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)
A series of 3-imino-2-indolones are the first published, high-affinity antagonists of the galanin GAL3 receptor. One example, 1,3-dihydro-1-phenyl-3-[[3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]imino]-2H-indol-2-one (9), was shown to have high affinity for the human GAL3 receptor (Ki=17 nM) and to be highly selective for GAL3 over a broad panel of targets, including GAL1(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)
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)
PD 128907 [4a R, 10 b R-(+)-trans-3, 4, 4a, 10 b - tetrahydro - 4- n -propyl2 H,5H-[1]benzop-yrano[4,3-b]1,4-oxazin-9-ol.], a selective dopamine (DA) D3 receptor agonist ligand exhibits about a 1000-fold selectivity for human D3 receptors (Ki, 1 nM) versus human D2 receptors (Ki, 1183 nM) and a 10000-fold selectivity versus human D4 receptors (Ki, 7000 nM)(More)
The di-substituted piperazines, GBR12909 (1-[2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)-methoxy]ethyl]-4-[3- phenylpropyl]piperazine) and GBR12935 (1-[2-(diphenyl-methoxy)-ethyl]-4-(3-phenylpropyl)piperazine), are potent and selective (20-to 100-fold) inhibitors of [3H]dopamine reuptake, relative to [3H]5-HT and [3H]norepinephrine uptake. The GBR12935 analog,(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)
