-801 binding to NRs on rat brain membranes. For comparison, they were also(More)
