Reflecting its potent inhibition of serotonin (5-HT) reuptake (accompanying paper), S33005 blocked spontaneous tail-flicks induced by parachloroamphetamine in rats. This action was mimicked by the 5-HT reuptake inhibitor, citalopram, and the 5-HT/norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitor, venlafaxine, whereas the preferential NE reuptake inhibitor, reboxetine,(More)
S33005 displayed marked affinity for native, rat, and cloned human serotonin (5-HT) transporters (SERT) and less pronounced affinity for norepinephrine (NE) transporters (NET), while its affinity at dopamine (DA) transporters and >50 other sites was negligible. Reuptake of 5-HT and (less potently) NE into cerebral synaptosomes was inhibited by S33005,(More)
1. S 16257 is a new bradycardic agent. Its electropharmacological profile has been compared to that of the known bradycardic compound UL-FS 49 (Zatebradine). Intracellular recordings of action potentials (APs) were performed with conventional glass microelectrodes. 2. In the rabbit isolated sino-atrial node (SAN) tissue, S 16257 and UL-FS 49 (1 microM, 3(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ivabradine, a specific and use-dependent I(f) inhibitor, exerts anti-ischaemic activity purely by reducing heart rate. The aim of this work was to characterize its effect on the predominant HCN channel isoform expressed in human sino-atrial nodes (hSAN), to determine its kinetics in HCN channels from multicellular preparations and(More)
In these studies, we characterized the influence of the novel benzodioxopiperazine serotonin (5-HT)1A ligand, S 15535, on the release of 5-HT in rat hippocampus and compared its potential anxiolytic properties with those of the 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist, buspirone, the 5-HT1A antagonist, WAY 100,635 and the benzodiazepine, diazepam (DZM). (Doses are(More)
S18327 was dose-dependently active in several models of potential antipsychotic activity involving dopaminergic hyperactivity: inhibition of apomorphine-induced climbing in mice, of cocaine- and amphetamine-induced hyperlocomotion in rats, and of conditioned avoidance responses in rats. Furthermore, reflecting its high affinity at serotonin(2A) sites,(More)
The mixed 5-HT2A/5-HT2B/5-HT2C receptor agonist, m-(chlorophenyl)piperazine (mCPP), elicited penile erections in rats, an action mimicked by the selective 5-HT2C receptor agonist, RO 60-0175 (S)-2-(6-chloro-5-fluoroindol-1-yl)-1-methylethylamine), whereas the preferential 5-HT2B receptor agonist, BW 723C86 (1-[5-(thienylmethoxy)-1H-3-indoyl] propan-2-amine)(More)
Using [125I]-iodosulpride as a radioligand, the novel naphthofurane, (+/-)-S 11566 [(+/-)-[7-(N,N-dipropylamino)-5,6,7,8-tetra-hydro- naphtho(2,3b)dihydro,2,3-furane]) showed a marked preference for human, recombinant D3 as compared with D2 receptors stably transfected into Chinese hamster ovary cells (Kis = 24/529 nM). This activity resided in its(More)
The novel benzoindane S 18126 possessed > 100-fold higher affinity at cloned, human (h) D4 (Ki = 2.4 nM) vs. hD2 (738 nM), hD3 (2840 nM), hD1 (> 3000 nM) and hD5 (> 3000 nM) receptors and about 50 other sites, except sigma1 receptors (1.6 nM). L 745,870 similarly showed selectivity for hD4 (2.5 nM) vs. hD2 (905 nM) and hD3 (> 3000 nM) receptors. In(More)
The preferential dopamine (DA) D3 versus D2 receptor agonist, (+)-7-OH-DPAT, dose-dependently decreased DA synthesis in the nucleus accumbens, olfactory tubercles, striatum and frontal cortex. This action was potently mimicked by several other high-potency D3 agonists: CGS 15855A, (-)-quinpirole, quinelorane and N-0434. In contrast, piribedil, which(More)
