The present study determined the biochemical and pharmacological effects of PD 128907 [R-(+)-trans-3,4,4a,10b-tetrahydro-4-propyl-2H,5H- [1]benzopyrano[4,3-b]-1,4-oxazin-9-ol], a dopamine (DA) receptor agonist that shows a preference for the human D3 receptor. In transfected Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO K1), PD 128907 displaced [3H]spiperone in a(More)
The experiments reported in this study tested the hypothesis that tight binding dopamine (DA) reuptake inhibitors might act as cocaine antagonists. Binding studies demonstrated that the high affinity dopamine reuptake inhibitor, 1-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethyl]-4-[3-phenylpropyl]piperazine (GBR12909) produced a wash-resistant inhibition of the DA(More)
Rats were administered various IP doses of the high-affinity dopamine (DA) reuptake inhibitor 1-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethyl]-4-[3-phenylpropyl]piperazine (GBR12909). The caudate nuclei were removed 60 min after drug administration and stored at -70 degrees C. Striatal membranes were prepared later. The results demonstrated that GBR12909 produced a(More)
The effects of triadimefon (TDF) were examined in male Sprague-Dawley rats. In this study, the acute administration of TDF (100 mg/kg) was found to significantly increase locomotor activity and induce stereotyped behavior. Acute administration of TDF was also found to significantly increase dopamine (DA) and homovanillic acid (HVA) levels while the(More)
We studied the characteristics of [3H]cocaine binding to membranes prepared from whole guinea pig brain. Cocaine binding was specific and saturable. A one-site binding model fit the data adequately: the Kd value of [3H]cocaine was 44 nM with a Bmax value of 280 fmol/mg protein. The rank order of potency for the [3H]cocaine binding site was paroxetine >(More)
In order to determine whether repeated cocaine administration produced persistent changes in dopamine (DA) receptor binding and release consistent with behavioral sensitization, rats were treated with either cocaine (25 mg/kg ip) or saline twice daily for 14 consecutive days followed by a 3-d withdrawal period. The DA transporter site was assayed using(More)
The drug 3 beta-[4'-iodophenyl]tropan-2 beta-carboxylic acid methyl ester (RTI-55) is a cocaine congener with high affinity for the dopamine transporter (Kd < 1 nM). The present study characterized [125I]RTI-55 binding to membranes prepared from rat, monkey and human caudates and COS cells transiently expressing the cloned rat dopamine (DA) transporter.(More)
Previous work demonstrated two high-affinity PCP binding sites in guinea pig brain labeled by [3H]TCP (1-(1-[2-thienyl]cyclohexyl)piperidine): site 1 (N-methyl-D-aspartate [NMDA]-associated) and site 2 (dopamine-reuptake complex associated). The present study examined brain membranes prepared from various species, including human, for the presence of site(More)
